Relationship issuesFamily conflicts
8 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Chuck specializes in working with relationships and family conflict, including blended family, money, intimacy, and communication issues. He finds working with distressed couples especially rewarding. As a veteran of the United States Air Force, Chuck understands the stressors military and dependents face. He is also familiar with the law enforcement community. In addition to a Master’s in Marriage, Family & Child Counseling, Chuck holds a Master’s in Business Administration, which helps when working with the “business side” of marriage & family. Chuck uses a curriculum that he developed over time designed to facilitate communication (exchanging listening and respect), understand differences, meet needs, identify strengths, define roles, build intimacy, resolve conflict, and set boundaries with internal and external threats to the relationship(s). Given the stressors couples face today (technology, social media, etc.) as never before, managing these threats has become essential to “tipping the scale” in favor of marriage. He will almost always assign homework. Chuck requires that at least the first session be conducted via videoconferencing, and may want to continue that modality until the “therapist-client relationship” has been established, per telehealth best practices. As a family-systems therapist, Chuck enjoys having the whole family present for the first session whenever possible. He likes to learn all the members, their roles in the family system and the family story. He has found that generational legacies can be very powerful. Chuck believes that we must be the authors of our own stories and choose our paths. Many people instinctively know the path that they want to be on, but are stuck in maladaptive patterns rooted in the past. As a counselor, Chuck is more directive than most and uses Milan Systemic theory as a framework. As a first step he will ask you to fill in the blank “The problem that I’m having in my (family, life, relationship, etc.) is…” The more brief and specific you can be in this “problem statement” the more likely you and Chuck will be to resolve that problem. Next, you and Chuck will write a “better statement.” Again filling in the blank “The problem will be better when…” As with the problem statement, the more brief and specific you can be, the more likely you will be to resolve the problem. As insight is gained and progress made toward the “better,” the problem and better statements are refined as a work-in-progress. Chuck incorporates “mindfulness” from Dialectal Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and lessons learned from practicing yoga into his work. Mindfulness teaches observing emotions as a scientist observes phenomena in nature without judgment, and living in the moment. Chuck was married for 29 years, divorced, and is now engaged to the woman of his dreams. So, he can probably relate to whatever you (and your family) are going through. As a blended family-to-be, they have a 28 year-old son who served in the United States Navy, and is currently living on the east coast. Chuck has a four year-old son in heaven, giving him the empathy for those who have suffered a loss, which can only come from personal experience. Chuck holds a Master’s degree in Marriage, Family & Child Counseling from the University of San Diego, and is independently licensed as an LPC in Colorado (2400), and in Texas (77267). He is also licensed as an LPCC in New Mexico (0734). Currently, Chuck’s “office” day for Telehealth Video sessions is on Tuesdays from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, only. He can respond to Messaging on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, only. Chuck does not use Chat or Phone.

