Hi! I am Catherine Flores, a Clinical Social Worker licensed in Texas with over 17 years of professional experience. I received my Master of Social Work degree from Loyola University Chicago in 2001, and over the years have worked with clients who struggle with medical issues, addiction, depression, anxiety, relationship problems, personality disorders and trauma. My counseling style is warm and empathic. I strive to offer my clients a non-judgmental, supportive space where they can gain insight and make changes. I have seen so many people struggle with problems and recover, even GROW from the adversity they have faced, and it is my privilege to be able to walk along side somebody in their life journey. I am trained and experienced in using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy techniques. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs, because after all we're just two humans trying to make it through this thing called life! I believe everyone is doing their best, and sometimes we just need a helping hand to get through tough times and to our next level. When I am not at work I am spending time with my twin 11 year old sons, my two Dachshund dogs, and my husband in the Houston area! So, if you are looking for a down-to-earth therapist who won't judge you and will help you achieve your own personal goals, you've found her! I look forward to working with you!

5 years of experience

I am Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in the state of Florida. My goal is to help clients go from feeling overwhelmed and powerless to feeling peace and confidence in their ability to manage day-to-day challenges. I have experience in helping clients with depression, grief, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, & family conflicts. In treatment, I use an integrative approach to therapy that caters specifically to the unique needs of each client. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Throughout their time with me, clients have reported being able to: 1) overcome worry, anxiety, and stress, 2) reduce self-criticism and negative thoughts, 3) navigate family conflict, 4) increase self-compassion, -love, and -confidence, and 5) achieve healing from a history of hurt and pain. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey. “There is the life that I live and the life that I want, and I am taking action to bring them into alignment.” ~ Author: You

I am licensed as a licensed clinical social worker in Tx having about 7 years of client-facing experience. I have experience in helping clients regarding stress, anxiety, depression, sleep issues, and trauma. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I strive to offer responsive, humanistic interventions that meet your unique and specific needs. Making the first step to participate in therapy can require courage, and I welcome you and congratulate you for getting started! You may be interested to know a little bit more about me. I attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill as an undergraduate, earning a B.A. in English literature and Latin American Studies. Later, I earned my Master of Social Work degree from New York University in 2013. I have trained in solutions-focused psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, "DBT," acceptance and commitment therapy, and cognitive processing therapy, among other theories. A few of these therapies, such as DBT, involve the application of mindfulness. I meet clients where they are to help my clients identify and move toward meeting their own goals. BetterHelp allows therapists to organize some of their own practices and procedures according to their training and licensure. So, you may like to know upfront that I will prefer to have our first meeting via Video, both so that we can better meet each other and also so that you can show me a copy of your ID, such as a driver's license, as a standard professional practice and for better safety planning. After the first session, I allow my clients to choose Video, Phone, or Chat sessions. I also have a formal, professional consent to receive services form that I request before the first session and require before the second session. These practices lay the foundation for the more important therapy conversations that we will develop and make together. Anyone wishing to file a complaint about my services may do so as follows if desired: Texas Behavioral Health Executive Council Attn: Enforcement Division 1801 Congress Ave., Ste. 7.300 Austin, Texas 78701 Investigations/Complaints 24-hour, toll-free line (800) 821-3205 The Council is open Monday – Friday, 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., but closed during state holidays.

Everyday is a fresh start! I most certainly believe that...Seasons Change and so do You! It is inevitable to journey through life without the help of someone else. That’s just what therapy is for me; to join you on a journey and help clients see the other side to things. Having clients join me on a mindfully attuned self-awareness journey, will help one begin to explore what works for them; seeing the Seasons change for themselves. Lifestyle therapy is important as it it offers each person a framework for a way to live despite what obstacles and trauma faced. Often times when grief and toxic relationships overtake, break, and burden our hearts; being a caregiver stretches us, depression and anxiety infiltrate our minds; self-esteem and the inability to express our thoughts and feelings, emotions overtake our voice; clients find themselves hiding in the shadows; just existing and not living; doing and not being. Learning to live within their desired lifestyle practice, gaining more awareness, and the ability to use their voice; clients will be on their way to leading a healthier and mindful lifestyle. In my 7 years of counseling, I care to take a person centered approach and aim to inspire others to engage in a mindfulness lifestyle therapy that innately drives a client to be... Inspired By You!

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 New Berlin, 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 New Berlin 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.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed New Berlin 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 New Berlin 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 New Berlin 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 New Berlin, 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 New Berlin 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 can also try a New Berlin 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 New Berlin 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.

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

New Berlin 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.
