Mary Moore, LPC

Mary Moore View Specialties

Before becoming a psychotherapist, I was a magazine writer. One of my favorite parts of the job was facilitating others' stories from a new, empowered perspective.

Along with general psychotherapy, we offer EMDR and specialize in the treatment of depression and anxiety, grief, PTSD and trauma recovery as well as reproductive issues. Lake Austin Psychotherapy also provides Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy for treatment resistant depression and PTSD under the medical guidance of a board certified emergency physician with over 20 years of experience with ketamine administration. While Ketamine assisted therapy has gained popularity, we strictly follow the clinical trial protocols that proved its efficacy, and we perform medical and psychological screenings as well as post-treatment clinical observation to ensure safety.

Stories evolve as they are told. People evolve as they are heard. As a therapist, I strive for an individualized approach to care. Rather than a reflection of content, I believe therapy should feel like an insightful collaboration—a conversation versus broad clinical conceptualizations.

Professional development is important to me as a clinician. I am trained in Prolonged Grief Therapy by the Center for Complicated Grief at Columbia University and in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy by Harvard Medical School-affiliated Massachusetts General Psychiatric Academy. I served as a member of the Professional Task Force of the American Counseling Association and am an associate member of EMDRIA (The EMDR International Association) which upholds the highest standard of EMDR for clinical use. I'm also a member of Somatic Experiencing® International and the Texas Counseling Association. I have written about mental health issues for a variety of outlets including The New York Times, Glamour, Self, Marie Claire and The Huffington Post. I have also appeared as a regular television consultant for Good Day New York, NY1 and Lifetime Television.
