About Me

Manuel Santarriaga, LPC

I have been passionate about helping others since I was very young, and fifteen years ago, I discovered that I wanted to do more to help people. Because of this, I acquired a Masters of Education degree in Counseling from Sul Ross State University in 2013, and became a Licensed Professional Counselor.  I have been in the helping profession for more than 11 years, and I have worked in different settings including a psychiatric hospital, a substance use agency, and different mental health outpatient clinics where I have obtained years of varied experience helping individuals and families.

My experience encompasses helping people living with mental health issues such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression and anxiety among others.  My training includes, but is not limited to, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Parent Child Interactive Therapy, Prolonged Exposure Therapy, Group Crisis Intervention, Motivational Interviewing, and Trauma Informed practices. 

 

Extensive training has provided me with the tools to assist people in healing trauma, which has been the heart of my work.

I believe that the therapeutic relationship between clients and therapists plays a central role in healing, and the sessions I conduct focus on empathy, kindness and attentive listening centering on your experiences. I work to create an environment in which you can feel safe. 

One can be kind to family, friends and even strangers, and I believe that each person is a valuable human being that deserves to be treated with kindness; this includes self-kindness. I hope to be the person to guide you in your journey to heal.

I am also able to provide services in English or Spanish.
