About Andrea Torres, LCSW

Let’s figure it out together!

I strongly believe in the importance of clients being able to establish a good therapeutic relationship with the right therapist for them. It is my motto to work with you as a team to help you identify the skills and strength to live the happy and healthy life you want. I am happy to meet you where you are at in your journey and provide the support and safety you need.

I’m an English & Spanish-speaking therapist who is also fluent in sign language! I work with teenagers 14+, adults, and couples, both in-person or via telehealth. I am EMDR certified and have provided trauma counseling to individuals for four years. I am also Gottman Method Couples Therapy trained and have been growing my work with couples. You can expect I will use a variety of treatment styles for your individual needs, including CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Therapy, as well as DBT skills as I find them to be very helpful for clients and like to provide a variety of tools to use as life events arise. Identifying you may need a little help is the first step; I am just a guide to help you overcome your challenges. I love working with all sorts of individuals and I am proud to provide a judgment-free zone in my office.

Don’t Mess with Texas

I was born and raised in El Paso, TX, which is a border town. In 2014, I received my bachelor’s degree at Texas State University in San Marcos, and from there, made my way to Phoenix where I obtained my Master of Social Work in 2017. I began my career as an LMSW at a recovery center for seriously mentally ill adults and transitioned to the outpatient setting once I got my LCSW in 2020.

Outside the office, I will spend my weekend with a good book, playing soccer and water volleyball. I love staying active, spending time with my friends, and am excited to be getting back into traveling, though I enjoy being at home with my husband and our three cats.  My weakness is takis – give me a bag and you make my whole day, but since I am a bit addicted, it is best not to!!

I am excited to work with every client that comes my way and I will always be direct and honest with you about what to expect.