35 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I remember that I was in the 8th grade when I became interested in human behavior. During the summer between 8th and 9th grade my father asked me if I wanted to start reading books which described varying diagnoses. Leave it up to A. Howard Bell, PhD to hand me the book SYBIL to read and discuss. That was all it took, I was hooked. All summer long I read other books which were fiction and non-fiction regarding varying diagnoses and how that person coped to social problems and the effects on one's individual psyche. As I was the daughter of a Clinical Psychologist, many other experiences were different from those who grow up in homes without a PhD in Clinical Psychology at the Helm. Not only did I read voraciously about Psychology, but I also learned information not normally given to a teen. My father was first and foremost a Rogerian Psychologist and as such decided that it would behoove me to have an understanding of Humanistic Psychotherapy before I went off to college; he was aware that Psychology had begun leaning from Psychoanalytic to Behaviorism and the " THIRD FORCE" or HUMANISM was not focused upon in the same way. My father's influence upon me gave me my beginnings as a clinician: THE RELATIONSHIP and HOW OTHERS CAN OR CANNOT RELATE TO THE THERAPIST dictated the rest of the healing process. Both Psychoanalytic and Behavioral schools at that time taught the need to stay more distanced from the Client than that of the Humanistic therapist. I even knew the why behind the therapist styles. I won't give you a lecture here as to the why of each; I would like you to read to the end of my introduction! Dad had hoped I would leave for college knowing information which might not be stressed in my college courses. As it turns out, he was correct, except for the class taught by Dr. Timmons, PSYCHOLOGY OF NORMAL BEHAVIOR. This was one of most popular classes on the LSU campus and Dr. Timmons was voted favorite "favorite professor" two out of the five years I attended classes there. I attended Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA because my father was conferred his doctorate there and my older brother had also chosen to attend school there. I studied what was studied then in Psychology: Emotion and Motivation, Sensation and Perception, Learning Theory, and Abnormal Psychology were a few of the courses I took. I was a research assistant for the Professor Emeritus, A.J. Riopelle, PhD; I worked in his lab studying social behavior of chimpanzees. At the time, I seemed less drawn to the Neurological basis of behavior as I was the Sociological. After receiving my BS in Psychology, I went on to graduate School at Tulane University School of Social Work In New Orleans, LA. I excelled there as I had found my niche. Understanding the person in their environment has been how I have conducted my Psychotherapy since Graduate School. I am very fortunate to have studied with those in the field of Trauma who have been on the cutting edge of research since I was in Graduate School. Trauma and Trauma therapy was just in its infancy at that time. I continued to study and plan to continue receiving certifications in my areas of interest. One of my characteristics as a clinician is that I have been a voracious reader. You may love or hate that about me. What I began learning was that traumatic experiences are processed in the brain differently than non-traumatic ones. As I grew more and more interested in Trauma treatment, I realized the invaluable information learned as an undergraduate student at LSU. Talk therapies assist in creating the relationship necessary to delve into the LIMBIC or Middle Brain; the LIMBIC BRAIN holds the trauma. “Does my situation count as a traumatic one?” you might ask. If it happened to you, you cannot let it go, and it has changed you forever, it can be seen as traumatic. There are questionnaires which assist me in quantifying the level of trauma to you, therefore helping us create the best treatment plan for you. The latest example I can think of is COVID. COVID has brought up direct and indirect loss for each person in the last 18 months. Other examples can include difficulties during childhood and adolescence with not only abuse and neglect but also friendships and other romantic and platonic relationships. Moving a lot can be hard on a child and one effect can be carried into adulthood as a generalized fear of change. Trauma can come in the form of dangerous weather creating a totally new life situation. Many today are concerned about our climate change and what that will mean for ourselves and for generations to come. It is quite traumatic for someone to grow up "different" from one's peer group. This "difference" can come in the form of race, religion, body type, intelligence level, personality style, etc. What I learned early on from Dad was that I did not have to be exactly like you or have had your particular circumstances in my life to be of service to you. This knowledge has assisted me when a therapist in Louisiana, Mississippi, and New Mexico. It is in the narrative of our lives that we can compare and contrast experiences. Finally, another characteristic about myself is that if you choose me as your therapist, you will also find that many of my experiences growing up did NOT match that of other children whose parents were in the helping professions and it was healing from those very experiences which have made me an exceptional clinician. I was not given a perfect childhood but I was given the tools early on in which what has become a life-long process of personal growth and change. What you are aware of as "the problem" and what might be an underlying problem is what we will discover during our walk together down this path called healing.

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.

Hello, and thank you for taking action for your lifelong well being. That takes courage. Therapy doesn't have to be a drag! It can be an amazing, liberating experience. Whatever is troubling you, you can find the peace, power, and answers you seek. A strong therapeutic relationship is the most important factor in healing. With genuine appreciation for you, a strong, grounded presence, an open heart, honesty and humor, I will be your ally. Humans are relational by nature, and the health of our relationships impacts our well being. Our relationships to Nature, our community, our beloveds, and ourselves reflect our honest, sometimes hidden beliefs, and those beliefs are powerful tools for transformation. We will engage in experiential, evidenced based practices rooted in mindfulness, somatic awareness and compassion. I am a licensed clinical social worker in New Mexico with 4 years of professional experience as a community based psychotherapist. I can help you work through relationship challenges, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and parenting challenges. I have worked as a school social worker in Native communities, providing services to exceptional children, youth and families. I can help you advocate for your child so that they get services that will truly help them in school. As a Native woman (Muscogee Nation) who works with Native communities, families, children, adolescents and adults, I have a deep understanding of the impact of historical and generational trauma on our lives. More importantly, I understand acknowledging the trauma is just the first step, and that we have a wealth of cultural practices to help us heal and thrive. I am currently in postgraduate training in Traumatic Stress Studies with Dr. Bessel van der Kolk.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Clayton 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 Clayton 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 Clayton 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 a BetterHelp therapist 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). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

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

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

Clayton 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 Clayton 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 Clayton 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 NM, therapists 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 88415 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your Clayton 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 Clayton.

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 Clayton 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 Clayton 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 Clayton, 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.

Clayton 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.
