I was in the United States Marine Corps from 1998-2003 and during this time I learned a great deal about myself and became more culturally diverse. During my third year of service, I was injured at Officers Candidate School and realized that I needed to develop my counseling skills, so I worked with an agency that counseled teens regarding their addiction. I have been in the social services field for the past twenty years and have been licensed for the past 10 years. When I got out of the Marines in 2003, I went home to North Carolina and my father passed away three days later unexpectedly so, I needed a job and I was able to use my previous years working with teens and became a supervisor at Sipes Orchard Home took in unwanted children from parents, Level II and Level IV agencies, and the Department of Children and Families. After being here at this facility for two years I left as they weren't following the Medicaid standards. I left the agency and went to work for The Cognitive Connection as the Prevention Supervisor providing preventive services for teens and was part of the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) providing groups to adults. I worked with Cognitive Connection for three years and left to go to Pensacola, Florida because I had heard they were starting a MSW program. I felt hopeful as I knew getting my master’s in social work would change my life forever. After I finished the MSW program I immediately started working for Lakeview Services in Adult Outpatient Community Mental Health and then worked in the Drug Court program. I stayed here for three years until I got a job with the DoD in Oklahoma because my wife was trying to get a federal job, so I moved to support her and my family. While working with the DoD I was able to get my supervision for licensing, created an anger management program for the DoD, and stayed until my LCSW license was finalized in December of 2013. When I came back to Florida I worked for Volunteers of America for a couple of years until a federal job opened at Veterans Affairs in Pensacola, FL, in August of 2016. I have been licensed in Florida for the past 10 years, recently became licensed in Texas and Oklahoma. I have some clients who are in therapy with me for several weeks to several months depending on their individual needs. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!

Hello, my name is Delora I believe that people may sometimes need help in many areas of their lives, therefore I treat with a Person-Centered, wholistic approach. With this approach the therapist treats the whole person and is instrumental to the changes of the client but is not directly responsible for any change. The Person-Centered Therapist gently guides clients to break self-imposed barriers that block self-determination and growth. I integrate techniques of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Reality and Solutions Focused Therapies to help clients challenge maladaptive thinking patterns. It is my hope to join you as a fellow traveler as you take a journey mental health, physical wellness, spiritual restoration and emotional stability.

It is fair to say there are a lot of stressors in our society, some so large they can have a huge impact on how we enjoy and navigate our lives. I'm here to tell you it isn't all in your head, you're not alone, and it is ok to ask for help. I am a licensed clinical social worker offering virtual therapy to individuals in Louisiana and Texas. I utilize a client-centered approach, meaning you are the expert in your own life and I am here only to assist you in reaching your goals. Trauma-informed care is a very important part of the services I provide, as I specialize in working with survivors of trauma, with expertise in abuse and assault. I believe it is necessary to acknowledge traumatic experiences throughout our lives and how those experiences may shape our worldview. Trauma is incorporated into the majority of the work I do with clients, it looks different for us all but it exists in some capacity. I am lucky to have had opportunities in my career that have allowed me to expand my practice to include working with individuals experiencing chronic illnesses. I provide a space where folks with chronic illnesses can share openly about the confines of their illnesses and receive validation around those feelings, sometimes for the first time. Most of the time clients are having a very normal reaction to an abnormal situation, no one prepares us for the possibility of chronic illness and little support is available for those who experience it. Lastly, as a queer woman, it is important to me that I provide quality care for LGBTQ teens and adults. Too often, we cannot find providers who hold identities similar to our own. The last few years have allowed me to work with LGBTQ teens in my area and I have learned a great deal from them. I hope to continue this work for some time while growing my practice and providing quality care to anyone who is interested in working with me.

