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.

It is my goal to help your process be as easy as it can be by providing you a safe, supportive, and accepting environment to explore your unique journey. I offer compassion and objective listening. Together we can orchestrate the best plan to help you through a difficult time, prepare for your next adventure or to continue on your current path. It is my goal to empower individuals, families, and couples to overcome personal obstacles in order to improve their relationships by using clinically tested interventions. Healthy relationships can improve overall well-being. I enjoy working with individuals, families, and couples. I take an eclectic approach when formulating a customized treatment plan that best fits your specific needs and goals. Examples of approaches I might work from are cognitive behavioral therapy, family systems, attachment theory, solution-focused, or dialectical behavioral treatment. I believe people are constantly seeking to grow, renew themselves and blossom into their fullest potential. It is my goal to assist you in successfully meeting your personal and professional goals and becoming who you are longing to be. I hold two Master's Degrees; one in Leadership and another in Counseling; and I am also a nurse. I believe my educational background and work experience assists me in approaching and treating the whole person. I would be delighted to help your family become engaged again with positive communication, better understanding of one another, and even the return of laughter. I have a passion for restoring intimate relationships to their healthiest state. Relationships with respect, trust, and love with the most important people in your lives.

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. These virtual private sessions definitely add significant value to your experience and outcomes. It is very easy to subscribe and get started. There is even live technical support there too to assist you as needed. So... 'Let's Talk'. I appreciate and respect you. My heartfelt desire is to help you make the most out of your life and circumstances. Use resources available to you. In all you think, recall, do, decide, feel, and are with, do it more mindfully. 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

Welcome! My name is James Cameron, a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (LPC-S) in the state of Texas and LPC in Colorado. In addition to holding another license in Texas and a national license. I have been privileged to work with people through a wide range of concerns both personal and professional. Beyond the supervision and instruction required for licensure several opportunities to study and learn from leaders in the field, both in America and internationally, have come my way. I started my licensed journey in 1999 and have continued growing skills ever since then. Looking forward to serving you. My therapy style involves treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. Labels, while good to provide broad ideas of issues, do little to express your individual situation. Once established your services will be tailored to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to the privilege of working with you!

I believe in meeting each and every client where they are and ensuring that you are heard, respected, and understood, no matter the circumstances.

I've worked in the mental health field for almost 20 years and I became a licensed therapist in 2020.

In addition, I also specialize in behavior, family dynamics, communication, and relationships. I look forward to providing you a safe space for processing, venting, working through trauma, learning healthy coping skills, and becoming the best version of yourself possible.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

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 Dell City 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 Dell City 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 Dell City 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.

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 Dell 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 Dell 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 Dell 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 Dell 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 Dell 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.

Dell 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.
