16 years of experience

I am a Clinical Mental Health Therapist with over 16 years of experience working with children, adolescents, adults and families in community mental health, educational and private practice settings. Prior to that, I spent 20 years in pastoral ministry. I completed my Masters in Counseling Psychology in 2008 from Northwestern Oklahoma State University, and soon after moved to Northwest New Mexico/Southwest Colorado. My professional experience includes: Administrator of a Residential Treatment Center, Clinical Administrator for Children's Behavioral Health, Student Assistance Coordinator for a school district, Visiting Professor at a School of Social Work, Private Practice, Outpatient Clinical Manager, Health Services Coordinator for a school district, and Integrated Behavioral Health Provider in a family medical practice setting. In addition to working with high risk/high needs children and adolescents, I work primarily with trauma as well as anxiety and depression. I also serve as a Certified First Responder Counselor. My counseling approach is collaborative and skill based from the perspective that people aren't "broken" and need to be "fixed" and instead are seeking to improve their lives to be stronger and healthier. My role then becomes a guide and companion on the alternative life journey that people choose. The first step on your new journey has been taken by reaching out for help. I look forward to traveling along that journey with you for a while.

Welcome, and thank you for connecting! I have 22 years of counseling experience with families, adults, and teens in community mental health. I have lived in Wyoming for 25 years, have 2 teenage children, earned my Master of Social Work degree from the University of New Hampshire in 2001, and was fully licensed to begin counseling practice in WY in 2002. I have a full work history over this time with individual adults and teens, groups, couples, and families in brief and longer-term practice. I have also been a Clinical Program Supervisor, Emergency Services Counselor in clinic and hospital settings, and am a Certified Mental Health Educator and Trainer. Process counseling in grief, trauma, stress, anxiety, adjustment, communication, relationships, drug and alcohol issues, and depression have been my focus. I have trained in the Best Practices of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Motivational Interviewing (MI), American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM). I have developed a practice that focuses on a person's strengths using Brief Solution-Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. There are many factors and layers that contribute to feeling unsteady and a desire for change. My training emphasizes understanding how our emotions, thoughts, and behaviors impact each other and how a connection to a healthy body and choices effects most everything we do. Therapy is a learning process for both of us: education, understanding, setting goals, and practice...you will want a warm, interactive, and inviting relationship with a counselor to walk through these changes with and I can provide that. ◉ Here are a few nuts and bolts about scheduling: ► You can find my schedule here on the BH platform, it is set for the month. ► The listed days and times available are issued in your time zone, as they relate to my schedule availability. See if it works for your schedule. ► If you do not see days and times that work for you, please give me a few different options that do work, I will see if I can accommodate them. ► Book a 30 minute appointment, which is all you can book. I will add an additional 30 minutes on the back end for a 50-minute hour. You may also book 30 minute sessions. ► Scheduling to meet by phone or video, at least one time each week for 4-6 weeks, is my recommendation to get started. The site allows you to book only 60 minutes per week of phone/video time. ►You have the ability to message back and forth during the week any concerns or insights. There is a journal, worksheets, and groupinars that can be great resources for education and support. ►Asking directly for interventions that you feel work for you can be helpful. I look forward to working with you…

Are you feeling trapped in a cycle of frustration, with hope slipping away? I hear you. It can be incredibly disheartening to feel stuck in a cycle of frustrations and challenges, and it's completely normal to question whether things will ever get better. But please know that you don't have to face this journey alone. As a licensed professional counselor, I am here to provide you with the support and tools you need to break free from these patterns and discover a path toward healing and growth. From a young age, I have been deeply driven to make a difference in the lives of others. This calling has taken various forms throughout my journey over the past two decades, including teaching, serving as a school counselor, and coaching and developing individuals as a school principal. Through these diverse experiences, I have witnessed firsthand the profound impact that unsupported mental health challenges can have on overall well-being. My passion for helping others has led me to a realization: without a strong foundation of mental health and well-being, even if all the other aspects of life seem to align, individuals cannot fully engage in a fulfilling and peaceful journey. It is this realization that has fueled my commitment to becoming a licensed professional counselor. Throughout my education and professional journey, I have observed the transformative power of addressing and supporting mental health. I firmly believe that by tending to our mental well-being, we unlock the potential for true happiness and create the necessary conditions for a meaningful life. It is my mission to guide and empower individuals on this path of self-discovery and healing. As a licensed professional counselor in Colorado, I am committed to creating a safe and supportive space for you to explore your inner world, overcome challenges, and cultivate the resilience necessary to navigate life's inevitable ups and downs. Drawing from my extensive background in education, counseling, and coaching, I offer a holistic and comprehensive approach to your well-being. With a deep understanding of various areas of struggle, including stress and anxiety, depression, parenting issues, motivation, self-esteem, confidence, and career difficulties, I am privileged to have helped numerous clients along their unique journeys of growth and healing. My approach is rooted in respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I understand that each individual is unique, with their own set of experiences and needs. That's why I believe in tailoring our dialogue and treatment plan specifically to you. By taking the time to truly understand your concerns, goals, and values, we can create a customized approach that aligns with your unique circumstances. Are you ready to connect via live video sessions, engage in interactive activities, and receive continuous support—all from the comfort of your own home? I firmly believe in the transformative impact of online therapy. Through live video sessions, messaging support, and interactive worksheets, we can create a therapeutic experience that enables you to progress towards your goals at your own pace, in a way that feels comfortable and supportive. Through live video sessions, we can connect face-to-face in a virtual setting, ensuring a meaningful and personal connection. But our online therapy goes beyond that. With messaging support throughout the week, you'll have continuous guidance and support as you navigate your challenges, providing comfort and reassurance when you need it most. Interactive worksheets will also play a vital role in our sessions. They can help you develop and reinforce the strategies and insights we discuss, providing a practical roadmap for positive change. By actively engaging with these worksheets, you'll have a tangible tool to guide your journey of growth and healing. Are you ready to rewrite your story, embrace your authentic self, and embark on a transformative journey of personal empowerment? In my counseling practice, I combine multicultural therapy and narrative therapy to create a supportive and inclusive environment.

