Making the decision to seek counseling is a courageous step towards the opportunity for wholeness. Oftentimes, it is helpful to be reminded that emotional peace and happiness are possible. As a licensed clinical social worker, I strive to create a safe and accepting environment where individuals can fully explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in a meaningful way. Your interest in therapy suggests that you are ready to start the journey to achieving and sustaining emotional wellness. The purpose of therapy through Better Help is to embark on a path that will help you find balance within yourself and with the interpersonal relationships that you value. One of the most important aspects of the counseling process is building a collaborative relationship to help you meet your needs. It is my mission to do just that.
Although therapy can be challenging, it can also yield rewards for those who are willing to be consistent, vulnerable, and engaged. If you are open to the therapeutic process, I look forward to partnering with you to create a self-care plan that is tailored to address your specific needs and goals. In our work together, we will find ways for you to become your most authentic self and in the process rediscover peace of mind, self-truth, and happiness.

Mackaria Estes is the TRUTH!!!!! In my time working with her, i've learned how to manage my realistic expectations, that i'm going to be completely honest - changed and saved my life. I show up ready to work, ready to be better - for me and she is the wonderful reminder that not only am i trying but helps guide me (not by her personal suggestions or advice) to implement things i've already been working on and towards. I'm soooooo lucky to have her as my therapist. If she goes, i follow - hands down.

I absolutely love my interaction with Mackaria, she listens and is relate-able and realistic. I don’t feel judged or like I have to hold back from expressing myself. She gives realistic goals, and challenges me to do and be better each session.
