About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I received my Masters of Science in Social Work from the University of Texas in Arlington and I have worked as a therapist for 30 years. I have experience working with people from all backgrounds, ages, and different challenges . I have worked with clients with a variety of problems including anxiety, stress, relationship issues, trauma, grief and loss, depression, and isolation and loneliness.

I believe that feeling comfortable and connected with a therapist is one of the most important aspects of making progress in therapy. I use a client centered approach in therapy as well as cognitive behavioral therapy. I encourage my clients to take action to make changes in their lives that will help them improve, but I also realize that there are some people who just need to talk to someone. I believe your thoughts, feelings, and problems are important and being able to talk to someone about them can be very healing. I am here to listen and to help you get through your difficult times and reach your desired therapy goals.

Makes me feel very comfortable, helped me work through a really tough time and learn how to handle future tough times, have recommended Better Help to countless people based solely off of how great an experience I have had with Trina Middleton.

Trina is an excellent counselor. She is an excellent listener, lets you be yourself, and is amazing at helping me talk through and think through my issues. Grateful for her support, patience, and non-judgemental attitude!

I’ve worked with Trina over several months. She asks very insightful questions and presents a perspective that makes you feel validated and heard. She is super patient and understanding while holding you accountable.

Written by K.R. on Apr 30, 2021 after therapy with Trina for 9 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, eating disorders, and self esteem

I have been working with Trina for almost a year now. She has helped me learn to better understand and cope with my anxiety/ocd, be more open about my needs with those around me, and I have never once felt judged by her. Given my trigger, I have been judged by doctors in the past. Never with Trina. I stopped therapy briefly after speaking with Trina and deciding it was probably a good idea for the time being given my progress... then my world was flipped upside down and then not even two weeks later flipped completely upside down again. So here I am! I am going through some incredibly difficult life events right now and I am so grateful for our sessions and for Trina’s availability outside of sessions. I feel like I can message at any time and I am not a burden to her. She responds promptly and thoughtfully. I feel like she truly cares and I never thought I’d find that in a counselor in person, and especially online. I’m glad I took the chance on betterhelp and I’m beyond grateful I was able to be matched with Trina.

Trina is always so supportive and offers insightful and patient feedback for me. I appreciate her balanced approach and find her style very supportive for my needs. I have tired 3 other BetterHelp therapists but they just weren’t good fits, Trina really makes me feel BetterHelp is a good choice for my needs.

Trina was my first experience with a therapist and I greatly appreciated her help. She was knowledgeable, a great listener, and gave great insight on my issues.

She also gave helpful tips to address some of the issues I was having. She was always on time and never tried to rush through our sessions.I highly recommend her for therapy.
