About Me

Greetings! Sometimes life's challenges will prompt us to seek support and you've come to the right place. Kudos to you for taking the first step in getting the support you are seeking.

I have a master's degree in School and Professional Counseling from Amberton University. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas. As a School Counselor I have refined my skills in working with adolescents from diverse backgrounds. I have over seventeen years working with high school students and adults. I have worked with individuals with anxiety, suicidal thoughts, low self esteem, lack of motivation and significant trauma.

My therapeutic style is future-focused, goal-directed and focuses on solutions rather than on the problems. My assumption is that you have knowledge of what would make your life better and together we will work on solutions. My approach is collaborative, in order to achieve change. As a therapist/counselor, I am very open and you can tell me anything in a non judmental environment. I am here if you need to feel understood and you want the truth. If this is what you are looking for, you have come to the right place.

Written by K.E. on May 24, 2021 after counseling with Nedra for 3 months on issues concerning relationship issues, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

Nedra is great! She listens and responds in a way that really helps you dive deep into the “why’s, what’s, where’s and how’s. I find that she is willing to work with you in numerous ways that makes you as the client feel like the number one priority which is imperative when seeking someone to share your personal life details with. I believe I found the one that is willing to help me process some of my thoughts and feeling and for that I am grateful.

Nedra is a great listener and always remembers what I have going on in my life to ask me about things each week. It's been a major help having her in my life weekly through a big life transition of moving states and re-building this year. I highly recommend working with Nedra! :D

I would highly recommend working with Nedra! I have been very resistant to therapy in the past and she was extremely patient, understanding, intuitive to my needs, and so so wise. Her calming energy is one that I have rarely encountered. After every session with her, I came away with a better sense of self-respect and for that, I will always be grateful. Any patient would be lucky to be matched with Surnedra!

Nedra has been absolutely amazing! Extremely patient, positive, supportive and uplifting, Nedra has calmly guided me to observe my own thoughts, question them, not be afraid of them and learn from them. Very grateful

Nedra is very helpful and polite. She has helped me see things in ways I never thought I would see. She has helped me overcome substance abuse, emotional grief and depression.

Nedra is amazing and words honestly fail me. She is very easy to talk to and is a warm and inviting personality. She really helped me overcome a lot of problems and I can't stress enough how cool she is. Truly amazing.

Written by A.R. on Jun 26, 2020 after counseling with Nedra for 1 month on issues concerning grief, intimacy-related issues, and coping with life changes

I've made so much progress in so little time with Nedra's help.

Her thoughtfulness and warmth makes it easy to talk about difficult topics - our video sessions always feel like I'm having a conversation with a close friend.

Working with Mrs. Simmons is amazing. We’ve worked together for 3 months and I’m making a lot of progress. I can’t wait to see where I am 6 months from now.
