Lia Burke, LCSW
Offering in person at our Denver office

When we are bogged down by stress, perfectionism, anxiety, depression, or lack a sense of
purpose, we disconnect from our inherent creativity. Perhaps you are navigating a tough
transition, and struggle to see your way through it, let alone what you could create out of it.
Maybe there is a lot inside of you yearning to be expressed, but you feel stuck. Perhaps your
sense of well-being or connection with creativity has been overtaken by social expectations,
whether that be from family, friends, or aspects of society that you do not resonate with. I am
passionate about working with artists, creatives, and/or deep feelers and thinkers dealing with
anxiety, depression, perfectionism, stress, and/or overwhelm. I also specialize in working with
adults in their 20s and 30s navigating transitions in career, education, and/or relationships.
I approach therapy as a creative and collaborative process tailored to your unique needs.
Drawing from Psychodynamic, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical
Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Narrative Therapy, and yoga and mindfulness-based modalities, we
can examine the material of your life, create new structures and goals that align with what’s most
important to you, and develop practices that lead to meaningful change, all while nurturing the
wonderful qualities that enable your creativity.
I have nearly a decade of experience supporting individuals dealing with a variety of mental
health challenges in diverse settings, including higher education, private practice, shelter, and
hospital settings. I am also a certified yoga teacher with training in Trauma-Informed Yoga. I am
culturally responsive, anti-racist, and LGBTQ affirmative in my approach, meaning that I work
to be inclusive of all lived experiences and consider how aspects of your identity may influence
your struggles and your strengths. I also engage in self-reflection on how my own identities and
lived experiences may influence how I show up as your therapist. As a creative myself, creativity
is an important part of my well-being. I love to write poetry, dance, make collages, see theatrical
performances, and immerse myself in all types of art.
By considering therapy, you are taking a meaningful and courageous step toward being an active
participant in your life. If my background and approach sounds like it may be a good fit, I’d love
to hear from you.

"Great communication starts with a great connection. I have been working with individuals and couples since 2015, and I can help you move through and heal the hurt so you can get back to having a life of love and intimacy. It's really easy to fall into the trap of thinking that we are supposed to go it alone and having other people walking alongside us can feel vulnerable. Life is full of challenges; everything from parenting, to work stress, to finding the balance between work, life, and play. Things don't always need to be taken overly seriously, and sometimes the best treatment is finding something to laugh about.
Sometimes when our relationships break down, what we need is to heal on our own. Maybe you feel lonely and disconnected in your relationship, or maybe you struggle to see your own inner worth. Either way, asking for help can be hard. I'm here to be a support, a guide, and occasionally someone to drop a truth bomb or two on you.
I know what it's like to come back from a failed relationship. I can help you heal your relationship or I can help you recover from a broken one. Reach out and I will gladly walk with you and help your pain find its place!"

Specialties: Anxiety, Depression, Trauma of All Kinds, Brainspotting, EMDR, Neurophysiology of
Trauma (Includes Training in Neurofeedback), Polyvagal Theory, Grief and Loss, Motivational
Interviewing, Life Transitions, LGBTQ+, Adults/Young Adults.

Welcome to the new path you have chosen on your mental health journey. I would be honored
to be a guide and advocate as you start on this road less traveled.  Anxiety, depression, and
trauma, if left unexamined and unprocessed, can take on lives of their own and negatively
affect our ability to live more fulfilling lives.

I like to support clients through the lens of their Brain/Body/Mind. I find that when we allow
ourselves to discover our authentic selves through the interaction of the three, it can be a
transformative and liberating experience.  I have benefited from that kind of growth and I
would be humbled and honored to support you on that journey.
It is ever, ever important to be an ally and advocate for my clients. To me, this means creating a
safe, caring, and accepting space to develop a strong, trusting therapeutic relationship.  I use
several modalities to guide and support my clients to heal and grow including being a Certified
Brainspotting therapist, EMDR Trained, and utilizing Neurophysiological Psychoeducation,
Polyvagal Theory, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, and Motivational Interviewing.  I am trauma-
informed and a strong advocate for LGBTQ+ folks.

