****PLEASE READ**** Hello, My name is Tory and I have been working with individuals on the path of behavioral health wellness for almost 20 years now, 10 of which have all been in outpatient therapy. What I offer is SOLUTION FOCUSED BRIEF THERAPY, I highlight this because this approach is somewhat different then what most might consider therapy. In this approach we work toward your desired outcome and increasing the presence of that outcome in your life. Through this dialogue we examine your strengths, resources, and experiences that have/can move you closer to your desired outcome. By this approach we jump right into the changes you want to see for yourself. We will explore NOT the “why” but the “what” “how” and “when”. I believe that we all contain within us the answers to the questions related to our experiences, goals, and overall destiny. I find joy in assisting with and co-facilitating a process of self-discovery and growth. If you’re ready to activate and move towards the change you want to see I look forward to speaking with you soon! Congratulations in taking the next step to growth and healing, I look forward to accompanying you on this journey. Be Well, Tory

Hello Fellow Traveler! I believe life is a journey full of bumps and bruises. I am just another travel ready and equipped to guide you through the rough patches. I have worked in education with children for over 20 years, and I have been a licensed professional counselor for 6 years. My style of therapy is open and eclectic based upon the needs of my client. Our goal in therapy is to guide you through whatever obstacle has been placed in your path. I believe in an honest direct approach in which you the client will learn to assume responsibility and take ownership and control over whatever is effecting your life. I am a 42 year old Black American with Latino background. I believe in unity and multiculturalism. When I welcome you into my practice my goal is for you to feel comfortable and not judged. The more you are comfortable, the better the experience and I will provide that safe harbor you may need in times of worry and doubt. I come from a single parent household, and I understand what it is like to struggle. I work very well with young adults and families, but I am also very well versed in other areas such as anxiety, depression, drug addiction with or without dual diagnoses, anger management, work related stressors, as well as parenting and Autism. It is my sincere hope that this small introduction made you feel welcomed! So come on in and lets work together!

My approach to therapy follows a simple format delivered with the utmost respect and enthusiasm. I must earn your trust. This is supposed to help you. My communication style is generally void of jargon, colloquialisms or "psychobabble". Initially some mutual understanding of the problem must be established. Definition fosters clarity; clarity strengthens meaning; meaning empowers solutions. The goal is for both of us to understand more fully just what it is about your situation that makes it a problem. For many this discussion alone brings a bit of relief. It feels good to be heard and understood. Next is the process of generating effective solutions. Some will discover that the hard work of therapy begins here. One starts to seriously consider what they must do to ameliorate that problem that we began to understand earlier. Then we choose our course of action. This is difficult. I will help you. We will make a plan. We execute the plan. Did it help? Yes, then what do we do next? No, then we decide which previous step we need to refine. There may have been a problem we failed to identify sooner. We have learned something important though. The techniques used are time honored and supported by research and experience. There is a vast amount of resources to explore. Or we make new ones. I received my education from the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Houston-Clear Lake. I spent over 20 years in an in-patient facility in Texas as an Associate Clinical Psychologist. I have served as therapist to individuals from diverse backgrounds and with unique challenges. Some of the people I have worked with, in an alliance to make their lives at the very least tolerable, are among the coolest and most admirable humans I have ever known. I owe them a lot for the skills I bring here.

Everyone needs help sometimes, but often we don't know where to turn to find an empathetic ear. I will listen to understand, not just to respond. Frequently, our thoughts are the barriers that get in the way of success. I can help you identify the negative or faulty thought patterns that lead to harmful or unproductive behaviors. I have worked to help individuals solve real life problems. My promise to you is that I will do all that I can to be helpful , supportive, and empower you to make sound decisions, making the best investment in your future. I am a Texas based Licensed Professional Counselor. I have over 20 years of experience in helping professions. My goal is to be an effective and empathetic counselor empowering individuals by assisting them to understand and overcome personal, social, and behavioral problems affecting their development such as homelessness, unemployment or underemployment, communication or relationship concerns , self - fulfillment difficulties and managing mental health symptoms and disorders.

Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders. If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in Ralls, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

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 Ralls 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 Ralls area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Ralls 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 Ralls 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 Ralls 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 Ralls, 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 Ralls 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 Ralls 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 Ralls 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 Ralls 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 Ralls 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 79357 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 Ralls 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 Ralls 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 Ralls, 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.

Ralls 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.
