Erik Volper, LCSW

Senior Counselor
Austin TX
I work with clients utilizing countertransference, a psychodynamic approach, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I make sure to fit the modality to the client and not the client to the modality. I help them decide which modality would be most helpful and sometimes draw from all or some modalities to help them improve their lives and reach their therapeutic goals.
I began my work as a social worker and psychotherapist after graduating with my Master's in Social Work in 2008 at a outpatient psychiatric clinic in Brooklyn, New York. There I provided psychotherapy to individuals and groups based at a city hospital. After five years at the hospital I wanted a new challenge and began work at an agency that provided mental health treatment to middle and high school students across New York City. After spending a year doing work in schools, I decided that I wanted to gain more experience facilitating group therapy and worked for an agency that ran groups at high schools students in Austin. During this time, I also trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy at the Beck Institute in Philadelphia. After completing my CBT training to treat depression and Anxiety, I joined a private group practice where I currently work with adults and adolescents who work to address issues ranging from depression, to anxiety, to social relationships, to difficult finding their identity.
I offer individual and process groups to adults and adolescents
