Recommedations for CBT therapists in Austin?
October 28, 2008 10:00 AM   Subscribe

I have a friend who suffers from anxiety and panic disorder. She currently sees a therapist, but is interested in a more structured approach. Does anyone have a recommendation for a female therapist in Austin, TX who specializes in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy? I would also be interested in getting recommendations for brief inpatient programs.

I did a little bit of digging around - found someone who could be a match - though I haven't had any experience with her or know of her other than what I read. What you can do is have your friend call her and ask if she can have a free consult with her - and see if she feels comfortable with her etc. etc. That's one option - the other is to check out the links on the page that I'm putting the link to HERE. Someone, someplace who can help will surface.

Good luck to your friend.

Here's a page with national CBT association's "Find a therapist" pages.

In Austin, the best inpatient program I know of is Seton Shoal Creek. The psychiatrist I work with used to practice there. I see from their website that they also have an outpatient therapy program. I don't have any personal experience with them, it's just some patient reports and professional hearsay, but I haven't heard anything bad.
