Hi all! My name is Anastasia Stock. I am a second year Master of Social Work student at the University of Texas at Arlington. I am based in Austin, Texas and am working on my degree remotely. In my undergraduate years I studied Psychology which gave me a framework and desire to further my education in mental health. My end goal is to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker so that I can work with people one-on-one to improve their mental health and achieve their goals. I have had a passion for helping people from a young age and that desire has grown stronger during my studies. In my free time, I enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking and snowboarding or reading novels cuddled up on my couch. 

 

I have prior experience working with unhoused children providing supportive services and counseling. I have also had the opportunity to work with children who deal with selective mutism. I have loved encouraging and supporting my clients and look forward to continuing to do so throughout my career.

 

As a counseling intern, I aim to provide clients with safety, security, and empathy as we work together toward their goals. I am able to work with both adolescent and adult clients. You can reach out to me via phone or text at 512-686-6443. From there, we can schedule a free consultation call to see if I would be a good fit for you in addressing your goals through counseling.

 

I am based in Austin and available to meet with clients virtually throughout the week or in person on Saturday mornings.

Anastasia currently has availability to offer counseling services at $55/session with some lower sliding scale options available.

Hello! My name is Efraim Fernandez. I completed my Undergraduate studies in Psychology from the University of Texas at San Antonio, go Roadrunners! Then I spent my first ten years out of college bouncing between Chicago and Texas as a Social Worker. I moved to Austin to become a bilingual teacher. This year I am completing my 15th year in the classroom. The past 25 years working directly with children and families as a professional Social Worker and Bilingual Teacher has both humbled and enriched my life in so many ways. Now, I look forward to taking that experience and my extended education while completing my Dual Degree Counseling program, to serve the good people here in Central Texas. I am more than excited to start the next chapter of my life as a Counselor. During my down time, I enjoy reading, prayer and meditation. I also love soccer, chess and taking the boat out and going fishing with my grandbabies. I am very grateful for this opportunity with Austin Counseling & Nutrition and I look forward to working with clients!

Efraim currently has availability to offer counseling services at $55/session with some lower sliding scale options available.
