Mental health professionals who join the SIMS Provider Network play a vital role in supporting the mental well-being of the Central Texas music community. SIMS providers have the opportunity to work with clients whose lives in the music industry come with unique sets of challenges. SIMS partners with over 130 licensed mental health professionals in private practice in Central Texas.
“Working with the Austin music community has been an incredible experience, and a true gift to me as a provider. I believe helping musicians heal gives voice to their music, which in turn, heals the hearts of so many and keeps the soul of Austin’s community alive and thriving.”
– Mary Combs, SIMS Provider Network member since 1998
SIMS clinical staff work closely with our providers to manage the care of our clients. Providers are located all over Central Texas and are carefully selected by clinical staff to ensure that we offer a wide range of services, treatment modalities, and cultural competence.
Providers see clients in their own offices and schedule their own sessions. The SIMS Provider Network is made up of psychologists, psychiatrists,LPCs, LCSWs, LMFTs, and LCDCs.
