Tressie Seegers, MA, LPC Intern under the supervision of Wanda Montemayer, LPCS, ATCS, ATR-BC, RPT-S
Based in Austin, TX, Tressie works as a licensed counselor and art therapist. She is also the executive director of a local 501(c)(3) nonprofit program that provides art & music enrichment sessions for adults with developmental disabilities.
Options for therapy include traditional talk therapy, art therapy, or a combination of both. When working with individuals, Tressie leans towards a person-centered approach and meets clients where they are. She provides a safe space to unpack mental baggage and process grief, loss, trauma and life changes while working towards increasing mindfulness and coping skills to live more effectively.
Art therapy is used as a creative outlet combined with clinical mental health treatment to express one's inner world while developing skills to build a happier life and engage with others and ourselves in a healthier way.
Currently accepting new clients ages 19 and up, online only through telehealth.

Tressie provides art therapy groups online that focus on developing coping skills, increasing resiliency, improving interpersonal relationships and increasing connection with others while engaging in art interventions in a group environment. No artistic skills needed for art therapy.
