Providing Comprehensive Counseling Services–Individual, Group, and Medical Crisis Counseling
Linda Brase is a Licensed Professional Counselor, licensed by the Texas State Board of Examiners of
Professional Counselors. Linda has experience working with adult individuals and groups, as well as with adolescents.
She received her M.A. in Counseling from St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas with an emphasis in Medical Crisis Counseling. Ms. Brase completed additional training and/or internships with Capital Area Mental Health Center (training in long-term therapy), Wonders and Worries (specializing in helping children and families cope with chronic or life-threatening illness), St. David’s Hospital (providing support to women undergoing breast biopsies), the Breast Cancer Resource Center (assisting patients/couples/families in which a woman has been newly diagnosed with breast cancer), and Hospice Austin (regarding bereavement and end-of-life issues).
Ms. Brase’s personal experience with a life-threatening illness greatly influences her approach to therapy and

or a chronic illness has become one of my passions,” says Ms. Brase.
