All teens have their moody days, and some can be downright unpleasant sometimes. However, if your teenager is acting more sullen than usual, sleeping all the time, and not wanting to hang out with their friends, they may have depression. There are plenty of mental health experts in Prosper who are trained to diagnose and treat depression and other mental conditions. 

Once you get your teen back to normal, you can both enjoy some of the attractions of Prosper like the Town Lake Park, Whispering Farms, Fire Station Park, Frontier Park, and Boyer Park. Spending the day out at one of the parks or the lake can be good for you both, physically and mentally.

8 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in both Texas and Florida as well as an Air Force veteran with experience in deployments. I earned my Master of Science in Counseling and Psychology from Troy University, and am qualified to provide EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy. I have worked in a private practice and clinic setting helping individuals and families with issues related to depression, anxiety, life changes, PTSD, anger management, and improving relationships. My availability for one-on-one live sessions are typically mid-day, with occasional evenings upon request. My counseling style is a combination of warm and empathetic, along with tactful honesty and accountability. I believe in mutual respect and compassion. I encourage my clients to be honest with me and if something is not working, to speak up and tell me. I believe in allowing my clients to take ownership of their therapy and gain skills in advocating for themselves and their loved ones. I also believe in understanding the human condition of imperfection and we all make mistakes. I use a combination of cognitive-behavioral, psycho-education, mindfulness, and humanistic treatment approaches. I understand that sometimes all a person needs is an attentive ear, but also quick and useful solutions to problematic symptoms or issues. I will create a balance within my counseling style based on your particular needs and preferences. I also enjoy adding an element of humor in my treatment when it is appropriate. It takes a great amount of courage to ask for help. I look forward to helping you through your journey and learning more about yourself. My goal is to help empower you to improve what is working well for you and give you the tools to help change what is not working for you. I look forward to starting this new journey with you!

Greetings! I'm here to help you find the perfect match for counseling, as evidence shows this is the most important factor for long term success. My primary goals are to help you alleviate suffering and live meaningfully. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas with several years of experience counseling in the mental health field since 2015. I graduated with a master’s degree in clinical psychology from Sam Houston State University. I have counseled students in a university setting, treated patients in a psychiatric hospital, worked with patients with severe substance abuse issues and co-occurring mental health issues, taught at the university level and supervised other therapists, and counseled individually in private practice. I've done psychotherapy with many different kinds of issues, such as mild to severe depression, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, traumatic stress, substance abuse and other addictions, psychotic disorders, mood disorders, grief and loneliness/meaninglessness. My approach to therapy ultimately begins with warm and non-judgmental support, no matter the problem. I seek to empower clients to make their own decisions and move towards valued-based living. I’ll be here for support, no matter what. Behind my approach is a cutting-edge technology in cognitive behavioral therapy called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). My desire is to find the underlying processes that might be contributing to your suffering and individualize treatment together, using evidence-based methods, while also making sure you feel truly heard. Choosing the counselor that fits your needs and goals is crucial to your success in therapy. The counseling field has known for a long time now that the most reliable predictor of success in therapy is the therapeutic relationship itself. Make sure you feel good about your counselor—that you trust and respect them. Together we will create a unique space to talk about issues, learn to gain mental space from distressing thoughts, and build behaviors centered around your own values to invigorate your life with meaning and purpose. You’re not alone. It’s time to get out of your mind and into your life.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Prosper 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 Prosper 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.

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 Prosper 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 Prosper 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 Prosper 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 Prosper 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.

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

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

Prosper 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 Prosper 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 Prosper 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 75078 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 Prosper counselor?

Before seeing your Prosper 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 Prosper.

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 Prosper 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 Prosper 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 Prosper, 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.

Prosper 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.
