About Ryan

 

 

Ryan McGinnis, LCSW, RYT is a central Austin-based psychotherapist and yoga therapist in private practice. She currently sees adults facing issues including (but not limited to):

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Young Adult challenges
  • Spirituality 
  • Shame
  • Chronic Pain or Illness
  • Relationship struggles
  • Pregnancy, Prenatal and Postnatal Depression/Anxiety
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Self Esteem
  • Grief
  • Trauma & PTSD

She works well with and welcomes clients of all ages, race, gender identities, and sexual orientations. 

Ryan received her Masters in Clinical Social Work from Fordham University in New York City. During her time in New York she gained experience working with adults, children and adolescents in a variety of settings, including a special year-long training in Child-Parent Psychotherapy–an intervention for children from birth through age 5 who have experienced at least one traumatic event and, as a result, are experiencing behavior, attachment, and/or mental health problems, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. 

Eventually Ryan decided to leave the city and  journey back down to her home state where she then taught yoga at various studios around Austin, worked at the Austin Resource Center for the Homeless, and was an Emotional Support Counselor at the LIVESTRONG Foundation. Her variety of experience helped prepare her to enter into private practice as an associate with Louis Laves-Webb & Associates, where she practiced for 3.5 years before establishing her own solo practice.

Ryan continues to expand her scope of practice by staying current on effective psychotherapy and yoga therapy techniques and modalities through workshops, trainings, continued education, and professional groups. She proudly studied under Candyce Ossefort-Russell at The DEEP Center for Counseling and Therapist Training, where she trained in the DEEP (Dynamic Enriched Experiential Psychotherapy) method, and currently attends ongoing consultation and study groups there. She also attends regular trainings in other therapeutic methods such as IFS (Internal Family Systems), Hypnosis, Meditation, various Yoga and Yoga Therapy models, and she will be attending a Brainspotting training this Fall, to further her skills in acute and/or complex trauma work. She believes that staying open and curious with a beginner's mind is what keeps her passion for this work alive, and helps her to grow deeper into her own wisdom.

Please continue to browse this website for more information regarding her offerings, and reach out if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment. 

Namaste!

I was hoping to find a counselor that would tell me what to do. This was not what I found with Ryan. Instead of telling me what to do, she helps me dig within to be confident making my own decisions. Since working together I have started challenging my fear that until now have seemed overwhelming and unsurmountable. Working through divorce, fears of flying, and managing the stress of owning my own business, I am so grateful for Ryan’s counseling guidance and support. -E
