I am a licensed professional counselor and qualified mental health professional in Texas with several years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, conflicts, multicultural concerns, immigration issues, grief and anger management. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral therapy, client centered therapy and solution focused therapy. Every individual/family is unique and I will strive to guide you towards ascertaining a suitable plan to meet your unique needs.
It is my understanding that, seeking for help or guidance is not a weakness, it is a strength that is necessary and pivotal to the healing process. Whenever you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and guide you in finding a lasting solution.
I look forward to working with you!

John has been very supportive with my recovery. His help to guide me to know why I was feeling the way I was. The prayers and scripture reads were also a great help for my healing. Thank you John for your support and guidance. I don’t know where I would be without your help. I’m a changed person. Happier and knowing I can take on this world. Forever grateful. Thank you

I truly cant say enough good things about John. An understanding, kind, and thoughtful person who lent his wisdom and ear to me at a time i needed it the most. I grew as a human because of his insights and he allowed a safe space for me to be myself. That helped him understand me and truly gave him the opportunity to be his best self in order to help me. I can't thank him enough for his service and friendship. I would recommend John to anyone going through low points because of the value he reinstilled in me during mine.
