NOTE: At this time, I am only working by texting, or using the audio feature to leave voice texts, which I find MUCH easier than typing, and often much more personal, and connecting.....I prefer to not do video or audio sessions. I find that texting and voice texting helps the counseling process span the whole week rather than being a random one hour session which may or may not end up being the time you most need to talk. .Thanks for understanding. I know some people prefer that, but I am not offering that at this time. We all experience challenges, uncertainties, relationship issues, career and work issues, mood stuff, family stuff, or anxiety. It's part of being human during these really chaotic times. It is really smart to look for support when going through these kinds of things. Good for you... I am supportive, non-judgmental, have good advice when advice is appropriate. I have traveled a lot, and it helps me understand where many people are coming from. My clients are from all over the world. I have a good sense of humor, and I am not afraid to use it in our work. I'm very approachable and authentic. I want connect with my clients, which is even more important, working online like this. If you look at my web site, you will get more of a flavor for who I am. That's drjamesmichaelnolan.com I tend to focus on the positive, toward possibilities, toward resources and strengths. I do not spend too much time hanging out in negativity, if possible. That doesn't mean we can't talk about hard stuff--I just don't want us to hang out there for a long time before moving toward something more positive in your life. My last full-time job was as a President of a graduate school that trained Counselors. I did that for almost 13 years. I am an INFP on the Myers-Briggs, Let's get together and see what we can do to make your life feel better. I am here, waiting to hear from you... Warmly, Jim

I believe that every person holds the power and resources necessary to find happiness. As a trans woman I understand both the external and the internal forces that create self-doubt and spike fear—the loneliness, the separateness, and the tailspin of uncertainty. I know, too, from professional and personal experience that self-acceptance and happiness are within everyone. Science upholds this belief, telling us that those who seek help benefit from it. For me this is not a theory, but the product of experience. I favor mindful-based approaches, but I also have practice experience with cognitive behavioral therapy and other evidenced-based methods. I work well with people challenged not only by anxiety, depression, trauma (PTSD), but also with those in challenging relationships, gender issues, especially those from LGBTQ and military veteran populations. I welcome all those who seek an empathic, supportive, and nonjudgmental collaborator to a better, more fulfilling and satisfying life.

I am licensed in New Mexico with 5 years of professional work experience helping my clients discover and leverage their strengths while addressing identified challenges. I have experience in helping clients with motivation, anxiety, stress, depression, self-esteem and confidence, relationship issues, parenting, career and education challenges, coping with life changes, and life coaching. My passion is helping others recognize and reach their potential. For the last 30 years, I have done that through my work in education. However, since earning my Clinical Mental Health Counseling degree, I have been working in my rural community to provide much-needed mental health services. I was born and raised in Lancaster, Pennsylvania...if you've never had the pleasure of visiting the area, watch the movie Witness with Harrison Ford. Quite a bit of it was shot in my hometown. Of course, like many people, I did not appreciate the uniqueness of my upbringing while growing up there. As a military wife, I have lived in quite a few places across the country and do my best to bloom wherever I am planted! I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. I take an eclectic approach to counseling--getting to know my clients and meeting them where they are. Then, drawing from multiple therapy approaches, we collaboratively develop a plan to meet those needs. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. If you are ready, I am here to support you in that process. I look forward to working with you.

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.

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 Corrales 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 Corrales area can be found below:

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

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Corrales 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 Corrales 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 Corrales 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.

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 Corrales 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 Corrales 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 Corrales, 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.

Corrales 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.
