Kathy Williams-Tolstrup, MEd, LPC, EMDR II, CDWF
I am a psychotherapist who is in private practice in Fort Collins, CO. I provide a safe and caring environment where you can begin the transformative journey of uncovering core issues and limiting beliefs that are the obstacles to emotional health and well-being. My style can best be described as non-judgmental, compassionate, and collaborative.
Trained in contemplative practice for over 30 years, I offer a blend of the best practices of Western psychology and the mindfulness-based approaches of the East. My trainings include EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) and IFS (Internal Family Systems). EMDR is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has proven effective for the treatment of trauma. The IFS model of psychotherapy offers a clear, non-pathologizing, and empowering method of understanding human problems, as well as an innovative and enriching philosophy of practice that invites both therapist and client to enter into a transformational relationship in which healing can occur.
I have attended several trainings with Dr. Brené Brown and am a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator, based on Dr. Brown's groundbreaking work on vulnerability, courage, worthiness and shame.
