Austin is currently in his advanced year at the University of Maryland Baltimore’s School of Social Work. At UMB, his specialization is in Mental and Behavioral Health, with a focus on substance use disorders. As part of SUDIF (Substance Use Disorders Interventions Fellowship), Austin is trained to identify and help treat those who struggle with substance use, misuse or abuse.
Prior to joining HFG, Austin worked in a clinical outpatient facility for clients with moderate to severe substance use disorders. There, his focus was primarily on working with adolescents and adults receiving intensive outpatient (IOP) and outpatient (OP) treatment.
Austin is dedicated to working with clients from all walks of life, and believes that fostering a sense of partnership is key to the therapeutic journey. Austin works with clients with various presenting concerns such as anxiety, depression, substance use disorders, comorbidity, and adjusting to big changes in life. His clinical approach is one of warmth and collaboration, and focuses on doing every step, side-by-side, with his clients.
In his free time, Austin enjoys lifting weights, cooking, painting, drawing and spending time with close friends.
