Beth Trennepohl

(MS, LMHP, LPC)

About Me

I'm in my fifties now, and I have been a lifelong counselor; I think it probably started on the kindergarten playground. I've been in a Christian marriage for over 30 years, have two grown sons, and two grandchildren. I have been counseling in private practice in Nebraska since receiving my Professional Counseling degree from Grand Canyon University in early 2015 and have recently moved to South Dakota where I am also licensed and working in private practice. I am a spiritually mature Christian and I have been able to assist hundreds of clients of all beliefs and walks of faith in my counseling career. I simply meet my clients where they are and together we focus on where they want to be. Where it is you'd like to be?

My clients love their work with me and I know this because they refer me to their family and friends! I am a positive, solution-oriented, compassionate counselor with a short-term, no-excuses, future-focused, empowering approach. Clients often feel immediate relief and find hope in dire circumstances after just one session, and then we just get together to reinforce the principles, learn new skills and practice their application. I help my clients regain control of their own emotional state so they can weather any present or future storm, even if that storm seems to come from their past.

I believe my deep faith and midwest roots help me to connect in a more compassionate way with my clients. I am skilled at finding the best parts of clients and letting them shine. I love lifting lids, unlocking new perspectives, and releasing hope. I like to teach principles and skills clients can use both in their current situations and over the course of their lifetime. I want nothing more than to equip my clients for everyday life and future challenges -- I want the benefits of therapy to extend way beyond our counseling relationship.

If you are ready to figure out what is tripping you up, holding you back, and keeping you from the love, joy, and peace you desire, let's talk today.
Maybe you've hit rock bottom. Maybe you're just trying to avoid hitting it.
Let's talk about what you want to be different.
I can help -- let's talk today.

There's always a way; let's find it!

Beth has a very warm and friendly approach and voice. She shows genuine care and quickly picks up and understands the worries or troubles of others.

Beth is amazing- she is my biggest cheerleader, accountable, consistent, respectful, a great listener and a great teacher. I would highly recommend her. Her work with me has been such a gift!

I really like how Beth helps me navigate a direction in a pool of mess. When I felt overwhelmed with many things, Beth helped narrow things down, identified the root causes and changed my mentalities. Beth understands how I work as a person, helps me to embrace it and as well as direct it to achieve my goals. I felt better immediately after talking to Beth.

Within one week Beth has worked with me to get down to the nitty gritty parts of what I have been struggling with and has absolutely changed it around. I have had some of the most positive weeks ever! Beth is helping me change my perspective on my struggles and is encouraging me to live my best life. I am very thankful for the work Beth has been doing in my life!

I’m not a very confident person and I didn’t like the idea of face to face counseling. I decided to try BetterHelp and I am beyond delighted with the outcome. My counselor Beth is amazing! She keeps in touch with me between sessions which is fantastic, and I feel supported even though she is so far away. I’m so glad I found Beth and BetterHelp.

Beth is very positive and is a good listener. I find her advice practical and I like that she helps me find ways to problem solve, not just to vent. I am already feeling more positive and ready to approach my problems in a different way after just a few sessions.

Beth is a great counselor. In a short period of time, she can help you learn more about yourself than you already know. There's no fluff, it's just real and helpful.

Beth was exactly what I needed at this time in my life. I felt completely lost and didn't know where to turn. It is as if she was meant to come into my life and just simply nudge me in the right direction.

Beth is amazing. She understood what i was feeling and provide alternate perspective of its meaning, and provided tools for me to resolve these issues in a more obvious and realistic manner. She made be in control of my thoughts, actions and feelings whilst still maintaining my integrity. Its feels great being in this state of mind and being more aware of ones surroundings. I owe all this to Beth. Thank you Beth

Beth provides a safe place to discuss difficult things. She is friendly, considerate and empathetic.

I always look forward to my sessions with her as I come away with entirely new perspectives, which I’ve found to be incredibly helpful.

Beth does an excellent job of tracking my thinking and behavior. She has helped me with challenges and growth each time we have spoken.

Written by D.A. on Apr 29, 2019 after counseling with Beth for 8 months on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

Beth is understanding, and I like that she takes her time and replies to my every line of worry, or cause of concern. I am new to this counseling notion, and she has made me love it. I have interacted with her via video, and she is accommodating to me as well. If I ever need extra minutes to talk, she makes it happen. Thank you Beth, for you have truly made me into a better person... :)

Written by T.R. on Mar 16, 2019 after counseling with Beth for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues

I just finished a session with Beth and I’ve never felt better. The first two sessions I questioned if this process and counselor was right for me. I’m glad I hung in there! Beth put clarity to my thoughts and words. I feel a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I recommend to not judge the first couple sessions as I did.Hang in there.

Written by D.A. on Dec 08, 2018 after counseling with Beth for 2 months on issues concerning depression, grief, eating disorders, and self esteem

Beth is wonderful, kind, attentive and generally an incredible person. She helps me cope with absolutely everything, and does so in a gentle and attentive manner, never patronising or harsh but in a way that completely understands and meets my needs. She's thoughtful and really caring - I've never made progress before like I have with Beth. An amazing individual and an excellent counsellor. Thank you so much for everything!

Written by J.O. on Nov 01, 2018 after counseling with Beth for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and anger management

My experience is nothing but positive so far. I found the therapy to be a bit out of my budget but i paid for a month anyway and i am so glad i did. It really gives me the tools to work on my struggles. It is hard work but so much worth the effort!

Written by T.A. on Oct 23, 2018 after counseling with Beth for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, and self esteem

Beth has been so helpful.
She is always on time for our appointments and I feel like she really takes time to listen to my problems and not only tell me what I want to hear but what I need to hear. She's helped me through a few different dilemmas I've experienced and without her advice and guidance I think id be in a very different place mentally.

Written by J.E. on Oct 22, 2018 after counseling with Beth for 1 month on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, and self esteem

Beth was caring and professional and allowed me to explore some issues and work out some underlying things for me. Beth was attentive and listened very well and I feel very empowered from her guidance. Highly recommended.

I consulted BetterHelp on how to cope as I had developed deep feelings of inferiority as I discovered I had a learning disorder. Beth Trennepohl was extremely helpful and professional. She has truly exceptional ability to make you feel worthy.

Working with Beth has been amazing and I feel so much more positive in day-to-day life. I have already had so many 'lightbulb' moments during our time together - and we are only just getting started!
