Hello! It takes courage and strength to know when to seek a happier or more fulfilled life through counseling and so I thank you for taking that first step. I have 9 years of experience in the counseling field and have been a licensed as a Professional Counselor in both Wyoming and Colorado for the last 6 years. I believe the most important part of counseling is building a trusting, comfortable and collaborative relationship so that is what I strive for most. I therefore vow to create a safe and non judgmental space for you as we begin our work together. My theoretical orientation is Person Centered or Rogerian in nature as I believe everyone is different and therefore everyone's view of his or her own world and the ability to change it is different as well. I also practice Strength Based and Solution Focused counseling as well to help clients meet the goals they set for themselves. I hold a Masters Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Argosy University in Denver, Colorado. I have worked with clients ages 2 years old through the lifespan and enjoy the diversity of working with many different clients of different backgrounds. I have worked in private practice, community mental health agencies and school districts in order to help people overcome obstacles and reach their ultimate goals in life. Everyone needs to feel heard and connected at different times in their life and that is what I am here for!

20 years of experience

I have worked for 20+ years in the field of counseling. My experience is mainly focused on substance abuse issues, related trauma, and the mental health problems that often co-exist. I am a holistic provider, which means that I see the person wholly, mind, body, spirit, and seek to help clients experience themselves wholly. Problems do not occur in a vacuum. Without this holistic perspective, it is easy to focus on one thing, but neglect the core issue driving that "one thing." My approach is one of "partnering" with the client. Not leading, not following, but walking with you as you rediscover your true self, and then seek to find internal balance which leads to a more productive and fulfilled lifestyle. I consider it a great privilege when someone trusts me enough to share at the level necessary to effect life changes, and I believe that confidentiality is the bedrock of therapy.

Welcome! My name is James Cameron, a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (LPC-S) in the state of Texas and LPC in Colorado. In addition to holding another license in Texas and a national license. I have been privileged to work with people through a wide range of concerns both personal and professional. Beyond the supervision and instruction required for licensure several opportunities to study and learn from leaders in the field, both in America and internationally, have come my way. I started my licensed journey in 1999 and have continued growing skills ever since then. Looking forward to serving you. My therapy style involves treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. Labels, while good to provide broad ideas of issues, do little to express your individual situation. Once established your services will be tailored to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to the privilege of working with you!

Hello, I am Fauzia, Life challenges can be overwhelming and stressful, asking for help may not be easy but necessary if one is to overcome them. We all have experienced at some point in our lives, painful moments, found ourselves alone, perhaps no one can understand or maybe fear of being judged. It takes courage and resiliency to take the first step towards healing wounds. I understand reaching out for help is a difficult process but necessary if one is to experience joy, happiness, contentment, peace and love, one must become aware of the workings of Body Form versus the Self. Identification with one’s narratives, constructs and concepts will lead to more suffering because there is no end to thoughts and more thoughts, so on and so forth. I started my journey into the field of mental health and substance abuse in 1985. Through self-observation and mindfulness, I got to know Me, not the conditioned Me but the unconditioned Me; I found Eckhart Tolle and Kim Eng’ s teachings and mindfulness meditations most helpful in my transformation. When I am working with clients what I have found most helpful is; listening, respecting, empathizing and connecting which means I must be present to receive and to teach ways you can heal and transform, become aware of your true nature and who you truly are, free yourself from the narratives, constructs, concepts and labelling. I am big on teaching the importance of Mindfulness Meditations; through your breathing practice, bringing your attention to each breath as it travels inside your body, you will discover your self that lives within the body form and observe your thoughts, the one that is observing is You!!! Thoughts are just thoughts. The essence of you is much vast and greater than your thoughts. I am passionate about my work with my clients, it brings me so much joy and happiness when clients are able to realize there are two not one; The body form and You the consciousness. I have been practicing since 1985, I have been providing therapy to children, adolescents, adults and geriatric population for over three decades, my specialty areas are Self Care tool box, depression, Post-Traumatic stress disorder, Complex Trauma,,Anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, ADHD, codependency, addiction and many other emotional issues that impact one's daily life. Once I complete thorough evaluation, I provide recommendations based on areas you identified during the evaluation that need to be addressed in therapy. I use various interventions to help my client get the best results, each individual is different therefore not one approach works for all, I have extensive experience and training in the following interventions; CBT, coping skills, mindfulness, behavior management plans, ABC's of emotions, insight and self reflection among many others that are helpful. to develop confidence and build self-esteem, healthy coping skills, practice Self-Care.

At the end of the day, my training all begins and ends with a trusted, authentic relationship. While I often rely on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and other evidence-based approaches, I incorporate a variety of tools into the therapeutic process. My goal is to understand how our patterned thoughts, emotions, and behavior often get stuck and how to retrain our mind to create new pathways and connections that can lead to new behaviors and emotional break through. I also utilize research on how our brain and body are connected to how we experience daily life. All while providing a safe and accepting space to walk-through life's challenges.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

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 Red Cliff 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 Red Cliff 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 81649 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 Red Cliff 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 Red Cliff 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 Red Cliff, 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.

Red Cliff 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.
