Professional statement

Anna Mayer is a Licensed Professional Counselor based in Lafayette, CO, who works with adults and couples with a focus on relationships and sexuality. Many of her clients have found great success in other areas of their lives, like their careers, but struggle to feel connected in their relationships or at peace in their daily lives. Anna is particularly sensitive to clients facing moments of transition in their relationships, such as those recovering from infidelity, healing through a breakup, navigating a shift from monogamy to Ethical Non-Monogamy, or exploring a change in sexual orientation.

Anna’s approach is rooted in Somatic Counseling Psychology, a body-based approach that incorporates our whole self, including body, mind, and emotion. It is a mindfulness-based approach that focuses on helping clients understand how their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are connected to their visceral sensations, and how to work with our often involuntary responses from the bottom up to support long-term changes. She works to help clients understand their physical response to external stressors, and begin to problem-solve ways to introduce moments of embodied choice, to choose to respond rather than react in the face of challenge.

Anna is focused on ensuring that her clients see real progress: her style is interactive, non-judgmental, and practical. A trauma-informed therapist, Anna is sensitive to the influence of past experiences on present challenges, and works closely with clients to cultivate safety in the present moment and to process trauma in a way that increases self-confidence and compassion.

Anna’s first priority in starting with a new client is ensuring that they feel safe, heard, and like an equal partner in the therapeutic process. As a seasoned telehealth provider, she offers the convenience of remote sessions to help make therapy a core component of your self-care calendar.


Message to clients

I believe that you are already whole. This doesn't mean that you can't want change, or that you need to keep doing the things (or thinking the thoughts) that aren't working for you – on the contrary, I believe we are all built for growth and healing. You may be craving changes, or might be feeling like you're stuck in outdated ways of feeling and being. That's a great place to be (even though I know it can be distressing) because it means you're ready to do something differently. And that's a very wise, healthy impulse.

I see my job as helping you embody who you want to be and live a life that feels aligned for you. I specialize in relationships and sexuality because those are my passions, and I'm good at it, but my work definitely isn't limited to talking about sex, or only your most intimate relationships. I believe that it is all interconnected, so if anxiety, depression or trauma are limiting your ability to be intimate with yourself or people you care about, then we'll focus on that and work to shift those obstacles. I also have many clients who come to me because they want a general therapist who is embodied, somatically and mindfully oriented AND is comfortable and skilled enough to talk about sex if and when it comes up.

Whatever your reasons for seeking therapy, please feel free to reach out – I'll look forward to talking with you!
