Bonnie Lilly MA, NCC, RPT, LPC
Bonnie Lilly is a Licensed Professional Counselor, Register Play Therapist and Pastoral Counselor. I obtained my M.A. in Professional Counseling from Liberty University in 2016; my M.A. in Pastoral Counseling from Liberty University Baptist Theological Seminary in 2014; and my B.S. in Psychology with emphasis in Christian Counseling from Liberty University in 2012. I received a Certificate in Play Therapy from Capella University and registered with the state in 2018 as a Registered Play Therapist.
I believe that all humankind is created mind, body and spirit and with relational needs. We are all relational beings in need of relationships that are encouraging and uplifting; I also believe we are all born with a God void that only a relationship with Jesus Christ can fill. By taking care of our whole-being- psychologically, physically, and spiritually we can experience life transformation & the renewing of the mind, holistically.
Anything is possible, as our past does not determine our future. I draw from several different therapeutic approaches, integrating per individual needs; such as Client Centered, Solution Focused, Reality, Choice therapies and I favor Cognitive Behavior Therapy. I particularly enjoy working with individuals, couples, and children as well as families.
My passion is to see healing & restoration to hurting people while helping people find their full potential and live life abundantly; to see generational patterns stopped in their tracks, changing one life, one family at a time. We can learn and find a balance within our live, experiencing real life change full of joy, peace and love.
Crystal Kitchen MS, LPC
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.
Rachel Gonzales MS, LPC
Rachel Gonzales is a Licensed Professional Counselor who earned her B.S. in Psychology from Tarleton State University in 2008 and M.S. in Counseling Psychology from Texas A&M University Corpus Christi in 2017. Rachel was born in Colorado but moved to Austin, TX at an early age making Texas home.
As a mom, I like to incorporate this perspective in my counseling. I am deeply rooted in person-centered, cognitive behavioral, and solution focused therapies. However, I use several integrated modalities which help the client see their full potential as a person. This also helps them recognize how much control we can have over ourselves as well as how we can change the way we think which influences the way we act. I have 4 years’ experience working with adults, couples, adolescents, and groups. I believe the family and close support systems are one of the most important places a person can rely on and I focus on bringing these systems into therapy where it allows. My primary goal as a therapist is to help the client realize the power they have within themselves and that they do not have to let their past experiences or traumas control their present lives. I provide a safe and empowering setting to help facilitate growth at any age.
Angelina Ortiz MS, LPC-A
Angelina M. Ortiz is a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate. I obtained my M.S. in Counseling from Texas A&M University Corpus Christi in 2021 and my B.S. in Biomedical Sciences with a minor in Psychology from Texas A&M University- Kingsville in 2013.
My counseling philosophy is rooted in the client-centered approach as I believe each and every person is unique and is an expert of their own personal experiences. My overall therapeutic approach is integrated with several interventions that allow me to best assist each client in working towards their goals. I have experience working with adults, adolescents, and geriatric individuals.
I believe that each person has the tools to achieve their personal goals and create their preferred future. As a therapist, I could provide education, interventions, and a positive, supportive environment that allows you to discuss your story freely. I am blessed to have the opportunity to work with clients while they are on the path of exploring and creating a future they are passionate about. My hope for each session is that a client leaves feeling fully heard, supported, and confident that they have the strength to achieve their goals and reach their full potential while withstanding any stressors that they may face.
Sharon Mata MA, LPC-A, LCDC
A little bit about my professional/educational background: I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate being currently supervised by Dr. Gregory Sparrow. I am also a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor. I have a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Texas A & M International University and as part of my academic training, I obtained a certification as a bilingual counselor in English and Spanish. Personas que solo hablen espanol son completamente bienvenidas!
I have experience working with couples, families, adults, and adolescents, as well as groups. Your story, pain and struggles are unique to you and who you are. Therefore, I do not believe therapy is a one-size fits all. I consider myself to be an eclectic counselor, which means that I accommodate my treatment approaches to fit my clients rather than follow just one approach. Understanding what and why will be the first step to make long-lasting and impactful changes in your life, according to your goals and level of readiness.
I am ready to meet you where you are on this journey.
Dr. Liza Rodriguez
Dr. Liza Rodriguez is a licensed and ordained Pastoral Counselor. She obtained her MA In Clinical Pastoral Counseling from Corpus Christi Theological Seminary in 2016 and her doctorate degree in Clinical Counseling from Texas Graduate School of Theology in 2020.
As a Chrisitan counselor my passion is to ensure a safe atmosphere where clients and their families can express their vulnerabilities while sharing their stories. My goal is to build a therapeutic relationship characterized by collaboration, openness, and trust. By practicing a client centered approach I have the opportunity to walk alongside each client and provide support and education in various areas of need which include grief, depression, anxiety and relational difficulties. By utilizing the Word of God as a foundational truth I have the chance to witness others excel not only emotionally and mentally but spiritually as well.
