Spirituality Therapists in Southeastern Denver, Denver, COSee all therapists in Southeastern Denver, Denver
I have experience in a variety of areas including eating disorders, mood disorders, spirituality , life transitions, addictions, grief, trauma, stress, and relationship issues.
There are a lot of beautiful things in this world, but there is nothing I have encountered more beautiful and complex than human beings. There is so much depth, mystery, beauty, pain, and meaning in each person's story. I became a therapist because of my longing to hear people's stories and meet them exactly where they are. My greatest passion is caring for people through empathy, understanding, listening, and interceding into life's painful moments. I am committed to offering my clients acceptance, compassion, and unconditional positive regard in the midst of struggle.

Pre-Licensed Professional, MA, LPCC
With clients, I have addressed important issues around anxiety, depression, ADHD, sexuality, attachment, trauma, identity, grief and loss, spirituality , and more.
Life is full of hard choices, difficult experiences, and challenging people or relationships. The struggle is real, but you need not struggle alone. As a therapist, I believe the beauty of our human experience is embedded in the fact we are designed as relational beings. Relationships create the core of the stories that make up who we are and understand ourselves to be. These relationships hold enormous power to grow and heal but also to harm and disconnect. Whether relational wounds have led to cracks, craters, or canyons, healing and movement towards wholeness emerges in an environment where a person feels known and nurtured.

Kari Marshall, MA, LPC
Licensed Professional Counselor, MA, LPC
Though I am not a religious counselor, I believe spirituality can also be an important dimension in the healing process, if a client wishes to include this.
My role as a counselor is to be a catalyst for positive life change. I believe people are naturally inclined towards health & happiness and that life crisis can be an opportunity for growth and for people to uncover and develop hidden strengths. My style is collaborative, down to earth and empathetic, with a touch of humor. I strive to provide an atmosphere of non-judgmental acceptance, respect and understanding. I use Reflective Listening, education on Healthy Relationships and encouragement of insight along with Client-Centered, CBT and Strength-Based methods. I enjoy helping clients wanting to live happier, more fullful lives.

I see life as a story, and we hold the pens to our next steps. Some chapters of our stories are wonderful, some are more difficult, and all of them combined make us who we are. I believe that everyone has much to tell, and I'd love to hear your story. I am passionate about helping people live the lives they desire, holding space for mystery and wonder as each person’s path unfolds, and integrating mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health into a holistic approach. I often use a narrative therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and existential lens in session.

Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
Have you ever felt better after a having a deep conversation? I view psychotherapy, which is largely a talk-therapy, as just that--having a deep conversation with someone. Only here, within the confidential confines of the consulting room, you are having said deep conversations with a licensed mental health professional, such as myself. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, so I place primacy of mental health on interpersonal relationships. I also received my Master's degree in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, which had an emphasis on what is known as Depth Psychology.
Licensed Professional Counselor, MA, LPC, RMT
Do you find yourself trying to make sense of loss, transition or change? Such times can leave you feeling stuck, overwhelmed, lost, alone and exhausted. Maybe you are struggling to find yourself, what you care about, who you really are, what you want to be in this world and how to go forward. Sometimes life just has a way of undoing us and sometimes we need a little help to get on track, to find our center and to not feel so alone. I believe each of us has our own wisdom, desires growth and healing, and wants to make a difference… and sometimes we loose our way.
Christopher A. St. John
Licensed Professional Counselor, MA, LPC
More and more people are having trouble knowing who they are or where they belong in life. What we were taught growing up or what we learn from society doesn't make sense or apply any longer. Because of this, we have difficulties from depression to questioning our own belief system. It may appear as confusion, anxiety, anger, or anything that disrupts our day-to-day life. When we feel this way it is a hurt or loss that is almost impossible to describe. My type of counseling presents people with an opportunity to understand why and how they think and feel the way they do and to go deeper than they could have possibly imagined!
Katie Mae Dierker
Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate, MA, NCC
I believe that each of us has the ability to heal from the experiences in our lives that caused suffering or left us feeling wounded. However, exploring this pain and sharing our stories can feel both scary and intimidating. I create a safe, compassionate container for you to draw upon your courage to look inward and explore the wounds that bring you to therapy. My holistic approach to therapy tends to the whole person, incorporating the mind, body, and spirit to support the healing process. Drawing upon my mindfulness-based skills, experience, and clinical expertise I accompany each person on their journey of growth and discovery.
Are you feeling disconnected with yourself? Are you struggling with anxiety, hopelessness, and depression. Are you having relationship problems? As a Jungian oriented Intern, I aim to help seniors, adults, and adolescents with issues that may be hidden from oneself. These can be issues and symptoms that are underlying and affecting your sense of self and interactions with others. Using collaboration, communication and genuineness can help you to find the real you and a sense of alignment with yourself and others.
Counselor, LPCC, MA
The question, "why now?" is one of the most simplistic, yet deeply profound questions to ask when deciding to enter therapy. Discovering your "why" is one of the first steps of moving towards what therapy is ultimately about: self-awareness. As a therapist, I don't claim to have all the answers or a magic cure. In fact, I think the most lasting changes in therapy occur as clients come to a deeper self-awareness of their own lives. I view my role as a therapist as being able to partner with clients and walk alongside them as they journey towards greater self-awareness.
William N Costas
Psychologist, PsyD, PC
Self discovery, personal growth and a clear idea of your life's purpose are what you will achieve during your sessions. You will leave your emotional pain behind and discover ways to fully and deeply participate in life. Depression, anxiety, feeling lost or any of our other struggles reflect that our lives are out of balance. Create the life you deserve. The answers are not complicated. The journey is fun. Sometimes hard. Always rewarding. For over 35 years I have helped my clients step into their power, live fully from their heart and embrace their true self as they experience all that life has to offer. Thank you.

What should I expect from therapy that incorporates a focus on spirituality?
Spirituality can mean different things to different individuals, depending on their experiences, beliefs, and life histories. Some individuals focus on strengthening their belief system, while others experience spirituality in secular ways, such as through meditation, yoga, or by spending time in nature. Clients can expect a therapist to help guide and grow their spirituality through any of these techniques, encouraging the individual to cope with the challenges they face and develop strategies to build resilience and purpose to improve their outlook in life.
What are the most common treatments that include spirituality?
There are several treatments that incorporate spirituality. Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) helps a person examine and reframe their negative thoughts and behaviors. Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) focuses on emotional acceptance and psychological flexibility. Existential therapy is most often used to address anxiety, depression, grief, loneliness, apathy, despair, questions of identity, and feelings of purposelessness and existential dread. Transpersonal therapy focuses on a client’s spirituality and meaning in life and may incorporate techniques including meditation, visualization, hypnotherapy, dream analysis, and or breathwork.
Can therapy incorporating spirituality help atheistic or agnostic individuals?
Yes. For non-believers, spirituality can offer benefits including a greater sense of connection to others and to the natural world. An interest in spirituality may also spur individuals to pursue mindfulness practices, or to contemplate their purpose in life and how to achieve it.
How effective is spirituality as a therapeutic remedy?
Research suggests spirituality is generally beneficial for individuals. It is correlated with better health habits, such as less substance use, and an improved capacity to cope with stress and other mental health challenges. Increased spirituality can lead individuals to become more empathic and less materialistic, as well.
