Denise Barnes, MA, LPC, REV is a licensed therapist, trained life coach, teacher and trainer who has worked in mental health and health care since 1992. She has experienced both sides of life’s challenges, doing deep personal work to grow, as well as supporting others in the areas of managing stress, coping with setbacks and grief/loss, health and habit challenges, and communication skills for decades. Her mission is to help people live their best life, full of love, creativity and joy.

Denise specializes in helping people get help that goes deep, quickly. It’s easy to get stuck or traumatized in life, and that will muddy the lens of how you see life. What you see, is what you then get. But what excites her today is new brain science that fuels new therapy techniques. What does this mean to you? Therapy can be more effective, sooner. Whew! Yes it takes some time, but just entering therapy often can give you valuable change right away.

Denise has a private practice for therapy, coaching and consulting based in Boulder CO. She also is a reverend and can facilitate weddings, memorials, and design rituals that honor life transitions and celebrations.
