I am a Bilingual Licensed Professional Counselor. I provide counseling services to individuals, couples, and families of all ages who may be experiencing depression, anxiety, loss, family conflicts, domestic violence, substance use/misuse and/or a variety of related mental health concerns. I am delighted to be able to help you find or renew hope, strengths, and/or to develop reachable goals which will enable you to fulfill your full potential. My goal is to support my clients through life's stresses and help them heal, resolve, and manage the issues that may seem impossible to overcome.
I have over 23 years of counseling experience working with individuals as well as couples and families. I use a solution-focused approach as well as CBT (change your thinking and you will change your behaviors). I specialize in facilitating conflict resolution as well as working with couples on relationship issues. I offer premarital counseling as well. I have extensive experience working with ex-spouses on co-parenting and have worked with children for 25 years. I am also certified in advanced family mediation and have experience in mediating child custody and divorce cases.
I have experience in working with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, grief, stress management, relationship issues, anger management, and coping with health-related complications. I often work to help clients achieve acceptance, develop congruency with the self, develop healthier habits, tap into personal strengths, and challenge distorted thought patterns/beliefs.
Sometimes life can be overwhelming and the storms of life rage. Having a counselor who can provide tools necessary to find a sense of peace and acceptance is so invaluable. Whether you are needing help with anxiety, depression, self esteem and self confidence, stress, guilt/shame, past hurts, relationship issues, or substance use disorders, I use a holistic approach to healing and personal growth and can help you find healthy ways to cope and transform your life. Recovery is possible for everyone and I hope to help you find your pathway.
I believe that every person is capable of healing. Therapy should be a partnership between therapist and client, and together, we will find a therapeutic method that works well for your family. My primary areas of focus include working with adults, children and families to address needs related to behavioral struggles, depression, anxiety, and relationship disruptions. I believe that play is the universal language of children, and that through play therapy experiences, children are able to make sense of their world and heal.
Life with all its blessings also comes with struggles, disappointments and loss. Sometimes the problems of life can mentally and emotionally overwhelm us and interfere with our ability to maintain valued relationships and/or function in our daily environment. It is in these times of mental and emotional distress that a trained therapist can come alongside you to help you process through these issues in a non-judgmental, empathetic and safe environment. I will assist in guiding you to a healthier perspective on those issues that are causing you mental and emotional pain.

Hola! Welcome to Vida Counseling TX! My name is Jennifer and I am a bilingual therapist that is passionate in empowering young adult individuals in reaching their full potential in life. I especially enjoy working with first generation young adults to help them process their generational trauma, identity development, and manage relationships and hardships. Young adults face many difficult life transitions. And young adults navigating additional stressors related to culture, first generational hardships, and a world where they feel they have little to no guidance/support can be even more difficult.
I believe that counseling is something that everyone can benefit from. Counseling is not advice giving; it is teaching, empathizing, and listening. Are you going through something that you're not sure how to deal with? Is your teen or preteen struggling with something and you don't know how to help? Are you feeling overwhelmed by emotions and life? I am here for you. As a graduate of Dallas Baptist University with a Master's of Arts in Professional Counseling, I have been trained to help you and it is something that I desire to do.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have a holistic perspective to counseling. I believe as humans we can always reach beyond our pain or limitations and can expand our understanding of life experiences to be healthier than we are today. I have 17 years of experience working with children and adolescents dealing with a multitude of issues including anxiety and trauma. I have experience working with blended families and divorce situations. I am a Certified Trauma Specialist through the National Institute for Trauma & Loss In Children.
Having been a Licensed therapist here in the Panhandle for over 19 years, I may offer new insight and coping skills to help you face your current and previous stressors. Resilience and adaptability are positive qualities we all possess that may get overshadowed by life's unpredictable events or even our own individual brain chemistry. A therapist is basically a catalyst to assist you in finding your way back to a healthier, happier you. Self insight and acceptance, boundaries, visualization and breathwork as well as Mindful new ways of thinking or seeing issues may help you on your journey. I look forward to working with you.
