In my practice, I work with individuals seeking personal insight, relief from anxiety or depression, and a variety of mental health concerns. I also work with couples and other relationships in whatever forms they take. My training included two years at Haight Ashbury Psychological Services (or "HAPS," where I now serve as President of the Board of Directors) and UCSF Alliance Health Project (AHP, where I also work as a psychotherapist). I'm glad to have the opportunity to bring my work into a private practice setting. I have many years of experience with the LGBTQ+ community, and I continue my work as part of the AHP Gender Team to provide services for trans and gender-expansive clients as well as others. I have presented at conferences and organizational meetings about cultural humility and working with gender issues.
My therapy style is integrative, working with each client to create a treatment plan that fits their specific needs. Generally, I combine psychodynamic work with a strong client-centered/person-centered (Rogerian) orientation.

I founded the nonprofit Human Potential Center in Austin 31 years ago, based on Humanistic Psychology, and in particular the work of Carl Rogers, Abraham Maslow and Virginia Satir.

For more information on the Center, visit HumanPotentialCenter.org.
I received a Master of Arts in Humanistic and Transpersonal Psychology from Johnston College in Redlands, California in 1978. I feel kind of lonely for other person-centered contacts here in central Texas, so if you ever visit, stop by!

Lisa Namm, M.S., NCC, LAC Introduction:
I have a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a Specialization in Trauma and Crisis from Walden University and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology with a Minor in Social and Criminal Justice from Ashford University. I have also earned the National Certified Counselor certification from the National Board of Certified Counselors, Inc. I enjoy all aspects of learning and school, but my favorite part of higher education is the continued exposure to new research in the field of counseling and psychology. I believe the most challenging aspect of being a student was balancing school, work and family life. I quickly learned that time management is essential.
During my internship, I worked at West Valley Family Development Center, an outpatient counseling facility where I was supervised by Vaun Williams, LPC. My cliental consisted of the general community. Of this are people who were primarily of African American, Latino/Latina, and Caucasian decent.The ages of the clients I saw ranged from 5 to 90-years-old. Many factors varied from person to person such as their occupation, socioeconomic status, education, and demographic residence. Diagnoses targeted at my site included depression, anxiety, adjustment and relational issues, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, oppositional defiance disorder, selective mutism, and bipolar disorder. I have enjoyed many aspects of the differentpopulations I have worked with. The counseling field has afforded me opportunities to work with diverse clients, diagnoses and treatment modalities.
In my spare time I enjoy watching movies and HGTV on television, swimming, cookingand traveling. I also enjoy spending time with my family. I have a wonderfully large blended family beginning with a 33 year-old daughter, 32 year-old daughter, a 28 year-old son, twin daughters who are 22 years-old, a 24 year-old step-daughter and 22 year-old step-daughter plus my amazing husband. Our family also includes one dog, Murphy, a Yorkie-Poo, one cat, Carina, and two birds, Ecko, a Noble Macaw and Pojo, a White-faced Lutino Cockatiel who sings Twinkle-twinkle Little Star. I have lived in the Phoenix area since separating from the Marine Corps in 1994, having relocated from Camp LeJeune, N.C. I love Arizona and would like to retire with split residency here and Texas. ______________________________________________________________________
Why I Decided on this Field
I decided to become a counselor because of my strong commitment and drive to help others. I have enjoyed helping people put the pieces together in a new way that results in a perceptual shift, and permanent positive change. In terms of how I look at the mental health profession now and those who seek counseling, I look at things not only from what might be reinforcing unhealthy behaviors (behaviorism), but also unhealthy thoughts (cognitive), and how these all relate together to go and make up the individual human being sitting in front of me (humanistic). In eclecticism, there is no one right or guaranteed way of approaching any given problem. Each problem is tainted and changed by that individual’s own history and way of viewing or perceiving his or her own problem. Therapists must be flexible, sometimes working as a teacher for one client, as a guide for another, or as a combination of all of the above for yet another. I embrace this diversity.
I am a qualified counsellor currently working in private practice. I have a special interest in working with trauma, specifically adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse and am passionate about the person-centred approach to counselling and life in general.

Nicole L. Thompson, MA.
I am currently a fourth year Doctoral student in the Counseling Education and Supervision Program.

I earned by Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology in Chicago, Illinois. I am currently credentialed by the Wisconsin Dept. of Safety and Professional Services and the National Register and Health Service Psychologists. I currently provide outpatient psychological services at Aurora Behavioral Health Center in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, a small city just a few miles west of Milwaukee. I have a diversity of training (e.g., psychodynamic, client-centered, CBT, DBT, Interpersonal Process Groups, etc.) and integrate my broad skillset with an underlying philosophy guided by Rogers' core conditions. It has been experience that these conditions - when experienced by the therapist and experienced by the patient - ultimate an environment that allows for the deepest and most meaningful change for both the client and oftentimes for myself.
