Hi! I am Daye Veltri; I am a Therapist and a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor- Associate in the state of Texas; I have a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from The University of St. Thomas, I have a bachelor’s degree in social communication, and Social Development. I am from Venezuela, and I have lived in Mexico, Scotland, and I lived in Houston, TX, Since 2007.
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.
Currently, I am working in private practice, and I specialize in Anxiety, depression, and trauma. I also work with people who want to improve their personal growth and solve certain problems, which in one way or another are interfering in their daily lives. I use a biopsychosocial approach that systematically considers psychological, biological, and social factors and their complex interactions to understand the patient presentation.
The amazing awareness I have experienced in my own life from the power of psychotherapy motivates me to immerse myself in my education and to be a psychotherapist. Recognizing how the quality of my own life improved by self-reflection, the priceless lesson of how to learn from pain, and coming to a profound understanding of who I am inspires me to help people feel confident enough they are. I love to help people in their transformation towards becoming more unconditionally loving, tolerant, and compassionate people. When people are more comfortable with and accepting of, who they are, they are consequently kinder and more loving towards those around them.

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.
