About Me

Welcome! My name is Margarita Abrego, MA, LPC. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas. I have been working in the mental health profession for over 10 years; of which I have worked as a licensed clinician for 3 years. I have experience in counseling clients from diverse populations, and spiritual backgrounds with a variety of challenging issues and concerns.
I believe that personal growth, and self-discovery are empowering and necessary for living fully. With warmth and openness, I offer a listening ear, and a safe space to express/explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviors. I am eager to assist you as you become more empowered and self-aware, live more open and less afraid, become a better communicator, to identify and utilize effective coping skills, improve your esteem, set boundaries and improve relationships.
My counseling style is rather eclectic. I utilize a variety of treatment modalities based on the need of the individual, family or couple. My goal is to provide a safe environment for my clients to speak openly about life's stressors in a collaborative and safe environment. Together we will explore, develop and create sense of balance, peace and self-care. During our time together, we will explore and identify relevant and effective strategies for building better relationships with yourself and others. Please note *** I do not provide legal/court documentation, diagnosis, assessment, or treatment reports, or letters for ANY clinically-related purpose, clients who need such things will need to see a in-person provider.

Reviews

Written by V.I. on Apr 11, 2021 after counseling with Margarita for 2 months on issues concerning lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, parenting issues, career difficulties, bipolar disorder, and coping with life changes

Very great listener and focuses on the struggles and reflects on how they’re working towards or against the goals. Listens first and checks in on how the session is going.
