About me

Hello! Welcome to Better Help! My name is Ann Newman (She/Her), and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Licensed Addiction Counselor practicing in Colorado. I graduated from Newman University in 2012, and have been working in the social services field with a wide variety of clients for 15 years. I discovered my passion for helping others when I first went to college, realizing quickly that the Business field I was initially interested in would never be as fulfilling as aiding another person to get through a tough time.

During my career, I have worked with children in foster care, family reunification, individuals with intellectual disabilities, individuals in a prison setting , LGBT individuals, and more recently with individuals, families, and groups with diagnoses of substance use and mental health disorders. I would describe my clinical approach as trauma-informed and client centered, with the goal of understanding what you want from your therapeutic experience and creating realistic goals we can achieve together. I employ Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and skills based learning, combined with an empathetic approach to your unique situation.

I can work with you through video, phone, or chat. However I find being able to connect through video to be most helpful in developing a strong therapeutic connection. My availability is mostly weekends, and I check my messages at least once a day throughout the week.

This is a great first step in helping yourself feel better and to begin a conversation geared towards your goals and needs. Sometimes we just need someone to talk to so we can sort it all out.

I look forward to working with you!
