Executive Director, Non-voting Board Member

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Bachelors in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin in Stevens Point and a Masters in Counseling Psychology from the University of West Alabama in Livingston. I have lived in Austin since November of 2005 and will likely never leave the wonderful state of Texas! My passion and life’s work has always been in advocating for and supporting those in need of mental health services. I will continue to lend my voice and strength to that cause here at CAC. I am moved and inspired by the amazing team I have the honor to work along side while doing so. I hope to see you (YES YOU) around Austin at the many fantastic fundraisers CAC will be having to ensure that every single individual, couple, and family that needs services with us is able to receive them!

When I’m not at CAC I can be found in North Austin with my extraordinary twin daughters doing all kinds of fun and creative things! In my free time I enjoy running, reading, movies and all things chocolate! I live my life as an adventure and find a reason to share a laugh and a smile every day!

Jennifer Williams Buffalo, LPC-S, LMFT, NCC

Clinical Director

jennifer@cacaustin.org

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.  As a graduate of the St. Edward’s Masters in Counseling Program, I completed my practicum hours and the majority of my post-graduate hours at CAC.  In this time I came to understand the mission of the agency and learned the importance of positive supervision as an effective training method.  As the Director of Supervision and Training, I am excited to bring to CAC my specific clinical  knowledge around cultural diversity, trauma, couples and family psychology, and  conflict resolution.

I have worked both with non-profit agencies and in the private practice sector.  I have learned to use patience, neutrality and a sense of humor in my work with clients and supervisees.  I recognize the energy and effort put forth by the incredible volunteer therapists at CAC and offer respect, support, and guidance to them on this important journey.

Dena Roberts, Ph.D., LPC-S

Clinical Partner

dena@cacaustin.org

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor and hold a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Somatic Psychology. I have been in private practice over twenty years working with adults and couples.  I am also an Adjunct Faculty member at St. Edward’s University where I teach a graduate level class on trauma.

It is a delight to be on staff at CAC working with pre and post-graduate interns who are curious and courageous in their work. Providing direct supervision and several consultation groups reward me with more questions than I can answer, and that keeps me excited about the work we do.

Capital Area Counseling provides superior service to our community and maintains an excellent therapist training program. I’m honored to be a part of the clinical staff and proud of the mission of CAC.

At the foot of our beds sit two little gremlins: fear and apathy. Whereas fear tells us to stay at home because life is too scary, the other says “why bother?” The key to therapy is to overcome these two gremlins so we can show up to our own lives. This is where I come in—helping clients make those first steps. As both Scheduling and Reception at CAC I help clients feel welcomed home and synced up with the right therapist for them. You may hear me on the phone, or meet me at the front desk and if you do then please say hello!

As a former CAC therapist, when not at the front desk, I see clients in my own private practice setting earning hours under my supervisors and Professional Counselor Intern License. I hail from the early 2000’s Houston music scene and find my free time occupied by science fiction, cooking, and writing and performing my work.

Reception/Scheduler

These days, you may see me at Reception or talk to me when we schedule your first appointment, but being a part of the CAC community has been important to me from the moment I stepped in the door a student-intern candidate. As I became a part of the therapy team, the essence of CAC nourished me in ways I didn’t imagine. My personal passion is working with couples and others wanting to have healthier relationships with themselves or others. I also enjoy guiding clients to discover conscious sexuality. Now, as I serve the community in a different way, I continue to feel honored to be here & adore greeting those of you who walk through our doors.

Outside of CAC, I’m usually studying for a Marriage & Family Therapy licensing exam, spending time with people who are essential to my life, at yoga class or hiking. I love to be outside in the cooler months! and enjoy traveling when I get a chance.
