Lead Men's Counselor

My name is Quique ("key-kay") Autrey. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor, Lead Counselor at Katy Counseling for Men, and specialize in men's counseling.


I have had my own unique struggles in my own life. I was fortunate to have a great therapist as my guide and made it to the other side of those struggles. And it is a beautiful life on the other side!


My mission and goal in life is to help men make it to the other side of their struggles. Having a counselor who specializes in men's counseling can help you get there.

My Personal Journey 


I was born in beautiful San Juan, Puerto Rico. When I was 2-years old, my family moved to the United States. I started working with men as a professional counselor in 2018. 

One reason I have chosen to go the specialist route versus a more generalist practice is my own life experience. Throughout my life, I have struggled with anxiety, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. 

As a man and for a long time, I thought I could muscle my way through these challenges. I'm a smart guy so I read up on strategies and approaches on how to overcome them. 

It wasn't until it got to a point where things were pretty rough that I reached out to a counselor for men. This started my journey in men's counseling. Working with a therapist as my guide, it not only helped me with my anxiety, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder, but gave me a life where I was able to build a stronger future because of the work I did in therapy. 

Being on the other side of those challenges, I experience an amazing life. And there is no reason why other men can't experience that too.

I'm a men's counselor who through his own personal journey and by professional training, education, and experience, can help be your guide in your journey to the other side of your struggles. Men, it is well worth it!

My Approach to Men's Counseling


Having a therapist as my guide facilitated a transformative experience in my life that put me on the path to becoming a counselor for men. Not only did this help choose my life career path, but it also opened up so many other relational, social, occupational, spiritual opportunities for me that I otherwise would not have had.

My approach to counseling for men can be summed up in four main areas:



I add an optional fifth area for those who may benefit from such an approach. ​I've found that in the right situation, this fifth, optional approach can be a life changer for some:

A man standing, wearing a white t-shirt, navy blue sports coat, blue jeans, one hand in his pocket, the other resting by his side, and he is smiling. He provides counseling for depression katy, tx and therapy for depression katy, tx 77494.


I value the relationship between me and the men I work with. While men may struggle with similar challenges, each man is unique in what will help them overcome their particular challenge.

It's a personal and professional value and top priority to me that in therapy, I help cultivate a strong and supportive relationship with my clients. In this way, I can get to know each of the men I work with and how I can best help them


While understanding your past is an important element in understanding the present, we will not stay in the past. Carl Jung, a renowned therapist, once stated, "I am not what happened to me. I am who I choose to become."

Each man I have worked with has come to therapy with a specific problem. While it's also important to deeply understand the problem, it's equally if not more important to then focus on the solution to that problem.

The approach I take is to understand your past while focusing on your strengths of today. As we focus on these strengths, we can help you build a stronger future together.

Solution Focused

What Are Your Values?

The foundation of our lives are built out of the values we have developed. Therapy for men includes focusing on the solution through the lens of what your values are.

To build on your strengths, it is important that I prioritize your values, what matters most to you in your life, so that together we can help you experience a richer and more fulfilling life. 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)


Out of all the various counseling approaches for men, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is the most researched and studied approach there is. Starting in the 1960's, it is an approach that has been around for a while to be picked apart, examined, and explored.

And what did they find? Researchers have found time and time again a very effective, robust, short-term counseling approach for men. 


CBT is very goal directed in its approach. That fits my counseling style as I am very solution-focused, strength's based, and goal oriented in counseling men. 


Through CBT, we can help you identify and change the thinking habits that have resulted in the challenges that brought you into men's counseling. The benefit of CBT is it is logical, easy to understand, can be readily used in between therapy sessions, and can produce long term change.

Marriage Counseling & Couples Therapy

As a counselor for men, one of the common themes I see in men's counseling is related to their marriage, their partner, or other relationships in their lives. One of the more significant relationships in a man's life is the relationship with his wife, girlfriend, or partner. 

Individual counseling for men is a powerful approach in making a transformative journey. I'll walk step by step and side by side with you as we take this journey together.

There are times where marriage counseling or couples therapy becomes one of the stops on this journey. If you are a man, in a relationship, it may be at some point that we spend time with that important person in your life.

This will never be something that I will push. If I see it as an important process in your overall journey, I may recommend it. But it is important to me that you and your wife, girlfriend, or partner see the benefit of couples therapy or marriage counseling and are motivated to participate. 

The good news is that couples therapy and marriage counseling usually takes less time to see results than individual therapy does. This is especially true if we have spent some time together in individual men's counseling before we start couples therapy or marriage counseling.

Quique Autrey helped me in many ways. He made me feel comfortable enough to talk about my problems. His positive attitude and understanding personality goes a long way. Quique made me realize that therapy isn't just some person telling you what to do. In fact,  therapy is a way to let out all of your emotions that you have been holding in.
