About Me

Hi, my name is Keira Aukamp. I recently moved to Austin, TX from New Jersey where I have lived my entire life. I am so excited to be joining the Deep Eddy Team! In 2017, I graduated with my masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Rider University. During my time in graduate school and immediately following, I have worked mainly with adults suffering with chronic mental illness such as bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, and PTSD. I have been working in the mental health field since receiving my undergraduate degree in psychology in 2014. I actually met my husband (working!) in a psychiatric hospital and he works as a nurse in the psychiatric field.

When I’m not working, I’m usually traveling, playing volleyball, doing yoga, rewatching The Office or hiking with my dog, Oliver.

My Approach to Therapy

I utilize an integrative approach, formed on the foundation of person-centered therapy and incorporating solution-focused techniques from acceptance and commitment therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. I come from the perspective that you are an expert on your life, and I am on a journey with you to learn about your experience and help you achieve the goals you set, maybe figure out some hidden trauma and triggers along the way. 

Therapy with me will include: goal setting, homework assignments, periods of silence, and physical expression of emotion through movement, dance, laughing, and maybe crying.
