Aspen Hazel, MA, LPC-A
Associate Therapist-Site Team Leader
Hello! My name is Aspen Hazel and I am a National Certified Counselor and soon to be Licensed Professional Counselor Associate in the state of Texas. Previously, I was a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate in the state of Colorado. I received my Bachelors of Arts in Psychology in December of 2015 with a minor in Women and Ethnic Studies from University of Colorado Colorado Springs. In December of 2019 I received my Masters of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Colorado Christian University. I have been working hands-on with clients since 2018 and one of the best parts about being a counselor is being able to listen to client's life stories. I believe that most of us have not truly been able to share intimate aspects of our lives with another person and still be able to feel safe and accepted. It is my goal in life & as a counselor to extend empathy to everyone I meet and to resource them with tools that can help them through any situation in life. My therapeutic approach includes Solution-Focused Therapy, CBT, and Motivational Interviewing. I have experience working with an array of clients. I pride myself in being able to work with people of all ages and backgrounds. However, I have gained a lot of experience working with teens aged 12-17, women of all ages, and clients struggling with grief and anxiety. Additionally, I have always had a passion for breaking the mental health stigma in minority communities and have done a lot of advocacy work in both the black community and local church communities. It is important to me that all of my clients have a space where they can be advocated for and encouraged to take their mental health seriously. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and exploring all of the yummy places to eat in Dallas! My husband and I have been together for over seven years and married for over five years. We moved to Dallas, TX from Colorado Springs, CO January of 2021. After many years of trying to have a baby, we were able to get pregnant as soon as we moved here and are now honored to be the parents of a beautiful baby girl.
