“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 10 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. Through teaching with Regis University, I’m able to keep up with the latest research and methods in couples therapy and thoroughly enjoy teaching upcoming graduates how to be great couples counselors. 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. We get right to the point to help you get the results you want to get. Most couples go round and round in arguments and can’t figure out why they keep doing it – especially when they know it only gets them the same results. I help you and your spouse explore the unspoken rules that keep you both in the same unhelpful pattern. 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.

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.

Online counseling with Aaron

During the Covid-19 crisis, I am still seeing clients in-person as needed and I am also seeing clients through confidential and secure online counseling to help with social distancing. With all the shutdowns because of Covid-19 that doesn’t mean that your mental health needs have stopped. Give our clinic a call to schedule an online appointment. You can still get yourself and your relationship back to a better place.

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 sites. And when I want to take time for myself, you’ll find me with a wrench under the hood of my hotrod or wasting my brain watching a scary movie.

Jared Anderson

Location: Colorado

About Jared:

Jared is a lifelong learner on a mission to inspire transformation. His passion for mental health led him to pursue a master’s degree in Consciousness and Transformative studies in his early 30’s. He is fascinated by the exploration through meditation, breathwork, and yoga. Since 2016, he has been serving as a life coach. Continuing his journey in the mental health field, he is now enrolled as an intern at Capella University, working towards becoming a Marriage and Family Therapist. Jared is eager to combine the skills he has learned as a coach with the knowledge he is gaining as a therapist to better serve his clients.  

Who does Jared work with?

Men: As a man in today’s society, Jared understands the challenges and damaging messages that often arise. He has a passion for working with men, empowering them to become the best versions of themselves and navigate the difficulties they face. He believes that by supporting one another, men can break down negative societal norms and create a more positive and fulfilling life for all men. And he believes this work serves and supports women deeply. 

Couples: As a therapist, he is passionate about helping couples unearth root causes of their problems; leading to strengthened connections, love, trust, and overall satisfaction in their relationship. His objective is to support couples on a journey of self-exploration and growth, towards a harmonious and fulfilling relationship.   

Faith Transitions/Crisis: As someone who was raised in a devoutly religious household, he experienced a major faith crisis at the age of 19. This event led him away from church and left him feeling angry and hurt. However, after a long healing journey, he now has a deeper understanding of the role that religion and spirituality can play in our lives. He’s come to believe that religion can serve as a source of love, connection to self and a higher power, and virtuous living. However, he also recognizes that it can also cause deep pain and trauma. His personal journey, which has taken him from being an orthodox religious person to an atheist, and finally to someone with a rich spiritual life, has given him a unique perspective on the complexities of religion and spirituality. 

When Jared is not working:

When he is not in therapist mode, you can find him in the great outdoors, indulging his love for the mountains. Long hikes and snowboarding trips are his idea of a good time, along with cycling and reading. He also enjoys spending time with his girlfriend relaxing and doing a variety of activities.

About Carolina

My journey into the world of therapy was driven by a deep passion for healing and reconnecting relationships. I understand that maintaining a healthy and fulfilling partnership can be challenging, and my mission is to guide couples toward rediscovering the love, intimacy, and connection that first brought them together. 

What is therapy like?

In my couples therapy practice, I create a safe and non-judgmental space for couples to explore their issues and develop healthier ways of relating to each other. My passion is to guide couples through issues such as communication breakdowns, infidelity, trust issues and life transitions. My approach is tailored to the unique needs and goals of each couple, emphasizing open communication, empathy and emotional connection. 

My therapeutic style is characterized by my empathy, warmth and genuine care for my clients. I believe that every individual and couple have the capacity for growth and positive change. My approach is non-judgmental and client-centered, ensuring that you feel heard and respected throughout your therapeutic journey.  

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

I find immense pleasure in engaging in activities that contribute to a balanced and fulfilling life. I wholeheartedly embrace practices such as breathwork, meditation, and outdoor adventures. These pursuits allow me to reconnect with myself and maintain a sense of harmony. When traveling, I immerse myself in diverse cultures and experiences; whether it’s exploring new cultures or participating in rejuvenating retreats across the globe. I view these journeys as a chance to reset, learn, and connect with fellow professionals who share my passion for personal growth.

Ryan Hicks, M.S., LPC, LMFT

Location: Colorado

I received my master’s degree in Marriage & Family Therapy and Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Harding University. I have worked in a variety of community mental health settings including: in-home family preservation, outpatient community mental health, and crisis evaluation. I have served as an Affiliate faculty at Regis University, Visiting Instructor at Naropa University, and as a Clinical Supervisor at Denver Family Institute as well as the University of Colorado-Denver. The focus of my work now is in providing relationship therapy for non-monogamous/polyamorous relationships, Ketamine-Assisted therapy for individuals and couples, ad clinical supervision for psychotherapist licensure candidates. 

What can you expect from therapy with Ryan Hicks?

My aim in therapy is to help deepen your emotions, engage with your thoughts, and provide your unmet needs for yourself. We spend a lot of time slowing down and tuning into our needs and emotions so that the changes that you make will be more meaningful. My approach to therapy is integrative, using Emotion-Focused Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, and Mindfulness-based interventions. I believe that connection with ourselves and others is how we get better when we are struggling. Whether you see me for Ketamine-Assisted Therapy or CNM/Poly Relationship Therapy, I want to help you feel more connected and make sense of your emotions so that you can live in a way that feels right for you.  

What do you do outside of therapy?

I live a pretty active life when I’m not at work. I love hiking, rock climbing, skateboarding, and paddle boarding. And f I’m not doing one of those things you can probably find me drinking too much coffee, playing music, reading, spending time with my Partner, or playing with the doggo. 

Ryan specializes in:

Ketamine-Assisted Therapy for Individuals – 

Ketamine has been increasingly used in the field of mental health over the past few years in working with treatment-resistant depression and trauma among other things. Ketamine-assisted therapy can help us move past the stuck places that we come across in our lives. 

For individuals, the process generally involves preparation sessions, medicine sessions, and integration after the experience. The psychedelic experience that this brings up can allow us to focus on and think about our problems in new ways. We then spend time processing your experience in what we call “integration sessions”. These look a lot like “regular” therapy with our focus being on helping you take meaning from your experience and make whatever shifts you are needing in the rest of your life. Ketamine-assisted therapy can be very helpful for individuals who keep running into walls in their couples therapy due to trauma, depression, or anxiety. 

Ketamine-Assisted Therapy for Couples – 

Mental health professionals have very recently begun using Ketamine-Assisted Therapy in working with couples. When this is done, people take a low dose that does not bring on a psychedelic experience but allows for us to move past defensiveness and connect in vulnerable ways. Prior to being trained in Ketamine-Assisted Therapy, couples therapy was my sole focus in practice. This has set me up to have a unique set of specialties that I want to use to help you restore your relationship and reconnect with your partner. 

Polyamory/CNM Relationship Therapy – 

It can be really difficult to find a therapist to help navigate the world of polyamory/nonmonogamy. It is important to find a therapist who can help you not only connect emotionally, but communicate honestly and openly about your desires and needs within your relationships. I want to help you whether you are exploring polyamory/nonmonogamy for the first time, or whether you have been poly for years and just need a therapist who gets you in that way.

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.

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.
