Professional statement

Brianda García is a mental health therapist specializing in anxiety, depression, and identity work. Immediately meeting her, you will notice a blend of empathy, investment, and genuine concern in her feedback. With her guidance, you will feel safe and comfortable during session, which will allow you to express yourself willingly in session. Rest assured, confidentiality covers our conversations in session to stay between us. So, speak to her in English, Spanish, or Spanglish, she is comfortable code-switching and has a Mexican-American background.

Brianda's counseling style primarily revolves around two modalities: person-centered and psychodynamic approaches. This means talk therapy with long-term goals, which are paused when emergent topics come up. Adding creative activities, journaling, and even games is what makes my counseling sessions different from others. Additionally, with permission, we explore a client’s upbringing to answer questions identifying triggers that can cause stress.

Start the counseling process and reach out to schedule a FREE phone consultation! Currently, Brianda offers both virtual session to Texas residents and in-person sessions in Austin, TX. Using the Zoom platform, online sessions are available Tuesday-Fridays afternoons/evenings and Saturday mornings. In-person sessions are held in an office located near Barton Creek Mall and are hosted Thursday and Friday afternoons/evenings and Saturday mornings. Brianda is an ally of the LGBTQ+ community and offers reduced rates to the BIPOC community.

Brianda’s clientele typically consists of clients as young as 13 years old and anyone who gravitates working with a youthful and patient counselor. If you choose to work with her, you will learn how to strengthen your boundaries, cultivate optimistic thinking, and establish coping skills to self-soothe your anxiety and/or depression. So be sure to reach out and ask about availability!


Message to clients

Hello and welcome! Embarking on the journey of therapy is a courageous step towards self-discovery and healing. I want you to know that your decision to seek support is both valid and commendable. As we begin our counseling sessions, it's essential to understand that this space is yours – a judgment-free zone where you can openly explore your thoughts, emotions, and experiences.

Therapy is a collaborative process, and your active participation is key. Feel free to share at your own pace and remember that there is no right or wrong way to express yourself. It's okay to bring up whatever is on your mind, even if it seems insignificant or overwhelming. Our sessions are tailored to meet your unique needs, and my goal is to provide a safe and empathetic environment where you can gain insights, develop coping strategies, and foster personal growth.

It's normal to experience a range of emotions throughout this process – from relief and hope to moments of discomfort or uncertainty. Trust the process and know that it's okay to communicate any concerns or questions you may have along the way. Together, we'll work towards your goals, and I'm here to support you every step of the way.
