Megan Olson

Dr. Megan McKnight - Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Founder and Clinical Director

I believe in leaning into life's challenges, its pain and struggle, as well as its excitement and joy. I find that making intentional choices to cultivate and nourish a balanced life decreases suffering and leads to a more meaningful existence. My goal is to help each person I work with become their best version of themselves.

I work with adults of all backgrounds and I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, bipolar disorder, psychosis, relationship dissatisfaction, infertility and challenges associated with reproduction, perinatal concerns (pregnancy and postpartum), and difficulties associated with life transitions. Other common concerns I treat include insomnia, loneliness, low motivation, and lack of direction in life. I have advanced training in the following treatment modalities: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness, Cognitive Processing Disorder (CPT), Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE), and Motivational Interviewing (MI). I am a member of the Colorado Psychological Association and I am a supervisor for masters and doctoral level therapists in training.

I am passionate about finding ways to generate and embrace joy in myself and others. Outside of work, I love the wilderness, deeper connections, and adventures. In my free time, you'll find me hiking, camping, traveling, skiing, exploring, doing yoga, attending concerts, hanging out with my family and dogs, cooking a new recipe, or trying to learn how to love running 🙂

Holly O'Dell-Schlenz, MSW, SEP - Licensed Clinical Social Worker

(Independent Contractor-Holly O'Dell Counseling LLC)

I believe that you have the strength to move beyond your pain, into a space of authentic and lasting life fulfillment. I am here to help you tap into this strength. We often get stuck in our minds and disconnect from our bodies, preventing us from accessing the body’s wisdom, intuition, and resilience. Through uniting the mind and the body, you are able to transcend your struggles and embrace the present moment, cultivating a deep connection to your life. Together, we will work to connect to the body’s consciousness, enabling you to move past negative beliefs and patterns while illuminating the empowered essence of who you are.

Working with women and survivors of trauma is not only my specialty, but my heart’s work. We will work together to mindfully track the nervous system, enabling you to release past experiences and pain. My approach orients around your strengths, so that empowerment, confidence, and connection will thread throughout your healing journey.

I provide individual therapy for adults. My therapeutic approach is rooted in Somatic Experiencing®, Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I specialize in the treatment of trauma, anxiety, attachment, stress, women's issues, relationship dissatisfaction, self-esteem, and difficulties associated with life transitions. I commit to creating a space of unconditional acceptance and support, and to show up to this space with authenticity, compassion, and empathy. I would love to walk alongside you as you begin your healing journey.

Dr. Mike Hart

Licensed Psychologist

Oftentimes in life we find ourselves stuck and uncertain how to move forward. Whether it's anxiety, grief, depression, trauma, difficulties with a life transition, or another issue, I aim to help each person I work with identify what's holding them back and explore ways to generate momentum toward a more fulfilling life.

I work with adults of diverse cultural identities in addressing a wide range of concerns. I treat anxiety, grief, adjustment issues, life transitions, career concerns, depression, stress, relationship problems, social anxiety, trauma, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.  I am also experienced in treating substance abuse disorders through my previous work as a substance abuse counselor. I often work in therapy using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), an interpersonal approach, Motivational Interviewing (MI), Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE), and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT). When applicable to someone's presenting concerns, I am passionate about integrating forgiveness into treatment, as forgiveness was the focus of my doctoral research. My approach to therapy has been described as warm and gentle.

Prior to my work as a therapist, I worked as a writer and editor, first in journalism and later for an online learning company. Outside of my work, I enjoy listening to music, playing guitar, running, hiking, playing games (including Dungeons & Dragons), and watching baseball. I love to travel and have been privileged to spend time traveling abroad on several occasions during my life (my favorite countries visited are Italy and Japan).

Emilie Nicotra, MSW - Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I believe that life can be both challenging and full of surprises.  As we go through our day-to-day life experiences, we may be faced with obstacles that can interfere with our growth and cause us to lose sight of our larger goal and the life we want to live. I believe that it is my role to create a supportive environment where you can learn to be compassionate and grow into your best self.  

As a therapist, my goal is to create a safe, empowering, and non-judgmental environment where we can explore your life story and work collaboratively to gain insight and develop skills that promote self-compassion and self-reliance.  I strive to help you develop a life that is aligned with your values and your best version of yourself. I specialize in working with emerging adults and adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, life transitions, stress management, relationship issues, and work/life balance.

Therapy can be very difficult, but I believe in its importance because it gives us the chance to see ourselves, our relationships, and the world in a different way. Therapy also helps us build the skills necessary to achieve our goals. My approach to therapy is collaborative, goal oriented, and focused on building a strong therapeutic relationship that creates and environment of trust and respect that allows us to grow and solve problems together.

Furthermore, I am passionate about helping improve mental health access in the community. Prior to making my career switch to counseling I was a teacher so I have unique experience to offer teachers as well as any other adult who is considering or in the midst of a career transition. 

The therapeutic modalities that I utilize in my practice are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Interpersonal Social Rhythm Therapy (IPSRT), Cognitive Processing Therapy, Exposure and Response Prevention, and Person-Centered Therapy.

I believe in living a mindful and intentional life, making choices that are meaningful and healthy, while maintaining awareness of our own thoughts, feelings, and how we interact with others. We can sometimes experience difficulties in life when our physical state, thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and social factors all intersect in a way that negatively impacts our well-being. 

My goal is to help clients by understanding how certain factors may play a role in their development, health, processing, and conflict. Therapy can be most effective and beneficial when there is an approach that considers the whole person.

I am deeply passionate about helping individuals who experience chronic illness and/or pain, ADHD, anxiety, relationship challenges, attachment concerns, self-esteem, social anxiety, life transitions, stress, insomnia, disordered eating, perinatal concerns, panic, PTSD, and depression.

I utilize techniques from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia, and Person-Centered Therapy.

Prior to my work as a therapist, I worked in the medical field as a pharmaceutical consultant and clinical educator. In my free time, I enjoy going to the mountains, skiing, golfing, and kayaking. I love watching documentaries and mysteries, collecting books, traveling, attempting a pescatarian lifestyle, visiting with my friends and family, and learning how to make exercise a lifelong habit.

I believe that while we cannot always control the challenges life deals us, we can control how we react to them. Oftentimes we find ourselves stuck as we are confronted with unique challenges or our ways of dealing with lifelong challenges no longer effectively serve us.
