Telecia Rittiman

About Me

Hello, My name is Telecia Rittiman. I have been married for 28 years. My family includes two children and 5 dogs that we rescued. Helping people is a calling for me. I have often said I feel lucky to be paid for something so important to me. Central to all of my sessions is respect, acceptance, and openness. I believe that therapy is a partnership. We will work together to reach your goals. Your ideas and contributions are central to achieving our success. I have experience in many evidence based therapeutic modalities. I believe one of the most effective to be a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing.

I earned my Bachelor'a Degree in Psychology from the University of Texas at San Antonio, where I was published in the Journal of Applied Social Psychology for research in AIDS. I earned my Master's Degree in Social Work in 1997 from the University of Houston. Some of the training I have received has been in Grief and Bereavement Therapy, Stress Management, Anger Management, Mediation, Couples Counseling, Addictions, Setting Goals, End of Life Therapy and working with Adjustment Issues. Some of my work experience includes 12 years in a psychiatric hospital both as a therapist and administrator, State director of Treatment and Recovery for a national non-profit, Employee Assistance Professional for the forth largest city in the US as well as private practice for 20 years.

We all want to be our best self. I would be pleased to help you reach that goal.

I accidentally pressed 9 instead of 10 on her review - Telecia is awesome! Looking forward to continue working with her now that my schedule has opened back up.

Unfortunately, I only had one session but I completely felt heard and am inspired to come back once I get my things in order. I would recommend her to my friends and family without a doubt.

I’ve had only three sessions so far with Telicia and after each session I am filled with not just Hope but practical tools to help with every day living. So grateful that BetterHelp matched us up together. I also really like being able to have my sessions without leaving my home. There is also a built-in flexibility with how to meet and I appreciate that as well. No regrets here for signing up with BetterHelp.
