Alberta Torres LCSW
Graduated from the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work in 1992. Work experience includes two years in HIV/AIDS counseling, 1 year in Emergency Hospital clinical social work and crisis counseling, 14 years working with children and adults affected by trauma, including child sexual abuse and physical abuse.
My experience includes working with individuals, families and groups.
Creating a trusting and safe environment free of judgment is my first consideration. I use a psychodynamic approach and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy . A psychodynamic approach is useful in identifying the origins of patterns of thought/behavior in our lives that may be underlying challenges in our current life. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy assists us in understanding how our thoughts drive our feelings and actions. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy also provides useful tools for creating most positive outcomes in our lives. I work in a collaborative manner with clients and provide homework for a continuation of the work between sessions.
Enjoy being out in natural surroundings with a great book.
