Carolina Romero, LPC Associate
Iam a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate in the state of Texas, where I have lived for almost 16 years. I was born and raised in the beautiful country of Venezuela, where I watched my mother pursue her own career in counseling. I have known from a young age that my purpose in this life was to serve others. This calling along with my general passion and curiosity for people led me to pursue an undergraduate degree in Psychology from St. Edward’s University before obtaining my Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Houston-Victoria.
At Destination Therapy, I offer individual therapy and couples counseling both in person and online to best fit my client’s needs. I provide services in both English and Spanish to my clients.
My goal is to support individuals and couples who are struggling with feeling stuck in some aspect of their lives. I have worked with individuals who have struggled with depression, anxiety, interpersonal relationships, boundaries and self-esteem. I also have experience with couples who are interested in improving their relationship as a whole.
As a Latina therapist, I am committed to highlighting the beauty of our culture while dismantling and destigmatizing long-standing beliefs surrounding mental health and seeking professional support. This commitment does not end with the Latine community – it spans through my work with individuals/couples who come from different backgrounds and identities as well.
My approach as a therapist is to meet my clients where they are and walk alongside them with empathy and curiosity. I value and honor the power of human connection and a genuine therapeutic relationship, which means that I will be my authentic self through our work together and will ensure that I create a space where you can feel comfortable bringing your authentic self as well.
Si tener terapia en español es importante para ti, es algo que puedo ofrecer tanto en terapia individual como de pareja. Mi objetivo es que te sientas con las confianza de poder expresarte en el idioma que te sea más fácil.
En Destination Therapy nos enfocamos en brindar una atención personalizada e inclusive. Tanto mi equipo como yo somos receptivos a la herencia cultural y me hace muy feliz poder ofrecer servicios de terapia en español para quienes lo prefieran.
A little more about me.
My approach to therapy will always depend on my client’s needs. Looking at a person through a holistic lens and exploring a client’s worldview allows me to gain insight into what my client may need at the moment.
For some clients, it could be learning coping skills through DBT, challenging thoughts through CBT, or bridging the gap between thinking and feeling through ACT. What you can always expect is that I will approach therapy through a person-centered, humanistic approach.
