About Me

I am a mental health counselor licensed in the state of Texas. Professionally, I have a little over 3 years of experience. I have been a fitness/sports coach for over 20 years, working with kids and adolescents. I am a veteran with 10 years of service. I also do have 1 year of Spiritual/Faith based counseling at my local church. Currently, I work as a mental health counselor at a Behavioral Hospital. Our main focus is to attend to the crisis at hand, utilizing brief and swift psychotherapy. Once patients are stable, I provide psychotherapy or psychoeducation in accord to their main problems or obstacles.
I have worked with patients and clients with a wide range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, spiritual conflict, and interrelationship conflict.
I am a Christian and follow Christian principles, therefore, I believe in treating all individuals with outmost respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I understand that a higher power is in the center of our being and purpose. My counseling style is assertive and direct, but empathic and compassionate, all at once. My approach is eclectic, hence, it is a combination of cognitive-behavioral, spiritual, psychodynamic and positive psychology. I am able and willing to adapt to any form of counseling and treatment as required by the patient or client, in order to meet your specific needs and unique obstacle, regardless, of the client’s beliefs, religion, gender identity, or social status.
Lastly, I am currently finishing my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology. Hence, I am constantly learning new ways of improving my skills, knowledge, and attaining more tools to better serve my patients and clients.
I personally understand the courage and confidence that it is needed to accept that one needs help and seek that help in order to better one’s life and improve quality of life, for you and those around you.

I am excited and look forward to providing guidance and effective therapy.

Miguel understands me in a manner that no other previous therapist was able to. He is very attentive and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him.
