About Me

Hi, my name is Lisa Cruz. I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Texas. I have about five years of experience working in the mental health field. I have a master's degree in psychology. I have counseled college students and worked at a community mental health center.

I have experience working with individuals who experience depression, anxiety, mood swings, anger issues, psychosis, and other mental health symptoms. I have worked with youth and adults. I have an eclectic approach when it comes to counseling. I like to combine different modalities of counseling, such as person-centered, CBT, and solution-focused therapy. I strive to help my clients identify and achieve their goals.

My goal is to help clients build their coping skills, so that they can move forward in life and enjoy all that life has to offer.

I really appreciate Lisa Cruz’s help these last few months. With her help, I’ve grown a lot since the time I started working with her. The dark place I was in feels way more manageable now, too. I highly recommend her!

My sessions with Lisa have been so insightful and rewarding. Therapy was quite intimidating to me, but she makes it feel so natural and comfortable. Looking forward to continue this journey of mine alongside Lisa!

I really felt like I could tell her anything! It wasn’t just talking about it but figuring out why and she gave me “homework” to help my stay accountable with making things better.

Lisa Cruz is much better than the psychoanalyst that never spoke and shows much more talent at psychoanalysis. I feel supported to seek my better self with her guidance. She doesn't go for retraumatizing me, even if I mention something that my other analyst would get curious about. She is professoinally helping me get better ( i see results) and she will do no harm .
