Hello and welcome! I am so glad you are here. It takes great courage to take the first step in seeking help.
My name is Norma Jean Salinas, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas. I earned my bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism from The University of Texas at Austin, and my master’s degree in mental health counseling with "high distinction" from the University of the Southwest in Hobbs, New Mexico. I am a mid-life career changer in my second act and have over five years of counseling experience working with children, adolescents, and adults in multiple settings including schools, jails, non-profits, and private practice. I have successfully treated individuals from all walks of life and backgrounds who presented with issues including, but not limited to, stress, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, adjustment disorders, grief, loss, anger management, ADHD, domestic violence, and women’s/men’s issues.
My style is very warm, empathetic, relaxed, and non-judgmental. At times, I may even use humor if the situation is appropriate. I like to use a client-centered approach because it allows you, the client, to direct your treatment. After all, the client knows himself/herself best and is the expert on his/her own life. My job is to collaborate with you, gently guide you, walk beside you, and hold space for you. I will always meet you where you are at and never force anything upon you.
I utilize an eclectic and integrative approach in working with my clients which means I pull from different evidence-based theories, modalities, and techniques so that I can tailor a treatment plan specific to your goals and needs because there is a no one-size-fits-all approach. This allows me to give you the various tools and skills that will best benefit you in meeting your goals and needs. Equally important is that you choose the right therapist who’s a good fit for you because building a good and solid therapeutic alliance between you (the client) and your therapist is crucial to a successful outcome.
I know that the unknown can be really scary sometimes, but you deserve to feel better and live a full and complete life, so if you are ready to take the next step, and you feel that we would be a good fit, let’s get started. I am here to support, encourage, and empower you, and I would be honored to walk alongside you in your journey.
Thank you so much for your consideration.

Norma seems like a great listener and even though I’m a scatter brain she keeps me on topic
Norma Jean is a very supportive and responsive counselor. I feel like she is very good at guiding me through my thoughts and feelings. She is available in between sessions, which is super helpful. She has helped me take the next steps in my life and I will be forever grateful for that.
Norma has helped me tremendously. She has been nothing but the best to me and has listened and truly understands my stance on my current situations. I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience with Norma.
