I am here to help you overcome whatever storms and its challenges that have left you thinking or feeling that you just can't overcome.

Your life can improve as well as enhance and that is what I am here to help you with. I have over 20 years of Pastoral Christian Counseling (ministering to various lifespans in spiritual, emotional and family needs), Educational Setting Guidance as a Professional School Counselor (specializing in at-risk and juvenile court mandated cases), and experience in the Military Family Life Counseling and Mental Health Clinic Therapy as a Licensed Professional Counselor in West Texas. I have been blessed to learn and implement various forms of therapy from the most traditional modalities such as C.B.T./REBT/Mindful Training/Solution Focus Therapies to E.M.D.R. for trauma. As an Ordained Minister, my training has been one that has been Theological in doctrine, and Theological in the practice of spiritual warfare and a spirit filled approach. It's time for you to take hold of the opportunity that is before you to reach out and begin this journey of healing that awaits you.

Written by X.A. on Oct 14, 2020 after counseling with Samuel for 1 month

Rev Salazar has been a total blessing to my life and to the state of my mental health. He is well versed in many methods and practices, yet relies on the Spirit to guide him into the right practice at the right time. He led me through breathing exercises that helped to calm my intense anxiety when processing childhood trauma. He combined the breath exercises/clinical approach with Scripture to help the truth of God sink in during that moment. He's walked with me in a number of issues, and expresses his care every single time. Rev Salazar was a great match for me in this season of therapy for me, and I am so thankful.
