Grace Ballard, MA, LPCC, LMT, Counselor in Denver
Do you feel isolated in your experience, and could use help sorting it out? Are you tired of cycling through a pattern, and you're ready to make a change? I know how hard it is to feel stuck, and how scary it is to wonder if you'll ever break free of the cycle. Sometimes change feels impossible. You're ready to take a risk, but you're not sure how to go about it. If you want to cultivate more freedom in your life, to feel happier and more satisfied, you've come to the right place.
I'm a poly/kink aware therapist practicing contemplative psychotherapy, which utilizes mindfulness and a belief that we are all intrinsically wise and whole. I can help you reconnect to your basic goodness. We will go at your pace, and create together a warm environment in which new experiences emerge.
I accompany people on their journeys. I will be with you in your pain and your joy. I prefer swimming in the deep waters: exploring the bigger questions around the meaning of life and death, how to find and maintain fulfilling relationships, how to thrive in our precious, finite time here.
