Ryan Austin has a Bachelor of Science in Psychology at the University of Georgia and a Masters of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Specialization in Addictions, from the University of North Georgia. He has aided clients and families with addiction, recovery, and complex family dynamics.
Ryan works with people who struggle in their relationship with substances, alcohol, or process addictions. He believes in collaborating with his clients to make a plan for changing addictive patterns and behaviors. Families of people struggling with addictive behaviors also need support. Ryan also partners with the family to collaborate on setting, enforcing, and maintaining appropriate boundaries. Caretakers of people struggling with addiction need support just as much as the person struggling with the addiction.
Ryan works with childhood trauma survivors at any age for Emotional, Relational, Verbal, Physical, Sexual, or Religious Abuse. Many of his clients have stated in sessions that they have “never told anyone this before…” and that “talking with Ryan helped give me clarity on my past experiences and helped me make changes in my life to live in a healthier way.”
Ryan recognizes the experiences of those in the LGBTQ+ community, People of Color, and those struggling with their identification with various religions. He believes your experiences should be affirmed and you deserve a space where you can discuss your identity comfortably and safely. Ryan is a multiculturally competent counselor.
Ryan Austin is under the Supervision of Chelsey Beauchamp, LPC.
