KATI SAUL, LCSW, MSW

Founder and Psychotherapist

My Mission:

Ready to find the root of your anxiety, trauma, sadness, negative self-talk or depression? I believe that healing and wholeness is possible.  Whether you are a mom who has lost a pregnancy or child, someone who experienced trauma as a child, or feeling lost and wanting to find your purpose; I am passionate about supporting you in recognizing what the MORE looks like beyond the pain or grief you are in currently. Come connect, be heard, understood, and challenged through safe, compassionate therapy and educational, evidenced-based interventions.

My Approach:

Together, we will examine the root of what you are experiencing and identify how you release or make meaning of those experiences.  I believe in the importance of creating a safe space for you to be real.   You don’t have to hide your experience or grief any longer. We will use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques to make connections between your experiences, thoughts, feelings and beliefs so you can decide what each future day holds.  It’s time to identify who you are underneath all of that pain. 

Clinical Supervision:

I am available to provide clinical supervision to pre-licensed individuals working toward full licensure.  It is a passion of mine to connect with new clinicians to listen, teach, and equip you as you move into this life-giving field of healing.  Please contact Kati directly at 719-419-3939 for more information.

AMY RUESCHE, LSW, MSW

Psychotherapist

My Mission: 

 

I am passionate about supporting individuals and families find healing, connection, and reconciliation with death, trauma, and various types of losses through the course of life. I seek to provide educational and evidence-based therapeutic interventions as a means to provide validation, understanding, and empathy to the experiences of grief and trauma. I am dedicated to bringing greater awareness and compassion particularly for people experiencing disenfranchised grief – those who may feel their grief is not “real” or “valid.” I intend to always create a space to hold all types of grief, trauma, loss, and the array of complex emotions that follow these experiences.

 

My Approach: 

I work from a client-centered approach, meaning that myself and my client(s) work collaboratively to reach the client’s goals, or the goals they develop during our work together. I follow my client’s lead to ensure they feel heard and supported in their concerns. I want to create a space that feels authentic and comfortable for my clients to speak honestly and openly, as that is the only way to create true change and healing. I also incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to connect thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and beliefs about oneself into how they interact with the world. Additionally, I integrate Bibliotherapy, Narrative Therapy, Group Therapy, and Play Therapy.
