Dr. Dora Whiteside

LPC

About me

I absolutely love what I do and I view each day as an opportunity to increase in love, peace, joy, and believing that all other increase (i.e. spiritual and material things) will naturally follow. Not only do I work to increase myself, but I also absolutely love helping others to increase in these areas. I primarily use Cognitive Behavior
Therapy, with a mix of Solution based Therapy, and Person Center Therapy, and many different skills and interventions. I have worked in various settings; with clients from many different cultural/ethnic groups; and with various presenting problems. These presenting problems include major depression, anxiety; bipolar disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Psychosis, suicidal crisis and multiple suicide attempts; and well as feelings of self harm and harm to others; and other many other problems.

When working with clients I like to begin to build the client and therapist relationship/rapport right away, and use this to create individualized treatment for each client. Whenever you make the decision to think about change in your life and/or are ready to begin change, I want to be here for you every step of the way. I pray each day "Lord let today be an adventure and not just a chore". I have been to the deepest depth of depression, death fear, hopelessness, worthlessness to highest out of control points of mania with very risky and reckless behavior and then back to living each day as the "best me". I desire to help guild you through the rough and tough times in life and all the way to truly living "your very best you and your very best life". Whenever you are ready really live your life, and not simply exist, I will be here waiting for you.

Written on Feb 07, 2021 after therapy with Dora for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, and grief

Dr. Whiteside is just what I needed. I never thought I need a therapist, but talking with someone who listens with expertise in many areas, absolutely made me realize everyone needs someone who hears, advise, and help them on their journey to whatever it is they need. So far Dr. Whiteside has shown me that and I thank her and BetterHelp...
