Grow With Us at Austin Family Counseling

At Austin Family Counseling, we recognize the growing need for mental health services in Austin. Since Austin Family Counseling is well-known within the community, we receive many calls and emails requesting our services everyday. However, many of our clinicians are at full capacity, resulting in people being turned away or referred elsewhere. 

As such, we want to grow our practice to meet this ever-increasing need. We are looking for individuals who desire to join a supportive and culturally inclusive community and share Austin Family Counseling’s values of competency, connection, and care. If you are interested in learning more about Austin Family Counseling, please contact our Operations Manager, Caitlin O’Keefe, at [email protected].
