Welcome! Taking the first step into therapy can bring upon many different thoughts and emotions. I understand this which is why I believe a genuine trust and relationship with your therapist can bring healing and peace. Whether you are faced with something that occurred 2 days ago or 20 years ago, allow me to provide you with a safe place to share your struggles, your stories and your strengths. While in therapy, we work collaboratively together. I will hear your voice, ask thought provoking questions, as well as provide my thoughts and suggestions to help you achieve the change you are seeking. We will explore and build new coping skills and strengthen the ones you already have. I specialize in working with adolescents and adults who have endured various forms of trauma. I also work with clients who struggle with a variety of concerns such as anxiety, depression, grief/loss, adjustment struggles and relationship struggles. Allow me to walk alongside you during this journey of growth and healing from past wounds.

Greetings, I have been privileged to serve as a counselor to individuals and families for over thirty-five years and have worked with people of different ages, races, nationalities, and gender preferences. Over the years I have worked primarily in mental health, family guidance, and rehab clinics. I also have had a private practice for over 12 years. People have entered counseling with me for a great variety of problems: stress, depression, anxiety, depression, anger, grief, loss, addictions and painful relationships. Some have suffered from serious mental illness; others are facing one of life’s many difficult situations and would like some guidance. As far as education, I have a doctorate in counseling and am a licensed master social worker and licensed marriage and family therapist in the state of Texas. I have studied many different modalities of therapy and have incorporated those that work best for my clients into my practice. This allows me to focus on the individual in front of me (or on screen) and work with them in a way that respects their values and preferred pathways to change. Most people who work with me find me to be supportive, encouraging, honest, and insightful. They succeed in accomplishing the goals that they set for themselves and begin to live a life they enjoy. I hope that you will contact me and discover for yourself that these things are true.

I am a licensed professional therapist currently based in Texas. I graduated with a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy, with a certificate in Trauma Therapy. My experience includes working with couples, families, college students, and children from age 8-teens. I provide premarital counseling, marriage therapy, sex therapy, and individual therapy. I have worked with anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, abuse, adoption issues, and adjustment disorders. My therapy style involves understanding the client from their point of view. I work from a holistic view, believing all systems of the body; physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual, help in the healing process. I especially love emotionally focused therapy and narrative therapy, but include other therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and family systems. I have been trained in EMDR and have found it can be utilized in many areas, but especially with trauma. Before becoming a therapist I worked as an RN for 20 years, graduating with my Bachelor's degree from Baylor University. Thirteen of those years were as a hospice nurse, so end of life care and grief counseling has been a big part of my life. I incorporate my medical background in the therapy process. I want to hear your story and look forward to working with you!

Life can throw unexpected challenges our way, especially in our closest relationships. When problems arise, I'm here to help you explore those moments with compassion and understanding. Through a strengths-based systemic approach to therapy, we'll explore all aspects of your life that might be contributing to the issue at hand, and work towards finding practical solutions that resonate with you. I firmly believe that problems don't exist in isolation. That's why I take a holistic approach, considering how various factors in your life might be influencing the challenges you're facing. In our sessions, you'll find a safe, non-judgmental environment where you can freely express yourself and discover your own strengths and resilience. My passion lies in empowering individuals to become the best version of themselves. I see each person as the expert of their own life, and my role is to walk alongside you on your journey toward growth and self-discovery. Together, we'll build a trusting relationship grounded in respect and empathy, and I'll provide you with the tools you need to move forward with confidence. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Colorado State University before relocating to Texas in 2012 to pursue my Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy from Capella University. Over the years, I've gained experience working in both inpatient and outpatient settings, addressing a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, life transitions, and self-esteem. I have always loved northern Colorado and missed living there so in 2023, I moved back to Colorado with my husband. I'm excited to embark on this journey with you and to support you in building meaningful, healthy relationships and finding significance in your unique experiences. If you're ready to take the next step towards positive change, I'm here to help.

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 Mobile City 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.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Mobile City 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 Mobile City 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 Mobile City 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 Mobile City, 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 Mobile City 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 Mobile City 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 Mobile City 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 Mobile City 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 Mobile City 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 75087 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 Mobile City 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 Mobile City 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 Mobile City, 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.

Mobile City 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.
