Susan Gutmaker, PsyD, Psychologist in Boulder
I believe healing involves the whole person-mind, body and spirit. I strive to provide a safe environment where I can guide you to use your strengths, explore your choices and move towards your goals. I can guide you to increase your self esteem through empowerment and self awareness; heal from trauma; enhance your relationships by dealing with intimacy issues, increasing communication skills and learning to resolve conflict; and move past the obstacle of fear so you can live a fuller life.
I use "talk" therapy to help you look at how the past has led you to specific patterns and choices in the present. I then help you see new possible choices and coping methods. EMDR and Thought Field Therapy are also used to facilitate the healing process.
I have extensive experience working with people with mood disorders, anxiety, history of abuse, & relationship issues. I have a warm, compassionate style and people often find that it is easy to talk to me. I accept you where you are, and will work at your pace, using your unique strengths.
