Kathryn Whistler Austin, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Austin
NOW ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS! My ideal client is an adult who has experienced childhood trauma that is currently effecting their ability to build healthy relationships, maintain emotional balance, or pursue their goals. I enjoy working with people as they move through life transitions, anything from the loss of a loved one to identity milestones.
I specialize in adults with attachment trauma, meaning someone who has experienced abuse, neglect, or some other traumatic incident in relation to another person in their childhood or recently. I enjoy working with mood issues such as anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder.
I have a powerful yoga and meditation practice that influence the way I live my life and work with clients. It is an honor to be given the opportunity to sit with someone in their most vulnerable moments and work to better understand their experience and support their growth.
