TownLake Pro Bono Counseling Program
The YMCA Pro-Bono Counseling Program is dedicated to helping individuals and couples find their way through mental health, family, and social issues. Our services began in September of 2009 and several hundred individuals, couples and parents have taken advantage of our counseling program. We offer two free sessions per Y member and then a sliding scale. Our office is located upstairs at the Town Lake YMCA at the back of the Pilates room. Parents are encouraged to use the child care services offered by the Y if needed during their appointment time. Please click the counselor names below to book an appointment.
*Pro-Bono Counseling sessions are for YMCA of Austin members only.

Meet our Counselors:
Meet Elizabeth O'Brien, LPC-S
My practice is based on the person-centered model of the late psychotherapist Carl Rogers, who espoused the Humanstic philsophy of empathy, congruence, and unconditional positive regard for the client. I meet clients where they are and join them in their self-exploration and in embracing personal responsibility. I also do some life-coaching for appropriate clients.

Meet Marvi Haynes, LMFT-A
Individual and Couples Counseling
My therapeutic approach is to work with individuals to explore the meaning of life-altering events, while leading them toward resilience and healing. I work to help my clients move between their interior and exterior worlds to find congruence, resonance, and balance. My role is to provide safety, empathetic listening and support while acting as a guide to remove barriers and strengthen inner resources.
