    About Richard Thomas

    You will feel comforted in therapy by my calm and caring presence, empathy, unconditional positive regard, and genuineness. Together, we will address the issues you are struggling with, create a treatment plan tailored to your needs, and work to find solutions for positive change.

    I work with adults dealing with a wide range of mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, and men’s issues. My specialty is utilizing EMDR therapy to address past trauma and adverse life events to reduce triggers and alleviate mental health symptoms. EMDR is a comprehensive approach focusing on the past, present, and future. In addition to EMDR therapy, I use a diverse range of techniques and interventions such as treatment planning, goal setting, active listening, empathy, mindfulness and relaxation techniques, addressing cognitive distortions, and psychoeducation. I also draw from modalities, including person-centered perspective, cognitive and dialectical behavioral therapy, and motivational interviewing.

    I hold a Master’s degree in counseling and have experience providing therapeutic care in various settings, including community mental health, outpatient and inpatient facilities, crisis intervention and assessment, and private practice. I am a licensed professional counselor in Colorado and a nationally certified counselor. I am also EMDR certified and working towards becoming an EMDR consultant through EMDRIA.

    Outside of therapy, I am passionate about the outdoors and find my self-care through hiking, mountain biking, or rock climbing.

    Feel free to contact me at my phone number for a consultation to see if we would be a good fit or if you have any more questions before setting up an intake appointment.
