Finding a therapist can be one of the most influential and supportive steps you allow yourself to take as you seek to manage mental health conditions, achieve personal growth, and bolster your positivity. A therapist or counselor can help you navigate life’s challenges, applying the principles of counseling psychology and other mental health fields to help you achieve meaningful change. Whether you are working on very serious concerns, like overcoming sexual and physical abuse or other forms of past trauma, or merely want to proactively learn new skills and strategies for self-betterment, a mental health provider can likely help. 

There are many types of mental health professionals. Those who provide counseling services typically have at least a master’s degree, often in social work, clinical mental health counseling, or marriage and family therapy. Many therapy providers also have doctorates, often in clinical and counseling psychology. Most providers with a doctorate carry the title “psychologist” but may refer to themselves as therapists. Those with a master’s degree might go by titles like licensed professional counselor, licensed marriage and family therapist, or licensed clinical social worker. It is worth noting that the terms “counselor” and “therapist” are nearly synonymous and often used interchangeably. 

In almost every jurisdiction, a graduate degree and advanced practical training are required for licensure. For example, a counselor graduating from a master’s-level program has a significant amount of training left before they can practice independently and become a licensed professional counselor. After graduating, they must practice under a licensed professional counselor supervisor, typically for thousands of hours, before being eligible for licensure. 

Many mental health professionals choose to pursue even more training in an area of specialized focus. For example, a practitioner may seek additional training in strategies that help adults identify challenges in their lives or training to help children overcome physical abuse. Therapists often work in both inpatient and outpatient settings, helping both children and adults lead more fulfilled lives.  

If you’re ready to meet with a therapist, Little Elm, TX, has plenty of options to choose from. As you make your decision, you may want to consider online therapy. Online therapists have the same training and credentials as traditional therapists but conduct therapy remotely via phone or computer. The therapists below are all highly qualified online practitioners, and you may want to consider them as you find a mental health professional who works well for you.

10 years of experience as a mental health therapist

As a Licensed Professional Counselor and Marriage & Family Therapist in the state of Texas (USA) I have worked with a variety of individuals (ages 3 and up), people in romantic partnerships, families, and groups from diverse backgrounds. As a mental health professional I have had the honor of providing services in a shelter for survivors of family violence and sexual assault, a substance abuse recovery facility, and a nonprofit community mental health agency. Additionally, I have regularly made presentations for professional groups as well as employee assistance programs and many types of social service agencies. As a professional helper I assist people in understanding more about themselves, their relationships, and the outer world (society). Kindness, compassion, creativity, and patience are key to my work with you. On your therapy journey you will learn many new things about who you are, your needs and wants, and paths you may choose to move towards your goals. It is also my responsibility to help you develop healthier ways of coping and to assist you in exploring your individual strengths. The work of therapy can be challenging for many reasons and requires you to be open and honest during the process. One of the first steps on this journey is for us to develop a trusting alliance. My task is to be non-judgemental, open-minded, committed, and an active listener. Parts of your story are shared over time and I will be patient as you develop a comfort with the therapeutic partnership. I will respect limits you express during this journey. Please note that my style blends listening with education and action. This style may be challenging for clients that desire a different design/process in therapy. If you feel ready to share some of your story, I am ready to listen, and will do what I can to assist you. Side notes: If you are requesting therapy services for the first time please be aware that I am not online 24/7, yet I will do my best to respond efficiently. In other words, I ask that you be patient as you wait for my response to your request for therapy. We may be in different time zones as well. Please be prepared to start the therapy process soon after you request services, or after you get connected to me, and be sure to check the platform regularly for correspondence. If you are having difficulty connecting to the therapy experience please let me know before exiting therapy. Sometimes a small miscommunication may be the issue and I will do my best to hear your concerns so that we can work towards resolution collaboratively. If you are a returning client wanting services with me again, or a new client preferring to work with me, you can expedite the process by reaching out to the helpdesk and letting them know so that they can contact me with the referral. At this time I am only offering Voice Call (phone/audio) and Live Chat sessions. Please be aware of this before starting, and/or during, the therapy process. ***Because a significantly growing number of clients are disclosing concerns about sexually explicit media (SEM; porn) use and sexual choices that they, and/or their loved ones, are making, especially in the last few years, I am especially keen to continue helping clients struggling with varying levels of sex and porn addiction. Mirroring other forms of addiction, shame, secrecy, denial, and disbelief are significant barriers that keep these cancers alive. There are so many barriers facing true, monogamous love, even before two people meet. There are challenges we encounter when initiating, nourishing, and maintaining ingredients and processes of love. At this point in my career, I want to protect and promote monogamous love potentials all across the world, and look forward to continuing to serve clients seeking this possibility.

I am a licensed professional counselor in Oklahoma. I received a Bachelor of Science from Southern Nazarene University in Family Studies and Gerontology and a Masters of Human Relations with the emphasis of Licensed Professional Counseling from The University of Oklahoma. I have experience with adults, families, and groups. I have worked with those struggling with mild to severe mental illness as well as those individuals who are struggling with issues including depression, grief & loss, abuse/neglect, addictions with dual diagnosis, behavioral problems, bipolar, and parenting problems. I adapt my counseling style to each individual. However, within my experience, I have noticed that clients are more adaptable to me utilizing a counseling style of a client-focused approach. I believe that it is important to meet the client where they currently are in their journey of life and work from that point. I am a very transparent-honest-caring individual in my day to day life and I bring that trait to each session with the belief that in doing so, the client feels more at ease with being honest as issues and challenges are being processed. I believe everyone deserves respect and compassion as well as the opportunity to have added support when needed. My approach/style combines cognitive-behavioral and client-centered….just to name a few. A client’s treatment plan and the direction of the sessions will be tailored to meet the individual needs.

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Little Elm 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.

Little Elm 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 Little Elm therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

A Little Elm 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 Little Elm counselor?

Before seeing your Little Elm 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 Little Elm.

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 Little Elm 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 Little Elm 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 Little Elm, 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.

Little Elm 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.
