I am Andrea Ryan, a licensed professional counselor with a master's level education in the state of Texas. In addition to my professional degree, I have studied and become certified in Traumatic Stress Studies with The Trauma Center at JRI through Bessel Van der Kolk. I have worked both in a behavioral hospital with inpatient and outpatient clients, and as an independent counselor in private practice for years. If it is a part of the human experience in mental health, I have most likely addressed it.
I offer you an empathic, supportive, in-the-moment, and non-judgmental style of therapy to help with depression, anxiety, stress management, traumatic experiences, mood swings, women's concerns, interpersonal relationship issues, personal or professional growth, as well as grief and loss. I have vast experience in assisting with the development of the necessary coping skills, relaxation techniques, yoga/body integration, and self-regulation techniques to positively improve your relationships at home and work. I help you utilize your strengths and develop new skills to integrate the struggles you are experiencing. I bring scientifically supported techniques to bear on your individual situation to discover ways to work through any challenge you meet. I recognize that a person is not a collection of problems to be addressed, but rather a whole, complex, and beautiful individual expression of life. Therefore, I prefer to work collaboratively with your whole self. Feel free to express yourself in a safe, confidential session with me.
I look forward to walking this path with you. I see myself as a fellow traveler alongside you on your life journey. I believe that all experiences make us who we are; and that the point is the journey not the destination. As J. R. R. Tolkien noted, "Not all those who wander are lost." I am honored in your decision to allow me to assist you as you grow and develop through the challenges that prompted you to seek therapy.

Just 100% hands down the Best! ❤️
Andrea is the best. She always shares great insights to my problems and offers me “homework” to help me develop my thoughts through our the week
Andrea has helped me more than I thought possible...when I first started, I had no clue where to begin, but Andrea has listened and helped guide me through the healing process.
I thank God for Andrea. I started feeling better after our first session, and I know I will continue to get better with her. I would recommend her to anyone who needs help.
Andrea has been an incredible counselor for me. She understands my concerns and addresses them accordingly. She has helped teach me new ways of processing situations and has helped me learn to cope. I could not have asked for a better counselor.
At first, I thought therapy would be scary, and I would get judged or put down, but Andrea has helped me lose that fear and feel happy about getting help. I’m ready for this journey and talking to her makes me feel safe and comfortable. She is very sweet , understanding, and reassuring . I would recommend her 100%
Andrea knows how to tackle problems with a variety of techniques. It makes going to therapy so worth it. She's unorthodox in her healing methods but it works! She doesn't just evaluate the person she evaluates the soul and tries to help you.
Andrea is a great therapist and does a very good job! Highly recommend.
She is attentive and listens to my needs and what I would like to change.
