About Me

“Obtain all the knowledge that your MIND deserves.

Practice coping skills to experience desirable changes

in your BODY.

Attain wisdom that your SOUL is longing for.” ~Anand Vyas  

Hello! I’m Anand Vyas

Licensed Therapist

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.

TIPS FOR ENJOYING YOUR THANKSGIVING MINDFULLY (By Anand Vyas, Ph.D., LPC, NCC):-

1. Avoid Conflicts:
Thanksgiving can be a stressful time as you may have views that differ from your family. Avoid topics that may cause conflict in opinions and views. Do not take things personally and "let it go."

2. Be generous (in your actions and thoughts):
Lend a helping hand when you can. Love and accept your family--imperfections and all. Celebrate your differences. When you are communicating with someone, do not interrupt that person and let him/her finish what he/she wants to say. If you are listening, just listen without thinking this is wrong or I'm gonna say "XYZ" when he/she finishes.

3. Cook and clean mindfully:
You can cook mindfully. If you are cutting something in the kitchen, just say "I'm cutting...I'm cutting...I'm cutting" and just cut. If you are frying something, then you can say to yourself "I'm frying...I'm frying...I'm frying" and just fry. Do not try to do multiple things at once which can be dangerous. You can clean your home mindfully as well. If you are vacuuming your house, then just vacuum. If you are washing a few dishes, then feel the warm or cold water on your skin and enjoy the aroma of the soap.

4. Eat small portions:
Do not feel obligated to eat large portions of food to please your host. Take small portions, say thanks and carry-on. Eat mindfully and pay full attention to the first three bites that you eat. Involve your senses. Enjoy the aroma, taste, texture, and the color of the food. Eat and savor one bite at a time.

5. Don't feed your emotions:
Avoid eating out of boredom or to mask uncomfortable feelings. Do not distract yourself by eating junk or try to numb yourself by drinking alcohol excessively. Remember, alcohol is a depressant. It can make you more depressed.

6. Take time for yourself:
Remember to put an oxygen mask on yourself first. While you may be busy preparing for your guests, preparing to travel or busy mingling with family and friends, don't forget to take a few minutes for yourself to breathe, meditate and practice mindfulness.

"Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings."--William Arthur Ward

"Gratitude is one of the most
medicinal emotions we can feel.
It elevates our moods and
fills us with joy."--Sara Stover

"Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more.
If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough."--Oprah
