I need a bus-accessible therapist/grief counselor in Austin, TX

My dad was recently diagnosed with lung and spinal cancer. The same week, my grandfather had a heart attack and because of poor hospital care and other complications has suffered permanent brain damage, putting him in a psychotic state, and the doctors are pretty sure he'll never be normal again. My other grandfather passed away this March (thank goodness, just of old age at the ripe old age of 94).
I'm also a graduate student TAing for the first time this semester, so I've got quite a bit of stress to look forward to (I do not want to take a semester off, as I don't know what I'd do with myself). I'd like to find a great therapist in the central Austin area to help me through this difficult time. I sign up for new health insurance September 1st (I think it will be Blue Cross Blue Shield), so I need the best bang for my buck.
I am also without a car, and don't have a huge amount of time to spend commuting. I've looked up several recommended therapists from Ask Mefi but most of them are inaccessible by public transportation.
If anyone has any suggestions for my specific needs, please let me know.
