Alexia Cabreras

Practicum Student: University of Houston Clear Lake

Seeking therapy might not always be easy, but it can be life-changing when navigating hardships with the proper support. My goal is to provide that support when most necessary and continue doing so until each client has met their desired daily life goals.

I enjoy incorporating a range of therapeutic approaches in my practice, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy, to best fit every individual’s needs.

I am passionate about helping those who have or are currently experiencing trauma and need help navigating through specific thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to facilitate the changes they wish to implement into their lives. I enjoy working with a broad spectrum of depression, anxiety, ADHD / ADD, and adjustment disorders. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, families, and adults facing different hardships, whether short or long-term challenges.

I am currently a graduate student at The University of Houston – Clear Lake, working on my Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am fluent in Spanish, an active crisis text line volunteer, and a Texas Counseling Association student member. I have previously worked in school settings and completed an internship at an addictions outpatient treatment center. I am genuinely looking forward to helping heal the mental and emotional problems that some may be facing.

The mental health field is growing and slowly getting the recognition it deserves. Our minds are our foundation and the root of every aspect of our lives.

Alexia has been an excellent resource for me as I navigate life after the sudden loss of my mother. She helps me talk through my struggles and gives me small, attainable tasks to help me work through my grief. She is happy, encouraging, and a great listener. I always look forward to our appointments!

I’m *S.W*, and I began therapy with Alexia a little over a month ago. She has created a safe environment during all of our sessions in which I feel comfortable sharing my feelings, thoughts, etc. She is always attentive, which is crucial for establishing a supportive space. It is difficult for me to open up to new people, but she has been incredibly understanding of that, and I have never felt uncomfortable or pressured. I appreciate how she allows me to express myself however I choose. Although it’s minor, I also enjoyed her asking my pronouns. I look forward to continuing our sessions!
