Patricia Hernandez Practice Description
"Patricia Hernandez, LCSW is a clinical social worker and supervisor licensed in the state of Texas. She is bilingual Mexican-American and considers counseling a calling. Through her background and experience, she strives to provide a diverse and cultural perspective. She believes that one of the bravest things a person can do in this life is to begin to understand their personal journey, and currently sees patients via virtual therapy.
Patricia describes her approach to therapy as conversational with a unique means of 'sneaking in' therapy without emphasis, allowing the patient space to have a-ha moments and then circling back to progress made and therapeutic skills they can continue to use to enhance progress. She has years of serious mental health and illness that includes psychosis, schizophrenia, co-occurring disorders, and has found that a focus on a strengths-based and solution focused approach, rooted in CBT and DBT, is very beneficial. Patricia is a certified clinical trauma professional and keeps an awareness of trauma within her interactions, and takes a trauma sensitive approach. Patricia cheekily associates being ""a cool mom"" to being a ""cool therapist."" An easy-going, non-judgemental approach builds trust and rapport. When she is not working Patricia enjoys traveling, crafting and has a new found appreciation for grounding in nature, and respect for alternatives to healing to include breathwork, manifesting, and chakra healing.
