Greetings! Resilience, in us, is crucial when faced with day to day challenges. To a certain degree, this resilience carries us through the toughest of times. For some, resilience has somewhat become dormant, to a point that it has manifested itself to making you feel "stuck." This feeling, may have you saying to yourself that there is no way out. I'm here to say that there is a way out.. There is always a way out of this being "stuck" feeling. My counseling approach is that YOU are the expert of your life! You will dictate how your journey goes. I have found that every individual is unique in their own way. Therefore, my approach is integrative and I incorporate different life strategies and therapeutic techniques to assist and empower you to find solutions towards your well being. My goal is to be that tool that guides you to finding or restoring the resilience needed to overcome whatever obstacle or challenge life throws at you while at the same time giving you the tools to make the necessary changes in your life. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been in the field of mental health for over thirty two years. I have worked in an acute inpatient unit with individuals who struggle with anxiety, depression, and trauma. I have also been a behavioral consultant at my local school district and a school counselor for at risk students ages ten - eighteen. In addition to working in a hospital/clinical and educational setting, I also work in private practice. I know that asking and receiving this kind of help still carries a certain stigma in many cultures and populations. However, let this be the day that you begin a process of new beginnings. Taking care of your mental well being is just as important as taking care of your physical well being. Hope to hear from you soon!

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Needville 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 Needville due to a higher cost of living.

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

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Needville counselor?

Before seeing your Needville 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 Needville.

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 Needville 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 Needville 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 Needville, 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 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.
