About me

My name is Fred Wahlig. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in San Diego, California with 30 years of experience as a Social Worker and Therapist. I graduated with my Masters in Social Work from San Diego state University in 1991.

Prior to obtaining my MSW I worked on a Crisis Line and in a Homeless Youth Shelter. As a Social Worker and Therapist, I have had the opportunity to work with People of , Children and Teens who had experienced physical asexual abuse, Active Duty Naval Personal, Transgender youth in crisis and Adolescent and Teens who were actively suicidal. I'm a Mental Health Specialist with the National Disaster Medical System. As a member of NDMS, I'm periodically activated to provide crisis counseling to First Responders. I feel it takes a great deal of courage to seek help when mental health issues may be impacting your life. I'm an open, caring individual and believe everyone deserves to live a life they desire.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Frederick Wahlig. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Better Help matched me with Fred based on the answers on the intake form. The algorithm works very well, I suspect better than a choice I would've made. He is a careful listener and prompts questions that are significant to not only advancing thoughtful dialogue but at a pace that allows for thorough consideration. I'm delighted with my experience with Better Help and Fred.

As someone who suffers from c-ptsd, I am very pleased how well I can open up and not have many of the stress triggers come to light that I get when talking to others. Dr. Fred is wonderful at keeping my mind at ease.
