Depression and anxiety are two of the most common mental health concerns our clients face. It can look like numbness, anger, avoidance, "checking out", confusion, difficulty concentrating, inability to focus, loss of interest; changes in diet, sleep, energy, weight; and use of substances, among others. When you feel like your mind is your worst enemy, and that you've lost control of some aspect of your life, the world can feel scary and hopeless.
Plot twist - it doesn't have to be that way forever. Depression and anxiety are very treatable utilizing the help of a trained and experienced counselor. Psychotropic medication and peer support can also be very helpful in achieving relief from life's dark spots. Reach out today to learn more.
Many individuals struggle with experiences they find haunting, from which they are not sure how to move forward. The stressful situation may have happened directly to the person, or they may have witnessed an event that has contributed to or exacerbated depression, anxiety, substance use disorders, crumbling relationships, job-related loss and crisis, academic problems, dissociation, even thoughts of harming oneself or others. Thin Line Counseling Services, LLC utilizes evidence-based trauma-informed CBT (cognitive-behavioral therapy) techniques as well as mindfulness and grounding exercises to help you feel safe in your body and environment again.
Currently, Thin Line Counseling Services, LLC is offering telehealth-only counseling sessions to individuals residing in Missouri, Illinois, and Florida. We use Doxy, a secure and confidential platform that abides by HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) regulations. This means you can get help from the privacy of your own turf, on your terms. Live in a rural area? Differently-abled? Sick? Working late? No transportation? Don't want to walk into a therapy office? No problem. So long as you have a reliable internet connection, we have you covered.
In addition to counseling, Thin Line Counseling Services, LLC offers consultation with employers, public service agencies, and can provide training. Our therapist is a CEAP (Certified Employee Assistance Professional) with specialized training and experience in providing consultation to managers/supervisors and treating clients via EAP programs. We also are happy to discuss guest lecturing for your organization or education program. There is a separate fee structure for these services. Reach out today to learn more or discuss working with Beth in the areas of employment and education on mental health topics.
Typical initial intake sessions last about an hour, and subsequent counseling sessions are approximately 50 minutes in length. Please note all appointment times are offered in CST/Central time zone. Thin Line Counseling Services, LLC currently accepts private payment and offers a sliding scale model based on income. We are in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield/BCBS, Cigna, United Healthcare/Optum, and UMR. Due to the nature of telehealth, it is essential that you have access to crisis services as your therapist may not live in your area. Please see our "Contact Us" tab for resources.

"Beth has been great at helping me navigate an extremely difficult time in my life dealing with severe anxiety due to a chain of recent life events and challenges. She is an amazing listener, allowing me to vent when needed and asking direct-to-the-point questions drilling down to the core issues at hand. My sessions with her have given me the objective clarity I've needed to keep moving forward and has helped me realize I am not my own thoughts. She is kind, reassuring and supportive and not judgemental and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is serious about taking control of their mental health." - M.L.
"Beth is a wonderful listener and was extremely supportive during my bout of situational depression. She helped recommend ways to work through my depression, she listened to anything and everything I had to say, and make me realize what I was going through was a temporary thing. I'm in a much better place now thanks to her support. I highly recommend her to anyone who may be in a similar situation and wants to feel better about themselves. Thank you, Beth." - B.H.
"I started seeing Beth when I couldn't cope with anxiety and panic during the beginning of the pandemic. She worked with me as I started medication and really gave me space to process and techniques to redirect my thoughts. Since then, we've also worked on my long-running struggles with depression, family trauma, anger issues, boundary setting, and coming out as a member of the LGBTQ community. She's helped me get to a much better place mentally and my life has improved a lot because of it." - S.C.
"Beth has really helped me on my journey of personal self-growth. I had tried therapy previously, and while I found it somewhat helpful, I was left feeling unsatisfied and stagnant. However now after working closely with Beth, I feel like I’ve made tremendous strides! She’s been instrumental in helping to provide tools and guidance for me utilize in becoming a happier, less anxious, and better functioning person." -K.Z.
