About Me

Hello,

Thank you for looking into Betterhelp. If you are here, you might be feeling overwhelmed by life's current challenges. Well, you are not alone. Life can throw all of us curve balls from time to time. However, with courage, patience, and the right mindset and tools, I know change is possible and you can reveal your best self going forward. I have a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor from Texas. I have over 23 years of experience as a counselor primarily working with a diverse range of non-traditional college students dealing with stress, anxiety, procrastination, family/relationship issues, and career related concerns. Over the years of working in a college setting, I have come to appreciate the concerns that people have when embarking on something new, challenging, uncertain, and ambiguous. Do I belong here? Am I too old to go back to school? Am I too old to pursue this career? What if I fail? These are only a few of the many questions driven by fear and uncertainty that I hear. Another population of interest is working with early and mid-career professionals struggling with career related issues such as work stress, change, purpose, and leadership issues and work/life balance.

Some of my modalities of therapy include a mixture of cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and motivational interviewing. Together, we will explore multiple visions of of the future and strategies to get there. We will explore your strengths, values, interests and how your behavior supports and aligns with each of these. Moreover, my style of counseling will always put you in the drivers seat in taking ownership and being ready to enact positive change. Finally, as a firm believer in life long learning, my hope for you is that you will come to understand that your current predicament is just another temporary setback and or opportunity for growth and change in your journey toward finding greater purpose, happiness and wellbeing.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Jack Hernandez. 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.

Written by J.E. on Feb 04, 2021 after therapy with Jack for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and anger management

I really like Jack! Him and I are similar in the ways our brains dissect information and it was easy to feel confident in his abilities.

Work with me!
