• Mario Uribe, MS
    LMFT-Associate

    Supervised By Tammy Fisher, MA, LPC-S, LMFT-S

    Whether working with individual clients, couples or families, I place a high value on respecting the individuality and uniqueness of those I serve.  I strive not to “impose” myself on clients, but instead “walk with” people on their own journeys toward wellness, resolution, or whatever they may seek.  I work with both couples and adult individuals.

    My passion in working with couples is informed by my advanced training and experience in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), which emphasizes emotional connection, and addresses the anger, frustration and pain of ruptured bonds between partners.  Often, couples find themselves experiencing a distancing from one another, whether resulting from infidelity, other factors, or for reasons unknown.  My approach helps couples to heal hearts—to renew and fortify loving connections that last.

    Much of my individual work with adult men and women extends to problems related to ADHD, mood and anxiety-related disturbances, relationship problems, life adjustments, and addictions/compulsions.  In working with individual adults, I place high value on building trust and security, and maintaining a strong, supportive alliance.  I respect the courage and dignity of those willing to pursue meaningful change, and believe that attunement with one’s own thoughts, feelings and behaviors paves the way for healing and growth.

    EDUCATION

    I attained my BA degree from St. Mary’s University, Texas, and my MS in Clinical Counseling (Marriage and Family Therapy) from Cal State University, Long Beach (CA), and am a certified Positive Discipline Educator.  My advanced training includes all levels of Emotionally Focused Therapy Core Skills, and I presently serve as Board of Directors Vice President on the Austin Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy.  In addition to my clinically-oriented education, my past professional experience extends to corporate consultant and management work in the area of Employee Relations.

    FUN FACTS

    I grew up the eldest of 6 siblings in Orange County, California, but have gratefully become a naturalized Texan.  I’m into creative writing—mostly short stories, and enjoy hiking and backpacking, literary fiction, Netflix, the Dallas Cowboys, Brian Eno, Talking Heads, and all kinds of seventies and eighties “old school” music.  My teenage son is a gifted pianist and composer, and among his many fans, none are greater than his mom and dad.
