“Courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding your whole life.”
― Shannon L. Alder
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Texas. I have been aiding individuals, couples and families towards better mental health for the last 7 years. I work with individuals with a wide range of concerns such as marriage/couple/family counseling, depression, anxiety, stress, self-esteem, family conflict, and relationship issues. I specialize in marital and relationship issue. My approach is unique to each client and one that is committed to working together to ensure you accomplish your goals. I use a mixture of Person Centered Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy and I execute these modalities through a client centered method that includes snippets of life coaching.
As a woman of color, I would be a great match for interested in a counselor of color with no judgment that provides a safe space for all individuals.
Life is full of surprises and obstacles. My goal is to aid you with tangible and practical solutions, tools, and techniques that can be applied to all areas of your life. I am passionate about assisting you with resolving various life problems by encouraging and promoting positive and healthy mental health, as well as, healing and changing. Therapy is a collaborative process. Working with me you’ll quickly find that I respect you by recognizing that there’s no single one size fits all therapeutic approach and will treat you as the individual that you are.
My hope is that you will take the next steps so that we can begin the process of bringing about healing and change to your situation. As your therapist, I can’t promise you the work will be easy, but it will be fulfilling. I will work with you in processing difficult feelings and emotions, and setting goals that are important to you, and help guide you as you work through them.

Maxi Malone-Deese is an exceptional therapist. She will take the time to fully listen to you, verify what she heard and give you personalized guidance to your concerns. She is realistic in her advice, but she also is encouraging through the process. I am incredibly grateful for the time I had with her. She has been a true joy to work with.

Maxi is an incredible therapist who gives you the real! Im so sad I’ve had to cut out sessions short but I will be back and will be contacting her again - she’s given me a safe space to discuss how I’m feeling and given fresh perspective on my circumstances. I definitely recommend Maxi if you’re ready to face your situations head on! One step at a time, she’s got you!
