Lane Ingram is an improviser and licensed professional counselor who recently moved back to Austin after graduating from the IO and Second City training centers in Chicago. He also holds a masters in counseling from the University of North Texas.
Since returning to Austin Lane has opened a new business called Upside Wellness where he is doing exciting work combining the tenants and tools of improv with therapy services for adults, adolescents, couples, and families struggling with a wide variety of mental health issues.
We spoke at length with Lane about the ways in which his improv training informed his work as a mental health professional, and vice versa.
Also, we gave Lane a chance to tease a possible future podcast where he offers his diagnosis of a character from a popular TV show.
Things wrap up with a personal story from Lane's life about an embarrassing mistake he made while working in the 5th largest radio market in the country (Dallas).
