These counselors will be able to help you make progress toward defeating your depression or anxiety issues for good. It can take time and you will need to be dedicated to the process, but an online counselor will always be there for you. They can turn tough days into something that is more manageable and you can start to heal yourself over time.

Welcome. My name is Elizabeth, and I am here to offer support and active listening and to help you feel better so that you can get to where you want to be to find some peace in your life. I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Texas. I have been a licensed counselor for close to 15 years. I worked as a master counselor for 10 years prior to being licensed. I have a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas in Austin and my Master of Science degree in Counseling from Texas A & M University in Corpus Christi. I have done a lot of work to support persons who have experienced trauma in their life. I have worked with both women and men who have been victim/survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. I have worked with trauma victims/survivors of other crimes as well. In addition, I have experience working in psychiatric/behavioral health settings to offer support to persons who have mental health challenges, such as depression, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, and PTSD symptoms. In behavioral health settings, I have also worked with persons who struggle with substance abuse issues. My experience working in inpatient and outpatient settings gave me the opportunity to facilitate groups for individuals who are seeking help and need to know they are not alone in their struggle. In addition, I have worked with individuals and couples with general life stressors and life changes, who simply need some help and support to be better humans. I have been a crisis counselor working in shelter for those who survive sexual assault and domestic violence and seek a safe place to be. In addition, I have worked with geriatric clients, who are adjusting to this time in their life when they want to reflect and process the challenges they experience as older adults in the world. I am a person who keeps in mind that everyone comes from different places in the world, different belief systems, and different ways of being. Because of this, I will do my best to keep in mind that we all are of different ethnicity, different sexuality, and different cultures. My therapeutic style involves helping you find the tools and the best strategies to use to get your goals met. I do so in a client-centered, solution focused, and cognitive behavioral approach, meeting you—the client—wherever you are in your life.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) based in Texas with 15 years experience helping people dealing with a variety of personal issues. I am a graduate of Abilene Christian University and the University of Texas at Austin. Prior to earning my LCSW license, I worked for 25 years teaching parents how to cope with the transitions of life due to childbearing and parenting. My professional counseling experience includes private practice, community service and hospice medical social work. As a therapist I have assisted people dealing with anxiety, grief, trauma, abuse, faith challenges, depression and self esteem. Making the decision whether or not to seek help is a personal, and a very private one. In my experience the Client/Therapist relationship is a foundation of effective counseling. A person’s connection and comfort with the therapist are essential aspects of building a trust relationship and go far beyond what a therapeutic modality can offer by itself. I honor each person’s life struggles and believe that past circumstances help us recognize the strengths we want to take forward in life as well as helping us grow beyond past difficulties. This healing work better equips us to deal with current pain, trauma, and/or disappointments.

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.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Wharton region and in the state of Texas. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Wharton or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Wharton 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 Wharton 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 Wharton 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). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Wharton 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.

Wharton therapists 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 Wharton 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 Wharton 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 psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in TX, therapists may be booked out with clients.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Wharton counselor?

Before seeing your Wharton 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 Wharton.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy 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 Wharton 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 Wharton 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 with a therapist 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 therapist 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 Wharton, 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.

Wharton 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 during telehealth appointments?

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.
