I first became intrigued with counseling after my first few years of teaching in the Houston Independent School District. I realized that I was assisting students with their personal problems just as much as their academic problems. These experiences eventually grew into a strong passion for helping others talk through their mental health and challenges in life.
As my interest advanced, I decided to pursue my secondary degree in psychology.
Over the years, I saw that there was truly a growing need for counseling in society. This became my motivation to excel in this field.
While completing my degree in clinical psychology, I gained significant experience performing psychological assessments at Charis Psychological Associates. During my tenure at this establishment, I was provided the opportunity to assist clients with various challenges such as grief therapy, anger management, attention-deficiency disorder, anxiety, sexual abuse, and depression.
Administering psychological batteries was the missing element in my development as a professional therapist. It provided me with increased insight into my clients’ diagnoses, and it gave me a different perspective to evaluate when determining treatment plans.
After graduating from Walden University with a master's degree in clinical psychology with a specialization in counseling, I went on to pursue my Licensed Professional Counselor certification at Fountain Counseling and Developmental Services. This setting gave me an invaluable experience in providing care for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Cynecia Breaux seem wonderful and really connected with my daughter, which was not an easy task as my daughter was really against counseling. It’s too early to tell if it’s helpful in terms of resolving all of her issues, but the fact that she agrees to continue with counseling speaks values. I do wish my daughter snd her counselor would communicate more in between sessions, as sometimes Samantha is going through rough days but would never reach out herself first.
Cynecia allowed me to lead the conversation by listening to me carefully and without judgement, and by directly addressing each of my concerns with solutions. She is one of the most helpful counselors I've ever met.
