As a therapist, I can understand the anxiety and fear surrounding your decision to seek therapy for yourself. I would like to partner with you as you navigate your world. As a therapist, I provide an eclectic approach to counseling, with a belief that in order to understand the present, one must understand his or her past. I operate from a strengths-based perspective because I believe both children and adults are resilient and given the right tools, can solve their own problems. In addition to various mental health issues and concerns, I have an understanding of adoption and foster care, multi cultural families and how that impacts one's identity. The 'Who am I and where do I come from?' is an important question that we all ask ourselves. I've received specialized training and certification as an Adoption Competent Therapist through The Center for Adoption Support and Education, located in Burtonsville, MD. I want to make sure I meet your needs. Are you questioning whether or not I would be a good fit? Here are some things to consider: If you're looking for a therapist to be empathetic, warm, encouraging, but direct, we might be a good fit. If you're looking for a therapist who respects your time, as well as, expects the same, we might be a good fit. If you're looking for a therapist you can laugh or cry with, but yet be supportive, we might be a good fit. If you're looking for a therapist to hold space, but yet at the same time help you identify solutions to your real world problems and concerns, we might be a good fit. If you're looking to dig in and actually do "the work", we might be a good fit. If this sounds and is something that resonates with you, please make sure you message me directly regarding availability. I look forward to working with you!

Hello and welcome to my page. My name is Alecia Beaudry and I want to thank you for taking the time to read my profile to see if I might be a good fit to support you in managing your mental health. I invite you to message me with any additional questions you might have about my skills, treatment methods and experience. I am a Wisconsin based Licensed Clinical Social Worker, who currently is in private practice in Elm Grove Wisconsin. I earned my Master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 1999. At that time, I also completed an additional concentration in marriage and family therapy. During my 20+ years in the field, I have worked in a variety of settings that have allowed me to develop a strong knowledge base of acute psychiatric disorders as well as supporting people who are in life’s transitions. I am passionate about working with clients to support overall health and wellbeing. I believe it is possible for everyone to live a satisfying life. I use creativity in my practice to approach problems that people have worked years to resolve with no success. I use a combination of therapeutic techniques to support my clients in meeting their goals. Complex problems require creative solutions and I feel it is my responsibility to inspire my clients to move in the direction of health. One of my main personal and professional goals over the years has been to create a positive connection with anyone who comes in contact with me. As a result, I have developed an easy manner and it allows me to connect with clients and make them comfortable. The therapeutic relationship is the single most important part of the process. I never forget the courage it takes to work on oneself and feel honored to support people on their journey to create a satisfying life.

Often, therapy opens the door to discovering a sense of purpose, cultivating resiliency, finding courage, and creating a richer and more pleasant experience of day to day life. Therapy is both a rewarding and challenging experience that has the potential to provide a number of benefits including resolution of the initial problem, increased positive outlook, and improved relationships. This is a place to go deeper, connect the past to the present, work on behavior change, cultivate coping strategies, work through difficult experiences/thoughts/emotions, and develop an appealing view of the future. Individual therapy will incorporate an assessment including personal history, treatment planning, and evaluation of treatment and possible outcomes. Personally: I am married to a spectacular woman and we have two cute little girls under 3 years old. I am a Wisconsin native, both nerd and outdoorsman. I enjoy exquisite coffee, board games, fishing, reading, camping, and gardening among other hobbies. ​ Professionally: My primary interests and expertise are in working with adults. My strengths are helping people to navigate grief, sadness, confusion, fear, uncertainty, addiction, a sense of being stuck, other unpleasant thoughts and emotions, creating healthy relationships, impulse control, making important life decisions, as well as general men's and Women's issues.

How to find counseling in Neenah

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Neenah.

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 Neenah, 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 Neenah 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. They may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain.

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Neenah 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 Neenah 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 Neenah may not take health insurance, some in the state of Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin 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 Neenah, Wisconsin 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 Neenah 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.

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 Neenah 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 Neenah 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 WI, 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.

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 Neenah 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 Neenah 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 Neenah, Wisconsin 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.

Neenah 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.
