Therapy can help you develop the coping strategies you need to manage many of life’s challenges. If you’re looking for a therapist, CO has many online treatment options. Barriers to mental health care, like a lack of available therapists or financial concerns, can make it challenging to find an in-person mental or behavioral health provider. An online therapy platform like BetterHelp can make therapy more flexible and convenient.

At BetterHelp, you can work with a psychologist, social worker, or marriage and family therapist from the comfort of your home at a time that works for you. Plus, you can change providers at any time for no fee until you find one with whom you can have a successful therapeutic relationship.

While BetterHelp does not offer group therapy at this time, the platform allows you to work through your unique challenges with your counselor one-on-one. Whether you need to improve your coping skills, learn to manage everyday stressors, or want to address repetitive behaviors, a BetterHelp provider can guide you through the healing process in a safe, therapeutic space. 

The list below can help you find providers licensed in the state of Colorado so you can learn more about the benefits of online treatment and sign up for your first therapy session.

Feeling overwhelmed, stuck in a routine, confused, drained, disconnected, and desiring it all to be different? My approach is simple, I want to create a space where you feel comfortable to explore, discover, and embrace your authentic self. My job is to be present, validating, and provide an alternative way to look at your experiences and feel empowered, seen, and confident as you live your story. My background as an LCSW ranges from working with individuals, families, caregivers, and groups. I've worked with individuals whose age range from young children to young adulthood living with chronic medical conditions and working through the frustration, grief, and toll it takes. I also have experience working with the parents and caregivers of those living with chronic diagnosis and the emotional strain it can cause. In addition to chronic diagnosis, I have extensive experience working with individuals and groups who have experienced trauma, depression, anxiety, grief/loss, relationship strain, family dynamic issues, life direction challenges, living with or caring for someone with autism, involvement with child protection/human services, LGBTQ+ questions/and or need, faith and religious questions and/or needs. I draw from therapy models such as cognitive behavioral therapy, exposure therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, attachment therapy, narrative therapy, interpersonal therapy, client-centered therapy, solution-focussed therapy, and experiential therapy. I am trained in mindfulness and breath work, and have been certified in the Strengthening Families Model. I will take time getting to know you and hearing you in order to draw from these models and provide appropriate support based on what you are wanting to gain from our time together. I'm honored to take the time you deserve discovering how you can live your life authentically!

Hi, and thank you for checking out my profile! I am the Director of Western Slope Psychological Services in Colorado, and I am the host and creator of the Peace, Love, & Psychology podcast (https://www.buzzsprout.com/2223218). I have worked as a Clinical Psychologist in several different settings with a wide variety of clients. I have worked for a community college district, where I saw students for therapy, trained interns to work with students, and administered programs for Veterans, Disabled Students and LGBT Students. I have worked in mental health clinics and in clinics for patients with chronic pain and illness. I have specialized in working with people who have been exposed to traumatic experiences. Throughout my career, I have worked with people who may never have been in therapy before, and so I excel at explaining psychological concepts in ways people can understand and apply in their own lives. My approach therapeutically is client-centered, so I deeply respect the autonomy and dignity of my patients. I strive to provide a space that is accepting, non-judgmental and solution-oriented. I am trained in and tend to use evidence-based interventions that are cognitive-behavioral, cognitive, or mindfulness oriented. We will work together to help you identify your goals for therapy and develop approaches for achieving them. My ultimate goal for you is for you to learn how to better manage the challenges in your life and to feel empowered to live the life you truly want for yourself. Through our work together, you will receive the support and tools you need to live your best life—let’s get started!

You know that person you always see nuzzled up with their favorite book in the corner of the local coffee shop sipping on a latte? That’s me. I’m the type of person who loves simplicity. I thrive off spending time with my husband and two kids. I love having game nights with friends and laughing till my cheeks hurt, studying the Bible, working out until my body feels like mush, and taking road trips to new places. This is me. What you see is what you get. Let’s be real though, life doesn’t always look like butterflies and rainbows. In fact, it can feel like an absolute beating. If you’re reading this, I’m guessing this is one of your “sometimes.” Stress, depression, emptiness, anxiety, and self-judgment are constantly knocking at our doors. It’s the worst, but the good news is it doesn’t have to stay that way. For as long as I can remember, my greatest passion in life has been to help people overcome the lows life presents. I absolutely love helping people. It's not what I do, it's who I am. My goal is to listen and equip you, so you can keep climbing higher in this journey called life. I'd love to chat if you're ready to get out of a valley in your life.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some commonly asked questions can be found below.

How much does a therapist cost?

Mental health professionals can differ in price. Forbes found that the average cost of in-person therapy in the US is around $100 to $200 per hour. Pricing can also vary based on your location. 

BetterHelp offers payment plans of $60 to $90 per session, charged monthly in a lump sum. You can also take advantage of this pricing on one of BetterHelp's sister platforms, like ReGain for couples or TeenCounseling for teens aged 13 to 19.

Many therapists may be upfront about their pricing and whether or not they take health insurance from the beginning. Additionally, some in your area may offer a sliding scale plan to allow those with lower incomes to pay less for therapy. However, services online can often save individuals a few hundred dollars per month.

How do I know if I should get a therapist?

Mental health services and mental health providers may help you navigate various concerns. You do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy; You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general advice. A counselor may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Mental health issues don't always present as a crisis. Many professionals provide talk therapy and support for life transitions, skills learning, relationship problems, or life coaching. Online therapy sessions in Colorado can allow clients seeking therapy to experience professional help through video, phone, or live chat sessions without commuting to an office.

Does insurance cover therapy?

Different counseling services can vary in cost. Therapists must apply to accept insurance through insurance companies, which may take time and money, so not every therapist offers services through insurance. If you cannot find a therapist that accepts your plan, BetterHelp may be cheaper than visiting an in-person therapist.

Is online therapy safe?

Online therapy through BetterHelp and its sister platforms is safe. Therapists are licensed, experienced, and vetted before being contracted with the platform. If you experience any concerns with your therapist, you change your counselor through the platform or app at any time.
