Hello. My name is Louis Huddleston. I have worked in the counseling field since 2011. I have worked with children, adolescents and adults on a wide range of mental health issues. These issues include depression, anxiety, personality disorders and psychotic disorders. I began in the counseling field working with incarcerated adult males. Shortly after, I transitioned to working with children and adolescents in the public school system.

I like to empower my client's to make the best decision for them. If you need help, or just a listening ear, feel free to reach out to me.

Louis has been a great listener and thoughtful advisor. I had read other reviews about him before we met and they were all positive and have proven to be true. I was very lucky to be matched with him right off the bat.

Louis has a straight forward approach in his conversation that I found very helpful. He was validating while also steering me or challenging me to think differently. I didn't feel the need to sugarcoat anything, and I think his experience working within the prison system made me feel comfortable disclosing things about myself and family. Thank you!

What I love most about Louis is that he listens to what I have to say and then offers appropriate guidance. He offers me opportunities to ask questions and he challenges me to reshape my negative thinking. We've only interacted a few times, but so far he's helped immensely!
