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! I know you are tired of doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. You want to self regulate in order to get control of your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. 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.

4 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I graduated with my undergraduate degree in psychology and my master’s degree in professional counseling, both from Lindenwood University. In my professional career, prior to being a therapist, I worked in the fields of vocational rehabilitation, pain management, drug and alcohol addiction, and applied behavior analysis. My practicum for my Master’s degree was completed at Northwest High School, where I held group sessions for at-risk youth and provided individual crisis counseling to students. I was a professor of undergraduate introductory psychology at Jefferson College and continue to see clients through my private practice. Our problems, concerns and struggles in life often cannot be reduced to a simple diagnosis. As human beings navigating a constantly evolving and sometimes difficult world, we are accumulations of our experiences, patterns, skills, and desires. We sometimes need to enhance our abilities to cope or gain insight through seeing a different perspective, but we all have the innate ability to grow and heal ourselves. As a therapist, my goal is to assist you in attaining your desired outcomes and reaching a point of contentment in your life. I work with a variety of individuals in an effort to help them sort through their thoughts, identify their feelings, and honor their present experience. I utilize an eclectic approach to therapy, incorporating person-centered and solution-focused models, as well as Gestalt’s techniques, and ACT to empower and challenge my clients to reach their goals. While the needs that I see are varied, acceptance, understanding, and intentional focus on growth make my approach universally applicable. I hope that my studies and passion can help you on your journey to attain the calm, light, and fulfilling life we all work for and deserve. Take care and be well!

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Newtonia 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 Newtonia due to a higher cost of living.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Newtonia?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Newtonia 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.

Newtonia 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 Newtonia 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 Newtonia 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.

With a lot of people in MO, therapists 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 64853 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Newtonia counselor?

Before seeing your Newtonia 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 Newtonia.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy 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 Newtonia 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 Newtonia 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 with a therapist 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 therapist 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 Newtonia, Missouri 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.

Newtonia 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 during telehealth appointments?

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.
