Carolyn Poole, LPC-S, LCDC

Co-Founder, Co-Director

For over 29 years I've been helping people in Austin experience freedom from emotional problems caused by trauma, addictions, anxiety, depression, difficult relationships and unresolved grief.

In private practice since 1994, as well as an approved supervisor by the Texas State Board of Professional Counselors, I am proud to be working with our exceptional team of therapists.

The Firefly Therapy Austin staff is hand-picked from the best of Austins counseling and social work graduates, and each has specialized experience, skills, and techniques. 

The next step is to read through these bios to see who is a good fit for you, who you resonate with, or who has training or specialties that appeal to you.

Stephanie Trueblood, LPC

Co-Founder, Co-Director

I have been a counselor since 2012, and have enjoyed helping people of all walks of life. I am excited to expand beyond my own private practice to mentor and help develop other therapists while serving a wider population in our beautiful town of Austin, TX.


I am experienced in treating anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship, and attachment issues using Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT),  and Gottman Couples Counseling, and I

am passionate about sharing these skills and techniques with our talented therapists to help their clients.
