At times, it may be difficult to understand how you arrived at the place in life at which you are or understand why you have experienced different situations in your life. You may have experienced trauma or stress that have led you to this place. You may have feelings of depression, anxiety, or may even have an uncertainty about how you feel. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, my intention is to work diligently with you to identify and examine maladaptive patterns that cause obstacles for you to be the best version of yourself and live a positive and healed life.

I am a Doctor of Behavioral Health, a Licensed Professional Counselor, and a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist. I am licensed to practice in Texas and Colorado. I have worked with clients suffering from stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, depression, and those struggling to cope with life changes. I have experience working with severely mentally ill patients in a psychiatric emergency treatment center and a community behavioral health clinic. I have spent the majority of my time, however, in private practice. My clients range in age from 13 to 99! I enjoy helping people from all walks of life. Many people come to me because they are suffering from anxiety. It seems like COVID really pushed a lot of people over the edge, especially those who were already struggling with relationships or mental health issues. Panic attacks, depression, sleep disorders, and mood swings are common issues I see in clients. A lot of moms used to have a glass of wine at night and now many are admitting to needing a whole bottle! Many people tell me they feel fearful of things that are happening in the world and do not know how to cope with feeling out of control. Others tell me that they are struggling financially or dealing with health issues. I have had many teens tell me that they feel suicidal and hopeless. I have also seen an increase in those struggling with gender dysphoria and relationship issues. A lot of my older clients are sad about the world they will be leaving to their children. I understand and empathize with all of these situations! From OCD to PTSD, there really isn't much that I haven't encountered as a therapist. Veterans, homeless, addicts, abusers, victims, parents, children, CEOs, athletes, cancer patients, EMS workers, young and old, rich and poor... you name it...I have worked with people from all walks of life. What I can say is that I bring the same level of compassionate care to everyone I encounter. There is no judgment. It is humbling to realize that for many people, I am the one person they feel safe confiding in, and I take that trust very seriously. Regardless of the issues and their severity, I work closely with every client to help find solutions that make life more manageable and enjoyable. I believe that every person needs a toolbox that is full of ideas and strategies for coping with the stressors of life. As the saying goes, if all you have is a hammer, then everything will look like a nail. There are plenty of other tools out there, and when you own them, it is so empowering! Soon, you will be building and creating the life that you want for yourself! You are unique, valuable, and worthy of healthy relationships, happiness, and love. I believe that you are the expert of your life and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support and empower you in that journey!

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed O'Donnell 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 O'Donnell 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 O'Donnell 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 O'Donnell, 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 O'Donnell 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.

You can also try a O'Donnell 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 O'Donnell 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 O'Donnell 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 O'Donnell 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 O'Donnell, 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.

O'Donnell 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.
