Paola Garcia, LMFT

Hi, I'm Paola. I'm an English and Spanish speaking Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist from Dallas, TX, where I grew up. I received my Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a concentration in Behavioral Neuroscience from St. Edward’s University. I received my Master of Science in Psychology with a certification in psychological services for Spanish Speaking Populations at Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio, Texas. I work from a solution-focused approach from which I was trained in but I also incorporate a lot mindfulness-based, client-centered and existential approaches. I have experience working with survivors of sexual abuse, children of divorce/separation, reunification counseling, women's issues, LGBTQ individuals, substance use/abuse concerns.

I hope to provide every client that I meet with an open, inviting, and calming space to explore and reflect within themselves how they would like to grow, release, expand, and share their experiences with me. I will tailor your shared experiences and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I look forward to working alongside you on your continuing journey through a reflection of self-awareness and inspired change.
