Get Strong Again. Help For Depression, Anxiety, Relationships. New Perspective...

Counseling, Therapists, Counseling Uptown, Counseling Upper Kirby, Counseling Memorial. 

Sessions are relaxed, interactive, and solution-focused.  We work together to reduce stress and address concerns related to:

Anger, Alcohol and Drug Abuse, Anxiety, Depression, Divorce, Grief, Eating Disorders, Direction, Relationships, Self-Esteem, & Parenting.

You can get past the pain of hurtful life events and self-defeating behaviors.  We can help resolve concerns that may be blocking your goals and emotional freedom.  Reaching out for help is not what you feel like doing, but is how we are encouraged.  You are not alone...  

Anxiety is difficult to hide and can distract from effectiveness at work and relationships.  We can work together to reduce fear, perfectionism, and negative self-talk.  If anxiety has been prolonged and untreated, it may become a medical condition which is treatable and reverseable.

  Therapy is helpful in identifying recurring thoughts which may not be not based on truth about yourself or others.  Negative feelings follow these thoughts, and negative behaviors result. 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helps to reduce depression and anxiety.  

CBT can help improve other concerns related to sleep and appetite disturbance, substance abuse, anger, relationships, and low self-esteem.


You can feel better quickly as we generate options together for a more peaceful perspective.  We are here to listen, discern, & help you with concerns blocking your joy.  Sessions are safe & confidential.  We can help you accept what is beyond your control and move forward.

Adjusting perspective and finding new options can give new energy for daily life.

Therapy brings Emotional Freedom.

The most important key in improving self-esteem is shown to be emotional honesty.  Genuineness is a process of becoming on the outside who you really are on the inside.  Being congruent improves your overall sense of well-being and contributes to better relationships and effectiveness.  

If you need help with eating disorders, hurtful life events, unresolved conflict, divorce recovery, stress, grief, stage of life transition, parenting, or relationships, we can help you understand what has happened in order to heal and move forward.  Our most difficult obstacle is isolation which causes feelings of being invisible.  Our relationship can bring relief to this loneliness because counseling is relationship.  We heal not thru information alone, but thru relationship.
