Announcement icon I offer in-office sessions and video sessions to residents of Colorado.
Gena Hicks is not currently accepting new clients.
As a psychologist, I bring warmth, kindness, and a sense of humor in combination with results-focused expertise. I have over 16 years of full-time experience providing group and individual therapy. I continue to seek out training and development, and I love this work even more now than when I started. My experience includes 4 years working with military veterans and 6 years (pre-doctoral) working with college students. I enjoy working with other therapists--either in therapy or clinical supervision. I desire and welcome opportunities to work with clients from ethnic and cultural backgrounds different than my own.
I have particular expertise in depression, anxiety disorders, OCD, Illness Anxiety Disorder, sexual trauma, PTSD, and C-PTSD. I am certified in EMDR, CPT, and PE--which are PTSD. treatments. Currently training in AEDP and IFS which are especially helpful for those who have experienced attachment trauma and grew up with emotionally immature parents.
My primary focus is individual therapy for adults. I enjoy collaborating with medical doctors and couples therapists. I became a psychologist because I enjoy people, had first-hand experience with mental illness in my family of origin, and believe God called me to this vocation which is an excellent fit with my personality and life experiences.
