Hello, I'm Kaleigh Simental

I am a pre-licensed graduate student completing a Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with Southern New Hampshire University. Under the supervision of Kristal DeSantis, LMFT, I am completing my clinical internship for the Spring semester 2022 with Austin STRONG: Relationship Building Center.

After growing up in East Texas and having my own experiences with counseling, I completed my Bachelors degree in Psychology with the
University of Texas at Austin and began my journey to becoming a counselor.


When I’m not working you can find me at the gym, on a hike on one of Austin’s many beautiful hiking trails, fiddling with my plants, or relaxing with my 2 dogs, Solo and Gracie.

*My first name is pronounced kay-lee*

Therapy with me

My goal in therapy is to help you live an authentic, fulfilled life. I take a person-centered approach to therapy and work with you to create a safe environment where you can freely express yourself and talk about your concerns.


With couples, I aim to strengthen communication and help you find more meaningful connection with your partner. I know how important your background and cultural identity is, so I will work to understand your
unique experience and how it impacts the way that you move through the world.

Contact Me

I am currently screening new clients to add to my caseload. I offer virtual and in-person meeting options. If you are interested in a phone consultation with me, please reach out.
