I am a licensed clinical social worker who graduated from the University of Denver in 2007. Since graduating I have worked in a variety of settings with a wide range of clients from children to adults.

I have special training in counseling those who have been through traumatic experiences both in school and in trainings since. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic and client centered techniques. More importantly, I believe in therapy being a collaborative process and I will work with you to provide the help that you need. My goal is to make this the most useful space for you as possible.

Hi! I'm Megan. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) as well as a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and I am here to help you! I bring with me 10 years of counseling experience. I earned my BS from Colorado State University in Human Development and Family Studies in 2003 and I earned my MA in Counseling and Human Services from the University of Colorado in 2005. I use an integrative approach to Mental Health and Overall Wellness using coaching methods and interventions that encourage the balance of mind, body and soul. I merge mindfulness coaching, life coaching and cognitive behavioral therapy to treat individuals seeking help with anxiety, emotional regulation, stress relief, life transitions, and coping skills. I am warm, quirky and supportive. I love a good laugh. It brings me joy to help others realize their potential and feel EMPOWERED. I believe in balance and moderation. I believe that we are ALL capable of changing things that are less than desirable in our lives. I believe we all have the potential to be better and sometimes we just need an advocate to hold us accountable, give a different perspective and be our cheerleader. My belief that everyone is unique guides my individualized approach with clients. What works for one person may not necessarily work for another, so a big part of this process is figuring out what works best for YOU – from the type of overall therapeutic intervention to details like self-care or life choices. This may require you to do some “work” between sessions (Examples of assignments may include journaling or focusing on your breath). That being said, I like to focus on progress, not perfection. I will help you take some of the pressure off of trying to be perfect-in-every-way all the time. Sometimes it will still hurt. Sometimes you will be scared. Sometimes you will trip and be mad at me. But each time, I will be there to help you refocus and get back on your feet. It takes courage to seek help for a more fulfilling and happy life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

I have a Master's Degree in Clinical Counseling from University of Northern Colorado. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor as well as a Licensed Addictions Counselor. Since 2011, I have worked in community mental health providing treatment for clients who are facing issues with depression, anxiety, PTSD, substance abuse, bipolar disorder, and relationship problems. I teach people skills that can assist in managing intrusive thoughts that can lead to depression and anxiety. I enjoy helping clients find ways to improve their lives and watching their personal growth during the course of treatment. I listen to people's struggles and try to help them find ways to learn to cope with, change, or improve their situation in order to help people move forward with their lives. Because I also have a background in treating addiction, I am happy to help provide guidance and support around those facing this very difficult issue. I have run DBT groups for 6 years and it's a framework that I use in individual counseling as well. I find it incredibly helpful for people to have a set of healthy coping skills to manage their stressors. I tend to meet clients where they're at so we an work together to help them move forward and meet their goals. Outside of being a therapist, I enjoy reading, running, and hiking. These are some of the ways I practice my own self care. I enjoy being able to challenge myself to read more books and run more miles! I look forward to working with you to help you feel happier, healthier, and stronger.

Hi, Welcome to my "intro!" That you're reading this most likely means you feel your life could be better in some way, and you're looking for some help in making that happen. Way to go! That takes some courage and initiative to take a positive step-- not just "settle." My name is June. I'm a licensed professional counselor and a certified addiction counselor, based in Colorado. I also have experience and expertise working with issues of trauma, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, important transitions in life, and relationship difficulties. Sometimes a person doesn't have a specific problem such as one of those, but just feels that life could be better in some way. She may be seeking better self-awareness. He may believe he has a purpose in life that he hasn't yet identified, and would like some help in getting insight into that. She may have come to believe "This job isn't right for me," but now would like some guidance in figuring out "So what is?" Also, this is a very different and troubling time for all of us. You may have lost your job due to a cover-related shutdown. You may be worried about getting sick. Or you may be worried about someone you love who has become ill. You may feel anxious about what will happen --next week, or next month, or next year. I can help with all of that. If something from this profile sounds like what you'd like, I'd love to work with you.

Welcome! My name is James Cameron, a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (LPC-S) in the state of Texas and LPC in Colorado. In addition to holding another license in Texas and a national license. I have been privileged to work with people through a wide range of concerns both personal and professional. Beyond the supervision and instruction required for licensure several opportunities to study and learn from leaders in the field, both in America and internationally, have come my way. I started my licensed journey in 1999 and have continued growing skills ever since then. Looking forward to serving you. My therapy style involves treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. Labels, while good to provide broad ideas of issues, do little to express your individual situation. Once established your services will be tailored to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to the privilege of working with you!

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Firestone. 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 Firestone, 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 Firestone 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.

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Firestone 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 Firestone 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 Firestone 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 Firestone, 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 Firestone 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 Firestone 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 Firestone 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 Firestone 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 Firestone 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 80520 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 Firestone 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 Firestone 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 Firestone, 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.

Firestone 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.
