My intention as a Counselor is to be present and compassionate with someone who is courageous enough to choose to change their life for the better. I can assist you to feel more in control, have increased self-understanding and insight, and realize that looking at the challenge directly is much easier than avoiding it. This can give you the opportunity to be able to tell the truth and feel heard and understood. This will lead to feeling more hopeful, and optimistic that things can change. I am a great coach and counselor for that. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who has practiced in Colorado and Hawaii for 28 years. I have worked with all ages , diagnoses, and concerns, and my specialties are in trauma resolution, stress, depression, and anxiety. People feel safe with me and find it easy to open up and receive support. I have a calming presence and can give you tools to apply that can immediately make a difference with the symptoms you may be experiencing. It gives me joy to assist someone to feel more empowered and more in charge of their life. Being able to find your inner guidance and know what you really feel and want and get help to achieve that is a game changer. I believe every session provides the possibility of a breakthrough even when confronting painful issues. I always try to end on a positive note, with ideas of how to move forward. I can consult on many topics of concern, including medical, psychiatric, alternative healthcare, and self care as I am also an RN. My passion is in studying healing, and love Neuroscience and the latest brain research and what really is important to heal our moods and to self regulate. I am an EMDR trained therapist and use EFT as well. I am qualified to teach mindfulness, meditation, and can draw on Spiritual traditions that are such a resource in healing. I would be honored to talk to you about what concerns you.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Colorado, specializing in grief and loss, trauma, and crisis intervention. I was licensed in 1992 and since then I have worked in hospitals, private practice and several agencies, including Community Reach Center Mobile Crisis Unit, Denver Rescue Mission, and All-Health Network. As a crisis counselor/first responder, I support people after hurricanes, mass shootings, bank robberies, corporate downsizings and natural disasters.

But I can walk beside you as a guide, mentor and encourager. Together, we can look at your situation and consider how things came to be as they are and how we can address the issues that are holding you back. I believe that each person was made for a special purpose but sometimes life issues can get us off track. My desire is to help you become all that you were created to be. I look forward to meeting you and working together in the days ahead.

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

While many psychologists in Frederick 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.

If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

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

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

Frederick 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 Frederick 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 Frederick 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.

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 Frederick counselor?

Before seeing your Frederick 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 Frederick.

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 Frederick 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 Frederick 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 Frederick, 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.

Frederick 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.
