Amanda Kramer, MA, LPCC (Independent Contractor, CO)

Welcome!

*Many of my clients have worked with other counselors/therapists prior to working with me and have said that they’re relieved to have finally found a therapist who cares about them. I’m ready to care for you, too.

My name is Amanda, and I am delighted that you are here.

If you are suffering, curious, motivated, scared, nervous, defensive, angry, not feeling anything, guarded, questioning, unsure, ashamed, ready, excited, all of the above or none of the above, I welcome you as you are. You’re not broken and it’s not hopeless. There are reasons you are the way you are and behave the way you do, and we can work to uncover and understand those reasons.

We will approach together what you’ve been too afraid or hesitant or nervous to approach and discover together how you can be the person you’d like to be, heal, change, and/or grow. I am an evidence-based therapist who incorporates neuroscience and how the brain works to sustain meaningful change. If you have been feeling alone or lonely, you are alone no longer. I am here as a safe, secure base so that you can do your work alongside me. I will see you, accept you, and help you. I’m not scared or judgmental of you or anything that you want to share with me. It would be my honor to meet you and work with you, an honor for you to allow me “in.”

I enjoy serving a broad range of clients, and client issues of special interest include anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, loneliness, insecurity, grief, shame, difficult transitions, relationship difficulties, self-esteem, mood disorders, eating disorders, and ADHD.

Client Focus: Individual Adults and Minors aged 12+

Treatment Approach: I take an integrative approach, integrating person-centered, AEDP (accelerated experiential dynamic psychotherapy), psychodynamic, neuroscience, attachment-based, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing with a trauma-informed, strengths-based approach, utilizing the evidence-based treatment modality appropriate to the client and presenting issues.

Martina Mettes, BA, LMFT (Independent Contractor, CO)

I strongly believe that therapy can help you function at your best, individually, and relationally. Therapy helps to address psychological, behavioral and emotional obstacles that stand between you and how you want to be. It also can help you face difficulties with more ease, work toward resolutions and solutions, and experience more joy.

When people are not at their best, they know and feel it, but often can’t pinpoint why. They feel sad, anxious or depressed, or feel they don’t fit in or not understood by others. This can be a lonely place. Many have been stuck in their situation for a while, even years, before they look for help. It can be overwhelming. The good news is that people can and do change. Sharing and voicing your issues with a therapist can be a great starting point.

As a therapist I will be on your team. I will listen attentively and be there to help you find and express your voice that has been kept down for so long. If you come in as a couple or family, I am there to help everyone to be heard and understood and then team up with all to have healthier and more productive relationships with each other and yourself.  You, as an individual or part of the family or couple, can learn to see what is going on. You can learn to make yourself understood and understand others, you can learn to see your thinking, behavioral, emotional and belief patterns that have kept you unhappy for so long. What is great is that you can find and implement new patterns that will make your life more productive and more joyful.

Everyone starts were they are, today, no matter where that may be. It doesn’t matter where you start. What matters is that you want to go forward to where you want to be. I feel excited and privileged that I may support, encourage and accompany you on this exciting and challenging journey.

I have a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Colorado (Boulder) and am working on my masters in Marriage and Family Therapy at Regis University (Denver). I have worked with clients at the Regis University MFT center in Thornton. I have worked with Gottman Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) and Solution Focused Therapy.

Currently I am working on my certification in EFT. I have worked with teens, adults, elderly, couples and families. I know that many (if not all) of us have experienced trauma and that determines a lot of our obstacles. I am familiar with somatic experiencing, and brain spotting and mindfulness.

Beside my studies and certifications, the greatest teacher has been life itself. I have learned from being a mother and a spouse, from divorce and re-marriage. I am the mother of three (mostly grown) kids and stepmom of three grown step kids. Each of those journeys have given me joys and challenges and the learning continues, since none of us is ever final in our growth. I have experience with LGBTQ challenges through one of my kids, their friends and as a parent.

