"Psychotherapy is the informed and intentional application of clinical methods and interpersonal stances derived from established psychological principles for the purpose of assisting people to modify their behaviors, cognitions, emotions, and/or other personal characteristics in directions that the participants deem desirable" (Norcross, 1990, p. 218-220 ) We use Freudian-based theories, object relations, attachment theories and self-psychology to assist our clients in identifying and understanding the underlying issues that may color their current relationships.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

During my 20 plus years of being in the field of Psychotherapy I have never taken the therapeutic relationship for granted. It is a unique, growth producing experience for my clients, one like no other. You as the client are deeply understood, listened to and highly respected. I offer both solution-oriented and indepth therapy for my clients. Sometimes there is an answer within the first session! Most often, however, Psychotherapy is a process where each person has their own time frame for growth. It's important to be with a Therapist that feels like a good fit I offer an intitial session to discuss what your hopes and goals are for therapy. I look forward to hearing from you.

My approach to psychotherapy is based on Compassion, Clarity, and Results. First, you will feel heard. You will be skillfully understood and supported. Second, you will gain new insights about your situation, your options, and yourself. Third, you will learn new strategies to handle the challenges in your life. Strategies that work. My focus is on supporting your strengths, often identifying strengths you did not know you had. This is where your strongest growth will come from. These will become the basis of your enjoyment of life and coping strategies when necessary.

Melissa Sanchez, LCPC, BC-DMT

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist

Within driving distance of Thornton

The process of engaging in psychotherapy can be a rich and rewarding experience. With a kind, engaging and inquisitive mind, my approach to therapy is based in humanistic, client-centered and existential philosophies. I truly believe that each person has within them the power to heal through thoughtful exploration of emotional patterns, spiritual concerns and resulting experiences. While focusing on present-moment concerns, the past will arise and show its influence. We will work together to piece out what is necessary to explore but not dive into your entire past. Sometimes this is necessary, sometimes it is not. I encourage each person to work with me in guiding their healing process.

Psychotherapy can be an intimidating term. Society has caused a lot of people to believe that seeking help has negative connotations. In reality, it's a sign of strength that you can acknowledge there's a problem and be brave enough to seek out a solution. Psychotherapy will do just that. I can help you navigate through whatever problems you may be facing and aide you in alleviating your symptoms and overcoming these obstacles.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within driving distance of Thornton

James Hillman once said, "We've had a hundred years of psychotherapy and the world is getting worse." While there are many occasions where the validation and listening endemic to psychotherapy makes sense, there are times where we over assume that "feeling better" and "changing behavior" are the same. Grey Matters International, Inc. goes after the forgotten brain laws to behavior change that therapists miss when processing hours and hours of dialogues with people. Utilizing a cutting edge technology to facilitate the emotional process of change, we can make the therapy process way more effective, faster, and with less money spent.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor & Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor

Psychotherapy - for those willing to take the journey - can be one of the most amazing experiences we do in life. When a person gets insight into their own psychological processes, and achieves that understanding of how it all comes together and interacts on a psychological level, it can be really empowering, liberating, and exciting. This can also be a bit scary to try because usually there is a lot going on before someone decides to find a therapist. But any journey starts with that first step - and that first step can be a great step.
