Dan Michels, MA, CHT, LPC

Psychotherapy & Supervision in Boulder, CO


I am a psychotherapist, supervisor, mentor, and coach working in the greater Boulder area. I specialize in working with individuals and couples across a wide variety of issues, including trauma, anxiety, depression and sexuality.

I offer ketamine-assisted psychotherapy, as well as psychedelic integration. I use a wide variety of multiple mindfulness-based techniques that form a holistic approach to mental health, including neuroscience, attachment theory, Hakomi, Gestalt, Somatic Experiencing™, and Internal Family Systems.

My approach to mental health includes the belief that all people have intrinsic sanity and my goal is to collaborate with that sanity to explore the various obstacles that you face in your life and in your relationships. I have always believed in the expression that psychotherapy is “assisted self-discovery.”

I am LGBTQI- and poly-friendly.

If you would like to know more about how I work, please contact me. My first consultation session is free!