Hello Friend! Everyone, at one point or another may feel weighed down. We may even describe the feeling as 'lost in a web of frustration' dealing with a host of unbearable stressors. Some may describe feeling anxious, fatigue, or sadness, our unique threshold depleted from stress. But did you know anxious energy is normal? Many would not know what is wrong and call it stress. Others as tired. Anxiousness is innate in all of us, used to escape danger. What's not healthy is when stressors cross the threshold of what feels comfortable to interrupt daily habits/responsibilities, leaving us depleted. But how do we 'fix things' when all we want is to be alone? When life throws us lemons, do we make lemonade? YES! As simple as finding a helper - me. I’ll help you navigate the web of confusion to find YOUR empowerment. My journey began as a young child whose home life was a host of struggles/abuse which later became insight into the struggle others experience. In my case, a well-regarded psychotherapist helped me to learn life-long cognitive tools. My work as a psychotherapist began in a clinical setting. I garnered a vast amount of knowledge which helped me to specialize in various modalities of treatment. Proper psychotherapists should emphasize there is no such thing as "the magic pill" and most treatments don't require medication. I hold a high standard for clients' rights as a mental health advocate and a high standard for myself. I serve all slices of society including those dealing with depression, grief, anxiety, relationship issues, past trauma, adjustment, chronic health and other issues. Together, we can identify what's not working for you. We can find solutions you innately use and form goals that do NOT require much change in your life - ultimate healing.

Some of these ways may not be serving you well, and some may actually be causing problems for you, particularly if they were developed in situations where your power was limited.

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.

Hello, I'm Ehsan Ssabahang. Are you navigating the challenges of stress or relationships? Can't shake off that anxiety? Maybe you're also rethinking your career or your relationship with yourself. It's okay; you've found a space where you can explore solutions. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, my background is as varied as my approach. Having worked in non-profits, group settings, and even with students nationwide, I get that life can, at times, throw curveballs. My Military background taught me a lot about life and resilience.

I also integrate mindfulness, yoga, and art to help you develop a stronger relationship with yourself. Whether it's your career, relationships with loved ones, or the most important relationship—the one with yourself—I can support you. I offer you a safe space filled with compassion, free from judgment. I'll provide you with actionable insights and practical tools, drawing from scientifically grounded methods.

Are you feeling stuck in frustrating patterns or struggling to find joy in the monotony of life? Are you easily overwhelmed by emotions? Do you struggle with overthinking, worrying, and obsessing over little things, big things, and everything in between?

I can help you build a life that you feel excited to wake up to each morning. Together, we will create a plan to move you toward your goals, help you break free from the burdens that you carry, and cultivate a life of meaning and purpose.

Hi!! It's never too late to feel better about yourself and about your life! As a holistic therapist I use an integrated method in my practice (e.g. multi-sensory, somatic experiencing, movement, experiential, mindfulness, sound, breath & energy work). We've all heard of the nervous system's fight/flight/freeze response which influence everything from our thoughts, emotions, & behaviors.

Hi I am Brittany currently practicing in Texas. I graduated with my Masters in Counseling Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology in 2019. I have previously worked in residential, IOP, and corrections. I have experience working with individuals, couples, families, and minors who are struggling with issues such as depression, stress, anxiety, trauma responses, sexual concerns, and relationship issues. Do you have changes you wish to make to improve overall mental and emotional health? Beginning therapy can be a challenging first step to making desired changes in life. My goal is to help you learn lifelong coping skills that are necessary for making these desired changes. Exploring thoughts and feelings, practicing self-reflection, gaining greater self-acceptance, and learning ways to improve communication are some techniques I incorporate into therapy. I utilize a combination of collaborative and integrative therapy to aid you on your journey of self-healing, changed behaviors, and personal growth. Together we can find and create balance. I work hard to make sure that you feel safe and supported during this journey. If you feel like we may be a good fit, please do not hesitate to reach out. Asking for help may be the hardest part but the only way out is through. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have and look forward to being a part of your journey.

Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in both Texas and California. I am also a Licensed Sex Offender Treatment Provider in Texas. I completed graduate school at Texas A&M in Corpus Christi, TX. During internship and after graduation I worked with primarily adults undergoing major life changes. From Emerging Adults (18-25-ish) learning how to navigate the new expectations they are facing, mid-life changes including sexuality, children, careers, relationship types, and all the chaos of life, to end of life decisions and stresses as parents pass on, retirement choices have to be made, grandchildren raised, disease, and loss of friends and family. For persons who have spent part of their lives in jails and prisons, navigating the world that changed while you were not active in it is often difficult, helping you take those steps to understanding your new normal is my privilege.

