Helping Adults and Children Heal from Trauma and Feel Free from Anxiety
Trauma and Anxiety Counseling in San Antonio and surrounding areas for Children, Teens, Adults and Couples.
Our Counseling Approach
Welcome to La Luz Counseling! We treat folks who have gone through trauma and are having a hard time controlling their anxiety. While our office is in San Antonio, Texas, we offer virtual counseling sessions to anyone living in Texas. By the time you’ve found us on this page, you’re looking for a counselor, and you need one now. We offer same-week initial appointment times with options for evenings and weekends too. There is no need to wait.
We will set you up with the right counselor, the first time. When you call us, our admin team will ask what’s bringing you to counseling at this time. She then finds a counselor from our team that has the best training for your situation. It’s not a one size fits all approach here and each counselor has her own set of unique skills and experience. Read more about that here: La Luz Counseling Team.
Counseling requires a plan of how to be better going forward. We must know two things: where you are now and where you came from. Maybe you’ve felt like you’ve done all you can to change how you feel and are scared things will always be this way- exhausting, stressful, worrisome, and unfulfilled. We will help you confront the tough stuff in your life. We build on strengths, find stuck points, and focus on changing you, not your situation. We work with people of all ages and specialize in treating trauma and anxiety and help them to get unstuck.
Most of our counselors use a cognitive lens with counseling, which is just a fancy way of saying we focus on changing your anxious and depressed thoughts rather than your situation. Our counselors use approaches like cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy and internal family systems therapy. While most of what we do in counseling is talk, your counselor has been trained to use certain strategies and questions to get you thinking of yourself and your situation differently. Because after all, you can only control 3 things: your thoughts, your emotions and your actions.

At La Luz Counseling we understand that when you need help, you need it now, not just during traditional business hours. Please note: We do NOT accept insurance (find out why we don’t HERE).