I am excited to get started and help you heal, grow, transform, and thrive as you travel down
this new, exciting life path.  Welcome!


Martina C Mettes, MA, LMFT
       Soon to be in network with Cigna, Aetna, BCBS, ComPsych & Spring Health EAP

The first step with a new client is getting to know him/her and offer a safe, non-judgmental environment
to explore the issues that brought you in the office. No matter how down you might feel, I know you can
find hope in knowing that you are not alone. You are more “normal” than you might think, and many
people overlook their strengths. It is those strengths that we can build on and as steppingstones toward
a way out of your pain or feeling lost. You also might discover that that you know more where to go
than you thought you did once you make sense of all your negative feelings and thoughts.
I believe in my clients. I aim for them to feel the same about themselves. I am warm, and work on having
a genuine, human connection with you.

I bring long life experience and a background in different cultures as well as professional experiences to
therapy. I have worked with couples and individuals. I will face anxiety, trauma, depression, difficult life
situations and transitions, sexual, religious, and other traumas with you. I use the knowledge of various
modalities, including DBT, CBT, SFT, mindfulness, Internal Family Systems, AEDP as well as

For couples I use Emotionally Focused Therapy as well as Gottman and attachment theory to help you
find more harmony and even overcome infidelity.

I earned my bachelor's degree in psychology from CU Boulder and a master’s degree in Marriage and
Family Therapy from Regis University in Denver. Before my master’s I was a musician and also worked in
different industries. I raised three children who are following their own paths now. I currently share a
home with my two cats who are graciously allow me to live in my own home!

At times we can get lost in figuring out how to navigate the difficulties in our lives, leading to
points of “stuckness” which can feel scary, painful, isolating, and defeating. If your curiosity has
brought you here, I gently invite you to lean into that as this is the first step into unlocking
what’s possible.
I’m passionate about working with motivated individuals and couples who struggle with
perfectionism, shame, depression, anxiety, past traumas, low confidence, life transitions,
relationship and family conflict, infidelity, divorce, or separation. Through the use of
experiential, attachment-based, and emotionally focused frameworks, I support my clients in
exploring their relationships with the challenges that they face and how to transform these into
ways that offer more creativity, courage, confidence, and resilience. When we are better able
to attend to our own pain points, we also give ourselves the opportunity to welcome deeper
connection, understanding, and compassion into our relationships.
My therapeutic style is collaborative, relational, and intuitive. This means that I cater my
approach to you and what works for you, while meeting you where you’re at. This also means
that I will show up with you authentically and invite you to do the same as I believe that when
we can truly show up as ourselves, this is what creates space for positive change. If you are
looking for a therapist who is passionate about empowerment and who will challenge you to
see beyond the “stuckness”, I would be honored to be a part of your journey towards change.

Here you are, taking the first step. I understand that getting to this very point may have felt like a leap of faith and I am here to help the rest of your journey feel safe and empowering. I believe that therapy should be collaborative and will use a person centered and strengths based approach to helping you establish your goals and work toward healing.

While this is about you and your therapeutic journey, I firmly believe that the most important part of therapy is the relationship between the therapist and client. For this reason, I offer a little about me so that you can determine if we would be a good fit for working together. I have had the pleasure of helping people in transition for several years. I possess a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Indiana University and a Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Regis University. As a Marriage and Family Therapist I  support adolescents, individuals, and couples as they work through interpersonal conflicts. My intention working with each client is that they are heard, validated, and offered a wider range of skills and tools to navigate their different environments. My therapeutic style is empathetic, supportive, and engaged. I integrate experiential frameworks backed by research to inform my approach, and value open communication as meaning is being shaped between an individual or a system. My approach is non-pathologizing, meaning I treat individuals and systems based on presenting therapeutic goals. In honoring this I often pull from methods such as IFS, CBT, Solution Focused, EFT, Gottman, and Bowenian interventions. I consider it a privilege to walk alongside others as they work towards their goals. Please come as you are, there are no expectations.

