(MA, LMHC)

About Me

I help professionals, learn coping skills, and practical strategies to experience emotional wellness, healthy relationships and work life balance. I speak on work related issues such as anger management, stress management, mental wellness, relationships, work & life balance.

Counseling ALL online for your convenience, so you can work with me from anywhere by phone, message, live chat, or video.

Anxiety and depression can derail your dreams and goals if it is not managed. Abusive and dysfunctional situations, at home or at work can cause a rapid decrease, in your daily functioning. I help professionals improve and manage emotional wellness, when they are experiencing difficulties in life, career, relationships, finances, new beginnings and endings.

I focus on your unique qualities, strengths and abilities. I use CBT, Brief Solution Focused Therapy and Faith-Based counseling. I also utilize Journal Writing Therapy. Writing is an effective form of expressive arts therapy that enhances treatment,by bridging the left and right brain,which are logical and creative.

I have mental health counseling experience in treating individuals with:

* mood disorders
* depression
* anxiety disorders (gad, panic attacks)
* insomnia
* anger management
* relationships (couples, family)
* career counseling (unemployment, underemployment, career change, workplace issues)

Bachelors Degree: Psychology
Masters Degree: Mental Health Counseling
Certified Professional Life Coach
Certified Journal Writing Facilitator

My specialties are vocational counseling, careers, relationships, spiritual, cognitive behavioral treatment, short-term solution-focused techniques, motivational interviewing, family.

Who am I?
I am Seneca Williams, MA (Masters in Mental Health Counseling) I specialize in career development, life balance, relationships, parenting. My clinical orientation is cognitive behavioral therapy, because it is evidence based and my clients have gotten excellent results.

How am I different than other counselors?
I empower young professionals to make sense of it all, by accessing their inner voice, develop insight, build their strengths. We work collaboratively to choose your best course of treatment, because in order for this to work, you have to believe it will work for you! No two clients with anxiety should ever have an identical treatment plan. You are unique, so your treatment should be.

I encourage journal writing, ASK ME MORE ABOUT IT!
Journal writing is an evidence based, self-help method I have used with psychotherapy clients, to improve their sense of well-being and experience improvement, in as little as 12 sessions.* I guarantee you are worth this investment. Change is not always easy, without struggle you cannot progress, but together with my support you can do it! Don’t ever give up on yourself, you’ll thank yourself later.

"My husband and I went to consult with Ms Williams regarding family issues. We needed guidance with how to plan for ourselves as we navigated various issues within our family. Ms Williams was professional and listened carefully to what we were saying and then clearly set up goals that we could work for after each session. Ms Williams is caring and kind and listens to your problems. She makes observations and suggestions that can guide you to a greater understanding of what needs to be done to accomplish your goals. We were so thankful for her help and guidance." Client M

Seneca is really good about getting back to you. By using the messaging feature in conjunction with live chats, I feel like I have gotten the most out of my experience with my counselor. Seneca is down to earth, hears your concerns, and helps you come up with an action plan to help get you unstuck.

I just started working with Seneca so far things are great. I really like her insight on how things work.

Written by J.E. on May 23, 2018 after counseling with Seneca for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, grief, and self esteem

Seneca has helped me in so many ways. When I lost my mother she taught me how to deal with my grief. When my anxiety got the best of me she talked me down and helped me find my inner peace. When my depression was so over whelming and all I did was sleep and I hide myself from the world she taught me wake up and embrace the world and those around me and that there was plenty of life to live. She motivated me to change, to live my life, and take things day by day. We can't change the past but we can embrace our future.

Seneca is always there when I need her. The support she provides during rough times is always solid and just what I need. She always checks in regularly to make sure everything is going ok. The difference she has made in my life is indescribable.

Written by M.A. on Apr 11, 2018 after counseling with Seneca for 8 months

1. How did you feel when you started?
I had just moved back "home" after living out of state for a couple of years (due to work). I found that I had changed in many ways and I couldn't find my way around my old circle of friends nor could I feel comfortable around my close relatives and environment. Transitioning back into an environment I had been in for over a decade was very hard. Isolation, desperation, hurt, pain, rejection, judgement. These were all feelings I was battling after I came back. On top, work was busy, commuting was hard, adjusting to the weather was a pain. It was all too much!
2. How did I help you?
After a second match with Better Help, I got to work with Seneca. Her calm demeanor was the first thing that got me off the ledge, so to speak. Seneca helped me work on my issues one at the time, and helped me work through trigger situations, dealing with the root problems, and unloading repressed feelings and old baggage. Seneca always checked on me when I'd get quiet, and she made me realized how important self care is for a healthier state of mind.
3. How do you feel now?
I'm fostering the "chill" and my inner happy self, so I'm all good! I am feeling lighter, and have an overall contentment about life. These are innate feelings that get lost in the shuffle when certain issues come up. But I have support and tools Seneca provided to navigate these issues. I'm enjoying living, as cheesy as it sounds.

