Linda Torres, M.Ed.
Licensed Professional Counselor - Associate*
Hi! My name is Linda A. Torres, and I am a bilingual/bicultural counselor born and raised in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.
It is my pleasure to meet and assist you with your presenting concerns. My goal is to help you find mental health wellness and better understand your thought process by incorporating research data and evidence-based counseling techniques. The core foundation of my counseling techniques is based on always transmitting empathy and transparency to empower clients to process thoughts and emotions in a healthy way and work on a collaborative treatment plan. Throughout my counseling career, I have noticed that these two characteristics provide a safe space for clients to better understand their thoughts and build their confidence to be the best version of themselves.
My professional education started with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology with a minor in Health at the University of Texas - Rio Grande Valley. Then, I earned my Master of Education degree with a specialization in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from a CACREP accredited graduate program at the University of Texas - Rio Grande Valley. My counseling master’s level internship was completed at the University of Texas - Rio Grande Valley in which my previous experience include working with children, adolescents, and young adults.
In my leisure time, I love to spend time outdoors, hiking, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. Thank you for visiting my profile and I look forward to working together soon!
