I am so honored to walk with individuals on their journey to find hope and wholeness. Life can be a complicated and devastating journey. Individuals who continue to walk through life bravely while carrying pain and confusion can find peace from the chaos. I specialize in counseling services to help broken hearts heals.
Helping mend shattered hearts is my specialty. My desire to help people comes from a place of personal understanding and experience. I spent many hours as a client in the counseling room and I know the vulnerability required to show up and consider telling the truth; maybe for the first time. It takes vulnerability, and often we feel that our vulnerability is what got us into the situation in the first place. Perhaps we’ve vowed never to be vulnerable again.
The importance of a safe, protected environment where you can open in your time is essential to the healing process. As your goals and desires may change over time, we approach them with gentleness and compassion in our counseling services. With great care, and a vision for a future where you are free to be the person you were born to be, we discover and recover your truest self.
I am a unlicensed psychotherapist in Colorado and bring extensive education, training, and experience in group therapy and individual therapy specific to PTSD, complex trauma, sexual abuse and aversion, relationship difficulties, anxiety and depression, and childhood abuse. I am level 3 trained and certified in Internal Family Systems.
My hope is that you find a compassionate, understanding setting for your heart to be heard and understood through our counseling services. Change is possible. You deserve to find hope on life’s journey. I would be honored to walk with you.
Life’s road doesn’t often take us where we thought it would. The expectations of what could have been often keep us stuck and heartbroken. I love counseling because we are built to get unstuck and live with a whole heart.
Life is an emotional journey. If emotional safety wasn’t modeled for us, we often don’t know how to journey through periods of transition. Working with couples to assist in helping them find a better pathway to communication lights me up. When couples connect well, it changes families for generations.
I know what it means to live with a terrifying, long-term illness, and still find hope and meaning. Walking alongside those who are navigating life with uncertainty and periods of crisis due to chronic illness and pain is an area I find most fulfilling. The emotional and psychological side of illness is deep and wide, and I’d be honored to be with you in it.
You are not alone. It would be a privilege to hear you story with patience and acceptance. Let me help you create change, even when it feels like you’ve exhausted all options. Let’s find a new way together.
Life’s road sometimes brings us to new stages through break ups, divorce, co-parenting, or the aging process. Break ups and divorce often have many layers. Parenting brings great joy, confusion, and fear all at the same time. Aging confronts us with issues both logistical and existential. Sometimes we need support to step into these new stages with confidence and courage.
I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Colorado. My philosophy is that when we feel safe, there is always hope for healing, positive change, and opening our hearts and minds to find new possibilities. Let’s explore the possibilities together.
Life isn't always what we anticipated. Wounds often stay with us longer and in deeper ways than expected. Sometimes these wounds are circumstantial, sometimes they are inflicted by others.
Counseling is an important tool to help enhance life, and to help heal from these emotional wounds that have often become infected.
Individuals and couples have the opportunity find their way to secure, lasting, and fulfilling relationships. As we move through life, long-term growth and healing is often something that has felt illusive to many of us. Being present with clients as they learn to get out of their own way, believe in their own inner wisdom, and become available for the healing that exists is where assistance is often needed.
Providing my clients with support and the individualized framework to move into a new season of healing and joy is an experience I treasure. Being with clients as they reach into areas of their lives and relationships where they previously felt stuck is a journey I love having the honor of witnessing.
I believe our biggest personal challenges often manifest in our relationships and it is our relationships where we have a great opportunity for change and true connection. These relationships include parent/child, partners, siblings, colleagues, and spouses. When our wounds get in the way of intimate communication, our relationships suffer. As we heal, all parts of our lives can start to change.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Colorado with decades of experience working with couples, individuals, and teens who struggle to move from habits, pain, and trauma to a life of satisfaction and joy. I know what it means to be a person seeking the right counselor and not knowing where to start. You're in the right place. If I'm not the right person for you, I'll help you find the right one.
With experience, compassion, and warmth, we can move together from where you are to where you want to be. It is possible! Let's walk this journey together.
If you're looking to be cared for, I hope you'll give us a call. I'm the executive assistance at Hedman Counseling Center.
