Mental Health

My name is Helene Watson and I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Colorado. I have worked in community mental health centers in Colorado since 1998. My mental health experience includes working with individuals with a variety of mental health concerns. I work with children, adults, families and groups. You may remember me from Solvista Health where I have worked for the past 10 years. I am now in private practice. I am able to work with most private insurances and accept out of pocket payment. I can be contacted at 719-221-6937. I am conveniently located in the Sherman Building at 123 G Street Suite 8 in Salida, CO (across from Cafe Dawn). The therapeutic approach I deliver is person centered, culturally sensitive and strengths based.
I provide individual, couples and family psychotherapy using a holisitic perspective, combining the body, heart, mind and spirit. My approach is eclectic, blending cognitive-behavioral techniques, family therapy systems, relational techniques and mindfulness techniques with an appreciation of Jungian psychology as a base. My practice has always been in rural areas, so I have worked with people dealing with a whole range of issues, including; anxiety and depression, PTSD, ADD, relationship issues, divorce, family issues, sexual issues, bipolar, grief, anger management, self-esteem, and spiritual issues. I work with pre-teens, adolesents, adults and older adults.
