My name is Dr. Iektje van Bolhuis

Since 2012, I have been a Licensed Psychologist and Licensed Specialist in School Psychology in the State of Texas, serving clients in the Austin area, and all over Texas when I started practicing TelePsychology during the pandemic. Since 2023 I have been authorized to practice interjurisdictional TelePsychology in the PSYPACT states.

I earned my Ph.D. in Educational Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin, and specialized in School Psychology. Through my doctoral program I have received extensive training and supervised experience in psychological assessment, individual and family therapy, and consultation. I completed my Pre-Doctoral Internship and Postdoctoral Residency at the Austin Psychology and Assessment Center, where I worked with adults, children, teens, and families. During my Postdoctoral Residency I trained in couples therapy via the Gottman Institute.

Before I became a psychologist I worked in special education. I earned a Master’s Degree in education from the University of Amsterdam, and I have worked as a special education teacher, behavior specialist, and parent consultant. I have also supervised special education teachers-in-training for five years at the University of Texas at Austin.

 I practice exclusively TelePsychology because of the freedom and flexibility it gives to both myself and my clients. My clients enjoy not having to drive to my office, and the convenience and comfort of having therapy sessions in their own homes or a private environment of their own choosing. 


My expert clinical support team

I am grateful for the invaluable support I receive from my feline companions—they've been instrumental in my personal and professional journey. Just as these cats contribute to my well-being, I am committed to fostering a therapeutic environment that revolves around your unique needs and aspirations.

While I offer a diverse array of research-based therapy approaches, the cornerstone of our work together lies in a client-centered and outcome-informed approach. This philosophy places our relationship and collaboration at the heart of our therapeutic endeavor. In each session, I will engage in a meaningful dialogue with you to gauge our progress toward your goals and ensure that I am meeting your individual needs.
