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.

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!

Life can bring challenging chapters in the narrative of our life. Processing and moving forward from these struggles is possible. You have taken a significant step in reaching out. On my journey of healing, I have faced losses that shook my sense of self and I had to move through experiences I did not believe I would have the strength to recover from. I am a person who is comfortable with the uncomfortable. In fact, because I have had to work through most of my dark times alone, I seek to be a support for individuals when challenges arise. A guiding goal for me is to reduce the number of individuals who have to mirror my lived experience. I am an advocate for expressive arts, strength-based, and body-centered approaches. I have over 20 years combined experience working with children and adolescents, as an educator, artistic director, and counselor. I am honored to be a resource of support for youth and adults experiencing grief and processing traumatic experiences.

Do you feel like you've lost your way, your purpose and identity, or just need to get back on track? Hello! My name is Erie, and I'd love to help you. Social workers typically have an interesting life story and personal experiences with tragedy that tug at our heartstrings. I am no different. At times, I wonder "how is it that I have survived these mountains and valleys?" Despite personal tragedy, loss, and despair, influential people have served as beacons of hope throughout the years in my life. To quote an innovative, and at the time, social outcast, Bill W., he stated: "there is nothing that can replace the power of one alcoholic helping another." Just as this infectious feeling of compassion spreads inside of us as we help another, I began my journey in social work in the most unlikely of places- inside the rooms of AA and NA. Along with my re-creation of self through school, internships, and certifications, I have learned one basic human tenant that would be my guiding light through the most challenging of times: people need people. I realize that this sounds a bit rudimentary, but this is the cornerstone of social work and the secret to my success in beating the statistical odds that accompany a survivor of childhood abuse, drug addiction and alcoholism, military combat trauma, and the loss of a child. So, the question stands: why am I here and what do I want? I simply want to pay it forward as many have done for me. I would have never expected to be where I am or doing what I'm doing. I personally believe that there is hope and light in the most desperate, dark places and recesses of the human soul. For that reason, I bet on the underdog, society's undeserving, and those with whom all other plans have failed. I find that my reward and inner satisfaction comes with doing for others when all else has failed and all others have given up. For this reason, I will keep doing for others, because they are worth it.

I am a licensed clinical social worker, licensed in Florida, Texas, Iowa and Wisconsin, who has worked in outpatient, intensive outpatient, residential and inpatient settings, in mental health, addiction and eating disorder fields. My approach in therapy integrates holistic, expressive, developmental attachment theory and traditional evidence-based approaches. I have had a broad experience working with children, teens, emergent adults, as well as parents and families. Prior to graduate school, I worked in the art field and continues to integrate expressive arts into her practice with clients. I received my Master of Clinical Social Work degree from Florida Gulf Coast University in 2014. During graduate school and since graduation, my focus has been on trauma resolution. Julia was initially trained in trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral therapy and now in Rapid Resolution therapy, which is an approach that achieves memory reconsolidation, without re-traumatization in as few as 1-2 sessions. I was trained in Rapid Resolution therapy in 2017 and have used the techniques with clients in a variety of settings. Although I enjoy working with clients on a variety of issues, my specialization is in eating disorders, mood and trauma-related disorders with 3+ years experience working in higher levels of care in the eating disorder field. I am passionate about helping my clients find body liberation, food freedom and recovery from eating disorders. Follow: IG @juliathompsontherapy

Hello! I am a Doctor of Marriage & Family Therapy and currently a Licensed Professional Counselor. I currently have 8 years of counseling/clinical experience. As a LPC, my style is warm, non-judgmental, and compassionate. I use a mix of solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral, narrative, and person-centered therapies. I aim to make clients feel comfortable and at ease while being attentive and open. I specialize in both outpatient and inpatient services treating military/veteran populations, PTSD/trauma, substance abuse disorders and addiction, co-occurring disorders, anxiety/depression/stress, ADHD, sports psychology and performance anxiety with student/professional athletes, and family/couples/relational and intimate relationships. Additionally, I have specialized experience in conducting clinical assessments of substance abuse patients, formulating behavioral health treatment plans, providing professional counseling to substance abuse patients, treating psychological conditions associated with medical complications, performing biopsychosocial/psychological evaluations of clients, developing behavioral health treatment plans, and providing psychotherapy for adolescents, teenagers, adults, couples, and family populations. There are countless theories, modalities, and orientations in the therapy world. This can be very confusing for those who simply are unsure what fits them. My biggest takeaway from this journey of mine is that it is not so much about a theory but rather active listening, creating context, and simply being there with the individual(s) looking for different perspectives to help guide a client to move forward is really what therapy is all about. I look forward to guiding you on your journey of faith, hope and wellness!

