Ann Zbylot, LPC-S

In private practice since 2000, Ann has served a wide range of people. She currently works with adults and couples. Ann is experienced with working with anxiety and panic issues, residual trauma reaction, divorce, depression, mid-life crisis, grief/loss, life/work transitions and relationship challenges. Another service she provides for individuals and groups is expressive arts and dance therapy, and she specializes in adapting these sessions for those with disabilities.

Licensed by the State of Texas as a Professional Counselor and LPC supervisor. She received her B.A. in Psychology from the University of Texas and Masters Degree in Counseling from Texas State University. Ann is trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). This is a therapeutic modality that enables clients to
process memories and to heal from the emotional distress that often follows traumatic experiences. She is a Dance/Movement Therapist, R-DMT, registered by the American Dance Therapy Association, who is skilled in creative psychotherapy approaches utilizing art, movement, and writing.

Ann co-founded along with Kalila Homann, BC-DMT, the Accessible Arts Schools Outreach Program, a non-profit program that served Austin Independent School District Special Education students and provided expressive arts residencies and trainings to their teachers. For over 12 years Accessible Arts brought music, dance and art therapy groups
to students with development disabilities and behavioral challenges. This program was sustained through the support of VSA Arts of Texas and the City of Austin.

 

Currently Ann offers individual supervision for LPC interns who are obtaining the clinical hours needed to complete their license. She leads workshops, professional trainings, and offers LPC continuing education classes. These workshops utilize expressive arts modalities to enhance self-care for clients and professionals. Ann is a member of the American Dance Therapy Association and local member of Austin in
Connection.
