First Light Counseling, est. August 2020, is a private practice counseling office located in Southlake, Texas. Our founders, Satchel and Bethany want First Light Counseling to truly be a light in this dark world. We believe in serving our clients well and offering a safe and compassionate environment where important mental and spiritual work can be done. We believe everyone deserves the opportunity to receive healing.
Our standard is one of excellence. We believe that our clients deserve a safe and caring environment to process and gain new tools to help address the battles of this life. Everyone at First Light Counseling is treated with kindness and respect. We hope that by offering grace and acceptance that we may ease any fear or anxieties about seeking therapy in a professional setting. Our team of licensed professional counselors provide therapy to clients from a Christian counseling perspective.
Our focus is to help people find their identity and purpose. We seek to offer tools for trauma, loss, anxiety, addictions, depression, spiritual questions, communication with children and communication in marriage. We work diligently to create a safe and healthy atmosphere for this work to take place. We hope to walk with you on a journey to sustainable spiritual and mental growth and overall well‐being.
Bethany and Satchel have always had a heart for people. Satchel’s heart for seeing people get set free from spiritual bondage, oppression and addiction shines through in his career as a counselor. Satchel and Bethany both have testimonies that point directly to Christ – and prove that His good purposes will prevail, even in the darkest of situations. Satchel and Bethany have three children. Lucy and Landon are five‐year‐old twins, and Cash is a rowdy three‐year‐old. When you run into Bethany or Satchel, be sure to ask about the testimony of the twins’ birth. It is incredible. First Light Counseling is a direct fulfillment of a promise spoken directly to Satchel’s heart by the Lord. Their hope is to steward the promise well and to be a beacon of hope in a dark place for those seeking refuge or help. Isaiah 58:8 is the perfect picture for the vision of First Light Counseling – “Then your light will break out like the dawn and your healing will quickly spring forth.”

At First Light Counseling, LLC we believe that therapy is an investment. The last thing we want is for an insurance company to determine the duration of treatment provided to our clients. Therefore we are not on any insurance panels, nor do we accept any forms of insurance as payment for services.
If an individual chooses to pay with a credit or debit card, First Light Counseling, LLC will charge a service fee of $5 dollars per transaction to the customer. For example, if a session costs $125 per hour the customer will be responsible to pay $130 for the session hour to cover the cost of the service fee.
Several of our clients avoid paying the service fee by writing a check or paying with cash at check out.
