Welcome, thank you for reaching out during a difficult time.
I graduated with my MA from the University of Vermont, I then moved to Houston, Texas to attend the University of Houston-Clear Lake for me graduate degree in psychology specializing in Marriage and Family therapy. I did my residency with Baylor University at the Star of Hope, a women and family homeless shelter. Some of these individuals were battling mental disorders, addiction, abuse, depression, family dysfunction but they all wanted to resolve their issues to work on a better future for themselves and their family. From there I transitioned to private practice. I have been practicing for over 13 yrs and have worked with individuals and couples who are battling (but not limited to) depression, anxiety, infidelity, addiction, abuse, life transitions, grief, divorce. My definition of a family is not limited to your immediate family, I believe that it includes everyone that has had any type of influence and impact on your life.
I would like to share with you my approach to therapy. I consider this to be your journey and I have the privilege to come along. It is my job to help you look behind every tree and under every rock so that you are able to make the most informed decisions along the way that will lead you to the destination you have chosen. I feel it is important for you to believe in the goals that we are working on, this does not mean that the goals can’t be altered or changed along the way. There are times when we get suffocated by this thing that we call life, when we find ourselves in this position we need to pull back the layers and get back to basics. I feel it is important for you to believe in the goals that we are working on, this does not mean that the goals can’t be altered or changed along the way. I consider the world to be your classroom and if you want change to happen you have to make change happen. With that being said, I give homework therefore our sessions will continue to help you in your daily routine. We can talk everyday but if I do not give you the chance to try the techniques we work on in your everyday life then nothing will change.

Shes been so helpful!
Celine is a great listener and gives great advice. She’s empathetic and reasonable, and she helped me get through a lot I was struggling with!
I feel like Celine really listens to my concerns and needs. I feel like she is really looking out for me and by best interests. I don’t feel judged by her in any way. I feel completely comfortable discussing any topic with her. She is straight and to the point when needed. She allows me to see things from multiple viewpoints and let’s me ultimately decide what feels true and right for me.
AMAZING counselor. She is extremely attentive, patient, insightful and kind.
celine is AMAZING...i’m going through such a hard time and having her in my life is just great
she’s very supportive , understanding and loving
without her i would be lost ..she’s helping me to be more focused and to make better choices
i just love her
I’ve been seeing Celine for a couple of weeks now and, unlike other “life-coaches”, I really enjoy speaking with her. Additionally, she remembers (or at least takes notes) about what you discussed last time. She really cares and she is a professional. You would be her friend under normal circumstances. But, I don’t have any friends that are as helpful and caring as she is. I’m really enjoying my time with her. I will continue to see her.
She's a very good counselor and she very respectful and does everything she can to help you with your needs and goals.
I love her no nonsense approach to things. She helps me see things a for what they are while respecting me and my thoughts and feelings.
Celine is everything a therapist should be. She is caring, professional, and knowledgeable. I would not be where I am today without her, I have never been healthier and more optimistic about my life. I connected with her after not having a good connection with my first therapist match, almost a year later I am still working with her. She is supportive but also straightforward when required, I have nothing but praise and gratitude for this amazing therapist!!
Love Celine and getting to talk with her. She’s good at getting someone to open up and talk.
Celine is incredibly attentive and always knows just what to say. She asks the right questions that make me come to realizations on my own. She also is always willing to work around my crazy schedule. Celine is fantastic and I love having her as my therapist.
Celine is a great and caring counselor. She has gone above and beyond since day 1. She’s open minded and has really helped me to get to the rout of some of my issues. I couldn’t say enough good things about her and her approach towards counseling. Thank you Celine for everything you’ve done for me and my family.
Celine is amazing. I've been supported through the death of a family member, anxiety, depression, and romantic heartbreak all in the same year.
She is AMAZING! I love her. She has been helping me for the past 9 months and she has helped me make a lot of progress.
Celine is very pragmatic and easy to talk to. I would definitely recommend her. She sets you up for success in walking you through your thoughts, however confusing they may be. Thanks Celine!
Amazing counselor! Thoughtful, has great insight, takes the time to listen and offer advice. I look forward to my sessions with her every week!
Celine is great and understands my complex thoughts which is so crucial to this process. She helps point out important things that she observes and helps me see new ways of viewing situations. She is great at reading my expressions and noticing when they change. The feedback really helps me be more aware of my feelings.
Celine is a very helpful and supporting person. She is good at helping keep things on track if conversation is not your strong suit. Creating a safe environment where you can speak as needed seems to be her specialty. You never feel judged, yet she is not afraid to give you real help by identifying your problems and giving honest feedback without an attitude of aggression. She is also proactive in offering advice and ways to work through your problems rather than just giving you a friendly face to vent to. She’s been very helpful with me so far and I’m sure she can be a great help to others as well.
She’s really understanding and patient, gives me quick and constant help and supports all the time. I really appreciate her. She’s a really great therapist.
Celine is a very lovely person. She is not just doing her job, she really cares, easy to talk to & let you feel that she is more like a friend. She tackled every problem. In a very short period, I really felt the difference.
She is amazing listens to me makes time for me I have never had anyone care about me and listen to me like she does she is so sweet. And I would recommend her to everyone! She knows what she is doing!
Celine is such a supportive counselor. She takes the time to get to learn what goals I have and how to get me to where I want to go. She responds in a timely manner which helps with my anxiety issues. I feel myself progressing and getting to a better, happier place.
Celine has been a tremendous help.
Celine is a lovely therapist, very understanding! I’ve only been with her a short while but she is so attentive and flexible to my needs!
She is a very considerate to my feelings and needs despite of the culture differences. She recently said ”I will be there for you to support you throughout your rough times“ it meant a lot to me and I felt that she is as one of my dear friends.
I've been working with Celine for about two weeks now, since I first started using BetterHelp's service. She has consistently provided very prompt feedback, and continues to provide me with ideas and materials that I can work through on my own schedule. Appreciate the support.
