I love helping people. I believe that life is full of changes, those transitions can present emotional and psychological challenges that can be better addressed in a supportive and nurturing counseling environment. I believe that brokenness, challenges and life transitions can be restored when an individual partners with a trustworthy and compassionate professional to rediscover strength and acquire skills to deal with these transactions and unlock the treasures that lie within. There, we find the Essence of our Joy. I am passionate about family, therapy and helping others. My innate compassion for people and my clients compels me to whole heartedly focus on mentally liberating individuals. I am a Texas girl who loves laughing, good food, the sun on my skin and running shoes on my feet! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a MS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and a National Certified Counselor but my most important credential is a heart for helping people, and I would love to help you too!

I've been a professional counselor for over 31 years working at several very interesting locations during my career. I spent over 12 years at the National Institutes of health serving a wide spectrum of clients from some of the leading health researchers in the world to the hardworking staff workers from executive administrators to cafeteria custodians. I was the senior staff EAP representative and crisis counselor during the attack on the Pentagon on 9/11/2001, the anthrax attack in Washington D.C. two weeks later and the D.C. Sniper about a year later. Subsequently I gained a tremendous amount of first line experience assisting people with stress and trauma as well as the milieu of issues facing any employee of such a large institution. After a 12 year stint at the NIH I was recruited to work with DOD and the United States military around the country assisting soldiers and their families with the complicated relationship and individual stress brought about by multiple combat deployments to Iraq, Afghanistan and other areas on conflict in the world. My experiences have given me a tremendous amount of training and skills honing toward helping people deal with a multitude of issues. I know how difficult it can be to ask for help and I applaud you for your courage in coming to this site to seek a solution to issues in life which can indeed be challenging. I look forward to working along with you on your journey of change and personal improvement. My style is relaxed and accepting with the aim of providing my client a safe and non-judgmental venue with which to explore their current situation. My approaches are somewhat eclectic using motivational interviewing to center on specific areas of conflict or distress and applying various modes of cognitive behavioral therapy to help effect change .

Together we can conquer the mental challenges that may be preventing you from living your best life.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and I provide assistance and real-life practical tools for issues that affect daily life management and help motivate individuals and couples to reach their full potential. Using cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and other evidenced-based practices we can learn to change the way we think, which changes the way we feel, which in turn changes the way we view and handle tough situations. As a therapist, I am very straightforward. I will get in the trenches with you helping you confront the tough issues while encouraging you to move forward in the process. I would love to help you make lasting changes to get the desired results in your life and relationships. Oh, unfortunately, one of my children broke my magic wand so you will have to do the work.

Hello! My name is Rhonda Pupella, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in central Texas. I have been providing therapy for over 15 years. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, caregiving and self-esteem issues. I am a firm believer that we are beings who want healing in all aspects of ourselves and our life, which can create tension between our current situation and the changes we want or need to make. Often, we don't know how to make lasting changes. That change struggle is often too difficult to face without strong support and the realization that someone understands, supports and affirms your ability to learn new coping skills. My counseling approach is educational, and we begin with where you are emotionally now. I value treating everyone with respect and kindness. It takes courage to make changes, even positive ones. If you are ready to begin learning how, I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working together!

I work with individuals, couples, and families. I provide bilingual (Spa/Eng) and multicultural counseling for people of diverse races and beliefs. As a therapist, life coach of more than 10 years, yoga practitioner, and former attorney, I bring a wide range of experiences to counseling, including the art of negotiation with couples and families, and the practice of self-understanding, self-awareness, and inquiry with individuals. I’m primarily a cognitive behavioral therapist — I help you explore your thoughts and core beliefs to gain clarity and find solutions. I also facilitate observation of narrative and finding meaning in your experiences and the complexity of life. People usually seek my services when they are at a crossroads, are dealing with relationship conflict, difficult family dynamics, emotional turmoil, lack of clarity, anxiety, anger, or want to overcome past trauma. I have been seeing around 35-40 individuals per week in my private practice and with the mental health department of an organization. I look forward to meeting you and talking to you further.

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

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.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Hunters Creek Village 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 Hunters Creek 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 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 Hunters Creek 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.

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.
