Yaschia Kinsey, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

About Me:

My name is Yaschia ( Ya-she-ca) Kinsey.  I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor ( LPC) with over 13 years of experience in the mental health field. I’m originally from Upstate New York and recently relocated to Texas.  I graduated from the State University of New York at Buffalo with my Masters of Science Degree in Mental Health Counseling in 2008. I’ve worked in a variety of settings including inpatient, outpatient, schools and private practice. I particularly enjoy working with adults ages 18 plus, couples and families.  I love helping people achieve their goals and live up to their maximum potential.

My Approach to Therapy:

My approach to therapy is simple. I meet the client’s where they are. I listen to their concerns and assist them with developing an individualized treatment plan that best suits their needs.  I use a variety of evidence based treatment modalities to help my clients achieve their desired goals including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Brief Solution Focused Therapy ( BSFT) and Motivational Interviewing Techniques ( MIT).  When a client works with me, they can expect a warm, safe, non-judgmental environment where they are heard and seen. I am passionate about building a positive therapeutic relationship with all of my clients. I understand that therapy can be uncomfortable and challenging at times, however my goal is to provide a safe and supportive space where you feel comfortable to be your true authentic self.
