Welcome! My name is Mia Sultanik (sole TAN ik). As an LMSW, I am pleased to provide counseling services, under the supervision of Brandi Winters, LCSW, from our office, Counseling Services, in Cedar Park, Texas.
Having spent my childhood in Houston, Texas, I first arrived in Austin, Texas over 30 years ago to attend The University of Texas, at Austin. I earned my BS in Child Development and Family Relationships from the Department of Natural Sciences. Shortly thereafter, I obtained my teaching certification and worked in Round Rock ISD for 10 years. I decided to followed my passion to support and counsel others and left my position, returning to The University of Texas, at Austin, in order to earn my LMSW from the School of Social Work. Upon completion of this master's degree, I worked in various aspects of counseling including with children and adults in acute care and in-patient hospitals in the Austin area and in court appointed guardianship investigations through Travis County.
From January 2007 through August 2017, I worked as a regular part-time counselor/therapist and PRN counselor as an individual and family therapist at an inpatient facility for children and adolescents while also working in Leander ISD as a classroom and gifted and talented teacher, serving typical and twice exceptional students as well. My unique and extensive experiences with children, adolescents, adults and families have led me to have a well-rounded and all-encompassing background in order to provide clients the best possible counseling services.
I enjoy staying up to date with current therapy and relevant therapeutic issues. When not working with clients, you can find me appreciating nature (when it's not sweltering outside!), playing and training my Golden Pyrenees, reading and spending time with my family. And, yes, I am the proud and parent of three children (two teens and one in college), one of whom has diagnoses of ASD and Retractible Epilepsy among many other things. I wouldn’t have him or my other two any other way!
