Dr. Kay Caballero

(PsyD, LMFT)

About Me

Welcome!

I am a doctor of psychology and an individual, family and relationship therapist (LMFT) licensed in Texas with over 8 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges and life changes. My specialty is focused on severe trauma, whether it be from childhood, adolescence, or adulthood. I also help many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My therapy style is supportive 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, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive behavior therapy. I will help adapt and mold our work and therapy goals to meet your unique and specific needs. I find that clients typically benefit the most from the messaging and live chat, also phone or video as needed. I am online frequently and look forward to accommodating your schedule as you see fit.
**Unfortunately I do not have specific training in the areas of Autism, Sexual dysfunctions, Borderline Personality Disorder

Seeking support out is already a change, right? So let's keep the ball rolling... I like to encourage you to work at this and will be with you every step. Change comes from working it, movement and trying new approaches!

I look forward to working with you!

*After we are paired, please wait to book a session until I have reached out to you with further information, thank you!

She’s really flexible

Written by C.H. on Apr 16, 2021 after counseling with Kay for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

Dr. Caballero is exactly the right person to work with me. She is kind and encouraging, but she also pushes me to do the work for myself and to reinforce the work we've done in our sessions. She helps me find my best self when I'm struggling to get there on my own.

I have been to other therapists before, but Dr. Caballero is the best I've ever had. She listens to me, offers valuable solutions, and answers any questions I may have for her about anything! I was a bit skeptical at first, but as time went on, I felt more comfortable and opened up more. I have seen improvements in my life and thought patterns that I owe the help of Dr. Caballero! I definitely recommend her if you have the opportunity to have her as your therapist!

Dr. Caballero pushes me to be the best version of myself I can be. Since I started counseling with her I am better able to understand my triggers and live a more positive life. She meets me where I am at and I’m so grateful to her!

The conversations that Dr. Kay and I have helped control my anxiety. Definitely recommend her to those that need someone to talk to.

Written by A.U. on Oct 29, 2020 after counseling with Kay for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, career difficulties, and adhd

She's straight and real with you, but not in that unkind, unhelpful way. In a way that helps things click that you've probably heard or read many times. She's super sweet. I've only been with BetterHelp for a couple of weeks, but I would highly recommend it, and I would highly recommend her.

Dr. Caballero is the greatest. It feels like talking to a friend. Her answers to my questions make me reflect and go within myself to figure out some things, and I appreciate that about her. She's thorough and very understanding!

Went through a couple different counselors and was feeling very frustrated about all the wasted time. I finally found Kim by reading up on a couple counselors and choosing her. LOVE working with her. She helps me reflect so much and her observations are so insightful.

Written by C.O. on May 12, 2019 after counseling with Kay for 2 days on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and compassion fatigue

I experienced quite a bit of childhood trauma growing up. In the past, I’ve done a lot of work to understand how that trauma influences my life. I typically try to use my experiences in the most positive way possible. I started working with Kay because I’ve recently had a lot of very big life changes, some were really amazing and some were very hard for me. For the first time in my life; I felt that I didn’t have the energy to work through my difficulties and find a positive solution to my problems. I felt hopeless, overwhelmed and beyond help. I felt like my problems were so big I didn’t know where to start or how to approach them. I’ve only had one session with Kay, but after my session that feeling of hopelessness went away. Kay didn’t try to fix my problems and all of my issues are still there, but she did ask questions that helped me change my perspective on several things and that made a very big difference for me right away. Kay’s session made me feel validated and more positive about my ability to handle my challenges. Kay listened with compassion and without judgement. Kay is very good at her job and I highly recommend her!

Written by A.M. on Apr 09, 2019 after counseling with Kay for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, addictions, relationship issues, grief, and intimacy-related issues

Kay is the best therapist I’ve ever had. Before Kay treated me, I had gone through a lot of counseling sessions with other therapists in the city and nothing’s changed nor improved in my life. Kay has an amazing approach and is very caring. Not only is she a good listener and a real professional but she goes beyond her role and schedule to help me understand the root of my problems so that I don’t leave any session feeling I’ve wasted my time. She asks very good questions that make me ponder about my current status and whether I’m making a good decision or not. She has a special way of lifting up my spirit when I hit rock bottom , and she never rushes my healing or recovery. For that I am forever grateful to have her as my therapist.

Kay is a fantastic person. She helps lift you when you are at your lowest, your own personal uplifter in your corner. No matter what is going on, she doesn't judge you, and always points out the positive moves you make.
