Jeremy Douglas
Self Pay Rate: $99

Jeremy Douglas, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Jeremy Q. Douglas is a state-licensed professional counselor (LPC) with over 8 years of experience helping teens and adults cope with their anxiety, depression, anger, stress, and relationship difficulties.

Jeremy began his work as a therapist in a psychiatric hospital working with dementia patients in West Texas. He spent five years in the psychiatric setting providing care to patients and their loved ones. In 2004, he earned his Bachelor's degree in education from Wayland Baptist University. As an educator, Jeremy learned what it meant to first listen, plan and then address the needs of students. This helped him transition into the mental health field, earning him a Master of Arts degree in Counseling in 2013, also from Wayland Baptist University.

Jeremy believes that a client is the most important piece in the growth process, by taking the reins to their well-being. He also believes that the therapeutic process is a joint effort. A therapist can not be who they are, without the willingness and vulnerability of a client. Together, both can seek and accomplish the goals and outcomes that will give the client what they desire—happiness. As an African American male and therapist, he understands the complexities and struggles associated with finding out who you are, where you fit in, and how best to facilitate your own happiness.

Brandy Messiah is a board-certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP-BC) with a mission to deliver quality mental health care to individuals and their families by providing a safe, nonjudgmental environment to foster a strong therapeutic alliance with the patient and/or family. Brandy began a nursing career in 2009 as a Registered Nurse (RN) and spent the next 10 years as a bedside nurse in emergency medicine, psychiatry (outpatient programs & inpatient hospitals), long-term intensive care units (ICU), step-down ICU/cardiac/telemetry, home-health, and hospice.

Throughout her nursing career Brandy witnessed the many disparities in the delivery and approach to mental health issues.
