Sean Sparks

(MS, LPC)

About Me

Awareness. It is often what is missing when you are feeling overwhelmed, out of control, or trapped by negative patterns in your life.

I will work with you to help you grow your awareness, to understand the factors within yourself, others, and the world around you that are contributing to your unhelpful thoughts, feelings, and actions. By collaborating together to reveal these hidden factors, we will bring processes and tools into sessions that are useful for helping you to set goals that move you toward greater balance in your life.

In addition to my MS in Counseling from the University of North Texas, my earlier education obtaining my BA in Social Sciences from UNT strongly influenced my cultural and community focused approach with clients. I identify as an ally for communities who can sometimes have difficulty finding safe, non-judgmental therapeutic resources, such as those with concerns with LGBTQIA identity, sexual health, and alternative or ethical non-monogamous relationships.

As someone who has learned to achieve while living with ADHD, and who has long been a social ally against oppression, I can appreciate what it is to struggle in situations that seem stacked against you. In every relationship I strive to be a resource to the voiceless, the misunderstood, and anyone who might hesitate to get help out of fear of judgement.

Additional specialized skills I can bring into sessions when appropriate include meditation, dream analysis, creative art, transpersonal analysis, socratic dialogue, and positive habit reinforcement.

Sean is great at listening. He’s respectful and genuine. He creates a safe, nonjudgmental space that makes the session more helpful. He’s also open to working with you which has been extremely helpful and encouraging.

Sean just gets it. Me. I've never met with a counselor who is not afraid to speak up. Advise. Give constructive criticism.
