Beth Halterman, Masters Intern

“You don’t have to be positive all the time. It’s perfectly okay to feel sad, angry, annoyed, frustrated, scared and anxious. Having feelings doesn’t make you a negative person. It makes you human.” — Lori Deschene

This quote represents a lot of what I believe as a therapist.  We are all complex beings filled with unique experiences, emotions, and our own ways of handling stressful and unpredictable situations.  From time to time when we don’t fully understand how to handle events that are going on in our lives, we need someone to walk with us through those tough times.  As a mental health counselor, I want to walk with you as you navigate through your journey and help you find your way to the answers you are looking for.

I am excited to begin my journey at Inner Courage Counseling as a Masters-level intern.  I am currently working towards my Masters of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois.  As I begin the final year of my Master’s program, I realize the incredible opportunity I have in front of me to work alongside other professionals who are equally as passionate about mental health and personal well-being as I am, and who will help me continue to grow as a therapist.  I have extensive training in strengths-based therapy, which involves using personal strengths to overcome everyday stressors.  I also worked on the Eating Disorder Unit at Linden Oaks Behavioral Health Services as a behavioral health associate where I worked both one-on-one and in groups, with people struggling with eating disorders and body image issues.

When it comes to therapy, I do not believe that there is one approach that is universally beneficial to everyone.  Each client is different and has their own unique story that they wish to tell.  Because of this, I like to tailor the therapeutic approaches that I work from to meet each client’s specific needs.  I primarily see children and adolescents, but I also enjoy working with couples and groups as well.  My areas of clinical interests include: anxiety, depression, eating disorders/body image issues, grief & loss, couples counseling, group counseling, and trauma.  I enjoy practicing from a Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT) approach, but I also enjoy using Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Play Therapy, Mindfulness, and Strengths-Based Therapy.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my dogs Penny and Bo, trying new restaurants, fishing, camping (really anything that involves being outside!), baking, reading, and relaxing on the couch.

"When getting in touch with someone to find a therapist I was emailed by Stacy Ramirez, she was very kind and helpful which was appreciated because I have never seen a therapist so I was unsure of the process. I had my first session with Beth Halterman, she made sure to introduce herself before the first session which i thought was very sweet because I was a bit nervous about seeking a therapist to begin with and seeing someone face to face for the first time without having ever spoken before would have made me a bit more nervous."

"Inner Courage Counseling has a lovely building that's warm and clean. My counselor was so good that when she started at Inner Courage I moved practices so I could stay with her. I would absolutely recommended them to anyone seeking counseling."

"I have always been hesitant about counseling especially when it involves my daughter. But I have to say Brittany Roback is absolutely amazing. My daughter has been seeing Brittany for about 6 months now and I have seen great improvements. Just after the first session I saw my daughter using skills Brittany had shown her. Brittany has always made sure to make my daughter and myself feel comfortable. My daughter sees it as a safe place when she sees Brittany."

"Inner Courage Counseling has really been there for me from the moment I first called and they continue to be. I have always struggled to find a counselor that I mesh well with and one that creates an environment that I feel encouraged to dedicate time for myself. I’ve learned things about myself that I never knew before and I’m excited because I know I will continue to. I truly feel like I am growing in a positive way after each session. That’s both exciting and encouraging for me."
