20 years of experience

I have been a therapist for over 17 years, and have had the privilege to serve a very wide demographic of individuals and groups as an owner of a private practice as well as executive coach. While an owner of a private practice, I trained in many areas of specialty, so I could provide the best quality therapy for anyone that was introduced to our clinic, and especially those that my associate therapists were not trained to serve and help. My areas of specialties include PTSD, Sexual Abuse Recovery, Depression, Anxiety, Couples Therapy and Relationship Issues, Grief and Loss, Sexual Issues and Dysfunction, Addiction Issues, Personality and Mood Disorders, Self-harm and Eating Disorders, Spiritual Issues, Addiction, Mediation, Career Counseling and Life Coaching. I thoroughly enjoy what I do, and consider it a privilege to walk alongside someone through sometimes the most difficult time in their life. It is an honor to be trusted to encourage and provide tools to help people transform their lives. Both reactive therapy (helping people recover and thrive in life) and proactive coaching (helping people achieve their goals) are enjoyable for me, so no matter what your goals are, if you feel I am a fit for you, I will do my best to help you achieve those goals as quickly as possible. I work from a brief therapy model, but will extend the treatment plan as agreed and needed if other issues present. I look forward to meeting you and helping you move forward from a place of feeling "stuck" to achieving wellness. Let's get started!

Welcome! My name is Christie Jacobus and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Board approved Supervisor (LPC-S) in the state of Texas. I have been a therapist for over 12 years serving a variety of clients in both public agencies and private practice. I have experience with individuals, families, and groups experiencing challenges related to relationship and family concerns, parenting issues, and career conflicts. Additionally, I have over 30 years of experience as a Registered Nurse and I understand the correlation between physical and emotional health, and I have worked with many clients to improve their health and wellness. I also have experience working with domestic violence, physical and emotional trauma. I love working with people and my approach to counseling is to work together to help clients grow and become the best version of themselves. I use a variety of skills and interventions based on cognitive behavioral, client centered and solution -based therapies. Since each client is unique, we will collaborate to meet the needs and goals of the person. I think every individual is entitled to compassion, dignity and respect. Open and honest communication in a warm non threatening environment is key to our success. It can be difficult to ask for help and finding the right fit for a counselor is very important. I wish you success on having a more healthy and vibrant life and if I can be of assistance, I welcome the opportunity to share the journey. Thank you

When struggling in silence is considered one of your superpowers, seeking support can be filled with conflicting emotions. The emerging “self-care”, “fill your cup first” way of life can be in direct opposition with your culture’s longstanding pillars of “just work harder” and “just pray harder”. So, first of all, kudos to you for making moves toward adding necessary supports to the strengths that have kept you thus far. I believe that you are an expert in your own life, even if you don’t always use that expertise effectively. I believe it is my job to provide you the time and space to take an honest look at your desired path and the supports to identify the strengths you possess to set you on it. At times, the people closest you may be offering the most loving support that they have to give. But they are just that, too close. This professional counseling relationship will provide a space to voice feelings, thoughts, and even actions that you may not be ready to share with someone whose well-being is so closely tied to your own. I am currently accepting new clients for live virtual sessions (teletherapy with video), including messaging. Life’s demands can keep us going well into the night, so I offered scheduling between the hours of 10am-10pm (as available). I understand that for some of us, being thrown into this virtual reality over the past couple of years can still be somewhat unsettling for services such as these. I assure you that I am definitely a real person and a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in the state of Texas, and I will really be the person on the line with you. I started counseling as a graduate student in 2008 in the field of alcohol & drug abuse. Since then, I have had the opportunity to serve individuals, couples, families, and children with a myriad of concerns. As a counselor, I will serve as a supportive professional working with you, not on you.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Haltom City 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 Haltom City 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 Haltom City 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 Haltom City, 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?

You can also try a Haltom City 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 Haltom City 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.

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 Haltom City 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 Haltom City 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 Haltom City, 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.

Haltom City 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.
