THERAPY SERVICES:

Do you or a loved one feel depressed and anxious for no apparent reason? Is it difficult to get out of bed in the mornings and get excited about things you used to love doing? Do you feel all alone and as though nobody understands your struggles? Or do you feel awkward in social situations and tend to overthink things and assume the worst? If any or all of these apply to you, you may be struggling with depression and anxiety.

As a Stanford trained psychologist, I treat children, adolescents and adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, and disordered eating habits. I will help you explore your inner world and create awareness by providing compassionate guidance. Through my ability to read between the lines, I can see you and help you better understand yourself. My approach to therapy is both insight-oriented and skill-based. As a researcher and clinician, I am able to apply the most up-to-date evidence-based treatments to help you find a way back to a fulfilling and satisfying life. We will work through subconscious barriers and challenges that may interfere with your joy in life, growth, and path to healing.

I also specialize in working with individuals and their family members who suffer from serious medical conditions. Let’s work together through the emotional struggles associated with the diagnosis of a physical illness. Emotional difficulties can appear at any stage in the treatment process and sometimes only surface once all treatments are completed. I will help you better cope with anxiety and worries associated with your medical condition and help you make sense of your condition productively to find your way back to a fulfilling life. I have extensive experience working with oncology patients and their family members. I also offer caregiver support. Furthermore, I help children and adolescents cope with the physical illness of a parent and I work with loss and grief following the passing of a parent, grandparent, sibling, child, friend or spouse.

LEGACY WORK (DIGNITY THERAPY):

Imagine for a moment you are nearing the end of your life. There is no way of knowing when this might be. You could be in the prime of life or in your twilight years. Nevertheless, try to imagine what would determine the quality of your life and your legacy. Would you want to leave a message to your children or grandchildren or perhaps you are a child and would like for your mother or grandfather to leave a narrative document about their life’s journey for you and your children. If any of this is true, Dignity Therapy might be right for you. Dignity therapy is a short 3 session therapy program which involves asking questions about your life’s history and work. We will put in words your ultimate legacy and what you want to pass on to your (grand)children. We will craft a memoir based on the meaning and purposes of your life. Your story will be made into a bound book which can be shared with loved ones. Dignity Therapy is designed for patients who are facing a life-threatening illness, seniors who would like to reflect over their lives and help them with challenges that may accompany the process of aging, and anybody else who enjoys giving thought to their life’s legacy, discuss values and lessons learned, and those who would like to leave a message for loved ones in a narrative document.

PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT SERVICES:

I also provide a variety of assessment services, including psychological/psychodiagnostic evaluations for legal proceedings, adoption evaluations, and neurocognitive assessments.

With 19 publications, I am an expert in psychometric methodology and theory. I conduct psychological evaluations for adults and adolescents to help inform treatment or for legal purposes, such as custody proceedings. I offer cognitive testing services before and after medical interventions, such as prior to bariatric surgery or post organ transplant or chemotherapy and I conduct specific learning disability assessments.

I pride myself in my ability to conduct thorough assessments of you as an individual, where I systematically examine the information gathered from an assessment and weave it into a comprehensive and complete picture of your competencies, struggles, and capabilities. Recommendations are based on all the assessment results and on discussions with peers, family, yourself and others who may be able to shed light on you as a complex, unique individual. This person-centered, thorough and caring approach to testing, coupled with my expertise in psychometric and measurement, helps me understand you in an objective and accurate manner with focus on your individual strengths. The results of the tests will help inform and develop a treatment plan to facilitate success in your life. Visit my website for more details: psychologycolorado.com

PRESCRIBER

You’re looking for answers. You’re hurting and exhausted. You’re doing the work but barely hanging on. You’ve considered medications but you don’t want to be a zombie, gain weight, have sexual side effects, or be hooked on medications for years. You just want to feel like you again. 

You want help for your child but you don’t want them to have side effects or get addicted to something. Psychiatrists are unapproachable and your teen won’t go to the appointments because they don’t feel like the prescriber gets who they are. You’re looking for help but the soonest appointment is months away.

You want someone who knows what they’re doing and follows the evidence but is also a great listener and really works to understand the problem. They’ll work with your therapist and consider novel approaches, not just pull out a prescription pad.

Years of Training, Experience, and Dedication to Mental Wellness

I am a board-certified child and family psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner, trained at the University of California, San Francisco and licensed in Colorado and California. I diagnose psychiatric disorders and prescribe psychiatric medications to individuals of all ages.

I began working in mental health in 2000 and have been practicing psychiatry since 2012. Before prescribing, I worked with adolescents in residential and wilderness programs, provided drug and alcohol counseling, and individual and group therapy to children and adults.

I love what I do and am honored to be part of the process with people who are looking for change. Although I am a prescriber, I do not meet with pharmaceutical drug representatives and I pursue evidence-based continuing medical education free from corporate sponsorship so that I stay current with what will help you, not what will make the pharmaceutical companies more money.

