Hi everyone, my name is Melita Torres and I would like to take a moment to introduce myself. I have been married for 10 wonderful years. I have a bachelor’s degree in Rehabilitation counseling with a concentration in addiction studies. I have obtained my master’s degree in Rehabilitation Counseling. In addition, I have a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Texas. I also have a Chemical Dependency License (LCDC) in Texas. I have over 7 years of experience in various settings and I have worked with clients of all ages. I have several certification specialties. I enjoy working with individuals who are struggling with various life issues. I hope to assist my clients in building a life worth living that is unique to them and their preferences. I have years of experience working with couples and families and I enjoy working with them.
I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is supportive and understanding. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
My therapeutic style involves helping you to arrive at insight, strategies, and tools that you can begin using immediately to make positive change in your life. We don’t just sit and talk. I love to provide you with concrete tools wherever possible and help you to have a plan for the following days before our next session, if that is the pace you would like to move at. Most importantly, we are going to make sure we are making progress on goals that you have for yourself. I will be there to guide you, encourage you, possibly even challenge you if I feel you are unknowingly allowing obstacles to stand in your way.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

My husband and I absolutely love Melita Torres! She's been so supportive with all of our concerns. She's taught us a lot of valuable information in the time we've been seeing her. She's almost always available and is more than willing to work with our schedule despite how much it's been changing lately. I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone seeking a supportive, caring, friendly counselor!
I love her counseling and she's awesome.