Hello, Welcome to my private practice. My fundamental approach to therapy is person-centered and based on solution-focused methods. I endeavor to provide a safe place for you to feel seen and heard. Together we will explore and learn about your deepest inner world. We will examine your current ways of coping and explore how to transform them to better serve your needs here and now. I can help you uncover the impediments to effectively dealing with the challenges that life can bring and consider alternative approaches that serve you better. On the whole, I see my role as being your guide in helping you identify the optimal and least disruptive path to your answers and your solutions. A guide is not just a fellow traveler – I will occasionally confront and disagree with you – but ultimately it is your path and your goal which I am privileged to witness and, at times, partake. On any fruitful journey, collaboration will be essential, and I am always joyful to begin our trek. I will place my trust in you as you do in me. My ultimate goal is to help you gain the self-esteem and self-compassion necessary to nurture strong and healthy relationships with those you care about in your personal and work life. Significant relationships are subtly re-negotiated every day and I believe no relationship is more important than your relationship with yourself.

Thank you for taking the first step of courage and making yourself a priority today. Opening yourself up and being vulnerable can be a tremendous step to your healing process. As Brene Brown says, “Vulnerability is not winning or losing, it’s having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome.” You are showing up for yourself today! Although the first steps can be overwhelming, I can walk with you and help guide you on the journey of healing and peace. I will always provide a safe space of acceptance and non-judgement for you to share your emotional pain, grow to love and be kind to yourself, and find the peace you deserve to heal. Remember that you are worthy and deserving of being free of the emotional pain you are experiencing. Be kind to yourself. **If you are viewing my profile for your child (3-17 years of age), I provide a calming and accepting space to assist with regulating your child's emotions. If your child is experiencing symptoms of anxiety, ADHD or difficulty focusing due to inattention or hyperactivity, or maybe your child is lacking motivation and seems more irritable and angrier than usual, I will teach your child the tools and strategies they need to cope with their challenges. Together, we can help your child feel happy again. Please view my website at worthytherapyservices.org

My name is Brytni Johnson. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) born and raised in Texas (always in and around "DFW”). I have been working with people: moms and dads; sons and daughters; brothers and sisters; even grandparents for as long as I can remember. I realized just over 12 years ago, I wanted to "help people." I wanted to become educated and trained; learn how to better explore and accentuate my natural skills, while also being able to understand and develop new skills to best assist my clients. In 2012, I graduated with my Bachelor of Social Work. In 2016, I graduated with my Master of Social Work. Shortly after graduating, I obtained my LMSW licensure, and have been practicing in a licensed, professional environment for the past 7 years. After obtaining my license, it was then, my "toolbelt" (yes, toolbelt) gained its first tool. From there, I began working towards building my clinical knowledge in order to obtain my clinical license as a social worker. I obtained my LCSW licensure June 2022; shortly after completing over 3,000 clock hours and over 100 clinical supervision hours.

You took the hardest step today; your healing journey can begin. My name is Kristina (Tina), and I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW). What being a LCSW means to me is that I am a helper. The space I hold for you is individualized to acknowledge you, support you, and encourage you to be your greatest advocate. For trauma, my focus is in helping clients work through the impact trauma has had on their lives. Trauma effects multiple aspects of life: can’t trust or are over-trusting, feelings are too big or too little, sometimes things are just really hard. Your trauma is unique to you deserving a path to healing. ADHD can feel like a rollercoaster of things to do, disorganization, poor time management, feelings all over the place. There is so much more to ADHD than meets the eye. We can learn together what your ADHD is to you. Anxiety can feel like you’re always vibrating on the inside, body and mind feels chaotic. Let’s find out ways to ground, be mindful, breathe. I am accepting new clients. Please contact me directly for help with scheduling. I look forward to working with you.
