I am an inclusive LGBTQ + provider and EMDR trained therapist.
Hello, I'm Autumn. Pronouns: She, Her, Hers. I am a Master's level therapist. I believe that life is about finding beauty in all places. When we are presented with change, we have presented with the opportunity to grow. You are the eye that has the power to create perspective and provide meaning through life's detours. We are often are taught that experiencing a change in life alone is a superpower. While this is possible, my philosophy is that we do our best when we are supported. I hope that you give me the opportunity to witness your path to growth and healing. Please note that I am seeing clients via telehealth on Mondays only.

I am particularly passionate about working with LGBTQIA + individuals, and prioritize creating a safe space for this work, and all therapeutic work.
Families are facing so many challenges, and taking that step to seek outside help is vital and brave. Before looking for a therapist, you've likely striven to help your child or teen in other ways at home and school. My primary role as your child's therapist is to collaborate with you and your child/teen to clearly identify strengths and struggles, and come up with a game plan to build connection, confidence, and stability. I utilize cognitive-behavioral, DBT, and trauma-focused approaches that are proven to reduce depression, anxiety, emotion dysregulation, and interpersonal conflicts.

I help my clients navigate the human experience and issues related to trauma, relationships, depression, anxiety, substance use/addiction, LGBTQIA + concerns, and identity development.
Being human is messy and we all struggle at times, you are not alone! Embarking on a journey towards healing can feel intimidating, which is why finding a trusted helper matters. I believe that my clients are the experts of their own experiences and that therapy should be individualized to their needs and worldview. I place importance on creating space for my clients to feel their emotions, express themselves authentically, and explore their change process, through a kind, supportive, and empathic relationship.

If you are part of the LGBTQIA community, I am well-equipped and would be honored to help you navigate the complex terrain of love, loss, identity exploration, family dynamics, and family planning.
Are you or your child struggling with anxiety or depression? Is your child or adolescent struggling to manage their big emotions, or having issues at home or in school? Perhaps you are in need of someone to support you as you navigate your own challenging relationship dynamics? Whether you are interested in personal development, healing emotional wounds, or looking to support someone you love, reaching out for support can be a daunting, yet rewarding decision. With 10 years of experience working with individuals, families and children in a variety of settings, I understand how layered and complicated life can feel at times.

I'm open to clients from all walks of life and work diligently to support those from marginalized communities such as LGBTQA and Persons of Color. I'm so excited to meet you and can't wait to get to work!

Trauma, by definition, is "a deeply distressing or disturbing experience." Everyone has experienced a traumatic experience at some point. Sometimes we can process those experiences and carry on with our lives without any problem. Sometimes those experiences cause us to feel stuck, have increased anxiety, and irritability, have nightmares and be easily triggered. -It doesn't have to stay that way.- New Foundation Counseling provides trauma-focused therapy to all, regardless of age, gender, race, political or spiritual affiliation. Everyone is welcome. We specialize in working with pre-teens/teens and the LGBTQ + community/allies..

***Virtual online therapy only at this time.*** Life can become difficult at times. We have fears and regrets, anxieties and sorrows, insecurities and doubts. People are searching for greater happiness, healthier relationships, increased meaning, and rewarding accomplishments. But despite these challenges, I believe we all have the power to overcome. Bodies can be transformed, hearts can be healed, fears can be conquered, and depression can be overcome. The act of being seen, heard, and understood is healing in and of itself. My approach to therapy is one of being very genuine and often mixing in humor.

Are you feeling shrouded in shame and confusion about your sexual desires or identity? Do activities that once brought feelings of closeness and pleasure now bring up loneliness and uncertainty? Sexual issues are completely normal, and you nor your partner are broken. My goal is to help you move towards feeling self-empowered and comfortable in your own skin. Sex and sexual identity are very personal topics that can feel embarrassing or isolating to speak to someone about - everyone is deserving of happiness and inner peace, and I am committed to helping you find your voice so you can advocate for your needs and desires.

I love working with adults who are curious about themselves and who are ready to look at their past, including any trauma that has impacted their life. I am trained in EMDR which is a powerful treatment modality that helps process traumatic or distressing events and memories. I use assessments that have been validated and researched to ensure that I understand what you are going through. As we work together, I will ask about what is working best for you and will tailor my approach as needed. Please note: this Psychology Today Profile is maintained by my employer, SKB Therapy.

By now you may feel like you've tried everything. Perhaps your home has become a battleground, filled with fights that repeat over and over without any progress. Maybe you feel like you have hit a wall with your partner and aren’t sure how to move forward, or maybe you feel stuck, watching from the sidelines as your child navigates the many challenges of adolescence. Taking action can help resolve these feelings of helplessness and taking the initiative to seek treatment is the first step forward. If you or your child is struggling to live a fulfilling life—or even struggling to make it through the day—it’s time to seek help.

What type of Wheat Ridge mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Wheat Ridge?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
