Whitney Humphrey Counseling
Whitney Humphrey, LMFT, Ph.D.
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I have the privilege working beside children, adolescents, and adults in difficult and often confusing times in their lives. My mission is to provide care and clarity for my clients while honoring their values in a way that strengthens and improves their relationship not only with themselves but their family and friends as well.
I have a Bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M in Psychology and Sociology with an emphasis on the research aspect of medication and drug use/abuse, and obesity and long-term illness effects on children and adolescents. I also have a Master’s of Arts in Counseling from St. Edward’s University. I completed my Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision at The University of Texas at San Antonio researching counseling competencies in working with the geriatric population. I see clients at a private practice located in North-Central Austin and also make home visits to geriatric clients in long-term care facilities. The people I work with come from differing backgrounds and are facing a variety of difficulties in life.
I specialize in working with adolescents and college aged students who are struggling from anxiety and diminished confidence issues that often arise during this time of life. I also focus my treatment on couples who are working towards strengthening their relationship. I am extremely passionate about working with the geriatric population and ensuring ethical treatment is provided to this often times dismissed population.
