My name is Linda Qualia and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas.
I commend you for your courage and commitment to self-healing, self-growth, and finding solutions to your concerns and challenges. You are taking an important step.
For over 40 years I have had the privilege of partnering with adult clients from diverse backgrounds who bring various concerns and issues to our work. These include individuals undergoing major and minor life transitions, dealing with various levels of trauma, managing grief and loss, coping with chronic illness, addressing family and relationship violence, suffering with anxiety and depression, grappling with spiritual issues, and striving to lead a higher quality of life.
Each person perceives their life and their challenges in a unique way. I believe that everyone has distinct abilities and resources, as well as the capacity to develop coping skills that empower them when facing difficult situations.
My counseling style is to work collaboratively with compassion, kindness, honesty, and empathy, striving to create a safe space in which to explore concerns and to discover action steps toward resolution. A relationship of honesty, trust and integrity is essential to developing a successful, individualized counseling program; building this relational foundation is one of my primary intentions .
My counseling approach is client focused, utilizing skills and interventions that include, but are not limited to, humanistic therapy, strength-based solution focused techniques, cognitive behavioral methods, mindfulness processes, interpersonal neurobiology, and body centered perspectives.
My education includes and BA and MA in psychology and a PhD in Counselor Education. I provided leadership in the growth and development of a college counseling center and I have supervised and trained interns for over 20 years.
I welcome the opportunity and privilege to join with you in your journey.
