Hello! My name is Veronica Cavazos and I am a licensed professional counselor. I have worked in mental health for the past 14 years and have practiced as a therapist for 7. My experience in mental health has primarily been with community health clinics, however I did spend some time as a therapist in a local psychiatric hospital. I am trained and certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and find it to be the most helpful and useful when working with patients of all ages. The goal-oriented approach of CBT helps to keep individuals focused on what they want to achieve. The approach is not just about how we feel but how we think; directing those negative thoughts in a direction where we can achieve a goal can be empowering. I find having useful tools and handouts helps individuals see their struggles a little more clearly. This can help them to focus on areas of improvement and catching where they can redirect themselves. The strategies of CBT which I find most helpful include, identification, practice of skills and techniques, setting attainable goals, and problem solving. Strategies that can be used even after therapy has been completed. For me CBT is most useful because it can be utilized as a short-term therapy approach and it is structured; helpful to therapist and clients. In my years of working in the field the age range I have worked with spans from a child as young as 3 and the parents to individuals of the elderly age. Although I enjoy working with individuals of all ages, I feeling I am most comfortable with teen to adult aged individuals. The issues I have experience working with include depression, anxiety, relationship and marriage issues, parenting issues, career challenges and trauma. I consider myself to be a caring person as is my approach and style with counseling. CBT allow for the patient and the therapist to work together and I feels it allow us to get to know each other as well. I don't present to be all knowing and like to share experiences and techniques that have helped me along the way in my journey. My goal is to help you recognize your strengths to allow you to see how to over come your difficulties. It takes courage to ask for help and sometimes more to look for it. I praise you for reaching out and I hope we can work together to achieve your goals. CBT is a team effort, I hope as a team we can make positive things happen. My current availability is Friday, Saturday and Monday from 9am - 1pm. Would you like to schedule an appointment?

I'm glad to introduce myself to you and look forward to us possibly working together in collaboration to address whatever has brought you here. I have been in private practice as a licensed psychotherapist (LPC) for the past 37 years, most of that time in Dallas. I moved to the Bay Area in California 8 years ago (best decision i ever made!) and added Life Coaching to my practice. My work is much different now than in Texas--instead of going to a brick and mortar office every day and seeing clients, I now work exclusively on the phone and on line and have become involved with several projects on different platforms, including as an online coach for a decision making start up, and as a counselor for the Life Reimagined program. i also received Disaster Management Training and became certified as a telephonic critical incident responder. I received my Master's from Arizona State University and I have been licensed since 1983 after gaining early experience in psychiatric hospital social work and mental health center settings. In my practice, I have worked with individuals on a wide variety of issues, including anxiety and depression, relationships, separation and divorce, family conflicts, parenting, grief and loss, and chronic illness. i am a cancer survivor (30 years healthy and happy) and have talked with many people experiencing catastrophic illness and disability. In 2011, I became a Certified Life Coach, receiving training through Coach Training Alliance. I am now fortunate enough to be able to blend my years of experience as a therapist and life coach with my own life experiences to work with Baby Boomers as they face the challenges and transitions in the new chapters in their lives. Most of the issues that bring people into a counseling relationship can be addressed in three phases: First is the "What"--what is your situation, problem, experience, etc. Next is the "So What--what effect have these experiences had on your decisions, choices, lifestyle, behaviors The third is the "Now What"--where to go from here. My experience in solution oriented, brief therapy has led to an emphasis on this "now what" and the changes that can make a big difference in your life. i would be honored to be your partner in your growth journey! Best, Chris Ryan

My goal is to first and foremost provide you with a safe space to talk about anything you want. If you’ve never taken therapy before, I think you’ll find much relief in simply having an unbiased person with whom you can share anything you’d like. Together, we will do everything from addressing and solving the more obvious concerns in your life, to diving deeper and discovering the more hidden sources of your pain. Regardless of how deep you want to go, we will make progress.

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. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

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 Haslet 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 Haslet 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 76177 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 Haslet 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 Haslet 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 Haslet, 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.

Haslet 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.
