I work with adults who are having a difficult time dealing with anxiety, depression, grief, and major transitions within their day to day lives. Knowing how life is constantly throwing us curve balls, I look towards each issue with an evidence-based approach, and do my best to view it from all perspectives. My primary goal is to work with adults within the community to accompany them on their path of growth to better themselves and their skills. I know the importance of creating a safe and accepting place for someone to come and express their thoughts, as well as emotions. Developing strong trust, and working together as a team is my philosophy in order to truly gain the skills we need to get passed difficult times. I take a holistic approach to therapy, using strategies such as cognitive behavioral therapy, play therapy, art therapy, as well as mindfulness.

The issues I work with in therapy are mind-body issues. I do not have a mental illness approach. What is good for the body is good for the brain and vice versa. My openness and inclusivity influence my approach to therapy. I do not judge. I accept. I am more interested in your uniqueness than your diagnosis and I expect a full recovery in treatment. I specialize in the spectrum of Depression and Mood Disorders, Anxiety treatments, and Trauma. I offer natural and behavioral treatments that have been shown through research to perform as well as, better than, and/or improve anti-depressants. Research has shown that the fit between counselor and client is one of the most significant contributors to a person's success in therapy. I cant guarantee that I will be the best fit. I can say that I am not afraid to go wherever counseling takes us. Please reach out and we will work together to raise the quality of life

Have you ever wondered to yourself, "what is wrong with me?" or "How come I can't get better?" or "Why can't I snap out of it?" Well, you are not alone. Many people have these thoughts and making it more difficult for you is that people see you as a "problem". I want to point out to you that there is nothing wrong with you, you are not a problem and that the struggles that you are having are just challenges that need to be worked through. Now these challenges will not be fixed over night and will take some time. This is where I come in. I attended Columbia University School of Social Work and have been a social worker for over 23 years. My focus is clinical practice and use a variety of clinical approaches to work with the challenges associated with the above and other emotional distress experienced by my clients. My modality focus tends to be a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Humanistic Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy. Now how does this apply to you? Well, I can tell you that first of all that is shows incredible strength to want, show up, and engage in treatment. We will start with a basic assessment so that I can get to know you better and then we will develop treatment goals of your choosing so that we have a focus. We will then work on a variety of clinical interventions that apply to your situation. This will take some time and I always like to say to my clients "Keep going. We will get through this together." The amount of sessions vary depending on the circumstances. I have had clients as short as 8 sessions and some for several years. Though treatment does not guarantee success, I have had many successful outcomes with clients like you. If what I say interests you and would like to pursue treatment further with me, reach out to me. I look forward to hearing from and working with you. Let's get started!

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

You can also try a Glenwood Springs 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.

A Glenwood Springs therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Glenwood Springs 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 Glenwood Springs 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 Glenwood Springs, 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.

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.
