Congratulations for taking the first step toward better health and well-being. My name is Stephanie Jordan and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Colorado with over twenty years of experience as a therapist. I graduated from the University of Washington with an MSW and I have worked as a therapist in many settings including schools, inpatient treatment hospitals for eating disorders and outpatient clinics. I am highly experienced in treating eating disorders, however I also treat depression, anxiety, grief and loss, trauma family and relationship issues and life changes and adjustments. I am both a relational and directive therapist. Establishing trust and a therapeutic bond is always where I begin. Letting you know that you are heard, validated, understood and cared for is always the starting point. Once trust is established, I like to offer sessions that include specific and tangible action steps toward meeting our established goals. My theoretical approach is often based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), however I do not subscribe to a “one size fits all” approach to treatment. Together we will determine what modalities and interventions are the best for you and your individualized treatment plan. I am a believer in an empowerment model, meaning I know that you have the strength within you to conquer and/or achieve whatever you are facing or aspiring to. My role is to assist you in connecting to that inner strength and confidence. My practice welcomes and respects everyone regardless of race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, age or ability. I am an extremely inclusive therapist and individual. I am honored every day to be a part of my clients’ journeys toward feeling better physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Thank you for taking the time to review my profile and I look forward to working with you.

Hello, I will give you my utmost respect and encouragement throughout the therapy process. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have a Masters in Mental Health Counseling from Montana State University - Billings. I have worked for several mental health agencies including working in schools and on a college campus. I have taught undergraduate and graduate courses in psychology and counseling at the university level. I have supervised graduate interns on their hours towards licensing and supervised an outpatient therapy department. I have also been a campus counselor helping college students with their personal growth and relationship issues. Having "hope" is one of the most important motivators to overcome life challenges. Finding "hope" can immediately change one's mood from despair to peace. I have significant experience working with anxiety, depression, stress, low self-esteem, motivation, finding purpose, and life transitions. I believe that you are the expert on you, but we all need help to move through this life. I will offer you support, encouragement, an outside perspective, and space to explore productive options to get your life heading in the right direction and most importantly finding "hope". While life presents challenges, I believe that you are fundamentally strong and resilient. I would like to partner with you on your journey. Please reach out and let's see if we'd be a good fit together.

ABOUT ME: Hello! So glad you’re here! My career path has not been traditional. It took many different twists and turns in the corporate and commercial world before I found my place as a counselor and therapist. My professional life experiences have expanded the knowledge and understanding I’m able to incorporate into helping you recognize, address, resolve, or just alleviate your life problems along with your wants, needs, or concerns. And, sometimes, it’s just a matter of having someone to talk to that will listen. That’s ok too! I am licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist (MT2839) in the State of Florida, a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (8160) in North Carolina, a Licensed Professional Counselor In Colorado (LPC.0019501), a National Certified Counselor (NCC), and have been Certified in Telehealth, Grief Counseling, and Trauma. I earned my master’s degree in counseling from California State University and my undergraduate degree from the University of Colorado in Interpersonal Communication with an emphasis in Psychology. My work has included a broad spectrum of culturally diverse populations that include adults, adolescents, children, and families. The venues have included military installations (worldwide), homeless shelters for women and teens, community mental health centers, private practice, family services, along with a mental health crisis center. Within these settings I have worked with the kind of personal problems and challenges that so many of us face daily -- that are at once shared as part of our common humanity and yet are uniquely and individually our own. I’m here to help you resolve the issues and concerns that are impacting your life, your goals, your relationships. Let me help. SPECIALTIES: Relationship Issues, Trauma, Self esteem, Grief, Coping with life changes. Also experienced in: Addictions, physical and/or sexual abuse, personality disorders, depression, stress, and anxiety. Clinical Approaches: My base approach to individual therapy is client centered. However, depending on the needs of the individual client therapy may integrate solution focused, cognitive behavioral (CBT), motivational interviewing and/or other theoretical practices depending on what best serves you as my client. In family counseling my preference is a systems approach. Years of Experience: 16 + years

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 Kim. 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 Kim, 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 Kim 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 Kim 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 Kim, elsewhere in Las Animas, 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 Kim area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Kim 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 Kim 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 Kim 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 Kim, 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 Kim 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 Kim 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 Kim 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 Kim 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 Kim 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 81049 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 Kim 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 Kim 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 Kim, 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.

Kim 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.
