Practice Information

Our mission at Starlight Counseling is to take the guesswork out of life. Our team of licensed professional counselors works in a collaborative environment where you receive the expertise of our entire team, not just the opinion of your individual therapist. Each provider has their own specialty, and during our weekly consultation meetings is able to increase their skills by observing and collaborating with experts in a variety of mental health topics.

Our goal is to help you gain new insight into your inner world where you can discover "eureka" moments that become the catalyst for lasting change in your life. Therapy with Starlight is about more than discovering the "why" behind your visits with us, anyone can lookup depression symptoms or any other mental health concern online, but to truly learn and understand how that specific "why" works inside you, physically, emotionally, and intellectually. Once you reach this level of understanding about yourself, we find that most clients start to use existing coping skills in more productive and meaningful ways. New coping skills become increasingly useful much sooner as you continue to understand your own patterns.

Therapy with Starlight Counseling is about taking an intentional and focused look at your habits, environment, thoughts, feelings, and many other factors that let you build confidence in your plan for mental health and wellness starting with your first appointment.


What services does your practice offer?

Starlight Counseling & Consulting provides full service individual, couples, family, and play therapy both in person and via telehealth. Our counselors are licensed in TX, CA, and NY state with physical offices located in Frisco, TX and Clifton Park, NY (coming soon). Each therapist is a specialist in at least 1 area of therapy, and also works with general mental health concerns. Our full time office staff is available to help you choose your therapist if you are uncertain where to begin, and can support you as your needs change over time by matching you with a new therapist as you grow and need a new perspective in the future. Our team is dedicated to supporting the entire family and support system if needed, and our play therapist, family specialists, and individual counselors work as a team to ensure you receive high quality healthcare all under one roof.

What are your practice's specialties?

The therapists at Starlight Counseling work with a variety of common areas of concern including: anxiety, depression, trauma, life transitions, career challenges, school issues, relationships, parenting, and more. We have specialists with advanced certifications and trainings in: trauma for PTSD and other complex traumas (using: post-induction therapy, EMDR, revisioning), addiction (substance use and behavioral addictions), eating disorders, autism spectrum, play therapy, and relationship counseling. We also offer specialized counseling services for small business owners and business executives, professional athletes, and aviation professionals.

Why should I choose your practice?

The Starlight Counseling difference is simple, when you come to Starlight you are supported by the entire team, not just one therapist. You may only ever hear from your specific therapist, but they are working behind the scenes with their peers to ensure that your treatment plan is the most beneficial that it can be for you. Many group practices may have numerous providers, but typically those providers work in isolation from one another. At Starlight Counseling our team works together with ongoing support and supervision, we meet regularly as a team to discuss special needs and to ensure that our providers give evidence-based care and don't get caught up in an echo-chamber of last decades trends.

How does payment work at your practice?

We believe in access and affordability for mental health care, we are in-network with most major health insurance plans and for most clients the cost is the same as if you are seeing your primary care doctor. We offer a range in fees ($85-$300 per session) depending on the provider and service requested. Most clients without insurance are being seen for $150-$160 per session, and we offer a sliding scale for those with financial need that would not otherwise be able to afford therapy. If we are out of network with your insurance we can provide assistance utilizing your out of network benefits.
