We are sincerely honored to be allowed to assist you in your commitment to yourself and out of that to those you love and the world. Therapy can have profound impacts not only on you but everyone you love.

Here's why our practice stands out as an elite organism for change:

1. Multifaceted Specializations:

North Boulder Counseling truly has a comprehensive array of specialties. Our expert therapists are equipped to address an array of concerns, from anxiety and depression to couples counseling, family challenges, trauma recovery, child and adolescent therapy, young adult support, group therapy, clinical supervision for therapists, and healing from eating disorders. All of our therapists have varied mindfulness trainings as pragmatic mindfulness is a core tenant of our therapy brand. This means we can appreciate and teach mindfulness skills in a down to earth way that really gets at the what of their value in helping us understand ourselves and how to best meet our own needs.

2. We Pair You With Your Best and THE Best Therapists:

We have been known to wait months for the perfect team member in a given specialty because we would rather not offer a specialty than to do it poorly. The owner Gen Morley personally vets every therapist through multiple rounds including clinical skills, personality, and effectiveness. Then our Intake Specialist pairs you personally with the therapist who best fits your needs.

3. Evidence-Based Approaches:

Our therapists are practitioners of evidence-based therapeutic methods that have demonstrated their efficacy. Ranging from cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), EMDR, Interventions for Disordered Eating, to mindfulness-based interventions, Addictions treatment including Screen and Porn addiction and many others, we tailor our approach to your unique circumstances and needs.

Recognizing that each individual’s journey is uniquely their own, we collaborate closely with you to craft a personalized treatment plan that resonates with your aspirations, preferences, and inherent strengths. All of our therapists are trained in multiple treatment modalities, so they are able to offer truly custom therapy options.

5. Tangible Strategies:

North Boulder Counseling revolves around providing you with practical strategies as part of your therapy that can be seamlessly integrated into your daily life. We believe that substantial transformation arises from the implementation of tangible tools. While effective therapy can never only be strategy, we believe that it is best practice to offer the client some simple but powerful skills to increase their skills outside of the session, increase their ability to make choices in their life and to tolerate better what they do not have a choice around.

6. Positive Transformation:

Central to our ethos is the aspiration to catalyze positive transformations. Our therapists are dedicated to aiding you in surmounting challenges, cultivating resilience, and uncovering latent potential.

"THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY FORWARD"

– Gen Morley MA LPC

Things We Can Help With:

Every individual’s path to seeking therapy is distinct, rooted in their unique circumstances and aspirations. Here are some prevalent motives for individuals, couples, and families to initiate their therapeutic journey:
  1. Managing Anxiety and Stress: Chances are if you have a cell phone, then you have stress. The weight of anxiety and stress (yes they are two different things) can become overwhelming. Therapy with us provides you with the resources to navigate these emotions and rediscover serenity amidst the inevitable chaos.

  2.  Overcoming Depression: Depression can cast a shadow on even the simplest pleasures. Through our quality therapy, you can unravel the roots of your depression and learn strategies to regain hope and vitality. We understand the reality of depression and can offer realistic ways forward.

  3. Enhancing Relationships: Healthy relationships are essential to a healthy life. Navigating the intricacies of relationships can be complex. It requires an honest assessment of ourselves and our own needs and fears. North Boulder Counseling offers a platform to explore these aspects of yourself and then to refine communication, resolve conflicts, and cultivate deeper connections. Healthy relationships support our own resilience.
  1. Healing from Trauma: Trauma is trending, but even before screens and hashtags humans have always had trauma. The helpful thing about trauma trending is that it is being demystified. Trauma is inherent to the human experience. That also means we are made to be able to integrate it. The reality of that can certainly be daunting however, our trauma trained therapists know how to titrate trauma healing to make it do-able and sustainable. Our therapists who specialize in trauma-informed care offer a safe haven for healing and integration. You can heal from trauma and we can help.

     

  2. Cultivating Healthy Eating Habits: If your relationship with food and body image is strained, therapy with one of our specialists can guide you toward fostering a more harmonious connection.

     

  3. Guiding Young Minds: We often want to think that because kids and young adults have less responsibility they have an easier life. It doesn’t work like that. How hard something feels is relative to our experience with it. It makes sense that being a kid or young adult is just as painful and sometimes more so, than being an adult. The transitions inherent to growing up can be challenging. Our therapists specializing in child, adolescent, and young adult therapy are adept at providing guidance during these transformative phases. We help kids and parents find their best way forward toward a hopeful future.

Positive Outcomes of Our Therapy:

We see people change everyday. It is possible. The tapestry of positive outcomes woven by therapy is as diverse as the individuals who embark on this journey. With the adept guidance of our therapists, you can experience a multitude of positive shifts, including:
  1. Enhanced Mental Well-Being: Feel better. Therapy with us has helped countless people experience less pain and more joy or ease. Therapy at North Boulder Counseling equips you with tools to manage the tumult of anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges, and allows you to foster emotional well-being that’s authentic to you.

  2. Strengthened Relationships: Through your own commitment to change and some powerful therapists’ insights from our therapists, you can enhance your capacity to communicate, empathize, and build stronger bonds with the significant people in your life. Strong relational connections are the number one indicator of longevity and happiness and we can only have good relationships with others when we are clear on our deepest needs and how to get them met. When we get ourselves taken care of we are freed up to be better partners, lovers, parents, friends, and family. 

  3. Proficient Coping Mechanisms & Resilience: Our therapists empower you with healthy mechanisms to confront stressors and adversities, allowing you to regain a sense of control. No one can take away the reality of hard work, uncertainty and hard work in life, but at North Boulder Counseling we can give you tools to navigate those realities more effectively so you don’t have to blindly react.
  4. Heightened Self-Awareness: We are constantly trying to meet our own needs. From the food you chose at breakfast to the email you just sent, you are always being driven by underlying needs. If you don’t know what they are it is very hard to get them met effectively and those needs are often cooping your life. You could be having a more fulfilling day to day experience if you knew better what you were trying to do for yourself. Therapy with us is a voyage of self-discovery, facilitating a deeper understanding of your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Your therapist can help you get to the heart of your own needs and move on to connecting with others.
