Audrey Zatopek, MA, LPC (76358), LCDC (13534)

Relevant to my style, I like to challenge my clients to grow, be better, and learn something new with every encounter we have. Growth isn’t always the most pleasant to experience, but I can promise any growth I encourage will be for your benefit! I aspire to help every person I work with become his or her best self, and that starts with making a decision to dive into therapy. If I sound like a good fit for you, I look forward to our therapeutic journey together! 

I was drawn to this profession because I’ve felt a calling on my life since childhood to help make the world a better place. I’ve come to love helping people repair themselves and their lives; getting to witness their metamorphoses makes it so meaningful.

​​LICENSE, EDUCATION, and EXPERIENCE

 

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology with a Minor in Spanish from the University of Texas at Austin and a Master of Arts in Counseling from Houston Graduate School of Theology. I’m both a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor, and I have completed Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) training. EMDR is a therapy that can weaken the emotional distress associated with traumatic memories from the past and research has shown that EMDR can help with phobias, PTSD, anxiety disorders, chronic pain, addictions, and eating disorders.

I have a varied work history as a therapist involving working at a Christian not-for-profit center, two psychiatric hospitals, a residential substance abuse treatment facility, and the Harris County Community Supervision and Corrections Department with DWI offenders on probation. In these settings, I have worked with persons struggling with many different issues, and as such, I am confident I can help you with yours!
