Leticia Cervantes

(MA, LPC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas, who has worked in the mental health field over 25 years, in various settings, including: psychiatric hospitals, mental health clinics, and private practice settings, with multiple populations. Each has helped me build an eclectic approach in my therapy. I believe in meeting the client "where they are," and a cookie-cutter approach does not work for everyone. I use cognitive behavioral, dialectic, brief solution-focused, and mindfulness techniques to assist my clients in meeting their therapeutic goals. I am a bit silly, a bit serious. I've been accused of being "too positive" at times, but I do believe in adapting and learning from every situation.
It takes great courage and resilience to seek assistance from a total stranger, and it would be my honor to navigate in this journey with you. I am available during weekday afternoon and evenings. However, I am also willing to open sessions on weekends to accommodate your needs.

Written by K.A. on Mar 03, 2021 after counseling with Leticia for 10 months on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

I absolutely love Leti. She is patient when I’m trying to find the right words, she lifts my spirits, and has helped me overcome SOOO many obstacles that the last year has brought on. She understands what I’m facing and when I’m at a loss for words, she brings them out with great introspective questions. I feel like I can be completely open and honest with her about everything under the sun, and she doesn’t even mind my potty mouth. <3

Leticia has been the best Therapist I have had in a long time. She never judges and always keeps an open mind. I feel like I can talk to her about anything and not feel scrutinized at all. She also keeps it real and doesn't hold back. She gives me great advice and always has my best interest at heart. I was matched with her through betterhelp and I am so grateful they did a great job matching us. I look forward to each session and she always makes herself available and look forward to working on myself with her for years to come.

Leticia Cervantes very professional, straight to the point but also can pull back when need to be.... I for one am very surprised that I feel comfortable enough to speak with her.

Leticia creates a safe place to explore my feelings. She provides me with tools to overcome weaknesses, better understand myself and create a plan to move forward.

I have never tried counseling before so I did not know what to expect or how to begin. Leticia has been great at helping me sort out & address my issues. She responds quickly and reaches out if I haven't checked in with her in a few days. I'm so thankful for her!

Leticia had a wonderful energy that has me looking forward to our meetings. She listens and offers relevant anecdotes that keep things interesting, and gain an outside perspective. She has the innate ability to bring any topic back to the main issue at hand.

Written by J.A. on May 08, 2020 after counseling with Leticia for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, self esteem, anger management, bipolar disorder, and coping with life changes

This is my millionth attempt at seeking therapy. But my first attempt at online therapy. I was matched within the same day of signing up and received a message from Mrs. Cervantes quite quickly. The first session I had I was nervous about, I even thought about cancelling it or not showing up for it. However I decided to push through and give it a shot and once the session was finished I had genuine hope. I was given multiple exercises to work on and I have applied so many of the things I learned from those as well as what we’ve talked about into my daily life. Mrs. Cervantes doesn’t just “mmhm” or dead silence you. She actually reads and listens to what you’re saying and provides competent responses and questions in return. And SHE’S FUNNY! I truly appreciate that as I need someone who interacts with me and doesn’t just expect me to take the lead or acts like their off in their own world. I look forward to our sessions and am excited about reaching my goals. Thank you Leticia Cervantes!
