Professional statement

Sara Pesic is a Licensed Professional Counselor in states of Texas and Louisiana, and a Board Certified Counselor. She has training and experience working with a wide array of clients varying in race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, and ability. She works with couple and family systems as well as with adolescents and adults coping with trauma and other crisis situations, self-esteem issues, interpersonal issues, stress and anger management, mood disorders, eating disorders, work related issues, and athletic performance. Sara focuses on creating a safe and trusting relationship where client will feel safe to explore important topics.

Sara views the counseling relationship as one built on trust, where teamwork is a must. She looks at six fundamental drives (needs) within each person that compel their behavior in a quest to experience a life of meaning. While she typically uses Robbins-Madanes training concepts that have been repeatedly proven to work and make a difference where other methods have fallen short, she chooses techniques that fit each client’s beliefs and needs individually, and will be the most beneficial to them. Some but not all are Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Anthetic Therapy, Gottman Couples Therapy, Trauma Informed Therapy, Mindfulness and Attachment Based Therapy, and Coaching.


Message to clients

I see counseling as a process in which you, the client, and I, the Counselor, collaborate in exploring, defining, and improving current situations which cause distress or hinder you from living a full and healthy life. We will work as a team to systematically develop plans for and realize future goals, and I will offer support as you continue toward greater empowerment and wellness.

I focus on your strengths. I believe that every client has an ability to succeed when the right resources and support are available. I look at the human behavior through 6 basic human needs (universal forces that are driving and shaping our emotions and actions) that allow you to understand your behavior, and then design a plan of action.

We will be working as a team so I will encourage and welcome any feedback regarding our professional relationship and counseling process. Let's talk!
