Meet Our Therapists

Alicia Kwande, LCSW

therapist/Clinical Social Worker

who I work with:

As a perfectionist, you strive to always do your best, but recently something happened that’s hard to adjust to. This unexpected event may be a change in your job or relationship break-up, a pregnancy or new baby, or loss of a loved one. Regardless of what happened, you’re feeling overwhelmed and like you cannot control your emotions. Your guilt and stress over trying to do everything the way it “should” be done is resulting in feeling depressed, anxious, or hopeless.. And some days, you’re not quite sure how you’ll make it through the day. You start to wonder, should I talk to someone who understands what I’m going through?

I am licensed in both Colorado and Texas and can work with anyone in these states. If you're ready for therapy with Alicia, you can book an appointment directly online or contact us for a free 20-minute phone consultation.

Dylan Mackie-hernandez, lpc

therapist

who i work with:

 

You are more analytical in your thinking patterns, and you tend to be highly logical, intelligent, and high-achieving. However, you have difficulty getting in touch with your emotional side, and that is causing you problems in relationships and perhaps even in your career growth. You may be experiencing anxiety (social or generalized), depression, or grief, and you’re not sure how to break free of these negative thinking patterns. These obstacles are separating you from living your most meaningful life. You want move past your anxious or depressed thoughts and feelings, or your intense grief, and break free of patterns that have become an impediment to your happiness.

KRisten Dammer, LCSW

therapist/clinical social worker

She, Her, Hers

who i work with:

I help adults find relief from your anxiety and recover from trauma, women adjust to pregnancy, and moms cope with postpartum depression or anxiety. So many of us suffer from our past affecting our present self and relationships in silence, not knowing how much it has really affected you as a person. Life changes such as pregnancy and a new baby can have a big impact on your mental well-being. My hope is to help you process, understand and eventually find a bit of acceptance, free from the guilt that unsettles so many women and mothers. Therapy that focuses specifically on maternal mental health issues may be the answer you are looking for to help you regain a sense of control over your life.

Shannon Heers, LPC, LMHC, CAS, ACS

owner and therapist

She, Her, Hers

who i work with:

My passion is working with high-level professionals, pregnant or postpartum moms, and parents to help you manage your stress, anxiety and grief. You are trying to balance your job with your personal life and most days you’re feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, and like you’ll never be yourself again. Or as a new mom you are feeling emotions you never thought you’d be having after your baby such as depression, feeling lost or empty, or excessive anxiety that you are getting buried under. You may even want to run away from everything despite cherishing your loved ones and having built up a solid career. When your life balance is out of whack, you and your family are the ones that suffer. You want to feel more in control of yourself and your life but you don’t know what to do or how to do it.

If you're ready for counseling with Shannon in either Colorado or Washington, you can book an appointment directly online, or you can contact us for a free 20-minute phone consultation.
