17 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hello, I am Brady Daniel, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Texas. I earned my graduate degree in counseling at Dallas Baptist University. I have been practicing since 2006. Eight of those years were counseling within the pastoral care department within the local church, and five years in private practice. I provide an integrative approach to counseling that is interactive, compassionate, and non-judgmental while assessing and addressing the physical, the spiritual and our thoughts, choices, and emotions. I specialize in men's issues, couples, and families/parenting. I have extensive training in a range of modalities including strength-based coaching, family therapy, and rational emotive counseling. I am an educator to undergraduate Biblical Counseling students and Marriage and Family students who are pursuing their goal of becoming counselors. I enjoy watching movies, spending time at the beach, working out and most of all, spending time with my family. I look forward to hearing from you and to work with you!

Life can throw unexpected challenges our way, especially in our closest relationships. When problems arise, I'm here to help you explore those moments with compassion and understanding. Through a strengths-based systemic approach to therapy, we'll explore all aspects of your life that might be contributing to the issue at hand, and work towards finding practical solutions that resonate with you. I firmly believe that problems don't exist in isolation. That's why I take a holistic approach, considering how various factors in your life might be influencing the challenges you're facing. In our sessions, you'll find a safe, non-judgmental environment where you can freely express yourself and discover your own strengths and resilience. My passion lies in empowering individuals to become the best version of themselves. I see each person as the expert of their own life, and my role is to walk alongside you on your journey toward growth and self-discovery. Together, we'll build a trusting relationship grounded in respect and empathy, and I'll provide you with the tools you need to move forward with confidence. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Colorado State University before relocating to Texas in 2012 to pursue my Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy from Capella University. Over the years, I've gained experience working in both inpatient and outpatient settings, addressing a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, life transitions, and self-esteem. I have always loved northern Colorado and missed living there so in 2023, I moved back to Colorado with my husband. I'm excited to embark on this journey with you and to support you in building meaningful, healthy relationships and finding significance in your unique experiences. If you're ready to take the next step towards positive change, I'm here to help.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Chico. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders. If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in Chico, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Chico region and in the state of Texas. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Chico or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Chico area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Chico therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Chico due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Chico may not take health insurance, some in the state of Texas may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With a BetterHelp therapist throughout the state of Texas you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Chico?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Chico therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Chico therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Chico therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Chico therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in TX, therapists may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 76431 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Chico counselor?

Before seeing your Chico therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Chico.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Chico licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Chico counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Chico, Texas can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Chico has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
