8 years of experience as a mental health therapist

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!

5 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hi, my name is Romy Rodriguez and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. My first job in the field was Crisis and I loved every single aspect of it. I have also worked at The Village where I was in charge of the PPW (Post-Partum) program where I provided individual and case management services to women in the court system. I also provided Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to adolescents and their families who lived in the shelter called Lotus House in Miami, FL. I also provide EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) Therapy to treat trauma, depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions. As a clinician, I value empathy and unconditional positive regard. Each client have different needs and they have a different treatment approach. My approaches are TFCBT, EMDR, and CBT models. These models are used to help each client work towards gaining confidence and a connection with their feelings, trust and peace of mind.

Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Bayfield or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Bayfield therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Bayfield due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Bayfield may not take health insurance, some in the state of Colorado may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With a BetterHelp therapist throughout the state of Colorado you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Bayfield?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Bayfield therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance.

Bayfield therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Bayfield therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Bayfield therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Bayfield counselor?

Before seeing your Bayfield therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Bayfield.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, 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 feedback and advice from a therapist. A Bayfield licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Bayfield counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Bayfield, Colorado can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Bayfield has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
