Hello and Welcome! Are you tired of trying to resolve problems and issues life has thrown at you, tired of friends and family offering advice or struggling alone with things that seem overwhelming? The reason I became a social worker and progressed to being a therapist is because of my own life experiences. I joined the military out of high school to escape. After three years I came back to the same places and people that I had run away from. I enrolled in college and started counseling with a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) who changed my life.

Having a hard time selecting a mental health professional in Jackson? (How we can help)

Finding the right therapist can feel intimidating, but there are simple ways to narrow down your search for the Jackson area; especially when you're having a hard time trying to find therapists accepting new clients.
 
First, research what type of therapy you’d like to pursue BEFORE trying to find a therapist or psychologist. Maybe that’s psychodynamic, cognitive behavior therapy, group therapy, marriage and family therapy, or couple’s therapy; just search 'therapist near me in Jackson' and find the one that is right for your needs. Next consider whether the gender of your therapist matters, the types of therapy they're most experienced with, and then finally choose a therapist located near you in the city of Jackson, or elsewhere in the Madison county or state of Tennessee.
 
Mental health professionals that have a private practice or provide therapy services for professional counseling can help improve healthy relationships and communication skills whether that be working through life's obstacles and life issues in couples counseling, changing negative thinking patterns, or just providing a listening ear. Verified Jackson therapists can provide licensed marriage counseling, compassionate counseling, tailor to individual needs (such as discussing healing, children, or other adults), and will help create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor. Verified Jackson counselors help adults with healing (from physical ailments such as chronic pain, as well as mental illness).


What is the cost difference between conventional therapy and working with one of our listed therapists above?

The United States has many therapists who are comfortable charging $200 or more per session, and in some instances you might find that the average price of a therapy session in Jackson, TN ranges from $85-$150.
 
Some therapists in the state of Tennessee will work on a sliding scale, meaning they’ll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With our therapists serving both the city of Jackson and elsewhere throughout the state of Tennessee, you can expect significantly more affordable options with sessions ranging from $60 to $90 per week (billed every 4 weeks).


Did you know our therapists are not limited to in-person visits?

Online therapists, including all those listed above (all of which are in the United States) able to work with people like you in or around Jackson offer creative forms of communication to help people like you receive the best type of treatment for your needs.
 
Whether that’s via in-app messaging with your therapist, video sessions where you see you one another and talk about your problems, live chat or phone sessions, you and your therapist will find the best way to address your mental health challenges in online therapy. You can work through various symptoms, disorders or condition, and even get a diagnosis from the comfort of your own home. 
 
So if you're dealing with things like relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy, you want to work with one of our experienced cognitive behavioral therapists (specializing in behavioral health), assistance with eating disorders, or support with other common mental health issues (like work stress management, anxiety, depression, grief, etc)... take a look at our available therapists above and find a individual or marriage and family therapist that is right for you.
 
Counseling services, wellness services, online therapy, relationship counseling, and individual counseling through a licensed therapist can help treat postpartum depression, feeling lost or feeling stuck, difficult relationships, and helping people live their best lives. If you're looking for a therapist, Jackson has many professionals who provide client centered individual counseling both in person and through online therapy. Gain more insight into in your life than you would through an eclectic approach or motivational interviewing. In Jackson, therapy is easily accessible and just a click away. A clinical psychologist, licensed psychologist, or board approved supervisor can help you develop new coping strategies through modern therapy, therapeutic services, and a holistic approach.


How to know if therapy is right for you?

One of the rewarding aspects of working with a therapist is that they are listening to your feelings. Our friends and loved ones often hear us, but they may have a hard time providing objective guidance in the way a therapist can; which can be extremely valuable due to the fact that many therapists have experience helping others through similar difficult times.

A therapist wants to support you toward a healthier emotional state, no matter what you're dealing with (including behavioral health concerns, grief, anxiety, depression or stress). While helping to develop healthier emotions, another benefit of therapy is you have a safe space to discuss problems that you may be hesitant to talk about with people who you see everyday.

Many people have sensitive topics to discuss; possibly an addiction or an issue with their relationship that they’re ashamed to speak about with their friends and/or partner. A Jackson therapist can help you confront these kinds of issues and find ways to face them and heal.

