About Me

Hello you! I am Mark Holt (He/Him/His) and I am an LMFT licensed in Texas and Louisiana and a Certified Geek Therapist. I recently moved back to my hometown in Louisiana after staying in Austin, Tx for 4 years with my practice primarily focused on working with Geeks and Gamers with a myriad of different challenges in their lives. These can include: executive function, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, social anxiety, processing feelings, and finding motivation.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and newborn son, watching anime/reading manga, weight lifting, running, playing DND, and playing card games.  My first console was a Nintendo 64 and I love playing Pokémon, Street Fighter, and One Piece.  I wish I could list all of my fandoms that I have been a part of over the years, but I think that would take up most of this page. If you want to know more about it, just ask, because I will be asking about your fandoms during our time together 🙂

I believe that what you do for fun and where your passions lie can inform and bolster your own mental health, and I would like to incorporate your interests into our sessions. So, whatever you happen to be passionate about, bring it up!

I offer a non-judgmental place to explore these topics and help discover a more fulfilling life for you! During our time together, we will explore the different parts of you and give them each a space to speak, as well as aligning you with your innate values to guide you to a more satisfying life.

In my practice, I work from a collaborative, trauma focused perspective; meaning that I recognize and emphasize how one’s own experiences can shape their current well-being. Utilizing a Interpersonal Neurobiology lens, we will work together to learn how your inner system reacts to different life events and, together, create the value driven life you deserve. I blend the models of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Internal Family Systems to work with my clients. You are the professional of your own life; I have the mental health knowledge from my many years of experience practicing; Together we will work to co-create the self-image you want for your life!

If you know someone that might be a good fit for me, but are not open to coming to therapy themselves, I also offer aid to parents and loved ones. Being a Marriage and Family Therapist, I see people as being part of a family system, in which if one part of the system changes, other parts are affected. I find it most helpful to work with the parties that are most motivated for change. Thus, even if they, themselves, are not ready to come into therapy, I can still provide support for you concerning your child or loved one.

If you’re ready to have a player 2 that is on your side and will support you through what you want to change in your life, click below!
