Elizabeth believes it is vital that each client have a treatment plan that is tailored to meet their specific needs and considers it a privilege to help each of her clients on their path to inner healing.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service in a professional, caring, nonjudgmental and confidential online environment. Each of us has a unique journey and an individual path. I am dedicated to helping people with different challenges move toward a more enriching and happier life. Together, we will explore the path behind and the path ahead. I will serve as your guide, helping you to clear the way to better days ahead through greater awareness and emotional healing. In our work together, I will draw upon integrated therapies, a combination of cognitive behavioral (CBT), relational, interpersonal and psychodynamic techniques that aid in learning new and more functional coping mechanisms, emotional regulation, and mind-body health. Positive psychology is a personal passion of mine and during therapy I will utilize techniques that encourage you to identify and further develop your own positive emotions, experiences, and character traits. It is my belief that people can improve their lives by expressing their authentic selves and together we will work toward that goal. My treatment specialties include: depression, anxiety, trauma (PTSD), abuse, and relationship issues. I specialize in working with young women experiencing depression and/or self-esteem problems related to relationship issues, life changes or trauma. I have extensive experience working with men and women who have suffered physical and sexual abuse. I obtained my Psy.D. at Fairleigh Dickinson University in 2005 and my M.A. in Psychology at New York University (NYU) in 2001. I obtained my B.A in Psychology and Sociology at Dominican College in 1998. Before becoming a provider for iTherapyRX, I was a clinical psychologist at a Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey. I am also an adjunct professor of graduate-level psychology courses for an online university.

“During times of stress, loss, and uncertainty, we sometimes find it necessary to seek assistance to help get us back on track. Incorporating God’s Word into counseling helps bring about positive change that gets us back on track. In acknowledging that we are all sinners and in need of God’s grace, we can walk together as God’s children to provide encouragement, comfort and strength to overcome life’s obstacles. Through the guidance of prayer and the Holy Spirit, Christian counseling uses God’s truths to break through strongholds and misbeliefs that keep us from enjoying relationships with God and each other.
Sherry has counseled individuals with Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorders, Mood Disorders, Personality Disorders, Adjustment Disorders, Separation Anxiety, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive, Borderline personality, Academic Underachievement, Anger Management, Anxiety or Fears, Asperger’s Syndrome, Attention Deficit (ADHD), Behavioral Issues, Coping Skills, Loss, Grief, Peer Relationships, Self Esteem, Oppositional Defiance, Parenting, Relationship Issues, Marital counseling, and Spirituality. She has worked with individuals and families and provides couples counseling. She has worked with children, adolescents, and adults.
Sherry believes that “The goal of counseling is to bring about positive change in the hearts and thoughts of each individual. This change also includes a well roundedness and balance of social, emotional, physical, and spiritual health. When counseling, you can expect to be treated with value for who you are as a person. You can expect to be respected for your experiences, background, culture, and ethnicity. Through counseling, you can expect to be part of and take part in the direction and distance of your recovery and restoration. Together, we can share this journey.”
I don’t just want you to feel better; I want you to be better!
I am excited to work with you and believe that you can be the person you were meant to be. I view each client is unique and therefore I tailor my approach to meet your individual needs. I am an interactive/hands on therapist and often use creative ways to help you overcome obstacles. We will work as a team to empower you to have more self-awareness, set boundaries, resolve underlying issues, and learn better coping skills. **Note, I have extensive experience with self-esteem issues, guilt, women’s issues, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, crisis and trauma.
About my Career: I obtained my 9+ years clinical experience in psychiatric facilities (clients who were suicidal, psychotic, severely depressed, detox and PTSD), residential facilities (severely emotionally disturbed children and youth including probation), private practice (families, couples, children, adults, pre-marital counseling) and non-profit setting (families, adults, crisis, relationship issues, couples).
Drew has a Master of Arts Degree in Community Counseling, with an emphasis in addictions from Appalachian State University. He has experience helping people work through guilt, stress, fears, relationship issues, boundary setting, self care, self esteem and many others.
People who feel confident, accepted, capable, loved, productive, and respected are generally considered to be “well-adjusted.” But what would you say about someone who feels unlovable, ashamed, worthless or defective? Probably everyone feels bad about themselves from time to time, such as when you get laid off from a job. But what if it is every day or every week? We are taught to keep these feelings bottled up, but at the same time they are poisoning us from the inside. We are told that no one really wants to know when we are having a bad day, especially when that “bad day” is nearly every day. Remember, if it causes you distress, it is worth discussing with a counselor, that’s what we are here for. Do not wait until these things cause major problems in your life.
Drew would like to talk with you about solutions if you feel: useless, unimportant; unlovable; worthless; incompetent; insecure; defective; abandoned; left out; stupid; guilt ridden; and / or ashamed. You may feel: Other people do not care about me; do not notice me; do not respect me; do not appreciate me; reject me; take advantage of me; do not want me around; and / or look down on me. No one should feel this way, but it takes more than simply willing yourself to “put on a happy face,” or singing “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.”

I believe that love is more powerful than fear. Love is the most healing energy there is. This is the foundation in my work with clients.
You have taken the most challenging first steps- using strength to reach out and being willing to create change. I believe the primary goal of therapy is increased self-awareness. You may have parts of yourself that you are unconscious of, that you don’t understand or that you believe that you can’t change. Those perceptions can lead you to living a life that may not be in your best interest- causing painful experiences in your romantic, social, work and family relationships and ultimately preventing you from sharing your authentic self and sharing who you are meant to be in the world.
My approach to therapy is to uncover the blocks to achieving your goals. Curious about yourself? Interested in changing the difficulties in your life? Want a more fulfilling life? If so, I can help you explore, confront and shift what stands in the way of having a life you love. I will work with you to reclaim your strongest life force as you address your human and life challenges.
