Tiffany Austin, MA, LCMHCA

Tiffany sees individuals throughout the lifespan beginning at 3 years old. She is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate in the state of North Carolina. She graduated from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary with a Master of Arts in Christian Counseling. Tiffany earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing and a Minor in Psychology from Purdue University.  Tiffany believes that life is about connection to our self and relationship with others. Struggles and symptoms arise when relationships and connections are faltering between one’s mind and body, and with others.  Personal growth and healing can be facilitated and experienced in a therapeutic relationship.  Tiffany’s desire is to assist clients with gaining greater self-awareness, emotional fluency, improved relationships, and a deeper connection to daily life by incorporating left and right brain modalities.

Tiffany utilizes trauma informed, insight-oriented approaches to guide therapy. This may include EMDR, Internal Family Systems, Psychodynamic Therapy, as well as the use of Sandtray and/or other expressive techniques. Children process their inner and outer world through the language of play therefore, Tiffany utilizes Child-Centered Play Therapy when developmentally indicated, generally 3-9 years old.

More About Me

I practiced nursing in the ICU and worked within the corporate community of medical device sales before starting my family. I am thrilled to be able to share my life-long love of growth and healing with others.  I am originally from the Midwest and am happy to call Charlotte “home” for the last 17 years. I have two school-age boys, and in my free time I enjoy time with my family and friends, sunny days outside, chocolate and Diet Coke! Ever since grade school I have had a strong interest in “all things psychology” and “why we do what we do.”  I feel fortunate for the opportunity to integrate my medical knowledge and psychotherapy training with my (w)holistic view of people consisting of mind, body, and soul within a larger familial and societal system.  My unique integrated graduate training affords the opportunity for spiritual integration for those who desire to do so, regardless of your spiritual orientation.
