Hello! I’m Anand Vyas
My name is Anand Vyas, Ph.D., NCC, LPC also known as Dr. V. I’m a fully licensed, experienced (10+ years) and down-to-earth professional who is committed to helping you. I have a passion to help heal clients from the inside, so they can truly feel their best. I believe that the most optimal treatment is to treat the whole person. I can equip you with evidence-based tools which will be a lifetime investment.
Since my childhood, coming from a family with roots in the fields of medicine, psychology, education and community service, I always have had the passion to help others.
My goal is to provide the greatest amount of happiness, success, sound health and mental peace to the greatest number of people, for a maximum period of time by making them independent rather than dependent on the therapist.
I specialize in showing children, adolescents, adults, couples, families, and seniors how to reach their full potential and how to experience total health by using evidence-based treatment approaches of psychotherapy/counseling and by using coaching, mindfulness, medical meditation, hypnotherapy, yoga therapy, and breathwork.
I am a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), licensed by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors. I am a member of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the American Counseling Association (ACA).
I have more than ten years of experience providing individual and group therapies, workshops, and seminars in a variety of settings such as medical and wellness centers, partial hospitalization programs, outpatient programs, residential treatment facilities non-profit organizations as well as a private practice.
I reside in Sugar Land along with my wife and son. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, martial arts, photography, meditation, yoga, bike riding, hiking, and spending time in nature. I have a passion for learning about innovative technologies, diverse cultures, philosophies, and languages. Read more…

Culturally appropriate counseling:
Being a US citizen of a different cultural background myself, I know firsthand the importance of understanding a client’s cultural background. I think it is very important to keep a client’s background in mind as it can affect the way one approaches treatment. When assessing and treating clients, I feel that I am most effective when I am able to understand the “entire” client. This involves understanding the client’s familial, socio-economical, educational, emotional, and physiological background. In order to ensure that all of my clients gain happiness, peace, success, and sound health, I take into consideration their language, culture, education, and age when I provide therapy.
What is an LPC?
A Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) has met rigorous standards applied by the state licensing board and national credentialing agency. An LPC is trained to employ a variety of psychological principles through cognitive, affective, behavioral, or systemic intervention strategies to promote wellness, personal growth, or career development, as well as to address pathology.
