I’m Vickie. Thank you for reviewing my profile. I’m a licensed professional counselor in the state of Texas. I’ve been working in the counseling field for 11 years and have been fully licensed for the past five years. Before becoming a counselor, I worked as a teacher in the public-school system for over a decade. As a counselor, I have worked in the school system, an inpatient mental health facility, a non-profit children’s counseling center, a women’s crisis center, and in private practice. These different working environments have made me comfortable working with people of all ages and with a variety of challenges.
My goal as a counselor is to provide a warm, comfortable, caring environment where individuals can clarify life problems, develop insight, learn and practice new skills, and feel empowered to overcome challenges and obtain/maintain overall emotional wellness and resiliency. I strive to empower clients to discover their own truth, inner strength, and potential for personal growth and success in all areas of life. Clients find that I provide a safe, accepting, healing environment for persons of all races, ethnicities, spiritual practices, gender identities, and sexual orientations.
I utilize many different techniques as a counselor, but tend toward Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness most of the time. I like exploring the interplay between thoughts, feelings, and behavior and seeing how changing one of these aspects can affect the others.
I enjoy working with older adolescents, college students, and adults. Areas of specialization include recovery from domestic violence and sexual abuse, LGBTQ issues, anxiety, depression, anger, relationship issues, divorce/separation, self-esteem issues, and women's issues.
My services are open to anyone, regardless of race, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, gender identity or expression.
I look forward to working with you!

Vickie is not your normal counselor. She is meeting me right where I am even tho my concerns are about how to grow my business.
Vickie is a great listener with a calm and reassuring disposition. She picked up quickly on what I needed to hear, offered good insights, and provided a very affirmative experience for me. Would highly recommend!
I’ve already written a review! Vickie is awesome. I have recommended BetterHelp many times as well. I love the flexibility, quick and easy response via email or phone, my preferred choices.
Vickie has a very warm, kind spirit and light about her. When I talk to her and I'm feeling very low and upset, she's able to talk me to calmness. You can hear it in her voice and feel in her spirit that she's very dedicated to helping you out and doing it at a pace and in a style that you're comfortable with. She is open-minded and accepting, and really listens to you and allows you to talk and express yourself however you need to. Her responses whether it be via phone or through messaging show that. I'd suggest her for anyone who's struggled finding a therapist that works for them.
She is a great therapist. Highly recommend.
Vickie has been a kind and firm light when I need it most - she is loving and warm but also understands that I sometimes need a strong voice in my corner to speak up for me when I've lost my own voice. I am so happy to have her in my life as a resource.
Vickie is affirming and listens to the my whole situation and helps me consider the best options.
I’ve enjoyed talking with Vickie Lamb so far, I would recommend her
