Hi, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas and have worked for over 8 years with people who suffer from diverse, life-challenging mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, anger management, low self-esteem, suicidal ideation, sexual or physical abuse, social phobia, drug/alcohol abuse, parenting, relationship issues, etc. I am a first-generation immigrant from South Korea and have worked with the Hispanic population for several years, enhancing my cultural awareness. I can also approach various family dynamics and conflicts with psychologically knowledgeable perspectives based on my two master degrees and clinical experiences. My major counseling method is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy including Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, however, I occasionally utilize other effective counseling methods for my clients’ benefits. I take each client’s situation seriously and do my best to make productive and positive progress with my clients in order to reach our counseling goals. I believe that each one of us is not only the most important existence in this world, but also is the world itself. We will work together as a team and we can make our world better together.

Hello, and welcome. I am primarily an emotional release therapist, but have training in CBT / DBT / EFT and other modalities... I have worked as a therapist for public mental health facilities for over 7 years, and have worked with psych hospitals exclusively for the last 8 years, but I miss having direct contact with clients, vs working behind the scenes on their behalves. I have worked with a wide range of clients, from ADHD to OCD to just about everything in between, but my favorite populations are hoarders, those with depression, and people who have suffered serious trauma, such as first responders, or victims of trauma. My favorite technique to use is one that combines the CLIENT'S FAITH BASE (belief in a higher power, prayer), with some ENERGY WORK. It is effective and quick, and most of the people I've worked with have seen resolution within 1-3 sessions. Please bear in mind, that you may need longer than that, based on your trauma and duration, but as this is so quick and effective, It's my preferred method for getting you up and out of the trenches so that you can start approaching your life from a more balanced standpoint. Once your "stuck" points are worked out, then we can continue therapy from a more educational standpoint, where you'll learn techniques, strategies and skills. Welcome.... I'm glad you're here.... Let's get started....

My undergraduate Degree is in Physical Education/English from the University of Texas/Arlington. I taught High School English and coached women's Volleyball, Basketball, Track and Cross Country before completing my Masters Degree in Counseling from the University of Texas/Denton. I find that my teaching and coaching experience has greatly enhanced my skills as a counselor/therapist. I connect easily with people and gain their trust rather quickly and am able to teach them and motivate them to become their very best. I have experience working with Military personnel and their family members as a Department of Defense Counselor and as a Military Family Life Counselor. I have experience working with substance abuse having provided counseling for persons ordered to treatment by the courts. I have been providing counseling services for over twenty seven years both in private practice and as a full time employee, first with Dallas County Probation, then Department of Defense, then MHN as a consultant with the Military community. I have a very eclectic approach to therapy. I have to see what the client resonates with then offer that for them. I believe every person deserves to be safe and happy and i give my very best to help them achieve this. Because I have done a lot of trauma work i do a lot of work around the inner child. When you are raised in a dysfunctional homeor have experienced abuse and/or trauma the inner child, the keeper of the feelings often shows up to add a wrinkle to your present life. It is necessary to connect with the inner child and do some healing work in order to be happy in your present life. Sometimes it is hard but the end result is a completely happy person, comfortable in their own skin and in control of their emotions.

I have been counseling for over 10 years. I took 3 years off to focus on wholïstïc wellness & shamanistic healing. In that time it forced me to gain insight & enlightenment in to my deeper purpose for being on this planet. Growing up in the inner city of Chicago I seen so much at a young age. It forced me to always seek peace and protect my energy from adverse entities being emerged in so much emotional & spiritual deprivation. After being so helpful to thousands of clients burnout set in. I took 3 years away from counseling and participated in multiple spiritual wellness retreats and gained clarity about my path on this planet & now more grounded and intentional then I have ever been. I live in a state of Flow & practice being present. My inner child was revived & now I assist others in discovering their Purpose and assisting them in being alignment to their core values & divine destiny. I use art therapy, nature therapy & innerchild healing techniques to assist my clients in gaining & grounding a deeper sense of stability while on this planet. Assisting you in Re-Learning to love ourselves is my primary objective while fearlessly coping with our daily test & opportunities for greatness.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Thrall.

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 Thrall, 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. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Thrall or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns. They may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Thrall 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 Thrall 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 Thrall 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 BetterHelp or clinicians 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 Thrall, 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 as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Thrall above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Thrall helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Thrall therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Thrall 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 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.

A psychologist 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 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 Thrall 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 lot of people in TX, providers 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 76578 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Thrall 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. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

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. A Thrall 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 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.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy 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 Thrall, 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.

Thrall 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?

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.
