Greetings! My name is Tom Swartz and for the past 25+ years I have worked as a Licensed Professional Counselor in Colorado. I have worked with a diverse range of adults seeking to create and enhance their toolbox of life skills. I am a Person-Centered counselor who enjoys working with individuals and couples as they seek assistance in addressing their life issues and concerns. My style is warm, compassionate, non-judgmental and solution focused. Together we will seek ways to support your goals which feed your heart and soul. I have consulted and worked in a variety of counseling settings including: private practice, rural clinics, hospitals, community service organizations, schools, childcare centers, sheltered workshops, military bases (including overseas installations), small businesses to Fortune 500 companies. When working with couples some time is needed for each person to tell their own story and the story they share together which brings them up to the present. From there guidance can be offered to begin building healthier interactions, encouragements, forgiveness, and hope. Small successes, the use of daily skills and new insights can build towards a nurturing, satisfying and successful relationship. If the couple ends the relationship, a real effort is made to appreciate hard lessons learned and how not to repeat them. I have completed my master’s degrees in Clinical Psychology and Computer Information Systems. I have also pursued graduate work in business administration, communication, education, special needs, learning disabilities, and project management. I hold the following certifications: Clinical Fellow, American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) National Certified Counselor, National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (NBCC) Master Addiction Counselor (NBCC) Fellow, The American Academy of Pain Management (AAPM) My availability is evenings and weekends with a focus on using phone and video modalities. It will be a pleasure to work with you!

About Me: Greetings! I'm Ali, a dedicated and compassionate mental health provider with over 13 years of experience in helping individuals navigate their emotional well-being. My primary focus is on working with adolescents and young adults, guiding them through the unique challenges they face during this transformative stage of life. I understand that adolescence can be a complex journey, and I'm here to provide unwavering support. Specializations: Over the course of my career, I have developed a profound experience in several key areas of mental health: Trauma: I specialize in addressing trauma-related issues, recognizing the profound impact traumatic experiences can have on one's mental health. By fostering a safe and nurturing environment, I help clients process their past experiences, develop healthy coping mechanisms, and build resilience to overcome the effects of trauma. Coping Skills: My therapeutic approach emphasizes the importance of equipping adolescents with effective coping skills. I believe that arming individuals with a diverse range of coping techniques empowers them to navigate life's challenges with confidence and grace. Through our work together, I guide clients in developing personalized strategies that promote emotional regulation and overall well-being. Depression and Anxiety: Two of the most prevalent mental health concerns among clients are depression and anxiety. With extensive experience in these areas, I employ evidence-based interventions to help clients manage their symptoms and regain a sense of control in their lives. My goal is to provide a supportive space where clients can openly discuss their feelings, learn about the nature of their conditions, and collaborate on strategies for improvement. Therapeutic Approaches: I integrate a range of therapeutic modalities into my practice to tailor the treatment to each individual's unique needs. My core approaches include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): By identifying and challenging negative thought patterns, CBT helps people reframe their perspectives and develop healthier ways of thinking and behaving. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): DBT equips clients with essential skills for managing emotions, interpersonal relationships, distress tolerance, and mindfulness. It's an invaluable tool for promoting emotional regulation and self-awareness. Philosophy: In my practice, I prioritize empathy, collaboration, and non-judgment. I believe that every individual possesses the innate capacity for growth and change. My role is to provide guidance, facilitate self-discovery, and instill a sense of hope in adolescents as they work towards achieving their personal goals. Approach: I strive to create a therapeutic relationship built on trust, respect, and open communication. Through active listening and a person-centered approach, I tailor my interventions to meet the unique needs and preferences of each client. I view therapy as a collaborative journey, and I am committed to walking alongside my clients every step of the way. If you're seeking a skilled and empathetic mental health provider who specializes in working with clients, I'm here to offer my support. Together, we can embark on a path of healing, growth, and transformation. Feel free to reach out to schedule a session or to learn more about how I can assist you on your journey to better mental health.

Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, marriage, family issues, or other emotional challenges, feel proud that you have begun your search to find the mental health care services that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Ophir.

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 Ophir, 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 Ophir 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.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Ophir 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 Ophir 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 Ophir 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 Ophir, 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 Ophir 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 Ophir 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 Ophir 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 Ophir 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 Ophir 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 81426 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 Ophir 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 Ophir 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 Ophir, 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.

Ophir 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.
