Hello, my name is Malia Nompone, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas. I have experience counseling in a variety of settings, including outpatient mental health (child/adolescent team), a residential facility for teen girls, public education, and private practice. I have extensive experience teaching at the college/university level and in special education through the public school system. I currently serve as a therapist and behavioral specialist to students in a public school district, where I serve students age 4 through 22. My areas of specialization and interest include the challenges of teen/young adult life, parent/child relationships, parent training, play therapy, career guidance, issues facing special needs youth, spiritual growth, and relational conflicts. I am certified in CPI Non-Violent Crisis Intervention and also a certified NOVA Crisis Responder.
My approach with clients is positive and relational. I seek to empower my clients to find and use their strengths as we work together to accomplish goals. Although many teens are motivated to work with a counselor, I have counseled many who are reluctant about the process, find it difficult to trust, or are not sure that anyone can help them. I am aware of the courage that it takes to reach out to others, and do not take that effort lightly. I will work to earn the respect and trust of my teen clients and create a safe place for growth. I incorporate a variety of therapeutic modalities, including but not limited to: emotionally-focused therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and solution-focused therapy. When working with teens, I believe that it is often helpful to involve parents, as much as is desired by both parties. I enjoy helping families communicate and improve their relationships with one another.

Malia is such a warm, attentive person. Her calm demeanor allowed me to feel comfortable opening up to her from the very beginning. Opening up about your struggles can be very challenging, and it's so important to feel comfortable, heard, and understood when communicating. I feel like I have these things when speaking to Malia. She uses her professional and personal experience to relate to me and guide our sessions. She is always coming up with great exercises that help me to further explore how to better understand and improve upon my experience and situations. I look forward to continuing my journey with Malia, and highly recommend her as a Counselor.
Malia’s wonderful, adaptable, and more important than anything she is truly a support for my daughter.
I’ve only been with Malia for a few weeks now but she has been great at understanding and helping me work through my issues. I am looking forward to continue working with her.
Malia Nompone is very helpful and resourceful. She has deep concern for her patients and wants the best for them.
Malia presents biblical counseling at its finest. A lovely vessel of Christ and never hesitated to pray for the situation or me when lead to do so. She has a wonderful ability to weave God’s love into the counseling sessions showing God’s love through His word and God’s promises. Refreshing to be able to receive online counseling As it has been an easy, refreshing and non stressful experience with positive outcomes.
Malia is amazing. Completely and utterly sweet and attentive. I have never felt more cared about by a counselor in my life. Discussing my problems is easy and solving them is getting easier with her around. I cannot explain how amazing she is.
