Welcome to Integrated Therapies, my name is Liza Skaggs and I'm a psychotherapist here in northern Colorado. I am so happy that you made it to this web page and hopefully I can shed some light on the whole therapy process and if I might be the right therapist for you. The choice to take the first step and reach out to a therapist can either feel like you are finally empowering yourself, grabbing for a lifeline, or for some, admitting they can't power through and "make it go away" on their own; no matter the reason it is a step by step journey and one that is sacred.
There are thousands of therapists in practice today that you can pick from, with unknown letters behind their names, and impressive schooling making it at best difficult to know who is a good fit for you and exasperating at it’s worst possibly making you want to throw in the towel. Therapists, to be honest, don’t actually know themselves what makes that “perfect” fit, that instant rapport or connection as it is as individual as you are and as complex as the wounds you bring with you. The connection you make and the feeling that this is the person who can walk through both the lighter times and the nightmare times are in the end what makes therapy work, and it is only found through that first step in reaching out.
My practice is focused on helping you find the wounds that have been stopping you be it issues from your family of origin, depression, trauma, and so forth and healing them from the base up allowing you to create the person and life you always dreamt of achieving. I believe that everyone has the right to a life that they have created and that brings them the happiness and fulfillment they need and want and it has been the greatest and most sacred honor to have been a part of all my client’s stories to wellness. I commend you for taking this first step, be it with me or with another therapist towards finding the answers or wellness you are desiring as I know that it is definitely the hardest one. Please feel free to go through my site, learn more about me and my practice and if you have any questions or wish to set up a time to chat in person please don’t hesitate to use the chat box or email functions. I wish you well and hope to talk with you soon.
