I am a Licensed Professional Counselor practicing since 1981. My primary focus has been with families and young people seeking to address disruptive behaviors in the home as well as in social settings and schools. In recent years I have served the military communities at Installations all over the world. This has been with active duty members as well as dependents exploring the challenges of a military life. I enjoy life coaching and the opportunities to encourage others in pursuit of their personal goals. Most recently I have developed a focus on senior adults who are grieving or have found themselves isolated and looking to break the cycle of loneliness. Solution Focused Brief Therapy has been my approach over the years.

As a counselor I see my role in working with folks is to help create peace within themselves. What I notice is that when people have that inner peace it helps them find their own way and move forward with the life they want to lead. I've been practicing for over 12 years and nothing makes me happier to see people making the changes that create happiness and meaning in their lives. The way that I begin my work with folks is by doing a thorough background history that allows me to get a better view of what is going on and how I can better serve you. I can help you start on this path to a better you.

Welcome! If you are looking into Better Help, you are probably struggling with something significant in your life. Finding the right person to help you is essential. If you don't have a good relationship with your counselor, you won't make the progress you are hoping to achieve. I would like to provide you with some information about me, in order to help you decide if my experience and style is the right match for you. I am a licensed professional counselor with more than 30 years of experience in behavioral health. I have worked in both hospitals and outpatient settings, with people from all different backgrounds who struggle with a wide variety of challenges. Much of my experience has been working with people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, caregiving, relationship issues, polyamory, LGBTQ+ and gender issues. Although it may be comforting to believe that a therapist “has it all together,” the truth is that therapists are people with their own challenges, on their own journeys, just as you are. I am still learning, making mistakes, and moving past them. However, from where I am on my path, I hope to be able to see things on your path that you are unable to see, such as obstacles you are facing and alternatives you could try. I will treat you with sensitivity, respect, and warmth; first of all by getting to know you as a person, since you are the expert on your own life. You can expect me to walk with you through whatever difficulties you are facing and help you learn more about yourself and the way you interact with the world. Together, we can come up with goals and solutions that are going to work for you. I can work with you in whatever manner you are most comfortable. I find it helpful to participate in video sessions so that we can read each other’s expressions and nonverbal cues, But I am also available to you via phone and text if that is more comfortable for you. I check messages at least once during each day. Seeking therapy is not an easy decision to make. I know how hard it can be to find a counselor who you feel a connection with and I would be honored to work with you through this stage of your life.

I'm a licensed therapist who's spent 40+ years helping people through their toughest challenges. My work has been in a variety of settings including in-patient hospitals, halfway houses, homeless shelters, school counseling offices, college classrooms, church counseling, and outpatient clinics. Those experiences give me a broad and deep perspective on the struggles people go through. In my own life, I grew up in a blended family. So I am personally familiar with all the drama that brings. I have been married for over 35 years to the same woman and have three wonderful sons, who were homeschooled. Presently, I am also involved in the care of a parent with dementia. These experiences give me insights and understanding into the challenges families and individuals face. I make extensive use of psychodynamic techniques, and cognitive behavioral therapy approaches. From grief, guilt, difficulty coping and relationship issues, to recovering from infidelity and addiction- if you're looking for help with your struggles like these, I want to talk with you first! I have always been passionate about helping people with the challenges they face in life. I want to see you succeed and improve your life. I've worked with clients across a wide range of concerns including low self-esteem, discouragement, relationship issues, codependency, recovering from infidelity and addiction but also career challenges or caregiving for elderly parents. There are times you may feel overwhelmed and unable to handle things on your own terms - that's when it can be helpful to learn new ways of handling them! Reach out today if any of these topics resonate for you; there is hope available here at my practice now more than ever before!" I am committed to providing compassionate care tailored specifically around each individual needs while working collaboratively as partners toward addressing their goals together. Whether it's addiction, enabling, communication, relationship, or depression-related issues, working together will help you through them. My aim is to provide a safe, supportive place where you can be yourself and work on your goals. I listen carefully to clients, take the time needed to understand their situation, and develop thoughtful ways of helping them address what they need in their lives. I believe that everyone has untapped strengths which can help them recover from difficulties or achieve the goals of their life.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Levelland 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?

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.

You can also try a Levelland 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 Levelland 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.

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

Levelland has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey.

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.
