Licensed Professional Counselor
Hello, my name is Susan Avila. I hold a Master's Degree in School Counseling and Mental Health Counseling from the University of St. Thomas. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have worked in the Houston education system for 19 years. In my fourteen years of working with middle school children, the last eight as a middle school counselor, I have a wealth of experience in supporting adolescents in working through their challenges and helping their families navigate the adventure in this developmental stage of life.
I am very passionate about guiding young people as well as adults in creating meaningful goals and explore the answers they hold within themselves to overcome the challenges they may be facing. I take pride in building strong, trusting, long-lasting positive rapport with my clients.
Life has many ups and downs, as your therapist, I seek to decipher any challenges life throws at you. I am a compassionate listener who will help you find a positive pathway to adjust and cope with these challenges. I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental zone and create a comfortable, positive environment where humor is incorporated while keeping it real. Life is stressful on its own, talking about your issues shouldn't be.
Everyone wants to know that there is someone willing to listen to their struggles, that they matter and that they are heard. What you have to say matters and provide you with the support that is needed to overcome any adversities you may be facing.
