Hi, I hope you are well or soon will be. My name is Mr. Antimoore Jackson. I would like to share with you a little about my background. I am a doctorate (PhD) educated psychotherapist, dual credentialed as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Licensed Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor (LADAC) with over 38 years in the counseling field. The big benefit of these years is that I know a lot about helping people, period! Because of my many years of experience, I’ve had a unique opportunity to work directly with a broad range of individuals and a diverse population of people in various clinical settings. For example, I’ve worked extensively with child and adolescent clients, including the affluent and also those in foster care or with histories of delinquency; I’ve worked with young adults in prison and/or caught up in the criminal justice system; I’ve worked with professionals such as lawyers, teachers, and actually other therapists in denial about their alcohol and drug problem. This vast experience means that I am usually able to quickly assess root causes of problems and provide thorough and effective solutions. I am an excellent fit for any racial or ethnic group, any faith group, the LGBTQ community, youth and teens, couples struggling with marriage or relationship conflicts, and executives dealing with career or life issues. I’ve worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, work related conflict, teens and youth adjustment issues, and alcohol and drug abuse, including DWIs. I also help people who have experienced physical and sexual trauma or emotional abuse and neglect. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. However, I am direct and totally honest in my interaction with persons I help in counseling. I am very knowledgeable about a multitude of counseling models such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling, and the Afrocentric perspective. I will tailor an approach and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. You know, it takes courage to seek help for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and help empower you. I have proven experience. I look forward to working with you! Dr. Antimoore Hugh Jackson

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas with over 9 years of counseling experience and 20+ years of mental health experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, psychosis, attention, substance abuse, and trauma. My counseling style is gentle and non-directive while assisting clients to develop their own paths to positive changes in their lives. I will not chastise or talk down to clients; however, I will challenge their irrational thoughts and inconsistencies, but in a non-confrontational manner that does not leave the client thinking he or she is attacked. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, client centered, humanistic, and rational-emotive therapy to facilitate self-awareness so the client is empowered to change. I believe treating a person is more important than treating a diagnosis which allows me to listen to the client’s subjective concerns. The majority of people will work towards better emotional health, but often they do not know how to do that. If you are ready to begin a journey to feeling better about yourself and life, I am ready to guide and support you.

I am a licensed certified social worker (LCSW) in Arkansas with over 30 years of experience working with people from 8-80 from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures. I congratulate you for taking this first step toward improving your life and well being. I hope to have the privilege of walking with you on a journey to discover more about yourself and how you interact with the world. Rather than list a lot of therapeutic models I use, I think it is more important to tell you that I believe it is important for a therapist to have the ability to be 100% present when interacting with you, have great listening skills, and to be caring, sensitive and non-judgmental. I believe that this describes how you will feel about how I will work with you as your therapist. We will work together to identify your goals and make plans for you to meet them. I will sometimes have gentle suggestions and other times ask you questions to help you discover the direction to take on your own.

Treat yourself to finding a healthy balance and fulfilment in your life...you DESERVE your best self! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has been licensed in Arkansas for the past 15 years. My current focus is working with adults and older adults who are working through the grief process, whether they are overwhelmed with a loved one's death or illness, a loss of a relationship, struggling with depression/anxiety or any other diagnosis. I am here to help you explore your thoughts and feelings, and assist you in finding balance in your "upside down" world. It's about finding what is right for you, not what is right for everyone around you.

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 Diaz, 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 Diaz 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.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Diaz 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 Diaz 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 Diaz may not take health insurance, some in the state of Arkansas 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 Arkansas 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 Diaz, Arkansas 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 Diaz 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 Diaz 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 Diaz 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 Diaz 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 Diaz 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 AR, 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 72043 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 Diaz 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 Diaz 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 Diaz, Arkansas 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.

Diaz 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.
