DesaRay Torres, LMSW

Hi, my name is DesaRay. I received my Bachelors of Social Work from Angelo State University and my Masters of Social Work from the University of Texas San Antonio. I have experience working with individuals navigating different areas of life, including experience of medical social work, inpatient and outpatient psychiatric settings, substance abuse treatment, and chronic pain. I specialize in trauma and grief counseling, and also am skilled in supporting individuals with depression, anxiety, crisis, body image-issues, low self-esteem, anger, behavioral concerns, and support with issues related to the LGBTQ+ population by utilizing EMDR, Play Therapy, and Internal Family Systems therapies.

How Can I Help

As a therapist with trauma-informed and person-centered approach, I am commited to validating the experiences of the individual child and supporting the autonomy of the child so they can learn to work with others in a healthy manner. I embrace a holistic approach and look at each person as a part of their environment, integrating parents and systems in order to work together as a collaborative team for their child. This, in turn, helps to create positive family dynamics. Each child and family unit is an individual, so I am sure to tailor their individual treatment to specific, personal needs. I utilize evidence-based modalities to ensure your child receives the best care.

More about Me

I grew up in a family of educators, who had a passion for people and music. I had the same passions instilled in me, but enjoy them differently these days, as I mostly listen to an eclectic selection of music enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Some of my favorite leisure activities include taking my dogs to the dog park, reading, superhero and action movies and series, and baking.
