Fountain, Colorado is in the heart of El Paso County and is only 10 miles south of Colorado Springs. Some of the major points of interest in the city include Cheyenne Mountain State Park, with hiking, biking, camping, and picnicking; Fountain Creek Regional Park, that has 460 acres of trails, fields, ponds, and picnic spots; and the Big Johnson Reservoir, which is a large open space with a 280-acre lake. 

While many people feel like getting closer to nature is healing, others may need more than just a trip to the beach or a weekend camping trip. Some folks need to talk to someone who understands such as a therapist or counselor to help with their emotional needs. Fountain has plenty of dedicated professionals experienced in helping with these issues.

My name is Wendy Benedict, and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Colorado. I earned my Master of Social Work degree, specializing in family theories, from Newman University in 2007. I've worked in many different settings with individuals and families who have a variety of personal issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, PTSD/trauma/abuse, addiction, family and relationship issues, and so much more. Over the past 11 years as a clinician, I have learned the most important aspect of therapy is building respect and working together as a team. I believe you are the expert of your life. I am here to help guide you through your current life struggles. I believe this is possible by building your self-awareness, learning to challenge distorted beliefs, offering an outside perspective and offering support to decrease feeling stuck. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I do not believe in using stigmatizing labels. My therapeutic approach combines cognitive-behavioral, DBT, motivational interviewing and solution focused counseling. We will work together to create a treatment plan to meet your specific needs. I believe it is an honor to be able to work with my clients. I understand it is difficult to trust a stranger. I believe in being non-judgmental and I am able to be open-minded when someone is allowing themselves to be vulnerable with me in therapy. It would be my privilege to be that person for you. You are always welcome to message me through Better Help at any time. This flexibility will offer you access to work through your day to day more frequently than traditional outpatient behavioral health care. I generally will check messages at least three times each day Monday through Saturday. I will not check emails on Sundays. I offer messaging, live chat and phone sessions with limited availability in the mornings, afternoons, evenings and on Saturdays. Please note if my schedule does not fit your needs please message me and we can see if we can work out a time that works for the both of us. 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 working with you!

32 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hello! I’m a Colorado Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in private practice since 1992. My practice is limited to adults. My theoretical orientation is in humanistic psychology, with training in cognitive-behavioral methods and solution-focused therapy. The merger of these methods means that I’m quite effective with people who want to discover their core strengths and core values and use them to achieve positive change in a variety of areas. Depression and anxiety, communication issues, self-esteem, grief and loss, recovery from unhappy or unhealthy relationships, better choice-making, transitions of all types and women’s self-emmpowerment are among my areas of experience. My personal philosophy of therapy is that it is a garden in which we grow the roots and blossoms of individual potential – those innate and unique gifts, talents and “superpowers” that each of us is born with but have not yet fully cultivated. Once these aspects of self are identified, they can become allies in the healing process. To that end, the watering can in my therapeutic toolshed is journal therapy, which I define as the intentional and purposeful use of life-based writing for healing, growth and change. I have helped to pioneer this field since 1985, when I was a first-year counseling graduate student. Client outcomes demonstrate that insight, clarity and positive outcomes come more quickly and easily when a journal is used as a companion in the therapeutic experience. I love my work and have happily juggled being a therapist, a teacher/trainer and an author for over 30 years. My first book, Journal to the Self, was released in 1990 and was an immediate best-seller. It is now considered a classic in the field. My 13th book, Journal Therapy for Calming Anxiety, was released in June 2020.

I am dually licensed in Colorado and Florida with 28 years of experience as a LCSW. I have worked with clients to address stress and anxiety, motivation, self-esteem and confidence, life transitions, and depression. I am a Trauma-Sensitive Heartmath® Certified Practitioner and have been trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) which I have used with clients who’ve experienced a wide range of traumas. I believe that an underlying root of many problems humans face is a dysregulated nervous system that causes the mind, body, and emotions to become overwhelmed. In response, we either shut down or experience too much angst and can no longer confidently hear and follow our own voice. Along with working to understand your challenges from your unique point of view, I will support you in learning how to regulate your nervous system so that you can have better access to constructive thoughts and emotions, restore your body to a state of health and well-being, and make decisions in your life from a place of self-confidence and empowerment. There is nothing off limits in our discussion as all aspects of self are welcome. You are brave and courageous for reaching out for support, and I am honored to be part of your healing journey. Let me share in the privilege of walking beside you to reflect more deeply and authentically, understand yourself and your gifts and challenges more clearly, find solutions that come from within you (which means they will work best), and feel restored and reconnected.

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

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

  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300

While many psychologists in Fountain 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.

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Fountain 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.

Fountain therapists 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 Fountain 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 Fountain 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 psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in CO, therapists 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 80817 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your Fountain 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 Fountain.

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 Fountain 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 Fountain counselor 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 that a counselor can help with.

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 Fountain, 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.

Fountain 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 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.
