Phyllis Houston


About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor- Supervisor with a national board certification in counseling and a Specialist Degree in counseling and psychology. I have over 20 years experience in counseling with diverse populations from many different backgrounds. I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, women's issues, relationship issues, and career concerns. I have been successful in helping clients become emotionally healthier and make better decisions.

My counseling style is eclectic and insight oriented. I combine rational-emotive, psychodynamic, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. I also use reality therapy techniques to assist clients in evaluating their present situation and setting goals for the future.

If you are struggling with depression, feeling discouraged, isolated or anxious and fearful, I understand and I can help. I have the credentials necessary to bring hope and change to brighten your tomorrows. I enter the process with you and will assist you in reaching your goals for treatment. You no longer have to struggle alone but have someone ready to help meet your needs.

Phyllis Houston is a God-send! I instantly felt comfortable with her and was able to open up. She listened and gave me advice that I started to do each day. I like her a lot and would highly recommend her!

Unfortunately, I am in a difficult season right now. And I use the word “season” because I know it won’t last forever. Fortunately, I have been matched w therapist Phyllis Houston. What a blessing! Phyllis has helped me so much already. She actively listens, offers suggestions and challenges me with intention. I look forward to my session w her each week. It’s okay to not be okay. TalkTherapy (and Phyllis!) have started to equipped me to become a healthier me. So thankful!
