Greetings! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas with years of experience counseling in the mental health field since 2015. I graduated with a master’s degree in clinical psychology from Sam Houston State University. I have counseled students in a university setting, patients in a psychiatric hospital setting, and individually in private practice. I've done extensive work with adolescents in an inpatient hospital setting, helping teens and family cope with many different types of problems.
My approach to therapy ultimately beings with warm and non-judgmental support, no matter the problem. I seek to empower clients to make their own decisions and move towards valued-based living. Behind my approach is a cutting-edge protocol in cognitive behavioral therapy called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). My desire is to find the underlying processes that might be contributing to suffering and individualize treatment, using evidence-based methods, while also making sure your child or teen feels truly heard.
Choosing the counselor that fits your child's needs is crucial to their success. The counseling field has known for a long time now that the most reliable predictor of success in therapy is the therapeutic relationship itself. Make sure you feel good about your counselor—that you trust and respect them to interact well with your child. You’re not alone. Support them well and we can help.

I've worked with Justin for some time now and I feel he has helped me to work through some major milestones and changes in my life. I always feel supported during our sessions and I carry the lessons gained throughout my days.
Justin is very knowledgeable, caring, and interactive. He asks questions that really makes you think and he listens. He guides the conversation in a way that benefits you and helps you better understand yourself and your situations.
He’s a perfect fit for me. I feel grateful to have linked up with him. He’s helping me change my life.
Justin has helped me recognize the deeper issues I have been struggling with and learning new ways to overcome them.
Wow. This is the therapy I have been wanting for. I’m so thankful I found Justin to help me along. He really cares and is very interested in helping me.
I am really lucky to have Justin as my therapist. I write to him so much about my everyday life in solitude, and dating problems, family problems and traumas, and he goes through all the messages and really helps me even with the replies. And after every video session, I feel quite relieved and see progress and how I am slowly becoming a stronger and wiser human being, who doesn’t need to repress as much family pain anymore. Because there is someone who knows what he’s doing to help me deal with the problems we all have sometimes. And Justin helps me to motivate me to work towards my life goals. Personal, and career wise. After almost 5 years of swirling in nothingness, like a fly without a head, I finally feel like there is lots to achieve and with baby steps, will be achieved with less stress. Thank you, Justin!
Before coming into therapy, I was super scared to talk with a new person, share and open up to them. When I started my first therapy session with Mr. Justin Salcedo everything changed. He is incredibly caring, supportive, creative, and listens to you without any judgment. He sees and decyphers every complicated situation there is. He is the one and the only person that I open up to while feeling safe, feeling that he cares and tries his very best to help me. I am proud to have you, Mr. Salcedo, thank you for giving your all to help me, I really appreciate you
It was evident only after one session how valuable Justin was for me. I was able to immediately get in better spirits, open up like i've never done so before, and feel a level of comfort that made counseling not feel so scary or overwhelming. Justin has a calming tone, presence and it helps put your mind at ease. I would 10/10 recommend him to anyone and everyone I know!
After having gone though a few therapists in person and on here on teen counseling, I can say that Justin is the one that I've clicked with best & have had the most results with. I feel genuinely heard, and understood, not brushed off or only half heard. I tend to go on long tangents, but he reads it all and listens carefully, offering me valuable insights and strategic exercises which challenge me and help me grow. He is clearly very skilled and knowledgeable. Just as importantly, he is markedly sympathetic and attentive. With a sense of humor.
Also - it's awesome to have someone that can type at a quick pace that keeps up with mine when we do live chats!
My child didn't respond well to the 1st Councillor she had and was assigned Justin while we looked through and decided who to go with (was looking at female councillors) but Justin was so helpful and my child was happy and responded really well to the techniques and care that was given.
Thank you so much Justin, your amazing, my child is in a much better place now.
We are sooooo grateful we found Justin and teen counseling! Justin was incredibly responsive, comforting, and professional. We have seen a counselor before, but don’t feel we got as much out of it as we did with Justin. He was very easy to talk to, patient, and provided multiple outlooks/materials/ideas for us to implement. We would recommend Justin to anyone!
I have been working with Justin for over a month now. He is a great counselor. He is very easy to talk to and understanding. He does a great job of keeping me accountable and nudging me forward through uncomfortable topics. I feel like he truly cares about me and my progress in life.
Great person great counselor. He listens well and is very patient. Shows empathy. Lucky to have him as my counselor
Justin has been a great counsellor and I really enjoyed my sessions with him. He is a great listener, non-judgmental, caring, and definitely tries his best to help as best he can, especially through mindfulness techniques, which is one of his expertise. I definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking to start the therapy process!
Justin has been absolutely phenomenal. He is a great listener and with that listening he provides very powerful insights. Since working with him, I feel better in my day to day activity. He is helping improve all aspects of my life from my mental well being to my physical well being. Justin is caring, compassion, and intelligent. I would strongly recommend him to anyone seeking counseling.
Justin listens to me in a way that other therapists haven't. He has poignant insights, recommendations he wants me to try, and helps me get pointed in the right direction to get better.
He is very skilled and experienced. Very professional.
Excellent for what my needs have been so far. Recommended for all!
Justin has been nothing but supportive and provided many tools for me to help with anxiety and assertiveness. I am very happy I went with him and plan on keeping him around!!
He is great professional :) helped me a lot, we found the way to help me:) I hope he could help you too :)
He understands and supports and he is super easy to talk to. Helped with negative thoughts, was always there to support me.
Very professional and polite counselor
