4 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, licensed in Colorado, with a graduate degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have 4 years of experience in the therapeutic space; assisting, guiding, joining and believing in my clients to reach their goals and potential. I have lived my professional career over the last 14 years, in wonder and amazement at the true power that comes from believing in our worth as humans. With this wonder, comes a heartbeat that grows louder everyday to lead humans back to the basics of their true selves when throughout life, others have convinced and conditioned them to believe they must be more, or less, but never enough. I want to teach people what's right with them, as they have been hearing for years all that is 'wrong' with them. I want to assist you in changing the language around who you are and what you're here for. We continue to swim in a sea of dysfunctional systems of capitalism, racism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, patriarchy, and misogyny, all oppressed by the same ideas and beliefs that place us in confusion. This life isn't easy. This life is really painful at times, and we need our people to remind us of our worth in the midst of it all and that we can feel everything and still be okay. I desire fully, to assist you in coming back home to yourself, to the personhood of your body as he/she/or they have been carrying you through the chaos and pain of your life. I use an eclectic approach to therapy, centering you as the focus. I see through a psychodynamic lens and help you answer the 'why's' to life that are uniquely yours to answer. I will never claim to know your answers, but I will lead you back to the only one that can formulate one- again.. which is yourself. My work isn't super brief but I am passionate about the work we can do together. I look forward to joining you in your journey!

Hi! Welcome to BetterHelp! I want to thank you for viewing my profile and for making the courageous decision to talk to a professional for support during, what I can imagine, must be a difficult time in your life. Choosing the right therapist can seem like an overwhelming process when there are so many incredible and very qualified professionals on this site; however, making sure that you find the right fit for you and your situation can be one of the most important decisions at the beginning of your journey. So, to help make this decision a bit easier for you, I want to introduce myself and explain a little bit about what you can expect if you choose me to help you along the way! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Clinical Professional Counselor, and Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor currently living in Las Vegas, Nevada with over 15 years of experience working as a therapist, counselor, life coach, caseworker, mentor, and intern supervisor. I have worked in many different settings throughout the course of my education and career, from inpatient behavioral health settings to forensics settings with court-ordered clients, long-term care facilities, private practice, and more. During this time, I have had the privilege of helping a variety of people identify core issues, develop healthy coping skills, and heal from deep wounds they once never believed possible. Something I like my clients to know is that you are in the driver’s seat! This is your life and your treatment. You know yourself better than anyone else. You know what has been helpful in the past and what has been unhelpful. We will spend time getting to know you. We can then build upon that knowledge to develop a personally tailored treatment plan to address the issues that you determine to be a priority in your life. I plan on assisting you with compassion, empathy, and directness to help you meet your personal goals. I am a very client-centered therapist, so if you would like me to apply a specific treatment method or technique, please let me know, otherwise, I tend to use an eclectic mix. I typically apply a great deal of CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) throughout our time together, which can be very helpful if we notice that some underlying sources of your identified issues may stem from thinking errors. I also have experience with DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), including emotional regulation skills, communication techniques, grounding skills, and mindfulness which can be very helpful in improving interpersonal relationships and emotional regulation. Ultimately, what you can expect from working with me is a safe, compassionate, and supportive space for you to work through whatever you want help with. I’m really looking forward to meeting you!

Every day, people go through hard times, breakups, divorces, grief, and the loss of a friend, animal, or loved one, the loss of a job, etc., and we all need help from an unbiased person for aid and support in these and other areas of concern. When it comes to Trauma, I believe it is an exciting part of life; one is not expecting it, and you barely understand it. But now, you can deal with and overcome it healthily and professionally. Along with other mental health issues, I have experienced enough trauma, grief and loss, sadness, depression, and substance use to last a lifetime, from childhood mistakes to adult issues, and I got help. My philosophy is to help people out in the best way I can by approaching things with an open mind and using Maslow's hierarchy of needs because a client cannot focus on their mental health if they are not well with their physical health or who are dealing with other issues and concerns such as being homeless or dealing with substance abuse. I enjoy working with clients from the age of 6/7 to seniors who are dealing with Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, PTSD, Mood, personality disorders, and other mental health and substance abuse conditions. It is easy to fight your battles alone and to suffer in silence. I want you to know that you no longer have to fight this battle. I am licensed in Colorado and have five years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, coping with addictions, anger management, & motivation, self-esteem, and confidence. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. The first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Lyons. 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 Lyons, 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 in the Lyons 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 Lyons 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. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

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 Lyons 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 Lyons 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 Lyons 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 Lyons 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 a BetterHelp therapist 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). 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 Lyons?

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

Lyons 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 Lyons 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 Lyons 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 80540 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 Lyons counselor?

Before seeing your Lyons 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 Lyons.

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 Lyons 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 Lyons 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 Lyons, 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.

Lyons 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.
