Hello, my name is Deborah but most people call me Debbie. I have been a Professional Counselor for 20 years and have had the opportunity to work with many interesting people so far. One of the things that is very important to me is our professional relationship. Together we will work on building trust and respect for one another so the environment is one where you feel completely safe sharing any thoughts, feelings, or ideas that you have. I will be on this journey with you, guiding you and supporting you the whole way. The goal is for you to get to that place where you have the skills, tools and thoughts to help you get to where you want to be and make your life as fulfilling as you choose. Everyone is unique and that is part of the beauty of the process, no person is like you and every thought you have is yours and any feeling is one that you can be comfortable owning. We will work at a pace that you are comfortable with and you will be challenged and given HW if this something that helps. To avoid being overwhelmed, we will be organizing each issue and tackling each bit at a time until pieces of the puzzle begin to start fitting together. I have experience working with family issues, depression, anxiety, panic, self-esteem, marital difficulties, loneliness, abandonment, trust, behavioral issues and more. I want you to know that what you say and feel is very important and you deserve to be heard, you matter. You also deserve to have that life you want. I can give you tools to work with and I can help you use them as needed for everyday life. I am eclectic in that I use different treatment modalities as needed. I may use Client Centered and then move to Behavioral Therapy and then on to Cognitive Restructuring as needed and it all comes down to what works best for you and where we are in the process. As we move forward, we will continue to work on the next hurdle until the road becomes more manageable. Every road has bumps along the way but it is how you learn to control the bumps that makes you in control of the ride. Life is YOUR journey and YOU will be in the driver’s seat. You can do this. I look forward to meeting you!

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Highland Village 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 Highland Village 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 Village 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 Village 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 Highland Village?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Highland Village 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.

Highland Village 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 Highland Village 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 Village 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.

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

Before seeing your Highland Village 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 Highland Village.

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 Highland Village 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 Highland Village 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 Highland Village, 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.

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.
