Michael Garcia

5 years of experience

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Tarleton State University. I specialize in the treatment of trauma in children, adolescents, and adults. I am trained in EMDR, TFCBT, and TBRI Practitioner counseling modalities. I have over 15 years of experience working in the juvenile justice system, education system, in-patient treatment, crisis response, and with victims of crime. I believe that recovery is possible through healthy expression, deep relational connection, and the processing of traumatic events.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

I provide a safe therapeutic environment built on trust and empowerment that enables clients to share their narrative and experiences. Each session will be an exploration into the thoughts and emotions that drive behaviors. Additionally, I will help clients connect their trauma and toxic stress of the past to present day functioning. Client's can expect to gain insight to their cognitions, in addition to the tools necessary to overcome present and future challenges.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I am trauma informed therapist, meaning that I believe our histories and experiences affect our ability to cope with stress, challenges, and triggers in the present. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Focused Behavioral Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Therapy modalities. I am also a Trust Based Relational Intervention Practitioner.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My biggest strength is building connection, trust, and a safe environment for clients. I believe that recovery from trauma is not only possible, but likely when we are given a safe space to share our story. I honor the personal stories of my clients and recognize the uniqueness and beauty of every journey. I want to help clients see the beauty in their story and learn to positively cope with the troubling chapters.
