Our Practice  

Family Therapy

Parents often tell us traditional psychotherapeutic approaches have not been effective with their severely attachment-disordered children, who lack the trust and ability to form a working alliance basic to success in therapy. Our family-systems approach and use of Corrective Attachment Therapy focus on assessing and changing relationship patterns and creating positive change within families.


Adult & Couples Therapy

Though there are many similarities in the human experience, we all have unique qualities and problems. In our work with adults, we assist individuals and couples to become aware of past losses, incompletions and repetitive destructive patterns in their lives. We then provide opportunities to integrate and heal these roadblocks to growth and happiness.

Counseling Services

For more than 30 years, our practice has provided outpatient therapy to the people of Evergreen and surrounding Colorado communities. Our team offers outpatient therapy in individual and group settings.

Our services help adults, couples, children and families. We are experts in treating substance abuse, trauma, school issues, parenting, problem solving, anxiety, depression and family issues — especially in blended families.

Intensive Outpatient Program

World-recognized psychologists Terry Levy and Michael Orlans originally developed this treatment format to provide help for children and families needing specialized services unavailable where they live. For more than 30 years, families and couples have traveled to Evergreen from every region of the United States and from other countries to receive therapy for attachment-related trauma.

Intensive Virtual Programs

For families who are not able to come to our Attachment Treatment & Training Institute in Evergreen, CO, most aspects of the in-person IOP are also available using telehealth tools. The program’s scheduling and format are tailored to individual realities and client needs. Contact info@evergreenpsychotherapycenter.com for more information.
