About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas with over 9 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, family conflict, career challenges, and lack of motivation.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral and solution focused. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Adan is very interactive with you in each session, has a different approach to situations that you can practice in your day to day life. He also gives you some sort of mental homework to make your self more confident and less negative. I am currently only two sessions in but I already started speaking to my self and others more positive. I am looking forward to learning more about my self with his help and feel more hopeful towards the future.

I really enjoy working with Adan! I have already seen a difference in myself, and how I approach situations now. He never gets frustrated with me, no matter how many times I go around in circles about the same topic. Recently I have nothing to really to talk about so Adan starts asking me questions to trigger my memory (I’m forgetful a lot). I really appreciate and respect his advice! He is the best therapist I have worked with on this site!

This is my first time participating in therapy. I had my doubts about it's effectiveness at first. However after completing a few sessions with my counselor I can confidently say it works! Not only have I seen an improvement in my behavior and thought processes but so has my partner. My counselor is attentive to my needs and responds in a manner that is both respectful and sincere. He is honestly a life saver!
