"every problem has a solution"



Today you are one step closer to experiencing a dynamic life where you feel both educated and empowered, and on a positive path to growth and wellbeing.

We want to help you on your path, whatever it is. Every problem has a solution!

As a solution-focused therapist, our goal at Coastal Bend Psychological Associates is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

As a cognitive-behavioral therapist, we will teach you the interplay between thoughts, feelings, and actions/behavior. We will help you to make a change in one area, thereby evoking changes in the other areas.

From a family systems perspective, we all operate with specific roles. A change in one member of a family's role will inevitably result in changes in the roles/behaviors of others within the system/family.
