EYERUSALEM “E” MULATU, LCDC, LPC, CCTP
DIRECTOR, Meadows Outpatient Services-HOUSTON
Originally from Ethiopia, Eyerusalem Mulatu was raised in Houston, Texas. She did her undergraduate work at Lamar University, earning a BS in psychology with a minor in criminal justice. She also holds a master’s in education from Texas Southern University and a master’s in business administration from Texas Woman’s University.
A licensed chemical dependency counselor, licensed professional counselor, and certified clinical trauma professional, Mulatu has held positions as a counselor, lead therapist, and residential supervisor. She’s worked in inpatient, residential, and outpatient settings that serve dually diagnosed patients. Her more than a decade of experience in the field also includes supervising a residential facility for survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse, along with working with executive clients, commercial airline pilots, and members of the NFL to bring awareness to mental health and substance use addiction. She has also worked with clients in private practice via telehealth.
Mulatu always had a passion for connecting with people, learning their stories, and finding out how she could be of aid. A month after graduating college, she began working in a residential facility for women who grew up in dysfunctional homes, often abused sexually and struggling with substance abuse addiction, mental health, and legal issues. Many of them were working on rebuilding their lives, and it helped Mulatu discover her purpose. From there, she continued to grow professionally in order to empower her clients, heading up Meadows Behavioral Healthcare’s Texas Virtual IOP. In 2023, she was named director of The Meadows Outpatient Center-Houston, overseeing our newest location in the Lone Star state.
Mulatu shares her home with her significant other and is actively involved in the community, volunteering with children at a local church. Downtime is filled with hiking, water activities, self-care, trying new local restaurants, and traveling internationally as well visiting family in Seattle and Texas.

Our Partial Hospitalization program (PHP)
A partial hospitalization level of care is ideal for those who require stabilization and a safe space before transitioning to an intensive outpatient program (IOP). Average length of stay in our PHP spans four weeks, with an option to extend if deemed clinically appropriate. Program hours are increased at this level of care to allow for a focus on regulation in preparation to step down to our IOP. While programming is tailored to the individual’s needs, those in the partial hospitalization program routinely have 1-2 individual sessions each week, weekly psychiatry sessions, weekly family recovery virtual sessions, and neurofeedback sessions as needed.
PHP Level of Care Includes:
- 4-week length of stay (with option to extend)
- Programming 5 days per week, 5-6 hours per day
- Focus on stabilization, safety, and regulation
- Case management
- Preparation for IOP level of care
Group and one-on-one therapy is essential to our program, but we know that healing also happens through other avenues. That’s why we employ a wide range of methods and holistic options to ensure a well-rounded treatment experience that incorporates the mind, body, and soul.
We use innovative therapeutic techniques to identify and treat the underlying trauma of addictive and dysfunctional processes to help people find hope and healing. Convenient, comprehensive care is available.
