About Me

"There's not one person on Earth who is here for the same reason as you." (A Note From the Universe) Let's work together to find and celebrate your potential!

I am a licensed Counselor and Counselor Supervisor in the states of Texas and Georgia with over 15 years of counseling and coaching experience . Additionally, I am certified as a National Board Certified counselor and a Board Certified Tele-Mental Health Provider. I have experience working with diverse individuals with a wide range of concerns including:

Goal setting and positive motivation,
Work/Life balance,
Depression, stress, and anxiety,
Disability and aging,
Career and academic transitions,
Self-esteem and confidence
Health Anxiety

My counseling style is nonjudgmental and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I favor a relationship where we both contribute. I am solution oriented, and operate from a coaching model, which requires your direction, discovery, and input for best results. I like to think of our work together as a partnership that is focused on positive outcomes based on your individual needs.

I feel that it is important to get to know you better. Often I will ask questions or utilize links to web sites, videos, handouts, or worksheets to complete. The more input I get from you, the more I can understand your situations and your concerns.
I will also help you develop goals, usually during the 2nd week, and you will determine your progress towards meeting these goals. They can be mental health goals, career goals, or personal goals. This is your process, and I will support you and your choices in making goals and working towards meeting them through directed and specific tools and techniques.

You are currently preparing to take the first step toward better outcomes, and I am here to provide tools to support and empower you to make positive change.
I look forward to working with you!

"Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space lies our freedom and power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom."

Written by T.A. on Oct 27, 2018 after counseling with Mary for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, and career difficulties

I came to BetterHelp because I didn't know what to do on my own, but I was also skeptical of how talking to someone would help me. Within just a few conversations, Mary Selby helped me take control of my anxiety and negativity. I have made many positive changes in my life that I would not have imagined just a few months ago.
