Irons Counseling & Supervision
Hi, I’m Lindsey Irons. I am both a Licensed Professional Counselor and an LPC supervisor.
After attending Rhodes College in Memphis, TN, I received my Masters from The University of Texas in Austin. I have been a licensed Professional counselor (LPC) since 2004 and a supervisor of LPC-Interns since 2008. After many years in the non-profit world working with sexual assault and domestic violence survivors, and adolescence and families in crisis, I went into private practice. I host three office suites and rent out to other highly skilled and professional therapists. If I’m not the right fit, I can help you find them. Contact me at email@example.com.
For Clients: I provide effective relational therapy on a private pay basis. I believe the relationship between therapist and client is the key to positive outcomes. The safety and confidentiality of the therapeutic relationship allow clients the freedom to explore their past to understand their present and create a happier future. If you are interested in finding out more about me or the therapeutic process, please contact me. I also have several highly qualified LPC-Interns that are willing and able to provide therapy on a sliding scale basis.
For LPC-Interns: Irons Counseling and Supervision is a great place to gain your supervision and therapeutic experience. Graduate school is just the beginning of your amazing journey to become a therapist. You have the book knowledge now but supervision is where you learn what to do with all of it and how to incorporate it into practice. We will also work to develop the WHOLE you. The therapist part of you with the non-therapist so that you can go out into your daily life without analyzing everyone and everything you see. Trust me, finding the balance here will make all the difference. I supervise those employed outside of ICS and I hire Interns to work in my practice. If you are ready to start supervision, please consider ICS.
I decided to become a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern (LPC-I) after a lifetime spent pursuing the quality of authenticity to reduce negative feelings such as fear, anxiety, and depression. Brene Brown insightfully says that “authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It’s about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.” I have found that cultivating authenticity tends to reduce negative feelings, help us make the right life choices, and connect us to others out there in the world.
In a session with me as your counselor, what you see is what you get. I model authenticity by being present with my clients. You’ll find me to be compassionate, empathetic, perseverant, and even silly at times. I’m a strong believer in the power of talk therapy to ‘get the poison out’ – poison in the form of fear, anxiety, depression, worry, and feeling stuck. I will help you improve your self-esteem, enhance your communication skills, manage your emotions better, and give you overall more control over your life.
Whether you’re an individual, a couple, or a family, I have room for you. Together, we can face those challenges that are in your life. I’m an open-minded, nonjudgmental kind of person, so I’ll make you feel safe to explore your thoughts and feelings, and we can move forward together. I have experience in mental health, couple intimacy, family dynamics, trauma, and I welcome all people, all types of relationship (both monogamous and polyamorous), and all sexual preferences (such as LGBTQ+). I am currently working to acquire my AASECT Sex Therapy Certification through the Southwest Sexual Health Alliance.
I use a Sex Positive and Solution Focused approach. I believe that all people have the strengths within themselves to solve their own issues. I’m not there to tell them what to do – I’m there to guide them through this process. We all have the strength to create fulfilling lives and satisfying intimate relationships, as long as we eliminate the elements of fear, shame, and judgement from our lives and become our most authentic selves.
If you’re ready to give therapy a try, I’m looking forward to meeting you and guiding you through the therapeutic process. Please contact me at 512-293-4908 or firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope to meet you soon.
I am drawn to the field of counseling because I have repeatedly seen the impact of being heard and feeling understood. I believe that talk therapy can provide relief and solace for everyone and allow them to feel comfortable in their own skin.
While serving through an ethical and multicultural lens, I hope to provide a safe and comfortable space for people to explore their deepest thoughts and feelings with me.
I am drawn to person-centered approaches that foster empathy and compassion. I also have additional training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Exposure Therapy, the Gottman Method Couples Therapy — Level 1, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy. With that, I recognize that other approaches and interventions are helpful and will implement those when appropriate. I believe that everyone is their own expert, and my role is to support people in utilizing their expertise to become more self-aware, gain personal insight, and achieve growth.
