Discovering Possibilities for Change
The ApaCenter (or Austin Psychology & Assessment Center) was formed in 2007 by Dr. Mike Brooks with the purpose of providing the highest standard of psychological services to children, adolescents, and adults in the Austin and Central Texas communities.
The ApaCenter offers a broad range of psychological services including:
- Individual, couples, family, and group therapy
- Psychological assessments
- Educational support
- Life coaching
We have a number of mental health professionals with diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise. Our idea is that, if you have a need, we have the right professional who can help.
We specialize in a number of areas including:
- Emotional Well-Being (e.g., depression, anxiety, anger management, stress, relationship difficulties; improving happiness, sense of peace, and life satisfaction)
- Dyslexia & Other Learning Disabilities
- Autism Spectrum Disorders (including Asperger’s Syndrome)
We are client-centered in our philosophy. That is, we know that you possess many strengths, resources, and resiliencies. We believe that the most effective way to help you achieve your goals is to partner with you in discovering possibilities for growth and change.
Although we use the best, scientifically-validated techniques in our work with you (e.g., cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, solution-oriented therapy, positive psychology practices), we know that flexibly adapting to your specific needs is critical to gaining the positive outcomes that you desire. As our client, we always keep you at the center of the change process.