Things I enjoy and that have taught me also are music (listening, playing and teaching), nature, reading, foreign languages (I wish I could speak more of them), Youtube, (my) kids and stepkids, reading, traveling and talking with and listening to people.

Nonie Rand  (CMHC student Intern, Colorado)

Nonie is a graduate student at Colorado Christian University completing her Master of Arts in
Clinical Mental Health Counseling. She received her bachelor’s degree in Speech
Communication from Colorado State University.

As a mother whose observed therapists working with her children, and having been a client in
therapy herself for over 25 years, Nonie recognizes that a therapist's academic qualifications,
formal training, and techniques are not the primary indicators of their effectiveness. Instead, she
understands that the quality of the connection between the therapist and the client is paramount.
Although Nonie is accumulating more credentials to her name, she believes that it is her
authentic self that truly enables her to be an effective counselor. She aims to be an empathetic
witness to her clients' thoughts, feelings, and experiences, listening without judgment or
condescension. 

Her therapeutic style is highly collaborative. Nonie believes that her clients hold the expertise on
their own lives and selves, while she assists in illuminating their values, unlocking their
potential, and overcoming the obstacles that impede their dreams. She integrates various
evidence-based therapies tailored to each client's unique needs, including Internal Family
Systems Therapy (IFS), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Functional Analytic
Psychotherapy (FAP), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
(CBT). This approach allows her to adapt her methods to best suit the individual circumstances
and goals of her clients.

Nonie's personal journey of healing from trauma inspired her to pursue a new career in the
mental health field. She is dedicated to participating in the healing and self-discovery process
with her clients and looks forward to being an integral part of each individual's therapeutic
journey. In addition to her mental health work, Nonie has been a nationally certified fitness
professional for 25 years, teaching yoga, Pilates, dance, high-intensity interval training (HIIT),
and strength-based classes. She incorporates physical movement into her therapy sessions, using
mindfulness techniques as a tool to help her clients work through past pains and strive for a
better present and future.

Vanessa Fagnant, M.T.S., MFTC (Independent Contractor, CO)

I am a wife, and mother of three young children. I know the struggles of Marriage and Family, but I also know the joys.  Not only have I completed a Masters in Marriage and Family Studies (M.T.S.) and Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) Masters from Regis University, I have been on my own personal journey of embracing joy with every challenge of life.  Sometimes the positive CORE emotions can be overlooked in therapy.  I believe in expanding both positive and negative experiences as outlined in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy.  I look forward to accompanying other families, couples, and individuals in their journey to find hope and joy in whatever life brings.

My master's in Theological Studies gives me a profound respect for all humans.  I have integrated the philosophy of “Being as Gift” into the Human Validation Model of therapy. This philosophy highlights who we are as humans, and shifts the value from what we do to who we are. So often we do not learn this message in today’s society or from our Family of Origin. Sometimes we need help shifting our views and learning to validate and affirm our unique selves.

Practice Specialties or Areas of Interest:

I enjoy working with couples and families from all backgrounds.  I have a special heart for Latino families (since I grew up with a stepfather from Peru).  I am also able to offer a unique experience for Christian and Catholic couples and families wishing to integrate God as an attachment figure (as outlined in Dr. Johnson’s book Created for Connection ). I help couples and families resolve conflict by identifying the underlying emotions and cycles or patterns (using EFT).  Identifying “the cycle as the problem” helps resolve conflict and move into positive patterns and ways to communicate.

I have worked with teens for over 7 years in youth ministry (large and small group settings).  I worked with children from preschool to 8 th grade in a private school setting, so I am comfortable and willing to see families of all ages.  I use play therapy (available for all ages) and imagery to engage integration of right brain to aid processing of anxiety, depression, and relational trauma.

Ages Treated: Teens ages 13+ and Adults

Treatment Approach:

  • Emotionally Focused Therapy (Completed EFT externship)
  • Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT)
  • Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP)
