6 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I have been conducting therapy for a total of six years. I have worked with clients endeavoring through intense trauma, psychological crisis, addiction, anxiety, depression, stress management, unhealthy patterns, self-image, interpersonal relationship issues, and life in general. I have created strong therapeutic relationships with clients from differing socioeconomic statuses, genders, ages, and life-stages. I have run mindfulness training and stress-relief exercises. I continuously aspire to continue my education and sharpen my skills. I practice through a person-centered, integrative, and eclectic perspective. I have received specialized training in EMDR, mindfulness, DBT, sexual trauma, and addictions. I am culturally competent and am an advocate for those who are queer and gender non-conforming. In addition to my experience, I hold a Masters Degree in Counseling, a Bachelors Degree in English and a Bachelors Degree in Radio, Television, and Film. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Nationally Certified Counselor. Therapy and clients ignite and excite me. I am passionate about helping individuals and communities; I love what I do. My beliefs about mental health are an immense part of who I am at my core. It is not a job, it is a calling. You can consider me an emotional guardian and professional secret keeper. In a session, I start with the person, the energy, the issues, intuition, information, and goals. I believe that each client is an individual person and that people are doing the best they can with what they have. I appreciate the resilience and bravery it takes for all clients to envision and practice a better version of themselves. It is like being given the opportunity to watch an inspirational and transformational movie in real time. As a therapist, it is imperative to understand what a person wants, where they come from, what they are struggling with, and what they are looking for. I then use the best of what I know to help; if I don’t know, I research, I ask, and I learn. Change can be demonstrated in any growth, unseen emotional experiences, small and large victories, and behavioral changes. Change is reaching goals and your own idea of your potential, experiencing relief, gaining insight, and the little moments that make that happen. Change is fluid and continuous. Therapy is both a science and an art. In order for change to manifest within therapy, it first takes a strong counselor and client relationship. Therapists should have a disposition that is authentic, present, empathetic, knowledgeable, accepting, patient, and skilled. It takes being the person someone can trust to hold their secrets and guide them in the healing and the development of their best self. In the therapy room, I’m a lot like I am outside of it. I have a tendency to sit with my legs criss-crossed applesauce style in session and I talk with my hands. I’m completely down to lay down with my clients (after asking permission, of course) to teach them deep breathing or practice meditations with them. I’m a visual learner, so I also like to draw pictures when I’m explaining something or teaching a new technique. I believe in the holistic qualities of the healing arts. I believe in therapy that is non-judgmental, humanistic, goal-centered, person-centered, integrative, and eclectic. I believe in authenticity in life and in sessions and I try to practice what I preach on a regular basis. I never assign or expect clients to attempt anything I would not be willing to try myself. I believe in the artistry of therapy and am grateful for the honor and responsibility of sharing moments of people’s lives and stories. I think that humor is one of a therapist’s best tools. I believe in immediacy and presence in sessions. I believe in the power of understanding where you come from and what your patterns are, and also in practicing and creating the life you want for yourself. I believe that therapists and clients are constantly changing and pulsing with life and possibility, and that the therapeutic experience should reflect that creative fluidity. I believe in self-actualization and striving for whatever your yoda-status may be, even while learning to feel peaceful where you are now.

Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, marriage, family issues, or other emotional challenges, feel proud that you have begun your search to find the mental health care services in Lakeview that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing with a therapist.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Lakeview. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders. If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in Lakeview, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Lakeview region and in the state of Texas. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Lakeview or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

There are all kinds of therapists working with clients today across the United States and in the greater Lakeview area in different types of therapy, including:

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

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 Lakeview 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 Lakeview 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 Lakeview 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 Lakeview 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.

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 in Lakeview?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Lakeview 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.

Lakeview 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 Lakeview 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 Lakeview 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 79239 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 Lakeview counselor?

Before seeing your Lakeview 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 Lakeview.

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 Lakeview 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 Lakeview 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 Lakeview, 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.

Lakeview 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 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.
