Austin TX Counselor And Psychotherapist

We don’t just hear – we listen.

You may be presented with a perplexing, frightening, or intolerable situation. No one goes untouched by life’s unfolding. During these periods of unrest, speaking with a professional counselor can be a source of support, insight and an opportunity for enduring change.

My name is Louis Laves-Webb LCSW, LPC-S

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.

Discover how our theoretical approach can benefit you:

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
  • Strengths-Based models
  • Narrative work
  • Existential (logotherapy)
  • Transpersonal models
  • Cultural models
  • Systems-based models
  • Oppression-based models
  • Client-Centered approaches
