Darya Ross, MA, LPC- Associate
ART (Accelerated Resolution Therapy) Trained Therapist
Supervision by Cortnee Wright, MA, LPC-S
Helping people has always been my mission! My sister and I were adopted together from Russia, so guiding people through changes in their life is something that I can personally relate to. Since I was a child, I knew I wanted to work in a field that focused on helping people. Throughout my life, I was the person people gravitated towards when dealing with life struggles. I have experience working in the field of neurofeedback as well as working at an ABA therapy office, while pursuing my master’s degree. I feel that my life experiences and work journey have contributed to my knowledge as a therapist.
I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health. I am a LPC- Associate under the supervision of Cortnee Wright, MA, LPC-S. I hold the license of Licensed Professional Counselor Associate (License #90754), in the state of Texas. I have received training in sand tray, trauma and crisis therapy. I am Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) trained. I have had experience working with a very diverse population, and I have had experience working with Trauma, PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Adoption Transitions, LGBTQ+, Self-Esteem, and Self-harming Behaviors.
I believe strongly in evidence-based practices, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness strategies. I have a passion for working with children, teens, and adults who have experienced trauma. My desire is to help people who are working through the effects of unresolved trauma. I strive to create an environment where you feel comfortable expressing yourself freely, and offer a judgement-free zone to release all emotions and thoughts.
My goal is to provide you with knowledge and individualized appropriate treatment. Most importantly, I will commit to supporting you as you walk the path towards experiencing a better quality of life. Together, we will work through challenging events, while rebuilding your confidence and empowerment.
I enjoy activities with family and friends such as roller skating, playing with my dog, watching tv, going on walks, and traveling. I love exploring new areas, museums, and attending concerts. I love to cook and try new foods. I am always looking forward to finding new adventures.
Counseling can be difficult, and I promise to hold a space for you in an open, caring, accepting and non-judgmental manner. I want you to feel free to openly express yourself. Look forward to working with you!
