Starting a Family Doesn’t Have to Be So Difficult
You and your partner decided a while ago that it was time to start a family. So you sat down and mapped out a plan for this next phase of your life. You felt so much joy and excitement to embark on this part of your journey.
Only things haven’t gone quite as planned. You’ve endured many ups and downs you couldn’t have imagined, like multiple miscarriages, fertility tests, IVF treatments, and health scares.
On top of that, you feel like you’re not getting the care and support you need from your doctors. It feels like each time you go in for an appointment; they give you the same information and suggestions you’ve been following — which aren’t working.
So you’re both starting to reach the end of your rope, feeling a slew of emotions like:
Shock that this month's pregnancy test came back negative.
Upset that you have to go through another round of IVF.
Frustration because it feels like your body seems to be working against you.
Angry that the doctor's guidelines and suggestions aren't working.
Jealous of your friends who get pregnant without even trying.
Disappointment because you may never reach your dream of having children.
Stressed trying to cope with these traumatic changes and uncertainty each month.
Lonely because you feel like no one understands what you're going through.
As hard as it is to hear, experiencing all these emotions is normal — and it’s ok to feel this way!
But what’s not ok? The lack of quality support and information for couples like you going through the pregnancy process.
We understand how stressful this process can be. So we teamed up to create an integrated therapy and coaching practice that supports couples trying to start a family. Because you deserve encouragement and guidance as you move through this challenging process.
Our goal is to offer insights and teach you healthy tools so you can heal in all areas of your life. Working with our therapists and coaches can also help you process your emotions, find inner peace, and reduce your stress.
If that sounds like what you need, reach out to us today.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...

A Unique and Personalized Approach
With all this focus on pregnancy and reproductive issues, you might be wondering, “My partner and I need help with this, but what about…”
Dealing with the stress in our marriage lately?
Resolving the strain on our relationships with our family and friends?
Decreasing our anxiety and depression symptoms?
Handling the career expectations and pressures we’ve been feeling lately?
Working through my feelings without my partner being in the room?
Finding a healthier way to live that’s good for our bodies?
All these are valid thoughts and questions we help couples with — using our blended, holistic approach to healing.
We believe all areas of our lives are interconnected and influence each other. So to fully heal and find inner peace, we help you and your partner with the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of your life by:
Creating a healthier lifestyle around food, sleep, and exercise.
Decreasing any mental anguish from anxiety, depression, or stress.
Increasing your emotional resilience, focus, and fortitude.
Developing a mindfulness practice that keeps you grounded and calm.
We’ll guide you through exercises or provide tools and techniques personalized for you and your spouse to help you achieve your goals.
How do we do this?
By relying on a unique aspect of our practice — interweaving our therapy and coaching skills among our clients. We’re not afraid to use a coaching technique in a therapy session or vice versa.
This overlap of services also extends to how you and your partner can get the help you need from our team of coaches and therapists. So this setup might look like you working with:
A team member individually who consults with their colleagues to ensure they’re providing the best possible solutions for you.
One team member individually at the beginning (i.e., a therapist) and transferring to a new team member when you’re ready (i.e., a life coach).
Multiple team members at the same time (i.e., a therapist and a coach) to ensure your healing process is cohesive.
A different team member, individually and separately from your partner. Then participate in joint sessions, or co-coaching, with your partner and team member(s) as needed.
This fluid setup of our practice ensures you get quality care and service from a team that wants to support you as you go through life’s challenges.
We Help With More Than Just the Pregnancy Process
We love working with couples as a team.
Rebekah enjoys guiding women through any traumatic experiences or mindset work to regulate their emotions. While Danté loves supporting men through this process by knocking down the narrative that “men must bottle their emotions, be strong and avoid asking for help.”
And when needed, we also offer co-counseling or co-coaching sessions to couples.
While our primary focus is on couples going through the pregnancy process, we also work with individuals and couples struggling with:
Breakups, separation, or divorce.
Trauma or painful life experiences.
Stress, anxiety, overwhelm, or burnout.
Career expectations, pressures, or promotions.
Self-confidence and trust.
Nutrition and exercise.
Abuse, discrimination, or oppression.
So don’t hesitate to reach out and connect with us. We enjoy helping people through these difficult moments in life because no one should have to tread deep waters alone.

Certified Life Coach
Have you ever had to slap on a smile and gulp down your anxiety? Or ignore your self-doubt by trying to be perfect all the time?
At one point in my life, that was me. But I also know the relief and comfort that comes from finally getting help from a therapist. And yes, you read that right — even as a licensed therapist, I’ve also worked with a therapist.
Because we all reach a point in our lives when we feel totally lost and at our breaking point — and we need help. So I’ve spent the last 11 years dedicated to gaining the knowledge and tools to help people like you move forward in life. In that time, I’ve earned the following degrees and certifications:
Undergraduate Psychology Degree
Master’s in Social Work
Certified Life Coach
As a therapist, I want to help you find relief from the memories or mistakes in your past. I also want to guide you through the healing process at a pace that’s safe and natural for you. I’ll use research-based techniques to help you overcome your challenges. So you can lead a healthy, vibrant life.
If you’re ready to start the healing process, connect with me and we’ll get started.

Certified Life & Health Coach
Are you going through a challenging stage in your life? One that leaves you feeling lost, confused, conflicted, or disconnected from the people around you?
It’s ok, and you’re not alone in how you feel. I’ve worked with many people who’ve experienced these same feelings at some point in their lives.
But they were able to get through it — and I firmly believe we’re all born with the qualities we need to achieve everything we want. You have what you need to find your purpose, place, and happiness. You just need a little coaching and encouragement to bring it out.
This idea is a foundational element of my coaching philosophy and one I learned from 10 years in holistic coaching and faith-based counseling. During that time, I also earned many certifications, such as:
Diploma in Modern Applied Psychology
Certified Life Coach
Certified NLP Master Practitioner
Certified Personal Trainer
Certified Metabolic Analysis Expert
Integrative Nutrition Health Coach
With this training, I can help you find clarity and direction in your life. Together, we’ll identify your goals, find solutions, and take action steps to create the life you want. Whether it’s in your relationships, career, or health, I can help you grow and realize your full potential.

We’re People Too…
As a team of therapists and coaches, our mission is all about helping others — and sometimes it seems like that’s all we do. But we do so much more outside of HVL Therapy & Coaching Center.
While our passions include meditation and fitness, one of our favorite activities is planning fun, themed nights with our friends (like Board Game Night or Fresh Food & Fine Wine Night). Aside from fun nights in, we always enjoy riding our bikes around Houston or walking along Buffalo Bayou.
At night, we love to cuddle with Prince Smokey, our one-and-a-half-year-old Cavapoo who’s always got big energy and lots of love for us. Or curl up on the couch reading and watching movies like The Count of Monte Cristo, Breaking Bad, or Avatar: The Last Airbender.
So if there’s a fascinating book you read, or a new TV show you discovered, don’t be afraid to tell us about it. We love getting to know our clients on a personal level and sharing our stories in return.
