Sometimes life is hard and it can be difficult to figure out the path forward. Travis believes that one of the greatest gifts in life is working through hard times and coming out the other side with a better understanding of yourself in the process. He has witnessed therapeutic relationships lead to transformative and lasting positive change in the lives of young people and adults. If we decide that working together is a good fit, Travis is committed to supporting your journey so that you may find your path toward healing and growth.  

 

Travis’ style is direct, collaborative and strengths based.

Jill Leversee MA

Psychotherapist

Jill believes in the innate drive in all of us to move towards healing when the appropriate support and guidance is given. She sees the role of the therapist as one that helps shed a light on inherent wisdom already present in the individual, rather than providing answers or solutions from the position of an “expert.” As a dance movement therapist, Jill strongly believes that the body can be a gateway to profound personal insight and transformation. Jill sees the body as a source of wisdom that can help us both understand and meet our most authentic needs. She supports her clients in gaining a deeper understanding of this connection through dance movement therapy, somatic psychotherapy and mindful awareness.

 

Jill received a masters degree in counseling with a focus on dance movement therapy and body psychotherapy from Naropa University. She is currently pursuing dual licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Addiction Counselor in the state of Colorado.  She has a BA in dance, along with many years experience as a dance educator, performer and choreographer, all of which she brings to her work as a therapist. This includes many years working with and mentoring adolescents in these roles. For the past 3 years, Jill’s work has been mostly focused on supporting clients in working with trauma and addiction. For the past 2 years, Jill has worked primarily with individuals in the criminal justice system who are struggling with trauma and addiction. Working with those who often times can feel alienated, isolated and broken has fueled her interest in supporting others to claim their own unique gifts and voice as a way to find a sense of belonging and fulfillment.

 

While Jill has experience in a number of areas, she specializes in:

  • Addiction

  • Trauma

  • Teens

  • Personal Identity

  • Embodiment and the body/mind connection

  • Accessing and owning your unique and authentic voice

Brian Kim MA, LPCc

Psychotherapist

Each stage of life presents us with its own distinct set of challenges and obstacles.  Brian believes that when we learn how to properly direct our energies to meet and then overcome these challenges in our own unique way, we develop and mature towards greater well-being, growth, wholeness, and the freedom to be who we are.  Sometimes, it can feel too overwhelming, confusing, or painful to undertake such trials alone.  Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way.  Seeking support is an act of courage and the first step towards creating the life you deserve.  Brian has experienced time and again the transformative power of the therapeutic relationship and its intrinsic capacity for healing and growth.  He considers it an honor and privilege to walk side by side with you as you discover who you are and who you are growing to become.

 

In his clinical approach, Brian’s work with clients is collaborative and relational in nature.  Together, we identify growth-inhibiting thoughts, habits, and behaviors that no longer serve you, understand the root of these patterns, and learn and apply new tools and behaviors that facilitate growth and life-affirming changes.  By learning to form a healthy relationship with yourself first, you are planting seeds to create positive and sustainable relationships with your loved ones, the greater community, and the environment.  Informed by evidence-based research, Brian utilizes mindfulness-based interventions that draw from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Existential Psychotherapy, Attachment Theory, and Contemplative Psychotherapy.  He also finds great value in walk ‘n talk therapy, hiking, meditation, yoga, and movement therapy that all serve as supplemental resources and inspire his clinical work.

 

Brian is a Licensed Professional Counselor (Candidate) and earned his Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Naropa University with a specialization in Contemplative Psychotherapy.  His approach is unique in that it integrates a blend of both Eastern and Western psychology.  He has been actively working with adolescents and adults professionally in various settings including the Juvenile Assessment Center in Boulder as a Support Group Leader, out in the community, parks, hiking trails, and client’s homes as a professional mentor, at a domestic violence shelter as a counselor, and as a DBT group facilitator at a mental health clinic.

 

While Brian works with a wide range of issues, he specializes in:

  • Tweens, Teens, and Young Adults

  • Boys and Men

  • Depression and Anxiety / Self-Esteem

  • Failure to Launch

  • Trauma

  • ADHD

  • Career Counseling / Life Transitions

  • Mindfulness / Emotion Regulation

Becky Howie MA, LPC

Psychotherapist

Becky believes that all humans are works in progress, and as such, we sometimes get lost or detoured along the way.  Whether you are trying to numb pain, recover from a sudden unexpected change, or actively pursue personal transformation, seeking help in those moments is a sign of courage and strength, not weakness.  We all have an innate capacity for change and healing inside us and the therapeutic relationship can act as a container for that growth.  

 

Becky offers a compassionate, non-judgemental space to explore and work through whatever challenges you might be facing.  Her work is influenced by Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), research on self-compassion, wilderness/nature-based therapies, and a variety of mindfulness practices.  Mindfulness helps create space in between stimulus and response, and in that space lives your ability to choose something different for yourself.  She will work with you to identify and shift patterns that might be getting in the way of your goals and happiness, and allow you to find your path to healing.

