About Audra and Megan
Audra was born and raised on the Front Range of Colorado. During high school she met and fell in love with the man she continues to adore. Together they have two children and three beautiful grandchildren. She has always loved Colorado, but truly learned to appreciate her home state after living in northeast Texas for 9 years. She enjoys all four seasons that Colorado provides and loves the beauty of the Rocky Mountains.
After 15 years as a dental assistant, Audra realized her true calling. Her heart’s desire was to know her patients on a deeper level and help those who are mentally and emotionally hurting. This awareness drove her to continue her education and pursue a career as a therapist in private practice, allowing God to move in mighty ways. Audra attended Paris Junior College where she served as President for Phi Theta Kappa and continued on to Texas A&M for a year. She moved back to Colorado and finished her Bachelors of Science in Psychology and completed her Master of Arts in Counseling, both at Colorado Christian University.
Audra’s areas of concentration are depression and anxiety, grief and loss, Christian spirituality, self-esteem/image, women’s issues, couples and relationships, pre-marriage, and anger issues. Audra’s therapeutic approach is integrative; utilizing Cognitive Behavioral, Narrative, and Person Centered Therapies. Audra is fascinated with Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) and continues to learn and grow in that approach. IPNB is interested in the link between mind, brain, body, and spirit; as well as the attachments one makes throughout life. Audra believes these attachments, or relationships, are the building blocks of life. When relationships struggle, all areas of life become more difficult, but when we learn how to have healthy relationships and boundaries, we learn how to live the fullest life possible.
Megan was born and raised in Nebraska, with deep family roots and a part of her heart still there. From as early as she can remember, Megan has loved God and loved people. She is drawn to and sincerely interested in people’s stories and life experiences. Her unwavering faith and loving upbringing provided a solid foundation and passionate endurance to journey through and untangle her own life’s pain; her own life experiences brought her to a place which desires to help others do the same.
Megan has loved Colorado since she was a child, and has felt blessed to call it home for 20+ years. Megan is an active Christian, wife, mother, grandmother, counselor, and friend.
In her free time she loves to worship (in her car, at church, anywhere really), date her husband (discovering a new favorite brewery together or prevailing in a backyard patio game of Rumikub, Scrabble, or Yahtzee ;), travel (to the mountains and the beach), read (favorite authors include Karen Kingsbury and Francine Rivers, but lately spends most of her time entrenched in material aimed to help deepen therapeutic approaches), she longs to take nice long walks, and deeply cherishes simple moments with loved ones. Megan and her husband have two grown daughters, a son-in-law, and two granddaughters they feel blessed to juggle their time with. Megan received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology degree in 2014 and graduated from Colorado Christian University in 2016, with her Master of Arts in Counseling degree.
Megan’s area of focus for continued studies is concentrated on relationships and trauma. Relationships may include, but obviously not limited to: dating/engaged/married/divorced couples, siblings, parent-child, families, in-laws, extended and blended families. Megan’s professional passion and therapeutic focus is aimed to relieve and heal the impact that trauma (abuse, grief, loss, anxiety, depression, addictions, etc) may currently have on your most significant and intimate relationships. Megan’s therapeutic approach is both collaborative and integrative. She believes in the exploration process of a client’s narrative and personal story. Megan is trained in EMDR therapy and working towards certification. She continues to research and study relationships and trauma, human sexuality, body work, neuroscience, and DBT.
Megan’s constant prayer is to remain connected to the Holy Spirit, allowing His work to be accomplished through her time with clients.
