Hello. I have a passion for learning about, discussing and treating symptoms concerning stress and emotional dysregulation of anger, depression, and anxiety often associated with attachment/abandonment wounds that create challenges in relationships with oneself and others. My name is Beverly Vanover and I received my Master’s of Science Degree in Community Counseling from John Brown University. My experience in the field of mental health includes working in community mental health at hospitals, schools and day treatment. I have experience facilitating mental health and 12-step program groups for the community, as well as in the institutional setting. I am a board-certified telemental health counselor (BC-TMH), certified clinical trauma professional (CCTP) and a nationally certified counselor (NCC). I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Arkansas (TA-technology assisted), Missouri, Colorado and Texas. I have a passion for learning about, discussing and treating emotional dysregulation and symptoms of anger, depression, and anxiety often associated with attachment/abandonment wounds that create fear of intimacy and relationship problems. Please note that my clients will need to be located physically in either Arkansas, Missouri, Colorado or Texas at the time of live sessions and when counseling occurs. I want my clients to be partners in their healing. I want them to understand how powerful their minds are - how mind and body are connected. Healing of emotions related to relationships like anger, anxiety and depression, life transitions, lack of fulfillment or adjustment to changes are possible. We will get through this together. You want to be HEARD- I get it. You want to find your voice - I know that. If it is important to you, it is important to me!

People notice my passion for working to help them heal, feel heard, achieve goals and live the life they want to be living. I strongly relate to the term "wounded" healer so that means that I am compassionate FOR and empathic TO your needs. Contact me to schedule an appointment.

I believe change is never easy or simple, but it’s worth it. It can be painful and heart-breaking at times, but it’s through digging into those hurt places that we truly find healing. I want you to move toward self-acceptance and being able to know your worth is not defined by what others or society believes is true. I am passionate about areas such as self-acceptance, self-esteem, body image, eating disorders, trauma, anxiety, and ADHD. I am a hardcore empath who enjoys helping other empaths embrace their gift and share their sensitivity with the world. I offer proven and evidenced based treatments that will help you get back to your desired objective. I am currently working toward my eating disorders certification (CEDS) through iadep, am trained in brainspotting, and am working toward my ADHD-CCDP certification. I am just a fellow human like you. It is my desire to help you in any way I can. I realize how privileged I am to have a glimpse into others’ inner lives and I consider it as such. I know taking this first step is difficult, but I am here to be your cheerleader along the way.

Hi! My name is Rebecca. I started working in the mental health field 27 years ago and have spent the last 16 of them providing individual, family, and group therapy. I have an undergraduate degree in Sociology and Criminology and a Master of Social Work degree. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Missouri, a Licensed Certified Social Worker in Arkansas and have extensive experience working in residential treatment, private practice, clinic, and hospital settings. I have worked closely with children and adolescents in the foster care system, persons on parole from federal prison, and college students as well as persons recovering from traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and strokes. The majority of my experience has been working with adults with a variety of mental health and substance abuse issues. For the last five years I have been an outpatient therapist at a community mental health center assisting people to better manage depression, anxiety, abuse and trauma, anger, relational issues, and coping with life changes. I always say becoming a therapist is what I was meant to do as I did not set out toward this path but it found me and drew me to it. I have an easy and approachable style with clients and have been told I am easy to talk to. When a client is speaking with me it is a no-judgement zone. I practice unconditional acceptance of clients the way they are as well as how they want to be. I believe you are the expert on you and my job is to help you make the changes you want to make so you can get to where you want to be.

As a clinical social worker, I’ve had the honor of helping adults navigate and transform their painful struggles for over 26 years. My philosophy is that you are the expert at navigating your own life, and my role as a therapist is to guide you through the process of dropping below the surface, thinking a little deeper and finding the center of the patterns that result in being stuck. I create a safe space for this work by listening without judgment, and responding with gentle feedback from a place of unconditional positive regard. As you regain trust in your own inner wisdom and strength, we can further work together to devise personal strategies for letting go of patterns and habits that no longer serve you. This will allow you to heal old wounds and make the lasting changes you need to be more productive and focused in your life and relationships.

28 years of experience as a therapist

As a Social Worker (SW), I have 25 years experience. Prior to that, I wore the badge of a policeman for 16 years. As a SW’er, I have worked with families, K-12 kids and adolescents with pending legal issues. The K-12 kids primarily had ADHD, childhood trauma and oppositional attitudes/behaviors. I also worked with all branches of the military, dealing primarily with soldiers and their families who were involved in domestic violence (DV) incidents. Many of these were special forces and green beret soldiers who experienced Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) related to their combat experiences. I also worked for 4 years in in-inpatient psychiatric settings. Before working in clinical settings, I supervised three emergency receiving homes and maintained a counseling office supported by the state’s Baptist Convention. As far as counseling techniques, that totally depends on the particular need and the mental condition of the client. I like using cognitive-behavioral therapy CBT) to evaluate cognitive distortions of the client and help them to adjust and better cope with their environment. With stronger clients, I won’t hesitate to use Gestalt Therapy to challenge or confront a them. As needed, I also employ grief and relaxation therapies. Finally, it my viewpoint that most people seek counseling to help them find peace in their lives. My goal is always to help the client gain a sense of peace, which comes from lessening their internal storms.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Keiser 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 Keiser 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 Keiser 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 a BetterHelp therapist 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 Keiser, 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 or medication as treatment, or perform psychological assessments and other psychiatric services.

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, post traumatic stress disorder, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Keiser 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.

You can also try a Keiser 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 Keiser 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.

Keiser therapists 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 Keiser 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 Keiser 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 psychotherapist.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Keiser 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 while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Keiser.

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 from a therapist. A Keiser 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 with a counselor 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 that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy with a licensed counselor 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 Keiser, 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.

Keiser 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.
