In my practice, I work with each person individually, and use the client's goals to inform the types of therapy I use in each session. I primarily use cognitive based models to help clients change thinking patterns, and use behavioral therapies to help clients change unhelpful habits. I like to help clients better utilize their innate strengths, hobbies, relationships, and healthy belief systems to help create change in their lives. I view the human person from a body-mind-soul perspective. It is my goal to help clients address deficiencies, and grow in each domain of person-hood, whether that be growing in their spiritual beliefs, developing healthy coping skills, or overcoming obstacles both big and small.
I have a Master's in Counseling Education from West Texas A&M University. I am fully credentialed as a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas. I have worked in various mental health facilities ranging from juvenile detention centers, to domestic violence shelters, and mental health hospitals. I have provided counseling to individuals, and couples, as well as, facilitated group therapy for clients from all walks of life. I have worked with all types of clients ranging from individuals in need of general support, to running groups for people with severe mental illnesses, or suffering from chemical dependency.
I help people break free from addiction, heal from trauma, overcome depression, and confront their daily anxieties. I specialize in helping clients change habits and thought patterns that stop them from living to their full potential.

Simon has been a God send to me when I really needed it. He helped me work through my grief and alcoholism. Simon is very perspective and helped me with my personal issues. I would recommend him to anyone.

Honestly just a great personality. Right off the bat, his presence just made it feel easier. I was not looking forward to being matched with a stranger but from the first meeting he made it super easy to connect. And could create a rough plan / strategy for moving forward which made me feel like I was with someone who knew what he was doing.

Simon is great!! Apart of him being friendly & comfortable to talk with. He's solution-focused which is rare among therapists. He helps with setting a clear goal and working towards this each session. I feel like I've made a lot of progress after just a few sessions.

Ive had Simon as my therapist for a while now, and i can easily say he's helped me alot. I dont feel judged when i talk to him. He takes the pressure off my shoulders my making me feel safe, respected, and listened to. I feel motivated after every session. Ive struggled with stress, depression, and social anxiety for as long as i remember. And since talking to him, i feel like i can finally be myself around people. I feel like i can finally embrace people. I dont feel as afraid anymore. And its because Simon was there to understand me and to talk me through it all. Depression is still an ongoing struggle, as ive recently experienced a loss to someone close to me. But i dont plan on seeing any other therapist to support me in my grief. Each session i have with him i feel like i shed something thats holding me back, while gaining insight that i can use to propel me forward. Im very happy to have him as my therapist.
