The Greek word for “counselor” is “Paraklete.” Think “two pairs of shoes.”
It literally refers to a person who comes to walk alongside. Too many people
attempt to journey down all the paths alone. There are times, and paths, when we need someone alongside to encourage, support, and help us.
Our symbol is the compass, since our goal is to help people walk the path when they need us.
Making the decision to come to counseling (as well as the counseling process itself) can be pretty difficult. Maybe everyone needs some counseling from time-to-time, but it takes a certain amount of health to get it! We applaud you for looking… so here is some information about us that will hopefully help you make your decision wisely with all the information you need:

Back to the Greek: “Alethia” is the Greek word for “truth – revealed, discovered, to be made known…” We want to help you and those you love discover how to life the fullest life possible.
Chris Legg, LPC. I am the owner/operator and the lead therapist at Alethia. I have been counseling since 1996. I love to come alongside to challenge and encourage people to live in freedom! I started counseling in Tyler in 2001, and have continued to have a passion for this community. Coming to counseling is hard, and it takes courage, but I have sought to gather a team of therapists who are caring, professional and competent to come alongside us when we need a hand… and we all have times like that. Take a big step toward a free-er, full-er life. www.chrismlegg.com
Millie Tanner, LPC. As a Licensed Professional Counselor I see people who have different backgrounds, struggles, and ways of coping. Pain can come from broken relationships, cold marriages, or the devastation of losing someone we love. In those times a therapist can give encouragement and insight by asking the right questions to lead to a healthier way of living. Through this many find freedom as light is shined on dark places in their lives. www.tannertherapy.com
Zach Herrin, LPC. I have been a counselor in some capacity for the last eight years. To recognize where you are gives you the freedom and choice to leave where you are. Working with men and teens are high on my list, but I also love to help families and couples. The counseling process can be encouraging and discouraging all at the same time but I believe from personal experience it can make all the difference… when we take the first step in asking for help. www.herrincounseling.com
Keely Burks, LPC. My desire is to see marriages healed and parent and child relationships reconciled. I consider myself blessed to come alongside people as they discover the truth of who they are, choosing not to believe the lies they previously subscribed to. www.keelyburkscounseling.com
Amy Waters, LPC. Hebrew wisdom tells us that “in an abundance of counselors there is safety.” The decision to seek counseling is both wise and brave. It is a joy and a privilege to come alongside people in this way. There are few things more rewarding that seeing people get in touch with the truth and be transformed by it. www.amywaterscounseling.com
Allison Cooper, LPC: I am an LPC with experience helping individuals, couples, and families. My Supervisor is Jennifer Brown. I enjoy working as a team with clients to help them gain perspective, insight, and self-confidence when facing challenges. It is my philosophy that through the therapeutic relationship clients can gain strength and find peace.
Josh Berger, LPC: Life is full of storms. The ebbs and flows they bring can leave anyone feeling shipwrecked. My role as a counselor is a grounding one: to equip and enable you to see light through the darkness. Together we pursue truth and beauty and lasting freedom. www.bergercounseling.com
Debra Henderson, LPC: It takes courage and strength to ask for help. I have great admiration for the person who can admit they are in a “stuck” place, and choose to seek professional input. I am always honored when given the privilege to come alongside a person’s journey toward greater mental health. As a licensed professional counselor with NCC status and certification in trauma therapy, I have great faith in your ability to accomplish the task before you; therefore; I have worked extremely hard to acquire the necessary skills to assist you in the journey toward wholeness in body, soul (mind, will, emotions), and spirit.
Molly Moore, LPC-Intern: I am an LPC-Intern, under the supervision of Chris Legg, and have experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and couples. I view counseling as a partnership where you, the client, and I, the counselor, work together to bring health to all areas of your life. I believe it is extremely important to take a holistic approach that not only examines the mental or relational issues you may be facing, but also the spiritual and physical issues, as well, to find a greater sense of healing and purpose.
And here is our newest member of the team:
