Beth Rainey, LPC Associate
Licensed Professional Counselor Associate
Serving Clients In Spring
Hi. My name is Beth Rainey and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Associate, supervised by Summer Allen, Ph.D., LPC-S. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary/Early Childhood Education from The University of Texas at Austin (Hook 'Em Horns) and my Master's degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Houston-Clear Lake. Prior to becoming a mental health clinician, I was a Kindergarten teacher in Klein ISD for many years.
Mental health wellbeing is the cornerstone of my life, personally and professionally. My own family's healing journey has led to a passion for walking with, and holding space for, others in a non-judgmental, empathic manner. Harville Hendrix states, "We are born in relationships, we are wounded in relationships, and we can be healed in relationships". It is within the therapeutic relationship, between client and therapist, that healing can begin. Helping guide my clients, as they learn not just how to survive, but thrive, is the foundation of my therapeutic approach.
"Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn't you - all of the expectations, all of the beliefs- and becoming who you are."
~ Rachel Naomi Remen
I have experience working with individuals and groups, particularly in the areas of trauma, PTSD, addictive behaviors, relationship stress, family of origin issues, depression, anxiety, grief, and loss, using a variety of modalities that best suits each client. I enjoy working with adolescents and their families, as well as adults throughout the lifespan. I have trained extensively in experiential methods, specifically psychodrama, group psychotherapy and sociometry, since 2015, and am working toward my certification in this effective modality. I am an eager learner, and continue to educate myself, particularly in the areas of trauma-informed care, attachment-based approaches, somatic experiencing, and mindfulness, to find effective ways to help my clients move further toward their own healing.
When I'm not working, I enjoy time spent with family and friends, gardening (especially African violets), listening to music, traveling, and reading a good book.
