Ellen Meystedt, LPC-A Supervised by Karen Burke LPC-S

Life if full of unexpected twists and turns, and everyone has different experiences that shape us into who we are.  I truly believe that empathy, genuineness, and connection help form a therapeutic alliance that can guide clients to reaching the goals that they wish accomplish.  My goal as a therapist is to help you accomplish your goals as best as I can. It takes a very brave person to step into therapy, and oftentimes once one does the benefits are incredible.  I believe that you must put into the therapy what you wish to see come out of it. 

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management from Southeast Missouri State University in 2017. After working in this career field for several years I decided I wanted to study psychology and become a therapist. I received my Master’s degree in Counseling from St. Edward’s University in 2021. While in my Master’s program I completed both my practicum and internship at Austin State Hospital. During my time at the hospital I served clients who were struggling with severe, chronic, and often co occurring mental illness. I saw clients between the ages of 8 y/o – 65 y/o. 

As I was studying at St. Edward’s, I worked part-time as a nanny for a few different families in the Austin area. Working as a nanny has provided me with very valuable experience and education that I use today when seeing children and parents in the therapeutic setting. 

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and dog.  I like to spend time outdoors, traveling to places I’ve never been before, watching movies, reading for pleasure (I’m a big Harry Potter fan), and baking!
