Hi! My name is Patrice Bazer and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in Casper, Wyoming. I earned my Master's degree in Social Work from the University of Michigan in 2010. Since this time I have been working with children, adolescents, and their families in a variety of settings many different issues; some of which include depression, anxiety, school problems, family conflict, grief and loss, relationship issues, self-esteem, trauma, abuse and neglect, and behavioral issues. I would describe my approach as client centered and goal oriented. I like to meet my clients where they are at and work as a team to achieve the goals that we set together using techniques from treatment modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy. I believe that there can be a time in everybody's like where counseling can help them. Be it a difficult life change, difficult emotions you are not sure how to overcome and cope with, etc. I believe therapy is a great place to start and believe in working as a team to help you achieve your personal goals. I would love to help you reach those goals and soar pass to things you may have never thought possible. My space is that of openness and a place for you to come and discuss your problems in a safe and non-judgmental space. Let me help you through the difficult moments in this thing we call life.non-

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in TX and WY. I hold certifications as a mediator for conflict resolution, family reconciliation and divorce & custody mediation. I am a certified premarital counselor and parenting counselor. I completed a Professional Training Program in Mind-Body Medicine.

We can discuss anything that is important to you under a non-judgmental environment. I create a safe and comfortable space for my clients who can be who he/she is. I love what I am doing as a therapist. You hear, "Find a job you love, you never work a day," That's me.

I see beauty in everything and believe in strengths in clients. I want you to know that no matter what happened in the past or what is going on in your life, you have every right to be happy and you are going to find it. My approaches are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person Centered Therapy, Mindfulness-based and Spiritual. My view of therapy is finding “Truth, "about life, human nature, relationship, human condition, generational cycle, upbringing,...etc., which will help you understand them deeply, gain insight, and ultimately "set you free" from anxiety, panic attacks, depression, and/or stress, overall free from human suffering. Furthermore, therapy is nurturing “inner world,” recognizing you are not just “Thoughts,” “Emotions,” “Body,” but much more beyond, above, infinite, timeless, formless, and eternal “Being” with “Soul” and “Spirit” which is the essence of who you are, “Perfect,” “Complete,” “Whole,” “Original,” and “Enough." Therapy is the journey to realize the essence of who you are as a human being not as a human doing, practice being in the present moment to live not at the mercy of external world, eventually living with inner joy and peace.

Life is full of challenges, but being happy shouldn’t be one of them, and feeling like you are alone shouldn’t be another. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor with over sixteen years of experience helping people overcome some of life’s biggest challenges. I have experience in job and career development, disability adjustment and coping, addictions, relationships, anger management, anxiety, depression, and trauma. I have a direct, solution-focused approach and take pride in being non-judgmental and accepting. I consider it my responsibility to help my patients develop coping skills to address their problems. Counseling provides a therapeutic relationship where you can explore issues and work towards personal growth and healing. It presents an opportunity to negotiate obstacles and find healthy coping skills that lead to healthier decisions. It gives you the opportunity to learn new ways of thinking and behaving that helps you find peace and happiness. I use several approaches, including cognitive-behavior therapy, rational emotive behavior therapy, acceptance, commitment therapy, and brief therapy techniques. It takes courage to seek help, and I want to congratulate you on taking that first step. I look forward to working with you.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Big Piney 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 Big Piney 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 Big Piney may not take health insurance, some in the state of Wyoming 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 Wyoming 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?

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.

You can also try a Big Piney 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 Big Piney 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 WY, 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 Big Piney 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 Big Piney 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 Big Piney, Wyoming 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.

Big Piney 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.
