About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor and Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor in the state of Texas. I have over 10 years experience working in a variety of settings, including but not limited to inpatient psychiatric hospitals and outpatient therapy. My specialties are codependency and addictions related issues. My goal is to help each person be free of any addiction whether it be to drugs, alcohol, gambling, shopping or pornography. I have helped many couples work through these issues which were destroying their relationships with others.

My counseling style is client centered and respectful. My approach is warm and interactive and tailored to fit each client's current issue. I do not believe in a cookie cutter approach and believe each person's experience in life (negative and positive) affect our rational and irrational beliefs about the world and sometimes these can be identified and positively changed if possible.

I commend each client's willingness to take the courage to find a more fulling life which is built upon their individual purpose in life. If you are ready to take that step, please let me know how I can support you in these positive steps. My goal is to provide the support you need to live the life you want. Sometimes change can be painful but it need not be debilitating. Sometimes finding a supportive counselor is necessary to work through these life changes.

I look forward to working with you!

Maja has been the person I’ve needed. She is there for me and checks in on me when I least expect it, but when I need it! She is a wonderful human and counselor!

Maja is the therapist I hoped to match with and I already feel welcomed and understands my issues and how I explain my issues and always gives her honest opinion and that’s all I hoped for!

Maja has been a real blessing. As a first time therapy-goer, Maja has made the process really enlightening and welcoming. I feel like she understands me and I always leave sessions feeling some relief. Thank you Maja!

Maja is awesome! Not only does she know what she’s talking about, she cares about my goals as well as my past and how it all works together. She celebrates little accomplishments and it feels great because it’s genuine. I have never felt so empowered as I have after counseling with her with the tools she has shared with me.

Even after 1 session with Maja, I felt more clarity about what I have been experiencing in my life! She really dives in and make you feel very comfortable quickly.

Written by M.A. on Aug 02, 2021 after therapy with Maja for 2 months on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, and self esteem

She is awesome. I feel like she helps me and my partner and is here for us. I feel like she challenges me to think differently and I appreciate that. There are times where she says what you don’t want to hear but not without respect. I feel like she’s a friend that I could forever confide in.

I’ve really enjoyed the process

Written by C.H. on Aug 01, 2021 after therapy with Maja for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

I truly appreciate that Maja kept checking up on me when she noticed I kept cancelling my first session! That means more to me then anything and it actually pushed me to commit to the process! You can tell she is actually listening by the way she responds. This is my first ever therapy session and I’m glad it’s with Maja! In addition, she had such a warm personality, almost like you are talking to your friend but this “friend” is going to be very honest with you. Thank you Maja!!!

Maja is warm and friendly. She is wonderful to talk with and has made such a difference in just two sessions together.

Maja is amazing and has helped me in my healing journey so much within just 3 sessions. I look forward to speaking to her each week. Maja has experience in so many different areas, and is able to give you so much insight and valuable validation. I’m so thankful to have her as my therapist.

Written by P.R. on Jul 30, 2021 after therapy with Maja for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

What can I say, I was in a very dark place before seeing Maja Steele and now I have never felt more confident in myself. She understands me and has helped me see what I have been missing in a very gentle and loving way. I am so grateful for everything she has done for me and continues to do.

Written by E.M. on Jul 28, 2021 after therapy with Maja for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, grief, intimacy-related issues, and coping with life changes

I am so grateful for Maja!! I started therapy because I was stuck in a really low place and I couldn’t figure out how to get out. It’s been less than 3 months and Maja has helped me turn my life completely around. She always reminds me that I am the one who did all the work, but without her providing me with all the tools, I’m not sure I ever would have figured it out. Maja is a blessing and I am so happy I chose to go through this process with her!

I've only had one session with Maja but I scheduled a second session within minutes after ending our call. I felt safe, heard and understood with Maja which is very important when confiding in and trusting in a therapist.

Ms. Steele is so encouraging and reassuring while helping you use your critical thinking skills to tackle the healing process. She's sweet, yet honest and doesn't avoid the ugly topics; exactly what's needed to heal from any emotional wounds. I was so lucky she was my counselor. I feel like she was the exact person I needed.

I really like her perspective and positivity, plus her Christian aspects added to the sessions.

Written by L.E. on Jun 03, 2021 after therapy with Maja for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

Maja has been extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I felt comfortable talking to her from day one and she has helped open my eyes and ears to the right things. She has caught on to things that I'm saying that I would not have realized on my own and helps me see progress and regression if it's ever there.
