About me

Hello! If you are exploring Better Help, it is likely that you are struggling with something significant in your life. Finding the right person to help you through these challenges is very important. If you don't have a good relationship with your counselor, you won't make the progress you are hoping to achieve. I want to provide you with some information about me in order to help you decide if my experience and style is the right match for you.

I am a professional counselor licensed in Wyoming and Colorado and a National Certified Counselor. I have been counseling individuals since 2003 when I graduated with a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology. In 2018 I graduated with a Ph.D. in General Psychology, which added to my knowledge base. Throughout the years, I have worked in a variety of settings including private practice, community mental health centers, and schools. I have worked with people of all ages experiencing a wide variety of struggles, from everyday issues to depression and anxiety. My approach is client-centered and I use theory and techniques from humanistic therapy, solution-focused therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy. I understand that each person's experiences and needs are unique and I will tailor our work to fit your goals.

We can interact in the modality that is most comfortable to you - live chat, live voice, or live video. In between live sessions, we can use the messaging system to discuss scheduling and outside assignments, share thoughts and questions that come up between sessions, and share and discuss journal entries (if you use that feature). My availability is primarily in the evenings and on the weekends.

I know finding a counselor can be difficult and I would be honored to take this journey with you.

She's awesome. Empathetic, patient, kind, and friendly. She's really eager and focused on moving forward with you as a client/patient, and really good at productive and constructive dialogue.

She’s amazing. Unfortunately I am in a situation where I need 24/7 support. Better Help can’t provide that.

I have been so grateful for Dr. Wester’s guidance and partnership these past many months. She is receptive and attentive, supportive and insightful, a sounding board when I need it, or a mirror. She offers proactive, actionable advice at every session. I have made so much progress reorienting my viewpoint and accepting myself with Dr. Wester’s able guidance.

Dr. Wester had been a wonderful help for me. I worked with her a year ago and then took some time off for life and picked up again with her the end of this year. It was beneficial to not have to start all over again and to work with someone who really helps me out in so many ways. I have recommended her to friends who need this type of support.

Dr. Wester is extremely thorough on helping me understand my situations and how to approach them. She responds to messages as quickly as she can and is very accommodating when adjusting scheduled sessions.
