Tragically, we lost Christie on 10/31/2018.  Her unexpected death has left us reeling with shock.  She was a wonderful mother and friend, and a gifted clinician.
If you or your child were a client of Christie’s, please feel free to reach out to us for support.  Lakeway Counseling Center and other local Lakeway Clinicians are offering pro bono sessions and referrals for services to those impacted by this tremendous loss.  
Please call Sallie at (512) 576-1604 if you would like to come in to process this loss, or you need referrals to additional resources.

"Instead of seeing the rug being pulled from underneath us, we can learn to dance on a shifting carpet."
Thomas Crum
 
Whether it is life challenges, obstacles or transitions that are prompting you to seek counseling, today you are one step closer to your personal journey of growth and healing.  Fear of change is a natural feeling, but can prevent us from letting go of old beliefs, behaviors, ways of being and situations that are no longer beneficial to our wellbeing.
As a therapist, I use complementary approaches personalized to your specific needs in a compassionate, safe and confidential space.  I work with individuals, adolescents, couples and families and have experience helping those suffering from the far-reaching effects of addiction within the family, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, divorce, relationship issues and trauma.
 It is my passion and honor to collaborate with you in uncovering the blocks to your true potential and moving towards leading a life worth celebrating.

Kelly Alford LPC Intern
supervised by Sallie E. Ingle MA LPC-S

Kelly is a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern with over a decade of experience in the world of education.  As a teacher and school counselor she has worked with hundreds of teenagers and parents. It was during this time in education that Kelly noticed a great need to help students and families deal with the stress of balancing school, extra-curricular activities, social needs, and family relationships.  This experience inspired her shift from education to professional counseling.
“It takes courage to reach out when you are in need.  Everyone has a story or struggles that need to be dealt with, it is a universal human issue.  I have always been drawn to listening to others and helping them process life challenges and achieve goals.  I am here to partner with you to focus on understanding your true self to work through difficult issues. Developing a sense of true self helps us stay centered even in the messiest of times.” -Kelly
