About Me

Hello! Thank you, for taking the time to get to know a little about me. My name is Lucretia Reed and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Texas. I have worked in the field of Counseling for over 17 years and enjoy every minute of it. I acquired my counseling degree from Prairie View A&M University. I have a passion for helping anyone in need. My personality and determination ignited a fire in me to reach my goals that is often replicated in the counseling relationship to help my clients reach their goals. I have experience providing services to adolescence, young adults and adults who come from diverse backgrounds. I have worked clients in the foster care system, adults in transitional homes, at risk youth, domestic violence victims, and families in crisis.

My counseling technique is unique in nature. I am genuine, supporting, and honest while also holding my clients accountable to the hard work often required in the counseling process. The cornerstone of my technique is a great rapport fostered by a non-judgmental listening ear. Art Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Family Systems and Person-Centered Therapy are therapeutic approaches used to help meet the needs of my clients.

The decision to seek help is not easy, but when you are ready, I am her to support you.

Lucretia is always on it. She knows my goals and keeps me honest.

Since August, I've been speaking with Lucretia, and she has truly helped me reshape my focus on my relationships and life. She is an absolute joyful soul and incredibly thoughtful and understanding. She has helped me create mantras and tools better navigate my life and those I interact with. Not only do our sessions help me plan for the days ahead, but I can laugh with her about any mistakes or struggles that I've overcome. She challenges me and helps me to feel accomplished with ever-growing success. Her "homework," though it sounds like it wouldn't be fun, allows me to chart my own growth and improvement session to session actively.

I'm truly blessed...

I enjoy my sessions with her because of her genuine personality while she interacts with me. I feel challenged and encouraged during my sessions. And my favorite part is the ability to laugh at myself during the sessions

Lucretia is a wonderful and caring counselor. She is really practical in her approach and dives in with you to help you problem solve. I have benefitted so much from just a short time working together. I appreciate her thoughtfulness and kindness so much!

I’ve had a few interactions with Lucretia since I joined BetterHelp a two weeks ago. She is very comforting and asks very thoughtful and insightful questions. I look forward to more sessions with her. I feel hopeful about my progress.

I have really enjoyed working with Lucretia. She is a very good listener, makes me feel very comfortable and provides good recommendations. I haven't always had all of that with other counselors.

I have only had two sessions with Lucretia, but I already love having her as my counselor. She is a great listener and asks questions that make me change my way of thinking completely. I feel like a different person after I talk to her, like a weight has been lifted off my chest. I also like how she gives me "assignments" which ensures that I don't revert to bad habits and keep working on improving myself even after our sessions are over. I have already recommended Better Help to another friend based on my experience with Lucretia.
