Hello, my name is Catherine Stansbury, LMSW. I am a social worker and an EMDR Trained Therapist. I practice at Divine Mercy Counseling, a group practice in Austin, Texas. My clinical supervisor is Melissa Gould, LCSW-S. I specialize in trauma therapy for individual adults, ages 18-100. I have a special interest in older adults and their caregivers, since caregiving is what led me to become a social worker. It is my honor and my joy to work with persons who have carried terrible burdens of trauma and pain for many years; and to help them unload those burdens, and find healing, hope, and peace.

*NOTE: Currently full, but spots open up irregularly. Feel free to inquire.* Although my approach to counseling draws from a variety of models and approaches (including EMDR and interpersonal neurobiology, among others), all are rooted in the fundamental principles of non-judgmental acceptance, authenticity, and experience. Beyond the exploration of old patterns of beliefs and behaviors, my focus is on helping clients find solutions. My ultimate goal as a therapist is to help my clients develop knowledge and tools that will facilitate sustained growth long after therapy has ended.

In times of stress, we tend to forget that healing comes from the inside out! Major changes such as marital conflict, divorce, dementia in a loved one, anxiety, or depression may give more questions than answers. Depth psychology provides deeper understanding of your life. Often solutions are crying out from your own heart if only someone would listen. I will listen and together we will find strategies, resources, and solutions so that you have the life and relationships you want. I offer years of experience working with children and adolescents, families, and crisis intervention. Call for free consultation.

I have worked with adolescents, adults, and the elderly .
How can therapy help me with my problems? That is a question I am sure a lot of people ask themselves when considering therapy. One of my philosophies in life is that although we cannot always control our experiences and circumstances, we can choose our responses to them and delve into how they affect and influence us as humans. Presence is essential. I understand that I cannot change any individual other than myself, but I can act as a vessel or catalyst by truly understanding myself to help another person. My goal is to create an environment where you become the best you as possible by looking into all aspects of your life.

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Are you feeling down or overwhelmed? Do you feel alone in a room full of people? Do you need help with identifying appropriate life goals; developing effective coping skills; improving stress; alleviating depressive symptoms or embracing life. People enter counseling for many reasons, from anxiety, stress, mental health fitness, depression, trauma and grief. Still others are curious to discover more about themselves and keen to enrich their relationships and inner lives. Whatever your circumstances, counseling can be the first step in an empowering journey of self-awareness and change.

If you’re sinking beneath the pressures of childcare, elder care, your career and a personal life, it’s a lot to juggle, and I can help. If you have a chronic or life-threatening disease, I understand the anxiety and sadness. Let’s talk about hope, resilience and who and what you love. Let’s work together to resolve feelings of inadequacy and that pesky habit of self-criticism. Let’s take a look at what’s keeping you depressed and anxious, and begin to heal old hurts, foster new hopes and dreams, and get your body and mind working optimally together. Don’t settle for a life of barely contained overwhelm!

The purpose of therapy is generally straight forward. Individuals seek professional help when conflict in their world causes pain. In the counseling session, clients share their concerns and therapists share their training and professional experience . I believe that it is my responsibility to provide a safe place where clients can talk about their thoughts, feelings and experiences in a non-judgmental atmosphere. My approach is interactive, validating, compassionate and collaborative. Depending on the client and/or the specific situation, I work from a variety of perspectives.
