About Me

Hello and thank you for taking the time to review my profile. My name is Amelia and I am Licensed Professional Counselor in Colorado and a National Certified Counselor with over 25 years experience working in the field of behavioral healthcare. My specialties include; but are not limited to: depression, anxiety, trauma, relational issues, grief and loss, infertility and miscarriage, as well as life struggles related to self-esteem and family of origin. I am also comfortable with spiritual exploration and believe in the power of connecting with nature and the outdoors during times of intense suffering and pain.
My hope is that you'll experience a warm, welcoming and authentic space where you'll feel deeply witnessed and heard as we work together. I strive to embody a calm and caring presence where you'll enjoy the healing powers of humor and vulnerability. I want you to feel empowered to identify and mobilize your strengths to discover and sustain resiliency and perseverance. I believe each person's healing experience is unique and specific to them. With that in mind, I tailor care by utilizing active listening, intense validation, and strengths-based approaches. I subscribe to person-centered and eclectic modalities of therapy as we build a relationship that supports restoration and recovery. I would be honored to journey with you along your path to peace.

Reviews

Written by I.L. on Dec 10, 2021 after therapy with Amelia for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, parenting issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

I found Amelia to be empathetic, insightful, and easy to talk to. She gave me concrete strategies and support for dealing with a family crisis, and her suggestions about establishing boundaries and self-care truly helped me handle my anxiety. This was a short-term therapy, but I wouldn’t hesitate to request her services again. I recommend her without hesitation.
