Going for a swim can be a ton of fun, or it can be a physical workout. There’s a considerable difference between splashing in the water and swimming laps. White Settlement, Texas is home to one incredibly cool water park where you can do both. Like life, it gives you the chance to relax and play, or work hard and break a sweat.

However you choose to use White Settlement’s water park and its other amenities, it’s important to know you should take care of your mental health needs too, whether they’re as small as getting splashed or as tricky as treading water. Consider contacting a nearby mental health professional today.

5 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Welcome to the start of your new life. My name Michelle Williams, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Dallas, Texas. With today's stigma and false beliefs about counseling, many individuals go without help. Others wait till all else fails before getting help. However, no matter when you seek help you should be able to do so with a professional who is willing to understand and listen to your story and help you on a journey to finding your better you. I have a masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2015 and a MA in Human Service Counseling: Crisis Response and Trauma from Liberty University in 2016. While my education offered me the tools and skills to be a counselor, my personal life experiences and my interaction with clients have increased my passion for helping others in need. I am currently a counselor at Christian Works for Children where I work with children, teens, adults, and couples who are seeking to understand that point in life where everything seems to be at a standstill and help to figure out what’s needed to jump-start life again. I am also the owner of private practice geared towards serving the community offering affordable counseling to those in need. My approach to counseling is allowing the client the ability to narrate and edit their own story. Through psychoanalysis, the client is able to read, write, narrate, and rewrite their life scripts offering them the opportunity through cognitive-behavioral techniques the ability to change any situation in their lives by breaking down their stories and their beliefs surrounding their stories and the challenges they believe are hindering them. I allow the client to build and structure the counseling session in a way that it’s not like your normal counseling but more like a quiet place to think, a place to laugh, a place to shed those much needed tears, and an opportunity to take off the day to day mask we hide behind and just be. Therefore, no matter the issue: depression, anxiety, stress, work, family, PTSD, physical or emotional abuse, domestic violence, sexual abuse, trauma, personality disorder, schizophrenia, marital problems, or just someone to vent to, I’m here.

Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in White Settlement or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns.

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

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in White Settlement?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a White Settlement 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.

White Settlement therapists 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 White Settlement therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a White Settlement counselor?

Before seeing your White Settlement 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 while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in White Settlement.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy 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 from a therapist. A White Settlement 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 with a White Settlement counselor 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 that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor 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 therapist 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 White Settlement, 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 during telehealth appointments?

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.