Specialties: Stress, relationships, women's issues, children and teens, ADHD

There are many ups and downs that life brings, and we all need support in processing our emotions and experiences. I offer a highly individualized therapeutic approach, meeting my clients where they are in their mental health journey. I utilize empathetic listening and supportive communication to create a safe, welcoming space to discuss any and all topics, big and small. Therapy should be a judgment-free zone. My goal is to help my clients reach their highest potential and live a more harmonious, and happier life.
I have experience helping clients with anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma, and grief, as well as stress / burnout, life transitions, self-esteem, relationships and family dynamics. But, you don’t need to know exactly what you’re seeking help for; we can work through that together.
Some modalities I use in treatment may include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), psychodynamic therapy and mindfulness-based approaches. 
I graduated with a bachelor’s in Social Work from Skidmore College, and received a Master’s degree in Social Work from New York University in 2016. For the past few years, I’ve worked in Aurora Public Schools supporting students in developing skills to increase their emotional intelligence and ability to cope with life's stressors. In my personal life I enjoy hiking, cooking and spending time with family.

Not accepting new clients at this time

Taking the first step to consider therapy can be exciting, nerve-wracking, and scary all at the same time. I like to establish a warm, genuine connection with my clients in order to cultivate a  sense of trust and safety when we meet. I assist clients in establishing goals and milestones they would like to meet in life and create a plan to help them get there. I believe that unresolved trauma and/or grief is often the reason we may feel hindered or stuck in life, and that by processing past hurts, losses, and traumas, we are more free to be the best versions of ourselves; our true selves. I believe through a lens of self-compassion and acceptance, we can begin to be more kind to ourselves and heal our critical inner voice. Finally, getting clear about our values will help guide our actions, which in turn, helps us to create a purposeful life based on what we believe to be meaningful- not necessarily what the world, society, or family tries to tell us "should be" important.

In my work with couples I utilize Gottman method. The first session we meet together to get an idea of what needs to be improved upon, what issues bring you to couple's therapy, and a general sense of how the interactions and communication are in the relationship. In the second session, we split our time with each partner for individual sessions and I continue my assessment on the pillars that research shows are most important to lasting relationships (the sound relationship house). In the third session, I share a detailed report assessing both your strengths and areas of growth as a couple so that we have a road map of goals to work towards in a tangible, productive way. Current and past clients often express they appreciate that Gottman method offers a structured plan and approach that helps them to start making positive changes in their relationship immediately.

I have a professional background working in K-12 education, higher education, and counseling in the non-profit sector before I opened New Vision Counseling in 2019. I have pursued my passion for couple's therapy and helping people process through trauma by receiving additional trainings in DBT, Gottman Method, trauma-informed care, and EMDR. I am currently working on additional training and consultation to become an advanced certified EMDR therapist. In my free time, I enjoy exploring nature with my two little dachshunds and discovering new coffee shops and bakeries around Denver.

Offering online sessions and in person available in Lakewood

Insurances: Aetna, United, Cigna, Kaiser, self pay

Specialties: Motivational Interviewing, CBT, Person Centered, and Solution Focused
I can understand how hard it is to find a therapist that can relate and really understand.  I have been there, and this is what lead me to pursue a career as a Mental Health Therapist.  After spending years in HR and in the education system I saw a need and desire to reach people on a deeper level and help them with areas of everyday struggles without the stigma of shame or judgment. I pursued my calling and graduated from Colorado Christian University with a Master of Arts in Counseling.

By having worked in a school setting I can understand the struggles and pressure and stress that youths are facing.  In addition, I have also worked with adults with substance abuse and incarcerated individuals.  With my vast experience working with many different ages and populations I am able to identify a person’s needs and work with them in the change process by offering encouragement and without judgement.  I help clients with relationship issues, life transitions, conflict resolution, grief / loss, personal growth, and life management issues such as difficulty coping, anxiety, depression, pre-marital, marital, divorce recovery, self-esteem, stress management, work/life balance, boundaries, and assertiveness skills. I enjoy working with all age groups from 10-100.

