My name is Jheri Bashen-Walters. I am a Texas-based Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Council Approved Supervisor with over ten years of experience working with adolescents and adults. I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Louisiana State University and earned my Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work. 

Additionally, I have provided clinical supervision to Licensed Master Social Workers since 2017. My goal is to model good social work practice, ethics, and values as a supervisor and contribute to the professional development of my colleagues.

In 2021, I stepped away from community mental health, and launched Bashen Behavioral Health. My goal is to promote mental health awareness and provide accessible mental health services. If I am unable to help you, I will assist in finding someone who can.

My Approach

I believe one of the most critical components in counseling is finding a therapist that acknowledges and accepts how your life experiences, gender, cultural background, and spiritual beliefs guide and influence your life. Therefore, I collaborate with my clients through a person-centered approach during the therapy process. 

During treatment, I focus on the human experience rather than symptomology to help clients understand how adverse life experiences have impacted them and taken time away from working towards their life goals.

I incorporate components of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy to help clients identify actionable steps toward living a life congruent with their values.
