Welcome - When you're struggling, it can be exciting to dream of a better future - and also hard to think of making real changes. You might want your life to be better but aren’t yet sure how to make it happen. Or maybe life's given you news and you must adapt, either after a big loss or to respond to the behaviors of others. Making the next set of choices can be very important if you want life to improve again; finding the right therapist to help sort things out can be a relief. My Experience: I'm a Marriage and Family Therapist, fully licensed to practice in both Colorado and California. I have over 15 years experience as a therapist, in both Private Practice and Community Mental Health. I earned my Master's degree in Counselor Education with an emphasis in Marriage, Family and Child Counseling from California State University at Sacramento. My experience includes working with individuals healing through anxiety, depression, trauma, range of relationship issues, as well as self esteem and other personal growth issues. I work with clients who are working on managing life's stresses and changes, workplace and career decisions, addiction, grief & loss and the large and small frustrations of life. My approach: I tend to be compassionate, grounded, goal-oriented, and client-centered. I use Solution Focused therapy, Client Centered Therapy, with an eye on interpersonal relationships and always considering phases of life. I help my clients set a focus on what's needing to change in their lives and working toward better understanding of themselves and others. I'm grateful that my clients often report feeling more clear and at peace once we've talked things through. I often observe my clients taking action and making new decisions during and after our counseling. Over the years, I’ve served incredibly diverse clientele, including all ages, and a range of cultures, sexual orientations and across the gender spectrum, from all walks of life in their countless moments of need, vulnerability, triumph and growth. As a result, I have deep compassion for the complexities of being human. I truly understand how powerful confidential therapy can be for healing, growth and transformation. I hope to talk with you so you can decide if I might be of support to you.

Hello! My name is Melanie Hotz, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) licensed in Colorado with over 10 years of experience working with adults. I have a Bachelors's degree in General Psychology with a minor in Criminal Justice; I graduated with a Master's degree in Clinical Counseling from the University of Northern Colorado in 2008. I use Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) with a Person-Centered approach; I utilize mindfulness techniques along with CBT to help one learn tools to help manage uncomfortable emotions. I strive to meet clients where they are and adjust therapy to meet the needs of my client. I have experience with clients struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, and adjusting to changes in life. We all have a dialogue going on in our minds every day, many times we are not aware of how this "self-talk" affects our mood and choices in life. Using CBT I help clients become more aware of what they are telling themselves, how it affects them, and how to shift negative thoughts to be more neutral or positive. Therapy is hard, but I am here to help you achieve your goals. I can't do it for you, but I can be here to support you as you journey through the rough roads in life and hopefully help you get to the smoother road ahead, or find better equipment for the rough spots. I look forward to meeting you! Melanie

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Crook 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 Crook 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 Crook 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 Crook, 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 Crook 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'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Crook helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Crook therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

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 Crook 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 Crook 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.

If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 80726 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 Crook 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 Crook 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 Crook, 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.

Crook 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.