My approach to therapy is somewhat different. Yes, we do talk about feelings and emotions, however, I work with my clients through the change process and developing a better self.  I start by developing a safe comfortable environment and really get to know who my clients are. My clients would say that I, challenge and empower them to make healthier emotional, spiritual, cognitive, and behavioral choices. Clients will benefit from an eclectic therapeutic approach that draws from client centered, CBT, Motivational Interviewing and Solution Focused.

I am a mother of two active teenagers, so most weekends you will see me being the team mom at their events. I enjoy family time by hiking, cycling, paddle boarding, movies, and board games.  My friends say I am a kid at heart and can see the good in every situation. My motto, “Live for Today”.

Do you ever feel like your emotions are imbalanced and you can't put your finger on why or how to manage them? Trauma, either in our past or present can affect the way we react in sensitive circumstances. Significant life changes like a move, new job, or new relationship may also have an effect on how you are able to handle certain situations. You may want to discover the why, or you may just want to figure out a solution to regulate the turbulence. Whatever your goals may be, we can work through them together.

Sometimes we all just need a safe space to talk where we don't feel judged and can reflect on our own thoughts. That's why I offer a strengths based, person centered environment so we can work together to create goals you want to achieve. Usually, you know what's best for you, and I'm here to offer the tools and support to find that.
I am here to help you at your own pace and comfort. Please do not hesitate to reach out via phone or email when you feel ready.

We go about our day holding on to the pain of the past or the uncertainty of the future, with the deep fear that we are the only ones struggling. Let me be the first to tell you, that you are not alone. Taking the journey of mental health can be scary, but with the right tools – and a good sense of humor – there is nothing you cannot accomplish. Pain and suffering do not get to define who we are as people, we do. If you are looking to make a lasting change in your life, allow me to be your guide. I work with people from all walks of life who are struggling to see the light in their life. I use different techniques from EMDR, DBT, CBT, Solution Focused, REBT, Psychodynamic, and many more. The first step, as always, is getting to know each other and building up a relationship. Therapy works best when it happens naturally in a safe and welcoming environment. I work with my clients to develop a stronger sense of emotional intelligence to build up their relationship with themselves. We work in a judgment-free zone where we can talk about any problem that you are facing. A willingness to challenge yourself, time, and self-compassion is all that I ask from my clients. Life’s issues are serious, but that doesn’t mean we can’t laugh while we fix them.

Specialties:  PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Domestic violence, Grief, Gender issues, Anger, and clients with legal issues. 

You are not defined by the struggles that are keeping you stuck. Anxiety, depression, trauma, and other life experiences take ahold of our lives and prevent us from reaching our full potential. We experience feelings of hopelessness that we cannot seem to shake. The concept of “self love” can be difficult to even imagine when we have created negative stories about ourselves in our head. No matter what we do, happiness feels so far out of reach. Pain leads us to isolate and accept the belief that we are alone and no one can help us. 

Luckily, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. As hard as it is to believe, suffering gives us an opportunity to grow. Facing our truth and exploring pain allows for old wounds to heal and gives hope for a better future. You have the power to rewrite your story and decide who you want to be and what you want your life to look like. My role is to be by your side throughout this process and create a safe and nonjudgmental place for you to rediscover yourself. I believe that even the smallest steps forward should be recognized and celebrated. I want my clients to feel comfortable to be real and raw, knowing that they will be met with unconditional acceptance. 

I tailor my therapeutic style to each client, based on their individual needs. I approach my clients with trauma-informed care, recognizing that most individuals have experienced trauma on some level. The modalities most commonly used in my practice are CBT, DBT, and narrative therapy. When appropriate, I incorporate mindfulness and support clients in learning how their physical health is connected to their mental health. I have experience working with adolescents, adults, couples, and families.
