Professional statement

Joey Sorenson is a therapist working primarily with clientele in Austin and Amarillo on issues related to anxiety, depression, career, relationships, and gay and lesbian issues. Though happy to work with a diverse range of clients, Joey specializes in helping young adults seeking renewed fulfillment in their work, love life, and mental as well as physical health. Joey’s clients are often successful professionals who find themselves stressed out or burnt out due to having put their own emotional and psychological needs on the backburner in the service of meeting and exceeding others’ expectations. Having previously been a successful software sales executive prior to his own career transition into counseling, Joey especially enjoys working with sales and marketing professionals and those working in the tech industry.

Joey has training from the Beck Institute in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), considered the gold standard treatment for depression and anxiety. Drawing upon this training, Joey collaborates with clients to identify their core values and goals as well as practical action items to facilitate alignment with them. Along the way, negative self-defeating beliefs and cognitive biases are identified and gently challenged. Sometimes, traumatic experiences or difficult memories can lead to a disconnect between a desire to pursue a goal, and the emotional or somatic reality of doing so. In such situations, Joey draws upon his training in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) to help facilitate the client’s calming of their nervous system, enabling them to obtain clarity on the situation and a fuller understanding of what they really want.

Having worked with over 140 clients, Joey has been honored to witness remarkable change and growth on the part of those he’s helped. He has immediate availability for in-person sessions in Amarillo and telehealth appointments in Austin and throughout Texas.

Message to clients

One of the great joys in my work is bearing witness to my clients moving from a place of fear that something is different or wrong about them, to boldly pursuing their passions, interests, and relationships with joy, contentment, and often a lot of laughter! This process does not occur overnight, but I find that it is not unusual for strong rapport and a solid therapeutic alliance to be established within the first few sessions.

Some clients come to therapy working on a specific and time-limited issue, like a career change or a relationship issue. Others come looking to generally reignite their zest for life after coming to grips with a slowly building sense of stuck-ness, or fear that life is passing them by. Whatever your goals in working with me, I will consider it my honor and sacred responsibility to accompany you on your journey in a collaborative and supportive way, while also challenging you to hold yourself accountable to your stated values and goals when helpful and appropriate.

You’re not alone, and you’re not stuck where you are forever. Give me a call, and let’s get to work.
