Relationship issuesFamily conflicts
8 years of experience as a 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.

Hello! My name is Danielle Guerrero and I am a licensed clinical social worker in New Mexico. I am a life long New Mexico resident, and attended New Mexico State University for both my bachelors and masters in social work. I have several years of experience working with a wide variety of clients to include both individuals and families . I have experience working with individuals who have experienced domestic violence, families and individuals who are involved with CPS, as well as specializing in foster care/adoption and attachment therapy. I also work with individuals who need assistance with stress management, depression, anxiety, parenting support, PTSD, adjustment/life changes, interpersonal conflicts, grief and loss, and trauma. I have a warm, collaborative, and eclectic approach to therapy that includes different evidence based therapeutic frameworks to include attachment theory, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, strengths based therapy, and person centered therapy. I focus on helping people learn positive coping and communication skills to overcome barriers they face in daily life. I believe that the therapeutic alliance is the most important part of therapy, and that the most healing comes from work that is collaborative. I enjoy helping people learn how to harness their inner strength to build resiliency. The journey to self discovery starts with a single step. I look forward to working with you!

6 years of experience as a therapist

I love to support my clients on their personal journey of healing from depression, anxiety, trauma, addictions, codependency, and other challenges. My therapy practice incorporates a range of person-centered approaches, including Art Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, and Trauma Therapy. I completed my masters in Clinical Counseling and Art therapy in 2019, with a certificate in Addictions Counseling. Since then I have founded a counseling program where I still work full time, providing therapy to immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers through a local non-profit. I work with clients who have experienced profound trauma, sexual and physical abuse, domestic violence, homophobia, transphobia as well as immigration related concerns. I have also done clinical therapy work at our local crisis center, ran art therapy groups at a domestic violence shelter, and have run grief support groups for teens and adults in both English and Spanish. Prior to becoming a counselor I worked for eight years as a family advocate and case manager working with families experiencing homelessness. My work has shown me the depth and power of the human spirit, as well as it's profound ability to heal in a non- linear process of post traumatic growth. As a therapist my style is warm, collaborative and caring. I am oriented towards the person-centered approach in building a therapeutic relationship with my clients. This means that I work to meet each client "where they are" and to serve as a catalyst to each individual who is progressing through their unique process of self-discovery and developing tools to heal from trauma, depression and anxiety. I see my clients as the expert in their lives and their healing, working to draw out your strengths and shift the narrative on how you experience your limitations.

20 years of experience as a therapist

I am clinical social worker licensed in the State of New Mexico with over 20 years of experience. I have worked with clients looking to improve relationships at home, performance at work, and work/life balance. I enjoy working with clients who are looking to improve self-esteem and motivation to live their best lives. My therapy style is to listen and learn from you on what is working and what you'd like to improve. I use EMDR to help you feel more comfortable and confident in situations where you struggle socially and/or at work; Motivational Interviewing to help spur you to do the things you've always wanted to do; and Mindfulness to help you become centered and to help you learn to stop those intrusive thoughts and to react to challenges more peacefully. I truly believe that every one of us can benefit from taking the time to work on ourselves for our own sake because we want to feel better, live happier, and be the best we can be for those we care most about. Just like exercise, it starts with the first step. You've already taken two steps! You've thought about the things you'd like to change and started exploring your options of who might help. When you're ready, reach out. I'd love to hear your thoughts on what you'd like to improve in your life.

11 years of experience as a 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.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Peralta, 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 or medication as treatment, or perform psychological assessments and other psychiatric services.

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, post traumatic stress disorder, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Peralta 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 can also try a Peralta 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 Peralta 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.

Peralta 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 Peralta 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 Peralta therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Peralta 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 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 Peralta.

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 from a therapist. A Peralta 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 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 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 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 Peralta, 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.

Peralta 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.
