Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor in Texas. I have worked with children, couples, families, and adults for 31 years, and feel I am fulfilling a calling! I have a great deal of experience in the areas of depression, anxiety, surviving childhood trauma, drug and alcohol counseling, and marriage counseling. In addition to working with BetterHelp, I have my own private practice where I specialize in children and families involved in the foster care system. I have worked within the public school setting, contracted with the Department of Defense, and work with children and families within residential settings. I also teach for a local college, training students to become drug and alcohol counselors. I have a Doctorate in Counseling and another Doctorate in Strategic Leadership - Leadership Coaching, and always feel there is more to learn! I believe effective change comes through relationships, so first and foremost I want to establish a comfortable therapeutic relationship with you. From there, we will establish goals and objectives, setting up a road map so you will see where you're going and celebrate each step of the way. I will meet you where you are at, and listen compassionately and non-judgmentally in order to support you on your journey. My counseling style is based in the cognitive-behavioral approach, augmented by trauma informed care and solution-focused practices. No matter what your goals are, you are in the driver's seat because I believe you have everything within you to make wanted changes or handle difficult situations. There's just those times when having someone objective to listen, help, and support will make the difference you need. I'm so glad you've taken this first step toward completing your journey, and I look forward to working with you!

My name is Mark Crowe, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas. I have worked in the mental health field for over 14 years and currently own and operate a private practice in the Greater Houston area. My professional career has involved working for child protective services, and many years working as a high school counselor. I have extensive experience working with young adults, families and parents, and couples. Areas of struggle that I have helped clients include depression, anxiety, grief and loss, parenting issues, relationship and marriage troubles, and family conflict. I understand that seeking counseling can at times take a tremendous amount of courage and emotional effort. Having been in counseling as a child with my own family, I can empathize with this feeling. I have seen counseling when it is ineffective, and I have also been involved when it has provided great healing. As a therapist, I take this experience and seek to make the counseling experience as natural, laid back and easy as possible. I seek to build a comfortable and relaxed relationship with my clients, where we can develop a plan to address the areas in your life which have caused pain, stress and discomfort. I value the counseling relationship and have been described as passionate, responsive and caring by former and current clients. We all go through times of struggle and pain. We all have our stories to tell and our own healing to attain. If you feel like this now and are seeking help, I look forward to the opportunity to work with you. *** NOTE= DUE TO PERSONAL WORK SCHEDULE, I AM ONLY AVAILABLE TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY and FRIDAY MORNINGS FROM 9:30-11am CST.******

My name is Gwendolyn Marentes and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has practiced for 12 years. I have worked with a multitude of people from various backgrounds, and ages. I work primarily using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and employ Narrative Therapy, Client Centered Therapy and Logos-Therapy accordingly. I feel the most influential piece of a therapeutic relationship is the trust and rapport between client and therapist, in which I work diligently at throughout the process of therapy. It is my deepest desire to truly hear and understand the struggles of those who suffer from anxiety, depression and grief. It is through my formal education that I can apply my knowledge but it is moreso through personal experience that I can understand, empathize and validate the raw emotions of human experience in times of vulnerability and emotional discomfort. I strive at offering the individual the respect they deserve while exercising empathy, validation and psychoeducational tools to help individuals cope through these most difficult situations. I believe we can effectively help ourselves once we are taught and empowered to do so. I invite individuals to meet and explore the possibilities of healing and moving forward from a place of emotional discomfort.

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 Saint Hedwig area can be found below:

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

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 Saint Hedwig 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 Saint Hedwig 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.

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 Saint Hedwig 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 Saint Hedwig 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 Saint Hedwig, 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.

Saint Hedwig 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.