 

Becky is a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Colorado.  She has a master of arts degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology with a concentration in Wilderness Therapy from Naropa University.  She also has a background in business and spent a decade working a variety of jobs in the corporate world, so she is all-too-familiar with the stresses and pressures the modern business world can sometimes impose on us and how we can work towards a healthier balance.  She has spent the past 6 years working with teens, young adults and adults in a variety of mental health settings, including home-based mental health care, outpatient substance abuse treatment, and wilderness retreats.  

 

While Becky has experience in a variety of areas, she specializes in working with:

  • Highly Sensitive People (HSPs)

  • Stress, anxiety, and depression

  • Trauma

  • Addiction and family members affected by addiction

  • Self-acceptance and low self-esteem

  • Perfectionism/people-pleasing behaviors that cause us to lose our true self

  • Relationship issues

  • Life transitions

Kelly Bassin LMFT

Psychotherapist

Kelly understands therapy can be intimidating. You may know you need support but it’s scary. She prides herself on being able to put the client at ease and provide a space for exploration. She is authentic, warm and often uses humor to guide the process. Relationships allow us to learn and grow. In the therapeutic alliance we encounter personal illumination through the mirror provided. Together we’ll take a look at the areas where you are feeling stuck and unhappy and find ways to make desired changes.

Kelly believes we live our most fulfilled lives when we can be honest and truthful with those around us about who we are and what we want. This often becomes lost for a multitude of reasons. Therapy is a place to learn more about your truth and how to tell it. Furthermore, Kelly believes that pre-teens and teens benefit greatly from having a benevolent adult to confide in.

Kelly has a Masters Degree from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. She is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and uses an integrative approach to psychotherapy, incorporating attachment models, psychodynamic theory, CBT, mindfulness, visualization, and at times a solution-focused or narrative approach. She worked for six years as a school therapist with pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students. She then started private practice over a year ago, continuing her work with pre-teens, teens and families, as well as individuals, couples and young adults. She values continuing education and is currently studying Emotionally Focused Therapy to deepen her practice.  

While Kelly has experience in a variety of areas, she specializes in working with:

  • Pre-teens, teens and young adults

  • Teens engaging in rebellious behavior

  • Parents

  • Couples

  • Working with anyone impacted by divorce

  • Family members or partners of addicts

  • Existential crises

  • Anxiety

  • Relationship issues/break ups

  • Self-esteem

 
SIM Collaborators

I’m a lifelong learner and adventurer, and I’m passionate about helping others to heal and feel their best. Since 2000, I’ve been fortunate enough to accompany my clients on their journey to wellness which includes improved relationships with friends and family, getting back to hiking and skiing, and being free of pain!

 

Inspired and influenced by nature and Eastern medicine, I completed the four-year program at the Institute of Taoist Education and Acupuncture (ITEA), where I was trained in the Classical Five-Element Acupuncture school. I’ve been on the faculty at ITEA since 2011 and teach point location and theory.

 

One of the cornerstones of my practice is trust. Our sessions can be extremely enlightening, and you may discover areas of your life that are not making you happy, whether it be an unfulfilling career, an unhealthy relationship, or constant chronic pain, either physical or emotional.

 

A tenet of Five Element Acupuncture training combines the energy of the body, mind, and spirit. In doing so, I am able to work with my patients to treat not just the symptoms but join them as we, together, discover the root causes of pain, discomfort, and lack of fulfillment.

 

I’m grateful to be pursuing my passion and witnessing my clients as their lives transform, their pain disappears, and a sense of ease returns to their mind and body. Because of this and my love for learning, I continue to take more than the required continuing education and advanced trainings.

 

I’m a certified Diplomat (Dipl.Ac) by the National Certification Commission in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). I’m fully licensed in the state of Colorado.I’ve trained with the founder of NST and received my advanced certification.

Michel Barta, M.Ed

Reiki Master Teacher

Peace Bridge Reiki

www.PeaceBridgeReiki.com

Michel first became introduced to Reiki over 25 years ago when she worked with a psychotherapist who recommended she try Reiki as a complement to their work together. Since then, integrating traditional and holistic methods has been her cornerstone for experiencing well-being and personal growth.

Naturally curious about organizations, people and cultures, she has served professionally in corporate and private business, education and social services. She received her Masters in Education Administration at Arizona State University, and has obtained several business and educational certificates.

 

With Reiki, Michel has helped people experience ease, inner peace and healing during times of personal and professional transition. Stress in our bodies, mind and spirit often accompanies transition.

She is well-regarded for creating a safe gentle space of non-judgment and meaningful connection.

 

Michel is a Master Teacher of Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki. She is the founder of Peace Bridge Reiki, and is a member of the Reiki Healing Association.

