Lara Proctor

(MS, LPC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who has been practicing for the past 4 years in Dallas and Corsicana. I began my career in Early Childhood Education, receiving my undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University. I taught for 10 years in Waco, Garland and California. As an educator, I had many years of experience working with children, adolescents, parents and families.

I received my Masters in Counseling from Texas A&M - Commerce and have worked with children, adolescents and adults on a variety of issues, such as autism, OCD, marital issues and grief in Psychology offices in Dallas and as a volunteer School Counselor in DISD. I am currently a Certified School Counselor, a Nationally Certified Counselor and a Licensed Professional Counselor. As a therapist, I strive to develop an environment where my clients feel free to express their thoughts, feelings, desires and goals in a warm, trusting, non-judgmental relationship. I will work with you to help you learn about yourself so that you can make lifelong changes in order to have a more fulfilling and happier life.

Taking the first step to ask for help can be the hardest, but it can also change your life in so many meaningful ways.

I look forward to knowing you and helping you on your journey to wellness.

Written by M.E. on Jan 08, 2019 after counseling with Lara for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and anger management

Mrs. Proctor was very helpful. It is really nice to get advice from someone who doesn't even know you personally. That way I know that whatever she says isn't biased. I loved that she was relatable and understanding. Very good communicator. Though I will part from BetterHelp for now because of financial needs, I know when I return I will definitely come back to Mrs. Proctor.

Lara is such an AMAZING person. She listened to me all the time no matter how stupid I sounded. She always knew the right things to say honestly I can say that if I had not done this I would not still be married today so I am very thankful.

Honest review, Lara Proctor is great. I can't think of a better match for my therapist. I know I pay her to talk to me, but I feel like she really cares and that means a lot to me.

Lara has been great. She has great advice and is unbiased and neutral to the situation, which is what I need. She answers in a timely manner and even checks on me quite frequently when she hasn’t heard from me. I would absolutely recommend her services to anyone struggling.

Lara is responsive and in tune with my needs. My experience with her is exactly what I needed in my troubled time. I have already and will continue to recommend Lara and BetterHelp to my friends and colleagues. Thank you!
