I'm Dr. Ana Guadalupe Reyes, a Licensed Professional Counselor, Board Certified Counselor, Usui Reiki Master/Teacher, and Certified Humanistic Sandtray Therapist in Texas. As a counselor, I compassionately accompany people through painful moments in their life, supporting them in moving through their emotions as they come. I center my work around the liberation and healing of marginalized and racialized folx - mainly immigrants, queer and trans siblings, and Black and Latinx folx. My areas of focus include sexual identity, gender identity, spiritual/ transpersonal issues, anxiety, and trauma, amongst others.

To help understand and navigate the healing process, I draw upon psychodynamic/analytic, existential-humanistic, Jungian, experiential, ego-state, cognitive-behavioral, transpersonal , and trauma-informed orientations.
Whether one seeks relief from anxiety, trauma, relational impasses, or life disillusionment, therapy can help. It is unfortunate that insufficiently engaged approaches to therapy, prohibitive rates, and the unconscionable reluctance of most clinicians to accept insurance fail so many clients, who in good faith seek to discover a healing of heart and mind. As a psychodynamic therapist, I view my role as an empathic change agent employed to help bring about a fuller knowledge of self and a more liberated experience of life and relationship. I also supervise highly promising interns from NWU available for as low as $15-30 per session.

I look at mental health from an integrative perspective. People are best understood and change is best maintained by taking into account all aspects of a person including physical health, genetic influences, cultural identities, behavioral patterns and past experiences. My therapeutic approach emphasizes an appreciation for the complexity and uniqueness of all of my clients. I provide a safe space to explore your thoughts, feelings, and actions, so that you can better understand yourself and obtain direction on how to grow. I will collaborate with you to create an individualized treatment plan based on your specific needs.

The focus of my practice is providing SAP substance abuse assessments to employees who are subject to the Department of Transportation (DOT) drug and alcohol regulations. “SAP” evaluations are only provided to employees who are required to see an SAP under federal law. If an employer is not under the auspices of the DOT, the employee would receive a drug/alcohol counselor (DAC) evaluation. What differentiates an SAP from a DAC is that the SAP has completed a Qualification Training and SAP Exam covering Part 40 and the model rules. Neither the Qualification Training or the SAP Exam is related to a case that is not under the DOT.

People are constantly moving towards life or moving away from it. My goal is to help individuals gain the skills to recognize these shifts but there is no cookie-cutter approach to therapy. By maintaining respectful curiosity for their unique story clients' values are clarified and their realities expanded. Someone I really admire once said, "you don't know what you think until you've said it." However which way you may be feeling "stuck" in life I invite you to come figure it out with me. Call me today to do a 15 minute free interview today so that we can make sure we are a good fit to schedule an appointment: +1-281-369-8984

My philosophy on what makes an effectual clinician is deep compassion along with a strong ability to confront what a client can not see, doesn't want to see, or runs from, in a way that is digestible. This leads to transformational changes that are permanent and life changing. In my opinion, Carl Jung said it best, "Every defeat of the ego is a victory for the soul."

My clients are bright teens, brilliant young adults, and some of the most loving parents and passionate professionals I know In fact, many of my clients are therapists nurses, or other "helpers" themselves. Some people start therapy seeking relief from anxiety or depression, recovery from an eating disorder, healing from a past hurt, or guidance for a specific issue in the present. In our work together, you will build new skills that foster authenticity, connection and resilience so that you can let go of perfectionism, avoidance, and any other armor that's keeping you stuck in harmful patterns.

You want to live the truth and fullness of who you are, but somehow you question your worthiness and struggle to find your authentic voice. It seems your key relationships or life circumstances encourage you to deny, hide, or diminish who you are. Perfectionism, people pleasing, performing, and the need to control have taken over your life, and the stress is causing pain and dis-ease. Often you feel anxious, overwhelmed, and burdened by life’s demands. Or you’re depressed and disconnected from yourself and others or angry and out of control, numbing to get by. Let me help you regain your center and move forward, authentically.

Congratulations on reaching out for help! I've been there and know it's not easy. In fact it's scary as hell! The fact is everyone on this planet struggles. It's the human condition and we all need help from time to time. I guarantee you that if I'm having problems with my plumbing, I call a plumber. I've been a therapist now for 30 years and can safely say I've pretty much seen it all. Most of us think our problems are really different than everyone else's, but I assure you we're all much more alike than we are different. The truth is everyone just wants to be happy, feel at peace, and have successful loving relationships.

In addiction recovery, your biggest adversary is your own mind. Maybe you've asked yourself "why do I have such a strong intent for positive changes, but just as things start to improve I seem to change my mind?" It's the same experience for most of us in recovery; completely normal. Recovery support programs give you the tools you need to transform your life, but what's often missing are the skills needed to use those tools, and a healed nervous system that will allow it. A set of daily practices for both mind and body will change everything for you. Ask about HeartMath and the Safe and Sound Protocol for polyvagal toning!

My approach is totally tailored to you. It is as unique as you are. You are yourself and there is only one like you- YOU! It is non-judgmental in nature and I will meet you where you are and will go at a pace that is comfortable for you. Therefore, I take the time to truly understand you, your thought processes, your personality, and unique life experiences. I am interested in honoring your past and how it affects your present. Clearing out the “clutter” you may have gathered will help you reach a clean slate. Then the potential for a new level of creating, clarity and consciousness can be added to your future.

Who really gets you? Not feeling heard or appreciated? Lonely? Time to be bold? Change is hard and can be scary, but we change by taking one small step. That takes courage. Asking for help is really okay. I offer a caring and safe space in which you get to explore your emotional needs, overcome limiting and perfectionistic beliefs, and create a vision for a richer and more meaningful life. My approach to therapy is collaborative, holistic, non-authoritarian and respectful, and I take into consideration your relationships, family traditions, work life, cultural and spiritual beliefs, and social and sexual identities -- in short, your STORY!

Transpersonal Therapists

How does transpersonal therapy work?

Transpersonal therapy focuses on a patient’s spirituality and meaning in life. Transpersonal therapists might borrow from Eastern traditions as well as Western psychology. They may incorporate techniques including meditation, visualization, hypnotherapy, dream analysis, and or breathwork to produce altered states of consciousness. The therapist helps the patient to access their consciousness and spirituality to work through difficult mental states.

How long does transpersonal therapy last?

Because the goal is to understand a person as a whole, including their spirituality, treatment can range from months to a year or beyond. While patients learn the philosophy behind transpersonal therapy during treatment, they can also practice its principles throughout life after therapy sessions have ended.

Is transpersonal therapy effective?

Patients have found success with transpersonal therapy; this method is useful in improving anxiety, depression, self-esteem, identity, fears, relationship problems, and other concerns. Improvements in problem areas can continue even after transpersonal therapy ends, as individuals can utilize the tools they’ve learned during treatment sessions.

What are the limitations of transpersonal therapy?

There is some research on the effectiveness of transpersonal therapy, but empirical support for this therapy approach is sparse. It does not have the robust evidence base of other forms of therapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy or acceptance and commitment therapy.
