Take a Moment… Maybe More

Life is available only in the present. That is why we should walk in such a way that every step can bring us to the here and the now.

Angela Cano Sampson


Licensed Professional Counselor, Ph.D. (Candidate), LPC, NCC, CSC

I am a Counselor Education and Supervision Doctoral Candidate at St. Mary’s University. I am a member of Chi Sigma Iota and hold a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Texas at San Antonio.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Certified School Counselor, Certified School Administrator and Special Education Teacher. I am a Visiting Professor at Texas A&M International University teaching graduate School Counseling courses. I have served as College and Career Coordinator and Mental Health Counselor for the Center for Refugee Services. After more than 25 years counseling and working in schools within the San Antonio and New Braunfels communities, I now practice in the heart of the Medical Center in San Antonio Texas at Evolución Counseling where counseling services are offered to individuals, couples, and families facing a broad range of issues.

I am experienced and trained to deliver Quality Telemental Health Counseling to meet your needs. As a cancer survivor of 9 years, I can relate to those who, like me, have experienced the process of living with and beating cancer… embracing this moment as a life-changing experience. Happily, I can support those who seek post traumatic growth and the opportunities for creative self-transformation into an even “better person” from before. I am “ALL IN” with taking this journey with you and your family wherever it may lead!

My style is holistic in nature catering to the client’s mind, body and soul and social emotional learning as they navigate their world. I draw from a strengths-based, solution- focused therapeutic approach. In my work and training, I include Client Centered, Cognitive Behavioral, Multicultural and Interpersonal Psychotherapies to support my clients with living their most optimal lives.

We all struggle from time to time in our lives and for people with special needs this struggle may be all consuming. My life’s work is to help all people improve their lives through counseling. As a licensed professional counselor associate my goal is to empower you and/or your loved one as you discover new tools to help you manage and persevere through life’s struggles.  

In my specialized experience working as a special education teacher and professional school counselor, I have been successful working in collaboration with parents in helping students with varied cognitive and social capabilities, Autism and Intellectual Development Disabilities navigate the challenges they encounter.

In my practice, I use an integrative approach to working with individuals that includes Solution Focused, Reality and Somatic psychotherapies to address issues such as struggling to cope with change, managing emotions, relationship issues, academic difficulties, anger, and behavioral issues.

If you or your loved one are struggling with any of these issues and find yourself needing support, please email me at EvolucionCounseling@yahoo.com or call to set up an appointment. I look forward to working with you.

Counseling is expected to bring many benefits. However, specific results are not guaranteed. Counseling is a personal exploration and may lead to personal changes in your life, perspective, and the decisions you make. These changes may affect significant relationships, your job, and/or your understanding of yourself. Some of these life changes could be temporarily distressing. The exact nature of these changes cannot be predicted. Together we will work to achieve the best possible results for you. We assure you that our services will be rendered in a professional manner consistent with accepted ethical standards.


At Evolución Counseling, it is important to us that we are a good fit in our working relationship and that our clients are aware that if at any time you feel that our time together is no longer of benefit to you and your course in life, you are welcomed always to share your concerns and should you choose, end counseling at any time. We offer a variety of resources to assist you with finding the best fit to support you with your counseling needs and you are always welcome to return.
