Meet Our colorado Therapists

Sean CarrolL
intern Therapist


who I work with:


I help men, anxious adults, and those seeking improved relationships to become “unstuck” and get to the root of the problem, so you can focus on the things in your life that are meaningful. If you are struggling with anxiety, panic, or even addiction that is disrupting your relationships and/or work, it’s common to turn towards alcohol, avoidance, or inaction.

You may feel lonely, like you’re the only one out there with this problem. And therapy can be confusing - how does it actually work, and can it really help me? The answer is “yes” - counseling can be life-changing, if you are brave enough to look inside yourself and create a different path than the one that you are on. I can help!

who I work with:

I help older teens and adults with anxiety, stress, and relationship challenges to find new ways of relating to yourself, your life experiences, and other people so you can find greater joy and authenticity in your everyday life

You are feeling disconnected from the life you want to live and are ready to do something about it. The first step is usually the scariest, so kudos to you for seeking support! Navigating life as a human is not always easy and you might be experiencing challenges that feel overwhelming and out of your control. You may be struggling to manage stress, work through issues in your relationships, or break free from anxious thoughts and feelings. You are seeking a safe space to talk with someone who will listen with compassion and strive to understand your unique experience.

If you feel ready to take these struggles on with support from Juliette, contact us for a free 20-minute phone consultation!



Kristen Dammer, LCSW, ACS
therapist/Licensed Clinical Social Worker

who I work with:

I help adults with trauma and ADHD, pregnant and postpartum women, and other therapists who feel overwhelmed and unsupported to regain your life back, so you can once again feel whole. You might be a new mom that feels like a failure because “momming” isn’t the ideal experience you see on social media. Or perhaps you are newly diagnosed with ADHD and your sense of identity is shaken. Maybe you experienced a trauma that your family and friends seem to dismiss or you never worked through, and now it’s affecting your relationships. Finally, you might be a therapist in the field who is looking for extra support to manage the difficult work you do everyday.


I’ve worked with many clients just like you, and I can help. I provide supportive listening, coping skills, EMDR if indicated, understanding and resources as you grapple with all that is affecting you. You can get through this!

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

Marie Clyne, LSW

therapist/Licensed Social Worker

who I work with:

You may be experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, or ADHD, and are feeling like you just can’t catch a break. You’re overwhelmed, constantly on edge, and making it through each day is like running a marathon that you were unable to train for. Dealing with all of this inside of you makes you feel so alone, believing that no one understands how you’re feeling. 

I work best with those of you who are experiencing work-related stress and relationship issues, as a result of feeling down, swamped, stressed out, or too scattered. What you want to get from therapy is compassion, understanding, and solid solutions for getting back to your “normal” self.

If you're ready for therapy with Marie, you can book an appointment directly online or contact us for a free 20-minute phone consultation.

Frankie 2.jpg

Frankie Washofsky, LPCC


who I work with:

I help adults with anxiety, ADHD and trauma to manage stress and navigate healthy relationships, so they can overcome shame, feel more confident, and be more connected with others. And if you are on the Autism spectrum or part of the LGBTQIA+ community, I will help you embrace your unique identity and strengths.

You long for successful, close relationships, but find yourself struggling to put yourself out there, and you wonder if you’ll ever be good enough.

If you are a survivor of trauma or narcissistic abuse, you may be feeling disconnected from yourself and others, or your anxiety may be causing you problems. You may feel that having needs or wants of your own are not as important as what others want or need.

Many of my neurodivergent clients and/or those in the LGBTQIA+ community experience excessive worry or depression symptoms due to shame or loneliness, resulting in masking how you are feeling or who you are. Developing a healthy relationship with yourself and others when you are “different” can be a challenge. And if you are exploring polyamory, or are kink-curious, you may also be afraid of judgment. 

You know that something needs to change, but you’re not sure where to start. If your feelings of overwhelm, anxiety, depression, and exhaustion are becoming too much, I can help.

If you're interested in counseling with Frankie, contact us for a free 20-minute phone consultation!

Pansy 3.jpg

Pansy Ayala, LCSW
therapist/Licensed Clinical social worker


who I work with:

I help adults including parents, pregnant and postpartum women, and those from multicultural backgrounds who are feeling disconnected from themselves or loved ones to improve their relationships so they can feel more fulfilled and self-assured. As a parent or expectant parent, you want the best for yourself and your family. But maybe you are losing confidence in your role as a parent or your connection with your partner or children is unraveling. Or maybe you are trying to merge your culture of origin with another person or culture, and don’t want to lose your identity in the process.


Many of my clients experience anxiety, depression, or even grief as life changes occur. Both relationships and parenting, along with melding different cultures, can be challenging! If any of this sounds like you, it might be time to reach out for extra support - I can help.

If you're interested in meeting with Pansy, you can book an appointment directly online or contact us for a free 20-minute phone consultation.

Jessica Intern 3 medium_edited.jpg

Jessica Carpenter, LPCC


who I work with:

I help adults who have experienced stress or trauma to develop better self-regulation skills so you can cope better in difficult situations.

People I work with are often seeking support for depression, anxiety, or difficulties in interpersonal relationships as a result of past trauma or stressful events. You may feel overwhelmed, have difficulty focusing, lack energy, or have difficulty sleeping. Feeling chronically stressed, emotionally dysregulated, or engaging in self-damaging behaviors may be driving you to seek support.


What happened to you in your past doesn’t have to define who you are now. You can grow and learn how to better figure out whatever life brings your way!

If you're ready for therapy with Jessica, contact us for a free 20-minute phone consultation!

Chris 3 large.jpg

Chris Campassi, LPC, LCMHC, ACS


who i work with:

I help men, medical professionals and former athletes to manage stress, create a more satisfying work-life balance and reconnect with the people and activities that are most important to you. Do you consider yourself a  high-achiever, working in a demanding environment? Do you often find yourself doing things yourself because others aren’t able to, or won’t? Do you sometimes feel that there is not enough time in the day to do what you need to do, or what others expect you to do?


If so, you may feel exhausted and overwhelmed. You might even find yourself feeling resentful towards others. You may also be more withdrawn or isolated, devoting more time to work and responsibilities, and less time enjoying your hobbies or spending time with loved ones. You may even be using alcohol or other substances to remedy feelings of anxiety or depression

If you're ready for counseling with Chris in Colorado, North Carolina, New Jersey or Pennsylvania, you can book an appointment directly online, or you can contact us for a free 20-minute phone consultation.

Shannon Heers, LPC, LMHC, CAS, ACS
owner and therapist


who i work with:

I help high level professionals, couples, and pregnant or postpartum moms to navigate your challenges with resilience and clarity, so you can prosper in your relationships both personally and professionally. You may be feeling unsatisfied with your relationship, or you have hit some road bumps in your communication with your partner. Common relationship challenges that I work with are communication issues, conflict management, child and baby stress, and emotional distance. I am LGBTQIA+ affirming.


For individuals, trying to balance your job with your personal life can make you feel frustrated, overwhelmed, and like you’re losing what is important to you. Or as a new mom you are feeling emotions you never thought you’d be having after your baby was born, such as depression, feeling lost or empty, or excessive anxiety that is burying you.

When your life balance and relationships are out of whack, you and your family are the ones that suffer. I can help you reset your priorities, explore the meaning behind challenges in your relationship, and get more control over yourself and your life. You got this!

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.
