About Us

Johanna Torres, MS, LPC-Supervisor

Owner & Clinical Director

Hi! I'm so glad you're here. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor that specializes in anxiety, trauma, and women’s issues, specifically attachment and relationship issues.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from St. Edward’s University in Austin, TX and a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in Neuropsychology from The University of Texas at Tyler in Tyler, Texas. I have specialized training in LGBTQ+ affirming therapy, trauma therapy, and Chicanx/Latinx affirming therapy. I am also an EMDR-trained clinician.

I primarily work with high-achieving women and Latinx folx. My areas of specialty include:

  • Anxiety
  • Attachment trauma
  • Codependency
  • Childhood trauma
  • Love addiction
  • Parenting issues
  • Perfectionism
  • Sexual trauma
  • Strained relationships with family
  • Toxic relationships

Interpersonally, I am a health enthusiast, a dog- and cat-lover and a frequent beach-day initiator. I love running, reading, yoga, playing in the ocean, and spending quality time with my pets. I believe in the importance of a balanced life and maintain equilibrium by eating Blue Bell Ice Cream and binge-watching my favorite show over and over again.

Hi there! My name is Paige Gonzalez. I am currently a graduate student at Texas A&M – Corpus Christi. I am working towards obtaining a master’s degree in Clinical Psychology to become a Licensed Psychological Associate (LPA). I have a passion for advocacy and provide trauma-informed and person-centered counseling.
