About Me

I'm Mycca Montoya, LMFT (Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist). As a therapist, I enjoy helping clients develop resilience and build on their current strengths in order to decrease and ultimately eliminate emotional distress. I work with a wide variety of clients, working through varying issues. Some of the issues I specialize in are:
- Depression
- Anxiety
- Trauma/Abuse
- Grief and Loss
- Addition issues
- Family Conflict
- Parenting Issues
- Relational Issues (partner/familial)

Through empathy, support and thoughtful insight, we will work to increase you emotional well-being. I provide support and encouragement to help foster your current strengths as well as help you to find and develop additional strengths. I use a variety of modalities, all of which focus on your strengths as well as promote hope. As a therapist I feel it is important to increase a client's ability to advocate for themselves as well as give themselves credit for their success and strengths. I also value the importance of a strong, trusting therapeutic relationship between client and clinician. I am a straight shooter and I feel that honesty is key in effective therapeutic relationships. I believe that respect communicates understanding as well as empathy for any and everyone in any and every situation.

On a personal note, I was born and raised in rural New Mexico. I spend my time during the week as an outpatient therapist, working with ages 2 and up. I also spend my free time working on my family's ranch. I feel that I have been fortunate to have roots in rural America as well as planted new roots in the clinical setting.

We will work to find the best online option for you so that e-therapy fits into your life easily and works best for you. I am available to work with clients through any of the following methods:
- Video Sessions
- Live Messaging
- Telephone
- Asynchronous messaging

I look forward to working with you.

Mycca is a really warm-hearted and friendly counsellor. Instantly, you feel you can be open and trust that she has no judgement about what you say. Her concern and care is evident and her willingness to point out alternatives and dig a bit deeper into things is wonderful.

Mycca is really nice and made me feel less awkward, being very gentle and kind with her messages and also insightful. She is a great professional and I could recommend her to everyone, especially if you are starting out with any kind of therapy and are a bit stressed about it as I was. Thank you Mycca from the bottom of my heart!

Mycca is exceptionally kind and positive. She is insightful and very practical in the suggestions she continues to give. I wasn't sure what to expect from this experience but Mycca has been very kind in encouraging me to speak my mind. I feel quite fortunate to have been paired up with her.

I have multiple issues going on and some days I can barely cope. I find it so comforting that I have the ability to access a counseling service at any time.. Mycca has supported me though some tough moments and for that I am so grateful.

Mycca is great! A fantastic listener, and very responsive with feedback. Truly perceptive, non-judgmental, and caring.

Written by T.A. on Oct 19, 2017 after counseling with Mycca for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Mycca has been very supportive, and very available. My only concern is certainly not her fault, but just in the great difference in our ages. She's definitely guided me to ask questions of myself, and look at things from a different perspective.

Written by N.E. on Aug 25, 2017 after counseling with Mycca for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression

Mycca is a great listener. She is compassionate and genuinely caring. Thank you so much for all your help.

Written by D.A. on Aug 24, 2017 after counseling with Mycca for 2 weeks

So far, BetterHelp and Mycca are helping me sort through things. It's so easy because I can write everything down. If it was face-to-face I don't think I'd be half as honest. Mycca seems like a lovely lady though, and is really supporting me.

Mycca is a great counselor. She provides me with interesting insights to have me think about things differently. She also checks up on me if I don't reply for some time. It is reassuring to know that I can ask for her insights anytime and that she will read my sometimes long ramblings and reply efficiently :)
She also reminds me to celebrate my victories (not drinking) and gives great insights about my past relationships. I would definitely recommend Mycca!
