I am a passionate and hopeful Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas who loves to help facilitate change. For 10 years, I have worked with various populations from individual and families, women and children that survived domestic violence, adolescents at risk and those with substance use issues. One treatment approach that I believe in whole heartedly is Cognitive Behavior Therapy, being that our actions are rooted in what and how we think. It is not until a person restructures their thoughts that their actions change. I also think that Positive Psychology is vital to success. Most people seek therapists because there is a problem. I find it beneficial to focus on successes and strengths to get motivated to conquer life's challenges. I can help you identify ways to navigate through this journey of life. The clients who I find to be the best fit for my services are those who meet the following criteria: 1. They are READY & MOTIVATED to change: My ideal clients are those who have recognized the need for change and are highly motivated to take action. They have already taken the first step by seeking my assistance, and they are eager to get started on their journey towards personal growth and development. 2. They INVEST their TIME & RESOURCES in themselves: My clients are committed to investing their time, energy, and resources in their own personal development. They understand that achieving their goals requires effort and dedication, and they are willing to put in the work required to succeed. 3. They DESIRE to move from surviving to THRIVING: My clients have a clear vision of where they want to be and are determined to reach their full potential. They are not satisfied with simply getting by, but instead, they strive to live a fulfilling and meaningful life. 4. They have a GROWTH MINDSET: My clients have a mindset that is focused on growth and improvement. They are not afraid of challenges or setbacks, but instead, they see them as opportunities to learn and grow. They are open to feedback and are willing to make changes to their approach in order to achieve their goals.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Supervisor with over 25 years of experience. I am a fourth-generation Texan/Austinite. I have experience helping clients with anxiety, depression, family problems, relationship issues, and learning issues such as ADHD, Dyslexia, and those on the Autism Spectrum. I also have experience with military veterans and their families, as I have previously worked as a Military and Family Life Counselor. My approach to counseling is integrative. My response to the client is specific to the client's needs and can change within and across sessions. This allows for the incorporation of different theoretical approaches as may be needed for the specific client. Within an integrative counseling approach, I may use a series of cognitive-behavioral methods to bring awareness to the client on how his/her thoughts and behaviors are interconnected. Also, while using an integrated development model (IDM) I can provide structure or “scaffolding” to incorporate new knowledge and skills to advance new learning/awareness for the client. As a counselor, sometimes I may act as a teacher, helping you learn new insight and tools to help you with your goals. Sometimes I may act as a coach or mentor, supporting you and encouraging you to continue to move forward. Finally, I may act as a consultant, giving you feedback on issues that are keeping you from your goals. Overall this is your journey and I will be here to support and guide you to achieve your goals.

I work with adults and adolescents dealing with issues such as career decisions, anxiety, relationship issues, depression and much more. I have experience in inpatient treatment working with a variety of different psychiatric disorders and situations. I have experience in career counseling and helping people of all ages navigate career decisions or changes and it is something I am truly passionate about. In my work with clients I take a client-centered approach, viewing counseling as a collaborative effort on both client and therapist. I also see that most of our issues come from early life and hold us back if we do not address them. If you are looking for someone to work with you, and help you through whatever stage in life you are at then I would love to help.

My ideal client is one who is struggling through an issue and is serious about making significant improvements through hard work. I am aware that life events manifest in many, and often unexpected, ways; Sometimes, the manifestations are changes in personality, mood, relationships, employment, health, and/or the development of various dependencies. I enjoy helping people navigate the stormy seas of trauma, because once the dark skies have cleared, it is truly a joyous day!

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Burleson or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Burleson 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 Burleson 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 Burleson may not take health insurance, some in the state of Texas may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With BetterHelp or clinicians throughout the state of Texas you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Burleson, Texas working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Burleson above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Burleson helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Burleson therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Burleson therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a 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.

A psychologist 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 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 Burleson 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 lot of people in TX, providers 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 76028 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your 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. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist 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. A Burleson 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 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.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy 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 professional 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 Burleson, 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.

Burleson 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?

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.
