Thank you for visiting my profile page! I’d like to share a little bit about myself, and I know that selecting a counselor is an important decision. I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor since 2001, and I have worked with clients from diverse backgrounds with many different challenges and concerns. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and a Master of Arts degree in Counseling from the University of Colorado. I'm also working on a PhD in Psychology at Northcentral University. In addition to my clinical work, I also enjoy teaching psychology classes at our Community College. Personally, I'm a native of Colorado, and I absolutely love the outdoors and nature. I enjoy hiking, reading, painting and playing with our dog, Luna. Perhaps you can meet her online! I also love to travel with my husband. My philosophy in counseling is to meet my clients where they are and discover the strengths they have to help them make the changes they want to make. In my experience, people come to counseling because something needs to change, and maybe they're feeling stuck. They may want to change how they feel, how they behave, or how they think about things. I take a compassionate and practical approach to counseling, which enables clients to see results quickly. I believe that what happens between sessions is as important as what happens in sessions, and I give clients tools to put into practice right away. I view the counseling relationship as a collaboration with you, and YOU are the expert in your life. “When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves”. Viktor Frankl My specialties and experience include work with clients on decreasing depression and anxiety, overcoming trauma, and improving self-esteem and confidence. I have also worked successfully with many clients to change habits and behaviors that are not serving them. This includes substance use disorders and other addictions (e.g. gambling, eating, shopping, etc.). I also have experience working with first responders (law enforcement, fire, and paramedics) and their families. Often, relationships are also part of the reason for seeking counseling, and I have specialized training and experience in helping people communicate more effectively, resolve conflicts, and become more assertive, personally, and professionally. Finally, my work with clients is often during times of grief and loss or transition in their lives, and I help people see the opportunities in change, even when the change is unwelcome or even scary. My Approach: I have training and experience in a variety of approaches to work with clients. I believe that counseling interventions should be solidly grounded in research. I like to use these approaches: * Cognitive -Behavioral Therapy * Dialectical Behavior Therapy * Solution Focused Therapy * Meaningful Life Therapy * Existential Psychology * Mindfulness-Based Interventions * Acceptance & Commitment Therapy * Japanese/Eastern Approaches to wellness (e.g. Morita Therapy) Seeking help takes courage and I commend you for taking this step! I would be honored to work with you as you take the next steps in your journey! -Lisa

Hello, my name is Janet Buntrock and I want to congratulate you on taking this step to growth and healing, I remember my first experience as a client. I was so anxious that, when the counselor answered the phone, I hung up! I know what it feels like to be the one seeking help and I have over twenty years experience offering that assistance. My initial background was in Early Childhood Education, but I realised how much I enjoyed helping the parents in their roles as parents, spouses and as single parents. I then went back to school acquiring two Masters degrees, one in Counseling and one in Christian Studies. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Colorado and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington State. I am also a Fellow in Thanatology, (the study of Death, Dying and Bereavement). As my life experience changed, I began to spend more and more time with people in transition: job loss, personal and professional identity, divorce. I have worked extensively with individuals with chronic illness and/or the grief and loss associated with either being chronically ill or as the caregiver. My areas of speciality include training and credentialing in Grief & Loss, Critical Incident Response, Trauma and Taumatic Loss. My ideal client is one who wants to learn and grow and is willing to do the work to do so, My passion is to see people heal and to have hope again.

Hello! My name is Angie and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over five years of experience providing therapy services. My experience is in a wide range of therapeutic settings including: inpatient psychiatric hospitalization, domestic violence shelters and with a community mental health agency. I have worked with clients affected by depression, anxiety, substance use, trauma and relationship challenges as individuals, couples and families. Additionally, I am a military spouse and have worked closely with active duty members as well as family members. I can personally and professionally understand the unique challenges associated with this population. As a military spouse, I moved frequently but have finally settled permanently in the panhandle of Florida. I received my Bachelors degree in Psychology and my Masters Degree in Social Work from Indiana University. My approach to therapy is client centered as I strongly believe and recognize clients are the experts on their lives and should determine the path, intensity and length of their therapy. I like to use a strengths-based and solutions-focused approach and I draw on multiple treatment modalities to guide clients in establishing realistic treatment plans to help them reach their desired therapeutic goals. I tend to use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to assist clients in exploring relationships among their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to assist them in discovering any dysfunctional thought patterns leading to self-destructive behaviors and beliefs. I also support clients through developing coping skills using mindfulness and emotion regulation. It takes courage and bravery to take the first steps towards the change you desire. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

When you feel like you’re just spinning your wheels, therapy can help you gain the traction you need to get your life moving forward again.

Therapy can help you get unstuck from repeated struggles with yourself and difficulties with others. In our meetings, you and I will work together to identify the roadblocks that keep holding you back.

Welcome! My name is Kylee Nelson and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in both Oklahoma and Colorado. I was born and raised in Oklahoma, but relocated to Colorado about 3 years ago. I have over 10 years of experience in the mental health field working with parents, families and children and 7 years of experience as a therapist. I have a special passion for working with mothers and the specific stressors that come with the challenges and blessings of motherhood. Motherhood can be a time of joy, blessing and contentment. However, it can also be a time of stress, overwhelm and can bring up memories from our own childhoods that aren’t pleasant. I enjoy talking with moms and helping them find ways to love themselves, give themselves grace and find balance in their day to day lives. In addition to mothers, I also have a special passion working with women of all ages who are neurodivergent and seeking to create self acceptance, learn skills to reduce overwhelm/overstimulation and create a life for themselves where their neurodivergence is seen as a strength, not a hindrance. As a highly sensitive ADHDer myself, I understand some of the specific challenges neurodivergent women face. My counseling style is focused on building a relationship, truly listening and providing empathy and support. I’m looking forward to being a support on your journey towards a more peaceful, balanced and content version of yourself. Much Warmth and Care, Kylee

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 Rockvale 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 Rockvale area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Rockvale 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 Rockvale 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 Rockvale 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 Rockvale, 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 Rockvale 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 Rockvale 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 Rockvale 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 Rockvale 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 Rockvale 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 81244 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 Rockvale 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 Rockvale 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 Rockvale, 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.

Rockvale 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.
