Bio: Specializing in attachment psychology and interpersonal effectiveness, Andre has been serving adults, couples and families overcome hardship for the past 5 years. He runs his private practice out of Boulder and continues to serve the community through an empathetic, client centered approach using various therapeutic interventions.

Practice Approach: Do you have a lingering sense of emptiness? A feeling that something is missing, but not sure where to start? Are you stuck in the past, anxious about the future, and unable to enjoy the present? Like you, I have been there. I know how hopeless it can feel. Understanding struggles with relationships and connection is the main focus of my work, and I help individuals like you start to feel more secure in relation with others and yourself. We all have an individual blueprint of attachment, where we might feel a sense of constant anxiety within our relationships, or maybe feel a need to withdraw or detach.

Often times, our blueprint can include outdated coping mechanisms that worked for us at one point, but now feel destructive. As your therapist, I will walk alongside you in your journey of healing & empower you to repair relationships & establish healthier ones. Through addressing your core fears, we will shatter the illusions that prevent you from peace.

I understand that it can be difficult finding a therapist you feel would be a match. If you feel like our work together might be meaningful, please reach out. We can set up a free initial consultation to better understand what brings you to me today.

Let’s work through these maladaptive patterns. Together we will learn to create and maintain a healthier relationship to self and others.

How I Work: Have you ever had the experience of talking with a helping professional but feeling like nothing is really happening? Have you found yourself in the same painful and infuriating loops over and over again in your relationships and work, patterns that threaten to erode self-confidence and the feeling that life can improve?

What advances in neuroscience demonstrate empirically is that we need immediate and visceral experiences of connection in the here-and-now to alter our brains and nervous system. This understanding is at the cornerstone of my stylistic approach. Working with me, you will find a therapist with over ten years of experience dedicated to listening deeply & non-judgmentally as well as challenging unconscious patterns that limit your growth and access to new experiences. You will leave sessions feeling more emotionally validated, psychologically organized, and ready to take actionable steps to move your life forward.

Specialty Treatment Areas:  Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to work with a highly diverse group of people across a number of stages of life. These challenges have included:

  • Perfectionism
  • Eating Disorders
  • Substance Abuse & Addiction
  • Trauma/ Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Anxiety/ Panic Attacks
  • Depression
  • Sex & Love Addiction/Codependency
  • ADD/ ADHD
  • Self-Harm
  • Suicidal Ideation
  • Rage Attacks
  • Impulse Control
  • Adolescent Challenges
  • Transitioning Young Adult Challenges
  • Executive Functioning Issues
  • Parenting Conflicts
  • Emotional Regulation Issues
  • Family Discord

Individuals Psychotherapy: One-to-one counseling can serve as an incredibly powerful launching pad for personal growth and life change. With an extensive training background that includes both behavioral interventions and psychodynamic approaches, I will partner with you to determine the individualized approach that will most deeply and comprehensively address the changes you are wanting for your life and well-being.

Family Work: How frequently do we find that the people we are closet to are often the hardest to reach or get us at our worst? Taking a deeply systemic and attachment oriented approach, I work with the family as a whole to understand the underlying blocks to emotional communication as well as to empower each member to express and ask for what they need. For over ten years, I have made a focal point of my practice helping families find ways to say the unsayable and work through issues surrounding trauma, substance abuse, divorce, and secrecy.

Groups: Do you ever find yourself gravitating to the same roles in your relationships with friends and colleagues? Do you long for genuine feedback about how others experience you and to identify ways you can be more effective in relationship? Group psychotherapy is singular in its ability to powerfully address and repair deep, unconscious patterns of relating. Using a here-and-now approach, I work as a group leader to create a culture where thoughts and feelings can be put into words and shared in a constructive way leading to interpersonal growth. It is understandably that many people find group psychotherapy intimidating. I will be happy to meet with you to determine if this could be a helpful next step in your personal evolution. Once within a group, you will be invited to take risks, experiment with new ways of being and communicating, and to anchor these changes in the lived experience of relating in the here-and-now.

Couples (Separation/Divorce)

 

Do you feel misunderstood in your relationship, or lonely in your marriage?  Are there too many arguments? or is there too much silence? Might you sometimes think you infuse negative patterns from your past into your current relationship and don’t know how to stop?

When we experience intense and relentless feelings of hurt, anger, or resentment, we are physiologically affected. Stress response kicks in and exacerbates anxiety, affecting our heart rate, our breathing. We can’t sleep, we ruminate, we gear up for battle — and can’t imagine how to find relief. 

