Hello! My name is Martha and I am an LPC licensed in the state of Texas. I have a Master of Science degree in Psychology from Texas Wesleyan University(2007). My experience in the mental health field is over 17 years consisting of case management, crisis intervention, counseling, psychiatric emergency room assessments and diagnosis. I would describe my counseling style as one of being caring, compassionate, trustworthy, genuine and ethical. My favorite therapeutic approaches are Person-centered and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and feel that they lend themselves well to helping with most issues. I believe that it's very important to allow you to learn and identify the skills you need to work on the issues you are experiencing throughout therapy sessions and long after therapy sessions end. My hope for you is that you will feel comfortable discussing any topics of concern and that you are able to gain the knowledge you need to help you through this time in your life. I look forward to working with you and thank you for putting your trust in me!

After my children graduated from high school, I decided to focus on my career as a therapist. Throughout my years as a school counselor, I discovered a deep sense of fulfillment in blending clinical work with individuals and groups, community outreach, program development, and evaluation.

Building strong therapeutic relationships is at the core of my practice, and I approach each session with a trauma-responsive and non-judgmental mindset. I have worked with individuals of various ages who have encountered stress, anxiety, depression, adjustment issues, life changes, grief, and trauma. I believe in meeting people where they are and tailoring my approach to suit their specific needs. My counseling license is issued by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors, and my license number is LPC #79150. I have actively contributed to the counseling profession and previously served on the Board of Directors for the Texas Counseling Association.

First, I would like to acknowledge your effort in reaching out to seek guidance. You have taken the first step in improving yourself. I understand it is hard when our initial expectations of how our life "should be" does not match what is happening in the moment. There are many factors that affect our thoughts of what "success in life is." Many times, there are societal, familial and perhaps individual expectations that we feel obligated to fulfill. Sometimes these thoughts of a "normal" life interfere with what our true happiness could be, and this does need to be explored. I would be happy to speak with you in order to better understand your perspective of your present situation. Essentially, I would like to assist in creating different thoughts of how you can feel more fulfilled in your life. I specialize in helping people find the balance that they seek. I focus on identifying potential core root beliefs that sometimes interfere. This often occurs as people have the tendency to internalize thoughts that are negative. This happens most frequently when we feel that we do not achieve or are incapable of achieving the goals or status we think we should have in life. Learning to challenge ingrained negative thoughts is the key in moving forward. With this we can focus on giving ourselves credit for growth not previously accepted as well as creating a level of self-awareness that is free from idealistic perspectives. I look forward to connecting with you in order to begin this process. I have been a licensed clinician for over 20 years and have extensive experience working with a diversity of client ages 18-99. Services include individual, marital, and family therapy. Change your perspective and open your world up to the shift that will allow you to be free! Specialties include CBT, DBT, mindfulness, and transformation.

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

Before seeing your Hickory Creek 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 Hickory Creek.

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 Hickory Creek 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 Hickory Creek counselor can be dependent on your process.

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 Hickory Creek, 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 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.
