I was raised on a family farm with seven siblings. My farm family beginnings have created in me the knowledge that we all have purpose and we all search for meaning in our lives. My eyes have always been open to the beauty of nature and the harshness of survival. My years as a mother of six children have proven to me that strength can be found in each human being. Each child is unique in talent and ability. Every person must be nurtured and guided along the way. Hazards and obstacles are present, buts so is faith, attitude, and endurance. I have owned and operated a business. In this, we have enjoyed long term success and discouraging failure, complete with disloyalty and theft. I have been fortunate to have been raised in Christianity. I do know that throughout my life I have not walked alone. Because of the business loss, my life has found its true calling. The richness of the counseling relationship has opened my eyes to the joy of helping others realize their self-worth. It is my hope to facilitate the change in my client that serves to make his/her life more joyful and purposeful.

My name is Kathryn Conly. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with close to thirty years experience. I have worked in a wide range of settings (private practice, inpatient, outpatient intensive care, and schools) with a large variation of individuals and their families. I work with clients suffering from depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, mood disorders, psychosis, and with relationship concerns. I do marriage counseling as well as family and child related conflicts. I have a non-judgmental approach with huge amounts of compassion and understanding for the discomforts and suffering of my clients. I am readily available and will commit to seeing you realize your goals in therapy. I utilize a range of therapeutic modalities including cognitive behavioral, solution focused, and relationship strategies. It is most important to identify what you want to get out of therapy and decide what approaches work best for you. I n working with my clients, I draw wisdom from a perennial philosophy (philosophy which has survived over time and cultures), spiritual practices, and mindfulness techniques. I believe that all human suffering and pscyho-emotional problems are NOT a necessary factor of our human existence. I believe we can learn to be fearless and unstoppable in our dreams in life, we just not identify where we are being "stopped" in our life aspirations. I look forward to getting to know you and hopefully becoming your "life coach" in problem solving, confronting troublesome issues, and obtaining your life goals. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and I wish for you the best in your life journey.

Hello! My name is Kathleen (Kathie), and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with experience in private practice as well as 15 years of experience as a school counselor in Texas high school and junior high. I have dedicated my counseling practice to help youth and parents in their relationship challenges, anxiety, depression, adjustment to change, as a well as academics and career concerns. Much of my experience focuses also on the acute needs of those in crisis. Although I was born and raised in Texas, I have had many life experiences that have given me the opportunity to learn and appreciate people in very different situations and cultures. After graduating high school in Texas, I spent a year in the Netherlands (Holland) as a Foreign Exchange Student where I learned a new language and assimilated into the Dutch culture. I then returned to the United States and graduated from Southwest Texas State University, now Texas State University. After seven years of teaching in several culturally diverse areas of Texas, such as South Texas, San Antonio, Dallas, and Houston area school districts, my interest in collaboratively helping people work through their emotional and mental health issues to improve their relationships and quality of life became an important life goal. As a result, I earned my Masters degree in Education with a major in Counseling at Tarleton State University in 2008. Since clients are the experts on their lives, my direction for therapy is client centered. Clients determine the direction and depth of therapy while I determine what treatment modalities would work best for the client to accomplish their treatment goals. I have studied Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) that will help us as a team examine the overestimation of risk and the underestimation of the ability to cope when dealing with anxiety and depression. I understand and have experience with counseling youth concerning relationships, anxiety, depression, academics, and careers, as well as helping parents evaluate their own life experiences and guide them to explore the help they may need for their own lives. Outside of my work as a therapist and school counselor, I like to practice yoga, sew, and support my kids in their endeavors. I also enjoy reading, hiking, and traveling to new places. My work hours vary. Generally, Live Session are availalbe Monday- Friday after 4:00. I also work some weekends, offering Saturday morning and Sunday evening appointments.

How to find counseling in Milano

Finding the best therapist close by in Milano can feel challenging, but know that once you narrow your search for a counselor serving your area, you can find a therapist in your city that is accepting new clients and fits your goals. Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, marriage, family issues, or other emotional challenges, feel proud that you have begun your search to find the mental health care services that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Milano. 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 Milano, 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. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Milano or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns. They may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

There are all kinds of therapists working with clients today across the United States and in the greater Milano area in different types of therapy, including:

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

When you're ready to start your search and find therapists, have in mind what type of therapy you'd like your provider to be most experienced with and choose an experienced provider with a practice located near you in the city of Milano, elsewhere in Milam, or in the greater state of Texas.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. 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 Milano 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 Milano 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. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 76556 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 Milano 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 Milano 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 Milano, 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.

Milano 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.