However, relief is possible. To get relief from these kinds of impinging toxic feelings, they must be “off-loaded.”  And healthy off-loading occurs when we talk honestly, expel, express, and no longer “hold everything together,” no longer “contain it all.”  This requires a reliable frame/relationship with a trained and trusted clinician who can meet you where you are.

When you feel seen, heard, and understood — you will have ground for feeling better in yourself and for making healthy choices in every relationship, every interaction.

And of course, in each session, as needed, you will get practical help with how to establish boundaries, how to communicate, and how to position yourself to your advantage.

I offer a free 20-minute phone consultation so you can ask me questions and find out if we are a good fit. Call me: 828.318.6283.

A helpful free resource for dealing with separation/divorce issues is Second Saturday. An online venue for the Boulder area, it meets on the second Saturday of every month. It provides legal, financial, and therapeutic expertise and the presenters are available for any questions you might have.

Individual Adults

 

I specialize in working with people who are good at solving complex, often technical problems — people who enjoy their minds and their accomplishments.  If you are this kind of person, you might sometimes suffer from loneliness, anxiety, perfectionism, OCD, depression, and/or relationship problems.

 

Not unlike complex technical problems — when painful, sometimes toxic emotional problems are sufficiently analyzed and understood, they can be sufficiently alleviated/resolved. 

 

As we talk together and assess what’s been going on — new ways to proceed, new ways to orient will begin to surface, emotionally and practically.

 

You’re welcome to contact me for a free 20-minute consult to ask questions and see if we might be a good fit.  Text or call me at 828.318.6283

 

Young Adults (Students/Professionals)

 

These days young adults face difficult decisions and life situations.  There is advantage in finding a reliable place to talk things through — so you can position yourself with clarity as you navigate your future.

 

Whatever emotional difficulties (like anxiety, social anxiety, loneliness, gender issues, isolation, depression) you may be experiencing, there is help to be had.

 

I do my best to provide an easy space to talk about what’s going on for you. As we carefully, thoughtfully, explore/examine your situation, you’ll not be alone with it.  Your mind will not be relegated to being a “closed system” where you remain alone with no way out.

My job is to help you put your thoughts and feelings into words, i.e., “on the table,” so you can see your situation more clearly.  As your understanding increases, you will make steady progress determining/implementing what you want and don’t want “on the table” — of your life.

Psychedelic Integration:

Psychedelic therapies (MDMA, Ketamine, LSD, Psilocybin, Ayahuasca) can help provide relief or help expand/explore consciousness. After a dosing experience, it is often helpful to explore, talk through, and uncover unconscious insights that are foundational for you.

Psychoanalytic-type work is optimally equipped to process your experience.

General Work Orientation 

I work short-term and long-term, depending on what’s needed and wanted — whether you need CBT-type problem-solving or more in-depth exploration to resolve long-standing issues/identifications.

We work at your pace via phone, on-screen, or in person. I am an out-of-network provider so our work together is completely private. My home office is located close to CU campus. I offer a 20-minute free consultation to see if we are a good fit.  You’re welcome to contact me:  828.318.6283.

 

About Me

 Following graduate work at the University of Houston and Rice University, I pursued in-depth modern analytic training (coursework/analysis) through the Colorado Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies and the Philadelphia School of Psychoanalysis.

I have been doing Separation/Divorce Work, Individual Psychotherapy/Analysis, and Supervision/Mentoring for over 25 years. Unless a short-term counseling/cognitive stance is called for, I take a comprehensive approach with the aim of exploring, dismantling, and resolving repetitive patterns that interfere with a persons life desires and goals.

I very much enjoy my work and the people who come to see me.

How I Work:

Focusing on the individual and their unique capability toward healing is the guiding approach I take in therapy. I work with great curiosity to explore the distractions and negative cycles that may be keeping you stuck. The struggle for clarity is a difficult one to navigate in isolation; together we can look at patterns and behaviors that no longer service you and gently work toward a new, more expansive pathway. The therapeutic process is one of finding balance between the emotional and rational, the mind, body and spirit then bringing that forward into our lives. Bringing meaning and integration to mind, body and spirit is the philosophy I hold in the practice of therapy.

 

Specialty Treatment Areas:

  •     Substance Abuse & Addiction
  •     Trauma Work
  •     Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  •     Anxiety/ Panic Attacks

Individual Holistic Psychotherapy:

It seems to me that in order for real change and healing to occur, the mind, body, spirit and brain must all be incorporated into the therapeutic process. Each of our stories is unique and there is no “one-size-fits-all” treatment.

            Together we can work on:

  • Identifying triggers that put you into a survival state (fight/flight/freeze/collapse), which can contribute to self-defeating patterns.
  • Exploring your relationship to your family of origin.
  • Learning your attachment style and revitalizing your relationships.
  • Developing compassion for all parts of yourself.
  • Creating resources to help calm your nervous system.
  • Loosening the grip of chronic self-judgment.
  • Healing addictive and reactive patterns.
  • Building mindfulness techniques to help you feel more grounded and present.

