Best Houston Therapist

Mikaela Cloyd, LPC – Therapist in Houston

Anxiety, Suicide Ideation, Self-Harm Behaviors, Depression, Substance Use, Family Difficulties, Life Transitions
Works with: Adolescents, Adults & Families

One of my core beliefs is that everyone has the right to feel heard, respected, and
validated. Therefore, I offer a comforting, safe, and non-judgmental approach to
therapy. I understand that the experiences and needs of the client are unique, and I work to
create an individualized treatment plan that addresses their specific concerns. I believe
that you are the expert on your own life, and my job is to help you navigate your journey
towards achieving your goals and living a fulfilling life.

I am highly skilled in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), which is an evidence-based
approach that helps clients develop coping strategies to deal with challenging emotions
and situations. My clinical areas of expertise include working with clients dealing with
depression, anxiety, substance use, suicidal ideation, self-harm behaviors, family
difficulties, and life transitions.

My particular area of focus lies in working with adolescents, adults, and families who
are looking to create functional and meaningful lives for themselves. I understand that
navigating the challenges of life can be daunting, but with the right guidance and support, it
is possible to overcome even the most difficult obstacles.

After graduating from Stephen F. Austin State University with a Bachelor's degree in
Psychology, I continued to pursue my passion for helping others by earning a Master's
degree in Clinical/Counseling Psychology from Midwestern State University.
Throughout my academic journey, I have been exposed to various approaches to
therapy, and my years of practical experience have equipped me with the skills and
knowledge needed to work effectively with people from all walks of life.
