3 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Welcome! My name is Gerri and I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Texas. Counseling is my passion and it’s something I always wanted to do. I have about 3 years’ experience which include working in many settings, such as individual, group and family counseling. Some areas of my expertise include domestic violence, relationships, anger, anxiety, stress, co-dependency, drug/alcohol addiction, adoption, trauma, and abuse. There is no trouble too small or too big, it’s all important. If it’s important to you, it’s important to me. I use all theories in counseling. It all depends on my client for which direction to go. If we need to focus on the past, present or prepare for the future, I will be supporting. Sometimes counseling can be difficult, and it might be uncomfortable or painful, but I will always be supporting through the whole process. My goal is to be the passenger and the client be the driver. I plan to be there every turn we make, even in the difficult turns. I am here for you, even if it’s just to let something out. My goal is to be the strength you need to become a better you. I plan to support you, and to encourage you to become more confident. My success is a better you! I look forward to hearing from 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

What I enjoy most about being a therapist is that each session is a collaborative effort in which both the client and therapist leaves the session with a learning experience that contributes to discovery and growth. I believe that all experiences (good, bad, ugly) are for the purpose of learning and letting go and that therapy is one of the best ways to explore what needs to be learned and let go so a sense of worth and purpose can be fully realized and experienced. I am a licensed professional counselor working in the state of Texas for over 7 years. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, bipolar, trauma, psychosis, addiction, low self worth, and shame issues that have impacted their ability to thrive in relationships and life. My therapy style is compassionate, caring, and person-centered. I seek to create an environment of mutual respect and trust, connectivity, collaboration, courage, creativity, and confidence in self. My approach is grounded in cognitive behavioral approaches that include internal family systems and dialectical behavioral therapy. If you are ready to let go of the burden and chaos that has kept you feeling stuck, unable to find yourself staying in the present moment, and lacking in joy then I would be grateful for the opportunity to guide you in healing. Give yourself the gift of knowing you are safe, protected, blessed, and loved. I look forward to working with you!

I am licensed in Texas with 4 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, & coping with life changes. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey. Life brings us many challenges, and often times we feel depressed, angry, bitter, confused or even anxious. The beauty of life is that it gives an opportunity to review, reflect and reform our own stories so we can keep pushing through our adversities. No matter what age, race, creed or status, healing comes from the support of someone being able to help you take the very first step to recovery. When we are able to take very first step towards our healing, we find peace, joy, and forgiveness again. As a passionate counselor, I believe that clients have the ability to choose how to resolve their own problems and can make their own decisions with my assistance as a facilitator. The use of my techniques enable you to use the resilient power you have to create the change you desire. I believe that a client’s self-awareness, thought processes, strengths and talents, and ability to make positive life choices are the keys to developing self-direction and independence. I use a collaborative approach to counseling that integrates techniques and methods from the following counseling theories: Solution-Focused Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I also provide Christian-Based counseling with these techniques and methods based on client's request. All of these techniques will provide methods to solve problems utilizing the client’s own strengths to meet their needs. Occasionally other approaches will be used such as role-playing and guided imagery when deemed appropriate. As apart of my counseling journey, I am also a school counselor. I have been in education for the past 15 years and have learned to understand, empower, and help support tools and strategies for our youth. Recently recognized as a 2022 American School Counselor of the Year Finalist, apart of my work in this role is to help our teens grow socially, academically, and behaviorally at home, at school, and with peers. Our life is a story. Each day, each moment in time, adds to the pages of our story. The beauty of life is that it gives us the ability to rewrite our own stories no matter our age, race, background, or status. Though we can’t change the past, I would love to help you as your therapist rediscover your resilience, passion, and mostly importantly self love to get through the next chapter in your life.

Together we will also learn mindfulness skills such as grounding techniques to help you identify soothing emotions and feelings to self regulate depression and anxiety. To add, I can help you to identify and process negative emotions and feelings, that often lead to unhealthy choices and behaviors. Together, we will collaborate a treatment plan that can help you thrive and live a more purposeful and meaningful life. My goodness-CONGRATULATIONS to you!

How to find a therapist for counseling in Freer

Finding the best therapist close by in Freer can feel challenging, but know that once you narrow your search for a counselor serving your area, you can find a therapist in your city that is accepting new clients and fits your goals. Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, marriage, family issues, or other emotional challenges, feel proud that you have begun your search to find the mental health care services in Freer that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing with a therapist.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Freer. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders. If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in Freer, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Freer region and in the state of Texas. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Freer or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

There are all kinds of therapists working with clients today across the United States and in the greater Freer area in different types of therapy, including:

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

When you're ready to start your search and find Freer therapists, have in mind what type of therapy you'd like your provider to be most experienced with and choose an experienced provider with a practice located near you in the city of Freer, elsewhere in Duval, or in the greater state of Texas.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Freer 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 Freer 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 Freer 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 a BetterHelp therapist 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). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

How is a licensed therapist on this Freer online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Freer, 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 Freer psychiatrists to prescribe a drug or medication as treatment, or perform psychological assessments and other psychiatric services.

How does working with a professional 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, post traumatic stress disorder, and more. An online mental health therapist, including the therapists in Freer 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 can also try a Freer 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 in Freer?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Freer 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.

Freer therapists 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 Freer 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 Freer 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 psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in TX, therapists 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 78357 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Freer counselor?

Before seeing your Freer 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 while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Freer.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy 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 from a therapist. A Freer 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 with a Freer counselor 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 that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor 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 therapist 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 Freer, 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.

Freer 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 during telehealth appointments?

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.