We also examine how external factors contribute to challenges, challenging dominant narratives and empowering you to reclaim control over your own story.

In our collaborative sessions, we delve into the connection between thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Through gentle exploration, we challenge and replace negative thoughts with realistic and positive ones, transforming how you perceive and respond to challenges. CBT equips you with a toolkit of practical skills, such as relaxation techniques and effective problem-solving, enabling you to regain control over your emotions and behaviors.

In our therapy sessions, we will work together to explore your desired outcomes and the steps necessary to achieve them.

Reach out today to embark on this journey of growth and well-being. Ready to go beyond the professional facade? Want a counselor who's more than just a title? I believe that authenticity and connection are essential in the therapeutic journey. So, let's get real! In addition to being a dedicated counselor, I am a wife, mother, and friend. Life outside the therapy room is filled with various hobbies and interests that bring me joy. Traveling is one of my passions, as it allows me to explore new cultures and gain fresh perspectives. When I'm not on an adventure, I find solace in interior design, creating spaces that reflect warmth and comfort. You'll often find me immersed in a good book, taking in the wisdom and stories that unfold within its pages. Playing at the lake or hiking in nature rejuvenates my soul, reminding me of the beauty and tranquility that surrounds us. And yes, I confess, I have a terrible but enthusiastic love for cooking, always trying new recipes (with varying degrees of success). One of my quirks is creating my own idioms, often stumbling upon humorous combinations that deviate from the norm. Laughter is integral to my life, and I embrace my inner nerdiness, cracking jokes and inventing new words like "passionation" to describe my deep passion and fascination with understanding how people learn and develop into their authentic selves. Now, despite my laundry list of Pinterest-worthy hobbies, let me be honest with you – life is messy, challenging, and often far from perfect. As a mother, I've experienced the juggling act of raising children while pursuing a fulfilling career. Trust me, my kids were probably late to school more often than not (I can't blame the bus driver for that one!). Amidst my academic achievements, what I'm most proud of is embracing the multifaceted nature of life. Life is a wild adventure, a mix of stress and beauty, precious and fleeting. I've learned to sit with all its facets without judging myself too harshly. And that's the wisdom I bring to our counseling sessions – an understanding that we are all imperfectly human, navigating this journey together. Are you ready to rewrite your story, embrace your authentic self, and embark on a transformative journey of healing and personal growth? Let's walk this path together, forging a new narrative of empowerment, self-discovery, and lasting transformation. Take the first step towards a fulfilling and joyful life aligned with your truest self. Reach out today, and let's begin this transformative and authentic experience together.

I am licensed in Colorado and Louisiana with 4 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with LGBTQIA2 related issues, family conflicts, ADHD issues, & career difficulties. Let me explain a little more about these areas of focus. I have training within systems and family conflicts due to my license of being an LMFT, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I am skilled in recognizing patterns; most of my clients and families have told me this during our work together. I have experience working with people of the LGBTQIA2 community and helping individuals and families navigate their sexuality or gender identity. Another area in which I am passionate about is helping individuals who have been clinically diagnosed with ADHD move through a world in a more ADHD friendly manner. Let's work with your brain rather than against it. Lastly, in regards to career matters the way in which I often find myself helping clients is related to matters such as boundary setting and work life balance. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. As we spend more time together on your mental health journey you will notice that I value laughter and often this is found in my sessions. Have you heard of the statement you can give someone a fish and feed them for a day or you can teach them to fish and feed them for a lifetime? That viewpoint is a visual example of how in therapy the work is helping you, the person reading my bio, learn how to interact in a healthier and more sustainable way rather than providing you direct answers. With that being said, it takes courage and immense amount of bravery to seek out a more fulfilling and authentic life by taking the first steps towards a change. I am here to support, challenge, and empower you in that journey.

How to find counseling in Denver

Finding the best therapist close by in Denver can feel challenging, but know that once you narrow your search for a counselor serving your area, you can find a therapist in your city that is accepting new clients and fits your goals. Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, marriage, family issues, or other emotional challenges, feel proud that you have begun your search to find the mental health care services that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Denver. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders. If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in Denver, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Denver or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns. They may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

There are all kinds of therapists working with clients today across the United States and in the greater Denver area in different types of therapy, including:

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

When you're ready to start your search and find therapists, have in mind what type of therapy you'd like your provider to be most experienced with and choose an experienced provider with a practice located near you in the city of Denver, elsewhere in Denver, or in the greater state of Colorado.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Denver 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 Denver 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 Denver 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 Denver, 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 Denver 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 Denver 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 Denver 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.

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

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 Denver 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 Denver 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 80212 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 Denver 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 Denver 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 Denver, 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.

Denver 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.
