Welcome! Congratulations on taking this step towards achieving your best life! We are all a work in progress and we can all benefit from an objective, non-judgmental and supportive ear! I would be honored to assist you on your journey. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas. I have provided counseling for over 20 years to clients of all ages with a large range of issues. I also have advanced certification in supervising counseling interns. Although I gravitate towards Cognitive Behavioral and Dialectical Behavioral theories and techniques, I have been trained in a variety of modalities and I am able to match those techniques to your specific needs. I believe in being solution focused and client centered. If you want a safe place to offload your thoughts and feelings, we can do that! If you would like to identify specific goals and consistently measure progress towards those goals, we can do that too. You will tell me what you would like to accomplish and I will support you to make that happen. I am a firm believer in a holistic approach to wellness. I believe that in order to be functioning at our best, we must explore issues of the mind, body and spirit. We are at peace when the mind, body and spirit are all working together in harmony. I have explored and am open to many forms of spirituality. Spirituality helps to foster hope and well-being by acknowledging that which is greater than ourselves (whatever you define that to be). I have also received certification through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and I am certified to teach spin and TRX classes. Although I am open to all types of clients, I have, over the years, developed some specialties. I specialize in Women's Issues which often include relationship issues, career development/workplace challenges, grief and loss, history of trauma and/or abuse, empowerment/self-esteem, development of healthy coping skills, moderation of emotions, anxiety issues, to name a few! I have also worked successfully with the LGBTQ+ community. I look forward to getting to know you and assisting you on your path to growth!

My training and experience are varied. I have a PhD in Counseling Psychology and I am licensed as a marriage and family therapist. I have trained therapists and counselors for the past three decades. In addition, I have seminary training and years in ministry and in training ministers. My work has ranged from private settings, agencies, and even in-patient psychiatric hospitals. This training and experience enable me to address both psychological and spiritual issues, when counselees wish to do so. My foremost concern is to help you make the changes you want to make in a psychologically and relationally sound manner. I do not have an agenda nor will I ever push religion on anyone. To do so would be unethical and very distasteful to me. I enjoy helping people make changes in their lives by discovering and implementing strengths and resources they already possess. To that end, I use a solution-focused and strategic approaches. In other words, I help you to discover or create the solutions, develop a plan to help you find the motivation and direction to apply those solutions, and do so with encouragement, warmth, and support.

Doing the same thing and expecting different results...the definition of insanity! I pride myself on "breaking the mold" of people's preconceived opinion of therapists, and accompanying people on their journey of healing. Being a US Army veteran, I bring a unique perspective to the field of mental health. My genuinely client-centered style of therapy provides a unique experience, and why I frequently get told "I've never met a therapist like you before!" It is easy to find ourselves feeling stuck in life, and before we know it we have spent far too long spinning tires. Whether assisting a teenager in defining what they want their future to look like, processing trauma with a veteran / first responder, or guiding an individual to break the chains of addiction, I am confident in our ability to work collaboratively towards accomplishing your goals. If you've read this far, you are obviously motivated to find the "right" therapist to talk to. Very seldom can we control things in life that negatively impact us, but taking control of what we can is one of the first steps to growth and self-discovery. Together, let's embark on a journey towards self-fulfillment, healing, and resilience!

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

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 Opdyke West therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Opdyke West 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 Opdyke West 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 Opdyke West, 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?

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.
