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 is often the reason we may feel hindered or stuck in life, and that by processing past hurts 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 is important.

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.

Insurances: Cigna, Aetna, Mines EAP, Self-Pay, Invoicing for Out of Network Benefits 

Specialties: Trauma, Anxiety, Grief, Depression, Adolescents/Young Adults, PTSD, Abuse (physical, emotional and sexual), Substance Use Disorders, and clients with legal issues.


Anessa strives to be open with her clients, letting them know that she appreciates them for who they are.  She does not believe in a one size fits all approach. Her therapeutic style is seeing clients as individuals and working with them to assess the needs and goals they want to work on. Anessa believes the therapeutic relationship is a collaborative process in which you can safely explore and make sense of your life. It is through this understanding that we begin to recognize and process patterns that no longer serve us and make small shifts towards rewriting our own stories.


Life isn’t always easy and that’s ok to admit. Even the strongest people need help to work through life sometimes. Overcoming battles and fighting the hurdles that come your way, whether big or small. Anessa realizes that there are many types of struggles in life and that you shouldn't have to go through them alone, which is why she is with her clients every step of the way.


Whether you are feeling, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem or any other issue. Maybe you aren’t sure what you are feeling but need support. You and Anessa can walk together to figure it out. She has years of experience helping client’s work through their mental health issues in order to create a better tomorrow.


I use an empowerment-focused approach with compassion, and validation to help my client(s) identify their needs, challenges, and goals in the therapeutic space. The modalities included in my approach are CBT, Person-Centered, Mindfulness but most importantly I focus on collaboration and building an affirming client-therapist relationship.

Rebecca Ackerman, Therapist in Denver, Colorado

Rebecca Ackerman, LPC
Lead Therapist and Onboarding Specialist

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.

Offering online sessions only 

Insurances: Cigna, Aetna, Mines EAP, Self-Pay, Invoicing for Out of Network Benefits

Specialties: Stress, Life transitions, Anxiety, Identity issues, Emotional awareness, Career exploration, Chronic pain, Young adults 20s/30s, College aged, ACT, Mindfulness, Holistic health

“When a person tells her story and is truly heard and understood, both she and the listener undergo actual changes in their brain circuitry. They feel a greater sense of emotional and relational connection, decreased anxiety, and greater awareness of and compassion for others’ suffering” (Curt Thompson, Anatomy of the Soul).

Casey received her Bachelor’s degree in Family Studies and Human Services from Kansas State University. She moved to Colorado in her early 20s where she worked in multiple roles before receiving her graduate degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Denver Seminary. It was during those early adult years that Casey discovered the need for extra support in life’s challenging transitions. Anxiety, depression, identity struggles, and lack of self-efficacy are all common byproducts of changing circumstances. Casey has experience working with college students dealing with these issues as they sought meaningful career paths. She has also worked with people wrestling through spiritual questions and is passionate about coming alongside people with chronic pain.

She takes a biopsychosocial approach which addresses health from physical, psychological, and emotional angles. She believes that painful cycles can begin to reverse through the therapeutic relationship and uncovered emotions. Other methods she ascribes to include Mindfulness, CBT, ACT, and Person-Centered Therapy. She is currently working toward full licensure in Colorado.

Like a true Colorado resident, Casey enjoys mountain hikes with either her husband or a good audiobook. She is also a runner, musician, and curator of beautiful meals to be shared with community. Casey feels honored to hold hope for her clients as they embark on their healing journey.
