Louis Laves-Webb LCSW, LPC-S – Psychotherapist in Austin, TX
I am a licensed clinical social worker supervisor and a licensed professional counselor supervisor with over 20 years of experience providing counseling for individuals, couples, and families. My counseling approach is client-focused and includes being receptive, collaborative, and patient. I build upon your individual strengths and take into consideration your environment and your specific circumstances. Additionally, I work to provide you with a greater understanding, personal insight, and tangible results.
I can be light-hearted when needed while at the same time serious and sincere. Counseling sessions honor your individual process and offer reflection and feedback, allowing you the opportunity to resolve conflicts, enhance your strengths, and ultimately find deeper satisfaction.

Our Approach to Therapy for Austin Residents
The relationship between the therapist and client has repeatedly been shown to be the most effective and powerful component of a successful therapeutic outcome. We work to ensure that the relationship is one of strength, support, growth, and potential. Each session, situation, and client is unique; our clinical approach is based on your individual needs, strengths, and circumstances. We allow for a broad view of human behavior, examining conscious and unconscious drives and motivations. We are a strength oriented practice and respect our clients past experiences together with resiliency and hope for the future. Our theoretical orientation contains multiple “lenses” from which we draw, including the models listed:
- Psychodyamic theories
- Relational models
- Attachment theories
- Emotionally-Focused perspectives
- Cognitive-Behavioral approaches
- Neuro-Biological theories
- Developmental Psychology
- Eastern philosophies
