What is counseling?

Counseling, also known as psychotherapy, is a professional relationship that empowers diverse individuals, families, and groups to accomplish mental health, wellness, education, and career goals. Counselors work with clients on strategies to overcome obstacles and personal challenges they are facing. Professional Counselors are equipped to diagnose and treat mental and behavioral health disorders. The field of counseling, unlike coaching, is regulated by state boards and in most states, a professional license is needed to practice. Marquita Myrick is a “Licensed Professional Counselor” in both Colorado and Georgia and she’s also a National Certified Counselor (NCC.)

She’s worked in a variety of settings to include a college counseling center, outpatient work at community mental health centers, residential, an eating disorder hospital and private practice settings. She currently practices telehealth which involves the practice of caring for clients remotely via a HIPAA compliant platform.

She’s skilled at treating adolescents and adults and her specialties include depression, anxiety, trauma, relationsip issues, parenting and career performance. She has experience working with military families and individuals adjusting to major or minor life transitions.

Why counseling?

We all go through trials in life and everyone experiences anxiety or sadness on some level. If you feel you’ve maxed out your mental capacity when it comes to dealing with your problems, it may be time to seek therapy. Frequent tearfulness, feelings of hopelessness, questions about your existence or loss of desire to participate in previously enjoyed activities can all be signs of depression.

Marquita can help…but only if you take the first step by reaching out. She looks forward to helping you on your life journey!

The investment for a 50 minute clinical session is $160. Marquita is not contracted with insurance providers, however, an insurance ready statement (Superbill) can be provided for clients interested in applying the cost of services towards their annual deductible or getting reimbursed through their insurance carrier’s Out-of-Network benefits.
