IPNB Affiliates 

Welcome to the IPNB Affiliates page. These clinicians have received extensive training with me, and at IPNB psychotherapy of Austin in a variety of ways. These clinicians are in independent practice and so their policies and work might differ a bit from what we do here. Having said that, I cannot recommend these clinicians highly enough. If one of them feels like a good fit to you, know you will be in good hands.

In my work, I share the tools that have helped me to trust myself and trust the flow of life, even in the midst of strong emotions. Learning to pause and be present with whatever thoughts and feelings arise has dramatically shifted what I believe and how I live. With practice, we can each learn to move from resisting to allowing unpleasant emotions and be curious about how they are pointing us toward deeper authenticity with ourselves and others. My personal work allows me to serve as a compassionate witness to my clients’ process as they learn to go inside, slow down their minds, and connect with the healing place within themselves.

My work as a therapist is to build a supportive and collaborative relationship with you. Our relationship is the foundation for the healing and exploration of your mind. Effective psychotherapy can be, at times, uncomfortable, but it is in the service of improving your relationship with yourself and making your life happier and more meaningful.

Jennifer Alley, LPC-S

individuals, couples, and groups

I provide faith-sensitive individual, couples, and group counseling for adults experiencing a variety of issues including shame, trauma, grief and loss, relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression, stress reduction, domestic and sexual violence, and life transitions. Faith-sensitive means I will meet you wherever you are in terms of religious or spiritual views. It is my goal that through our work together, you will gain greater clarity and insight into your own internal world, behavior, and strengths, increase your capacity for self-compassion and empathy, and improve your relationships and connection with others while decreasing negative symptoms and behaviors. 

 

I love learning and integrating neuroscience and psychoeducation into our sessions. I believe that change and healing are possible through the therapeutic relationship itself as well as through insight paired with intention and practices that reinforce new learnings and desired ways of being. My practice’s mantra is to Find Hope, Help, & Healing.
