Debbie Gonzalez

(MA, LPC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor licensed in Texas with experience working survivors of abuse, youth in juvenile facilities and people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. With this experience, I have worked with individuals with a wide range of issues such as trauma, anxiety, depression, family conflict, family violence and stress. Teens can experience a wide range of issues that they feel others may not understand. My experience working with teens can help you feel heard, empowered and motivated by giving you a voice to create the change you are searching for.

My counseling style is warm, empathic and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines DBT, solution-focused and client centered counseling. We will work together to create a treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Written by V.A. on Jul 15, 2021 after counseling with Debbie for 2 weeks

Before the first appointment, Debbie communicated with me about any- and everything I wanted to know, while still respecting my teenager's privacy - which made me feel incredibly confident in trusting Debbie. After the first appointment, my teenager decided to share something from their session with me, and it left no room for doubt that Debbie is good at what she does. I am so happy to have my kid working with Debbie!
