She/Her/HersLicensed Professional Counselor Associate, LPC-A Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Brianda García is a first-generation, Mexican-American therapist whose practice is primarily focused on generational trauma, identity and belonging, and anxiety-related concerns. By cultivating a strong, trusting relationship with her clients, she guides them in exploring thoughts that bring shame and embarrassment. If the underlying reasons for a client’s distress are unknown, Brianda’s genuine personality provides a comforting and safe environment for a client to reflect on fearful thoughts. So speak to her in English, Spanish, or Spanglish, she is comfortable with code-switching.
Brianda García’s counseling style is primarily based on two modalities: person-centered and psychodynamic approaches. Long-term goals are established at the beginning of the therapeutic process but may be placed on pause to work through unexpected situations. Additionally, the process may also include digging into one’s upbringing to learn more about the client’s current identity and how the individual processes life’s obstacles. Perception is important to improvement!
She is currently offering both virtual and in-person counseling sessions in the Austin area. Using the Zoom platform, telehealth sessions can be scheduled with her in the evenings during Tuesday-Fridays or Saturday morning. In-person sessions are typically hosted Thursday and Friday afternoon/evenings and Saturday mornings. With the goal of increasing mental health awareness in the BIPOC community, Brianda provides affordable counseling to those struggling financially but recognize the importance of mental health.
Brianda García’s clientele typically consists of those interested in working with a youthful, empathetic, and genuine counselor. Learn to strengthen boundaries, cultivate optimistic thinking patterns to counter anxiety/depression, and create a positive self-identity by attending counseling sessions with her.
