“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

–Ralph Waldo Emerson


Welcome to Slavis Therapy Works, LLC, the Independent Psychotherapy Practice of

Robert Slavis, LCSW.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has been in individual private practice as a psychotherapist for over 14 years. As a whole, I bring 20+ years of clinical experience providing counseling and psychosocial supports to children, adolescents, and adults.  This experience includes counseling, school and medical social work, and crisis intervention.

Slavis Therapy Works is named in honor of my grandfather who went into business as owner and operator of a machinist’s shop (Slavis Cutter Works).

My mission is to provide a multidisciplinary therapeutic support system for the Austin area’s Children & Adolescents, Parents, & Adults. I work to identify a person’s strengths both within their systems of support and without, and work to bolster their coping mechanisms so that they feel more confident regulating themselves when they become emotionally triggered.  It is my intention to provide an upfront and comprehensive assessment in order to create a realistic plan to help you feel more empowered and supported. I feel it is important to create and maintain a trusting relationship in order to cultivate one’s personal growth, mindful based coping strategies, and the ability to adapt to the transitions of everyday life.

Specific issues I have experience dealing with include, but are not limited to:

-Depression & Anxiety
-Bipolar Disorder
-Grief & Loss
-Conflict Resolution
-Behavioral Planning
-Crisis Intervention
-Academic Advisement
