Hello. My name is Jeff Bennett. Thank you for reviewing my profile. I care. I believe I can help you. One reason I believe that is because of consistent positive feedback by the diverse many who I counsel in person. I have over 25 years of experience in face to face counsel as a professional therapist. Now I have expanded my availability online with Chat, LiveChat, Phone and Video. As you will read, I am available, present, comfortable, and received well professionally and personally in various settings and communities with diverse populations. Life is indeed challenging. I am learning from experience how important it is to regularly include support from wise and proven counselors. Therefore I dedicate extensive time and effort toward my heart's desire of being the best individual and professional psychotherapist I can be. I believe one of my gifts and purpose in life is to help others. To strengthen my skills toward my purpose, I seek and receive education and extensive rigorous training and supervision. Okay... honestly... some options I entered into very conflicted and begrudgingly. Then I continued to show much resistance. Eventually and not unusually, I discovered benefit and fruit and practicality, even from those teachings I first considered unredeemable. So now I am learning to be more open and embrace certain thoughts and teachings what I once judged and rejected. I find this also applies true for life experiences and events. Freshly reconsidering and contemplating, often through my daily meditating, I find and glean many unexpected beautiful gems, even from life memories of decades ago. Odd how much of life and events unfold. Very unpredictable. Most of those experiences of growth were very humbling for me. For the most part, these experiences of learning still are humbling as I continue to develop and become. These growth opportunities are not just from formal teachers. It seems there are growth opportunities from everyone I meet, and every event I experience. Therefore, if you discern to schedule with me, in our exchanges together, I too will very likely be learning along side you. I intentionally as well as serendipitously benefit from an assortment of active steps to better develop my inner resources and therapeutic skills. This includes personally receiving counsel from professional therapists. Yes. I benefit from that too. I wasn't just born with these skills. LOL. While there may be individuals around each and all of us that could and do help us in multiple ways, I believe everyone would still benefit at least from some counsel through a professional. It continues to be a great help for me. Without exception. I am confident in saying that the benefits from any and all counsel will nurture a continuous unfolding of life-long lasting positive and diverse outcomes. In my life's quest for healing, betterment and enrichment, I even spent time in a seminary. But don't worry. I definitely know that I am not 'holier than thou'. I believe the experience gave me something uniquely good, that for me, I was not able to find elsewhere. Again, I learned much there, and from many resources beyond the extensive readings required in that setting. FYI, I am cisgender and an ally and stand proud. My professional history has given me an opportunity of meeting many individuals with varying and diverse lifestyles, cultures, beliefs, ages, politics, faiths, experiences and challenges. For example, I have worked with many individuals who are committed to a 12 step program. These individuals are those who strive for recovery due not just to substance addiction, but also from events, traumas, relationships, childhood experiences, chemical imbalances and behavior challenges. I also have worked with individuals presented with dual (two together) diagnosis such as with chemical imbalances with a substance addiction, or depression along with anxiety issues. My professional experience lead me also to many diverse places. These places include general as well as specialized inpatient psychiatric hospitals. One psychiatric hospital specializes in 'forensic' patients, those who are waiting to stand trial for felony charges but deemed by a judge to be mentally incompetent to stand trial. I worked with the treatment team to help the individual be mentally competent to stand trial. I served in many hospitals as a chaplain. I served on a military base for those active duty military and their families as a Military Family and Life Consultant. I have accepted special assignments. These assignments involve debriefing individuals and groups on location in the community and workplaces when criminal, tragic, violent, accidental, or hate driven events happen. If you even contemplate a little that you might benefit from counsel in one form or another, I encourage you to somehow find it within yourself to take courageous steps and secure professional counsel. Secure that support you need to take those steps. Enjoy unique experiences in your life that you believe will help you personally grow within yourself and relationships, in your mental, spiritual, and emotional wellbeing and healings, as well as toward your professional development. Then I encourage you to share liberally with others in opportune moments from your own gleaning experiences. If you consider that I might be part of your quest for betterment and enriched sense of self, relationships, healing and living, then I am honored. Please subscribe. Select my name as your professional counselor. Begin chat immediately. Additionally included in your subscription is your ability to self schedule private one on one LiveChat, phone or video sessions.

Live with kind purposeful intention and congeniality even within yourself. Live with daily self care, perhaps an even simpler life, and with inner peace. I care. Jeff

I dedicate myself to create a safe, trusting space where genuine connection can be built up. Relationship depth nurtures meaningful changes and personal growth. I have genuine interest in people’s growing history and the way of their being. Exploring one’s potentials, strengths, and aspirations is core to heal trauma and rebuild a life with quality. I utilize EMDR and Internal Family System to assist clients in gaining wholistic view and deep understanding about their own emotions, thoughts, and past experiences. To trust the process and be patient with oneself will eventually lead to deep healing. I highly value the importance of our bodies in therapy. Considering the cultural influence, many people express or feel emotions almost only through their body reactions. Trauma can make profound impact on one’s body but usually people overlook the meaning of their physical discomfort. It can be confusing or even scary to discover the message that our body send to us for the first time. And I would love to assist my clients to feel confident and comfortable to begin the trip. Personally, I love to make art with my own hands. I enjoy playing with paper and cotton loops. Macrame and paper rose are two major projects I am doing recently. Watercolor, painting, and tie-dye are always interesting. Art teaches me how to be patient with the process and how smalls steps make big differences. Creating beauty build resilience. I like to have deep conversations within myself and with loved ones. Practicing therapeutic techniques to myself is a lot of fun and always beneficial. I am passionate about my life, and I believe the way to cherish life is to be grateful and remember worthy moments. To laugh and be “silly” with my 7 years old daughter is a happy daily routine! 我是一名出生和成长在大陆的华人咨询师,毕业于北德州大学并取得心理咨询硕士学位。我有七年的心理咨询从业经验,通常为成人和青少年做个人咨询。我接受了EMDR和家庭系统疗法(IFS)的培训,并作为我主要的咨询方式。 我专长于创伤治疗,家庭关系,抑郁和焦虑。在我的成长环境中,心理健康一直是华人家庭难以接受和回避的话题。我们的精神痛苦通常只能通过身体病痛去表达,经常被压抑,或者恢复地十分缓慢。每一个愿意尝试心理咨询的华人,在鼓足勇气的同时,一定也有很多怀疑和犹豫。将自己最深的感受和最私人的经历向咨询师讲述出来,通常不会被我们的文化和身边人所鼓励,这其中巨大的不确定性和精神上可能会经历的风险,甚至可以比作一场豪赌。与此同时,我也坚信每一个华人和他们身后家庭成员的坚韧,勇气,和恢复力。我相信每个人都有与生俱来的智慧,去克服人生道路上的艰辛,去追求并成为理想的自己。 我愿意倾听并陪伴你,用最真诚的心意去理解你的经历和处境,不仅仅是了解你的痛苦和问题,我愿意了解更多你的感受和你的经历。治疗的体验对每一个人来说都是独特的,不论是对咨询师还是对于来访。我曾经和很多人一起创造并见证治疗带来的感动和力量,我也期待和你一起创造全新的经历。

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a South Mountain 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.

South Mountain 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 South Mountain therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

A South Mountain 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.

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

Before seeing your South Mountain 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 South Mountain.

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 South Mountain 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 South Mountain 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 South Mountain, 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.

South Mountain 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.
