(LPC, NCC)

About Me

Welcome! I am an independently practicing Licensed Professional Counselor. In addition to my services here, I am also in private practice, working with an array of clients differing in ages and need. My past work experience has included working at Eating Recovery Center of Dallas, in which I treated eating disorders. In addition, I have worked in many schools both in Dallas as well as Detroit. Through private practice, I work with individuals, families and couples, looking to improve their quality of life. I do not believe there is one cookie-cutter approach to working with clients, and I strive to incorporate the best fit of treatment based on the client, their individuality and style. My goal as the therapist is to help bridge your real world with your most ideal future and aspirations. I believe that my clients find me empowering, compassionate and genuine. In turn, I would describe my clients as brave, beautifully hopeful and powerful. Taking the first step towards making a change is the most difficult step but most important. You have found yourself here, and for that, I applaud you.

The structure at BetterHelp has allowed for us, as therapists to better connect with you, as clients. Through the option of video and phone sessions as well as messaging, we feel confident that the therapeutic relationship is further intensified, while allowing for rapid change. Whether you are struggling with day-to-day stressors, intense anxiety, chronic depression, or another issue, rest assured that accessible and effective treatment is available.

I’ve been seeing Faith for almost 2 years. It has been the healthiest therapy I’ve ever been in. I’m learning and working through things about myself and my life that I never knew were possible. She’s given me resources to help on days when we don’t have session, a strong sense of progress and encouragement, and the feeling of talking to a friend. I’d highly recommend Faith to anyone.

I have only been with Faith for two months now, but it feels she knows how to handle the situations I am currently dealing with as I am progressing to become a stronger person emotionally. If anything I hope to recommend her to one of my friends if they ever need the support.

Faith explains things in ways that let me view things from different perspectives. She is a good reality check and normalizes my feelings. She also does a good job of making sure we booth understand what I’m trying to say and what she’s hearing me express. The reflection does help me think back and analyze what I’ve said. She’s very caring and supportive. I feel lucky to have been matched with her.

Faith is so wonderful. I feel like I'm talking to someone who truly understands me. She has been my counselor for about a year and a half now and I can't imagine working with anyone else. She truly cares about me and my journey.

Written by F.A. on Jul 14, 2019 after counseling with Faith for 9 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

I have struggled with debilitating anxiety for as long as I can remember. I've spent most of my adult life thinking about how the fear plaguing me won't matter if I'm dead. I was so tired of fighting it, and hopeless that it would ever get better.

I'm so thankful that I was paired with Faith. She has helped me identify the trauma that is the root of all of my anxiety and has helped me develop and implement coping strategies that have greatly reduced the frequency and intensity of panic attacks. These are things that I will be able to use for the rest of my life, long after I no longer need Faith's support.

Most importantly, she gave me hope. She encouraged me to keep trying. To keep fighting. She told me she was proud of me for being brave enough to even look my fears in the face, and she believed that it would get better.

Faith has literally changed my life.

She is great and she has helped me to learn so much about myself. I am so glad she was assigned as my counselor!

Faith is very supportive and very personable. She remembers small details and uses them to relate to me in ways that make me feel listened to and heard.

Faith is the angel that is at my shoulder guiding me through life. She's my paramour. My ray of light. My peace.

Written by T.A. on Dec 10, 2018 after counseling with Faith for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and bipolar disorder

Faith is amazing! I’ve tried many forms of therapy before and never felt like I got much out of it. I think the way BetterHelp matches a client to a counselor via a survey has a lot to do with that. They have a much larger pool of counselors than one office or even one city, so finding a good match is more likely, with less time and resources spent. As for Faith, she definitely knows what she’s talking about. She really takes the time to process what I share with her and respond with feedback that actually makes me change the way I think and feel, which is exactly the point of therapy, so I’m beyond pleased and highly recommend Faith to anyone struggling with day to day life or just the overall big picture of it.

Written by S.H. on Nov 20, 2018 after counseling with Faith for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Faith is absolutely amazing. She is what I could only dream of for a counselor. She has given me the tools and resources to find purpose in my life again. I can't thank her enough.

Written by J.A. on Oct 26, 2018 after counseling with Faith for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, and career difficulties

I have found Faith to be a great counselor to work with on combatting my anxiety. She is very compassionate, patient, has given me many new techniques to use and shed valuable insights that I had been missing. Thank you again!

Written by N.A. on Oct 01, 2018 after counseling with Faith for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, and career difficulties

Faith is so sweet, personable, and funny. Talking to her feels less clinical than counselors and psychs I've talked to in the past. I highly recommend her if you want to feel like you're talking to a super supportive and understanding friend. One who is, of course, trained to guide you to think more positively.

Written by F.R. on Jul 16, 2018 after counseling with Faith for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, intimacy-related, self esteem, and bipolar

Faith is super easy to talk to and is very understanding, I’ve been going through the hardest couple months of my life so far and after 4 or 5 sessions, I feel like she has helped me through it so far.

Written by K.A. on May 31, 2018 after counseling with Faith for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, and anger

She’s a great listening ear. Works well with my schedule. And a blessing in this time in my life

I'm two sessions in and I feel like she's already helping me a lot. She keeps me on track and gives me real life goals to meet.

Written by A.N. on May 10, 2018 after counseling with Faith for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, and sleeping

Faith has been exceptional! Easy to talk to. Very understanding. Has helped a great deal in a short time. It's been an unexpectedly pleasant experience.

Written by L.I. on May 10, 2018 after counseling with Faith for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, intimacy-related, self esteem, and career

Faith has been a lifesaver. Having someone who listens to me and legitimately tries to see me the way I am literally makes me tear up at the end of every session. She respects who I am, and I look forward to every meeting. Faith is the best! Can't say enough positive things.

Written by F.O. on May 08, 2018 after counseling with Faith for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, career, and bipolar

Faith is the best, bottom line. She has changed my life.

Written by D.A. on Apr 27, 2018 after counseling with Faith for 1 month

While working together with Ms. Becker for a month now on Major Depressive Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anxiety and many other issues. I feel like she would say to me in a goodbye farewell note,

"She have watched me flourish through adversity and overcome struggles that would make most individuals choose to give up, but not me. I feel as though she would also say, I have been a beacon of hope and inspiration not only for myself, but for other people I have encountered. Most importantly I am capable of identifying areas where I may have weaknesses and seeks out advice and help from different individuals and utilizes other information resources to assist me in reaching my goals. As an individual I am persistent, dedicated and loyal which are astounding qualities to find in a young person. I am continue to grow on a daily basis and amazes her more with each milestone I have achieved in my life. She would lastly say, she looks forward to seeing more from me as I continue on my journey."

These are ALL the things that Ms. Becker taught me and showed me in many ways then I can explain. She has seen the areas where I have challenged myself and areas where I can do better with the work we have done together. I give her thanks for helping me so much. I would highly recommend her.
