My name is Thom Wilder. I have over 30 years experience as a pastoral counselor and am currently a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in Texas. I specialize in the challenges of clients who deal with chronic illness and chronic pain and am the author of Overcoming Chronic Illness, a workbook designed for both therapy groups and individuals who are facing the challenges of chronic illness of all kinds. I work with both the patients and their caregivers in accepting the difficult realities of their condition and focusing on those factors over which they have the most control. This interest and focus comes from over 20 years spent as the primary caregiver for my wife who suffers from several chronic conditions including Rheumatoid Arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, fibromyalgia and the accompanying chronic pain. This has given me a great empathy and compassion for the over 85 million Americans who suffer from some sort of chronic illness and are trying to live a full and meaningful life in spite of their health situation. In addition to the chronic illness emphasis, I am also experienced in working with clients facing a myriad of mental health challenges including -Depression -Anxiety -Stress -Trauma -Marriage and relationships -Anger -Grief -End of life issues -Interpersonal communication -Compassion fatigue -Chronic pain -Conflict resolution -Life choices My Therapeutic Modalities include: -Cognitive Behavior Thearapy -Dialectical Behavior Therapy -Acceptance and Commitment Therapy -Strength-based Therapy -Client Centered Therapy -Solution Focused Therapy -Mindfulness I take an integrative approach to health. We are all biological, psychological, social, and I believe spiritual beings. To be totally healthy we must take note of the conditions in all of those areas for each of those domains has an either a positive or negative impact on each of the others. In session I work with clients on all of these areas, not just the psychological domain. I also recognize that the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client will determine the level of benefit for the client. As I tell all my clients, I am paid to be your counselor but I care about you for free. I would love to help you with the challenges you face as well.

I am an Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with over 5 years of experience working as a psychotherapist, and over 10 years of experience working in the Behavioral Health field.

I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels.

I utilize a different amount of techniques to include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), along with other approaches that I utilize based on the needs of my clients. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change.

I wake up every day excited and passionate to work with people in psychotherapy. When I think about helping people, I believe that establishing a good therapeutic relationship and giving clients a voice is what helps them the most. I also believe that good listening is the main component of establishing a therapeutic relationship with clients. Although I consider myself as eclectic, I incorporate various therapy techniques into my practice such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Mindfulness-based approaches to help my clients. With that said, I am open to client feedbacks and what works best for them. I strive with every client to build a trusting therapeutic relationship where they feel they have a voice and where we collaboratively create a safe space to discuss life challenges and stressors. I have been working as a Licensed Professor Counselor (LPC) for approximately 10 years specializing in grief/loss, anxiety, depression, family/relationship issues, anger management and abuse. I have worked in numerous populations and settings over my career which include private practices, non-profit organizations, agencies, and public schools. Primarily, I work with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, grief/loss, domestic abuses, and anger issues. I am also a Certified Anger Therapist (CART) who is well equipped and experienced to help individuals cope and manage anger problems in a healthier way. My goal is to create an empathetic, brave space to explore emotions, and life experiences and take steps towards living your best authentic life that aligns with your values. I look forward to working with you. Let’s begin the journey!

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 that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Lubbock. 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 Lubbock, 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. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Lubbock or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns. They may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Lubbock 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 Lubbock 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 Lubbock 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 Lubbock, 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 Lubbock 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 Lubbock 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 Lubbock 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 Lubbock 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 Lubbock 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 79407 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 Lubbock 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 Lubbock 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 Lubbock, 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.

Lubbock 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.
