I have been a practicing Social Worker for nearly 30 years in the DFW area. In addition to my practice experience, my 20 years of experience as a faculty member at a local university allows me to empathize and support young adults who may be transitioning from college to work. I also have extensive experience working with families of all ages who have difficulties with stress and communication. I specialize in working with individuals and families to heal and join together to become healthy, whole members of their homes and communities. I believe I encourage others to successfully navigate what can often be a difficult life path. I use cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy, & talk therapy. I use solution focused methods and educate clients on how to use that will help develop long term success. I believe the relationship between therapist and client is a working team that begins with assessing the situation, setting goals, and developing a plan. I can help any person who has difficulty with relationships at home or work. I am available for individuals who feel emotionally overwhelmed and misdirected. My passion is helping others help themselves. I look forward to working together to help you navigate life. Once you have selected to work with me, I will contact you within 24 hours to get started. I will likely contact you sooner than that. However, if it is an emergency, please follow the guidelines indicated for clients of BetterHelp. Call 911 if you believe you are in a crisis situation. Again, I look forward to working with you.

I am licensed in the state of Texas with three years of professional counseling experience. I have 30+ years of teaching and coaching. Therefore, the license does not indicate my abilities. I am also currently being trained in EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing), a therapy that increases success in overcoming many problems including trauma, PTSD, and emotional dysregulation. Though still in training, I am allowed to use EMDR (according to the international board - EMDRIA). I will explain the therapy in detail to any client who is interested. However, that is not the only approach I use. My approach includes family systems, cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral, and solution focused therapies. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, depression, addictions, self harm, relationships, family conflicts, parenting and so much more. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming your challenges.

21 years of experience

I often reflect back to the period of time when I decided to enter the field of psychology and counseling.  There were many life challenges along the way that extended a hand in my decision to pursue a career in the world of behavioral health.  I have spent the last 21 years growing as a therapist in my work with adults dealing with stress and anxiety, depression, addiction recovery, trauma and abuse, relationship or family issues, conflict resolution, and adjustment to life changing events.  My professional experiences in outpatient and inpatient settings have seasoned me in most behavioral health conditions, to include crisis assessment, intervention, and stabilization. Despite these experiences, I embrace the importance in malleability of mind and perspective. I remain as much a student today as I was one to two decades ago and have resigned to the conception of life-long learning and personal growth.  My Approach
 Feeling emotionally imbalanced can often feel frightening and overwhelming, worsened by the notion that you are going at it alone.  My approach is action-oriented, thought challenging, but reliably embraced with humility, empathy, compassion, and a human level connection. As a therapist, I do believe that there is much to be said on the art of motivation.  There is even more to be said on inspirational influence and forming an alliance with purposefulness.  Through an integrated and holistic approach to care, my hope is to help you find peace in accepting the things you cannot change; the inspiration, motivation, and courage to change the things that you can; and the insight to understand this difference. Being a part of someone else's healing process, or "search for meaning" is an extraordinary experience and certainly a privilege.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Cockrell Hill 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 Cockrell Hill 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 Cockrell Hill 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 Cockrell Hill, 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 Cockrell Hill 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 can also try a Cockrell Hill 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 Cockrell Hill 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 75211 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 Cockrell Hill 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 Cockrell Hill 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 Cockrell Hill, 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.

Cockrell Hill 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.
