Marco Hernandez

(MS, LPC)

About Me

I am a bilingual (English and Spanish) and bicultural (Mexican, American) Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Texas with 13 years of experience in the mental health field. I appreciate your time and would like to share more about my experience in the following paragraphs. I thank you beforehand for your time.

My experience includes working directly with adolescents, adults, and families within the general and also marginalized populations. This includes working with clients in the forensic setting (general population and sex offenders), community clinics, Integrated Health Care, voluntary and involuntary Inpatient Psychiatric Hospital and Substance Use care and at an Intensive Outpatient Program for Substance Use.

The specific therapy services I have been able to provide include assessment, individual, family, and couples therapy as well as psycho-educational groups in several settings mentioned previously. More specifically my work experience includes administering and interpreting psychological evaluations (English and Spanish), wrap-around services, reducing recidivism (from Emergency Rooms and the Criminal Justice System), providing psychosocial rehabilitation, coordination of care, administering screenings and intakes, developing treatment plans, providing therapy services, assisting with Spanish to English clinical translations, medication adherence training, administering clinical rating scales, performing risk assessments, engaging in de-escalation interventions, collaborating with primary care and other community agencies, and administering drug screenings.

It has been my passion to work with underserved populations in order to bridge the gap there is in access to healthcare services and provide them with quality care that encompasses the whole person and system.

My experience in the field encompasses providing care for difficult to serve populations within the mental health field. The ability to provide therapeutic services in both English and Spanish has yielded opportunities that target traditionally untouched populations. It is my belief that my assets of dedication, passion, empathy, and cross-cultural conceptualization of clinical issues, places me in a position to provide tailored clinical services to those who are most in need.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss treatment or to gain further information about my services. My hope is that you find someone to work with that best fits your needs.

Written by L.E. on Mar 12, 2021 after counseling with Marco for 3 months on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Marco has been really patient and has been able to support and understand my primary needs. We have been trying to work on a plan that will help me to where I want to be. He is always open and looking for options to deal with the issues that I am trying to address. I am glad that I have been paired with him as he understands my background and it also helps that we can have the sessions in Spanish and it helps me to express better.

Just like many others, 2020 has been a rough year for me. I’ve had plenty of struggles and thankfully I’ve been able to turn to Marco for each and every one. He’s been so kind and patient. His advice and expertise has brought me a lot of peace. I’m so thankful for BetterHelp and Marco and I’ve recommended it to several friends.

Me siento comoda en mi sesiones con el

Written by A.N. on Nov 19, 2020 after counseling with Marco for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

I've only had one session with Marco thus far but he was very compassionate and provided a safe space in which to express my feelings, fears, and hopes. I am looking forward to continuing to work with him to address the issues that led to me seeking out therapy. I am confident that he can provide me with the tools I need to care for myself emotionally.

Marco Hernandez has really helped work through a painful breakup, anxiety, codependency, and so much more. He really listens and asks thought-provoking questions to help you identify the root of the cause. He also communicates with you effectively and makes efforts to get you on his weekly schedule. I've learned so much from working with him, definitely recommend if you're looking for a compassionate counselor!

I thoroughly enjoy my sessions with Marco. He is very calm , collected and focused. I really feel heard and I appreciate his ability to hone in and ask the right questions to help me explore my challenges. He is professional and non-judgemental.

Marco has been a godsend. he has a way of really digging in & finding the source of your troubles. we’ve shared quite a few sessions together in the past couple of months and each one has been nothing but short of amazing. i thank this man for his patience and understanding.

My counselor Marco listens to my concerns, was supportive and is very helpful

Written by C.H. on Aug 14, 2020 after counseling with Marco for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Marco has been great. I have been to over 10 years of therapy in my life and in our first session Marco identified things that no other therapists have ever identified. Most therapists I’ve seen in the past have looked at my situation at the time (parents’ divorce, difficult job) as the “this is the problem”. Marco drilled down to my loneliness in our first session. I didn’t even realize it was a thing I was doing or feeling. I wouldn’t have expected virtual therapy to actually work. It was kind of a last ditch effort. Honestly, he’s been a huge source or relief. I feel seen for the first time ever. Can’t say enough about him.

Written by M.A. on Aug 04, 2020 after counseling with Marco for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Marco is a WONDERFUL counselor. He gets so involved in our sessions that he has actually tears up occasionally while listening to me be in so much pain. He is kind, considerate, uplifting and has helped me a lot! The only downside to my experience with Marco has been the unavoidable lack of true interaction as this is a web-based service. However, the flip side to that is that he is only a message away. He always responds quickly and genuinely cares. I would trust him with my children's mental health if they needed it. He is wonderful. Words cannot describe it but if you are looking for help or even just someone to talk to, in my opinion, you found the right place if you're reading this.

Marco Hernandez has been very patient and understanding. I felt I could talk to him without feeling judge. He takes step by step and respect boundaries. I appreciate that he makes sure it goes by my own pace and boundaries.
