Hi, my name is Kolton and I am a Licensed Psychological Counselor. My role is one of an advocate, supporter, coach, and listener. I do not have all the answers, but I will do my best to help you figure out what the unique answers are for you. A passion of mine is helping others and I believe that each person has their own unique experience along their journey in life. Sometimes that journey is tough and we meet roadblocks……Counseling is a great way to sort through a situation or just a way to seek support from an un-biased listener. My approach allows you to be in the driver’s seat. There are times where we may take a hands-on approach, and there are times where we may just talk through it. I have developed a passion for supporting adolescents, teenagers, and young adults in navigating areas from the LGBTQIA+ community, to future Career/College aspirations. In addition, I have experience in couple, family, and drug/alcohol abuse counseling. My views are that you are an individual person with unique experiences that are unlike another’s. Therefore, it is not my role to judge or provide you my opinion, but simply to provide the support you seek. As a professional disclosure, I have a Master of Arts Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Southeastern Oklahoma State University. I am also a Licensed Psychological Counselor and Nationally Certified Counselor. It takes so much strength to seek outside support and please know that you will be met with respect, regard, and the upmost decency during this experience.

Hi there! My name is Roxanne Stegall and I am a licensed clinical social worker with over eight years experience working in the mental healthcare field. My past work experience in both the medical and mental healthcare settings have prepared me to work with individuals from diverse backgrounds. I earned my Masters of Social Work Degree from Louisiana State University where I completed two internships, one was a local non-profit family-counseling center and the other was a state run outpatient-counseling center. After graduation, I was hired as the lead therapist at a private inpatient mental health facility where I worked with a multidisciplinary team and provided individual, family, and group counseling to both adolescents and adults. After making a move to a new city, I became a medical social worker for a children's hospital where I primarily worked with children and their families who were facing a life altering medical diagnosis. Past clients have described my demeanor as warm, empathetic, and approachable. I strive to create a safe and non-judgmental environment for each client to explore any life challenge they may be facing such as difficulties with stress/anxiety, feelings of depression, grief, chronic illness, life transitions, and/or relationship conflicts. I enjoy working alongside my clients to develop goals and objectives to address these life challenges. My approach to therapy is a holistic one. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches when working with clients, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, as well as strengths-based and mindfulness-based techniques. Whether this is your first time seeking counseling services or you are a returning client, engaging in therapy takes courage and humility. My personal goal as a therapist is for my clients to feel a greater sense of life-balance, self-confidence, and self-awareness that will empower them to address future life challenges that may arise. If you are ready to take the first steps towards a change, I look forward to working with you and supporting you through the journey!

3 years of experience as a therapist

I am a Doctor of Behavioral Health, a Licensed Professional Counselor, and a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist. I am licensed to practice in Texas and Colorado. I have worked with clients suffering from stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, depression, and those struggling to cope with life changes. I have experience working with severely mentally ill patients in a psychiatric emergency treatment center and a community behavioral health clinic. I have spent the majority of my time, however, in private practice. My clients range in age from 13 to 99! I enjoy helping people from all walks of life. Many people come to me because they are suffering from anxiety. It seems like COVID really pushed a lot of people over the edge, especially those who were already struggling with relationships or mental health issues. Panic attacks, depression, sleep disorders, and mood swings are common issues I see in clients. A lot of moms used to have a glass of wine at night and now many are admitting to needing a whole bottle! Many people tell me they feel fearful of things that are happening in the world and do not know how to cope with feeling out of control. Others tell me that they are struggling financially or dealing with health issues. I have had many teens tell me that they feel suicidal and hopeless. I have also seen an increase in those struggling with gender dysphoria and relationship issues. A lot of my older clients are sad about the world they will be leaving to their children. I understand and empathize with all of these situations! From OCD to PTSD, there really isn't much that I haven't encountered as a therapist. Veterans, homeless, addicts, abusers, victims, parents, children, CEOs, athletes, cancer patients, EMS workers, young and old, rich and poor... you name it...I have worked with people from all walks of life. What I can say is that I bring the same level of compassionate care to everyone I encounter. There is no judgment. It is humbling to realize that for many people, I am the one person they feel safe confiding in, and I take that trust very seriously. Regardless of the issues and their severity, I work closely with every client to help find solutions that make life more manageable and enjoyable. I believe that every person needs a toolbox that is full of ideas and strategies for coping with the stressors of life. As the saying goes, if all you have is a hammer, then everything will look like a nail. There are plenty of other tools out there, and when you own them, it is so empowering! Soon, you will be building and creating the life that you want for yourself! You are unique, valuable, and worthy of healthy relationships, happiness, and love. I believe that you are the expert of your life and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support and empower you in that journey!

Each person deserves to live an authentic, meaningful, and happy life as we all search for our purpose and make meaning from our life experiences. At times life can feel overwhelming when we are presented with challenges, uncertainties, or unexpected events that can leave us questioning our purpose, feeling stuck in the past, worried about the future, or disconnected from our personal freedom. These challenges can get in the way of us realizing our potential by creating unfulfilling and unhealthy patterns that can be hard to escape on our own. Counseling is a place to start exploring those patterns we find ourselves in and begin developing new patterns consistent with who we are authentically. As a counselor, I aim to understand your experience and help you find your freedom that empowers you to make choices consistent with your goals and authentic self. I provide a non-judgmental, caring, open, and accepting space that allows you to explore areas necessary for your growth. And, I hope to co-create meaning with you as you make sense of it all and re-connect to your unique purpose. My formal education, training, and field experiences have prepared me to work with individuals across the lifespan addressing a variety of mental health concerns including anxiety, depression, and relationship concerns. Thanks for taking the time to review my profile as you consider who may be a good fit for you as you embark on this journey of self-discovery and growth. I hope to work with you soon!

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 Southlake, 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 Southlake 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 Southlake 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)

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

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

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug or medication as treatment, or perform psychological assessments and other psychiatric services.

You can also try a Southlake therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

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

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

Southlake therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs.

A Southlake 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.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Southlake 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 Southlake.

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 Southlake 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 Southlake, 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?

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.
