Laura Rushing, LCSW
I believe everyone has the capacity to heal and change. Effective therapy is a collaborative process where we work to identify and address the obstacles preventing you from having the life you want. I want my clients to know they have the tools necessary to reach their full potential. People are not not defined by what has happened to them; they are defined by who they choose to become.
My goal is to create a space where people feel safe exploring their feelings without fear of judgment. My communication style is warm but direct and I believe in the power of an awkward conversation. Helping people learn how to communicate assertively across environments is at the foundation of my practice. I communicate frequently to make sure my clients feel like they are making progress towards their goals.
I am a native Austinite that enjoys spending as much time as possible outdoors with my family. I love trying new recipes, running Town Lake, exploring Austin’s food scene and speaking Spanish as often as I can.
