Austin Holifield MMFT, LMFTA lives in Tyler, Texas with his strong wife, wise son, and kick ass daughter. His passion for therapy was born out of a deep gratitude for the therapists that supported him through the darkest times of his life. 

Permission to Exhale was launched at the end of 2020 in response to the national mental health crises taking place. Our mission is to bring harmony to all levels of human experience...internally, relationally, communally, culturally, globally. Permission to Exhale believes that the individual and society form a mutually perpetuating cycle of health, or sickness. This systemic philosophy undergirds all aspects of our practice and is summed up in our mission statement, "Strengthening the individual, to strengthen the family, to strengthen society."
