Kathy Williams-Tolstrup, LPC, EMDR, Licensed Professional Counselor in Fort Collins
I provide a safe and caring environment where you can begin the transformative journey of uncovering core issues and limiting beliefs that may be obstacles to your emotional health and well-being. My style can best be described as non-judgmental, compassionate, and collaborative. I offer a blend of the best practices of Western Psychology and the mindfulness-based approaches of the East. I invite you to ask me questions about my therapeutic approach and what our work together might look like.
I am trained in EMDR, an integrative psychotherapy approach proven effective for the treatment of trauma. I am also an IFS therapist. IFS offers a clear, non-pathologizing, empowering method of understanding human problems that invites therapist and client to enter into a transformational relationship in which healing can occur.
I have attended several trainings with Brené Brown and am a Certified Facilitator of the The Daring Way(tm) based on her groundbreaking work on vulnerability, courage, worthiness and shame. I offer group retreats for women based on the Daring Way. For more information please visit my website.

Kathy Williams-Tolstrup's Groups

Daring Way(tm) Retreats for Women

During our weekend we will explore vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We will dig into the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back and identify new choices and practices to move toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The Daring Way(tm) - the foundation of Cultivating Courage - is a highly experiential methodology based on the groundbreaking research of Dr. Brené Brown. This method was developed to help us to show up, be seen, and live braver lives. The primary focus is on shame resilience skills and developing a courage practice that transforms the way we live, love, parent, and lead.
