Holly Felts, MS, LPC
Holly Felts serves as a Licensed Professional Counselor with the Family Violence Bureau, under the Criminal Investigative Division, of the Corpus Christi Police Department, in Corpus Christi, Texas. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi in 2000. She later went on to achieve her Master of Science in Counseling from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi in 2018. Continuing her education has equipped Holly to meet her clients and victims where they are, with the purpose of helping them get where they need to be, in order to achieve a more peaceful and fulfilled life. Holly believes the counseling process is a unique journey she is blessed to take alongside her clients, in order to help them attain their goals, and live their lives at their personal best.
Holly works with adolescents and adults who are suffering from the effects of depression, anxiety, abuse, grief, as well as, victims of trauma, human trafficking, and family violence. She also works off-site from police headquarters to offer services to police personnel, both sworn and auxiliary, first responders throughout the community, and their families. With her therapy dog, Winston, Holly serves individuals, couples, and families utilizing the therapeutic approaches of Cognitive Behavorial Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). She also incorporates Client Centered Therapy and uses a Family Systems approach, as needed. Her professional calling is to provide a nonjudgmental atmosphere for her clients, where they feel comfortable and safe on their personal journeys of healing and growth, throughout the counseling process. Holly believes all people can benefit by seeking a Christ-centered counselor to help them navigate life’s situations, trials & tribulations, decisions, hurt, and their pasts. In doing so, she provides clients with the opportunity to achieve their brightest future possible, by following the model of God’s best for each of us, (reference to Isaiah 61:1). Although Holly’s personal goal of helping others know their worth and greatest potential by showing and sharing the love of Jesus to all people she encounters, the spiritual component of counseling is only incorporated at her clients’ request. Holly’s counseling philosophy is, we cannot expect others to experience love and light, if our approach only emphasizes their darkness. Therefore, her role as a counselor is guided by the Biblical truth found in Matthew 5:16, “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in Heaven.”
