Aaron I Anderson, M.S., LMFT

Location: Colorado | Utah

“I wholeheartedly believe that couples can not only overcome challenges they’re facing, but that through counseling they can come out stronger as a couple with a healthier, more vibrant relationship than they ever had.”

About Aaron Anderson
I have extensive training and experience in marriage counseling. I received a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and did doctoral studies in Family Science. I’ve also specialized in working with couples for over 14 years. As a result of this rigorous training and experience you can rest assured that you are getting the specialized care for your marriage that you need.

I am also thoroughly involved with many aspects of marriage counseling professionally and in the community. I’m an Affiliate Faculty at Regis University in the Department of Counseling and Family Therapy where I teach various courses related to marriage and family therapy. In addition to my Affiliate Faculty position, I’m also a Clinical Fellow of The American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and a past Board Member for the Colorado Association of Marriage and Family Therapists. Being a marriage counselor isn’t just what I do, it’s who I am. You can rest assured that you are getting an expert who can help you give your relationship the best chance to succeed.

What is therapy like?

My therapy is pretty down-to-earth. I recognize that change doesn’t happen inside your comfort zone. In fact, staying in your comfort zone is probably what caused you and your partner to get into the challenges you’re having. As humans, we evolve and grow. Your relationship needs to evolve and adapt along with you. In therapy with me, I will help you and your spouse explore the unspoken rules that keep you both in your comfort zones and stuck in the same unhelpful patterns. You will get a better understanding of yourself and your partner by exploring the deeper, more core beliefs that you both have that are affecting your relationship. We will work on finding the ones causing you both to stumble and will help you co-create new ones with your partner that feels fulfilling and rewarding again. I will help you both to create new goals together as a couple that are exciting, vibrant, and passionate.

Because we work to go past your comfort zone, and explore parts of you and your relationship you haven’t thought about before, my therapy can be a little bit challenging. I’m very nonjudgmental and supportive but doing that level of self-exploration can be tough. I have a strict 48-hour cancellation policy for this reason. It’s when you don’t want to come to counseling that is usually when the best work gets done. 

If you’re seeing me for infidelity, we get right to work rebuilding trust first and foremost. We do this by getting to work controlling the damage and chaos that comes when an affair has been discovered. Then we begin to unpack why the affair happened and how to keep it from happening again. There was a reason the affair happened. You can’t look back to the old relationship because there were pieces of it that made your relationship vulnerable. So, I help you build a new relationship and leave those vulnerabilities behind. It’s not easy, but it’s worth it.

What do you do when you’re not doing therapy?

I’m an avid father of three children. I love exploring the many beautiful things the world has to offer and sharing them with my little family. This usually includes going to new restaurants with unique menus, going to small town festivals, and exploring new places. And when I want to take time for myself, you’ll find me with a wrench working on my motorcycle or wasting my brain watching a scary movie.

My passion for helping others has been present for as long as I can remember. I have 27 years of experience in various volunteer or professional capacities working with people in mentoring, coaching, or teaching roles. I hold a B.A. in Fine Art and Education from the University of Northern Colorado and am pursuing and M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy at Colorado Chrisian University. I have a great passion for art and teaching, but wat is leading me to move into the mental health field stems from my natural tendency and desire to help others reach their full potential. Through my therapeutic journey and processing, I decided I needed to get more education and training to walk with others to the best of my ability.

What is therapy like?

I believe you have arrived at this place and time for a reason. Whatever is going on, it’s hard. You have already taken the first step, which is worth celebrating, in admitting that you need help in this part of your journey and seeking he help you need! The courage that brought you here is your strength and a foundation for the change and growth to come. I will be honored to walk with you, your family, or you and your partner to set a positive course, find solutions, and build tools that will help you move toward the future with a sense of hope, purpose, and personal renewal for your life. I am for you and with you. Wherever you are, we are in this together.

I take a more humanistic approach to therapy in a client-centered integrative theoretical model. You are the expert on your own life! You already have everything you need within yourself to get to where you want to be. You will be an active participant, doing most of the talking. My goal is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space for you, to serve as a guide on your journey of discovery as individuals, couples and families, and to support you in finding the answers you have been seeking.    

