Specializing in Marriage & Couples Counseling, Pre-marital Counseling, Individual Relationship Counseling & Individual Personal Growth.

I believe that the best way to predict the future is to help create it! I use a counseling approach that is positive, active and solution-oriented, with the goal of helping my clients achieve hope, fulfillment and growth in their personal lives and relationships. I specialize in relationship and marriage counseling and have advanced training two of the most renowned and successful approaches to marital and relationship therapy, each of which have been scientifically validated, Gottman Method Couples Therapy Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. I work with each couple to create a personalized plan that will help them improve their friendship, improve communication, help to productively manage conflict, and achieve secure connection and shared meaning.

In Individual Personal Growth Counseling I help my clients learn to create their Best Life! Sometimes we find ourselves at a place in life where we feel stuck or overwhelmed.  We know we need to make some changes but we don't know quite what to do or how to begin. Personal growth counseling lends that helping hand to take the next step.  We may need to make a decision, change a bad habit, deal with a relationship, make a career change or just want to feel happier about life in general.  Personal growth counseling can help!

Angela Swanberg-Kilbourn, M.A. LPC 
Licensed Professional Counselor
Located in Suite 603, Direct Phone Number is: (281) 635-3609
Specializing in Anxiety, Depression, Stress-Management, Trauma, Body-Image and Related Concerns.

I believe my role as a counseling professional is to support and guide my client(s) toward healthy lives and relationships. This is achieved through thoughtfully identifying and managing sustainable goals throughout the therapeutic process. It is my personal and professional belief that we each have a sense of what we are striving for, but sometime in life, we are challenged with daily tasks and stressors, (perhaps even traumas), that distract or discourage us from focusing on our values and overall well-being. My approach is focused specifically on each client and their needs and incorporates methods and techniques from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Existential Therapy. While these techniques are valuable, what I find to be the most meaningful in the healing process is being heard and reminded that you are not alone. The work of therapy is important and unique to each client, and I am honored to walk alongside those who are doing that work.

Speciality Areas: Anxiety, Depression, Stress-Management, Trauma, Body-Image and Related Issues.

Education: Master of Arts in Counseling from Houston Baptist University, Houston, TX. Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Texas A&M University, College Station, TX.

License, Certifications: Licensed Professional Counselor. Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. Additional Post-Graduate Training in Trauma.

I work with couples to find new approaches for effective communication, conflict resolution and togetherness. For couples who are interested in premarital enrichment counseling, I work to provide tools to strengthen communication with one another in many areas. I also special experience working with couples who have children with special needs and/or behavioral issues. I believe that working with couples is a collaborative process which includes the concerns and issues that are important to each partner. It is my job to be an advocate for the relationship. The best way I have found to do this is by using the Gottman Method for Couples Therapy. This method utilizes scientifically validated tools to help couples learn to connect and communicate as well as manage conflict effectively. While taking into account the needs of each partner, Gottman Therapy focuses on strengthening and repairing the relationship.

When working with engaged couples, I utilize TWOGETHER in TEXAS' GREAT START premarital counseling. In this process, I have found that even couples who have been in their relationship for a long period of time may begin to talk about important issues for the first time. These are conversations that are very important in achieving a happy and long lasting marriage.

I also work with individuals to achieve personal growth and help with struggles with day to day stressors, anxiety and depression. When I work with individuals, I focus on their unique personal narrative. I believe my clients are the expert on their own personal experience and are the vehicle for the changes they wish to achieve. By collaborating with my clients, we are able to work together to find solutions and create positive change.
