Hi there! I am so happy you came across my profile and are taking steps to take care of your mental health. I am very passionate about providing mental health services and breaking the stigma around taking care of mental health needs. My name is Andrea Kay and I have my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Texas at Tyler. I have been a counselor in Texas since 2016 and have worked in a variety of settings and with many different populations. I've counseled in crisis centers working with people in their lowest battles of depression, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. I've counseled kids, teens and families at a community counseling center to work on improving communication, setting healthy boundaries and creating healthy home environments. I've counseled teens and young adults through a range of life experiences from general anxiety, transitions, loss, depression and low self-esteem and I also enjoy working with anyone looking to work on general self growth regardless of having a specific area of concern.
My approach is to listen and understand your experiences and collaborate with you to set goals and work toward a more desirable situation. There are a lot of things that we can not control in our lives which is important to acknowledge, and there are also things we can control like our approach, outlook and perspective on our situations. Using an eclectic approach combining cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, narrative therapy and person centered techniques we will work together toward your goals and overall improvement in you mental health.
I hope to have the pleasure of meeting you and be well!

Andrea is excellent. She is thoughtful, humorous and insightful and easy to speak to. She is also very generous with her time.; a rarity in healthcare!
We have developed a great relationship over the last couple months. My daughter has been opening up emotionally was able to get the support she needed. Plus, she really enjoys her sessions. It has been a great experience and highly recommend her. She is fabulous!
Andrea listens well, is very easy to talk to and always has good things to say!
She is amazing. In our sessions we discuss issues and tie together so many things that I never thought of. The awareness is helpful and honestly talking with her is really helpful too. IT's nice to just go through things with someone and get input and help even if it seems mundane :)
Andrea has been so great for my 15 year olds anxiety and depression. She’s been attentive and active in her care. We couldn’t have asked for a better counselor!
I am 30 years old and started therapy at 15. I’ve been in various types of counseling off and on for half of my life. Andrea is hands down the best therapist I have ever had. Nonjudgmental, attentive, and fully accepting. There are no words to express my relief of being able to find someone I trust again.
Andrea is a warm, open hearted young woman who easily creates a sense of trust and emotional safety with her clients. She also radiates a sense of joy that is contagious and elicits hope in those who are dealing with dark times. She is both knowledgeable and has a natural gift for healing. I would recommend her to anyone.
Andrea has been so helpful. I was to the point of I needed to do something and now I have some hope that I can get out of this and live my life. She was very attentive and I felt comfortable talking to her, which I never do. She has so much compassion for my situation. She sent me links to help, made me look at things in a more positive way when all I thought was negativity. I’m so thankful to have had the sessions with her and I hope I can get more.
