Myles Schutte

LPC, CSAT Candidate

Counseling is a process in which the client and the counselor come to understand and trust one another, work as a team to explore and define present problem situations, develop future goals for an improved life, and work in a systemic fashion toward realizing those goals.

I have worked with clients on a variety of issues and I have specialized in helping those with depression, anxiety, anger, codependency, sexual addictions, and sexual identity issues. I see such issues as symptoms of something deeper and my goal is to work with you to uncover those root issues. I also help those who have experienced sexual or emotional trauma at all levels. I have completed basic training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy to help in single-event, childhood, continuous, and recent trauma. My desire is to help provide a safe place to find real freedom and healing. 

My counseling style is eclectic and an integrative approach. I pull from multiple facets of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). I am currently undergoing training to receive my official certificate for being a certified sex addiction therapist thus making me an Certified Sex Addiction Therapist Candidate (CSAT Candidate).

As a Christian Counselor, I have a unique perspective for those who wish to approach their counseling experience through the lens of biblical truth. Though I am a Christian and work from a biblically informed perspective, my job is not to impose my values onto clients or change their own beliefs. I respect the religious beliefs of all persons and will work with anyone who is ready to work towards individual and relational growth.

Education and Background

After completing my B.A. in Religion at Baylor University, I moved to New Orleans to attend the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary where I studied to earn a Masters in Marriage and Family Counseling.

 

While in New Orleans, I spent my practicum counseling at the seminary working with students and those in the community. In the beginning I spent many hours helping others learn to manage anxiety, depression, and anger issues. However, in 2015 the notorious website Ashley Madison was hacked leaking thousands of stolen user data to the public and outing those who signed up to use the website's service to seek extramarital affairs. As a result, my schedule was flooded with those seeking freedom from sexual addiction. I didn't know much about the topic at first but through classes, books, and different trainings,  I began to better understand the nature of sexual addictions and how to help lead others to freedom. By the end of the year I was leading my first sexual addiction process group. 

It did not take long for me to realize that sex addiction was not just about sex - it's about medicating pain and past hurts. Too many with sexual addictions had experienced incredible pain and trauma in their past. Their addiction was simply a way to help medicate that pain. In 2016 I began to study trauma and its connection to addictions, and I sought training in EMDR therapy to better equip myself to approach my work from a trauma informed perspective. 

After graduating seminary at the end of 2017, I moved back to Houston, TX to begin the task of becoming fully licensed. During my internship I began working at Houston's First Baptist Church in their counseling center where I continued to work with sexual addiction and led multiple sexual addiction process groups. I also worked with those with complex trauma and other behavioral health issues.

In 2019, I followed my friend and former supervisor Huston McComb to begin working for Judah Christian Counseling. 

I enjoy spending time with my family and close friends. I find cooking to be a fun hobby along with video games, reading fiction, and playing music.
