With the stress of daily living, and the life transitions that can occur at any time, many people can use the support of therapy at some point or another. When it comes to finding a therapist, Beaumont, TX can offer a wider variety of choice than surrounding small town or rural areas, but even in a city it isn’t necessarily easy to find the right kind of counseling services. 

For one thing, in clinical mental health there are a variety of evidence-based approaches, and which counseling approach to use can depend on the challenges being addressed. Although there may be psychiatry services nearby, what you need specifically may not necessarily be accessible or available. Psychiatric nurse practitioners that work in a neighborhood clinic may be available to manage medication or treat past trauma, but are not likely to work with an individual who is looking for support in setting life goals or looking for guidance in building self-esteem for a fulfilled life. 

That’s where online therapy through a platform like BetterHelp can be beneficial. BetterHelp offers access to over 30,000 professionals in the mental health field that offer counseling services in a variety of specialties, and with expertise in diverse populations. By filling out an online questionnaire, BetterHelp will match you with a therapist that meets your individual needs. And because it can be essential to success to have a strong rapport with your practitioner, if you need to change therapists you can do so at no additional cost. 

Online therapy can also be a convenient solution for many busy professionals, parents, and students. Online sessions fit easily into any schedule, and with video chat, phone, and text messaging options you can talk to your therapist from the comfort of your own home or office. 

Better mental health can be a factor in living a healthy and fulfilled life. If you live in the Beaumont area and have been thinking about therapy for any reason, whether to overcome trauma, heal relationships, or to explore self-actualization, contact BetterHelp to get started on your mental wellness journey.

23 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Life is ever changing that we can be sure of! Hello, my name is Jackie and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Anger Resolution Therapist. I have a Masters of Science Degree in Social Work from the University of Texas. I have been helping people for over 20 years navigating through life's changes in the DFW area. Working with older teens and adults deal with depression, anxiety, anger, relationship challenges, grief and loss. I have helped families address a range of concerns that revolved around parenting issues, domestic violence, child abuse/neglect, substance abuse, self-esteem, and more. My approach to therapy is client centered. My style is warm and engaging. I believe in the client taking an active part in the direction and depth of their therapeutic process. I draw on multiple treatment modalities to guide clients to their treatment goals including: • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) - I assist clients in exploring the dynamic between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to aid in discovering dysfunctional thought patterns which can lead to mood disorders and self-destructive behaviors. • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) - I teach and support clients in these skills: mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and emotion regulation. • Solution-Focused Therapy - brief therapy aimed at focusing on solutions rather than problems. • Rational Emotive Therapy - Challenging irrational beliefs that lead to psychological distress. Self esteem is not static, it is ever changing by the decisions we make each and every day. Do you need help making better decisions, or someone to empower you? I check my messages daily but it may take 2-4 days for me to digest your information and form a well thought out response. I prefer video calls because I get the most successful sessions and more interaction from them, but I will interact using the telecalls and messaging sessions, too. I require the standard 24 hours notice of cancellation of appointments. Thank You, Jackie Parker, LCSW-CART I look forward to working with you!

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Beaumont. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. 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 Beaumont, 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 in the Beaumont region and in the state of Texas. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Beaumont or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Beaumont 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 Beaumont 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 Beaumont may not take health insurance, some in the state of Texas 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 Texas you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

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

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

Beaumont 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 Beaumont 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 Beaumont 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 TX, therapists may be booked out with clients.

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

Before seeing your Beaumont 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 Beaumont.

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 Beaumont 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 Beaumont 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 Beaumont, Texas 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.

Beaumont 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.
