The relationship between counselor and client is the backbone of therapy. A client needs a person they can open up to and trust. A counselor needs a client who will be open and honest. I work hard to make every client know that they are the focus of each and every session. By whatever path a client arrives in my office, I seek to know and understand that journey. My approach to therapy comes from both my life experiences as well as my educational journey. These experiences allow me to create a non-judgmental space where I can meet each client where they currently are.

I approach counseling from a deeply compassionate and humanist point of view. “I focus on whole persons in relationship to one another, others in their lives, and their relationship to the world.” This approach provides people with a compassionate form of counseling that enables them to explore new possibilities for being and success. It also enables clients to move from a mindset of exaggerated individualism toward a deeper, more meaningful purpose to and understanding of their identity. My approach emphasizes a greater perspective on relationships, not just individuality.

My name is Kris Godinez, LPC. Counseling is a journey a journey that can and frankly should have a healthy dose of humor in it! If you are looking for one of those "blank screen" counselors that do and say. nothing, I'm not that kind of counselor. Yes counseling is serious business, but it does not have to be dull. I find that when people are laughing and learning they tend to retain what they have learned. I use CBT and a lot of humor! I also tend to swear like a sailor so if that is a problem, let me know and I will try not to drop the F bomb so much!

Have you ever observed how much of human behavior is driven by our basic human needs for balance and connection? Think about the ways we risk and reach for our partners. Think about how you cope when you feel lonely or rejected or the ways you mask the discomfort of feeling overwhelmed or depressed. It might show up as an eating disorder, conflict in your relationship or sexual issues, even stress at work. If you feel the ways you navigate life stressors are not as effective as you would like I am here to help. I see therapy as a safe, secure place to work through life’s challenges in a collaborative, non-judgemental environment.

How can I find a therapist in Mesa?

Search for nearby therapists or counselors by inputting your city, town, or suburb; or zip code; or a provider’s name into the search bar.

To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