I love helping Tara and the team with what they need to run a smooth business and take good care for their clients. Helping build a strong team is exciting to me. I love being part of a team, but especially THIS team.
Helping create and uphold an atmosphere where we can all do what we do well, without fear or anxiety; where we're able to be ourselves and make mistake so we can all learn and grow together is my daily aim. When the team is well cared for, the clients are well cared for.
I handle a little bit of everything, from executive administrative duties, purchasing, and research, to training, scheduling, feedback, and staffing. Each of these items feels like a way to help Tara walk out her vision for the team and the clients we serve. I am a sounding board, problem solver, and provider of care for personnel.
It's a bit of a stealth position, in many ways. Being behind the scenes, making sure all the cogs in the wheel are in place and running well, thrills me. I like to find the things that need care before anyone else knows they do.
Our mission and vision are why I love being at Hedman Counseling Center. Being a part of a team, whose aim is to live with a free heart and help others find their way also, is a fantastic place to be. Come see one of our wonderful service providers. I'll be cheering you on from behind the scenes!

Being part of a counseling practice that offers hope for real change to its clients and the community is such a gift. I have the pleasure of speaking with clients and those seeking counseling and supporting them when they reach out to us with such courage and vulnerability.
As the client coordinator, I get to connect new clients with the therapist that best fits their needs. I take this role very seriously. Listening to the clients' stories and desires and providing hope as I get them set to connect for the first time with their counselor is deeply fulfilling.
Being the client coordinator at Hedman Counseling Center is part of a dream I'd had for many years. Now that it's come true, I am so thrilled. I've known the staff for many years and am so grateful to have the opportunity to support them and work beside them. Being part of a healthy team is deeply rewarding.
As clients call with fear and trepidation, it is a joy for me to be the welcoming and reassuring voice on the other end of the connection. There is a sense of empowered community fostered by our team that cares deeply for our clients. To be the first link in that chair for clients matters to me.
I know personally the healing possible on the counseling path, and I'm here to support you.
With humor, shared experience, and camaraderie I am honored to connect with you and ensure you have a level, straight, and simple path between reaching out to us for the first time and showing up in your first counseling session.
Life is full of obstacles. It’s difficult when we know we need help but don’t know where to go to get it. I love working with clients as they discover they already have or can learn the skills and tools needed to overcome these obstacles in life.
My philosophy is that each person’s behaviors and thoughts are simply evidence of their trying to meet a legitimate need. Sometimes, we go about meeting those needs in ways that are unhelpful or unhealthy.
When neurofeedback is combined with traditional counseling, those who have otherwise found themselves frozen in old thoughts and feelings find hope and transformation. The life ahead of you can be different than your past, and healing is possible. Even when the patterns are decades old.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and provide neurofeedback services for Hedman Counseling Center. After years of practicing traditional counseling, neurofeedback has changed how I view the process of healing.
I’ve chosen to practice neurofeedback because the effectiveness it provides for clients who feel stuck or have plateaued in traditional counseling is phenomenal. Neurofeedback is the place where my inner nerd and counseling meet. And I love it!
Neurofeedback is effective in helping clients find movement in areas they believed were hopeless. When neurofeedback is combined with traditional counseling, one plus one is greater than two. I would consider it a privilege to walk with you to add another lane to your healing journey.
Hi! My name is Oliver, but everyone calls me Ollie. I work at Hedman Counseling Center. My favorite thing is greeting clients when they come in for one of our counseling services, so they feel welcome. I am kind of shy when I first meet new humans, but my mom says that's good, because each visitor can decide if they want to pet me or not.
Mostly I just chew on my bone while you talk to the nice counselors here. You can pet me, and I'll snuggle with you, but only if you want. Humans sometimes feel better saying scary or sad things if I am close by. My mom says I'm really good at knowing when humans are sad, so you can be sad as much as you need and I'll stay close by.
The more you come to see us, the more I'll know you and learn how best to comfort you during one of our counseling services. I get so excited when you come back and I get to see you and smell your shoes and coat. When you leave, I usually roll over so you can rub my belly. I really like that! And it's ok if you don't want to, it doesn't hurt my feelings at all. What you need is most important and maybe because I'm here you'll feel just a little bit better.
