I believe that personal growth is an innate human quality that motivates each of us to pursue new goals, strive for clarity and find the loving connections that sustain us through good and trying times. Unfortunately we often get in our own way without knowing the causes, frustrating our efforts to achieve these ends. Commitment and dedication to self-discovery is the first step toward achieving greater emotional freedom. While this can be a challenging journey, the rewards are priceless. Psychotherapy offers the unusual opportunity to be listened to deeply and to learn to listen to ourselves in new ways. My practice provides a setting in which this exploration can unfold. I’ll work collaboratively with you to help you make sense of distressing feelings and thoughts, gain insight into your experiences, and develop a more authentic relationship to yourself and to the world. I believe that clients seeking counseling desire tools for living a more fulfilling life and I strive to provide those tools.
My specialty is offering a highly effective analytic approach augmented with cognitive behavioral techniques (CBT) when appropriate. My work is tailored to each client’s unique needs and finding the most effective approach to alleviate painful symptoms. I am a certified psychoanalyst and I have worked with hundreds of clients over my 20 plus year career. What you can expect from me is this; I don’t see my clients as ill. I see them as people in distress and I will attempt to help but neither as healer or fixer, nor from the outside in. What I provide is help based on your strengths and capacities to collaborate with me. Help that happens from the inside out through conversation and understanding. I do not push change on my clients, but rather help them articulate how they want their lives to be. I believe clients gain the most from the counseling experience when they feel supported and aren’t judged.
I have been a practicing clinician in Boulder County since 1990 in both private practice and community mental health settings and an adjunct faculty member at Naropa University since 1996. I am happy to be part of the team of caring professionals at Krupnick Counseling and I look forward to meeting you.
There will always be rocks in the road ahead of us. They will be stumbling blocks or stepping stones; it all depends on how you use them.
