Wilderness Therapy & Adventure-Based Counseling
Austin was born near Washington D.C. and raised in Sarasota, Florida, which he claims has the state’s best beaches. He moved to Orlando in 2009 to attend the University of Central Florida where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology before completing his master’s degree in counseling in 2015.
Since he was a teenager, Austin has sought to understand what it means to live a full, meaningful life and what prevents us from this experience. He learned early on that such big questions could not be explored to their depth by simply reading a book, taking a course or remaining comfortable. This inspired Austin to spend over a decade intentionally pursuing a life outside his comfort zone where his worldview expanded, his heart softened and his wisdom grew.
A few of Austin’s experiences during that time include providing wilderness therapy in the South Carolina juvenile justice system, counseling individuals affected by HIV/AIDS in Malawi, developing therapeutic programs at a German refugee camp for those fleeing ISIS, acting as a point-person in Orlando for LGBTQ+ youth following the Pulse tragedy, and working with the Church of England to address their growing mental health crisis. Most recently, Austin has worked four years as the mental health counselor at a local Title I middle school.
What began as an angsty teen seeking answers to life’s big questions has slowly transformed into an appreciation for the journey itself, a pursuit not for answers but for learning how to experience presence and fullness in each moment. He recognizes there are so many things interfering with our ability to experience this full life and feels truly honored to be invited into anyone’s journey, wherever they may be and wherever they may be heading.
In his free time, Austin also works at Blue Swan Boulders, a local climbing gym, as the program manager and head climbing coach. He loves climbing, biking, exercising, exploring local coffee shops and breweries, checking out the local art’s scene and, most of all, connecting with people through interesting experiences and conversations.
