I provide online teletherapy sessions for those struggling with depression, anxiety and trauma. Our therapy sessions focus particularly on
Family Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
Individual Solution Focused Therapy
Teletherapy has been on the rise when it comes to mental health treatment and there is a very good reason for this. For most first time clients, just the idea of going to an office and waiting to be seen can be anxiety provoking. Many worry about whether someone they know will see them at the office, when conducting therapy from the comfort of your home you have more control and more privacy. Additionally, many clients opt to not attend therapy because of transportation issues, work schedule conflicts, school schedules and child care barriers. For example, I see many young mother's who recently gave birth and would rather not disturb their newborn's routine but still wish to practice self-care through therapy.
I think it goes without saying that Texas is a large state with many rural areas that have a lack of access to mental health care. Teletherapy allow those in remote areas of the state to access this much needed care without having to spend an hour or more on the road just attending one session.
Communication is more streamlined due to messaging applications that my practice utilizes for client's who wish to have direct access to their therapist. There are so many other reasons for why Teletherapy is a great option. Bottom line, it allows everyone the opportunity to get mental health care that they want or need without causing more stress than one may already be experiencing.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas. My primary focus includes trauma-informed counseling and cognitive behavioral therapy for adolescents, young adults and military service members. I offer online counseling for Texas residents.
I obtained my Masters degree from Liberty University in 2013 and have over eight years of experience working in community based crisis response as well as working as a therapist at a psychiatric hospital. During this time I noticed a struggle that a majority of my clients and their family were experiencing revolving access to therapy. That is when I decided to offer online therapy and support for patients living in rural areas that lack mental health providers.
I strongly believe in creating and maintaining a non-judgmental setting where my clients feel comfortable speaking with me without fear of what I may think. My belief is that my clients know where they want to go and when they want to get there. I am simply here to provide guidance and directions.
