Hi! My name is Mary Beth Harbin. As a woman acquainted with hurting but also healing, I am willing to navigate dark places with clients while offering the hope of renewed strength and lasting victory. I consider counseling a sacred invitation into the hurts and hopes of those I counsel; therefore, I deem individuals who seek my counseling services to be most courageous as they choose to share the most intimate snapshots of their lives, relationships, and vulnerabilities with me. In exchange, clients can expect a safe and non-judgmental environment for healing and restoration to take place.

Women are so incredibly resilient and resourceful.
I believe that we are all image-bearers of God, as having been created in His image. Therefore, the client and I both bring resources into the therapy room with which to work collaboratively toward a healthier life for the client-- mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Beyond my training in Marriage and Family Therapy, I have experience that I bring to the table from my own life journey-- parenting into adulthood; divorce recovery; partner betrayal trauma, spiritual formation; marriage and relationships; career counseling; codependency issues; and addictions. My greatest core belief is that there is always hope!

I've had much success in helping women fix relationships, work through hurtful/confusing experiences, and ultimately find themselves and their happiness.
"Why do I replay events over and over in my head?", "What happened to my focus/ drive?", "Why does it seem like my family doesn't want to spend time with me?", "Why am I so stressed out all the time? It's like a can't relax anymore". Are these YOUR questions? I know you are tired of feeling exhausted, not like yourself, overwhelmed, lonely, disappointed, angry, numb, or hurt. You've found that your "distractions" aren't helping anymore. I specialize in brief therapy- we will get to the heart of the issue, so you can feel better- with lasting changes- fast. It's not too late to turn it all around.

I specialize in perinatal counseling and want to help women who are in any stage of early motherhood.
You want to be a confident mom who enjoys her child, but there are so many things that get in the way. Maybe you and your partner have been struggling to get pregnant or you have had multiple losses. Are you pregnant and worrying about everything? Are you a first-time mom or a mom of multiples just trying to figure out your new "normal?" All of these phases of motherhood can bring different struggles and feelings of overwhelm. You should be able to honestly process your experience of motherhood without cultural pressures that say being a great mom should look a certain way.

There are challenges in everyone’s life that can seem daunting. At such times, an experienced guide to assist us in identifying the thoughts and feelings associated with our current difficulties can be beneficial. We all have within us the capacity to be our best selves and live fulfilling lives. We carry with us our unique combination of genetics, upbringing, and life experiences which impact our interactions with ourselves and others. While employing efforts to get our needs met, attain happiness, and create satisfying connections with others, we may find ourselves engaging in ineffective and counterproductive behaviors.

You thought you would be in a different place by now. You’ve done all the right things and checked all the boxes. But for some reason, you’re still not happy. There’s at least one area of your life where you experience negative thoughts like “I’m not good enough. I’m a failure. I’m a terrible person.” These thoughts might be in the background all the time or they might only pop up when you’re around certain people, when you go home to visit family, when bad memories get stuck on a repeating loop, or when you’re working another day in that job you hate. Whatever it is that triggers these thoughts, they make you feel terrible.

With so many challenges facing us today, it can be overwhelming, even downright frightening, attempting to manage our emotions or life’s challenges – often both. Working through adversity helps us to discover who we are authentically and places us on a path of understanding and growth. The path can seem lonely and confusing, but I am here to assist. My ideal client is someone who has made a commitment to themselves to face their uniqueness, their circumstances, and their challenges with a new perspective. (New clients outside Central MS by virtual appointment only).

It takes a lot to verbalize that you don't have all the answers and are stuck. Lets be honest, many of us struggle with day to day activities, become overwhelmed by duties and expectations, and cease living and enjoying our daily gifts. I look to help you find new meaning to your story and declutter life's messy pieces in order for you to live beyond simply existing.

It seems that life gets harder and crazier every day. With the demands from work, family and everything in between we aren't always able to cope or manage the stress on our own. On top of that, we struggle with trauma, depression, grief, anxiety, and/or many other issues which makes life even more challenging. I would love to help you work towards a more enjoyable life.

Life gets hard for all of us at times and sometimes we just need help finding our way back to our true self. I love working with people and helping them find their own inner strength and establishing a loving relationship with themselves. This is what brings us back to understanding how precious and uniquely God made each of us. Out of this comes the return of joy and beginning of relationships with others in more healthy ways.

Life can be filled with heartbreak(s), disappointments and frustrations that lead one to feel hopeless and filled with despair. Unfortunately, during this time you feel alone, or you feel like no one understands what you are going through. The veil of resilience and compassion is important and necessary to put the following four concepts in perspective to help give clarity to a situation: 1. Insight 2. Self-Esteem 3. Action 4. Healing. There are no issues too great for an individual to overcome if they put forth the effort. Therapy is a process that promotes change and encourages an individual to seek their self-selecting truth.

Female Therapists

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
