Throughout life it is expected for one to experience some form of discomfort, stress or trial. However, it is how we respond to those circumstances when they occur that ultimately determine the lasting effect it will have in us and our lives. It is my privilege to walk with you as you go through your journey while instilling hope and optimism in a safe, nonjudgmental, and supportive environment while facilitating healing, positive change and personal growth.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas with over 8 years of experience working as a therapist. I am Certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and utilize Faith Based Therapy (when requested) but my treatment approach is eclectic in nature. I am also a Tobacco Treatment Specialist and utilize Motivational Interviewing while working with clients who are working towards freedom and independence from nicotine and tobacco products. As a therapist, I understand that each individuals needs may require various techniques from different treatment modalities and the importance of ensuring that every effort to accommodate each client is made. I work with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, self-esteem, intimacy, smoking cessation and women's issues while including spirituality, if desired. I also help many people who have experienced physical trauma, sexual abuse and/or emotional abuse.
As a therapist, I would describe myself as empathetic, non-judgmental, direct, honest, and practical. I offer my clients my genuine concern and empathy, combined with my direct thoughts, insights, and recommendations. I can offer you a safe place to sort through what is on your mind and heart. Many people carry a heavy load emotionally and fear letting their guard down with others. One of the benefits of therapy is that I am not in your every day life. I am not here to judge you. I can help you cut through the noise and get to the root of what is truly troubling you and I can walk you through the steps necessary to bring about the change you desire to see in your life.
It is my goal to help you regain the focus necessary to be successful in your lives. I look forward to doing life with you!

LaDonna is so easy to talk to. A lot of times when you come from a religious background you worry that other people who may share the same faith will judge you... but that’s not the case with LaDonna. She’s open, helpful, casual, human and professional. She has checked in with me, isn’t pushy, and responsive. She’s my first therapist and has set the tone for me as far as what to expect in the future. Glad I have her. I’ve struggled job loss, health issues, and more during COVID and all at once and she’s been a huge help in helping me gain my grounding and work on actively being positive. So far it’s been a great experience and I am very appreciative.
LaDonna is great! She asks all the right questions to get to you know and your personal situations. She is quick with responding and I am looking forward to being on this journey with her!
This is the first experience with counseling and I wish I had signed up sooner. The simplicity of talking out issues without judgement is so comforting. Dr. Malone is professional but extremely relatable. Gives real life examples and listens to the words you use and the goals you have. I am so glad I found her and would recommend her a hundred times over.
She is awesome. A great asset to your company.
Ms. Malone was able to connect with me and that has been a difficult thing to accomplish in the past. She includes a spiritual perspective, which further solidifies the connection. I am appreciative of our first interaction and look forward to progressing on this journey!
LaDonna is phenomenal! I just love her. I wish I was her friend or mentee in real life. I know there are so many things to learn from her. Beautiful spirit filled with God. Can’t get any better than her.
LaDonna is doing great helping me with varying issues. I feel so all over the place but she addresses everything and validates, empowers, and motivates me. I tried at least two other counselors before finding her and I'm glad I hung in there because I feel like we really click as far as her understanding of me and my issues. Shes the only one I felt hope of being able to help me. I really appreciate her response times as well. She is very honest and I'm excited to work with her and see what we can accomplish!
LaDonna has helped me work through a difficult moment in my life. She has offered a safe space for me and has never made me feel judged in a negative way. LaDonna responds timely and helps me reflect and learn from what she says. The flexibility of her online services is great for me.
LaDonna is a very supportive counselor. She never made me feel judged or stupid for feeling or thinking anything. I would use her again in the future.
Mrs. Malone is an amazing counselor! I recommend her to anyone who needs some strength, prayer, compassion and knowledge of coping skills! I am forever grateful and will be back to seek more advice from her in the future! Thanks again!
LaDonna has shown to be a very and genuine person, demonstrating an unparalleled level of caring
Great counselor who offers biblical wisdom and direction no matter where you are or what you may be going through.
She was great
Ms. Malone has helped me work through some difficult issues. She is kind, and understanding, and I feel like she pushes me to be better without bringing me down first. I like the platform of contact, as I am much better spoken while writing. (I have suggested this site to several people already! )
LaDonna is great! I've never done counseling before & she made me feel very comfortable to address my issues.
She listens and provides honest feedback without judgement. I feel as if she encourages a plan of action without being critical. She responds promptly, and asks questions that encourage you to think, rather than dwell.
I have only had Dr. Malone for a few weeks but I love how she makes you think and come to your own answers to questions. This is my first therapy experience and I am really getting a lot from it.
She has given me the help I've sought after in very supportive, encouraging, and creative way. She is the best mobile therapist I've ever had, and I've had a few. Thank you.
