“I just want to be happy.”

Can I read your mind or what?

No matter what the reason... and it could be anything... you’ve reached a point where something in your life is not working and you're looking for relief.
You want change.  You want change now.

You’ve come to the right place.

Hi, I’m Randel Porter.

I'm a counselor and therapist in San Antonio.

I have the best clients in the world.  You are intelligent, interesting, multi-faceted, high-functioning, and determined… and you want smart, effective, and engaging counseling or psychotherapy.

Green Counseling Office Chairs

You need change.  You may know exactly what you want to address:  it could be anxiety treatment, depression therapy, marriage counseling, couples counseling, gay/bi/lgbtq counseling, lasting effects of childhood emotional neglect (CEN) or past trauma, or just plain unhappiness.

This can betransformative.

White Office Counseling Chair

Alternatively, you may not know what it is.  But you do know that it’s troubling or confusing or painful and it’s keeping you from feeling the way you want to feel and being who you want to be.  You're seeking pain relief and you're ready for change.

Let'schangeyour life together.

What I canhelpyou with:

Online Counseling

To take precautions during this time of COVID — or simply for convenience — we can do video sessions via Zoom or FaceTime. A free 20-minute consultation is offered for new clients just as it is for in-person.

Happiness counseling?

What the hell is that???

Why isn't it depression counseling or anxiety therapy or some such thing?

Couples Counseling

You know how everyone tells you that the beginning of your relationship was just a “honeymoon phase?” That eventually it goes away, there’s nothing you can do about it and, in reality, prepare to be disappointed and barely happy for the rest of your life?

Well, they’re wrong.

LGBTQ Counseling

Let’s get right to it: sexuality and sexual orientation have the potential to be serious hot buttons.

It’s not always comfortable to discuss them. And often not with people close to us.

PTSD & Trauma

When it comes to PTSD treatment, trauma therapy, and sexual abuse treatment, conventional counseling wisdom says you have to painstakingly “process” (or somehow relive your trauma) in order to heal. I disagree. Let me show you an easier way…

Religious Trauma

I am, in no way, anti-religious or anti-spiritual; all are welcomed in my practice and given full respect. However, there are an increasing number of people who are seeking help for what is now recognized as religious trauma.

Men's Issues

We receive an unlimited number of messages suggesting — and even demanding — who we are to be in order to fulfill our gender roles. But who made up these gender obligations? Who are we pleasing by conforming to them?

So,who areyou?

You are
straight, gay,
bi, questioning,
single, coupled,
or unsure of any
of the above.

You are
religious, spiritual,
atheist, agnostic,
or dealing with religious

All are welcome
and embraced.

I provide a welcoming, supportive, non-judgmental, upscale, and - dare I say - enjoyable environment for you to open up and feel comfortable in.
