Welcome to Better Help! You've taken a huge step, and I'm sure you're wondering how this works and whether it's the right fit for you.
My name is Vickie McDaniel, and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Oklahoma. I am also a Licensed Independent Social Worker for the state of South Carolina. I earned my Master of Social Work degree from the University of Oklahoma in 2011. I've worked in many different settings with individuals and families who have a variety of personal issues such as depression/anxiety, stress, family problems, trauma/abuse, eating disorders, relationships/parenting and the grief and loss of people or of their pet. As a clinician, my experience has taught me that the most important aspect of counseling by far is the connection and comfort you feel with the person you choose to share your personal struggles. I believe we can all grow through challenging experiences by increasing our self-awareness, self-esteem, positive thinking, and problem solving techniques. Sometimes another person, one who isn't in our immediate circle, can offer a perspective or additional support, that gives us movement on a difficult situation when we feel stuck. It would be my privilege to be that person for you. We all want to be able to share our personal truths and be accepted and understood. I believe it's very important to be open-minded and non-judgmental when someone shares their personal story or experiences with me. Our relationship with our self and others has worth and is useful to explore in counseling.
You are welcome to message me anytime through Better Help. The frequency with which you can have access to a counselor to work through day to day emotions and problem solving is extremely beneficial for most and a nice change from traditional outpatient counseling. I usually check messages twice each day, seven days per week. I offer messaging, live chat and phone sessions with limited availability in the evenings and weekends. Please note that what you see in my calendar may not reflect my only availability so you always want to check with me through messaging first.
I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Vickie McDaniel. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
I've been working with Vickie for a couple of months and she is absolutely wonderful! She is a great listener and has provided such a wonderfully safe space for me.
Vickie really listens
I value Vickie's advice and look forward to our sessions more than my in person therapist.
First therapist I signed up with on here did not make me feel great. Meaning I sent the first introductory message with questions and just got back a "I look forward to speaking with you". Vickie, on the other hand, had fantastic introductory questionnaires that really made me feel like we could hit the ground running with our first call. She was also very quick to respond to messages. Fantastic.
Great lady! She is kind, caring and listens! She has helped me tremendously in my life <3
Vickie McDaniels is a therapist I can trust with my concerns and aperson that does not make judgements on you in a negative way. She's there to help and that's just what I needed. I'm grateful for betterhelp for giving me this opportunity to receive this type of help via phone. Thanks.
She ish highly recommended, she understand your needs and she is also a great listener
