MATT BYNUM, MA LPC

Research shows that the most important variable in the effectiveness of therapy is the relationship between client and therapist, or the “therapeutic alliance.” So, allow me to introduce myself! I grew up in Evergreen, Colorado. I attended Western Colorado University in Gunnison, Colorado and graduated with a B.A. in Outdoor Leadership. I went on to instruct wilderness backpacking courses, climbing trips, and mountaineering adventures for adolescents and young adults for over a decade. During that time, I worked at numerous organizations including the Colorado Outward Bound School, Colorado Mountain College, and the Eagle Rock School. During my graduate studies at Naropa University, I was offered a therapist intern position at People House, a non-profit that offers reduced fee counseling for people in the Denver area. This experience and community shaped who I would become as a therapist. I graduated from Naropa University with a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. After graduating, I went on to work at a small therapy group practice in Boulder called the Metis Center and served men in addiction recovery at a treatment center called Choice House for two years. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Colorado. I have many interests aside from counseling which enable me to show up fully in the therapy seat. I enjoy rock climbing, backpacking, traveling, and most of all, practicing the martial art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I also love spending time with friends and family, and logging quality time with my wife. I believe that life is filled with challenges that we are not meant to take on alone. Having a variety of experiences in outdoor education, community-based non-profits and addiction treatment enables me to bring a variety of perspectives into the room with clients. I approach each relationship as valuable and I utilize a collaborative, strengths-based approach with each individual I work with. I integrate a variety of theoretical lenses which allow for new experiences to take place. These include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Contemplative Psychotherapy, as well as Psychodramatic, existential, and Experiential modalities. I love watching clients take charge of their lives, and step into more autonomy, bravery, and ownership of their story through the therapeutic process. Through our work together, you will gain increased self-awareness, authenticity, and practical tools to help you deal with life’s difficulties. Together, change is possible.

PAMELA CHAPMAN, LCSW

Does talking about your feelings sounds as fun as having a root canal? Have you been told by someone you need to get help but fear opening Pandora’s box because you aren’t sure what will spill out? Why would you want to talk about your feelings if it is going to suck right? Those are all good questions and ones I have asked myself. Over the years I have realized through dealing with challenges in my own life that learning to Embrace the Suck in life is important. Change is not unicorns and rainbows; it can be ugly and dirty. That's where I come in. I have 10 years of experience helping individuals who struggle with PTSD, anger, depression and anxiety. I help people who have looked in the mirror and not recognized the person staring back at them or have ever wondered " how in the hell did I end up here". I am trained in many different types of therapy such as CBT, EFT, CPT and DBT and can help you! If you are new therapy, or reluctant to dive into and deal with the crap that is coming up in life, I can help. Together, we can get to the core of what is making you feel stressed out and overwhelmed. I’m passionate about helping people talk about and work through their feelings even when it’s really the last thing they want to do. Call me if I can help!

DEVON EDWARDS, MA, LPCC

Integrated holistic healing is not unidimensional, nor could it be. The concept of integrated healing is one which encompasses the whole. That being the mind, body and spirit of an individual. As an integrated health coach and mental health counselor, this is not simply my job, but my calling and deepest passion. “Helping guide individuals who seek a deeper understanding of their inherent sense of wholeness, freedom and liveliness.” As a former collegiate athlete, gym owner, and integrated health coach, responsibility and overcoming adversity have become essential characteristics towards my way of being. These experiences matched with the teachings found at Naropa University allow me to bring forth an alternative approach to mental health counseling. I would love to hear from you. I currently have openings and am exhilarated by the opportunity to work with men, adolescents, and teenagers wanting to improve their mental health. We will work towards seeking greater clarity, fostering awareness, and shifting maladaptive behaviors and ideologies.

JOHN HAGUE, MA, LPC

Do you find yourself trying to control outcomes in your relationships only to be met with more things to control? Do you feel the need to hide certain behaviors from the people in your life who care about you? Have you turned to alcohol, sex, gambling, pornography and high-risk behaviors to try to prove to yourself that you are capable, powerful and worthy of respect? Have you been wondering what healthy masculinity really looks like in today’s world? If so, you are not alone, far from it actually. I have worked with 1000s of men over the last twelve years who have struggled with those same questions and behaviors. I have seen how fear can be a powerful influence in the lives of my clients who are so afraid to look weak, or ask for help. Too often my clients find themselves overwhelmed by their circumstances and running in a destructive pattern. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 12 years of experience working with men who have gained a new perspective. (720) 440-2437 www.mydenvertherapy.com John@mydenvertherapy.com

Volunteering and service is important to me, from Special Olympics to Reading for Peace, and have had the privilege to be a counselor for the Boulder EXPAND program’s Outdoor Adventure Camp. I received my master’s in counseling from the University of Colorado at Denver and have training in Non-Violent Communication, Relational Life Therapy and IFS.