With more than 67005 people in the city of Jackson, TN finding a therapist can be both costly and hard to do. Our goal with the list of therapists shown above is to get you the support you need.

Some other commonly asked questions can be found below:

How do I know I should get a therapist?
 
Modern therapy and psychotherapy have many benefits, regardless of the resources you may or may not have, or a service you have received in the past. The connection between brain, body and behavior is what effects everything in your life and therapy can help you see results in improving your attention and reaction to a specific thing. Whether it be someone wanting to learn more about their own mind and patterns, or specific situations in terms of well-being and friend struggles, searching for a 'therapist near me' or a 'therapist near Jackson' can help you find a counselor near you or the closest locator to any counselors and psychiatrists. 
 
How much does a therapist cost?
 
Therapist prices differ, and one good way to learn more is by looking up "therapists around me" or "Jackson's therapists" to learn about prices in your city or state, and who takes health insurance. You can also specify for a male or female counselor, or anything specific you're looking for in regards to money and therapy options and what might be an eco-friendly option.
 
How do I see a therapist for the first time?
 
One great way to prep for your first therapy session is by reading a lot of information on therapy-- articles by an author or experts on therapy can help you study some tips or a specific example of what to pay attention to in your first appointment. In fact, one great example of a case of someone with a great level of expertise who has written about therapy is the book Maybe You Should Talk to Someone by Lori Gottlieb. Learning about the tools to tackle life challenges and the importance of putting in the effort in therapy sessions will help you make the most of the opportunity and potential self-discovery journey.
 
Should I go to therapy if I feel fine?
 
While you may look fine on the outside or through your instagram, that doesn't always mean we feel fine 100% of the time. A therapist can help you gain power over your life and emotions and be a helping hand and trusted source while you navigate day-to-day experiences and small growth opportunities. Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies can help you improve your self-esteem, work through values and relationships (such as with your parents), and overall gain a better sense of the world and how you see it. The success you may find through therapy is dependent on your process, if you are in-office or out-of-office, as well as who your provider is, what medication you are on, what fear you have, etc.
 
People also go to therapy for very specific things such as bullying, getting diagnosed with autism, wanting to learn mindfulness, having a specific nature or "spirit" they want to nurture and work on, trouble with office workers, phobia of doctors, and any other principles they are interesting in working through.
 
Is crying in therapy a breakthrough?
 
While for some crying in therapy might not be the normal, for others who perhaps experience mood disorders or even schizophrenia, crying could be a natural occurrence in each session. The groups you are in, the adolescents memories and experiences you've had, and the education you've received can all play a role into your emotions and emotional state throughout therapy.
 
Are therapists worth it?
 
We are all on a different path with our life, as each human is unique in the advice they want (or don't want) in areas of their life. Therapists, however, have the ability to help you find your potential through re-training your mind through methods such as CBT, or you can see a SEP (Somatic Experiencing Professional). For example, a number of patients who are battling sleep insomnia, difficulty with medications, troublesome behaviors, or overuse of drugs or alcohol have found help for their disorder through online therapy and telehealth. Many studies outline the risk in addition to the reward of seeing providers and specialists virtually, and overall the reviews show that the availability and areas of expertise from online therapists make it feel like they are on your team, and are a positive addition to your life.
 
Do therapists judge you?
 
The separation and boundaries between you and a therapist make it so that therapists are never there to judge you-- they are there to help you work through coping mechanisms, self-understanding, various stresses, and how your beliefs might impact your decisions and lifestyle. 
 
How much does a therapist cost near Jackson, Tennessee?
 
Each therapist might differ per state, but BetterHelp offers therapy throughout the US in many cities- including, but not limited to: New York, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, San Diego, Philadelphia, Miami, Chicago, Boston, Phoenix, Baltimore, Indianapolis, Las Vegas, Washington, DC, Tampa, League City, Seattle, Detroit, Orlando, Atlanta, and even University of Houston. You can also search states by their state code (such as MD or AZ) to find more on specific cities in the state. Having access to clinical psychology over zoom can open doors to another modality, such as in-app messaging. The scale of price and plan may differ with each area code, but BetterHelp's main belief is that therapy should be accessible wherever, whenever.