You are the best Seneca!

Written by V.E. on Mar 16, 2018 after counseling with Seneca for 2 years and 1 month on issues concerning family, and trauma and abuse

She always understands.

Written by T.A. on Dec 21, 2017 after counseling with Seneca for 4 months

I really enjoyed working with her. When I first started using BetterHelp, I was assigned a counselor that didn't seem to be addressing the right points for me and was reassigned to Seneca. She took time to listen and address my concerns. I was at a job I didnt like, was not respected, working long hours, struggling to figure out what I wanted to do in my career and she helped me to cope with the stress. During our time together, I changed jobs into a company that better fits my priorities. The start at the new company was a bit rocky as I wasnt sure I made the right decision, but she helped me build confidence and see things in a different light. I'm much happier in a place I am now and am able to see and set clear direction and goals for myself. I'm currently quitting counseling because I'd like to save some money, but as soon as I feel it's necessary, I will be returning to Seneca Williams. Thanks!

Seneca is absolutely amazing. She has helped me change the course of my life for the better. I have more tools and strategies to live my best life. I don't know that I would have that without her. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a highly-qualified and competent therapist.

Seneca is a wonderful counselor!

Written by P.A on May 16, 2017 after counseling with Seneca for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety

Seneca has a brilliantly approachable way of discussing and reflecting on your thoughts and feelings.

She calmly explains what your feelings are going through, without coming across as judgmental or patronising.

Amazingly, despite the significance of her role in reshaping my life, she had a great sense of humour, and I genuinely felt like I enjoyed my discussions with her.

Written by A.L on May 05, 2017 after counseling with Seneca for 4 days on issues concerning relationship, family, self esteem, and career

I just started working with Seneca. I had my first phone conversation with
her today. I felt worried before the session if we will be a good match. I
feel appreciative because she spent 1.5 hours with me instead of 1 hour
trying to understand my situation and giving me helpful pointers. I felt
great afterwards and feel that she understood me!

Written by K.I on Apr 17, 2017 after counseling with Seneca for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and intimacy-related

I started BetterHelp unsure of what to expect, but I couldn't be more happy
with my experience. Before I started working with Seneca I felt painfully
lost, unsure of myself, and completely voiceless. Seneca helped me work
through my anxiety and crippling self-doubt. She provided techniques to
combat my anxiety, listened when I needed someone to, provided honest
feedback and insight that spoke to my specific situations, and overall was
a huge support system. Now, I have a new sense of control over my life and
my happiness that I never even knew existed. Life's experience can be
difficult, but Seneca helped me find and exert my own power in the midst of
all of it.

It would be nice if she could respond more quickly. I often find I have to wait days to hear from her. But she's good and helpful when she does respond

Written by M.I on Mar 01, 2017 after counseling with Seneca for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, intimacy-related, and anger

I really like her. She listens and can relate to me. I'm looking forward to continued progress with her.

Written by C.A on Dec 07, 2016 after counseling with Seneca for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, self esteem, and anger

I began counseling with Seneca a few weeks ago. I can honestly say that this has been one of the best investments in my well-being that I have ever made! Seneca is a very compassionate and intuitive counselor. She is very intelligent. Not only does she give me information that is pertinent to my situation, she also sends me the tools I can apply to it. In addition, she sends me informational material on topics of my interests so I can do my own research. For me that is very valuable.
I'm completely satisfied with this service. I'm grateful that somebody finally thought of this as a way to make counseling attainable and affordable!

Written by F.A on Sep 09, 2016 after counseling with Seneca for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, sleeping, self esteem, and bipolar

Seneca has been fantastic. She's really helped me refocus my energies back into the positive and helped me see that I'm not what others have put me down for. Empowered is the word that best expresses how I feel right now.
She's made sure I stayed focused, redirected me and kept me changing my perspectives of myself.
I would highly recommend her to any abused female or teenager.

I have found that Seneca is very beneficial for me to begin to understand my thoughts and subsequent behaviors.

I would highly recommend her to others.

Written by M.I on Apr 08, 2016 after counseling with Seneca for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, intimacy-related, self esteem, and depression

Seneca is absolutely wonderful. She came into my life when I truly needed guidance and was ready to receive it. I have been working with her since November and I can definitely say that I have seen a change with her support and guidance. The important thing is patience. You won't be better over night but if you keep working on it, you will learn how to manage the ups and downs of life. Seneca helped me to realize this and I am truly grateful for her.

I cannot rave enough about my BetterHelp.com therapist Seneca Williams! From my first correspondence to my most recent, she has shown a true interest in my concerns, always responds back in a timely manner, and leaves me feeling like each conversation gives excellent insight to any personal dilemma I may have. Seneca advises with a genuine compassion and makes each subject we cover of importance, all while marinating her professionalism. She respects and addresses my concerns with gentle suggestions and observations which I find very helpful.
