46 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I’m a Clinical Social Worker, licensed in Colorado. I’ve been in the field of mental health counseling for over 40 years (I can hardly believe this!) and work with young adults, adults and seniors. My experience has been in both inpatient psychiatric hospitals and outpatient settings. I love my work and feel blessed to have found it. My specialty is work with seniors, particularly in addressing the many changes that come with aging — including loss, relationship changes, coping with health, etc. I strongly believe that the client is the “boss” in therapy. You are hiring me to help you. Together, we identify the problem(s) you are presenting and the goals to help alleviate those problems. I am honest, forthright, warm and caring. While you are who will help you get better, I will be there to support you. My treatment approaches are varied. - I like to say that I use “whatever works”, whether that is insight oriented therapy, mindfulness, behavioral, grief work, etc. I’m here to join you in your journey to health and can’t wait to meet you! Let’s begin!

20 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I have worked for 20+ years in the field of counseling. My experience is mainly focused on substance abuse issues, related trauma, and the mental health problems that often co-exist. I am a holistic provider, which means that I see the person wholly, mind, body, spirit, and seek to help clients experience themselves wholly. Problems do not occur in a vacuum. Without this holistic perspective, it is easy to focus on one thing, but neglect the core issue driving that "one thing." My approach is one of "partnering" with the client. Not leading, not following, but walking with you as you rediscover your true self, and then seek to find internal balance which leads to a more productive and fulfilled lifestyle. I consider it a great privilege when someone trusts me enough to share at the level necessary to effect life changes, and I believe that confidentiality is the bedrock of therapy.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Commerce City 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 Commerce City due to a higher cost of living.

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

Before seeing your Commerce City 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 Commerce City.

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 Commerce City 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 Commerce City counselor can be dependent on your process.

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 Commerce City, 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.

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.
