About Me

“It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it.” -Lou Holtz
You’ve carried the load long enough, now you’ve made the decision to be proactive. There is strength in knowing when to take control to pursue a better outcome, and I would like to be a part of that empowering process! I am excited to meet you and look forward to the therapeutic rapport we will build throughout your journey.
My name is Adrienne Parker and I’ve worked in the field of mental health for over 8yrs providing individual, group, and family therapy in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I’ve always been fascinated with studying and interpreting behavior and knew as a child that I wanted to study the mind. I studied Clinical Mental Health at Chicago State University and graduated with my Masters in 2012. I gained valuable experience working in Hospital Emergency Depts (Crisis Team), Psychiatric Hospitals, Residential Treatment Centers, Private offices, Group Homes, and in the Community. I moved to Houston Texas 5yrs ago where I still serve the mental health needs of clients in a community setting. I am comfortable and fully qualified to work with all ages and phases of life.
My therapeutic approach is honest, direct, and effective. My clinical approach is client centered, goal oriented, and solution focused including: Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychotherapy, Brief Therapy, Imago Relationship Therapy, Art Therapy, and Nurturing Parent. I have provided treatment for such diagnoses as: Depression, Anger Management, Youth Substance Abuse, Anxiety, Mood Disorders, Stress Reduction, Family Conflict, ADHD, and Adjustment Disorder to name a few.

“Every good therapist has a personal goal, and that is to build self-sufficiency in their client. I know that goal has been achieved when I am no longer needed. That is a goal I am dedicated to reach every time.” -A. Parker

Adrienne is amazing! She is attentive, intuitive and very knowledgeable. In addition, Adrienne has a way of drawing out what is necessary for healing in a gentle way. I can see that she not only strong but also gentle in her delivery. Thanks to the amazing experience with Adrienne, I have already referred a friend to Regain.us.
