I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the states of Colorado and New Mexico. I specialize in grief, loss and life transition counseling. I have worked in acute care hospital settings, plus palliative and hospice care organizations for many years helping families and individuals at pivotal points in their life. I have a special interest and experience in older adults as they face difficult challenges and decisions regarding advanced care planning, and downsizing. Often people face isolation, loss of independence and increased independence on others, all at the same time. I understand these life transitions can happen in a moment, and are often paired with a traumatic life event. I start by learning your story, in your words, at your pace. Curiosity leads the conversation and often results in feeling heard and seen as you truly are, not as you think others expect you to be. Through greater understanding of ourselves and what motivates us, we can often find new or renewed interest and joy in our life. It takes courage to acknowledge the range of feelings that accompany loss, grief and life transitions. Feelings of overwhelm can mix with feeling dull and unable to find joy in our lives. I understand these feeling first hand and know the value of seeking help with moving through uncomfortable, painful times in our lives. I look forward to hearing your story and helping you as you work through difficult, sad or confusing times in your life.

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)

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

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

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Wagon Mound 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 Wagon Mound 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 Wagon Mound, 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.

Wagon Mound 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.
