Hi. I’m Peggy. I am an LPC in the Great State of Texas and have extensive experience working in the mental health field. I am a United States Navy veteran and a retired federal civilian employee. These life experiences have helped to shape who I am – a straight forward, authentic person. I’m task oriented in that I believe if you voluntarily reached out for a counselor, there’s probably a reason. So let’s get to work. On the other hand, I also believe that sometimes life events can seem overwhelming in the moment and you just need someone to talk to, not to fix anything, just someone to listen. I’m that person as well. I wish I could press a button to fix whatever is going on in your life, but we all know that’s not possible. This journey is yours to take, but you don't have to go alone. As a member of your team. I promise I’ll walk beside you, encourage you, and be your biggest ally. Although it may not always seem like it, just remember – you’ve got this!

I am licensed in Texas with 4 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, & coping with life changes. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey. Life brings us many challenges, and often times we feel depressed, angry, bitter, confused or even anxious. The beauty of life is that it gives an opportunity to review, reflect and reform our own stories so we can keep pushing through our adversities. No matter what age, race, creed or status, healing comes from the support of someone being able to help you take the very first step to recovery. When we are able to take very first step towards our healing, we find peace, joy, and forgiveness again. As a passionate counselor, I believe that clients have the ability to choose how to resolve their own problems and can make their own decisions with my assistance as a facilitator. The use of my techniques enable you to use the resilient power you have to create the change you desire. I believe that a client’s self-awareness, thought processes, strengths and talents, and ability to make positive life choices are the keys to developing self-direction and independence. I use a collaborative approach to counseling that integrates techniques and methods from the following counseling theories: Solution-Focused Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I also provide Christian-Based counseling with these techniques and methods based on client's request. All of these techniques will provide methods to solve problems utilizing the client’s own strengths to meet their needs. Occasionally other approaches will be used such as role-playing and guided imagery when deemed appropriate. As apart of my counseling journey, I am also a school counselor. I have been in education for the past 15 years and have learned to understand, empower, and help support tools and strategies for our youth. Recently recognized as a 2022 American School Counselor of the Year Finalist, apart of my work in this role is to help our teens grow socially, academically, and behaviorally at home, at school, and with peers. Our life is a story. Each day, each moment in time, adds to the pages of our story. The beauty of life is that it gives us the ability to rewrite our own stories no matter our age, race, background, or status. Though we can’t change the past, I would love to help you as your therapist rediscover your resilience, passion, and mostly importantly self love to get through the next chapter in your life.

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

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

While many psychologists in Frisco 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.

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

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

Frisco 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 Frisco 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 Frisco 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.

If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 75033 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your Frisco 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 Frisco.

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 Frisco 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 Frisco 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 Frisco, 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.

Frisco 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.
