In our diverse lives, we encounter a myriad of experiences, from triumphs and setbacks to hurdles and solutions. Throughout this journey, there are moments when we seek guidance to navigate our path and attain the fulfilling life we aspire to. As a professional counselor, I offer my support in such times. To help you assess if I am the right fit for your needs, let me provide an overview of my credentials and expertise: I hold a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology and am a Licensed Professional Counselor holding licenses in multiple states in the US, bringing with me a rich background rooted in a Multiracial Latino/Hispanic heritage. Before my involvement in mental health, I gained valuable insights from working within the court system, offering me a comprehensive understanding of the significance of mental health services for individuals facing diverse challenges and therapeutic needs. My experience extends to working with patients affected by Severely Persistent Mental Illnesses (SPMI) and individuals dealing with behavioral issues within various court programs such as Mental Health Court, Veterans Court, and Drug Court. In my role as a Program Manager in a Mental Health Court program, I specialized in providing trauma and family counseling at a Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility, focusing on adolescents who had experienced trauma. Furthermore, I have accumulated significant experience through several years of practice in private settings, serving a diverse clientele. I have received extensive training in various counseling approaches, with a particular emphasis on EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) for trauma counseling. This specialized technique enables individuals to overcome unresolved trauma and address cognitive barriers that hinder their progress in achieving their desired life. Additionally, I am a certified MRT (Moral Recognition Therapy) provider, offering targeted treatment for substance abuse-related concerns, conduct disorders, and oppositional defiance disorders that may have led individuals into the criminal justice system. I am well-versed in Motivational Interviewing techniques and collaborate with agencies nationwide, fostering multicultural approaches to therapy as a proud Latino/Hispanic/Bilingual mental health professional. In my therapeutic work, I prioritize understanding each patient's unique needs and crafting personalized action plans to address their specific concerns. By employing the counseling approaches mentioned earlier, we delve into the underlying causes of current issues, gaining insights into additional therapy-related requirements for achieving resolution and closure. I firmly believe in adopting a holistic perspective when addressing challenges and employing a systems approach to help clients recognize and appreciate the value of their existing support networks, regardless of their size or initial perception. As a solution-focused counselor, I firmly believe this approach is the most effective in tackling day-to-day difficulties and pursuing long-term goals. I trust this comprehensive overview of my professional background offers you insight into my expertise. If my approach aligns with your needs and proves beneficial, I am excited about the prospect of working together and guiding you on your journey toward sustainable recovery.

I love counseling individuals, couples, and families from all social classes and standings. I am respective of all people and social classes. I embrace respect for multi-cultural counseling. My experience includes service to civilian and military populations for thirty-six years as a military service member and as a federal employee. I am well experienced and prepared to address the concerns associated with the demands of the military and civilian lifestyles. My goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying comprehensive therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. If you're looking for support and guidance through a challenging situation or you are just ready to move in a new direction. I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals. I accept a client’s immediate family relationships and larger social context as being important resources in solving life’s problems. Goals for therapy are always established through collaboration with the client. The overall objective for therapy is always the successful resolution of the problems that are deemed the most important through that collaborative process. I practice an integrated approach. I believe that our initial assessment should indicate to us what would appear to be most likely to help the client achieve individual goals. I practice responsible selection of appropriate theory, model, and interventions. I work from a people-oriented approach, which means that I assist couples and families in organizing their relationships so that resources can be brought to bear on the problems being presented. Techniques that I often employ are instruction and modeling of communication skills, interactive processes, family role-playing, and family sculpting, and between-session interactive assignments. Additionally, homework is a vital part of the therapeutic process. The completion of homework is necessary if the client is to get the most from the therapeutic experience. My training includes family systems theory and models such as Bowenian Family Systems, Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Object Relations Therapy. I also use Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, Reality Therapy and Multi-Model Therapy. I employ Client-centered approaches such as Rogerian and Psychoanalytic type theories and models just to name a few. Rest assured that I believed that you are of great value and it is my intent to help you raise that awareness to a meaningful understanding resulting in increased self-worth! I hold License # 880 as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) with the LPC Board of Examiners, 8631 Summa Avenue, Baton Rouge, LA 70809, and 225-765-2515. I also hold License # LPC005547 as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with the The Composite Board of Professional Counselors, Social Workers, and Marriage and Family Therapists, 237 Coliseum Drive, Macon, GA 31217. I have a Master of Divinity from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary; A Master of Arts in Counseling from Liberty University in Lynchburg Virginia; A Master of Science in Community Counseling with a concentration in Marriage and Family Counseling from Columbus State University in Columbus Georgia; a Doctor of Ministry Degree from Luther Rice Seminary in Lithonia Georgia (Atlanta Georgia); and a PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy from Northcentral University. I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC) with The National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC). I am a clinical fellow with the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT). I am also a graduate of the United States Army Chaplain Family Life Counseling Program.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Pioneer region and in the state of Louisiana. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Pioneer or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns.

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Pioneer area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Pioneer therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Pioneer due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Pioneer may not take health insurance, some in the state of Louisiana may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With a BetterHelp therapist throughout the state of Louisiana you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Pioneer?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Pioneer therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Pioneer therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Pioneer therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Pioneer therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in LA, therapists may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 71266 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Pioneer counselor?

Before seeing your Pioneer therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Pioneer.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Pioneer licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Pioneer counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Pioneer, Louisiana can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Pioneer has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
