Jonathan Holmsten, MS, LPC, NCC, DCC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Austin
I believe in client feedback for setting goals and evaluating whether therapy is working for them. It's not my goals or "success rate" that is important but what the client believes. I value working with clients who know what a 'better life' will look like, will work on getting there and will provide feedback. Of course I'm there to provide help when stuck but I need clients to provide their feedback and be engaged in the therapeutic process.
I've ended up having a lot of diverse clinical experiences from elementary school, psychiatric hospitals, medical school, anger management groups and private practice. Each of these experiences has brought new depth to my practice and help me to work with lots of different people.
I enjoy both short term solution focused work and depth psychology exploring deeper issues. I want clients to let me know if they want brief, long term, or intermittent work. I am also a Distance Credentialed Counselor, meaning I have training to provide quality, ethical therapy by video or phone as needed.
