Amanda E Dishner, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Austin
I enjoy working with clients of all types, and specialize in helping adult children with changes in relationships with their parents, families who have a special needs child, and LGBTQ individuals/couples/families. As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I work with all units of the family system to improve each member's support network. I also like working with other systems, such as co-workers, roommates, and groups of friends. Working with individuals of all ages and incorporating couples and/or group sessions can create the extra support many families need.
I have found a niche in supporting families through stressful life events and assisting in strengthening their relationships. I use a variety of therapeutic interventions, individually catered, to assist in finding self-care, growth, and balance through all of life's events.
I offer individual sessions, couples sessions, and group sessions with 3 or more family members. Sessions are 50 or 75 minutes and can be scheduled on the hour or half-hour.
