Kathy HigginsEveryone is challenged at times in life by trauma, grief and pain that can be difficult to endure and may be eased with the assistance of a compassionate, non-judgmental counselor.

Let me provide a safe, validating space and assist you as you face your challenges, discover new choices and find solutions.

In my practice, I specialize in providing individual counseling to men and women who would like to invite acceptance and initiate change in order to live more effective and joyful lives.

I specialize in individual counseling with men and women. I offer DBT therapy groups which are co-facilitated with highly knowledgeable colleagues. I welcome all genders, all races, all ages and sexual orientations and all those differences of life situation, background, and ability that increase diversity. I strive to make the process of change safe. I try to balance the need to be justly compensated for my labor with my commitment to make this work available to people of different economic levels.

I have an office in Littleton near Bowles and Wadsworth

I provide individualized counseling focusing on developing effective coping strategies, developing effective skills for problem solving, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, resolution of trauma and PTSD, and relapse prevention strategies for substance abuse. I am fully trained in several researched and evidenced based techniques including DBT (Dialectic Behavior Therapy), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), and Motivational Interviewing (MI).
