Licensed Professional Counselor Associate

Supervised by Dr. Rev. Jerry Terrill, DSM, LPC-S 



Angelica Rivera is an LPC-Associate that is one her way to getting a doctorate in Professional Counseling and specializing in Trauma, Grief and Loss. She went to Houston Baptist University for her Bachelors where she majored in Psychology and Christianity. Then went to the Houston Graduate School of Theology where she was trained to work with spiritual and nonspiritual populations as well as individuals and families. Now she is currently in pursuit of her Doctorate at HGST as well.

She is multiculturally trained, trauma-informed, and works with spiritual and nonspiritual populations. She works with children, individuals, couples and families. Her specialties are trauma, grief, loss, identity, anxiety and depression.

Her approach to therapy is Person-Centered and Solution-Focused. With knowledgeable support and affirming companionship we can do anything. She validates the client as the expert of their reality and creates an environment where the client is the teacher of their lives. Treatment plans are collaborative and without shaming. With a listening ear, curiosity and unconditional positive regard we can explore the root causes of issues together.

In her free time she enjoys reading philosophy, watching comedies, playing the piano, running, enjoying her two cats, and drinking a nice cup of coffee


My three values as a therapist are (1) EMPOWERMENT - I want to give the client the tools to find confidence to face their issues outside of our sessions, (2) NONJUDGMENTAL LISTENING - I am not listening to evaluate, but listening with curiosity, and (3) affirming CLIENT EXPERTISE - I am never going to tell you how your think or experience reality is wrong/right; I want you to teach me what experiences are like for you because I'm never going to assume your reality.
