Erika Labuzan-Lopez, MA, LMFT, LPC

I was always the kid on the playground that everyone came to for advice and to talk with about their problems. I heard everything from classmates fighting over a mean look from their BFF to the challenges and despair of having one’s parents go through a divorce. I listened to everyone’s troubles and did whatever I could to help. I had the strong desire to work with people in getting past their pain to find happiness. So I guess you could say I’ve been a therapist since elementary school! I got my Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology from Baylor University and my Masters of Arts in Family Therapy from the University of Houston-Clear Lake. In school, my focus was on working with addiction as I completed my internship at the Council on Alcohol and Drugs Houston. I also provided education and advocated for clinician training in working with the LGBT population. I currently work in a nursing home setting in which I provide therapy to residents. In this setting, I have worked with individuals and families dealing with difficult adjustments and transitions, depression, grief, anxiety, and interpersonal conflict. As my life progresses, I have made the decision to go into private practice. My specialties are a result of my professional and personal interests and experiences. I hold two licenses in the state of Texas: Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy Associate #202082 and Licensed Professional Counselor #71690. I am a member of several professional associations, including the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT), Texas Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (TAMFT), Houston Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (HAMFT), Association of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) Mental Health Professional Group (MHPG), and Resolve: The National Infertility Association.
