Hello there. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist with over 6 years of experience working as a psychotherapist and over 10 years of experience as a life coach. I have primarily worked with clients dealing with various concerns including depression and anxiety, self-esteem/self-worth, relationship issues, sexual orientation, and career challenges. I also aid in helping people deal with trauma from racial oppression and violence. My counseling style is direct and caring, with you as the leader and expert of your experience. I meet you where you are and begin with strengthening the foundation you will build on. Whatever ideations, thoughts, and beliefs you currently have will be used and/or challenged in an environment that allows you to safely, freely, and openly express them. Aside from safety concerns, this is a completely judge free zone no matter the culture/subculture, gender, pronoun, or race. I create and uphold an environment of MUTUAL respect of boundaries and you are able to go at your pace. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, experiential, psychodynamic, and motivational-interviewing which would be tailored to your needs. I believe in elevating the personal power within and guide you towards accessing that. Living in truth looks different for everyone. Let's find out what it looks like, for you!

Hi!!! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Rehabilitation Counselor who works closely with individuals dealing with disability, chronic pain, work injury, adjustment to life changes, traumatic brain injury, negative self-talk, anxiety, depression and stress.

When seeking to find appropriate coping strategies, an integrated approach is used to assist the patients in developing strategies that work for them in everyday situations.

I believe we are created for a purpose and I strive to help patients challenge negative thought patterns and replace them with what God says about who they are, while finding practical coping strategies. I love to help couples find ways to reengage with one another, find creative ways to appreciate one another and to better communicate! Can't wait to get started with you on attitude change, life change and most importantly, heart change! Let's do this!

"Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy – the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” Brené Brown At one time or another, we all go through difficult and painful times of struggles, challenges, darkness, more questions than answers, loneliness. For some it looks like depression and/or anxiety. For others, it presents itself through an eating disorder, substance abuse or other type of addiction. Some people retreat inward and isolate, believing no one would understand them if they tried to explain how they feel, or they get stuck in believing they would be judged if they shared their deepest thoughts and feelings. I am here to walk the journey towards healing with you. My clients have described feeling the atmosphere and energy of our sessions as safe, nonjudgmental and that they feel a genuine sense of me caring about them as an individual. I am humbled and grateful that my clients experience this, as this is exactly the message that truly comes from my heart. It is the reason I work in the field. It is my passion, and it helps me fulfill my sense of purpose in life. My hope is that as we walk together on your road to recovery and healing, you will have the freedom to explore what your struggles are and where they come from, and I will help you understand patterns of thoughts, beliefs, behaviors, and relationships that are keeping you stuck in pain. I believe this process will leave you feeling empowered to live your best life. My primary specialties are mood disorders, trauma, women’s issues, family of origin issues and current family relationship concerns. My primary modalities are CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), Psychodynamic, and DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy).

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Highland Park 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 Highland Park 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 Highland Park 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 Highland Park, 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.

You can also try a Highland Park 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 Highland Park 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.

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 Highland Park 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 Highland Park 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 Highland Park, 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.

Highland Park 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.
