A place to emotionally unload and connect
We believe that our lives are at their best when we have healthy relationships with ourselves and others, because we are all connected. Thus, the state of our relationships directly affects how we relate to ourselves and vice versa. Unload It Therapy in Houston, TX was born from a need in the community to recognize these core tenets of our basic human needs. Our therapists are, at their core, humans with therapy licenses and education. What that means is we understand what it feels like to experience the challenges and traumas that our clients may be dealign with feels like. Instead of telling you what to do and how to live your life like a authority figure, we walk alongside our clients as they navigate their lives towards healing pain and emotional injuries.
We specialize in helping you feel less stuck in all your relationships (with yourself and others) and supporting you in navigating through the troubled waters that trauma has brought. We are not here to diagnose you. Instead, we work with you using a more holistic, reality based, supportive approach. And although we remain professional and ensure your confidentiality at all times, because we take a individualized, pragmatic approach when working with our clients, it may feel like you’re talking to a friend.

What we believe
- Our clients have everything they need within them already. We are here, committed to supporting them to help them reach their goals.
- We believe that therapy is a human-to-human experience that enhances us all.
- Challenges occur over time and in context. Nothing happens to us from nowhere. We take the time to get deeper into the why and help you connect the dots to address problems as they arise.
- Our clients do the best they know and come to therapy to gain the tools and support needed to make important changes in their lives.
- We do everything for a reason, and that reason is mainly to protect ourselves. Even “the things that don’t work” serves a purpose.
- Therapy is a privilege. We recognize that there are many people in the world, both inside and outside of our society, who cannot afford the time to consider how to make changes in their lives. Instead, they are in a state of survival. We honor their journey by treating our clients with dignity and giving them the personalized care they deserve.
- Nothing is too small. Everything you go through is important and should not be discounted.
- Validation is our secret sauce, and vulnerability is our superpower. We believe that all pain needs to be validated, and by teaching and helping others to be vulnerable, we help them unlock a superpower that will carry them through life.
- Simple head nods and asking: “how does that make you feel” are not enough. We help our clients access their truest feelings while helping them link actions to patterns and giving them actionable steps to take to reach their goals.
- The person defines trauma. As trauma-informed therapists, our main concerns are safety and not reinjuring. We check in with our clients throughout the process.