ROBBIE WATTERSON, LPCC

Hi, I am Robbie, a holistic wilderness therapist here to guide you on your therapeutic journey. Each step you take towards becoming your best self is something to honor. Life can be extremely challenging but if we have assistance and meaningful practices along the way, the journey seems more inviting and more alive. Let's face it, we are constantly changing just like nature changes from season to season. If we become more aware of our changes and give them space for expression, I feel we transition in a way that feels fluid and organic. Individuals and couples who work with me are seeking a deeper, more meaningful connection with themselves and their partners. I use a blend of Somatic (body-based), Wilderness (nature-based), Internal Family Systems (parts work), and Person-Centered therapies. For couples, I use a blend of The Gottman Method, Terry Real’s Relational Life Therapy, and Attachment-based Counseling. I have found that successful relationships start within yourself and once you begin to find love and acceptance for all parts of yourself, it makes it easier and more enjoyable to be in a relationship with another human being. robbie@ritualsmentalhealth.com (720)805-4639

AARON BEKKELA, LPC-S, LAC

I've been married for over 20 years with 2 kids and worked everything from construction to casinos to being a police officer. My bachelor's degree is in business, masters in counseling. That coupled with being a licensed therapist and licensed addictions counselor for years now, helps me to understand life from multiple points of view. I've worked in emergency rooms, as an intensive care coordinator writing roughly 50 residential assessments, and as a clinical director at a residential facility working with adolescents and their families. My approach to therapy includes meeting clients where they are at and employ whatever therapeutic approach fits them however, I tend to go with CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) as it's one of the most empirically tested and proven approaches that works well for most. I'm also a licensed addictions counselor and have been trained in EMDR. I come from a position of the client being the expert in their life where they know where they've been, what they've learned and experienced, and what they are struggling with. I do so with NO judgement! We've all experienced people and situations in our lives where we weren't at our best or made the best decisions. We've all been exposed to the same where things were out of our control and we simply did the best we could. My goal is for them to leave with tools to achieve higher functioning.

CHRIS COLE, MA LPC

Now is the time. Taking action toward your growth and wellbeing can feel daunting, and beginning therapy might be one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. I want you to know how much I honor the courage it takes to pursue a more connected, authentic life for yourself. My name is Chris Cole. I am a mindfulness-based psychotherapist, which means that I am dedicated to bringing you into the moment-to-moment experience of your mind with openness, warmth, curiosity, and unconditional acceptance. My training is in clinical mental health counseling, with concentrations in transpersonal psychology, contemplative psychology, and humanistic psychology. Mindfulness-based psychotherapy produces the insight and self-compassion necessary to identify your needs and progress toward your goals. So often, unconscious dynamics and inherited patterns of behavior dominate our lives. These processes usually exist beneath or outside of our conscious awareness. My role is to help you encounter the truth of your life, while embodying enough kindness to change. I look forward to accompanying you on your healing journey. Phone: 720-491-1554

JONI A. ADAMS, M.A., LPC-S

As a therapist celebrating 27 years in the mental health field, I hold a deep appreciation and respect for psychotherapy. I support each of my clients with the ideal balance of nurturance and firmness that is often necessary to accomplish deep personal work. I am able to do my best work with clients who match my full commitment to the therapeutic process because that is where true change occurs and the biggest rewards are found. I possess a true passion for my work with clients, which is evident in my unwavering commitment to their success. I recognize how terrifying it can be to face deeply rooted issues, so I work hard to establish a safe therapeutic environment with attention to everything from the office experience to how fully present I am in each of my client's sessions. I place premium value on collaborative efforts between clients and therapists, meaning we join together to meet your goals. Real therapy and especially deep personal work is intense and requires vulnerability, trust, and hard work in order to create and maintain lifelong changes. I primarily approach my work from the therapy perspectives of EMDR, sandtray, and ego state work, which includes an emphasis on how unconscious psychological processes may be related to current patterns of relating, feeling, and behaving. I am an out-of-the box creative thinker who uses a variety of therapeutic techniques to facilitate the healing process, including deep inner child work or parts work, art therapy techniques, and role play. I additionally enjoy working with professional therapists who are interested in and committed to their own therapy work or case consultation. Outside of work, I love to read, walk my dogs, and find fun things to do with my family in the greater Houston area. My favorite vacation spots are usually centralized around hiking in a National Park and enjoying submersion with nature.

MARCIA JACKSON, M.A., LPC ASSOCIATE

Supervised by Joni A. Adams, M.A., LPC-S. ​I believe therapy can be one of the most rewarding and valuable relational experiences in an individual’s life. The intimate and nonjudgmental conversation provides the ideal space for the connection and understanding that we all yearn for as human beings. The therapeutic relationship also serves to identify behaviors and ways of thinking that might make this type of connection more difficult in the outside world. I view therapy as a partnership which requires dedication and commitment from both therapist and client. My orientation is primarily humanistic, and I work from an interpersonal frame of reference, though I draw interventions from a variety of theoretical backgrounds. We all confront conflict in life that often produces a great deal of anxiety. My therapeutic approach takes into consideration the uniqueness and complexity of each client. I am interested in building on strengths that individuals already possess, while also helping to identify areas for growth and change. Deciding to pursue therapy can be a life changing decision, and as such deserves the utmost respect and commitment from me. I will continually strive to learn and grow alongside my clients, as I believe that is a hallmark of fully engaged and successful therapy. I work with individuals (ages 18 and up), couples, and families with a variety of presenting issues such as anxiety, depression, self-sabotaging behaviors, relational issues, and parenting challenges. My areas of interest and continued study include couples therapy and social anxiety. I am trained in Internal Family System, which is a cutting-edge, trauma-informed approach to therapy. I have also completed training in the Gottman Therapy approach to working with couples. Current availability includes in-person and virtual therapy options. My rates are $145 per session, and I am not in network with any insurance providers. I look forward to hearing from you!
