About Me

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 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.

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.

Written by C.A on Mar 28, 2017 after counseling with LaDonna for 4 days on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

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.
