I was born and raised in Texas. I love the Texas Summer nights and Autumn days. I grew up in a blended family of my mother, grandparents, biological brother, and many foster brothers and sisters. Let's just say things were always interesting, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. Those experiences helped shape who I am and gave me insight into a variety of people. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (LPC-S) and a Certified Sex Therapist (CST). I received a Doctorate of Education in Counseling Psychology from Argosy University. I have a Master of Education in Counseling and Human Development from Hardin-Simmons University and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Abilene Christian University. When I'm not counseling, I love to read all things paranormal (i.e. vampires, werewolves, fae, etc.). I enjoy music, different forms of dance and fitness, cooking and eating new dishes, as well as, traveling. Also, I am one third of The RePsychled Podcast, which is a podcast that focuses on educating and bringing mental health awareness to minority communities in a down to earth way.

My name is Richard Spires. I believe in the therapeutic alliance. Counseling is a team effort and we get the best results when we work together. Part of my counseling style is that I take time getting to know you and try to truly understand your issues. I have been to counseling myself and had experiences where I felt the therapist was not trying to understand my problems. I told myself that when I become a counselor, I never want any of my patients to feel like I didn't care. So I take pride in getting to know you and understanding your problems. So whenever you're ready to talk, I'm ready to listen.

Hi, I’m Tia and I approach therapy with the mindset that every client has internal skills that give them the ability to reach personal goals. I am a Licensed Professional counselor (LPC,) and Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC), and I have certifications as a Trauma-informed and Greif-informed professional (CCTP, CGP). I utilize an integrative client-centered approach, where the client takes the lead as the expert on their life and patterns of behaviors, and I help guide the client to uncover causes of core belief systems that fuel areas of concern. My role in this process is to support clients with encouragement while also maintaining accountability for positive change.

Greetings to you and all With a wish for good health and peace in your life. My name is Sherby John. I have been working and learning along this journey, we call life, just as you have. It can be a journey filled with joy and struggle. Have you reached a point where it seems there is more struggle than joy or feel stuck in the muck that seems to only get deeper or harder to transgress? Then maybe it is time to find new paths and options by having a guide on this journey. Therapy can be a vehicle for change and development of workable tools to assist in continuing with this journey. Whether you are dealing with Depression, Life changes, Anxiety, Relationships, Trauma, or a new medical or mental health diagnosis, therapy can be a useful mechanism for support, discernment, and information. I would like to provide you with a safe and welcoming environment and space to relieve yourself of these stressors through working on alternatives to current reactions to triggers or stressors in the way of continuing your journey, your way and at your own pace. Come in. Lets Talk. Lets get to work.

Bitini Pannell, a licensed Professional Counselor in Texas, exhibits a profound dedication to supporting individuals facing mental health challenges, including trauma, depression, anxiety, and stress. Her professional journey, extending over 10 years, has been marked by a deep commitment to providing compassionate and effective care to her clients. Following her academic pursuits, Bitini initiated her career in counseling at a community mental health center, crisis field response, criminal justice/prison systems and hospitals. This role involved delivering therapy to individuals presenting a wide array of mental health concerns, often working with the most underserved and acute populations, thereby enriching her expertise in the field. Bitini's specialization encompasses trauma therapy and somatic therapy, but her therapeutic repertoire extends beyond these. She skillfully integrates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) into her practice. CBT, a widely recognized psychotherapeutic treatment, helps clients identify and challenge distorted cognitions and develop more balanced and constructive thinking patterns. DBT, on the other hand, is particularly effective in teaching skills for emotional regulation, mindfulness, and distress tolerance, especially beneficial for clients with intense emotional responses or those exhibiting self-destructive behaviors. Additionally, Bitini utilizes mindfulness and solution-focused therapy techniques. Mindfulness encourages clients to engage with the present moment in a non-judgmental manner, enhancing their awareness and acceptance of their thoughts and feelings. This approach is instrumental in managing stress and reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression. Solution-focused therapy, with its future-oriented and goal-directed framework, aids clients in identifying and harnessing their strengths and resources to constructively address their problems. Her holistic approach, incorporating both mind and body through somatic therapy, is particularly effective for clients who have endured diverse traumatic experiences. These include childhood trauma, neurodivergence, sexual assault, and domestic violence. Understanding that each client’s experience is unique, Bitini meticulously tailors her therapy to align with their individual experiences and needs.

Welcome! I'm an LCSW and Louisiana native who practices in both, Texas & Louisiana. I’ve worked with a variety of clinical presentations, in various clinical settings. I have experience working with youth, adults, veterans and families. The settings in which I’ve practiced include intense inpatient, clinic, substance use disorder treatment, mental health rehabilitation, correctional rehabilitation facility and school settings. I'm newly EMDR TRAINED. I collaboratively assist clients with improving their self-esteem and self-worth, processing trauma, managing depression and anxiety, challenging negative thought processes, emotion dysregulation, and processing symptoms of grief and mood disorders. This is a collaborative therapeutic process that allows fostering healthy intrapersonal and interpersonal relationships, resolving symptoms of grief and trauma, modifying negative internal narratives, managing anxiety and depression, decreasing emotion dysregulation and dissociating, and fostering one's sense of self. I've worked with adults, families and adolescents who experienced anxiety, depression, family transitions, trauma wounds, anxiety, low self-esteem, PTSD, LGTBQIA transitions, substance use, bipolar mood disorders, personality disorders and several other life challenges etc. I have been so honored to be present throughout my client's journeys of growth, if only to help unburden them from internal suffering. I strive to be both non-judgmental, and collaborative, while challenging those that fear based responses to the environment.
