From a young age, my passion has been simple: people. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I enjoy combining my passion and skill set to provide virtual therapeutic services to clients throughout Texas. Through my experiences in settings such as hospitals, community mental health, and non-profits, I have developed the tools necessary to meet clients where they are in their own, individual journeys and uncover their unique traits necessary to navigate individual circumstances. I am licensed in Texas with 3 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, intimacy related issues, anger management & motivation, self-esteem, and confidence. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.
Furthermore, I work with adolescents, adults, and groups. I believe rapport is vital to the therapeutic process and I strive to create an environment to provide this. I believe in helping people overcome life's struggles by focusing on each person's individual needs, and meeting people where they are at. I use a variety of specific therapeutic approaches, such as CBT, rational emotive therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, DBT, and art therapy techniques, with individuals on a multitude of issues, including, but not limited to, anxiety, depression, and behavioral problems.
However, as a Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional (CCATP) through Evergreen, I am particularly passionate about working with clients ages 14 and up that are coping with depression, anxiety, panic disorders, social anxiety, OCD, and phobias. I utilize a strengths-based, person-centered approach to help empower my clients to utilize their innate strengths. I hope to provide a safe space to navigate the mysteries and beauties of life.
I hope by gaining an understanding of the connection between your mind, body, and soul you can take the steps you feel are necessary for personal growth. If you feel I am a good fit to work alongside you in your courageous journey, I look forward to hearing from you.

In a few weeks Orlando has given me solid methods on how to tackle issues I’m going through as well as books that can guide me in the direction of the man that I want to be. Orlando is professional, courteous and reaches out to me a few times during the week just to check on me. His messages are always positive and uplifting. I am excited to see where my therapy can take me months from now. I would recommend Orlando to anyone!

I've been going through therapy with Orlando for about two weeks now & it amazes me how much he checks up out of the blue to see if I'm okay. Even in my 1st session with him, he made me feel very comfortable & was also super mature when it came down to explaining my issues to him. Green Flags!
