Are you needing help navigating life while facing mental health challenges? If so, you have come to the right place! I am so excited that you have taken the steps to dive into therapy and invest in yourself.
I am Thalia Puente, a bilingual Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I earned my Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Houston in 2018. However, I have been working in the mental health field for more than 7 years. Throughout my time in the field, I have focused on working with teens and their families to strengthen their relationships and navigate mental health challenges. My approach to therapy is client-centered and strengths-based while incorporating principles of CBT and DBT. I always individualize treatment to the different needs of my clients and believe in being compassionate while challenging my clients to be the best version of themselves. I have worked in a variety of settings including residential treatment facilities, psychiatric hospitals, and universities, which have prepared me to work with clients suffering from a wide range of mental health problems and diagnosis. Some of my experience has been with treating individuals struggling with eating disorders, mood disorders, grief and loss, trauma, substance use, severe behavioral problems, suicidality, gender identity and/or sexual orientation, and neurodevelopmental disorders.
When you step into a session with me, you can expect to be in a non-judgmental place, where you are safe to be yourself and process any emotions or difficulties you may be experiencing. I collaborate with you to help develop greater self-awareness, build upon your existing coping strategies, and support you along your journey through life. As a social worker, I work with you in a holistic manner and consider all aspects of your life as we work together. My main focus is to create a strong therapeutic alliance with each of my clients as I firmly believe that the development of a nurturing and professional relationship is at the center of healing. I would love to work with you in creating a meaningful and fulfilling life, one that you truly enjoy and are happy with. If you are ready to step into the therapeutic process, please don’t hesitate to contact me for an appointment!
