I am a licensed professional counselor in Georgia with 10 years’ experience working with adults and children to overcome fears and challenges that keep them from living their best lives. I have worked with people dealing with a variety of issues including, depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, grief and life transitions. I have also helped people who have experienced domestic violence and emotional abuse to heal and find inner strength to move forward in their life. Much of my experience has been in university and community college counseling centers. I have also worked in the community mental health environment, domestic violence shelters, and in-patient adolescent facility.
Every person is wonderfully unique and comes with their own special qualities. In my counseling relationships, I listen to and respect my clients and am sensitive and compassionate to their unique set of needs and experiences. My counseling approach incorporates cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, positive psychology and mindfulness. I want to provide an environment of support for you and work with you to gain insight and determine a plan of action that fits your needs.
I am always inspired by people who have the courage and strength to seek something better for their lives. Change can be challenging but is always worth the work. I would be honored to walk with you on your journey.
I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Barbara Beam. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Barbara listens so deeply and has recommended to many healthy coping mechanisms for managing my anxiety. I would not be where I’m at today without her help. She has changed my life for the better and I am so grateful!
Barbara is supportive and offers practical ideas that I can use day to day. Barbara was instrumental in helping me seek and receive my recent ADHD diagnosis
Barbara is kind and always makes me feels that my feelings are valid. She really listens to me and I feel so comfortable talking to her and I never feel like I'm wasting her time.
Having Barbara as my therapist was such a nice experience. She is attentive and open-minded, and respected my boundaries as well as requests with a kind heart. I was super happy with the direction our sessions took and am grateful for her guidance!
Barbara gives me the space to talk about my needs and she gives me her perspective and tools I need to counter things in my life. I am thankful to be paired with her and look forward to our sessions.
Barbara listen to me without me feeling embarrassed it took me years for me to talk about myself
Barbara has been more of help to me. She also directed me to the proper therapy. Thank you!
She's the best.
So far Mrs Beam has been nothing but incredibly helpful. She listens very attentively, gives great advice and doesn't pressure me in any way. She's understanding, kind and also checks in on me when she knows I have something troubling coming up. She's very patient and gives her best to understand me when I have trouble expressing myself. All in all she's a fantastic therapist and I'd recommend her to anyone who needs a great listener and good advice.
Barbra, It was very useful and you were a great listener and understood me like no one ever did! So thank you so much for this experience and for all the help. I will definitely reach out to you again once I can :)
I feel much better after each session with Barbara. She has helped me to love myself again
Barbara is great :)
She is a great listener and gave useful advices such as journaling grateful things in life and journal my thoughts
Barbara is very easy to talk to. I do not feel as though she is judging me when we discuss things happening in my life. She is very calm and listens and also suggests ways I might use to help my situations.
Such a good listener and supportive. Barbara has helped me though a really difficult time. So thankful for everything.
Since starting therapy with Barbara, I have had a chance to discuss practical, actionable ways to approach my days. It has really helped to have Barbara's caring support to get through this difficult time.
Barbara is dynamic and responsive to your needs. Great listener and asks you questions that can make you pause.
Barbara is extraordinary! A professional that listens and shows great empathy and care. She made me feel seen and understood and has given me great tools to manage my anxiety and stress levels. She is also proactive and checks in with you to make sure you are ok. I cannot recommend her enough!
I find it amazing that she can figure me out so quickly and not judge. I feel better after every session. It has been helping me.
Barbara has been wonderful and I am glad to be working with her!
Barbara is a very kind, compassionate and respectful person who knows exactly how to help me feel supported. It's just been 3 sessions and already I'm feeling more confident in my process and making decisions to improve my mindset and have better overall health.
Barbara is empathic kind and understanding.
Barbara has helped me immensely. Very understanding of my situation & offers excellent advice. Genuine, caring & holds a safe space for healing.
I have been paired with Barbara and feel very good about this pairing. Barbara’s professional management style and listening skills are exactly what I was looking for. I have been sharing with Barbara for 4 weeks and I like where we are going with the therapy sessions.
Barbara is clearly a very experienced and brilliant therapist, she definitely has all the understanding and knowledge you’d expect and there’s no doubting she’s a professional.
However these qualities can apply to many in her field and as a review is non-descript, what makes Barbara stand out is her clear and endearing desire to understand you, she wants to know who you are without any doubt so she can do the best she can for you. She’s not doing this because she’s good at it (which she is) but because she wants to help and being as good at it as she is combined with her reasoning for doing it are just two of the reasons she’s so great but enough, I think to persuade you to give her a go. If you need help, Barbara won’t let you down.
I have felt at ease with Barbara, almost instantly. I feel she has a good balance between listening, being caring and kind and offering me ways of challenging my thoughts and feelings. She has given me a safe space to work through my experiences and the confidence to understand myself more. I am looking forward to continuing to work with Barbara.
Barbara has been very helpful for me. She made me feel comfortable to discuss my feelings, as bad or as embarrassed by them as I felt. She listened well and I felt her understanding of what I was going through. She helped me understand why I was feeling the way that I felt and what connections to those feelings I had from experiences in my life. She gave me many tools and resources to be able to work through how I felt and get to a place where I can balance myself out when I am triggered. I'm grateful to have been able to work with Barbara.
I love working with Barbara, she is an amazing listener, she asks really good questions and since working with her I made massive steps ahead. I highly recommend her.
I've had only a few sessions with Barbara but already feel so comfortable talking to her and really feel like she listens and understands. Enjoying the process overall and this is my first time doing therapy so I was a bit nervous but im glad I started!
I have only had one session with Barbara at this stage, however I found Barbara to be professional, friendly, supportive and easy to talk to.
Barbara has been helpful and supportive.
Barbra is wonderful. It’s only been two sessions so far but I’m loving it.
I have only been working with Barbara for a couple of weeks, but it has been a wonderful experience. I’ve been to many counselors in my life, and I feel like she is the best I’ve ever seen. She remembers things we have talked about and she is really good at picking up on areas that need more discussion. I can feel that she really cares.
I am new to counseling and definitely online support. I was a little skeptical and hesitant about using this service. Right from the beginning of our first conversation, I felt very relaxed speaking with Barbara. I feel she takes what I say seriously, listens to me and responds to that point. Her comments and observations are compassionate and supportive and I feel each week i have moved along in my personal journey.
Barbara is really supportive. She understands and clamly listens to my problems and provide me helpful advice and methods. She's great!
Barbara is a one of a kind person whom I can say cares about my situation without judgment.
She responds fairly quickly and is really friendly and positive.
Barbara is timely, understanding, and has an innate ability to keep me on track when I find myself wandering down unproductive rabbit holes. Unlike other therapists I've worked with, she has down to earth, actionable steps that provide new frameworks to view problems with.
