About me

I am licensed to counsel in Texas with 35 years of professional experience. I have worked well with clients having a wide range of challenges including anxiety and stress, abuse and trauma, loss and spiritual discouragement. I have enjoyed helping people in several different venues including county abuse centers, correctional facilities, churches, and an Internet evangelical outreach.
I look forward to collaborating with you for your personal growth in a safe, interactive environment where your thoughts, emotions, and spiritual concerns can be shared without fear of judgment.
You are a unique creation, and so our work will unfold in its own particular way and at its own pace. I want to support you in exploring your challenges and growing your faith in order to achieve your therapy goals.
Taking the initiative to sign up for therapy requires courage, and I am proud of you for getting started. I look forward to being your partner on this part of your spiritual journey.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Bette Smyth. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Faithful Counseling might be different.

Written on Aug 23, 2023 after therapy with Bette for 2 weeks

I went into therapy with a lot of trauma and hurt from people and circumstances in life and despite trying everything I could, I didn’t know what to do anymore to get better. From the first conversation with my therapist, I have been greatly blessed by her counsel and kind approach, it has been an immense comfort to me as she prays and guides me with Godly counsel and encouragement, helping me process my past traumas and giving advice on how to deal with ongoing situations and concerns for the future.

I’ve been greatly blessed by her prompt replies, being on time for our video sessions and I am already doing much better from our conversations.

Work with me!
