Ty David Lerman
We believe the mark of good therapy is a balanced approach of compassion and safety with a strong dose of confrontation which will lead to integration and accomplishment of your goals. We recognize that psychotherapy is expensive and time consuming. Our intention is to create a therapeutic environment that will aid you in opening up, focusing on the primary issues and getting them resolved in a timely manner.
We believe that people are “whole”, a synergy of history, experience, and dreams for the future. Who we are and how we live is a reflection of our physical and emotional health, our relationships and spiritual well being. Whether we are working with individuals, couples, families, or groups, we look for strengths and approach all with the belief that people can and do make positive changes.
Southwest Psychotherapy Associates, P.A. was started in 1986 by Micki Grimland, LCSW, ACSW in Houston, Texas. As the owner she has established a group practice of seasoned and talented practitioners specializing in various modalities, and expanding services to Austin.
In March of 2022, the time came for Micki to take a step back from running the day-to-day of SWPA, and passed the reins to someone who shares the same passion of integrity and professionalism that SWPA has stood for all these years. Ty David Lerman has been an integral part of SWPA since 2016 and is humbled to hold the legacy Micki has created and is excited to carry this into the future.
