It is not always what happens to us that impacts us but rather how we respond to what happened. My background in Family Systems Theory enables me to help people connect and consider how multiple factors- including relationships, health, and spirituality-impact one's life. My aim is to counsel, coach and encourage those who may be struggling to achieve in a particular area of life or feel that their growth has been halted. Together, I am certain we can identify your obstacles and reset the course. Though I am skilled in the treatment of emotional and behavioral issues-including depression, trauma, substance abuse and family stressors- I believe what sets me apart is my ability to uses my gift of insight and compassion in conjunction with my academic accomplishments and experience. I believe everyone has tools to rebuild what seems broken or shattered. I have helped many activate the right tools at the right time. I have over 20 years of successful experience as a licensed Psychotherapist and has helped a wide variety of adults, couples, children & families reach their goals. I look forward to helping you!

Hi, my name is Wilbur and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have 3 years of experience working as a therapist and have worked with clients ranging from teens to late adulthood, concerning depression, anxiety, parenting stressors, relationship issues, family problems, career challenges/burnout, chronic pain/chronic illness, grief counseling, and transitioning life stages, as well abuse and trauma (sexual, verbal, physical, emotional). My therapy style is eclectic and my approach combines cognitive-behavioral therapy and person-centered therapy tailored to understand the individual and working with them to meet unique and specific needs. I believe everyone deserves to be given a non-judgmental space where they are free to be their best and worst selves so they can discover how or who they want to be moving forward. I believe in the simultaneous drawback of labels: how they can help create new identity and completion as well as stigmatize and limit. Working together will necessitate a greater sense of self-awareness. Whether you are seeking change for a healthier happier life, or just need a non judgmental ear to listen, I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

STATEMENT OF PROFESSIONAL DISCLOSURE Patricia L. Rembert-Anderson, MHR, LPC, NCC #10207 OK/#93160 TX I am required by law to furnish you with this document. I hold a Bachelor of Business Administration degree with specialization in Management from Cameron University and a Master of Human Relations degree from The University of Oklahoma with a focus on counseling. I am currently working on certification for Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC). The licensing website is www.ok.gov/behavioralhealth for Oklahoma and www.bhec.texas.gov/texas for Texas where you can access the law and regulations which govern my licenses. I will furnish you with printed materials about the requirements of my licensure if you so desire. You may contact (without giving your name), the following State Boards for information pertaining to my licensures #10207-OK and #93160-TX respectively: State Board of Behavioral Texas State Board of Health Licensure Examiners of Professional Counselors 3815 N. Santa Fe, Ste. 110 1801 Congress Ave., Ste. 7.300 Oklahoma City, OK 73118 Austin, TX 78701 Telephone: (405) 522-3696 Telephone: (512) 305-7700 www.ok.gov/behavioralhealth www.bhec.texas.gov/texas I have been educated and trained in a variety of psychological approaches. The Humanistic approach, which says for a person to "grow", they need an environment that provides them with genuineness (openness and self-disclosure), acceptance (being seen with unconditional positive regard), and empathy (being listened to and understood) most closely reflects my personal belief. The Cognitive-Behavioral approach, which says that our thoughts and feelings profoundly affect our emotions and behaviors, is another approach that I follow. The goal of therapy will be to diminish existing problems by examining and identifying those thought patterns which are negative and problematic and restructuring them into more positive and adaptive patterns of thinking about oneself and one’s environment. If you have any further questions regarding my training or practice, please feel free to contact me.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Panhandle 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 Panhandle 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 Panhandle 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 a BetterHelp therapist 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?

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.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family?

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Panhandle 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 while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Panhandle.

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 from a therapist. A Panhandle 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 with a counselor 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 that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy with a licensed counselor 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 Panhandle, 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.

Panhandle 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.
