Thank you for taking the time to explore mental health as a means to improve your quality of life. I am aware that seeking counseling is a major sacrifice, yet it changes the trajectory of your life. My name is Dr. Sandra Webster-Brown. I identify as an African American female, she, her, hers. I am a licensed professional counselor in both the state of Texas and Colorado. A few of the populations I have worked with but not limited to practice include: Addictions, relationship issues, LGBTQIA, trauma, depression, and anxiety. I received a PhD from St. Mary's University in San Antonio, TX. My clinical training has been in trauma related issues with children, adolescents and adults. The approach I use to counseling is empathetic and interactive. I believe each client is expert in their situation. As counselor, my role is to guide you to a lifestyle that embodies a sense of stability, peace, and feeling of progression. Together we work toward managing and removing the barriers that prevent reaching life's meaning and purposeful goals. I will frequently inquire from you an evaluation, if my approach feels comfortable for you since counseling is a place to stimulate empowerment and growth. Because counseling is a safe environment to communicate what's on your mind in a non-judgmental environment, I want to make sure you have the space to explore the deep recesses of your heart, at your pace, in your time. When you are ready to speak or just be, I am available to support you. I am here for you.

My name is Madison and I have been providing therapy services for over 7 years in Ohio and Minnesota. I have experience working with individuals of all ages and walks of life in a variety of settings, including schools, physician's office/hospitals, and private practice. My approach typically includes methods from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT, Solutions-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT). Some issues I specialize in include anxiety, depression, behavioral concerns, interpersonal conflict, and coping with major life changes. However, I believe that every client is unique and has different needs, even if they are facing similar challenges. It is my job to figure out which approach will be most effective for you. I received my Bachelor of Science in Social Work and my Master of Social Work degrees from the Ohio State University, where I also played division 1 hockey. As an athlete, I learned that resiliency, determination, and collaboration are important skills not only in sports, but also in life. As a therapist, I see my clients as my teammate. We will work together towards a common goal, which we will set together. You have your strengths, and we will identify those and use them to our advantage. The fact that you are here shows me that you are ready to make a change. Seeking support is the first and most difficult step. I am so glad that you are here, and am excited for us to work together to improve your quality of life. Welcome to our starting line!

My name is Katie Graff. I am a therapist based in Austin, Texas. I have had a private practice for the last six years and have been working in the mental health field for 14 years. I provide individual and couple's therapy to adults and adolescents. I believe many of us already possess the knowledge, strengths, and resources to resolve our own problems; however, a trained and supportive professional can help identify tools and strengths as well as assist with improving coping skills. My role is to provide gentle guidance, support, and encouragement to clients that are struggling or are facing challenges. I work to create a nurturing and safe environment that creates a comfortable place where we can explore issues and any negativity that may be getting in the way of leading a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

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.

Hello, in an effort to introduce myself, I am a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Florida. I became involved in counseling because my husband was a Vietnam veteran that suffered from chronic PTSD and unfortunately Agent Orange. Initially, I wanted to only work with veterans' administration but there were other opportunities in life for me. I have worked in the prison system here in Florida, I have also worked at a community counseling centers and I have also had the pleasure to work with children, most of which were in the DCF program. Children are incredibly resilient. I have worked with clients that have suffered from depression, anxiety, anger management, abandonment issues, ADHD, and trauma. Counselling for me is a way to help people reconnect to who they are, encourage faith, compassion and sensitivity and respect for who they are. I work to develop an empathetic working relationship based on trust. It takes courage to reach out and ask for help and change is hard, but incredible rewarding. Reach out and take the first step. I look forward to hearing from you!

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Cokedale area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Cokedale 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 Cokedale 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 Cokedale 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 BetterHelp or clinicians 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).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Cokedale, Colorado working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Cokedale above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets.

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Cokedale therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a 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. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

A psychologist 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 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 Cokedale 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 lot of people in CO, providers may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 81082 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your 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. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist 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. A Cokedale 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 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.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy 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 professional 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 Cokedale, 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.

Cokedale 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?

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.
