Here's a little bit about me and my clinical background.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Texas, license # 41437.
The Texas Board of Social Work Examiners is the regulatory body for all social workers in the state, and can answer any questions you may have regarding licensure.
I started my career as a therapist at The University of Texas Counseling and Mental Health Center in Austin, Texas. There, I gained extensive clinical experience in both individual and group therapy, working with a diverse population of college undergraduate and graduate students with a wide spectrum of concerns. I started a private practice in 2005.
I work from a psychodynamic approach, but utilize an integrative framework of therapeutic interventions. Some of the specific modalities that inform this framework include: Object Relations Theory, Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB), Attachment Theory, Systems Theory, Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Self Psychology, Control Mastery Theory (CMT), Accelerated Experiential-Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), and Internal Family Systems Theory (IFS).
My style is not for everyone. My approach is empathic and direct. You'll never wonder what I'm thinking, but this isn't a great fit for all personality styles. Couples therapy can be directive and challenging, and if you're wanting to come in to have your spouse/partner "fixed," I am not the therapist for you. Couples therapy in particular involves intense work in understanding and undoing the dynamic in which both partners unconsciously participate.
I received my Master of Science in Social Work (MSSW) with a Clinical Social Work specialization from the University of Texas in Austin, Texas.
Are you afraid to pronounce my name?
Fear not. You're not alone. Jandri is short for Alejandra, which is Spanish, so the J sounds like an H.
It is pronounced Haundry. Yes, it sounds like laundry with an H.
