Hello, I'm Kaleigh Amaya

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 family 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.

I am also a certified PREPARE/Enrich premarital counselor and can help you and your partner navigate the important conversations needed to set your new marriage up for success. Learn more about the premarital program here.

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.
