Greetings. I want to congratulate you on taking the first step towards recovery. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Texas. I am also a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC), with certifications in Mental Health Teletherapy (CTMH), and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP). Every journey needs a guide. On your journey to recovery, I walk with you to help guide you to a better understanding of where you have been and where you want to go. I believe in the therapeutic relationship and the power of that relationship can help affect change. While I approach counseling from a wide array of approaches, such as humanistic, psychodynamic, and cognitive-behavioral, my approach is tailored to what you need and what will serve you the best. I believe that effective change and effective therapy takes time. It takes a willingness to explore the past, consider the present, and change the future for the better. You have taken the first step on that path to a better future and I commend you on that bold action. I am ready to work with you and walk the path with you. I wish you a happy and healthy recovery.

Searching for the right counselor? Don't settle for just help...get BetterHelp! I am excited to explore with you how to reach your goals and start on the path to leading the life that you desire. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Texas and graduated from Texas State University with a Master of Arts in Community Counseling and a focus in individual counseling and marriage & family therapy. When I first meet with a someone new, I approach the session from a person-centered modality of therapy, listening, getting to know the person, and building a safe and trusting environment where they can be all of who they are without judgment. From this place, I assist in determining what they want out of life and how we can work together to help them overcome their current problems and achieve their goals and outcomes. At this point I may employ a variety of therapeutic techniques including neuro-linguistic, cognitive-behavioral, gestalt and family systems techniques, among others. My overall approach is integrative and follows the lead of the client based on their goals, outcomes, and comfort. I have worked in the field of counseling since 1994. I began my career working with severe and persistently mentally ill individuals who had been in and out of the Texas State Mental Hospital system. I had the pleasure of working with clients and their families in order to allow the individuals to live out in the community and no longer reside in the hospital system. After successfully working with over sixty individuals and families, I decided to pursue my lifetime goal of working with those who have experienced abuse/neglect. I began focusing my career towards working with individuals who have experienced physical, sexual, and/or family violence. I have counseled individuals with severe depression, anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, chronic pain, phobias, breaking bad habits, family system issues, suicidal ideation/self-harm, marital issues, lgbtq issues, and general relationship issues as well as substance abuse, sexual addictions, and eating disorders. I have provided both crisis counseling as well as on-going counseling for multiple issues. It is my overall goal for every person I counsel to feel understood while experiencing progress, success, and fulfillment. Since we set well-defined outcomes together, clients usually report that they have reached their goals and followed a road map to get to their outcomes during the counseling process. I look forward to meeting you and walking down the path to a better life with you!

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Crawford 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 Crawford 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 Crawford 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 Crawford, 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. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Crawford above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets.

You can also try a Crawford 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 Crawford 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 lot of people in TX, providers may be booked out with clients.

No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Crawford 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 Crawford 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 Crawford, 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.

Crawford 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.
