Short answer Yes!

It is a misconception to think you must wait until you have “hit rock bottom” or are struggling to start therapy.  We all have family dynamics to explore, struggles in relationships, struggles with feeling happy, grateful, or excited.  We also sometimes have the urge to grow or outgrow things that no longer serve us.   Therapy provides a comfortable space to explore all these feelings with someone who is unbiased.  The therapist is not part of our inner circle and does not have the emotional attachment, or history that our family and friends have with us.

Do your research ahead of time, look at specific specialties that the therapist has, do a complimentary consultation. Likely within 1-2 sessions you will be able to recognize if it is a good fit.  Rest assured that if you find it is not a good fit, there are multiple therapists to choose from.  Reach out to Becky if you are finding you need another option for a therapist.

Therapy is a process and sometimes difficult to describe.  It is your time and space for processing thoughts, feelings in your body, past struggles, current successes no matter how small.  Therapy can sometimes bring up difficult emotions and feelings. Overall, it should feel like a comfortable space to open up and get your thoughts and feelings out, while not feeling judged.  You can stop and start therapy at any time, it is beneficial to track your progress session to session.   Some of the benefits could include- creating positive habits for yourself, learning self-compassion, learning to set boundaries.  Sessions are typically 50 minutes. 

Yes! 100% confidential. We only report utilization numbers back to your employer, there won't be any demographics that could jeopardize your confidentiality. 

The only limit to your confidentiality is if we are mandated to report based on the information you share. This will only be the case if you report child abuse, elder abuse, suicidal ideation, and/or homicidal ideation.

Good for you! We can still offer support to you in a coaching platform, holding you accountable for your wellness goals. You'll also find a plethora of resources in our Self Care Community you'd be able to take advantage of.

If interested, you are still encouraged to book a 20 min Support Session to review what your next best steps are. 

YES! Absolutely! As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I have witnessed hundreds of clients who were struggling with depression, anxiety, and many other negative emotions that were severely impacting their day to day success and well being. For many of them, coming to counseling was almost too little too late.

I believe that through consistent self care we can PREVENT things like depression, anxiety, and other negative emotions. Through taking care of yourself first and foremost, you can be the best YOU, best husband/wife/partner, best mother/father, best in your career, your best EVERYTHING!

Great work! You have a few options.

Great question!

Support Sessions: 20 minutes in length, brief intervention, and solutions focused support. To be held during Wed and Thurs during your workday. Ideal for stress, work/life balance, accountability, life transitions, etc. 

Therapy: 50 minutes in length. More traditional therapy support, to be held during work hours (can use your clinic time) or off site outside of work hours in our Fort Collins or Eaton office. Better support for depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, etc. 

CLINIC TIME:  Paid “clinic time” will be allotted to County employees who are enrolled either in the County Health Plan to use for visits to the Weld County Employee Medical Clinic OR any employee who is seeking care under the Weld County Employee Counseling and Well-being Resources Program.  Clinic time is for EMPLOYEE visits only, not that of a family member.   

Clinic time is allotted only when utilizing the on-site resources of the employee medical clinic or the mental health counseling services at the Greeley Chase Building (or through virtual visits). 

Eligible employees are allotted up to eight (8) paid visits to either of the designated sites during scheduled work hours, per calendar year, instead of being required to use their accrued leave.   There is a maximum of three (3) hours allowed per visit.
