Hi! You have made the first step on a new journey!
I know talking to a stranger can be a bit unnerving. So, let me introduce myself. I'm Mieasha Edmonds. I have been practicing as a counselor for over 8 years now and in the mental health field for about 10 years. My journey started when I received my Bachelor of Arts in English from Sam Houston State University. During that time I served as a local youth pastor while at SHSU. I went on to attend seminary to fulfill my goal of becoming a Chaplain for the United Methodist Church. It was during that process that I fell in love with counseling and changed my life’s trajectory. I later earned my Masters of Arts in Counseling and Masters of Divinity from Houston Graduate School of Theology. Since graduating, I have grown to love all aspects of spirituality and counseling. In my 10 years I have worked with adolescents, elderly, and adults who struggle with addiction and mental illness. I have worked as a psychotherapist in both inpatient and outpatient settings and have experience in providing services and support to those who are struggling with grief and loss, anxiety, trauma, depression, substance use, psychosis, and life stressors.
I am a proud member of the LGBT community. I believe that everyone deserves to be loved and understood. I am passionate about helping others heal and my therapeutic approach consists of person-centered, solution-focused, and strengths-based therapies. However, I meet the needs of clients on an individual, case by case basis. I'm looking forward to sharing this journey with you.
