The Licensed Counselors at Room for Change have been hand selected by the practice owner, Amanda, to best serve the needs of the Garland community. In the state of Texas, Licensed Professional Counselors, Licensed Marriage and Family Counselors, and Licensed Social Workers are required to complete an 3,000 hour internship beyond their masters degrees. Although not seen as experienced as “doctors”, these licensed professionals have spent a considerable amount of time honing their skills in order to best serve clients like you.
We want the clients we serve to know that we are regular people, sure we are experts in mental health, but we are people first. We have our own pains, limitations, and flaws. These things allow us to be with people, without judgement, because we are doing this thing called life as well.
We may be experts in the general stuff, but we rely on YOU to be experts in what your needs, preferences, and goals are. Most people need a little confidence boost in identifying these things and our compassionate team will do just that for you. “I don’t know what I want.” is often a cover for “I’m too scared to ask for what I want/need.” We know what that fear is like and often where it comes from. We will assist you in navigating those dark areas and ridding yourself of fear as an obstacle. Once the fear is out of the way, your newfound expertise in yourself (paired with our expertise in healthy minds and relationships) will get you to the life you want. The life you deserve.
As mentioned on the Meet Our Team page, please take some time while looking through the counselor profiles. Ask yourself what you need to feel comfortable and confident in a counselor as well as some of the other suggestions on this page
