With the nickname of “a town” and the motto of “I saw you in La Feria,” you may be confused by the name of the town of Anthony, New Mexico. However, the town itself, being on the border of Texas where La Feria is, is closely tied to the city by culture and business. Anthony certainly has its own identity as a beautiful city with walking trails and parks to show off the New Mexico mountain range.

Walking and enjoying recreational areas are both good for your physical and mental health. However, sometimes you just need a little support or someone to listen to your concerns. When you need to talk to someone about your problems, it is time to reach out to a mental health professional and there are many therapists and counselors in the Anthony area who are available to help you right now.

I have been working with individuals and groups within the social work and mental and physical health fields for over 20 years. The various settings I have been involved in over the years have afforded me the opportunity to focus on the whole person, their experiences, and where they would like to get to. My approach is looking at the strengths of an individual and working collaboratively with them to build upon those and strengthen the other areas toward solutions in their lives. My specialty and work is doing counseling/therapy for adolescents through adulthood with a strengths-based and solution-focused approach. I do individual, group, and couples counseling. I have experience and expertise working within many areas of mental health including depression, anxiety, stress, substance and alcohol abuse, and school-related issues. I believe in the solution-focused approach and working with you to figure out what needs to be focused on.

There are definitely things that we can do in service of our own healing and growth but I tend to believe that there aren’t really answers or solutions to things, nor does there need to be, but instead ways of looking at them and holding them so that we can be in better relationship with them. I believe we can offer ourselves a perspective that can turn situations, circumstances, feelings, relationships with others and the relationship with ourselves into dance partners, instead of opponents that need to be defeated, not allowed or kept down. We can invite all of our experiences onto the dance floor of our heart! As a human being we will sometimes dance with incredible Grace and at other times be quite clumsy. We are allowed, we are human! If we allow ourselves to move with humor, patience, understanding and forgiveness we can recognize that our life’s dance can truly be Blessed and beautiful! Quite simply offering behavioral, emotional and relational support to young people, individuals and families on their journeys. Providing a strength based approach in which warmth, patience, humility, humor and sincere reflection nurture the already existing health and strength within each human being. Since 2012 I have been Blessed with being able to provide therapeutic support to children, adolescents, adults and families in my role as a youth and family therapist. I would be honored to provide any support or therapeutic accompaniment I can offer to assist you on your path of healing, personal growth, individual unfoldment or just surfing the waves of life. I look forward to working with you. Thank you so much! Eric

Life presents obstacles, such as traumas and loss, that may muddle our understanding of our unique gifts and strengths. We often are left with a distorted understanding of ourselves and a loss of clarity. I can work along side you to help you tap into your wisdom and learn new skills to move forward in the way that feels true to you. I have worked with individuals struggling with life transitions, identity issues, self esteem, codependency, career changes, infertility and grief. My personal and professional experiences have curated an interest in identity, origins, genealogy and how the many facets of culture contributes to our concept of “roots”. I am interested in helping adults who are grappling with DNA discoveries, often from genetic tests. Unknown genetic information frequently reveals family secrets and can cause a multitude of responses, commonly causing an identity disruption which affects the entire family. This experience is referred to as Misattributed Parentage Experience (MPE) or Non Parent Expected (NPE) and includes adoptees, donor conceived individuals and a variety of unique conceptions. I provide support for families facing fertility issues and the many choices on that path. I also enjoy working with people who are contemplating parenthood and all of the complexities that entails. My unique lens is helpful for clients facing these increasingly common situations. I am a compassionate and open person who can be your support through self discovery and healing. My approach to therapy is strength based and curious. I believe you are the expert on your life and my job is to help you process potential changes in your identity and decide if your choices are still serving you. Please reach out if you feel I may be helpful on your journey.

With a master’s in counseling psychology, I’ a national certified counselor with dual licensure as a mental health counselor and marriage and family therapist in Florida and New Mexico. I also hold certification with international reciprocity as a master’s level addictions therapist. I bring 20+ years experience to our working relationship, ensuring each client receives individualized and ethical service to address stress and anxiety, relationship issues, anger management, & motivation, self esteem, personal boundaries, confidence, grief/loss, recovery and phase-of-life transitions. My therapy approach is what’s known as “eclectic:” capitalizing on what works best for you from a range of evidence-based skill sets. Outcomes of our work together will include developing insight to allow for personal growth, putting strategies and tools into place that you can use immediately to make desired changes in your life. You and I will define your outcomes and how we’ll get there, so throughout our time together you’ll be able to measure how far you’ve come and know where we’re heading. And if you just need a “place” to be heard, I’m here with you and for you.

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 Anthony, 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 Anthony 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 Anthony area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Anthony 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 Anthony 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 Anthony may not take health insurance, some in the state of New Mexico 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 New Mexico 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 Anthony, New Mexico 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 Anthony 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 Anthony 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 Anthony 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 Anthony 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 Anthony 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 NM, 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 88021 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 Anthony 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 Anthony 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 Anthony, New Mexico 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.

Anthony 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.
