Welcome to my site, and my practice.  My name is Gail Carson-Webb, and I am a licensed clinical psychologist.  My telebehavioral health practice and current credentialing  allow me to offer online services to individuals in Colorado, Minnesota, Tennessee, and many other states.

You may be asking if counseling is right for you, or someone you love.  If you are seeking to . . .

  • reduce your stress load--or manage it more effectively
  • find relief from anxiety  
  • improve your mood
  • address unresolved trauma
  • find ways to increase your satisfaction with your life    
  • feel better about yourself--who you are and where you're going
  • find ways to assert yourself--without being unnecessarily submissive or aggressive
  • improve your ability to handle communication challenges that trigger distress
  • understand and change old patterns of behavior that don't seem to be working anymore
  • deal with caregiver burnout … and more …

… psychotherapy can be an extremely helpful tool.  Often, people are unsure of whether therapy is "right" for them, or if their problems are "bad enough" to warrant therapy.  Most people who seek counseling are experiencing ordinary life and relationship problems that just don't seem to be improving satisfactorily.  In truth, it is often better to seek therapy earlier in order to "head off" some unnecessary problems--and pain--rather than wait so late that there is no question about whether help is warranted.  By the time people ask themselves whether they could benefit from therapy--the answer is usually yes.

How Can Therapy Help Me?

Therapy can:  

  • provide a safe, supportive environment to discuss and explore your needs
  • provide privacy in the assessment of your choices and problems
  • help you identify why certain choices or behaviors are getting you what you don't want 
  • help you formulate a plan to get out of an emotional or behavioral rut
  • help you utilize your strengths in overcoming, reducing, or sidestepping problem areas
  • facilitate building new skills to manage stresses and life problems
  • help you identify your particular "inner voice" that knows--and is trying to tell you--what you want and need 
  • help you improve the quality of your life   

Why Should I Choose Therapy over Working on the Problem Alone?

Working on a problem alone, or with family, friends, or co-workers, is usually our first line of defense, and it’s a valid line of defense when we’re able to identify good resources we find personally helpful, or when the people around us are supportive, or try to be.  Examining our own problems--and having a support system--are huge aids that often get us through tough times.  When that’s enough – wonderful! But sometimes what we typically do just isn't enough.  When your efforts don't seem to be working, or when family and friends don't seem to help in spite of their efforts, additional action is worth considering.  It can be helpful to work with someone whose life work has been focused on offering support and guidance to clarify needs and appropriate paths in the face of confusion and conflict.  Experiences suggesting professional support is the next step include:

  • revisiting the same old problems with no improvement
  • becoming discouraged, or feeling disempowered or downright hopeless
  • re-circulating self-blame and shame because of a belief that you ‘should’ have ‘gotten over this’ by now
  • experiencing increased tension between yourself and your loved ones
  • ineffectively managing responsibilities because of stress
  • feeling like you're getting nowhere
  • feeling like you're getting somewhere, but way too slowly
  • experiencing changes in your energy, concentration, or eating/sleeping habits because of stress 
  • experiencing intrusions from the past into your present in negative ways
  • finding yourself working harder and harder to try to keep emotional pain or distress from showing while feeling your efforts to be less and less successful
  • feeling annoyed by or worried about the impact of problems on your day-to-day life

These are just some of the circumstances that suggest it's time to seek therapy.  Many people feel that therapy should only be reserved for times when stress is the most severe and one’s outlook most discouraged.  But remember, being pro-active earlier, prior to problems becoming so dire, often allows therapy to be more effective sooner.
