I would like to state that my mission and or calling is to assist individuals in areas in their lives where they are struggling. This can be from past traumas, present on going relationships, or future events. I do what I do simply because it’s my passion, not my job.
I focus my training on adults, couples, and teens. I have specialized training in E.M.D.R., certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and have a heart for treating traumatized individuals. I have experience in working with addicts (Substance Abuse) and mental health disorders (Bi-Polar, Anxiety, Schizoaffective Disorder, Schizophrenia, Depression). I have also had experience in career counseling. I am open and fully culturally competent to work with biblically based individuals as well.
I have worked in several psychiatric hospital settings for 3 years which included working with a treatment team. This included a nursing staff and doctor to assist providing the client both psychological (therapy) treatment as well as the pharmacology aspect. I have been in private practice for almost 3 years and have worked with a wide spectrum of clients including children. I prefer to work with 12 yrs. and older only due to my experience with teens and adults.
I love sports and the outdoors. Although I haven’t done much of what I would like to do, such as skydiving or hunting, I still have that craving and curiosity for it. I am a Houstonian. However, I received my Masters while attending Dallas Baptist University. I have a passion for ministry and serving people.

LPC #67382 (Expires: 2022-05-31)
Joseph takes a caring, individualized approach for what I need to cover for my mental health, whether it's talking about past traumas or an ongoing crisis. He is attentive and recalls details that I wouldn't have expected him to, which really helps me know that there's a genuine rapport. I am a military and police veteran with divorce and relationship issues, post traumatic stress, and major depression. Sometimes I feel like I just want to update Joseph on what's going on in life when I don't really have a general direction in the conversation that I want to go in, and he shows interest even when I'm just venting. I would absolutely recommend him to a friend or coworker.
Joseph takes the time to actively listen, validate, encourage, and provide me with tools and resources to manage my anxiety and depression.
Joseph has been very helpful in giving me the tools I need to navigate my challenges outside of our counseling sessions. Very responsive and thankful for the Christian perspective in counseling!
I highly recommend Joseph Garza (L.P.C.). Joseph Garza is an exceptional listener, outstanding professional and excellent counselor.

Joseph is very attentive, respectful and doesn't make you feel like you're being judged. He definitely helps me see things from view points that help me to understand me.