What I bring to our partnership comes from extensive training and experience as a licensed clinical social worker. Most importantly, my most valuable education has come from my private practice. It has provided me the privilege of working with people who have taught me about love, courage and resilience.
Whether you are someone who can’t find a satisfying intimate relationship, whether you are someone with a history of pain, or whether you experience sadness, fear, anger, loss, trauma, serious health issues or addiction struggles, I hope you consider allowing me to help you achieve a more joyful and fulfilling life.
"What is it you want to change in your life?" That’s the first question I will ask you when we begin our conversation. As a therapist, I am here to do whatever I can to remove roadblocks and ease your way to the life you want - and deserve - to lead..
Though I am trained in all aspects of mental and emotional health, I specialize in:
• Helping anxiety sufferers find their confidence in themselves.
• Helping people who are depressed find hope.
• Helping engaged couples prepare for marriage.
• Helping parents and teens communicate productively.
• Helping college students transition successfully into university life.
You want relief from the stress you’re experiencing right now. I’m here to give you that relief as quickly
and painlessly as possible. Contact me today and let’s talk about how I can help you.
I practice counseling in accordance with jurisdictional boundaries. Currently, I am only licensed to practice counseling in the state of Texas with Texas residents. If we begin a consultation while I am online but you are not a Texas resident, I will happily assess your needs and refer you to another great counselor on our site. I am available to consult (advise) parents throughout the U.S. on issues that affect their teenagers such as communication skills, explaining the teenaged mind, divorce recovery, step-parenting, relocation adjustment, and more.
I can’t wait to help you get started on your better life journey!
I graduated in 1994 from Hunter College School of Social Work with a Masters Degree in Clinical Social Work. I’m a Licensed Clinical Worker and I’ve worked as a psychotherapist in various settings helping people to improve their lives and psychological well being.
I have over 15 years of experience in helping people deal with challenges in their lives. I look forward to helping others heal and put zest back into their lives.
Whether I am assisting individuals, couples, or groups, I believe that a positive attitude can make a tremendous difference in what happens in our lives and in our relationships. As a psychotherapist, I have helped many clients improve the quality of their lives and relationships. A positive attitude is a decision to live life fully and also allows us to heal the pain which we have in our hearts.
Whatever sadness, challenges or difficulties you are experiencing in your personal or relationship life, I hope to be able to help you seek a better outcome, and provide tools for transforming your life. I provide counseling for people dealing with depression, anxiety, family issues, addiction and coaching to assist with life transitions, relationships and parenting. I also have written blogs to provide helpful tools to living a happy and fulfilling life. I look forward to helping people put energy and emotional healing in their lives.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have been in private practice for almost thirty years. I work with individuals and couples on anxiety, depression, separation and divorce, parenting, communication, grief and loss, and chronic illness. I am also a certified mediator and have extensive experience in conflict resolution.
Most of the issues that bring people into a counseling relationship can be addressed in three phases:
First is the “WHAT”…what is your situation, problem, experience, etc.
Next is the “SO WHAT”…what effect have these experiences had on your decisions, choices, lifestyle, behavior.
The third is the “NOW WHAT”…where to go from here. My experience in solution oriented, brief therapy has led to an emphasis on the “now what” and the changes that can make such a big difference in your life.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in social work from Nazareth college in Rochester, N.Y. and worked in a state hospital and in a public health hospital. I received my Master’s degree in special Education, emotional disturbances and learning disabilities, from Arizona State university in Tempe, AZ. I was licensed as a Licensed Professional counselor in 1983, and have been in private practice in the Dallas area since then. I work with individuals, couples, and adolescents on a wide variety of issues, including anxiety and depression, separation and divorce, parenting, communication, grief and loss, and chronic illness. I am a certified mediator and also a Board Certified Life Coach.
I have seen phone counseling and on-line counseling be very effective and I would welcome the opportunity to work with you.
Jade holds a Masters of Arts in Counseling from Richmont Graduate University and a Board Certification in Christian Counseling. She enjoys bringing insights that provide direction and wellness. Her aim is to help people find self-acceptance, mental clarity and emotional rest. She is a big proponent of hope, and believes that new beginnings are always possible.
Jade is a counselor, speaker and writer who enjoys teaching individuals and groups. She communicates on issues of mental health and spiritual growth and recently released the book, The Heart’s Journey to Freedom, a guide for letting go of unhealthy emotional attachment. She successfully treats a wide variety of issues and specializes in work with women, relationships, and adolescents.
While counseling sessions differ from person to person, here are some common avenues Jade takes with clients:
• Identifying, healing and finding greater freedom from old wounds
• Replacing thoughts that are unhealthy with real and positive truths
• Learning new ideas and understanding your situation more clearly
• Acquiring daily, practical tools to create & maintain new ways of being
• Uncovering a sense of renewal and direction into a new, better future
If it is desired, Jade incorporates discussion about God into the healing and change process, as well as the use of prayer. She respects the individual and his or her background, and brings in spiritual tools only when it is of interest.
Jade is also educated in areas of natural treatments and physical care that can aid the mind with issues related to anxiety, depression and stress, especially when used alongside counseling.
Many people can be hesitant to enter counseling, especially if for the first time. Sessions with Jade are personable and comfortable. Clients simply share what they desire to and are guided along step by step. Sessions can be looked at as talking with a caring friend who is trained in human behavior.
Some people have had counseling in the past and it was not a positive experience, when it was meant to be a place of safety and genuine care. Jade is committed to bringing a respectful and compassionate experience that guides others somewhere better than where they have been.
