There are so many different circumstances that lead to seeking counseling. Most of the time, it comes down to the fact that we know something has to change and we don't know what (or how) to do this alone. That is where I come in. I am here to listen...to support and encourage. I am also here to help you sort through your thoughts and feelings so that you can begin to see some positive movement again. I am a licensed professional counselor in Colorado with over 10 years professional experience helping people. I have successfully worked with Clients to address: Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Grief and Loss, Divorce, Parenting Challenges, Physical and Emotional Trauma, Family Conflict and Communication, Substance Use, etc. I also have a lot of experience working with individuals, couples, and families. My counseling style is supportive and goal oriented. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. Depending on my clients’ needs, I draw from diverse counseling techniques that can include: Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI), as well as psychodynamic therapy techniques. Every client is unique, so all counseling is individualized to meet their individual strengths and challenges. At times, we all can find ourselves feeling isolated...alone...without understanding. It can be hard to reach out to someone and seek the support you need. There is hope, though. The support is there for you when you are ready. I look forward to working with you!

I enjoy working with individuals who are seeking a real change in their life. Sometimes you are "tired of the rut I am in" or feeling that "something needs to change..I do not want to feel like this anymore." Sometimes you are struggling with "old issues" and sometimes it is more current stresses like anxiety, relationships, or just do not know what to do next; I believe when you are ready to make a change, having a supportive push can really work! I have been a practicing social worker since 1985. I have worked in many areas of practice including active duty military members and families, VA hospitals, and community mental health. I currently specialize in treating trauma of all kinds, depression, anxiety, women’s issues and life transitions. I enjoy supporting people seeking positive life changes. I am a firm believer in real change being very possible. For me, therapy is a support system offering a course of treatment. I usually work with a client for 8 to 10 sessions with a goal of active change and renewed energy and confidence. Give therapy a chance...give me a call.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Minturn 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 Minturn due to a higher cost of living.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Minturn?

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

Minturn 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 Minturn 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 Minturn 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.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Minturn counselor?

Before seeing your Minturn 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 Minturn.

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 Minturn 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 Minturn 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 Minturn, 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.

Minturn 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.
