About the Waco Team
H. Xavier Reveles, MSW, LCSW
Bachelor of Social Work, Texas State University
Master of Social Work, Texas State University
Licensed Clinical Social Worker (License #63430)
Xavier’s focus during therapy is to nurture your process of growth by developing a safe and healthy environment for you. He believes that total involvement and support by your therapist should be available to all individuals, regardless of your financial situation, gender/sexual identity, or life experiences. Your growth and support is the primary factor in counseling.
After working for several years in Corporate America, Xavier realized that his abilities were suited more for the helping profession. He served survivors of sexual trauma and the Spanish-speaking community for five years in Waco, TX. During this time, he discovered his passion of working with individuals on a clinical level and returned to school. While studying for his master’s degree in Social Work, Xavier focused his education on clinical practice and how it directly relates to trauma, mental health, and personality development. His own life experiences have provided him with a wealth of knowledge about men’s issues, anxiety, depression, healthy relationships, feminism, and social justice.
While Xavier is trained in many therapeutic modalities, his vision and voice are influenced by his feminist perspective and a strive to nurture diversity and inclusivity. Xavier most frequently utilizes EMDR, Person-Centered, Solution-Focused, and Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy. He practices with the beliefs that your life is important, your experiences have influenced who you are today, and that you have the power to change your world.
Xavier practices in the Waco offices and also provides online counseling. Xavier is able to provide sessions in either Spanish or English, and offers a variety of options for appointments. He is the co-founder of Get Out Of Your Head Therapy and its subsidiary, Get Out of Your Head Groups.
