Hi. I'm Tammany.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), and I have nearly a decade of experience providing mental health services to individuals with a range of life experiences. This includes individual psychotherapy as well as employee assistance program counseling, performing intakes and assessments in an outpatient psychiatric setting, and providing case management and psychosocial support in inpatient and outpatient settings at Dell Children's Medical Center.
One of the key components of effective therapy is ensuring the relationship between client and therapist feels right. We will work collaboratively to identify concerns in your life causing distress and to evaluate effective strategies to move you forward. Our sessions will be tailored to you. I believe you are the expert of your own life, and I will work to help facilitate discovery, understanding, change, and/or acceptance in a way that is most comfortable for you, starting wherever you are. Whereas I do not take a "one size fits all" approach with my clients, my practice is informed by evidence-based techniques, including solution-focused therapy, motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
I received my Master's degree in Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin and my Bachelor's degree in Communication Studies from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I continue to invest in opportunities for professional growth and regularly participate in consultation, continuing education, and training opportunities. I also stay connected with other professionals in my field and am currently a member of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and Austin IN Connection.
