Lora Ferguson, MA, LPC-S

AFC Founder

I founded Austin Family Counseling as a way to help more families find peace and joy.  I truly hope that you will find AFC to be a caring and hopeful place for you to work through the pain, sadness, loss, or struggle that brought you to us.  My own life journey inspired me to help others, and I am so thankful that I get to work each day with people like you who have the courage to change. 

I graduated from the University of Arkansas with a B.A. in Psychology and later obtained my Master’s Degree in Counseling from St. Edward’s University here in Austin.  I’ve been in private practice since 2008, and I’m passionate about providing great therapy through all the seasons of life.  I work especially well with teens, young adults, couples, parents, and families.  I look forward to taking the next step with you!
