I am a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) in Texas with over twenty-eight years of experience helping children, adolescents, and adults. I am a native Texan, horsewoman, and author. I grew up in small towns in Texas and understand well the strengths and challenges of growing up and living under a microscope. For most of my career, I have helped people overcome unspeakable trauma. I believe it takes enormous courage to look at what frightens us or makes us uncomfortable. Growth happens in times of uncertainty when we are slightly outside our comfort zone. If we are too far outside our comfort zone, our survival strategies kick in to protect us, and we cannot grow. All our focus and energy is on keeping us alive and safe in those moments. When we work together, it will be vital for you to communicate what is happening with and inside of you, so our work doesn't push you into the survival zone. It is vital that you feel emotionally safe in your relationship with me, to be who you are, and to say what you need to say. I will listen deeply and respect your values, beliefs, and life experiences. I will support and challenge you to help you make the changes you seek in your life. You have the strength you need to grow and meet those challenges; you just need a little help along the way. I look forward to meeting you and helping you make the life you want!

When you're tired or hurting and want to make some healthy changes, we need to talk. One of the comments I often hear from clients is "You make me think!" as they find new ways of dealing with their problems. Hello, I'm Jeffrey. I'm a licensed therapist who's spent 40+ years helping people through their toughest challenges. My work has been in a variety of settings including in-patient hospitals, halfway houses, homeless shelters, school counseling offices, college classrooms, church counseling, foster care homes and outpatient clinics. Those experiences give me a broad and deep perspective on the struggles people go through. In my own life, having grown up in a blended family, I am personally familiar with all the drama that brings. I have been married for over 35 years to the same woman and have three wonderful sons, who were homeschooled. We have also provided care for a parent with dementia. These experiences give me insights and understanding into the challenges families and individuals face. I make extensive use of psychodynamic techniques and cognitive behavioral therapy approaches. From grief, guilt, difficulty coping and relationship issues, to recovering from infidelity and addiction- if you're looking for help with your struggles like these, I want to talk with you first! I have always been passionate about helping people with the challenges they face in life. I want to see you succeed and improve your life. I've worked with clients across a wide range of concerns including low self-esteem, discouragement, relationship issues, codependency, recovering from infidelity and addiction but also career challenges or caregiving for elderly parents. There are times you may feel overwhelmed and unable to handle things on your terms - that's when it can be helpful to learn new ways of handling them! Reach out today if any of these topics resonate for you; there is hope available here at my practice now more than ever before! I am committed to providing compassionate care tailored specifically around each individual's needs while working collaboratively as partners toward addressing their goals together. Whether it's addiction, enabling, communication, relationship, or depression-related issues, working together will help you through them. I aim to provide a safe, supportive place where you can be yourself and work on your goals. I listen carefully to clients, take the time needed to understand their situation, and develop thoughtful ways of helping them address what they need in their lives. I believe that everyone has untapped strengths that can help them recover from difficulties or achieve the goals of their life. I am also a Certified Mental Health & Nutrition Clinical Specialist (CMNCS) and Farm Response Certified. You can also find some of my articles on Medium ( https://medium.com/@RestoreTheFamily ) .

Hello, thank you for considering me to assist you in whatever journey life has brought you. Yes, a journey. Challenges are experiences that get us to the next stage of our personal development. However we should never feel like we have to go there alone. I completed the Master's in Social Work program with a minor in Alcohol and Other Drugs. Within about two years of graduating, I became clinically licensed in New Mexico and the next year in Texas. I have 15 years of experience in individual, marital, family, and group therapy. Much of my work time has been with military personnel and their families. This clinical experience exposed me to working with many people from all over the world and with a variety of cultural backgrounds. Approaches in treatment are a combination of strengths-based, cognitive behavioral therapy, relationship dynamic approaches, motivational interviewing, solution focused therapy, addiction issues, and more. Applying a variety of approaches in treatment are necessary because no therapy is suitable for how dynamic we are as human beings. I apply a holistic approach with cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and person in environment approaches. The goal of treatment is to show clients they had the skills and internal resources to meet their personal goals. It is just at times we need to do it in a non-judgmental environment.

Hello. Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about me. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor. I believe while I am an expert in my field, you are the expert of your life. I view counseling as an opportunity to walk side by side with my clients, and offer them support and skills while dealing with life challenges. I take a person centered and solution focused approach. I utilize techniques from Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI). You may not have been responsible for the things that have happened in your life. You are responsible for how you respond to those things from this day forward! You have made the first step in seeking help and I would be honored to join you in your journey. A little more about me... I earned my Bachelor's degree in Rehabilitation Studies in 2008 and began working in addiction counseling in 2009. I have worked in a variety of settings including adult and juvenile criminal justice institutions, adult residential centers, and running an addiction recovery program in a homeless shelter for women and children. I have worked with the family and criminal court systems to help people along their individualized recovery journey. In 2018 I earned my Masters of Arts in Integrated Recovery and Co-Occurring Disorders and began working towards earning my independent LPC. I have extensive history in both addiction and trauma counseling and view it as a privilege when a client chooses to share their story with me.

Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, marriage, family issues, or other emotional challenges, feel proud that you have begun your search to find the mental health care services that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Fayetteville. 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 Fayetteville, 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 Fayetteville 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 Fayetteville area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Fayetteville 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 Fayetteville 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 Fayetteville 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 BetterHelp or clinicians 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).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Fayetteville, Texas 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 Fayetteville 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 Fayetteville 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 Fayetteville 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 Fayetteville 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 Fayetteville 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 TX, 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 78940 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 Fayetteville 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 Fayetteville 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 Fayetteville, 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.

Fayetteville 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.
