Nikki Lewis

I was born and raised in Houston, Texas by two strong Black women. Being a person of color with same-sex parents came with a few struggles, but it drove my passion to make a change in the lives of those who face inequality. I found courage within myself to actualize my dream and now I can proudly say I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Associate (under the supervision of Dr. Stacy Speedlin Gonzalez).

Natasha Villalobos

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Associate under the supervision of Christopher Leeth, PhD, LPC-S. I am a Corpus Christi transplant and a UTSA alumna with a BA in Psychology with Highest Honors and International Distinction and a MS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (mind readings available for a small fee of $1 million, listening ear is free). I constantly expand my repertoire of counseling skills and psychological know-how by staying abreast of current literature and techniques in counseling to provide evidence-based care to clients.

I’m a proud first-generation graduate from The University of Texas at San Antonio (Go ‘Runners!). I have a bachelor’s degree in Multidisciplinary Studies with focus areas in psychology, political science, and communications, and recently graduated with a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am an LPC-Associate under the supervision of Leigh Rainwater LPC-S. I primarily work with children, adolescents, and families, and I believe that this population faces many challenges as they are learning and striving to meet certain expectations every day.

I offer virtual & in-person counseling with teens and adults, couples, and families, and I have experience with anxiety, gender and sexual orientation identity and expression, depression, life transitions, family difficulties, grief, substance use, ADHD, career development, and marriage and parenting issues.

I utilize a trauma-informed/sensitive approach to create a safe
environment for you to explore and process your needs at your own pace. I believe that you are
the expert in your life; I seek to work alongside you to find what works best in your path to
develop the person you want to be. It is my greatest privilege to have your trust and for sharing
the most difficult aspects of your life with me.

My values lie in providing inclusive services to support my community
in English and en Español.
