Elda M. Stepp, PhD, LPC, LPCC, CART

Mental Health Counselor, Certified Anger Resolution Therapist & Certified Grief Counseling Specialist

Hi there!  Are you having difficulties coping and managing emotions?  Is life feeling difficult, overwhelming and challenging?

 

Life can change and I can help. 

 

My name is Elda M. Stepp and I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Texas, a Certified Anger Resolution Therapist (CART), Certified Grief Counseling Specialist and a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in New Mexico.  I currently practice counseling at Counseling of El Paso as a mental health counselor.

 

My counseling approach  is humanistic and empathetic.  I understand the importance of being listened and receiving guidance.

 

My clinical background includes experience working with individuals who have a history of complex trauma, experiencing difficulties with anger management, processing complex grief, and dual mental health diagnosis.  I understand the complexities of managing anger and emotions.  In addition, I am well versed in the de-escalation of crisis situations and stabilization.

 

I obtained my BS at Park University in Ft. Bliss in Social Psychology, my MA at Webster University also in Ft. Bliss in Mental Health Counseling, and have received my Ph.D. in Forensic Psychology. I am currently completing my dissertation research on veterans and how they experience empathy after being exposed to combat.

 

Previously, I worked in a prison setting where I provided anger management services and sex offender treatment in New Mexico.  I have also worked in a halfway house setting where I provided support, anger management and mental health services in El Paso, Tx.

 

My hobbies include reading and research, along with creating art, and listening to soothing music while drinking tea and/or coffee.  I also enjoy spending time with my husband and my cats.   For self-care, I enjoy spending time alone while regrouping my thoughts and nurturing spiritual needs. Feel free to call our office to set up an appointment.

 

If this feels right for you, please, feel free to call our office to set up an appointment.
