Hello my name is Gwen. I'm a licensed clinical social worker and I have worked in the behavioral health and substance abuse field for over 20 years. My first education in the area of counseling was in my third semester of college where I was introduced to the work of Dr. Carl Rogers. Dr. Rogers believes the role of the therapist is to be an empathic presence which creates a sense of safety. When you feel safe, it allows you to dive down deeper into your experience to figure out what happened, how is that playing out in your daily life and re-creating the suffering you are trying to avoid. I believe everyone has the answers within themselves for all the questions they have about themselves and others. We live in a culture that doesn’t necessarily encourage reflection and self examination. In fact, for some it is discouraged. My empathic presence, will allow you to find your way as we walk through that experience again, seeking a sense of completion so it no longer occupies your body. Allowing you to fit better within yourself. Together we can gain deeper insight, and develop strategies to cope with emotions, and subsequent behaviors. Please let me offer you my perspective about emotion. I believe our emotions are our ‘feelings” in response to what we are sensing outside of ourselves. These emotions can be used as a roadmap in life. A road map that allows learning to better to enable you to have more control over what you say and do. Learning through self-awareness and reflection can lead to greater inner peace. In my maturation process I had to learn how to regulate my emotions and tolerate the frustration I may feel when I don’t get what I want. Using these two behaviors, emotional regulation and tolerating frustration can lead to greater self-control and typically an increase in one’s self esteem. Please join me in the voyage of you, as you seek greater inner peace.

11 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am licensed as a clinical mental health counselor in New Mexico and Florida with over 10 years of clinical and supervisory experience. I began my counseling career in 1991 but soon left to pursue a career in the software industry. After that I underwent a 10-year period of training in Buddhist meditation and practice, before returning to counseling work. This period of training has helped me to focus on the essentials, which have to do with learning how to live in the present, accept life as it is, and find the hidden joy here. Sometimes it can help to let go, at least a little, of who you think you are and what you think you know—with all the problems those ideas often entail. This is easier said than done of course, and often we have traumatic memories, chronic pain or chronic patterns of thinking that keep us feeling trapped in a loop. I see my work as helping you shift out of whatever painful loop you’re in and to broaden your vision of life. Working on yourself takes courage, curiosity, and a willingness to grow in compassion for yourself and others. So I respect this move you're making! What you get with me is a person who will respect and listen to you, and will be looking for ways to support and accompany you on your goals. By connecting with me, you connect to my feelings and views about your situation, which often will mean that I’ll be noticing strengths and goodness that you might be missing. But it is your life and your situation, and you are in the driver’s seat regarding your life. Some specific areas I like to work on with people include: • Psychoeducation regarding how the nervous system functions to help you understand and befriend your own body; • Psychoeducation regarding how the mind functions, so that you find harmony between the different sides of yourself; • Deepening religious/spiritual understanding and the spiritual path, including learning meditative life skills; • Living through existential crises and finding new meaning; • Getting over panic attacks for good; • Healing chronic pain (through Pain Reprocessing Therapy (PRT); and • Resolving traumatic memories using The Flash Technique. If this sounds promising, I'd be happy to meet with 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 Grants, 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.

Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Grants or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns.

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

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 Grants?

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

Grants 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 Grants 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 Grants 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.

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

Before seeing your Grants 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 Grants.

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 Grants 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 Grants 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 Grants, 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.

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.
