Thank you for reviewing my profile. Hopefully you’ll find my experience and skills are what you seek to address your concerns. In my years as a psychotherapist and working and helping others I realize it takes much courage to open your life to someone you don’t know so, if this is your first psychotherapy experience, I congratulate you on taking this first step towards achieving the life you want to live. Throughout my career I've provided services to all ages and many varied populations, including children, teens, adults, families and couples. My experience draws on evidenced based and solution focused interventions to aide clients in working through mental health and behavioral challenges to achieve a higher quality of life. By helping clients to gain insight to causes, blocks and triggers of emotional distress, other options can be discovered to mental, spiritual and physical well being leading to a healthier life style. I also serve in the Men's and Couples ministry at my church and I am the author of the book, Escape from Insanity Illusions and Lies, that's available on Amazon. As a martial arts instructor I utilizes exercises and techniques of Tai Chi to help others manage stress more effectively and achieve balance in their lives.

My goal is to help others grow, regain peace, joy, and healing in their lives by providing nonjudgmental counseling, empathy, encouragement, and support to achieve wellness. I believe in working collaboratively with you to help you define the tools needed to overcome obstacles, deescalate situations, make better choices and negotiate positive outcomes to be the best you can be. My approach is partnership. The client and therapist decide together what are the major issues and how to work through them together. Please be aware working on emotional issues can be painful and you may feel even worse as you confront your past and present conflicts as you journey towards wellness. During the therapeutic process you will identify troubling situations, be more aware of thoughts, emotions, and beliefs about problems, identify negative and inaccurate thinking and reshape negative or inaccurate thinking by learning coping mechanism so you can move toward a healthy and fulfilling life. I am a dedicated, knowledgeable eclectic counselor using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Emotional Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Client-Centered Therapy, EFT and Mindfulness. I have experience working with adults (21 - 75 years old) from diverse socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. I have assisted those struggling with anxiety, depression, substance abuse, relationships issues, domestic violence, home/school/work concerns, SI/HI, anger, bullying, trauma, and crisis intervention. Prior to making a life changing decision to help others I worked over twenty-five years in the corporate world as an Executive Assistant. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (2001) and Master of Arts in Counseling (2004) from Webster University in St. Louis, MO. I began my career in Social Services in 2006 and became a Licensed Professional Counselor in 2012 in Missouri and received her Texas license in 2017. I am a current member of the American Counseling Association (ACA) and Texas Counseling Association (TCA).

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Hutchins 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 Hutchins 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 Hutchins 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).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Hutchins, 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 or medication as treatment, or perform psychological assessments and other psychiatric services.

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, post traumatic stress disorder, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Hutchins above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist.

You can also try a Hutchins 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 Hutchins 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.

Hutchins 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 Hutchins 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 Hutchins 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. 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. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 75141 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 Hutchins 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 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 Hutchins.

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 from a therapist. A Hutchins 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 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 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 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 Hutchins, 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.

Hutchins 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.
