Hi ! Something in your life has initiated this search for support and you’ve come to the right place. Making that first step at times can seem hard, but look at you already getting the ball rolling! I would love to provide a safe place for you to be able to speak your mind, express yourself and provide you with strategies to help you. Here is a little about me and how I plan to support you: I have a master’s degree in Counseling from Texas A&M San Antonio (2017) and am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas. During my internship in my masters program, I have worked with adults who are attempting to regain custody of their child and help them transition into their new normal once they have their child back in their care. I have spent the last four years working with children who have suffered trauma, abuse and depression. Before that I worked in a residential program for kids who were removed from their parents and endured trauma, abuse and neglect. My therapeutic style involves helping you to arrive at awareness, strategies, and tools that you can begin using to make positive change in your life. Most importantly, we are going to make sure we are making progress on goals that you have for yourself. I will be there to guide you, encourage you and help in anyway I can to help you become your best self.

I have over 11 years of post-licensure clinical experience, specializing in issues such as depression, anxiety, addiction, life transition issues, relationship conflicts, trauma, grief, and general stress management. I believe in providing a safe, collaborative, and client-centered therapeutic space where we can achieve your goals! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor and a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor, offering online therapy throughout the State of Texas . Being solution-focused means that I am eager to get us on the path to finding personalized solutions for the concerns you're facing.

I know starting with a new therapist can be a bit daunting for some, and that’s alright. I do strive to keep this an even-handed, conversational, and productive therapeutic relationship at every turn by remaining open, empathic, available, and non-judgmental. During our time together, it will always be OK to be you.

Welcome, and thank you for viewing my profile page. I am a Christian cis-gender woman and the mother of two adult daughters and one teenage son. I have a Ph.D. in Counseling Education and Supervision, a Master of Science degree in Mental Health Counseling, and a post-baccalaureate certification in psychology specializing in play therapy. I am a licensed professional counselor for the state of TX, a licensed clinical mental health counselor for NC, and an Approved Clinical Supervisor. I am an active National Board of Certified Counselors member, the Chi Upsilon Chi Chapter of CSI, and the National Society of Leadership and Success. As a counseling professional of eleven years, I have the most experience working with children, adolescents, college students, families, couples, groups, individuals, and those in crisis. My theoretical orientations are multiple, including humanistic-existential and solution-focused brief therapy. I use these approaches to look at the whole person while helping clients remain true to themselves (humanistic), increase self-awareness and responsibility, and live more authentic lives (existential) while focusing on finding solutions for issues in the here and now (solution-focused). Regardless of my most often used theoretical approaches, when appropriate, I integrate spirituality and methods that match the needs of each unique client. I enjoy volunteering, reading, singing, working out, and traveling in my free time.

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Dalworthington Gardens 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 Dalworthington Gardens due to a higher cost of living.

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

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.

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.

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.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Dalworthington Gardens 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 Dalworthington Gardens 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 Dalworthington Gardens, 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?

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.
