About Me

Hello, welcome to my page my name is Felix, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Texas (#77330), and a National Certified Counselor. Currently a doctoral candidate in Counselor Education from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, TX. I received my BA in Psychology in 2011 and my master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2015. I consider myself a multicultural counselor who has an eclectic approach when helping clients overcome barriers to their overall wellness. While I consider myself eclectic in my counseling approach, I see the clients I work with from a humanistic philosophy. Meaning I believe each person is the expert of their lives and I am here to help guide you overcome barriers that prevent you from living a life full of vitality and to flourish. Some modalities that I use depending on the client include Cognitive Behavior Therapy, D.B.T. Skills Training, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, Trauma-Informed Care, Motivational Interviewing, Expressive Creative Arts, Gestalt, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, and Narrative therapy. The approach I use depends on the specific needs of my clients and is always collaborative so that my clients always have a say on how best to help them. I offer individual and couples counseling in order to treat various mental health/relationship concerns. I have experience helping individuals overcome: General Anxiety, Social Anxiety, Major Depression, Adjustment, Stress, Anger Issues, Substance abuse addictions, Process addictions, Domestic Violence, LGBTQ concerns, Career Exploration, Coping with chronic illness, Bullying, Self-esteem, Specific phobias, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Trauma, and Increasing overall wellness. I also have experience working with couples to overcome relationship concerns including pre-marital counseling, divorce, adjustment, and communication concerns. With my experience, I am confident I can help you start living life to your fullest potential!

Written by C.E. on Jul 14, 2020 after counseling with Felix for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, and career difficulties

I really like Felix! He is understand and calm and passionate at what he does. I went through five therapists before I found someone I enjoy talking to and someone who doesn’t judge. I recommended all my friends to him. He is pretty awesome and professional. I hope his career takes him somewhere he wants to be since he deserves it! He is attentive and friendly as well. Honestly couldn’t ask for a better therapist.

Felix is a wonderful listener and is very compassionate. He has taught me a lot and I'm grateful for the time I've spent with him. He's helped me grow and recover from past traumas that I wasn't sure would ever get better. I still have more to learn and do, but I feel more confident and positive now that I've been working with him.
