Hi! I am Mylene. I am a LPC-Associate. I am so happy you are here. If you are looking through these pages, it probably means you either have taken a big step and decided to look for help, or you are still considering if therapy is something really you "need". This is a very intimidating and scary moment. It takes a lot of courage and I am happy for you to be considering taking this step. I am here to tell you that I get it. It is not easy and I hope I can help you to feel safe and comfortable opening up to a therapist.

You might be feeling a little lost, struggling to maintain control of your ever-rotating list of tasks and responsibilities, and the stress you feel is spilling over into multiple areas of your life. You realize that you need a little help getting everything back in order. The overwehlming emotions you're feeling are impacting your personal relationships- you are struggling to create and keep emotional or physical intimacy; your patience is wearing thin leaving you feeling more easily agitated than you remember; you're having trouble holding healthy boundaries- and you know that a better version of yourself is possible.

I love working with women, parents, and educators juggling work-life demands, and adolescents/young-adults adjusting to adulthood. We each have a fundamental need for connection, autonomy, and belonging. Motivation and behavior are specific and variable. I listen, reflect, and ask questions. I translate the science of wellbeing into actionable practices to help clients connect their needs, values, and strengths with their actions and visions; to raise consciousness, cultivate emotional intelligence, explore limiting beliefs, master mindsets, build relational life skills, lean into their purposes; live, love, and lead with intention.

Welcome! My name is Ronda Allison. I am a Lamar University Alum from Houston, Texas. I have lived, loved and breathed the world of mental and physical health, and overall wellness for over 5 years. In my professional experience, the ultimate point of growth and healing from past traumas and management of current stressors is realizing the relationship between mind, body and spirit. Once we understand the co-mingling that must take place between those separate entities, we then open the door to the truest versions of ourselves.

A favorite saying of mine is "CHANGE... It's One of Life's Only Constants..." Change often signifies growth. Changes often move us from our comfort zone and may trigger stressful or distressing thoughts, behaviors, emotions or physiological responses. Our responses are often unconscious. Except we consciously recognize increased discomfort, pain or unproductive functioning in our daily roles and relationships. If you or a family member are experiencing any social, emotional, mental or behavioral difficulties causing distress & preventing enjoying life or realizing your or their full potential in personal, work or school functioning, I invite you to call me.

Sexually compulsive and addictive behaviors have been a common presenting problem. It can emerge in the form of pornography addiction, infidelity, hook up apps, and illegal behaviors.Clients seek me out, when there has been problematic sexual behavior either with an individual or in a relationship. Most behaviors of a sexual nature have caused damage to the individual, couple and families. Many people suffer from past trauma and the development of healthy sexual behaviors have been interrupted by abuse, both physical , sexual and emotional. Behaviors can become compulsive and eventually secretive and shameful for the person.
