Hello! My name is Kelli and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Colorado with over 10 years of experience in a variety of counseling settings. I believe that creating a safe and non-judgemental environment for therapy is essential in healing. I am intensively trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and often draw from this modality in my work. I am also certified in Perinatal Mental Health and am familiar with the unique challenges that come with pregnancy and the postpartum period. I aim to help my clients work towards the delicate balance of accepting yourself as you are without judgement while at the same time working towards the changes you want to see. I value honesty and always encourage any feedback to make sure your needs are being met. Taking the first step to reach out for support takes bravery and strength. I look forward to helping you take the next steps in your journey!

Hello I am a mental health and substance use provider who has been in the field since 2009. I implement various psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among patients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the patient and clinician alike. But in the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results. I want to help you love the life you live and live the life you love! I offer substance abuse and mental health counseling. Individual, couples, and family therapy. I meet clients where they are at and work with you to achieve your goals. I am experienced in working with clients who are pre and post op for bariatric surgery, LGBTQIA+, and those who are experiencing stress/anxiety/depression due to life changes. I generally check messages here once per day Monday-Friday and respond as quickly as I can. Please see below for you schedule and response time information. My practice hours are as follows: Monday's/Tuesday's: possible availability between 6:30-8p (please discuss with therapist) Wednesday's: 6:30p-9:30p (video or Live Chat sessions only) Possible availability for LIVE CHAT ONLY sessions between 9a-5p. Thursday's: possible availability between 6:30-8p (please discuss with therapist) Friday's: Unavailable Saturday's: Unavailable Sunday's: possible availability (please check with therapist) I generally can respond via the chat at least once day (Monday thru Friday), sometimes more! I do try to check the chat throughout the day as my schedule permits. You can also book a live session with me ahead of time by going to my schedule and choosing an available slot that works for you. Your first appointment with me will be 30 minutes in length to meet, get needed information, and discuss therapy goals and to answer any questions you may have. Following the initial session if you choose to continue to work with me our sessions will be 30 minutes in length. I do appreciate your patience when it takes a bit longer at times to respond, as I may be in session with other clients or tending to professional/personal responsibilities. If you prefer chat counseling, please be advised that I am not available 24/7 and it may take longer at times to respond. I do try to check messages at least once a day during the hours of 9a-9p MST Monday thru Friday, any messages outside of those hours will be checked and responded to on the Next business day. Please remember that BetterHelp (or sister site!) is not appropriate if you are in crisis or in immediate need of support. In crisis situations, please call 911 or local emergency services. You can also call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) to talk to someone right away!

I am both a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Licensed Addictions Counselor (LAC) who in addition to working with depression, anxiety, trauma and abuse, adjustment disorders, and sex offense issues, specializes in Co-occurring addiction with mental health disorders. My counseling style is open, warm, non-judgmental and one of empowerment. I treat those with whom I interact with respect, compassion, and a sensitivity to meet you where you are. My counseling approach incorporates humanistic, cognitive behavioral with use of motivational interviewing. I attempt to fit my communication style with you to meet your unique needs. One caveat about me: I only am working evening shifts part-time for Betterhelp at this time. That means my available hours for members start at 5pm PST Wednesday through Friday evenings. However I do respond to messages as I can on other days, but again only in the evenings. It takes courage to explore avenues of change for a more fulfilling and happier life. The first steps can be the most difficult! I am here to support and empower you on your journey. I look forward to supporting you in this work! Some Background about me: I worked for four years in Colorado state prisons with sex offenders as well as several years in private organizations providing a wide range of services from substance abuse to depression and anxiety to work on cognitive distortions that perpetuate domestic violence. I have run a wide range of groups addressing areas of cognitive distortions as well as educational groups for behavior modification. While I have training in cases of Domestic Violence, I am not yet state certified to work with those who have been charged with a domestic violence offense. I am currently state approved to work with men who have been charged with a sexual offense. I am an avid yoga practitioner for health and wellness and have used exercise and healthy eating practices to manage and overcome my own past debilitating autoimmune deficiencies. I specialize in meditation and relaxation practices which have included the use of Acudetox (The 5-point Ear Acupuncture for Detox Protocol). I have written two books on the philosophy of nature as healer and meditation practices, and am working on a third book for expanding meditation practice.

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 Marble, 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 Marble 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.

  • CBT

  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Marble 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 Marble 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 Marble 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 Marble, 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 Marble 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 Marble 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 Marble 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 Marble 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 Marble 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 81623 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 Marble 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 Marble 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 Marble, 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.

Marble 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.
