(MS, LPC-S)

About Me

Thank you for taking these steps today. My name is Leonel Longoria, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas and bring over 15 years of clinical counseling experience. I have worked in various settings, across all platforms and populations and have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical and/or sexual trauma or emotional abuse. I also bring experience in the form of professional development and management and can apply my knowledge and career experience and merge them with my clinical expertise to assist in career/professional development on small to large scale endeavors.

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, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Leonel is incredible. He helps you solve problems and make plans, and gives you perspective by asking questions — super grateful!

Leonel is the first therapist I’ve ever had that hasn’t tried to “parent me.” He actively listens and asks me questions that have me questioning my own words and behaviors. He has a supportive, patient, and gentle approach, which is exactly what I was looking for.

He's truly a good listener. He makes a sincere effort to relate to your situation and is keen on making genuine observations regarding your feelings and situations that not a lot of other people would be able to do. Highly recommend!
