I take a holistic, open minded, therapeutic approach with all my clients. I wish the best outcome that you can imagine. Every treatment plan will be based on your needs - your goals. I do not believe that we all fit nicely into the same box. Everyone is an individual and walks their own path, that includes me. I have a very open view of religion and metaphysics. I can provide Spiritual Guidance when requested. I am working on a degree in Metaphysical science and on becoming an ordained minister. I do not believe in one religion over the other. I believe in helping you on your spiritual journey.

20 years of experience as a mental health therapist

In our life's journey change is inevitable. With intentionality, and reflection we can move towards growth. As a counselor I seek to support my clients to move towards, healing, self discovery, and living a whole hearted life. My therapeutic approach is a person centered approach. I believe that all can benefit from the process of therapy, and that the therapeutic process can provide a grounded centeredness and strength to support us through the challenges that all will face. Healing and growth can further happen in the context of relationships, and I believe the therapeutic relationship can provide that space. In my work as a clinician my focus has been in supporting individuals, as they move through milestone moments. As a clinician my background in attachment theory, neuroscience, and trauma informed practices are part of my approach. I use a narrative therapy, mindfulness, interpersonal psychotherapy, solution focused approaches, and expressive arts in my practice. I have over twenty years of experience as a clinician. As a therapist my area of expertise has been in the areas of providing women support through the movement of life's journeys, providing parenting support, and to also to providing support to new parents and parents of special needs children. I offer my clients a safe, nurturing, and reflective space to heal and grow. Supporting clients in working towards decreasing symptoms of depression and anxiety, working through relationship challenges, healing from trauma, are areas of my expertise.

30 years of experience as a mental health therapist

In the era of Covid 19, social unrest, and financial strain people are more stressed than they have been in recent history. Life can change us for the better, or for the worse. We can become stuck. While we have labels for these things, the bottom-line is we get stuck and we can become unstuck. I am s seasoned helper who has been in the mental health field for over 30 years. I have worked with all age groups and diagnoses. I have worked in hospitals, clinics and in the community. I have a strong background in addiction, trauma and life transitions. I have made a life of breaking out of the boxes and labels, professionally and personally. I am well versed in clinical and professional approaches; but my strengths are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing/Change Theory, Solution-Focused Therapy and EMDR. But, I believe there are many ways to getting unstuck found in ones own personal curiosity, creativity, and experiences. I am interested in those I serve being able to describe their experiences in the own words, through their own expression, and though their own lived experience. I believe a person's history is social, cultural, spiritual, and emotional. I believe healing comes from a personal journey and making sense of things. Let's work together as collaborators!

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

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

While many psychologists in Evant 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 a BetterHelp therapist 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). 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 Evant?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Evant 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.

Evant 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 Evant 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 Evant 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 TX, 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 76525 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site.

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

Before seeing your Evant 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 Evant.

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 Evant 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 Evant 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 Evant, 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.

Evant 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.
