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!
