Hi there! My name is Anisleidys, but I go by Annie. Life can be complicated at times and often requires someone to walk beside us on this journey. I work to provide a compassionate and safe environment as you work through life’s challenges. My goal is to provide an atmosphere of safety to navigate and gain freedom from whatever is hindering you from living the life that God designed. I believe in meeting a client exactly where they are and desire to offer clients guidance and hope in order to help them adjust to life and the many changes that accompany it. I desire to create a place for those in need of a listening ear and establish genuine connection and support for my clients. I believe it is in our very brokenness that God intends to create something new, something more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. My multi-cultural upbringing, and my ability to speak Spanish and English fluently, has been helpful for me to understand a variety of perspectives that people bring into the counseling office.
I am a Christian. This has changed my worldview and perspective about the meaning of life. However, I respect the beliefs of those around me, and I’m sensitive to your values and ideas. I will walk with you and meet you where you are in life.
I have a heart for children, teenagers, couples, and families. I have experience counseling clients through many struggles such as past traumatic experiences, depression, and anxiety. Additionally, I thoroughly enjoy helping people navigate marriage and relationship difficulties. I also have experience working with parents wanting to build stronger relationships with their children and women walking through the different stages of life.
I am honored to be working as a counselor, a profession I really love!
I have a Master of Arts in Christian Counseling from Houston Baptist University. I have a Bachelor of Science with a major in Psychology and a minor in Spanish from the University of Houston-Downtown.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC). I am trained in Play Therapy working with children. I am also trained using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) working with trauma. I am trained in Gottman Couples Therapy, a model for increasing marital satisfaction and understanding the impediments of getting there. I am also trained in SYMBIS (Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts), which is a very thorough premarital training model that has much success.
I have lived in Houston since 2002. I am happily married since 2015. We have 2 dogs, a Poodle and a Shih Tzu. I love reading, spending time with family, and serving God at my local church.
