2138196501Welcome aboard the relationship journey.

Welcome to the exhilarating journey of love and connection! I’m your trusty navigator on this rollercoaster ride, and I promise you, it will be one heck of an adventure.

Relationships start with the sunshine and rainbows phase.

It’s like living in a fairy tale when everything is sunshine and rainbows in your relationship. Isn’t it?

Your love story is unique and extraordinary – worthy of all the recognition in the world. The bond you share with your partner is a force not to be underestimated, providing you with a reason to persevere and never lose hope.

Navigating unexpected turns brings challenges.

But hold on tight because sometimes things take an unexpected turn for the worse.

Those loving glances can turn into frosty stares, and you wonder if an imposter has replaced your partner.

You might even think, “I don’t deserve this!” Your strong connection morphs into a crisis, and you begin to question the health of your relationship in the face of mounting challenges.

2027415164Transform those connections!

Fear not, for I am here to help you navigate the complex terrain of relationships and transform your connection into something extraordinary.

I specialize in developing secure-functioning relationships because, let’s face it, we all have difficult moments, even me!

But the real challenge is when one of you crosses the line and becomes too much pain in the rear.

Learn to empower harmonious partnerships.

To make relationships less complicated and more harmonious, I provide couples therapy that empowers partners to work together seamlessly.

When you both master the art of repairing and reengaging, your relationship can move out of crisis mode and back into the deep connection you cherish.

Let me guide you toward a better relationship.

My mission is simple: to help couples like you build strong, safe, and secure relationships. When you’re secure functioning, you’re like the dynamic duo of the universe, ensuring that each other feels utterly safe and secure.

It’s a partnership where both parties agree to make life easier for one another, not harder. Such a partnership is the cornerstone of a secure-functioning relationship, and I’m here to guide you on this incredible journey.

On another note, sometimes it’s best to part ways. In this case, I’m here to guide you on the journey to healing, growth, and rediscovery after a significant breakup or divorce.

I empower women and men not just to survive but thrive during this transitional phase. With the proper support and tools, I firmly believe you can reclaim control of your life, rebuild your self-esteem, and nurture your emotional well-being.

Experience a holistic approach to recovery.

My approach is holistic. I address the emotional, mental, and physical challenges of loss and the practical aspects of recovering from heartbreak.

This approach is about nurturing your whole self, ranging from your inner emotional landscape to the tangible changes in your life.

Take the path to resilience and transformation.

Together, we’ll embark on a journey of healing and growth. You’ll discover your inner strength, rebuild what may have been shaken by your relationship, and emerge from this phase of life with newfound resilience. With my support and a holistic approach, you can take charge of your life post-divorce or breakup and create a brighter and more fulfilling future than you ever imagined.

So, whether you’re in Boulder or beyond, I’m here to provide Couples Therapy and guide you on the journey to secure functioning and relationship excellence. Let’s work together to strengthen the bond that matters most – the one you share with your partner.

Or, if you’re ready to embrace a new beginning after a significant relationship ending, I’m here to walk beside you every step of the way. Let’s embark on this empowering journey together and let the transformation begin.

About Teena Evert, MA, LMFT, BCC

teena-evert-in-officeI wear two hats in my world of relationship expertise.

I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Board-Certified Relationship & Communication Coach, best described as an evidence-based, grounded, earth-bound person whose therapeutic approach is intuitive, compassionate, holistic, and effective.

My specialty? Primary relationships. Couples Work.

I work with committed monogamous couples eager to cultivate, expand, and grow their relationships. I offer Couples Therapy, whether you prefer to meet in person in Colorado or through the magic of video sessions. I am licensed in Colorado and Washington.

I also work with individuals battling core wounds that are rooted in childhood. Helping people heal from wounds around childhood and relationships, attachment, and complex trauma are my specialties and passion. This is also where my practice as a private practicing psychotherapist has really gone over many years.

In addition, I also provide relationship and communication coaching online for those of you near and far.

My mission is to help people heal their primary relationships so they can experience more ease, joy, and vitality in their lives.

Now, let me share a bit about my background.

I hold a master’s degree in clinical psychology, specializing in infant and adult attachment, arousal regulation, complex trauma, developmental neuroscience, compassionate communication and and Intuition Medicine®.

My journey into Couples Therapy began with individuals and families facing challenges like personality disorders, addictions, and trauma.

Over the years, I’ve been fortunate to study under prominent experts in Marriage and Family Therapy, Couples Therapy, Holistic Integral Psychotherapy, Nonviolent Communication and Intuition Medicine®.

My advanced training and certifications include PACT Couples Therapy, The Gottman Method, Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy, Nonviolent Communication, Intuition Medicine®, Integral Psychotherapy, Integrative Somatic Trauma Therapy, and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. These have all shaped my approach to helping individuals struggling with relationship issues.

My passion for learning and commitment to personal and professional growth drives me to continually enhance my knowledge and skills as a natural healer, (often a) mediator, and psychotherapist a core focus on compassion.

Teena Evert LmftPersonal experiences catalyzed my interest.

My academic training laid the groundwork, but my personal experiences were the real architects of my journey. Relationship crises were pivotal moments that propelled me to heal from early attachment wounds and adult relational trauma.

Before donning the hats of a psychotherapist and relationship coach, I wore many others, including roles like Structural Integration Practitioner, Therapeutic Yoga Teacher, and even Fish Biologist.

In the wake of my father’s passing in October 2021, I felt compelled to share my journey. This led to the publication of Cracked Open: Healing from the Pain of Loss in February 2022. The book offers a deeply personal perspective and a fresh outlook on overcoming life’s challenges, making life a little more manageable. It’s a lifeline for anyone dealing with grief, whether it’s the loss of a loved one, the end of a relationship, or significant life changes. Please see my page on Grief and Loss.

Zmbl2ehqbdmojr7vcegs2I have a life outside of work!

I’m a bit paradoxical – thriving on adventure and routine (the fun kind).

You’ll often find me frolicking outdoors, soaking up an active life. I’m all about maintaining that well-rounded fitness – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. My daily routine includes meditation, the stimulating moves of Kaiut Yoga, scaling the foothills and Colorado peaks, biking through scenic routes, gliding on XC skis, and embarking on backpacking adventures with my closest comrades and life partner.

Nature is my soul’s favorite buffet, and I aim to savor it at least once a year during a silent meditation retreat.

I wear my heart on my sleeve and have a knack for tuning into the emotions of others. I’ve delved deep into the world of Intuition Medicine® to harness these special abilities. It’s all part of my grand plan to weave my unique gifts into my client work and craft the life of my dreams.
