Greetings! I am elated that you have found your way to my profile. This is an exciting time for you, and I applaud you for taking the first step (of many) in seeking the support that is needed to allow your journey to begin. You are stronger than most, because you have made a decision to get help, and I would be grateful to help you get to your goal. Let me introduce myself, and what I can offer in order to support you to the fullest. I am a career minded person, that believes that everyone has the uncanny ability to be better today then they were yesterday, and more room to improve themselves tomorrow. I love to laugh, and I love to be real with people. I have dedicated my career to the counseling field since 2001, and can openly say I have not one regret for the career path I chose – I often think that counseling chose me! I have a master’s degree in Community Counseling from Adams State University (2009) and a Doctorate degree in Clinical Counseling, with an emphasis in Neuropsychology from University of the Rockies (2013). I currently hold a license in Colorado as well as in Oklahoma as a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been steadily refining my counseling skills in a multitude of settings since 2001. My experience draws from dedicating 12 years of counseling at an inpatient psychiatric hospital, while also working with active military, veterans, and their families. My most current professional clinical settings have been working within the Oklahoma and Colorado prison systems, as well as with the juvenile detention centers. I currently hold the position of Clinical Director, and this position gives me great pleasure as I have the opportunity to work directly with clients, as well as have the opportunity to help other counselors grow professionally and hone their skills. I have a great passion for supporting others and helping them build themselves up, in order to make positive life choices, and reflect a pay-it-forward attitude. I have had the pleasure of helping individuals on their journey heal from past abuse, discover their self-esteem, and grow to discover that they do have the confidence to live their lives fully. My therapeutic style is truly eclectic, and adjusts to meet the needs of the person requesting support. I truly subscribe to the ideology that one size does NOT fit all. And this is the beauty of being you, you are an individual and your sessions will be just as individualized as you are. To give a glimpse of what a session would look like, and to add some structure, I utilize a strength-based approach, closely followed by the Rogerian Therapy methodology, more commonly referred to as client-centered. You know you best, and I want for you to be comfortable in teaching me all that there is to know about you, so that we can help you reach your goals. I will be there to guide you, encourage you, possibly even challenge you if I feel you are unknowingly allowing obstacles to stand in your way. If this kind of therapeutic relationship sounds like it could work for you, then I welcome the opportunity, with open arms and an open mind, to join you on your journey of awakening, healing, and self-discovery. I hope to work with you soon! Bobbie Warren, PsyD, LPC

Whether you're experiencing complex trauma, existential issues, or your symptoms are just disrupting the positive rhythm of your life I'm here to help. I'm here to provide a warm and non judgemental place to share your story and collaboratively work towards growth in your goals. We can work together to explorer and understand negative patterns or behaviors that aren't serving you. Let's work together to help you find peace and personal growth in a compassionate and steady therapeutic space. I utilize an eclectic approach with clients, though tend to draw primarily from a humanistic, person-centered approach. This dynamic in a therapeutic relationship means I attempt to “meet each client where they are.” This serves as a catalyst, allowing each individual to progress through their unique process of self-discovery. I also utilize principles from leading psychological modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. My role as a therapist is not to give you advice or change you. Rather, it is to be an understanding, empathic, and non-judgmental support to help guide you to your own choices, AT YOUR OWN PACE. Together, we can establish goals for therapy, and while I can help you gain insight, I will never push an agenda or risk rupturing our therapeutic relationship. You're the captain of the ship and I'm just here to help you figure out where you want to go and how to read the map. I also currently work as a Co-Responder with the Boulder Police Department. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from North Dakota State University and a Master of Science in Counseling from The University of Mary. I have worked in the mental health field since 2007 and have a background in crisis stabilization, inpatient treatment, animal-assisted therapies, outpatient treatment, adult and child trauma, in-home family therapy, and adolescent residential treatment. I have specialized training in crisis counseling, trauma, and equine therapy. I hail from the Midwest and love animals and the outdoors. In addition to an extensive background with teens and foster children I also work alongside law enforcement and other first responders giving me unique experience in specializing with these populations.

My name is Dr. Gail Bruce-Sanford ad I hold a Ph. D. in Counseling Psychology . I have provided psychotherapy services to young adults, college students and older adults. I have also done much work with couples. I have worked at university counseling centers, community mental health, and individual private practice. I have worked in Maryland, Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania, Montana, and Colorado. My clientele have come from various diverse backgrounds, socioeconomic status, and geographic locations. I have worked with bi-racial, multiracial, and persons from various international countries who currently reside in the United States. I have been doing psychotherapy for over thirty years. I use a blended approach of family systems, psychodynamic , client-centered, and cognitive-behavioral perspectives. I assist clients in finding their strengths and help them to get unstuck. I help them to realize their full potential. I provide much support and validation, as well as encourage deep self-exploration. A primary goal that I have in working with clients is to reduce their suffering and introduce them to healthier paths that can bring fulfillment, inner peace, and the ability to maintain control. People often get stuck in patterns that are self-defeating and find them difficult to change because they have become so habituated to their familiar routines. Introducing new and different strategies could be very relieving and opens doors to new hope, excitement, and satisfaction with life. I allow you to pace yourself so that it does not feel like you are being rushed. Your problems may not all have occurred overnight and will not go away overnight. Hence providing you with enough time to think deeply and work through your issues are very critical in my approach. I provide a nurturing, non-judgmental, and supportive atmosphere in which to work.

Underneath the pain from past challenges and fear of the future lies our most authentic selves. Whether that grief stems from childhood wounds or wounds created along the way. I work with individuals who are fatigued by the weight of their traumatic burdens and recognize that they are-and can be more-than what the trauma narrative describes. By looking through the trees and into the core of being, I help individuals navigate a terrain that appears and feels perilous. To find themselves once again at the end of their therapeutic journey. I am a trauma informed therapist who prioritizes stability prior to processing traumatic experiences. As your therapist, we will begin working on building mental/emotional resilience in the nervous system prior to delving into past suffering. I specialize in working with anxiety, depression, perfectionism, OCD, eating disorders, and attachment wounds. I look forward to hearing ways that I can best assist in your journey towards self-discovery. Whether it is due to readiness for change or a realization that life cannot continue on the way it's being lived. I am here to provide support and potential road maps for growth and healing.

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.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Milliken 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 Milliken 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 Milliken 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 Milliken, 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 Milliken 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 Milliken 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 Milliken 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 Milliken 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 Milliken 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 80651 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 Milliken 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 Milliken 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 Milliken, 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.

Milliken 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.
