Hello! My name is Chavon and I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Texas. I have over 5 years experience working in the mental health field. I have worked in a variety of settings including schools, partial care, outpatient, in-home, and individual sessions. Although that seems like a mouthful, it simply means that I have had experience working with a broad range and severity of clinical issues. I have the most experience working with depression, anxiety, family/relationship conflicts, grief, and self esteem/love. I also have experience working with intellectual/developmental disabilities, behavioral issues and autism .
My dedication to the field of mental health stems from my personal experience with it. I had the personal experience of losing a child. When this happened a counselor helped me put the pieces of my life back together. I found purpose in this experience and knew that helping others through this painful process was a way I could give back.
I have also personally overcome some mental health challenges, too. I know firsthand that getting help can be a challenge. There is still so much stigma around having mental health issues, the process for getting help can be overwhelming, and it can feel so frustrating and lonely. However, I also know from experience how much life can change for the better when you find support and take steps towards taking care of yourself!
I use a person-centered, self compassionate, multicultural, and integrative approach in treatment. This means I begin where you are and tailor the treatment approach to your needs while being sensitive to how your individual cultural identities and lifestyle choices impact your experience. I primarily use evidence based techniques including cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused counseling. However, I do incorporate more "classical" approaches to counseling as well.
I would describe my style as warm and supportive, and I am ready to help you tackle your struggle head-on. Collaboration is important - together we can work on establishing concrete goals and steps for you to help overcome your current problems. If you are looking for quick fixes, I am not the best counselor to work with. I believe in taking time and working on wellness slowly, holistically, and consistently. Just as physical health takes time and consistency, so does mental health. I look forward to helping you in any way I can!

Chavon is awesome and knows how to relate to whatever I am going through. Her ability to put my thoughts into a better organized understanding is what I like so much about her !!
I appreciate all she did for me.
Chavon saved my life. After my partner of 7 years abandoned me, I didn’t have no will to live or any sense of who I was or even my purpose. Chavon came in sent by the angels at better help and picked me up the floor. She helped me learn how to put each broken piece together without judgement. Chavon helped me come back to life stronger, with self love and a strong idea of who I am and what I must do. Chavon is a blessing on this app, in her professional career and anywhere she is. I am deeply thankful for now I have so much to live for, and all those have my name on it. Thank you chavon for taking me through a journey of healing and self discovery
Chavon is professional, knowledgeable, and highly supportive. I had never done counseling before, and wasn’t sure what to expect, but Chavon has made me feel comfortable opening up, and given me several coping mechanisms for anxiety. I look forward to our weekly sessions!
Chavon is very relatable. She makes me feel very comfortable. Almost like talking to one of my close friends minus the judgement. She is great!
Chavon is amazing! She is always there when I need her. She is the outside perspective I needed on my problems. She understands my primary concerns, helps me look at them in a way I never thought possible, and I am definitely feeling the healing process beginning. Thank you so much, Chavon.
Amazing listener, gives great advice and understands how Aspies work
I enjoy my sessions with Chavon. She is very understanding and patient while aiding me in finding positive solutions to concerns I have. I look forward to working with her more as well as gaining insight about myself.
Chavon is a great therapist. She helps facilitate a trusting and judgement free space in which I don’t feel the need to hide myself and also offers guidance that I reflected on even after two sessions. I highly recommend and look forward to our upcoming sessions!
I can recommend Chavon as friendly, emphatic and not judgemental. I've had her as my counsellor for some time and appreciate everything what she's done for me. She is really good, caring and I'm happy she's been a part of my life.
I think that chavon is amazing! She keeps things real and respectful while focusing on really getting you to the place you need to be mentally . She provides an atmosphere that is as comfortable as talking to a home girl but a home girl with great advice and expertise in helping your internal conflicts. .. I highly recommend
This is the first time I've ever done therapy and I'm so happy I got her.. Talking to her is like talking to a friend, just a really smart and funny and understanding one.. I never feel judged, and I can always be myself.. I would recommend her million times over.
Absolutely love how Chavon works with me.
I have been communicating in many ways with Betterhelp, specifically Chavon Williams for about 2 weeks now. It’s so nice that if a situation arises, I don’t have to wait for my appointment in 2 weeks to visit. Chavon listens and suggests actions based on Christian principles. She makes me feel comfortable that, regardless of how those actions are received, I’m doing things as well as I can. I highly recommend Chavon and Betterhelp to anyone seeking guidance.
Chavon is so supportive and has been a tremendous help in my life!
Chavon is honestly incredible and has supported me to make life changes in the short time that I have been working with her. Working with her is a real blessing.
She is a compassionate listener and offers applicable advice and insight. Her approach is direct without being invasive and makes you think about the session afterwards to help work through the issue on your own as well.
Chavon is a fantastic therapist and counselor. She approaches challenges with compassion and understanding, while at the same time making sure you hold yourself to a standard you’re capable of. She’s the perfect mix of empathy and inspiration. I couldn’t recommend her more highly!
Support! That's what we need and that is what you get with her. She listens and answer you with an understanding of your point of view. She makes time for you, understanding we all go through our worst times with little regard to time management. Above all she is easy to talk to, before I knew it I was letting my most cringy secrets out.
Chavon is amazing.
