Evolución: Counseling Beyond Words; Go Where You Feel Most Alive

At Evolución, we extend a warm welcome to those navigating life’s challenges, whether they be in relationships, discovering your life’s purpose, or finding your true path. If you are dealing with unresolved and difficult to deal with trauma, Evolución is your safe space to allow you to figure out how to take the helm and manage the emotions that come with your distress. We’re here to provide unwavering support for grief, anxiety, stress, sadness, depression, life’s transitions, and the complexities of life planning.

In our experience, we share our lessons learned and help with ways to help you deal with the struggles of a cancer diagnosis and treatment and the impact it may have in your life.

With over 50 years of combined experience in School and Community Counseling, it is our desire to work with clients and students who are transitioning throughout life’s phases. We encourage reflection on where your life has been, and where it’s going, teach skills on how to focus on the positive and “what has worked” strengths and realize that change is inherent to life.

Meet the Founders

Seth and Angela have much to share about traveling through life’s adversities as it relates to overcoming the plethora of emotions involved with divorce, sustaining a healthy marriage, and dealing with the uncertainties that cancer infuses on a loved one and our relationship. In our resilience and perceptive awareness we have found ourselves finding inspiration and healing in the act of helping others. In our time together for over 17 years, this action has weighed greatly into our own mental health in the most positive way where we have discovered that by giving of ourselves to others helps us to think less about the stressors in our own lives thus, allowing us the opportunities to give more attention to how we can use our education, skills, experience, and strengths both individually and as a couple to alleviate some of the hardship’s others are facing. Seth and I find that providing insight of our own life experiences, high quality, individualistic, person-centered counseling has resulted in improving how we  think about ourselves as people and professionals, about the value we bring to those around us, our clients and students, and provides us with a sense of an inner peace. This is our driving force to continue in what we do.  

Seth and Angela currently work with aspiring License Professional Counselors and School Counselors as Counselor Supervisors and Educators at Texas A&M International University and at our practice.

Seth and Angela currently call San Antonio, Texas home and will often be found enjoying outdoor water activities around San Antonio, Boerne and Austin areas with their fur baby shih tzu Lutsen.

Dr. ANGELA CANO SAMPSON

Licensed Professional Counselor, Ph.D., LPC, NCC, CSC

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Certified School Counselor, Certified School Administrator and Special Education Teacher. I am an Assistant Professor of the Master of Science in School Counseling program at Texas A& M International University. 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. I am currently seeing clients face to face as well. As a cancer survivor of 12 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.

EFFECTS OF COUNSELING

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.

REFERRAL SERVICES

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.
