“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." NIV
Qualifications: I hold a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Counseling from the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Supervisor, LPC-S, # 19601, with the state of Texas. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, CCTP. I have additional training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I am certified in Restoration Therapy, Level 1. I am a certified SYMBIS facilitator. I am a member of the American Counseling Association (ACA) and the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACA).
Scope of Practice: My life is centered on my personal relationship with Jesus Christ. As a Christian, I believe the spiritual condition of the client is an integral component of the counseling relationship. I work with a diverse population. My primary focus has been trauma; however, I see a wide range of clients, from children to couples. I use an eclectic approach in the counseling session to best serve the clients in achieving their goals. Because of my desire to help people grow in their relationship with their LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ, Graceview Counseling Center was formed in June 2014. In five years, we have seen God perform miracles through His life giving transformational power. Please feel free to contact me personally at [email protected]

MsCMHC, NCC, LPC
Life Verse: Isaiah 58:8
"Your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear."
Qualifications: I hold a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Comparative Religion and a Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. For the past several years, I have had an amazing opportunity to work with adolescent and adult patients in a psychiatric critical care facility. Last year I joined Graceview and I am actively building my clientele. As a fully licensed counselor I am specializing in anxiety, depression, anger and grief issues. I am the founding director of The Healing Cooperative, a networking and support group for holistic healing.
Scope of Practice: In addition to incorporating traditional client centered CBT, my psychotherapeutic focus is to work towards facilitating self-healing through various holistic modalities such as art therapy, meditation, and mindfulness. By encouraging my clients to explore creative expression they are invited to discover the inner workings of their psyche. My Judeo-Christian background contributes to my appreciation of multicultural, client-centered counseling and one of my greatest joys is facilitating group counseling where people of diverse backgrounds can come together to heal as a group. Be one the lookout for various group therapy opportunities coming up in 2020! You can reach out to me personally at [email protected]

Mike Hodson, MS,LMFT-Associate
Life Verse: Jeremiah 29:11
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." NIV
Qualifications: I am currently a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate under the supervision of Kristin Henshaw M.S., LMFT-S. I received my Masters of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from Fuller Theological Seminary Arizona in 2016. I also received my Graduate Diploma of Christian Counseling from Phoenix Seminary in 2013. I work with adult individuals, couples, families, and adolescent groups. Based on a family's willingness to engage in therapy, I assist parents in understanding healthy communication patterns, easing transitions for their children, and decreasing the potential for parental alienation. I also have experience working with adolescents with anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorders as well as their families.
Scope of Practice: As a marriage and family therapist, I believe struggles are part of a larger system. Relationships in the past and present affect how we see ourselves and the world around us, both positively and negatively. My approach to therapy is to join you in your journey to “connect the dots” of your life experiences in order to understand the present. I believe you are the expert of your life story and have the ability to effect change. My hope is to create a space where you feel free to be open and comfortable to work toward your goals. I look forward to meeting you! MikeH@graceviewcc.com
