Going for a swim can be a ton of fun, or it can be a physical workout. There’s a considerable difference between splashing in the water and swimming laps. White Settlement, Texas is home to one incredibly cool water park where you can do both. Like life, it gives you the chance to relax and play, or work hard and break a sweat.

However you choose to use White Settlement’s water park and its other amenities, it’s important to know you should take care of your mental health needs too, whether they’re as small as getting splashed or as tricky as treading water. Consider contacting a nearby mental health professional today.

Hi there! I am so happy you came across my BetterHelp site and are taking steps to take care of your mental health. I am very passionate about providing mental health services and breaking the stigma around taking care of mental health needs. I think it is vital in the therapeutic process to feel comfortable with your therapist and I wanted to share about myself so you can see if I might be a good fit for you. My name is Andrea Kay and I have my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Texas at Tyler. I have been a counselor in Texas since 2016 and have worked in a variety of settings and with many different populations. I've counseled in crisis centers working with people in their lowest battles of depression, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. I've counseled kids, teens and families at a community counseling center to work on improving communication, setting healthy boundaries and creating healthy home environments. I've counseled adults through a range of life experiences from general anxiety, transitions, loss, depression and low self-esteem and I also enjoy working with anyone looking to focus on general self growth regardless of having a specific area of concern. My approach is to listen and understand your experiences and collaborate with you to set goals and work toward a more desirable situation. There are a lot of things that we can not control in our lives which is important to acknowledge, and there are also things we can control like our approach, outlook and perspective on our situations. Using an eclectic approach combining cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, narrative therapy and person centered techniques we will work together toward your goals and overall improvement in your mental health. I hope to have the pleasure of meeting you and be well!

Hi, I'm Katherine -- Following life-changing paths with my clients is not my first career. I’ve been a writer, a teacher, and a homeschooling mom. I’ve survived trauma and divorce, fought depression, and lived with chronic illness. I’ve made tons of mistakes, and I’ve outright failed—more times than I can count. Sometimes I wasn’t sure I’d recover. Counseling helped me heal. And it can help you, too. Sometimes healing means diving deep—into your past, your pain, and even your shame. Your own depths can be a scary place. But there’s treasure down there, too, if you just know where to find it. Deep inside, there is a person created in God’s own image, uniquely wired to be like no one else in the world. You have gifts and strengths you may have forgotten… maybe even some you’ve never discovered. I’m honored to be able offer a welcoming space for you to explore yourself. It’s safe here. You’re free to be completely, unashamedly you... without all those filters and masks we all when we’re afraid to let anyone see beneath the surface. I want to hear your story, offer validation, demonstrate acceptance and grace, and encourage you as you take those first steps towards becoming the person God designed you to be. Discover the life you’ve always wanted as you learn to extend grace to yourself. A life of abundant joy and hope really is possible. Take that first step—schedule your first appointment today!

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

You can also try a White Settlement 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 White Settlement 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.

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 White Settlement 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 White Settlement 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 White Settlement, 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.

White Settlement 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.
