What we offer
Group therapy provides a type of support and validation not often found elsewhere. In group, people are able to express themselves openly and connect with others going through similar difficulties.
Our nature retreats offer respite from daily life to allow for deep reflection and grounding. Group therapy and experiential activities will be offered while camping and hiking through the mountains.
Lauren Andre, LCSW
My passion for helping others led me toward obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Master's degree in Social Work from the University of Denver in 2011. In 2013, I became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. My approach to therapy is integrative and holistic. I strive to create collaborative therapeutic relationships with my clients with respect for each person's autonomy and strength. I aim to meet clients where they're at with empathy and compassion. Utilizing skills from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Acceptance Commitment Therapy, I work to empower clients to make choices that align with their personal goals and values. My experience includes six years as a group facilitator for young adults and adults in a Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient setting as well as 4 years as a private practitioner for individuals and groups. I have provided therapeutic support for people facing various mental health struggles, including anxiety and depression.

My excitement for helping others evolved through my experiences studying abroad. It was there that I realized the power of self-reflection and authentic self-expression. Several years after I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Environment Science, I participated in a wilderness survival course that re-connected me with nature. In 2016, after a career in the family shoe business, I decided to pursue my passion by going back to school to become a Recreational Therapist. My approach to therapy is fun, creative and collaborative. I find joy in seeing a client smile as they grow and mature as a person. As a Recreational Therapist, I guide clients toward their goals by utilizing leisure based interventions involving activities, such as sports, art, music, and more. My experience includes working with adults with intellectual disabilities, children and young adults with social and communication disorders, people with physical disabilities, and veterans, in residential and outpatient settings. I also have experience in developing and implementing adaptive sports programs.
