15 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a licensed counselor in both Montana and Colorado. I graduated from Montana State University in 2008 with a masters degree in Marriage and Family Counseling. I have been providing therapy services for over 10 years and have experience in multiple settings. While much of my experience has been with kids and young adults, I also have a great deal of experience in family therapy, as well as providing parents support and coaching through difficult situations. I also have a great deal of experience in helping those going through transitions including, but not limited to, grief and loss, divorce, changes in careers, and children going off to college. I am also experienced in working with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, and anger management issues. I also have a background in working with survivors of abuse and other traumatic events. My counseling style is very open, meeting people where they are at. Therapy can be very difficult and people entering therapy may feel very vulnerable. Thus, I like to try to help my clients feel comfortable and supported throughout the process. Compassion and sensitivity are key to my counseling style and I strive to ensure that my clients feel accepted throughout the counseling process. My counseling approach is a combination of cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral, person-centered, and reality-based therapy. I often adjust my counseling style to fit each individual, their therapy goals, and current needs. It takes a great deal of bravery to engage in the self-exploration process and make the changes needed to become the best version of you that you can be. If you are ready to start this process, I would love to be able to support and assist you in your journey to self-discovery, realization, and resiliency.

Stress in its many forms is an inevitable part of life, and there will be waves. So I say, if you gotta ride the waves, you might as well choose your surfboard. Unfortunately people aren’t usually taught what to do when the waves come, and I hope to guide and support you as you learn to surf. I may be a therapist, but I’m a human first; I just know different things and ask different types of questions. I believe great therapy relies primarily on the relationship, and so I’ll make it a priority for you to feel comfortable, accepted, and emotionally safe. And even though therapy can and should be tough at times, my hope is that you’ll laugh and smile a little on the way. Officially a family therapist, I always have the overall system in mind and believe that everything and everyone influences everything and everyone else. Problems in relationships, diagnoses, and internal struggles are often manifestations of reactions to stress. I’ll help you understand what’s happening in the brain when you are triggered and teach you a set of skills to help you to think clearly, be your best self, and make good decisions you can be proud of, even when stressed. I have worked in a variety of environments, with people of all ages, and with many different presenting problems, including those rooted in trauma. Aside from working plenty with adults, supporting children and families gives me a unique perspective and experience to help you in your current stage of life’s journey. As a therapist, I utilize models such as solution-focused, cognitive behavioral therapy, family systems, and trauma-informed approaches, all present-centered and strengths-based. I offer you a relationship and experience that may help you access quick solutions and become more effective in all other relationships – with yourself, with others, with life. Not only will I bear witness to your life experience as an objective, yet understanding and empathic third party, I will also help you identify, access, and act upon your values – what is truly most important to you. I commend you for taking this step, it’s not an easy one. Know this – small steps can leave significant footprints.

I have always been dedicated to working with people of all ages to promote personal, mental, professional, and overall wellness. Over the past six years I have worked with children, young adults, families, and adults in a variety of settings. The mix of populations with which I have worked has given me experience with those with different challenges: depression and anxiety, LGBTQ+ identities, sexuality concerns, mood disorders, healing from trauma, ADHD, ADD, Autistic Spectrum disorder, and many others. I use an eclectic approach in therapy which includes as well as solution centered, mindfulness, and CBT. The goal is always to work together to find a method that works best for you. For some there is a specific event that brings them to seek therapy, but I believe that is not always the case. Life can be challenging and having an unbiased ear to listen or exploring opportunities for personal growth can be an excellent benefit to engaging in therapy. The ability to provide telehealth options for people is making therapeutic services more accessible than ever. Taking the steps to engage in therapy is a gigantic and, sometimes, scary step. I thank you for considering having me join you on this journey and I look forward to working with you.

The techniques I use include: Gestalt Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Behavioral Activation Technique (BAT), Person Centered Recovery Planning (PCRP), Feminist Psychology, Multicultural, and intersectionality perspectives, Psychodrama and improv therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Solution Based Therapy, somatic, dance, and movement therapies, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Trauma Reprocessing Method, mindfulness, and nature-based therapy.

Patients say that I am compassionate, personable, and effective. My focus is to understand your needs and hopes, to help you touch the places that are bothering you with compassion and empathy, and help those places integrate towards wholeness, peace, and acceptance.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Kit Carson region and in the state of Colorado. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Kit Carson or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Kit Carson 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 Kit Carson 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 Kit Carson 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 Kit Carson 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 Kit Carson?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Kit Carson 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.

Kit Carson 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 Kit Carson 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 Kit Carson 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 80825 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 Kit Carson counselor?

Before seeing your Kit Carson 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 Kit Carson.

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 Kit Carson 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 Kit Carson 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 Kit Carson, 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.

Kit Carson 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.
