Greetings! My name is Ruben Reyes and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) at Mind Works. I provide generalized counseling for kids as young as 6 and up to adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, parenting skills, and trauma. My theoretical experience is working with dialectical behavior therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, and more recently child centered behavior therapy. I received my education from Texas A&M University Kingsville with a Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorder and Masters of Science in Counseling and Guidance.
It’s normal to feel overwhelmed by common life stressors and needing a helping hand is an effective way to grow and learn how to overcome obstacles. I work with both clients and families in helping to sort out psychological factors leading you to feel distressed and hopeless. As a counselor, I provide both guidance and opportunities to explore ways in which you can regulate difficult emotions. It is my goal to help client’s learn to identify fears and negative beliefs holding them back and replacing them with positive beliefs that can help you continue to move forward. I will work towards helping you reach your full potential and live a happy and more productive life.
More About Me
In my free time, I enjoy hiking trails and exploring small Texas towns (…current goal-reaching the top of Machu Picchu). I also enjoy playing my guitar, fishing, delicious Texas barbecue, listening to podcasts, and projecting outdoor movies with family and my spunky dogs, Lola and Hercules aka Herci Monkey.
