Austin has five years of clinical experience working with adults, children, and families in community mental health, residential care, and within student ministries at his church. He earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology and Biblical Theology from Multnomah University and a Master of Arts in Counseling from Western Seminary.
It takes a lot of energy to be in full time leadership or to live outside of your home country. Knowing this struggle, Austin has volunteered with multiple churches and ministries to provide wholistic care for those in Japan, Italy, and Mexico. He also taught English in some communities to help reduce Italy’s 50% unemployment rate.
Change is hard, especially when trying to do it alone. Austin’s hope is to walk with you through any transition, self-improvement, or lasting change that you want to make in your life. To reach this positive improvement, Austin walks people through Evidence-Based practices and techniques that are Client-Centered, Strength Focused, and Relational in nature. These approaches can help those struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, transitions, men’s issues, spiritual problems and much more. Austin also believes that change with a partner can lead to lasting happiness so if there is a need for Couples, Pre-Marital, or Marriage counseling, Austin is GOTTMAN and Prepare & Enrich trained.
Austin provides in-person, as well as telehealth, at both our Oregon and Washington locations.
