Cissy Castillo, LMFT, LCDC-I

Cissy’s specialities include relationship issues, family conflict, men’s issues, adults of emotionally immature parents, transitions, complex PTSD, anxiety, parent coaching, and substance use.

Hi there and welcome!

Are you conflicted, unhappy, in crisis, in transition, struggling with mental health symptoms, or just feeling that something is off? Are you struggling with consistent conflict or miscommunication in your relationships and ready to do something different?

Change isn’t easy and sometimes even scary. I offer non- judgmental support around the challenges and stressors you’re dealing with. I have experience working with individuals, couples and families in developing healthier emotional connections and more effective communication. We’ll work together to help you recognize family of origin beliefs or behavioral patterns that might be contributing to challenges in your life. I’m passionate about working alongside you as you grow and improve your quality of life. If you’re looking for a direct but compassionate therapist who has experience helping clients navigate personal and relational issues, I look forward to hearing from you!

I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor, and a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator, serving clients in Austin, Texas and surrounding areas.

In my spare time I enjoy traveling, reading a good book, fostering dogs, going on nature hikes, sneaking in a good nap and spending time with my friends and family.