It is my hope that people will take away from sessions feeling supported, cared for, listened to, not alone, comforted, encouraged, and with a spark of faith that it is ok to have the courage to hope again.

I lead with a compassionate, trauma-informed, strength-based, and person-centered approach. Outside the therapy space, I enjoy arts and crafts, aromatherapy (especially a great-smelling candle!), and laughing with loved ones.

Hey there! My name is Alyson Morgan, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and clinical supervisor. Throughout my career, I have dedicated myself to making a positive impact on the lives of individuals and families in need. For three years, I devoted myself to being a full-time therapist in private practice. During this time, I developed a particular interest in working with children and adolescents in the foster care system, as well as those affected by trauma. In 2020, I left my therapeutic practice and joined a local university as a full-time instructor in the social work program; driven by my commitment to professional growth, I graduated with my DSW (Doctorate in Social Work) in January 2023, with an emphasis on teaching, leadership, and clinical practice. Through educating future social work students, I realized my passion is helping others achieve their highest potential through the art of therapy and fostering therapeutic relationships.

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

Welcome! I am Mayra Ramos, LCSW Seeking counseling can be quite nerve wrecking, not knowing what to expect, and often doubting that it will actually help. But, counseling doesn't have to be so complicated. Counseling is about building a trusting relationship with your therapist, knowing that you can talk about anything that comes to mind. You don't have to second doubt yourself, as counseling is all about you. It's a place where you will be understood, where you will be listened to, supported, and where the ultimate goal is to increase your overall well being. I strive to provide clients with a safe and comforting environment, where they are free to express themselves. Clients will be able to explore their thoughts, current situations, address stressors, life changes, relationship conflicts, grief, and a multitude of issues. Together we will work to set boundaries, improve relationships, increase healthy coping skills, and live a more joyful life.

I chose to change careers late in life. It has been a wonderful decision. I am able to help people in their daily lives be happy. I attended SMU Counseling Program in Plano from 2010 to 2013. I was privileged to complete my practicum and internship at the Resource Center in Dallas. I requested this opportunity so I could help as many people as possible. This was not standard procedure, but I was allowed to do the unusual. I believe clients simply want to be happy. They want to make their choices in life without guilt or shame. Everyone deserves that freedom. I hope that I can help people facilitate that life. I am happy to share techniques that provide acceptance that allow people to not be impacted by the judgmental world in which we live.

Have you ever looked at your reflection and wondered who you are? Do you ever feel lost or wonder where you are headed? CONFESSION -- I have. I realized later in life that my calling was to become a therapist. I received on-the-job training, long before I went to college, through my own experiences as a mother, wife, friend, colleague, and personally, as an individual with depression and anxiety. These experiences helped prepare me for my role as a therapist. My own struggles have enabled me to better connect with my clients. Just like my clients, I looked for a therapist to talk to, one who would listen and understand where I was coming from. Finding a therapist can be a challenge. The challenge involves talking to a complete stranger about your life while discussing some of the hardest times of your life. From personal experience, I know the gains that can be made in therapy and the road to self-discovery. Treatment Focus I have experience working with a wide variety of populations and specialize in helping adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, mood disorders, and bipolar disorder. My primary approach in working with clients tends to be person-centered along with cognitive behavioral therapy. Core beliefs are areas of focus I encourage clients to explore. Oftentimes, individuals may not recognize how their thinking patterns have affected numerous areas in their life. I help clients to conceptualize the life that they want and consider the action steps to make that life happen. Yes, therapy can take time and effort, but if the payoff is discovering the best version of yourself, then is it not worth it? Patient Promise One thing that I can ensure, is that I will provide a safe space for you to discover beliefs. Beliefs that you may have about yourself and the world around you. I am passionate about helping individuals explore who they are and what they want. If you are ready to begin this journey, I would be honored to work with you.
