Connect with Michael Gay
I support clients using experiential and somatic approaches to mobilize root emotional content that cannot be accessed or moved through traditional talk therapy. I have substantial experience in working with trauma, grief, and depression. I work with men's issues and facilitate workshops and retreats. I have also worked as a therapist in addiction treatment and recovery. I began working in the field of therapy and counseling in 2006 as a Wilderness Therapy guide for teens and young adults doing intensive healing and transformation work in a group setting.
Experiential and somatic approaches support healing and transformation because they mobilize emotional content in ways intellectual approaches can't. I support clients in experiencing and expressing deeply held emotional content. Awareness alone often doesn't bring the movement people seek. Experiential approaches can support deep transformation.
I have a private office centrally located in Boulder. I also do wilderness based work, family therapy intensive weekends, and experiential work based on client interest and needs. Call or email with any questions about me, how I work, or general approaches to therapeutic topics. Free 20 minute consultation. Please explore my website for more detail.
