Elvia Avitia

(MS, LPC, CCATP)

About Me

Hi there! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas. I have 7 years of experience working with a variety of issues. Often times, we feel that nothing can ever get to a place of serenity and it becomes difficult to focus on finding ourselves. I want you to know that I am here to walk with you through this journey and help you regain your life back. I work with individuals experiencing a variety of issues such as but not limited to; depression, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (pregnancy and postpartum), anxiety, trauma, grief, adjustment and low self-esteem. I would like to describe my modality approach as broad-based to better serve my client's needs.

I have a special interest in women experiencing Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs). I have been trained through Postpartum Support International in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders and strive to follow their model; You Are Not Alone, You Are Not to Blame, With Help You Will Be Well.

I understand that finding a counselor you can connect with may be difficult. To better accommodate my client's busy schedule, my availability is mainly in the evenings and weekends and I check my messages twice a day during the weekdays.

I look forward to working with you and remember, you are not alone!

Elvia has changed my life with her honest and constructive feedback. She creates an environment that feels incredibly safe yet provides tools to help navigate a very difficult time.

I have already learned so much from Elvia. She has helped me understand things about myself that no one else has. She is really good at picking up on little pieces of a story and zeroing in on the things that are important. I highly recommend her.

Elvia does a great job of making you feel comfortable and understood. I wasn't sure what to expect from therapy, but after my interactions with her I wish I would have done it sooner. You can really tell she cares, and that makes a difference.
