My name is Jason Adams. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas, and a National Certified Counselor. I have over a decade of experience in the field of mental health and currently operate a private counseling practice in Keller, Texas. I primarily work with young adults who are struggling with depression, anxiety, career issues, relationship and marriage problems, and other life challenges. I also work with couples and business professionals. My approach is to develop a relaxed, non-threatening, and non-clinical professional relationship with my clients. I recognize that the first step to a better life is often the most difficult. I help my clients with that first step and the path that follows. Together, we develop individualized strategies that produce results and lead to a more fulfilling life. I completed my master's degree in counseling at Dallas Baptist University. I also have a bachelor's degree in corporate communication, which I utilize in my work with entrepreneurs and business professionals. My professional experience includes stints in business management and various sectors of the field of mental health, including working with mild to severe mental health issues, intellectual disabilities, foster and adoptive families, and victims of abuse. More recently, I've concentrated my counseling practice on dealing with the common, yet significant, challenges that life inevitably brings. If you are searching for direction, contentment, or need help getting past an obstacle in your personal or professional life, I would welcome the opportunity to assist you.

“All the world is full of suffering. It is also full of overcoming.” – Helen Keller I strive to empower my clients to reach their goals and live more meaningful lives. When we are able to find meaning in our suffering, we break free from our self-made prisons and adopt more adaptive perspectives of our problems. Increasing awareness of our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors can be a pathway to this freedom as we uncover the impact that these subconscious domains have on our happiness. It takes a lot of courage to ask for the help that you need, so give yourself credit for taking that first step here. I received my Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from Texas Woman's University in 2012 and my Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from The University of Texas at Arlington in 2006. My Master's thesis explored the relationships between Depression, Resilience, and Coping Strategies. Currently, I conduct extensive research in the area of Health Psychology, focusing on Behavioral Sleep Medicine. To build on my holistic view of treatment, I completed training through the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals to become a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist. Most recently, I have specialized in seeing clients with binge-eating disorder and substance use disorder. I have also been an invited lecturer on the subjects of eating disorders, mindfulness, and meditation. I integrate many theoretical orientations into treatment with emphases on cognitive-behavioral, emotion-focused, and person-centered approaches. Combining different approaches allows me to utilize various therapeutic techniques based on unique needs of individual clients. I also focus on clients' strengths in order to facilitate development of their full potential.

Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Lake City 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.

Lake City therapists 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 Lake City 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 Lake City.

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 Lake City 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 Lake City, 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.

Lake City has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey.

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.
