My name is Bridgjette Evans, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have experience counseling adolescents and adults in a school and in a clinical environment. I also specialize in helping people in their desire to close the gap between their present state of being while at the same time instilling positive and productive visions of where they want to be in the future with supportive individualized therapy sessions. When it comes to professional counseling, I envision and equate it to a professional coach but instead of coaching athletics, I coach professional life skills to clients. Helping them to cope with life stressors and providing tactics to navigate through the social constructs of society. Moreover, like a sports coach who help athletes train their bodies for strength and conditioning for peak performance, as a professional counselor, I visualize myself training individual’s minds for mental excellence and balance. My theoretical orientation is a person-centered approach. However, I combine cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, acceptance commitment therapy when needed. I use an integrated approach when creating a treatment plan to address each person as a whole. Furthermore, I keep in mind the needs of my client’s safeguards, symptoms, and personality, as well as, provide an empathetic, safe, trustworthy environment, which allows us collaboratively to identify and conquer concerns. Lastly, I believe that being a therapist is an incredibly rewarding career. Interacting positively and proactively with people helps in the healing process and problem solving. For me, it is deeply satisfying, and time well spent helping people to lead more productive, functional, and happier lives. I am the author of Pleasant Place of Peace: Journal/ Workbook for Anxiety.

Hello, my name is Celia Gardner. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas and Wisconsin. I have a Masters Degree in Counseling, having graduated from Webster University in 2004. I am also a National Certified Counselor. I've been in the counseling field for 16 years, working in a variety of settings and with different age groups. A specific area of interest for me is working with adolescents and women, although I also have experience working with men and couples struggling to salvage their marriage. I have training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma Informed Care and Adoption Competency. Additional areas of expertise include anger management and treatment for men (and women) who use violence in interpersonal relationships. I recognize one of the most difficult things for someone going through depression, anxiety or history of trauma is to make that first move for help. Once that first step is taken, the next steps come a little bit easier. I believe 80% of an individual's success in therapy is based on their relationship with the counselor. In my experience, I have been able to gain clients' trust and comfort level to enable a positive relationship and the ability to delve into their life's challenges. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have to help make a decision on a counselor.

I have a Ph.D. in Counseling Education and Supervision, a Master of Science degree in Mental Health Counseling, and a post-baccalaureate certification in psychology specializing in play therapy.

As a counseling professional of eleven years, I have the most experience working with children, adolescents, college students, families, couples, groups, individuals, and those in crisis. My theoretical orientations are multiple, including humanistic-existential and solution-focused brief therapy. I use these approaches to look at the whole person while helping clients remain true to themselves (humanistic), increase self-awareness and responsibility, and live more authentic lives (existential) while focusing on finding solutions for issues in the here and now (solution-focused). Regardless of my most often used theoretical approaches, when appropriate, I integrate spirituality and methods that match the needs of each unique client. I enjoy volunteering, reading, singing, working out, and traveling in my free time.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Marble Falls 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 Marble Falls 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 Marble Falls 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 Marble Falls, 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 Marble Falls 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.

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

You can also try a Marble Falls 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 Marble Falls 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. 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.

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 Marble Falls 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 Marble Falls 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 Marble Falls, 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.

Marble Falls 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.