My Approach to Prescribing Psychiatric Medications

Individuals of all races, religions, genders, orientations, cultures, and abilities are welcome here. This is your body and your process. I am committed to you feeling heard, cared for and supporting you in achieving your mental health goals. I am not committed to prescribing you medications. If it’s likely that you can feel better without using psychiatric medications, then we can talk about how to make that happen and I’ll be here if you need me down the road.

During the assessment I will be working to learn about you, your history, what is bothering you, what you have already tried, and what you want to be different. We will discuss a wide variety of options to help you achieve your goals. If medications are recommended, we will create a wellness plan that integrates medications and support from non-pharmaceutical interventions such as exercise, sleep hygiene, spiritual practices, creative methods, social involvement, and psychotherapy with a therapist, psychologist, or licensed counselor. This complimentary approach to treatment serves to create a solid foundation for lasting change and efficient reduction in symptoms.

Charlie Wright, LSP

Charlie is a Colorado Department of Education credentialed school psychologist who has maintained both a private practice and employment in the public school system for more than twenty years.

He is a past president of the Colorado Society of School Psychologists, has co-authored two professional journal articles on the Content of Undergraduate Transpersonal Psychology Courses and Reasons for not Reporting Peak Experiences. In addition, he was employed by the Institute of Behavioral Genetics to assess cognition for a long term study that focused on learning disabilities.

As a psycho-educational diagnostician, Charlie’s goal is to effectively integrate intellectual abilities, academic skills, and personality characteristics, in developing an effective treatment plan to address the client’s area(s) of concern. In addition, executive functioning abilities, as well as attention/inattention skills, are also evaluated. The assessment process enables the client to gain a comprehensive understanding of how these factors impact their educational performance, employment expectations, interpersonal relationships and their intrapersonal self perceptions or self esteem.

Clients can schedule a free telephone consultation to review their individual concerns and help to determine if psychometric assessment is warranted. If so, an initial intake meeting with a structured interview will be scheduled to help determine what specific tests are indicated, depending on the specific questions that the client wants answered. As noted above Charlie is trained to assess intelligence, attentional impairments, achievement, and to provide personality/emotional profiles.

Educational Background: I received my Bachelors Degree from University of Colorado in Psychology in 1994. I completed my Masters Counseling Psychology University of Colorado at Denver in 1997 and became licensed in 2000. During the years of my experience I have completed additional trainings in: Life Coaching, DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), (EFT Tapping (Emotional Freedom Therapy), ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), ADHD workshops, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Therapy).

My Approach:

The counseling/coaching relationship provides a unique opportunity that allows you to focus on YOU… not on the outer world and all life’s chores, responsibilities, expectations and daily distractions. This is a safe place for introspection, analysis and evaluating personal progress. This sacred time is set aside for you to safely explore important areas of your life or current stressors. You can feel open to experience your emotions with gentleness, curiosity, and increasing self-awareness. As you more clearly identify your goals, values and hopes, you can set your intention on achieving your best self. This practice leads to living a more “value-driven life” rather than a life that is in response to daily stimuli and stressors. In this way you become more aligned with the truth of who we are.  Ultimately, it’s our relationship with ourselves that affects our relationships with others, and allows us to create a life that’s meaningful and fulfilling.

Present and past experiences have influenced your current emotions, thoughts and behaviors. As you begin to examine more mindfully the patterns of action (and inaction) you will begin to feel more empowered and confident to make shifts and gain a greater sense of control in your ability to move in a positive direction.

My therapeutic style is honest, direct, engaged, understanding, often challenging and highly collaborative. Genuine connection is of utmost importance to me. I will be an attentive listener while also looking for behavior patterns or thinking loops that may be holding you back. Often these “conditioned patterns” block growth.

Sometimes our barriers to happiness stem from feelings and deeply ingrained beliefs that are not necessarily true.  I like to help examine what “story” we may be telling ourselves or repeating over and over, with a new set of characters.

There is no single path towards expansion, change and healing. With that being said, I adjust my style and interventions to what works best for client’s individual needs.

THE BASIC BELIEF OF COACHING is that I believe you inherently know what’s best sometimes it has just been clouded over.  My role is to be a “thinking partner” and help you to find those answers within.  We all have an inner wisdom and the sense to know when we are living as our highest and best self. You’ll learn practices to relax and slow down and reconnect with yourself so you can begin to hear what your mind and head is telling you. This change may be uncomfortable at times. Often it happens in small steps or in one area of focus at a time, yet the process is surprisingly simple. I look forward to connecting with you as we work together to facilitate your unique journey.

Leah is a certified facilitator of True Colors Personality Assessment. This is an easy to understand and easy to apply inventory based on Myers Briggs. This process will help an individual gain a sense of his/her primary personality type and how he/she may approach communication, time management, projects, problem solving and conflict.  This insightful process will increase team productivity and satisfaction. Leah will assess each individual with an easy on-line link, then produce individual and team results. These valuable reports are personalized for each team member and bring greater awareness to the values and mindsets that drive behaviors.  Leah will also facilitate an interactive group seminar which interprets the information while also facilitating group exercises that lead to greater insights and team cohesiveness. In addition: facilitated team conversations and 1:1 coaching is also available post seminar.
