Beenen Therapy Group

Beenen Therapy Group, located in Jacksonville Beach, Florida, and serving the Northeast and beyond, is an experienced psychotherapy practice treating adolescents, adults, couples, and families. Our therapists use an eclectic approach by incorporating traditional and newer psychotherapeutic modalities— psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, EMDR (trauma therapy), Gottman Method (couples therapy)  DBT (dialectical behavioral therapy for emotional regulation), ERP (exposure and response prevention; for OCD and anxiety), among other methods. We specialize in treating trauma (PTSD), codependency, grief, depression, anxiety, OCD, parenting, and relationship challenges.

Beenen Therapy Group clinical director and founder, Selina Beenen, LCSW, has been a licensed psychotherapist in practice for 23 years and hand-selects each therapist in the practice to meet the needs of each client.
She provides direct supervision to ensure that each client receives comprehensive care and that the treatment is effective for each individual and family.  Our goal is to use all the treatment techniques possible to affect positive change in each individual, couple, and/or family.  We like to see good results as quickly as possible...not years of therapy.  

Unveiling the Power of Therapy: Transforming Mental Health

In today's fast-paced and demanding world, the significance of mental health cannot be overstated. Just as we prioritize physical well-being, it is equally crucial to nurture our minds and emotions. Fortunately, therapy stands as an invaluable tool that offers immense benefits in promoting and maintaining optimal mental health.

Emotional Support: Therapy provides a safe and confidential space where individuals can openly express their thoughts, feelings, and concerns without judgment. A therapist acts as a compassionate guide, offering unwavering support and understanding. This emotional connection aids in alleviating feelings of loneliness, isolation, and anxiety, fostering a sense of belonging and validation.

Self-Exploration and Insight: Therapy acts as a transformative journey, enabling individuals to delve into their inner world and explore the roots of their thoughts, behaviors, and emotions. By gaining a deeper understanding of oneself, individuals can identify patterns, triggers, and obstacles that may hinder personal growth. This self-awareness paves the way for developing healthier coping mechanisms and making positive changes.

Coping Skills and Resilience: Life presents us with various challenges, and therapy equips individuals with invaluable coping skills. Therapists impart practical strategies to manage stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues. These techniques empower individuals to navigate life's ups and downs with resilience, fostering a greater sense of control and emotional well-being.

Improved Relationships: Mental health struggles often impact interpersonal relationships. Therapy offers a platform to explore and address relationship dynamics, communication patterns, and conflicts. By enhancing self-awareness and emotional intelligence, individuals can foster healthier connections, deepen empathy, and nurture fulfilling relationships.

Breaking Stigma: Therapy plays a pivotal role in breaking down the barriers and dismantling the stigma associated with mental health. Seeking therapy demonstrates strength, self-care, and a commitment to personal growth. As more people share their experiences and advocate for mental health, it creates a ripple effect, encouraging others to prioritize their well-being and seek the support they need.

Customized Approach: Therapy encompasses a wide range of modalities, ensuring that individuals can find an approach that resonates with their unique needs and preferences. From cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and psychodynamic therapy to mindfulness-based techniques and art therapy, there is a vast array of therapeutic options available. This versatility allows individuals to tailor their therapy experience, promoting an effective and personalized healing journey.

Therapy has become an indispensable ally in the realm of mental health. Its multifaceted benefits encompass emotional support, self-exploration, coping skills, relationship enhancement, stigma reduction, and a customized approach. By embracing therapy, individuals embark on a transformative path, nurturing their mental well-being and unlocking their fullest potential. Remember, seeking help is a courageous step towards a healthier, happier life.
