Monrovia C Van Hoose, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Austin
I believe that people come into counseling with their own solutions. My job is to create a unique therapy for each individual to help them uncover and build upon strengths they already possess. I seek to make the therapy room a safe & non-judgmental place for all emotional experiences, and a place to make peace with parts of ourselves that we fear & dislike. As clients build compassion for themselves, they find their compassion for others growing, and the strength to examine & change their lives for greater happiness & fulfillment.
I was the Clinical Director at Out Youth Austin from 2008 - 2012 where I provided individual, family, and group therapy to LGBT adolescents and young adults for a variety of issues, including sexual orientation, gender identity, depression, anxiety, suicidality, academic struggles, self-harm, romantic relationships, family relationships, boundaries, and more.
I place a high priority on continuously improving my cultural competence & working to make therapy accessible to diverse populations. I have been in private practice full time since October 2012 and welcome individuals and families of all backgrounds, genders, relationship formations, and sexual orientations.