Family Work:

Families can benefit from therapy when they experience any stressful  event that may strain family relationships, such as financial hardship, divorce,  or the death of a loved one. In addition, it can be effective in  treating mental health concerns that impact the family as a whole, such  as depression, substance abuse, chronic illness, and food issues, or everyday concerns, like communication problems, interpersonal conflict, or behavioral problems in children and adolescents.

I work with families in an Emotionally-Focused framework, based on the work of Sue Johnson. This approach works from an attachment-based lens to help understand problematic cycles that trigger and maintain issues in the family. It then works to build interactions that that establish safer connection and a calmer, more regulated atmosphere among individuals and in the family system.

            Together we can work on:

  • Building skills for more emotional regulation and a better sense of feeling grounded.
  • Dismantling reactive negative cycles by establishing a more secure base of attachment.
  • Studying the blocks that arise in connection and support.
  • Creating an alliance through effective communication, emotional safety and bonding.

 

Trauma Informed Therapy/ Sensorimotor Psychotherapy:

Dr. Gabor Mate defines trauma as, “a psychic wound that hardens you psychologically that then interferes with your ability to grow and develop. It pains you and then you act out of the pain. It induces fear and then you are acting out of that fear. Trauma is not what happens to you, it’s what happens inside of you as a result of what happened to you.”

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP) is a complete therapeutic modality  for trauma and attachment issues. SP welcomes the body as an integral  source of information which can guide resourcing and the accessing and  processing of challenging, traumatic, and developmental experience. SP  is a holistic approach that includes somatic, emotional, and cognitive  processing and integration.

SP enables clients to discover and change habitual physical and  psychological patterns that impede optimal functioning and well-being.  SP is helpful in working with dysregulated activation and other effects  of trauma, as well as the limiting belief systems of developmental  issues.

SP helps clients cultivate their strengths, while providing enough  challenge to stimulate growth, long lasting change, and well-being.

            Together we can work on:

  • Validating your past hurts and traumas
  • Working though internalized feelings of shame and confusion
  • Identifying and understanding the everyday triggers that put you into a state of fight/flight/freeze/collapse.
  • Healing addictive and reactive patterns
  • Understanding how to process and release traumatic memories and emotions held in the body
  • Creating resources to calm the nervous system and help deal with trauma-related symptoms
  • Alleviating the suffering from emotions like fear, shame and anger

About Me:

Since graduating from Pacifica Graduate Institute in 2015, I have been cultivating my therapeutic practices in and out of agencies. I have worked in a transitional program for young adults, AIM House, going on 6 years. The program is structured to help guide young people on garnering enough ego strength to forge a path of independence, while also staying connected and building community. I also worked with their families in assisting with the individuation process through parent coaching and extensive family systems work through an attachment-focused lens. I have been in private practice for going on 7 years. My practice encompasses work with individuals, couples and families and has included a variety of age ranges. In meeting with such an array of unique individuals and tailoring to what they need along the way, I have deepened greatly into various aspects of psychology.

Central to my psychotherapy practice is my passion for serving children, teens, families, and women. While my services include traditional methods such as Cognitive Behavioral techniques and psychoanalysis, I believe the most effective modality for change is often through interacting with animals and nature.

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy: Horses offer unconditional support in working through relationship patterns and emotional difficulties. You, your child, or your family, will be guided to improve coping mechanisms, develop healthy attachments, and to live an empowered life.

Animal assisted therapy: Working with either my animals or your own family pets has proven to be instrumental in helping those who suffer from depression or anxiety or who have experienced a loss due to divorce, illness, or trauma.

Teen therapy and Mentoring: Throughout my 15 year career working with teens, I have received training in treating sexual trauma, adoption and attachment, as well as effectively serving persons on the Autism spectrum. I discovered that the best way to create permanent change for your child is with out-of-the-box, or more specifically, out-of-the-office methods. Because adolescents often have difficulty in a traditional office setting, they feel more open to therapy when in their community environment. I am available to pick your child up from school, to meet in a park, or in your home. Some examples of mentoring activities are hiking, rock climbing, horseback riding, or simply going for coffee. Whether I am helping them job hunt or accompanying them to a meeting with their school counselor, I will be working intensively to help your teen resolve their difficulties. Finally, I believe that parent education and involvement are integral components for an effective treatment plan.

For more information about how I can help you, your child, or your adolescent, please visit my website www.jennykey.com or feel free to email or contact me directly.
