As a Marriage & Family Therapist in the state of Texas I have worked with individuals, romantic partnerships, families, and groups that have experienced family conflict, domestic violence, sexual assault, addiction issues, grief and loss, anxiety, and depression. I also have a strong background working with concerns about self-esteem, career and education, sexual identity, gender identity, and faith/spirituality.
As a professional helper I assist people in understanding more about their needs, their partner's needs, and routes that they may take to reach a healthier space. Kindness, compassion, and patience are key to my work with you and your partner(s). On your therapy journey you, and your partner(s), will learn many new things about yourself and your partner(s). It is also my responsibility to help all participants develop healthier ways of coping and to assist all in exploring individual and relationship strengths .
The work of therapy can be challenging for many reasons and requires you to be open and honest during the process. One of the first steps on this journey is for us to develop a trusting alliance. My task is to be non-judgmental, open-minded, committed, and an active listener. I do not expect you, or your partner(s) to share everything immediately; I will be patient as all involved develop a comfort with the partnership and will respect limits you, or your partner(s), express during this journey. Please note that my style blends listening with education and action. This style may not be a good fit for all clients.
If you and your partner(s) feel ready to share some of your story, I am ready to listen and will do what I can to assist you.
Side notes: If you are requesting therapy services for the first time please be aware that I am not online 24/7, yet I will do my best to respond efficiently. In other words, I ask that you be patient as you wait for my response to your request for therapy. We may be in different time zones as well. If you are having difficulty connecting to the therapy experience please let me know before exiting therapy. Sometimes a small miscommunication may be the issue, and it can be worked through.

Kind and compassionate counselor. I appreciated his advice and alternate options. The pace felt slow, but I understand the need for patience, addressing basic issues before digging deeper.
Victor has been an amazing counselor. He is experienced and has great methods to tackle issues.
