As a wife, mother, and counselor, I believe that we are all relational beings and need relationships that are encouraging and uplifting! Everything is possible and our past does not determine our future. We can learn and find a balance within our lives and change!
I draw from several different therapeutic approaches such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Play Therapy, including Client-Centered Play Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy; however I favor Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). I particularly enjoy working with individuals, children, couples, and families.
My passion is to see healing and restoration to hurting people while helping people find their full potential and live life abundantly. I was born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas, am happily married with three amazing adult children and three awesome fur-babies.
Anique Gonzalez is a Licensed Professional Counselor. She obtained her M.S. in Professional Counseling from Texas A&M Corpus Christi in 2016; and her B.S in Psychology from Texas State University in 2012.
I believe in people, their resiliency, and their ability to change their situation and habits. I believe in everyone’s ability to recover and evolve from difficult life situations when provided with support. As humans, life experiences can be traumatic, significantly stressful, and impact our ability to navigate the waters at times. My passion is to aid people in their road to recovery and the pursuit of healthier outcomes for themselves and those they love. Counseling is not a one size fits all. It is vital to tailor counseling services to the needs of my client and offer them a safe, non-judgmental space to work through their struggles and fine healing. Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must, but take the step! The journey does not have to be taken alone.
Jessica Hinojosa is a Licensed Professional Counselor. I obtained my M.S. in Counseling from Texas A&M University Corpus Christi in 2016; and my B.S. in Psychology from Texas State University San Marcos in 2012.
My counseling philosophy is strongly rooted in a person centered approach with some extra emphasis on how our thoughts affect our ability to live out our life’s purpose. I have experience working with adults, adolescents, teens and families. I believe it’s important to provide a safe place for each client to build compassion for themselves and learn from the hard times that we all experience. We are all constantly evolving and with help from one another we can all be accepting of the true human experience. Counseling can sometimes be scary and unfamiliar, but it’s important for each client to feel they have a place to be their true selves without any judgement. I hope to honor every client’s story and with each counseling session allow that person to leave feeling empowered.
“We are each made for goodness, love and compassion. Our lives are transformed as much as the world is when we live with these truths.”
Crystal Kitchen is a Licensed Professional Counselor. She obtained her M.S. in Counseling Education from Texas A&M Corpus Christi in 2012; and her B.S in Psychology from Texas A&M Corpus Christi 2006.
The modalities that I use for treatment are deeply rooted in person-centered and positive psychology. Overall my therapeutic approach is integrated with several types of therapy that fit with the individual/s and their goals.
The most insightful thing I’ve learned as a mental health professional is that the answer to our questions lie within ourselves. Depression, anxiety, and trauma can cloud our thoughts and vision. As a therapist I want to help individuals look within themselves and acknowledge their inner strength that was there all along. I want to be able to provide a healthy sense of safety and trust for facilitating growth in individuals. My hope is that I can encourage individuals to be brave and never give up on themselves. Together we can rediscover what is important and how worthy they truly are to become healthy and at peace.
Stacey Garcia is a Licensed Professional Counselor-Intern. I obtained my M.S. in Counseling from Texas A&M University Corpus Christi in 2017 and my B.S. in Psychology from Texas A&M University Corpus Christi in 2010.
My goal as a counselor is to help my clients learn about themselves and help them to discover what it means to them to live their best life. I use a Client Centered Approach to help my clients focus and recognize what is truly important to them so they may be able to thrive. I believe God has put me on this earth to walk with those who need it, to support them, and to listen to not just their spoken words, but to their hearts. I believe mindfulness and self-care are keys to a person’s wellbeing. I would love to take this journey of seeking out your best self with you.