Kate Mulheron

Earth Ways: Energy Work and Guidance

Over the last twenty five years, Kate has practiced many styles of yoga as a vehicle to support her healing and evolution. Kate’s great love of yoga has significantly impacted her practice, life and spirit, and has taught her a greater understanding of the healing power of breath and movement within the physical, emotional and spiritual layers of the human body. In her 30s, Kate faced a crossroads where she knew she had to break out of how she was walking in her life and choose a new way of being which allowed her to be free in her life, in a fuller, more authentic way. During this experience she met her spiritual teacher, Trudy Welty. Trudy is known as a wisdom holder of working with nature in a sacred way. Trudy taught Kate methods of living as a sensitive being in this world by building a bridge working with Mother Nature and the human experience in a cohesive internal balance. She continues in her studies with Miss Trudy.

 

As Kate continued teaching and evolving in her healing ways, how she taught yoga shifted, and through her healing evolution, Kate was guided and then inspired to create a yoga style that worked with the elements of nature. Kate began creating a style with the support of Five Elements Acupuncture, and Earth Ways Yoga began. Kate invited Trudy Welty, a well-trained naturalist, to add even more depth of relationship between the natural world and humans' evolution toward walking in balance on this earth in honoring all the relations. Earth Ways Yoga builds the bridge between Mother Nature and the human experience through yoga, meditation and ritual. Kate and Trudy are honored to be able to stand together to offer these trainings to others who are ready to stand in an authentic way as a teacher in this world.
 

Kate's teaching will help unlock barriers that have held you back from walking a path of vibrancy in this life. Kate is honored to be able to bring her great passion for the art of healing to all that cross her path at all the studios where she teaches, including Yoga Pod and Radiance Power Yoga in Boulder Colorado, Tula Hot Yoga Studio in Denver, and guest teaches at Ra Yoga in Southern California. Kate also facilitates healing circles in her community which incorporate the Seven Directions, the 5 Elements and relationship building with the Natural World.

Ethan Cowan

Certified Feldenkrais Practicioner

I am a body-worker [Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner] and movement facilitator whose formal training comes through the Feldenkrais lineage and whose curiosity and interest in movement comes from somewhere mysterious, deep inside. Luckily my life has been full of opportunities to explore movement through the wonderful cultures of gymnastics, martial arts, skateboarding, jazz music, and contact improvisation.

 

In addition to bodywork and teaching movement classes, I have spent many years as a 'manny' to infants and toddlers, who are the best, most interesting movers out there. The very young have helped me understand how much of an honor it is to help people move through life and to help life move through people. I bring this sense of privilege to my activities as a bodyworker and teacher, where I have the pleasure of helping dancers, musicians, executives, therapists, teachers and others use movement to increase choices, decrease compulsions, reduce pain and increase capacity for enjoyment of life.

Renee Madhurani Wiebe

Yoga Instructor

Renee's desire and purpose as a yoga teacher and trainer is to inspire others to listen to their truth; to look inwards and find the answers there, to connect with their body, heart, and breath and be ready for the changes to come when this happens. What we manifest can often become reality so being ready and willing to see it, receive it, and work with it each day and each minute becomes our daily practice of yoga. Yoga goes way beyond asana and she likes to incorporate meditation, pranayama, mantra, mudras, restorative, and asana alignment and flow into classes. 

 

Renee has been studying yoga for 15 years and still feels like a beginner some days. "If we don’t reach a new level and have to keep starting over what’s the point?" She has many teachers in her life who she continues to study with weekly. She also enjoy being a mother, and a wife, a snowboarder, painter, and her latest passion is playing the guitar.

Elizabeth Ocheltree

Yoga Teacher

Elizabeth is a trauma-informed Hatha yoga teacher. She has more than 600 hours of teacher training and seven years of teaching experience. Her practice and teaching style emphasizes detailed structural alignment to engage focused attention, to cultivate bodily awareness, and to explore the interaction of mind and body. Yoga is a multifaceted practice that contains the paradox of challenge and gentleness, strength and flexibility, contraction and expansion. Elizabeth strives to create a safe and playful space on the yoga mat so that it can become a practical laboratory for self-exploration, curiosity, and the development and application of personal skills, such as balance and grounding, that can emerge from the yoga paradox. 

 

Elizabeth is currently a graduate student at Naropa University, pursuing a degree in clinical mental health counseling with a concentration in somatic counseling. She infuses her knowledge of psychotherapy and her perspective of health and healing into her classes through thoughtful postural sequences and thematic offerings. Her training in mental health counseling informs her ability to be present and supportive.

Laura Tyler​

Kauit Instructor

Laura Tyler loves sharing Kaiut Yoga with people who want to feel more at ease in their bodies. If you've experienced pain or have felt limited due to stress, trauma or as a byproduct of day-to-day living, join Laura in a Kaiut Yoga class, a method of yoga that she has found deeply relieving.  Prior to meeting Francisco Kaiut in 2015 she was in pain and lacked mobility due to a series of injuries to her hip and leg. The relief she felt in her hips after just one sequence of Kaiut Yoga felt like . . . Eureka! She knew she'd found something special. Kaiut Yoga heals by guiding its practitioners toward sensation with kindness and intelligence.
