Sometimes, navigating life's difficulties requires the help of a professional. No matter what your life experience, working with a therapist can be a step toward growth. Barriers to treatment, like a lack of available providers or transportation concerns, can make it challenging to find an in-person provider. An online platform like BetterHelp can make treatment more flexible and convenient.

With BetterHelp, you can work with a clinical psychologist, licensed professional counselor, or clinical mental health counselor from the comfort of your home at a time that works for you. Plus, you can change providers anytime until you find one with whom you have a good therapeutic relationship.

Therapists on the platform are experienced in counseling psychology and familiar with a broad range of treatment modalities. Whether you’re experiencing the stress of navigating the criminal justice system or dealing with life challenges like domestic violence, abuse, or other types of trauma, a therapist will work with you to understand your personal experience and help you learn coping skills for daily life.

If you’re looking for an online therapist, NM has many options. The psychologists, counselors, and social workers listed below are licensed to provide online treatment across New Mexico.

I am a licensed counselor with over 25 years experience in providing therapy. My areas of knowledge include grief and trauma therapy, treatment for anxiety and depression, and issues for LGBTQ individuals. I believe in the life transforming power of mindfulness and also employ dialectical behavioral therapy, psychodynamic process, and Rogerian theory which focuses on empathy and unconditional positive regard from the therapist to the client. My focus as a therapist is to provide a safe and compassionate space in which a person can gain self knowledge, self compassion and kindness. Each person is unique and my goal is to provide individualized treatment and support to each person I work with. I welcome the opportunity and the privilege of providing guidance and support to each person on their journey of self discovery and healing.

35 years of experience

I have had a licensed private practice as a psychologist for more than 35 years. In my practice, I have focused on issues of stress, anxiety, avoidance, self-control, relationship problems, and life restructuring. Before my full-time private practice, I was a tenured professor of clinical psychology at two major universities. I was the director of clinical training at one university and the chairman of the Psychology Department at the other. I also have experience working as a divorce mediator, a parenting consultant, a psychological evaluator, and a life coach. My approach to therapy is goal specific, action oriented, and solution oriented. It involves skill building and awareness and it focuses on empowering the client to develop the skills and control necessary for meaningful and lasting change. The client is helped to create specific, achievable, and realistic goals. The goals are refined and organized and are placed within a workable time-frame. Strategies to achieve the goals are developed, practiced, and revised. Personal awareness, effective choice, method, and skill-building are emphasized. Awareness and self-management methods are developed. The result is the acquisition of desired changes, restored feelings of well-being and self-confidence, and a renewed sense of self-control and independence. I appreciate how important the issues are to those who have entrusted me with their confidence. I look forward to helping my clients resolve those issues. I love what I do and have been gratified by my clients’ enthusiasm and success.

Hi, my name is Stacey Bohlmann. I am credentialed in the state of South Dakota as a LPC-MH, (Licensed Professional Counselor-Mental Health), a LAC (Licensed Addiction Counselor) and as a QMHP (Qualified Mental Health Professional) I am glad you took your first step of reaching out to me. I believe there are times in our lives when we need someone to help us navigate through our experiences. Whether it is dealing with a deep sadness, having an anxious mood, having trauma or making important decisions regarding life and/or relationships, this is a good place to work through this things. In my practice, I am “laid back”, meaning I am accepting of all people I work with and am honored to meet them where they are at in their journey toward wellness. I tend to pose thoughts as questions in order to allow a person the freedom to search within themselves for various possible solutions. My goal is to provide a safe, secure environment that promotes healing from mental and emotional pain. I provide services from a person centered, reality, existential base while keeping in mind short term solution focused therapy. Through the use of multiple modalities, based on each individual’s needs, I help people consider their situation and discover options in their life that will help them feel control over their life and situation. I believe that when we are trying to make changes in our life, many time it takes practice to master “problem areas” thus, my belief is that it is healthy for each of us to feel comfortable and confident to approach therapy at various times throughout life.

I have worked in several different settings including foster care, a group residence, a domestic violence shelter, schools, an assisted living home, outpatient mental health clinics as well as private practice. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns and personal goals. I enjoy being able to work with people who are desiring to identify their purpose, build their self esteem and confidence, and learn more about themselves throughout the process. My counseling style is eclectic, engaging and interactive. I believe that every person deserves to have someone that they can talk to, gain insight from and connect with that will not interfere with their daily living. Family and friends are great supports and often times will provide what they think we want them to provide and not what we really want or what really need. I like to create personal and professional goals with individuals based on their interests, opinions, and skills not based on other people's opinions of them. I often will use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Rational Emotive Therapy with a humanistic and solution focused approach. Everyone benefits from being able to have a coach, a therapist, someone on their side. I would love to be able to work with you and assist you in being the best version of yourself.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some commonly asked questions can be found below.

How much does a therapist cost?

Mental health professionals can differ in price. Forbes found that the average cost of in-person therapy in the US is around $100 to $200 per hour. Pricing can also vary based on your location. 

BetterHelp offers payment plans of $60 to $90 per session, charged monthly in a lump sum. You can also take advantage of this pricing on one of BetterHelp's sister platforms, like ReGain for couples or TeenCounseling for teens aged 13 to 19.

Many therapists may be upfront about their pricing and whether or not they take health insurance from the beginning. Additionally, some in your area may offer a sliding scale plan to allow those with lower incomes to pay less for therapy. However, services online can often save individuals a few hundred dollars per month.

How do I know if I should get a therapist?

Mental health services and mental health providers may help you navigate various concerns. 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 advice. A counselor may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Mental health issues don't always present as a crisis. Many professionals provide talk therapy and support for life transitions, skills learning, relationship problems, or life coaching. Online therapy sessions in New Mexico can allow clients seeking therapy to experience professional help through video, phone, or live chat sessions without commuting to an office.

Does insurance cover therapy?

Different counseling services can vary in cost. Therapists must apply to accept insurance through insurance companies, which may take time and money, so not every therapist offers services through insurance. If you cannot find a therapist that accepts your plan, BetterHelp may be cheaper than visiting an in-person therapist.

Is online therapy safe?

Online therapy through BetterHelp and its sister platforms is safe. Therapists are licensed, experienced, and vetted before being contracted with the platform. If you experience any concerns with your therapist, you change your counselor through the platform or app at any time.
