Hi ! My name is Lesley Webb and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, with experience working with adults, children and families. I have an undergraduate degree in Human Development and Family Studies from Texas Tech University, and a Masters of Education in Counseling. I have worked primarily with children and families who have experienced trauma, domestic violence and family communication challenges. I also have experience working with adults and young adults experiencing depression, anxiety and weight/body image issues. I currently spend a lot of my time working with parents of younger children. My approach to counseling is humanistic, client-centered and systems focused. I feel the client is the expert of his/her life and experiences and the counselor role is one of support, clarification and providing time, resources and an outlet for reflection. I work within a systems approach and believe our biological families and the families we create influence who we are. I will create an environment of safety, where you are able to share your experiences with someone who will treat you with respect and dignity. As I get to know you, we will set goals together and adjust based on your desired needs and outcomes. Personally, I have been married for 30 years and have 2 daughters- ages 26 and 18. I enjoy reading and spending time watching movies and traveling.

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

Before seeing your Burkburnett 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 Burkburnett.

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 Burkburnett 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 Burkburnett counselor can be dependent on your process.

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 Burkburnett, Texas 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.

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.
