My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. I view counseling as a collaborative relationship in which the client and I work together to explore the current problematic issues and develop goals to address these issues. I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, behavioral issues and communication and relationships. I work with children, adults, teens, couples, and families of all backgrounds.

It takes courage to be vulnerable enough to ask for help. You've already taken your first steps towards growth simply by identifying that something feels wrong and looking for a solution. My main focus as a counselor is to help my clients understand themselves, as well as their thoughts, feelings and behaviors. In this understanding can come acceptance change, and healing. During our sessions you will have the opportunity to build on your strength and explore new skills, insights and solutions as determined by your needs and preferences. I am Licensed Professional Counselor that practices in Texas. I have 10 years of post graduate experience which includes graduate level counseling experiences, school setting, community setting, private practice and a non-profit organization. My counseling goal is to work with each client to develop a positive, focused and action oriented plan to address problems efficiently and effectively. Should you feel need of urgent help or that you are in a crisis at anytime during our work together, please call 1-800-273-TALK 24 hours a day or 911. This forum does not provide any type of emergency services, so I want to be sure you know who to contact if you need immediate help.

37 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I have been counseling in the mental health field for 37 years. I utilize my training as a registered art therapist to put creativity (both my own, and my client's) to work in problem solving and gaining different perspectives on the unique difficulties he or she may be dealing with . Depression, anxiety, feeling unloved or unappreciated, feelings of anger, resentment, guilt, sorrow..,,,poor coping skills as a result of unacknowledged trauma…all these things and many more can be healed. I strive for my clients to gain hope and optimism during the first session. My approach is warm and humanistic; I use humor and compassion freely, and have come to believe that both of these qualities are essential for personal growth, healing and resilience. I am influenced by Jungian theory, as well as Native American spirituality. Both of these life outlooks consider balance, respect of differences, and gratitude as important to a happy life. In addition, neither of these traditions shy away from facing the darker sides of our personalities, recognizing that denial only keeps a person stuck, ……..while allowing the light of awareness to illuminate our dark sides can bring the reward of greater self-knowledge, personal growth and authentic living. I may ask you to have markers and paper nearby at times, to help symbolize a problem or relationship, express feelings, or create a 'map' of a situation or problem. Please embrace this idea with an open mind, as no talent whatsoever is required to make marks on paper. I look forward to assisting you on your path of loving yourself and others more, releasing pain, seeing more reasons for laughter and gratitude, and healing old wounds whose time has come to be healed.

Hi. I’m Peggy. I am an LPC in the Great State of Texas and have extensive experience working in the mental health field. I am a United States Navy veteran and a retired federal civilian employee. These life experiences have helped to shape who I am – a straight forward, authentic person. I’m task oriented in that I believe if you voluntarily reached out for a counselor, there’s probably a reason. So let’s get to work. On the other hand, I also believe that sometimes life events can seem overwhelming in the moment and you just need someone to talk to, not to fix anything, just someone to listen. I’m that person as well. I wish I could press a button to fix whatever is going on in your life, but we all know that’s not possible. This journey is yours to take, but you don't have to go alone. As a member of your team. I promise I’ll walk beside you, encourage you, and be your biggest ally. Although it may not always seem like it, just remember – you’ve got this!

Hi, I am Tiaira Willis- Haynes. I have been providing therapeutic services for over 5 years. I am currently a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) who is Nationally Certified. I received my Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2018. My favorite theoretical orientation is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I graciously believe how we think and behave plays a role in our current struggles. I also utilize Solution Focused Therapy when problems need to be resolved quickly. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband and loved ones. I started this helping journey when I first entered college. As I navigated my way into adulthood, I found myself to always be the person others were drawn to in their time of need. I then learned my strongest therapeutic skills were being openminded while listening and showing empathy towards others. A high percentage of my caseload involves those struggling with anxiety, anger, depression, family or relationship conflict, domestic violence, parenting, life skills, and stress. The joy I get when I realize I am helping someone makes this career worthwhile. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support, encourage, listen, and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Hackberry 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 Hackberry due to a higher cost of living.

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

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

Hackberry 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 Hackberry 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 Hackberry 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.

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

Before seeing your Hackberry 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 Hackberry.

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 Hackberry 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 Hackberry 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 Hackberry, 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.

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.
