It's not about me, it's about you becoming the best you that you can be, overcoming whatever has been holding you back, and pursuing your dreams. If you're really interested in me though... I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) with 29 years of experience in social services (14 years as an LPC), find fulfillment in helping others to become fulfilled, am a happily married father of two (boy and a girl), enjoy playing music, am a lifelong learner, and have benefited from the exposure gained by traveling the world. My career has been varied and broad. I have helped young people find their path, adults define their purpose, and older souls examine transitions. My professional practice has included extensive experience treating people with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, personality disorders, IDD (intellectual and developmental disabilities), TBI (traumatic brain injuries) and other conditions; but more importantly, I am here to listen! No matter where a person is in life, my goal is to help those that I serve to fulfill their potential! I base my practice on an integrative approach which uses tools drawn from sources such as Motivational Interviewing, CBT, REBT, Multi-Modal Therapy, Mindfulness, and other useful "classical" orientations. These techniques are incorporated and organized within a framework (general orientation) of Positive Psychology. In other words, I use proven, evidence-based therapies to help you to fulfill your potential!

Hi! My name is Jamie and I've been a counselor for about a decade now. I specialize in toxic and abusive relationships. That could be with parents, a romantic partner, or friendships. I’m trained in quite a few therapies (cognitive behavioral therapy or CBT is one of them) but the most important thing is finding something that works for you. You’re an individual, so counseling will be tailored to what your specific needs are-and maybe you don't know what you want/need right now because you've never been to counseling! That's fine, too! The relationship between counselor and individual is key. It’s so important to have a trusting bond so I will spend time getting to know you, as well as help. I believe everyone has the power to promote change within themselves but sometimes we all need a little guidance. What an awesome step you’ve made. I know it took courage! I offer a non-judgmental atmosphere, because we're all people and we all have pasts. A little about me: I practice yoga and Reiki healing. I like spending my days with my partner and our two boys, reading, and crocheting (very therapeutic!). I also enjoy hiking and traveling. I can't wait to get to know more about you and help you where you are in your journey.

Welcome! Congratulations on taking this step towards achieving your best life! We are all a work in progress and we can all benefit from an objective, non-judgmental and supportive ear! I would be honored to assist you on your journey. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas. I have provided counseling for over 20 years to clients of all ages with a large range of issues. I also have advanced certification in supervising counseling interns. Although I gravitate towards Cognitive Behavioral and Dialectical Behavioral theories and techniques, I have been trained in a variety of modalities and I am able to match those techniques to your specific needs. I believe in being solution focused and client centered. If you want a safe place to offload your thoughts and feelings, we can do that! If you would like to identify specific goals and consistently measure progress towards those goals, we can do that too. You will tell me what you would like to accomplish and I will support you to make that happen. I am a firm believer in a holistic approach to wellness. I believe that in order to be functioning at our best, we must explore issues of the mind, body and spirit. We are at peace when the mind, body and spirit are all working together in harmony. I have explored and am open to many forms of spirituality. Spirituality helps to foster hope and well-being by acknowledging that which is greater than ourselves (whatever you define that to be). I have also received certification through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and I am certified to teach spin and TRX classes. Although I am open to all types of clients, I have, over the years, developed some specialties. I specialize in Women's Issues which often include relationship issues, career development/workplace challenges, grief and loss, history of trauma and/or abuse, empowerment/self-esteem, development of healthy coping skills, moderation of emotions, anxiety issues, to name a few! I have also worked successfully with the LGBTQ+ community. I look forward to getting to know you and assisting you on your path to growth!

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.

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 Vinton 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 Vinton area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Vinton 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 Vinton 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 Vinton 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 Vinton, 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 Vinton 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 Vinton 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 Vinton 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 Vinton 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 Vinton 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 79821 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 Vinton 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 Vinton 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 Vinton, 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.

Vinton 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.
