Hey there, I’m Michelle Dunn.

LICENSED PROFESSIONAL COUNSELOR AND
TRAUMA THERAPIST IN COLORADO.

I am passionate about helping my clients work through their trauma, anxiety, and panic. Every trauma is unique, and I use a variety of somatic approaches to help heal trauma and anxiety, as well as work through some of life’s big transitions.

These approaches include Brainspotting, EMDR, CBT, DBT, and ACT. My goal is to guide you along on your path to the happiness and peace you deserve in a safe, welcoming, empathetic environment, often virtually from the comfort and convenience of your own home via telehealth therapy.

Your trauma does NOT define you. Let’s put the past where it belongs – behind you.

How Can I Help?


Taking the first step to address working on painful life experiences can seem extremely overwhelming or unbearable. However, once you can process these difficult emotions, you can feel immense relief.

When we experience pain our brain and bodies need time to process through these events to try and make sense of what happened to us. If there is ongoing trauma or stress (events that repeat themselves) or an event that is hard for you brain to make sense of, it will have difficulty processing the experience and can lead to symptoms of PTSD.

Symptoms of trauma & anxiety…

It looks different for everyone.


The way we process difficult emotions and experiences can present differently for everyone. Living with these can feel like you are a prisoner to the symptoms you are still experiencing. It can be debilitating and affects all aspects of your life. If you are still feeling the effects of painful past experiences today, therapy can help you move forward and live a life worth living.

Below is a list of common symptoms in my therapy clients, but it is in no way exhaustive. This is simply a list to help guide you to seek help.

  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Decreased interest
  • Decreased concentration
  • Numbing
  • Insomnia
  • Nervous system dysregulation
  • Hopelessness & fore-shortened future
  • Shame & self-loathing
  • Guilt
  • Nightmares
  • Flashbacks
  • Hypervigilence
  • Mistrust
  • Social anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Chronic pain
  • Self-destructive behaviors
  • Intrusive thoughts, memories, emotions or bodily sensations
  • Consistent feelings of being unsafe
  • Change in appetite or sleep patterns
  • Detachment from others
  • Avoidance of people, places, or things that may trigger memories of trauma
  • Avoidance of talking about the trauma, thoughts, or memories
  • Distorted thinking

Therapy is not uniform.

You are unique, and so is your treatment.


Just as every person’s symptoms of trauma and anxiety are different, so is the way I treat you.

My fee is $150 for 50 minute session, and $215 per 90 minute session. We meet weekly, biweekly, or triweekly, pending your needs. We can discuss your ideal treatment together.

Through a variety of methods including Brainspotting, EMDR, CBT, DBT, and ACT, I can help you heal from experiences such as:

  • Physical abuse
  • Natural disasters
  • Sexual abuse – childhood & adult
  • Developmental trauma, including neglect
  • Near-death experienecs
  • Sports injuries
  • Medical trauma
  • Military & first responders
  • Vicarious trauma in helping/medical professionals
  • Car accidents
  • Community violence
  • Birth trauma
  • Witnessing traumatic events
  • Unexpected or violent death of a loved one

Insurance

I choose not to work with insurance companies due to their rigid guidelines. I believe the best work that can be done is with you as an individual by tailoring treatment plans to meet your unique needs and not the needs of the insurance companies.

As a result, I accept payment via debit or credit card, billable at the end of each session together.

Good Faith Estimate

Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, I am required to prepare a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges for individuals who are not enrolled in a plan, coverage, or Federal health care program, or are not seeking to file a claim with their plan.

Note: this is for your awareness only. It does not require you make a commitment to the length or frequency of sessions.
