Hali Neves is a Licensed Professional Counselor located in Fort Collins, CO. Hali works with adults of all ages, and often sees clients who are students or young professionals who are going through major life transitions. Her clients arrive at therapy because they want support around anxiety, depression, ADHD, or overwhelming stress. They feel like they can’t control their emotions, which can lead to further feelings of frustration, disappointment, and hopelessness. Hali helps clients break free of harmful behaviors and patterns by offering a safe, comfortable space to open up and talk about what’s going on for them.
Hali utilizes an evidence-based therapy modality called Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy. This therapy modality teaches clients how to change their thought patterns to healthier versions, without assumption, judgment, or criticism. Hali also draws from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), systems therapy, and attachment theory when working with clients. She encourages clients to reflect on their pasts, including their previous relationships with others. Clients can then gain insight into why they feel the way they do in the present, such as why certain things upset them while others don’t. Hali’s goal is to teach clients the skills they need to manage their emotions so they don’t need to rely on therapy.
Hali earned a Master’s degree from Gonzaga University. She has over ten years of experience working with clients across a diverse range of needs, goals, and situations. She is a certified Daring Way facilitator, which empowers clients to be vulnerable with their emotions to gain the benefits of prioritizing connection with others.