For Individuals: A goal is to support an increase in self-awareness and improve your ability to use self-direction to make desired changes into realities through increasing clarity, improving self-esteem, and self-reliance. 

For Families and Couples: As couples and families, you are also individuals. An additional goal in working with partners and families will be to support you toward a greater understanding of your individual and family strengths and needs and focus on supporting you to increase your ability to have open and honest discussions and learn to communicate more effectively, leading to fewer misunderstandings and better outcomes.  

When Ashley is not working:

When I’m not working, I can be found in my studio creating, out in nature taking photographs, reading in my hammock, or taking time for self-reflection. I make time to invest in my relationships with family and friends by doing activities out in nature, having coffee dates, or enjoying a meal together! I love to test new recipes on those closest to me to get an honest opinion.

About Kara

I am currently attending Colorado Christian University to obtain my master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. I also hold a Doctorate of Chiropractic and a Bachelors in Health and Wellness from parker University in Texas. I worked with a diverse range of clients and issues during my 12 years as a chiropractor. I enjoyed treating clients experiencing emotional distress during that time by utilizing Neuro-Emotional Technique. Over my years of working with individuals and families, I found that I am drawn to the emotional and family dynamic components that play a major part in the physical health of clients. this interest led to my shift in career focus. I am passionate about helping people experience self-discovery, overcome traumas, and create new coping and communication skills. My intention is to obtain additional trauma training and certifications as I continue my education. 

What is therapy like?

My intention as a counselor is to provide an environment in which you can feel safe, heard, and accepted. I take a collaborative approach to sort out what your struggles are so that we may create goals, discover strengths, and work towards new strategies together. I align with a systemic framework with a Gestalt flavor in order to meet you with your world and better individualize your care. I believe that listening and asking probing questions can help people discover what is already inside of them. By shifting our lens, we can also create positive effect within the systems we live and work in. My goal as a counselor is to walk along side of you in your journey to healing and self-discovery.

I’ve been married for almost 11 years and for the last two have primarily been a stay-at-home-mom to our daughter and dog. When time allows, I enjoy baking and staying active by playing softball.

Payton Holt

Location: Utah

About Payton:

I received a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Regis University located in Denver, Colorado. I am currently licensed as an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Utah and as a Marriage and Family Therapist Candidate in the state of Colorado. I have experience working with couples, families, and teens. I specialize in working with couples, parents with difficult children, and those experiencing anxiety at any level. 

What is therapy like:

My typical stance as a therapist is to be both direct and directive. I am direct in the sense that I’m not going to beat around the bush. I will tell you hard things to hear when needed. Being directive looks like me bringing skills and tools to the table for you to explore and learn. I’m not the kind of therapist that you have for the next 10 years. I want to help you learn what you need to in order for you to get back to a place of stability and happiness quickly. Although my approach is focused on results, I understand the importance of a strong therapeutic alliance. It’s not all business all the time. I’m light-hearted at times and find humor to be a great addition in the therapy room. I seek to also connect through empathy. Life is tough, and I’ll never minimize the struggles we each face. 

Lastly, the approach I use with couples is rooted in Relational Life Therapy. This modality is fantastic for couples struggling with communication problems, major differences in personality, frequent arguing or conflict, and those suffering from what I call “Roommate Syndrome” (essentially living parallel lives in the same home, with little emotional connection). 

When working with parents and individuals, my approach is rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Both approaches take into account the multidirectional impact of our thoughts, behaviors, and emotions. Using those approaches, I help you find practical ways to make real and lasting changes. 

What do I do for fun:

When I’m not in the office I enjoy being in the mountains exploring, fishing, or meditating. I’m an avid sports fan and enjoy both playing and watching a range of sports. Having played football at a collegiate level, that is my favorite to play and watch. I have a great liking for chocolate and movie theatre popcorn. Last, but certainly not least, I love being with my wife and two kids.
