Qualifications

I am a licensed psychotherapist.  Colorado is unique in that one doesn’t have to be licensed to register with the state as a psychotherapist.  This means that people with a wide range of training – from none, to advanced, can say they are a psychotherapist.  So, make sure that whomever you chose to work with is a licensed psychotherapist, with an advanced graduate degree in social work, counseling or psychology and that they are licensed by the state of Colorado to practice psychotherapy.
