Lee Walton is a Licensed Professional Counselor. He has been in private practice since 2010 and graduated with a Master of Arts with honors in Community Counseling from Regis Jesuit University of Denver.
Lee works with adult individuals and engages counseling using a client centered style at a pace that is personable and comfortable for his clients. The foundation for Lee’s approach to healing is Jungian Psychology based on the work of Carl Jung. As Jung discovered, Lee also believes that psychological distress is a result of a psychic imbalance that is experienced consciously as feelings of alienation and isolation from within one’s self. The imbalance affects and distorts our ability to think rationally, to feel stable, and work productively. It sabotages how we relate to others by threatening self expression and creating thoughts and fear of judgment, rejection and betrayal. Jung believed that by healing this rift through self-exploration, we come to know and accept our self and in doing so become genuinely open to others and the effects of the world around us.
His area of expertise includes:
- Self Esteem
- Grief & Loss
- Childhood Trauma
- Sexual Trauma
- Life Transitions
- Relational and Family of Origin issues
- Personality and Mood Disorders
Lee applies an integrated approach based in Jungian Psychology with other modalities that he considers work well collaboratively such as Gestalt and Narrative therapies. Collectively, these modalities incorporate the dynamics of body and mind in the process of healing. Symbolically, the body and mind represent the unconscious and conscious polarities of psychological distress.
Lee is married and has three adult children. He enjoys gardening, backpacking and fly fishing. He is a member of the American Counseling Association, NWA Friends of Jung and the CG Jung Society of Colorado.
“I can help you explore the sources of suffering that lead to understanding and acceptance which evolve toward a greater authentically lived life. As your counselor, my goal is to help you uncover repressed, misplaced potential to lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can’t change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life today. By applying complementary therapeutic approaches, we will unearth long-standing negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.”
