I absolutely love what I do and I view each day as an opportunity to increase in love, peace, joy, and believing that all other increase (i.e. spiritual and material things) will naturally follow. Not only do I work to increase myself, but I also absolutely love helping others to increase in these areas. I primarily use Cognitive Behavior Therapy, with a mix of Solution based Therapy, and Person Center Therapy, and many different skills and interventions. I have worked in various settings; with clients from many different cultural/ethnic groups; and with various presenting problems. These presenting problems include major depression, anxiety; bipolar disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Psychosis, suicidal crisis and multiple suicide attempts; and well as feelings of self harm and harm to others; and other many other problems. When working with clients I like to begin to build the client and therapist relationship/rapport right away, and use this to create individualized treatment for each client. Whenever you make the decision to think about change in your life and/or are ready to begin change, I want to be here for you every step of the way. I pray each day "Lord let today be an adventure and not just a chore". I have been to the deepest depth of depression, death fear, hopelessness, worthlessness to highest out of control points of mania with very risky and reckless behavior and then back to living each day as the "best me". I desire to help guild you through the rough and tough times in life and all the way to truly living "your very best you and your very best life". Whenever you are ready really live your life, and not simply exist, I will be here waiting for you.

Introduction to Dr. Wick, Psychologist Link to improved version of the below: https://www.dropbox.com/s/szktnr50u1eyfwm/Introduction%20to%20Dr.%20Wick%20Betterhelp.pdf?dl=0 If you are reading this, it is likely that you have exhausted all your own abilities to resolve your problems that you believe a professional like I can help. That’s the first important step toward solving your issues. I practice Teletherapy, because I have found it to be the most practical, and supportive of the client-base I support. There are people (with serious suicidal thoughts/behaviors or serious mental disorders), who require face-to-face therapy, an institutional setting or a rehab clinic. If you find yourself in a crisis and you need help immediately, in America dial 911 and ask for assistance or go to your Local Hospital Emergency. In other countries, if an emergency number exists, call it or seek help at your Local Hospital Emergency or physician. Teletherapy is providing an opportunity for therapists to see a wider range of clients, who cannot drive to a therapist’s office due to distance, time required, or personal limitations (as physical difficulties or responsibilities as childcare). Also, because I will answer messages (though often not immediately), I can provide you brief help when you need it between sessions. However, I never answer the telephone, because I am often out of range of service, talking to a person in crisis, or some other reason that makes it very difficult to promise to provide that service. I provide internet therapy sessions (video/voice) through the online-encrypted application. You may have other reasons for trying teletherapy including being locked down to due to COVID or other health issues, difficulty finding professionals in your area, cost, or curiosity. Those are just as valid. Whatever the reason that brought you here, you should know that teletherapy is likely to becoming a major method of providing mental health to others. In the near future, it will likely eclipse the in-office approach as the major way services are provided. However, as stated above, there will likely always be a need for physical face-to-face services for particular clients with issues that are suited for videoconferencing. (for more information on my views and approach to teletherapy can be found at the bottom of this document.) Finding a therapist to meet your needs is a difficult effort. People use many different methods – word of mouth, yellow pages (where they still exist), internet searches, internet sites where professionals pay to present themselves, even paper media. However, as you read the blurbs people write or view their webpage describing the therapists, it is difficult to select a therapist. But, no method is perfect. So, my recommendation to you is to try out a therapist for a couple of sessions like you would a pair of shoes. Does the relationship feel right, comfortable, and a good fit for your needs? Most good therapists would rather you move to someone else than to stay with them reluctantly or unwillingly. On the other hand, it is difficult to open up yourself repeatedly in search of a therapist. You are looking for a therapist that is “good enough” with whom to build a therapeutic relationship. However, after you have developed a good therapeutic relationship with a therapist, you may find yourself wanting to quit. Be cautious to act on impulse. It is likely you are on the verge of a major positive break through and your conscious or subconscious wants to keep you where you are. If possible, discuss your feeling with your therapist. (Unless you feel your therapist is practicing unethical behavior, then contact their professional board.) So why try me? My first graduate degree in psychobiology (brain research) where I began my graduate studies in psychology. While completing that degree in psychology, I worked in the areas of statistics, research design, and human factors which lead me to a developing a program for training helicopter pilots. I published one book on the skill retention of helicopter pilots. This led me to working for a NASA think tank for over a decade, solving problems in the Space Shuttle and Space Station programs. You can review my papers and presentations on my NASA work in my resume. Meanwhile, I completed two graduate degrees in therapy – one in family therapy and a second in counseling psychology. I have over 30 years of therapeutic experience in a variety of settings. I worked for a five years in schools doing school psychology with teenagers. For decades, I had private practices in family therapy and counseling psychology where most of my work was with state agencies. I spent the last of my professional career working for the VA with Veterans. Again, a review of my papers and presentations will give you a feel for the breath of my knowledge of psychology beyond counseling. You can find most of them on Google professional search engine under Daniel T. Wick. Why am I still working after all these years? I found retirement boring and I am good at this. I have found that continuing to help people wonderfully rewarding – better that working in the garden or watching Netflix. When I was younger, I worked with two therapists who saw clients into their 80s and now I understand why. Helping others gives a purpose to my life. I am empathetic to a degree that some “experts” might say is a fault in my therapeutic approach. The best descriptor of my approach is “eclectic” meaning the integration of the different approaches I have studied, the theories, interventions, and approaches over the decades to help others. (I wrote a paper describing my approach decades ago, that can be found in the "Papers" section below.) It should be obvious to the casual observer that one size shoe does not fit everyone – so eclectic. To be limited to one approach means I have to change you so my approach can help. I would rather mold myself to who you already are and choose a unique approach for you. Once, I think I have something to offer you I will find some way to present it to you. I wish you the best of luck as you search for a therapist. I hope I can be of help. Drop me an email at BetterHelp server or drwickusa@protonmail.com and we can discuss whether I am the right person for you. My resume and publications can be found here. https://www.dropbox.com/s/0ynroeztqppmq80/resume2021forpage.pdf?dl=0 Some papers I have written on my approach or thoughts here. https://www.dropbox.com/s/ogq2bpm0mwxwsq6/student%20version2.pdf?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/cnq325l0ncyqiuz/steppingthroughthedoorofsocialconstuctionism.pdf?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/c9oo48tpjktzz9i/self-referent%20revised%207_18_21.pdf?dl=0

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Beeville helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Beeville therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Beeville 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 Beeville 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. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 78102 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. 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 Beeville 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 Beeville 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 Beeville, 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.

Beeville 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.
