I'm so thankful you're here because that means you're contemplating taking control of your life. You're no longer willing to settle. You're tired of being tired. You're ready to begin experiencing more joy and MORE PLEASURE. I applaud you for being proactive about your growth and healing!
Okay, so who am I and why am I so excited that you're visiting my website.
My name is Eliza Boquin (pronounced eh-lee-sa bo-keen--I know, it's confusing) and I am a Texas licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Relationship Therapist, and Sexuality Expert. I'm the owner, founder and primary psychotherapist of The Relationship & Sexual Wellness Healing Center.
I specialize in working with relationship & sexuality challenges.
I am also a student of the Institute for Integrated Healing learning how to ethically combine traditional psychotherapy and the ancient art of Chakra Healing (more to come with that in 2018).
OK, so those are my titles and what I do, but here's what I want you to know about ME...the therapist, the person, the HUMAN.
My view on psychotherapy is simple. I believe we all do our best in life with what we know at the time. Then there comes a point in our lives where what we know isn't enough for us to live authentic, satisfying, healthy lives. At that point, life challenges us to grow.
In a perfect world, we would all thrive and be free of pain, but the reality is the human experience includes the lows, as well as the highs. I believe, wholeheartedly, that it's during painful experiences that we are presented with an opportunity to grow and heal. It's also when we most need support.
My life philosophy is simple--live life with an open heart. Honestly, I don't know any other way to be. I bring my open heart to everything I do, including my work with clients. This open heart allows me to hold space for the people I work with in the deepest moments of despair--that connection is what facilitates the healing process.
If you decide to work with me, my commitment to you will be to provide:
compassionate, ethical, and nonjudgmental support;
skills and resources to reach your goals; and
a safe place to model and practice healthy relationship skills.
I won't give you "advice" or impose my beliefs and values onto you. I won't pretend that I have all the answers--that's not what therapy is about. That's not what I'm about. Instead, I will provide you with a safe space to process your emotions, learn new skills, and gain insight that you can use to make choices that are aligned with YOU. I may be an expert in relationships and sexuality, but YOU are the EXPERT OF YOUR LIFE.
You set the goals and I provide you with my expertise, knowledge, and perspective on how you may be able to get there.
I promise to provide compassionate, ethical, and competent support. From day one, we will work together to find solutions and get you closer to the life you desire.
Together we will formulate a customized plan that will provide you with the support, tools, and resources you need to accomplish your goals.
We won't be able to resolve everything in one session, but we will begin to map out the path towards healing.
As a therapist, I believe in a team-based approach--with clients and other professionals. I'm an active member in the psychotherapy and sexual health world, so I have the privilege of knowing and working with some of the country's top medical professionals/experts in the field. I frequently collaborate with these individuals to provide my clients with a holistic approach to their treatment.
Everyday I get to witness people heal and grow right before my eyes. I'm reminded how resilient the human spirit is on a daily basis. I LOVE THIS WORK! I am HUMBLED by this work. I believe we all have the right to love, joy, and pleasure but first, we have to heal.
I would be honored to be part of your healing process. Call me today at 281.972.0704 and let's begin this path towards the life you always desired.
