Welcome to counseling, my name is Claudia. I've been a counselor since 2014 and feel honored to work with anyone seeking additional help to get their life back. Sometimes, your life doesn't feel right and things aren't going your way. We can work on that. Whether you are going through a difficult time adjusting to unforeseen things or you haven't felt quite yourself for a while. There are many reasons that people seek counseling and I believe that everyone is different, needing individualized therapeutic treatment. I also work with couples, married, engaged or dating to work through issues like arguing, infidelity, communication or just haven't shared a passionate kiss in a while. I believe that couples can reignite their initial passion with counseling. I've had additional training and experience with people experiencing substance abuse. Whether it is a new problem or a life long struggle, you deserve help and have seen treatment do wonders. As far as the ages that I work with, I work with adults over 18 years old. In the first sessions, we will learn if we are a therapeutic fit. That meaning, do we communicate well enough for you to do counseling... I use worksheets and other materials as part of our sessions, some people like it, others don't like doing the work. It will always be to help you with the counseling journey. :-) Before becoming a counselor, I was in the business world, therefore understand big career transitions. Along with that, how important social support is. I know that counseling can seem to be a big step and will help make it as easy as possible. I will be honored to work with you via voice or video sessions. Currently, my availability is flexible and on weekends.

As we face many life choices on a daily basis, it can get quite overwhelming as we try to juggle our personal lives, family, friends, children, work, and unexpected events all at once. We tend to concentrate on helping others and avoid taking care of ourselves. If we have experienced past trauma in our lives, it compounds our life to where it feels like we are drowning. It’s time to heal, gain strength, and work out your barriers to improving your behavior, and I am available to assist on your journey. I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 16 years of experience in the mental health field. I have assisted individuals with issues that include depression, anxiety, anger management, pain management, young adult issues, PTSD, immigration counseling, divorce, substance abuse, living with HIV, and healthy relationships. My focus is working with young adults as they deal with life changing decisions and the stressors of expectations, the unknown future, and the anxiety of transitioning into adulthood. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and a Master of Arts degree in Mental Health from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA).

Hi. I’m Peggy. I am an LPC in the Great State of Texas and have extensive experience working in the mental health field. I am a United States Navy veteran and a retired federal civilian employee. These life experiences have helped to shape who I am – a straight forward, authentic person. I’m task oriented in that I believe if you voluntarily reached out for a counselor, there’s probably a reason. So let’s get to work. On the other hand, I also believe that sometimes life events can seem overwhelming in the moment and you just need someone to talk to, not to fix anything, just someone to listen. I’m that person as well. I wish I could press a button to fix whatever is going on in your life, but we all know that’s not possible. This journey is yours to take, but you don't have to go alone. As a member of your team. I promise I’ll walk beside you, encourage you, and be your biggest ally. Although it may not always seem like it, just remember – you’ve got this!

Born in 1975, I pride myself as being raised in what I believe as the best generation in modern history. Gen-Xers are a breed of their own. We are known for resilience, independence and forward thinking. Generation X: 1965 to 1980, we are now between the ages of 42 to 57 and bring with us some common stereotypes, like: being the "latch-key kids", or "the MTV generation. Recently Gen Z has dubbed us the "Karen Generation". Whatever that means.... A little about me.... I grew up in a typical middle class American household, which served its purpose for the need for therapy in my life. It helped. My 20's and 30's were brutal, but my 40's have proven to me that there are better ways to deal with life. ​I consider myself a down to earth, open minded, Christian-conservative woman. I have experienced: love, divorce, infertility, childbirth, aging / dying parents and lots of other life events that have molded me to who I am now. I hold a Masters degree in Education Administration and a Masters in Education Counseling Development. I live in Texas with my husband, Jay and our adorable Morkie, Aubrey. We have 3 adult children who have spread their wings. We can't wait to start the next phase of our life! I am licensed in Texas with 5 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, parenting issues, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, & depression. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!

I know first-hand that seeking mental health support can be intimidating, discouraging and/or awkward, but it doesn’t have to be. My focus is to create a supportive, safe and client-centered environment in order to allow individuals to be the most genuine and authentic versions of themselves. Together, we'll collaborate to navigate stress and work towards your desired transformation. I received my graduate degree from the University of Southern Indiana in 2015 and went on to complete my clinical training in Atlanta, Georgia. I have been independently-licensed since August, 2020. Currently, I reside in San Antonio, Texas, and I hold licenses in Georgia, Texas and Indiana. Regarding my theoretical orientation, I primarily provide Solution Focused Therapy and Person-Centered Therapy. Yes, I'm very familiar with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (most clinicians are). I may incorporate some elements of CBT; however, by and large, this is not what I do. My approach is non-directive, meaning I likely will not give you a list of tasks to complete in order to feel better (this would be difficult, because I cannot replicate your biology or experiences). Instead, I will be an excellent listener in order to help you process events, thoughts, emotions and behaviors, ask pointed questions in an effort to uncover different thinking patterns, highlight potential barriers to change, help you identify strengths and resources and collaborate with you to work towards your most desired outcome. I operate from the perspective that you are the expert of your own life, and my role is to assist you. Establishing good rapport is critical to the therapeutic process, and I pride myself on being non-judgmental and down-to-earth. Additionally, I fully embrace differences and uniqueness, and I strive to provide culturally-competent care. Keep in mind there are countless "styles" as it relates to therapy. If, for whatever reason, I do not meet your needs or expectations, please know you may change therapists at any time with absolutely no repercussions. I’m eager to learn more about you. Feel free to message me for additional consultation. **Please note that I do not provide emergency mental health services. If you need to speak with a professional immediately, please contact Emergency Medical Services (EMS) at 911 or the National Crisis Hotline at 988.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Manor 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 Manor 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 Manor 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 Manor, 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 Manor 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'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Manor helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Manor therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Manor 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 Manor 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.

If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 78653 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. 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 Manor 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 Manor 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 Manor, 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.

Manor 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.
