Hi Fellow Person! Does this sound like you? You find it difficult to complete tasks, stay focused, and beat the mounting frustration. Your thoughts seem all over the place. Purpose matters to you, but seems impossible to find and align with and you experience hits to your esteem, along with anxiety and depression. My name is Alexia Antoine, recovered perfectionist who has found out how her brain works and how to get the most out of it. I’ll help you determine and experience what success looks like for you in the therapy room and how it translates to daily life. I've been working with individuals for 10 years. HOW DO I DO WHAT I DO? I offer Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy with an empowering and holistic approach to create that added boost to motivation, life change and stubborn issues that affect your optimal functioning. As an EMDR-trained therapist I explain to you how we will prepare you for this powerful style of therapy and how your brain helps you heal the trauma once we begin it. HOW DO I SERVE YOU? Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, and a combination of therapy styles based on your unique needs. Interestingly, whether it be adjusting to the current life stage, learning self-love/soul care, or handling career demands, it looks different for each person. We'll develop some actionable steps to help you gauge where you are in your wants will be helpful to get you to where you want to be. When we begin, we'll discuss two to three key questions that help you see where your values and motivations are. I use Rocket-Fueled Affirmations, a form of affirmations that help you discover: what you want, why you want it, and how life looks once you have it. Then we involve the 5 senses until you can almost experience it before it becomes reality. This is a great tool that helps center the mind and connect you with your top priorities, beyond what impulse tells you matters. Part of how I work with you is by helping you leverage your own challenges, acknowledging the gap between where you are and where you want to be. This creates an unmatched brain-body connection by simply thinking about your desires, or even looking at pictures of your desires. Primary focus: Adult ADHD, Goal Attainment, Task Completion, Executive Functioning Additional Focus: Trauma (using EMDR) Important Note: If you are experiencing altered judgment, hallucinations, need medical help (including help with prescription medication, or physiological attention), are experiencing abuse/neglect, are in danger or at risk of putting someone else in danger, or are seeking inpatient treatment, immediately call 911 and/or go to your nearest emergency room. The BetterHelp platform does not take the place of precautionary measures for high-acuity needs.

As a counselor and an artist, I enjoy helping others - youth, adults, and families - solve challenges and improve their relationships, communication, and growth. I see the therapeutic process as a journey. We get to a better place by working together, identifying your goals and the strategies to make them reality. I firmly believe that the best way to do this is by providing a safe and judgment-free environment where I listen with unconditional positive regard, helping you clearly see the path in front of you. It is in the moments of profound insight - when the light truly comes on - that we can leap forward in overcoming current challenges, escape painful mindsets and relationship dynamics, and create opportunities for true and lasting growth. We are partners, working together to find what works for you. I’m excited to begin that journey.

My passion....What gives me meaning and purpose in life....Is to provide support to men and women who struggle with trauma. Trauma comes in all forms and affects us all differently. It makes it difficult to function effectively in everyday life. It tears relationships apart, leads us to abuse substances, affects sleep and our ability to work, and causes us to lose trust in the people and places we love the most. I have specialized training in EMDR, Cognitive-Behavioral, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, and Dialectical Behavior modalities. I specialize in working with military veterans and first responders and their families, individuals with complex childhood trauma, and relationship issues that are a direct result of trauma. I also have extensive experience working with substance use disorders and addictive behaviors, phobias and anxiety disorders, codependency, and mood disorders. I am currently fully licensed in the State of Texas as an LPC. I graduated at the top of my class with Master's degrees in both Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Addiction's Counseling, and am currently a member of Chi Sigma Iota Honor Society.

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

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

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

Before seeing your Colleyville 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 Colleyville.

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 Colleyville 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 Colleyville 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 Colleyville, 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.

Colleyville 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.
