Hello and welcome to my web page. My name is Liz Unruh and I am a transplant from upstate New York: Colorado has been my home since 1992. I earned a Bachelors degree in Psychology from the State University of New York at Potsdam in 1992 and a Masters degree in Counseling from Denver Seminary in 1997. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Colorado, a National Board Certified Counselor and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. My faith in Jesus is important to me and I incorporate this in with my work with clients while respecting each individual's personal faith beliefs. I aim to incorporate hope into the counseling process and I strive to create a healing space that combines kind consideration with challenge.
The majority of my work over the years has been with adults, teens and couples in the following:
- Anxiety (Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Separation Anxiety, Phobias, Panic Disorder)
- Depression (Persistent Depressive Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder)
- Trauma therapy (PTSD, Acute Stress Disorder, childhood and adult trauma)
- Marriage counseling and Pre-Marital counseling
- Religious disillusionment and spiritual direction.
I believe individuals are each unique and therefore not one modality of therapy is appropriate for everyone. I utilize elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Client Centered Therapy, Brief Solution Focused Therapy, Tapping, Brainspotting and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)* in my work with clients. I also have been trained in both Level 1 and Level 2 of the Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
A little more about me...
My husband and I have been been married for over 20 years and we have been blessed with two sons. When I am not in the office or attending a sporting event, I enjoy our Golden Retrievers, gardening, cooking, physical fitness and road biking.
