Hi! I am Daye Veltri, I hold a Master of Science In Clinical Mental Health Counseling from The University of St. Thomas. I also received my bachelor's degree in journalism from Universidad Catolica.
I did my practicum at St. Joseph hospital-Houston, which is a psychiatric facility. At St. Joseph Hospital I facilitated group, individual, and family psychotherapy on issues ranging from trauma, major depressive disorder, addiction, sexual abuse, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, borderline personality, suicidal and homicidal ideation.
In my experience as a psychotherapist and as a Journalist, I listen to people's stories. Stories are the way people say to another: this is who I am, this is what I believe, and this is how I see the world. In psychotherapy, these dimensions are expanded to reach a better understanding of ourselves, the way we think, behave and relate with others. Sometimes we need a little help, and that's what brought you to this page today.
"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom"

ALL ABOUT THERAPY
In psychotherapy, mental health professionals apply scientifically validated procedures to help people develop realistic, healthier, and more effective habits. Psychotherapy is a process of growth and self-discovery. It is a cooperative treatment based on the relationship between an individual and mental health professional.
Based on the dialogue, therapy offers a safe environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who’s objective, neutral and nonjudgmental. It helps build self-esteem, reduce anxiety, strengthen coping mechanisms, and improve social and community functioning.
