Counseling is not one size fits all. All clients have unique needs and preferences for their health and wellness care. It's okay to not "click" with every therapist you meet. Having a solid therapeutic relationship is essential to productive counseling. At the foundation of therapy is trust, understanding, and compassion.
Therapy is also not forever. The amount of sessions you'll attend is dependant on your needs and commitment to attend sessions. The average amount of sessions attended are about 12 sessions for clients with lower level of care needs. My goal as a therapist to inspire hope, collaborate in healing and help find harmony so that you can feel confident to journey on you own again. I will never recommend more services for individuals who do not need it.
My approach is centered around seeing each client as a whole person with needs that are interwoven and affected by all areas of life. At the heart of my approach is integrative mental health which I complement with mindfulness-based practices and the creative arts.
*I am not a medical practitioner. I am a Licensed professional counselor - Associate with specialized training in integrative mental health. The state of Texas law allows professional counselors to provide wellness information but does not provide professional counselors with the ability to prescribe.
** I am NOT an emergency mental health care provider. Call 988 for crisis and suicide prevention.
*** I offer general wellness information online. It is not always applicable to everyone. Consult a credible professional for individualized health care services.
****I do not provide services through social media platforms. Due to the importance of your confidentiality and the importance of minimizing dual relationships, I do not accept friend or contact requests from current or former clients on any social networking site (Facebook, LinkedIn, etc). I believe that adding clients as friends or contacts on these sites can compromise your confidentiality and our respective privacy. It may also blur the boundaries of our therapeutic relationship. If you have questions about this, please bring them up when we meet and we can talk more about it.
