Kalee Gower, LMSW

Given the right support, people are innately equipped to grow and overcome.


I come to the profession of mental health by way of my own internal adventure, professional experiences, and formal study.

Just as a trail guide might increase your awareness to new types of flora and fauna, I work with individuals and couples to bring new awareness and interest to their internal and relational ecosystems. Given the right support and nurturance, people are innately equipped to grow and develop.

I bring an engaged and curious stance to therapy along with integrated training in experiential therapies (PACT, mindfulness, psychodynamic, IFS) and developmental neurobiology. Attachment and systems theories have a large influence in my clinical approach.

My style is transparent, playful, and challenging yet compassionate. I both help people to problem-solve or learn skills for quick relief, as well as coach clients through a deeper exploratory process that yields real and lasting change.

I belong to a group practice serving central, south, and north Austin areas. More information about my work with Louis Laves-Webb, LCSW, LPC-S and Associates can be found here.
