Timothy Spears has been licensed as a professional counselor in the state of Texas since 1990. In
addition to maintaining a private practice for 30 years, he has also provided Crisis services for such
corporations as Exxon- Mobile, Sysco Foods, and Chase. He graduated from the University of Houston
with a master’s degree in Counseling and Guidance in 1988. His initial training was at The Houston
Veterans hospital focused on working with patients presenting with trauma. He brings his varied
experience from both the inpatient and outpatient setting to Lifestance. His experience growing up as
the youngest of 11 children influenced his decision to pursue a career in counseling. His focus in his
work with clients is a holistic and eclectic approach tailored to his clients' specific needs. Identified and
often overlooked strengths he believes are one of the most important aspects of a successful outcome
along with the therapeutic relationship developed with patients. He promotes change in individuals
with his non-judgemental acceptance of all clients regardless of history and presenting issues. He
strongly believes that all patients are capable of change in order to make their lives more fulfilling,
whether it be a change in feelings, thoughts, or behaviors. Clear goals are developed with the client and
open communication about progress is encouraged throughout the process. He is available for
individual, couples, and family therapy.
