Carisa Givens

(MEd, LPC)

About Me

My name is Carisa Bustillos Givens, and I have been counseling clients from a wide range of backgrounds for the past 12 years. I am a Professional Counselor licensed in Texas, focused on providing assistance with a wide range of concerns, including crisis, grief, loss and career counseling services and specializing in work and career-related stress, family challenges, blended families, women's and parents' issues, and mediation services. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating every individual with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and solution-focused counseling, and I will tailor our communication and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

You are courageous for seeking and working towards a more fulfilling and happier life. Sometimes taking the first steps towards a change can cause anxiety or nervousness. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!
