Meet the Team
We are all star-throwers here.
Helping people and our community is what gets us excited.
Each person is different,
and brings different joys and challenges to our job.
And in turn, we each have different strengths and insight to share.
Are you having issues with your relationship? Or need therapy that is responsive to your specific situation and family? Do you feel that life is just not going as smoothly as you need it to, because your situation is not “mainstream”?
Do you need guidance to help you get through depression, anger, doubt, or anxiety? Do you deal with self-esteem, relationship, sexual issues, or a feeling of isolation stemming from feeling separated from larger society? Are you asking if your feeling or situation is "normal"?
If you can relate to these questions, I can help.
James Retarides is a licensed professional counselor (LIC# 10884) and national certified counselor with experience in journalism, personal training and coaching. As a therapist, he takes a social cognitive approach to helping clients develop self-efficacy and assertiveness skills.
Suzie graduated with a BA majoring in Political Science and with a minor in History at the University of Houston in 1996. After completing her Masters in Professional Counseling at Liberty University, she held an internship position at Transitional Counseling Center working with the sex offenders population along with conducting groups at Riverside Hospital working with schizophrenia clients.
She is the one who makes things happen in the background.
Jessica is who you will most likely meet first and who you will talk to when you first contact us.
She handles most of our phone calls, emails, and also sets up client schedules. Then she calls and makes sure your insurance does what it should, and records that information for the therapists.
