Hello, my name is Yesenia, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (licensed in Texas), with 14 years of counseling experience (10 years, as a Licensed Professional Counselor). A majority of my counseling experience includes helping individuals with anxiety, trauma, grief, life changes, motivation, and self-esteem issues. I will work with you to create a safe environment where your thoughts and feelings may be shared freely, while receiving constructive feedback, tools, emotional support, and unconditional positive regard, as needed, throughout the course of your therapy. Thank you for having the courage to seek help, and for taking the first critical and empowering steps toward self-improvement. I look forward to working with you and supporting you to achieve your goals.
Regarding my schedule of availability for virtual sessions, I am usually available on Tuesdays, Fridays & Saturdays, from 2:15 to 7:15 PM, and you may schedule your weekly virtual sessions in advance. To schedule your virtual sessions, you may click on my schedule of availability, and choose a time slot (from the time slots available) that will work for you.
As for message response time, I usually respond to messages at least once per work day, and do not respond to messages during my personal time (away from work). Upon my return to work, I will respond to your message at the start or end of that work day. If I do not respond immediately, please be patient, as I may be attempting to respond to other clients. If you are experiencing a crisis, are having suicidal thoughts, or you or someone else is currently in danger, and are needing immediate support or intervention, please call 911 (emergency services) or 988 (Suicide and Crisis Lifeline), or go to the nearest hospital.
Lastly, regarding my communication style and recommendation, I prefer and recommend that a majority of our communication is spent within our weekly virtual sessions, since this form of communication allows me to see your nonverbal communication, which is very important in attempting to fully understand what you are feeling &/or what you are trying to express. Most importantly, our virtual sessions may allow us to have a more personable experience, which may ultimately enhance your therapeutic process. However, if you prefer not to have the virtual sessions as our main form of communication, please feel free to address this concern with me, so that we may make appropriate arrangements. If necessary, you may consider requesting another therapist who may better suit your communication preference.
Take great care, and I look forward to working with you soon.
Additional areas of focus: Relationship issues, Obsessions, Compulsions, and OCD, Phobias

Understanding, encouraging, helpful and knowledgeable. Perfect for what I need. Listened well and understood my needs based on the communication given. Couldn’t ask for more.
