Andrea Begin

(MA, LPC)

About Me

I am a professional counselor licensed in Colorado with 16 years of counseling experience in a variety of settings including emergency rooms, hospital medical floors, counseling centers, wilderness, and private practice. I am currently a behavioral health specialist providing crisis counseling for clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, psychosis, dementia, ADHD, OCD and drug/alcohol addictions. I work closely with clients experiencing trauma and abuse.

I am a client centered, strengths based, trauma counselor who works with individuals, couples, families and groups toward getting stronger, accepting responsibility to move forward, and psychological healing. I am trained in Brain Spotting, CBT, DBT, gestalt, and motivational interviewing. I work with the client to identify treatment issues, develop treatment plans, and create a strong follow through in the counseling process. I enjoy most things outdoors and when working with clients I also encourage them to use the natural landscape as a way to work through their problems. I am a wife and mother of 2 young children. I understand the stress with relationships, challenges of raising children and difficulty finding time for oneself.

Counseling is not usually described as fun or easy, but if you are ready to work hard you will find that things in your life become more fun and easier to manage. You took the hardest step by signing up for counseling. Now allow me to work with you on your journey toward your end goal. I look forward to working with you.

Since working with Andrea, I have been so much happier. She has truly changed my life for the better. I can’t thank her enough for how much she has helped me :)

Andrea is a great therapist! I felt comfortable sharing so much with her she’s a great listener. Being from a different culture, she was always understanding and never judgmental.

I appreciated how she always helped me find the root of an issue or remind me of my thinking patterns.

I worked with her on my inner confidence, self-love, anxiety and stress, relationship and communication and so much more, every week I learned something new. I loved how her approach to therapy is realistic and easy, genuine and not at all demanding. I like that we don’t text all the time we work on what’s important.

I’m thankful for all the techniques she helped me to get through my anxiety and stress, also the communication tips.

Andrea is amazing. She really listens, and her insight and advice is always specific and helpful. I like that she shares about her life too so you can have a conversation back and forth. Gives the sessions a more natural feel instead of being under the microscope. She always messages back in a timely manner and checks up if I haven't responded in a while. Hope to have her for a while.

Andrea has been very helpful in helping me see patterns, being a neutral voice that I really needed to face some things in my life.
