Carla Calderas

Mental Health Therapist

Hi! My name is Carla and I want to thank you for reaching out to us and taking the time to learn about me. I am a mental health therapist who finds joy in seeing others grow and overcome challenges. I see the good in others and love to help people who seek my counseling services. I am fluent in Spanish and consider myself bicultural. I enjoy being involved in the community and making a difference. I have a passion for  assisting and empowering others. I enjoy providing therapy services to preteens, teens, and young adults.

I believe in constant growth and learning from past experiences. I have lived in Texas, California, Mexico, and North Carolina and my experiences there made me realize the importance of respecting and appreciating diversity. I take pleasure in attending conferences and workshops because I want to provide the best therapy I can and learn new strategies and techniques in counseling. The counseling theories that resonate with me are Existential Theory, Reality Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. 

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Education from the University of North Carolina Charlotte. I had the pleasure to teach elementary school  students in Charlotte, NC and Austin, TX.  While I was teaching, I attended Texas State University to earn a master’s degree in Professional Counseling. I enjoyed working with students, parents, and the community in Round Rock, Texas, where I was employed as a School Counselor. After moving to the Houston area, I worked as a Clinical Therapist at a Psychiatric Outpatient Hospital and later at a counseling private practice as a mental health therapist. I now own and operate Calderas Counseling.
