Joe Benedetti, BA
I am a student at Adams State University pursuing my Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I believe the best perspective for assisting individuals in resolving their emotional and personal issues and problems is the wellness model of mental health. I focus on building a therapeutic relationship and help clients explore issues that directly affect them. I accept clients where they are, establish rapport, and help provide motivation. Most issues individuals face in life are developmental in nature and understanding the dynamics of human growth and development is essential to success as a helper. I teach clients how to correct faulty information processing so they can view situations more realistically. I believe counseling is for everyone and believe in the power to humor.
Personally, I am a Colorado native and huge sports fan. I enjoy exercising, cooking, ancient history but mostly, I cherish spending time with my 13-year-old daughter.
Alexa Seback, BA
I received my bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Family Studies from Colorado State University and am currently pursuing my master’s degree in Counseling at Adams State University. I am passionate about supporting children and their families through various transitions and seasons of life. I have worked with homeless families, women facing crisis pregnancies, and children who have experienced severe trauma. My time working with children in foster care strongly influenced my desire to pursue a career in counseling and learn about trauma-informed care. All families face challenging circumstances at some point or another and I believe it is crucial for each member of the family to receive the support they need for the family to thrive. I aspire to meet each client where they are at with empathy and care and believe there is something to learn from each person I meet.
I am originally from Colorado and love spending time in the mountains with family and friends. I enjoy skiing, hiking, painting, and reading in my spare time.
