Hello! My name is Andres Correa, I am an LPC-Associate at Counseling of El Paso under the supervision of Mr. Guillermo Castaneda, LPC-S, CHt.
I am a former student of Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center where I earned my Master’s of Science degree in addiction counseling, and through which I was able to apply for, and earn a position with, the National Board for Certified Counselors Foundation Minority Fellowship Program for Addiction Counselors.
I earned my bachelor’s degree in biology and biomedical sciences in 2019 from the University of Texas at El Paso, and since then I have made an intentional effort to expand my knowledge within the realms of addiction, neurobiology, and the health sciences.
Before arriving at Counseling of El Paso I worked for 7 years in education, in a wide array of roles ranging from robotics instructor to teacher’s assistant, to teacher.
What I enjoyed most during my time in education was the opportunity to see my student’s grow as individuals and develop as responsible citizens and caring humans that are kind not only to others, but to themselves.
It is that same growth I hope to see developed in all my clients should they allow me the opportunity to meet them within the many intricate pathways of their lives that have shaped them as individuals.
My aspiration is to be able to continue my work with adolescents and young adults that many times face pressures to delve into the world of substance use, and to guide these especially vulnerable populations through community-wide education efforts, and social mobility advocacy.
With that said, my hope is that by serving the El Paso community in this role, I will be returning some of the many investments that the El Paso community has entrusted me with.
