I understand what it feels like to experience anxiety, sadness, grief/loss, work stress, negative rumination, and role- overload. I have benefited greatly from counseling myself. It takes courage to pursue change; disrupt negative cycles; learn to respond and stop reacting; learn to communicate effectively; heal from trauma; heal from abuse; disrupt co-dependency patterns and dysfunctional relationship dynamics; just to name a few of life's tumultuous experiences. First, I applaud you for taking this courageous step to wholeness, you are seeking change and self-discovery. Hope is the "antidote." If you are looking for a safe space to begin a journey of discovery, change, growth, or healing, you have come to the right place. I pride myself on being empathetic and an active listener. I hold a doctorate, bachelor's, and master's degree. I have over twenty years of clinical counseling. Although I am certified in CBT cognitive behavior therapy, I pride myself on being eclectic, because I know that each client is unique. I also enjoy using a holistic approach to wellness. I am here to support and empower you in your journey and pursuit of change. I have extensive experience helping clients struggling with: depression; anxiety; OCD; Bipolar; stress; excessive worrying- negative rumination; relaxation difficulties; role overload; and communication difficulties (e.g. active listening skills, seeking clarity, getting an understanding; addressing mental filtering; and mind reading); and improving interactions with others.

“Counseling is like a journey, it’s your journey, I am only a guide, still I am willing to take this journey with you and walk beside you while providing the support you need”. On this journey if we discover you have a broken heart, we can find and pick up the pieces so you can be free to love, receive love and trust again. Maybe you've been hurt so bad and feel numb, let’s go searching for that person who once cared, and you can take what you can carry, and we’ll leave the rest behind Hello, my name is Daniel Carney, and I am Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas and over the past 25 years I have lead many on a journey of discovering the obstacle/s which are preventing them from living the life they choose to live, plus finding a path which leads to awareness of a true life purpose, and helping each to instill the courage and self-confidence to live the life they choose to live, a life of meaning. My experience with counseling has led to the belief that not only are all unique, but also how each interprets their life experiences. Thus, my approach to counseling is not restricted to a one-size-fits-all perceptive that’s why I have learned to utilize an integrated approach to counseling. This elective approach allows me to draw from a variety of contemporary evidence-based theories/techniques that are proven most effective in addressing each individual concern, while taking into consideration each person’s unique personality characteristics and experiences. Through the means of acceptance, respect, listening, and understanding, I strive in providing a safe and supportive interactive environment; a place where individuals feel safe and free to explore their inner and external worlds. I have experience in helping clients with: Anxiety/Stress Issues, Depressive/Mood Symptoms, Relationship Issues, Trauma, Vocational/Career, Personality Disorders, Bereavement/Grief/Loss, and Spirituality/Religious Issues and work with Couples and ages 12 and beyond. So are you ready to take your journey

Welcome, and thank you for viewing my profile! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in both California and Nevada with 13 years of experience helping people overcome the effects of trauma, overcome anxiety and chronic stress, and how to assimilate the challenges brought on by grief and life transitions. I hold a Master of Arts in Psychology (2011) from Brandman University, and Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice with a Minor in Music from California State University, Sacramento (2004). The majority of my clinical experience has been working with trauma survivors, including survivors of violent crime, domestic violence and child abuse. I have worked as a therapist in private practice, government agencies, and community non-profit clinics. I have also worked in the social service fields as an Employment Services Social Worker, a Child Protective Services Social Worker, and a Foster Family Agency Social Worker. All of these experiences have shaped my approach to working with individuals of diverse life circumstances, and those experiences have given me a profound respect for the challenges that humans face on a daily basis while also providing inspiration as to the resilience of the human spirit. When working with my clients, I use imagery, metaphor, and humor to help them understand and internalize concepts that help them regain control over their lives. Clients often say they appreciate my ability to be "real" with them while also being sensitive, empathetic, and professional. I feel it is important to create a safe space for my clients to openly and honestly share their experiences, no matter the topic, and I encourage any and all questions you might have. I also understand that my clients are relying on me for equally open and honest feedback, and I provide that in a gentle yet meaningful and actionable way. I also believe it is essential that my clients have a clear understanding of how our process works, and to that end and as much as humanly possible, I make sure they always know what to expect from our professional relationship. I very much enjoy working with highly-motivated individuals looking to take charge of their future while healing their past. Let's make a plan about how we can get you from where you are to where you want to be! I look forward to meeting you soon! Warmly, Jen

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Copperas Cove 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 Copperas Cove 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 Copperas Cove 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 BetterHelp or clinicians 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).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Copperas Cove, Texas working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more.

You can also try a Copperas Cove therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a 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.

A psychologist 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 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 Copperas Cove therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support.

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

Before seeing your 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. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist 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. A Copperas Cove 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 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.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy 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 professional 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 Copperas Cove, 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.

Copperas Cove 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?

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.
