Our Mission– “Wholehearted Counseling, LLC strives to help any person improve their overall health and wellness by offering mental health/counseling services specific to the needs of the individual/couple or family to bring about Courage, Compassion, and Connection.”
Allison R. Myers, MA, NCC, LPC
Owner and Lead Therapist
I received my Master’s Degree from the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs and have been practicing in the Colorado Springs area for almost 9 years.
Wholehearted living is a concept that I have adopted not only in the name of my practice but in the way I interact with each client. “It means cultivating courage, compassion, and connection and to think… I am enough… Yes, I’m imperfect, vulnerable and sometimes afraid, but that doesn’t change the truth that I am also brave and worthy of love and belonging” – Brene Brown
I started Wholehearted Counseling because I believe any person deserves the opportunity to work towards feeling whole again. This is a process of returning to yourself through excavation and unlearning and remembering who we are. Living a wholehearted life seems like a complex idea. I think that it means that we, as people, are making the choice to focus on ALL parts of ourselves even if it is just in small ways. Small things matter, therefore we matter as a whole.
Chief Operations Officer (COO)
While I am new to Wholehearted Counseling this last fall, I’m not new to the concept of whole person wellness. I spent most of the last 18 years working as the Office Manager for a local accounting office. I know what it feels like to pour everything into one area of your life and not know how to find work life balance. I found that I hate the way I was living and I would never want someone else to think that is how life was meant to be experienced. Life is so short, and it should be LIVED!
As the COO for Wholehearted Counseling, I see it as my job to not only make sure all the administrative tasks are taken care of, but also that the people are taken care of. That means both our clients and our clinicians. My goal is to find something encouraging in every day and in every situation. I’m so excited to be here and to help further the mission and dreams of Wholehearted Counseling. I’m also responsible for the Therapy Sharks who have started joining sessions at our office. Everybody needs a little love.

I was born in the USSR. I speak 4 languages (Russian, Turkish, Norwegian and English). I graduated with a Psychology degree from EGE University (Izmir, Turkey). I later completed my masters degree in Social Work from Nord University (Bodo, NORWAY). After immigrating to the USA in 2010 I worked in the mental health field for 7 and half years serving various populations struggling with mental health issues. My Master’s degree thesis was about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury. My professional and multicultural background provides me with a platform to offer a unique approach to clients and their issues. A phrase that offers insight into my therapeutic orientation and guides my life is – “Our perspective on issues coming our way will determine if we live an adventurous or miserable life.”

I believe those who seek counseling already have the answers to their questions and problems. They just need help searching for, unearthing, and clarifying those answers. To me, counseling is like mining for a gem. Walking into a cave might not look very promising, but we won’t know the value to be found until we start looking around more closely.
I received my Bachelor’s Degree in History and Elementary Education and my Master’s Degree in Counseling and Human Services. I have been a licensed professional school counselor for eight years and am now a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate with the State of Colorado.
I am an educator at heart who has been in the field for over ten years. I have experience both as a teacher and as a school counselor. I have worked with all ability levels, all aspects of schooling, and age levels from six weeks to 21 years. As a school counselor, I have a deep knowledge of school systems and the dynamics between students, parents, and staff. I also have a wealth of knowledge about 504 plans and crisis support at the school level.
I find using person-centered, eclectic, and transactional analysis theories are my preferred therapeutic modalities. However, please do not seek me out based on my theory; the theory I use depends on specific client needs. I adapt to what works best for each individual client and I am not afraid to utilize unconventional methods. We might make memes, write poetry, take a walk, or play a cowbell if it helps!

Jean Parcher, MA, LPC, Irlen Diagnostician
Part-Time Clinical Staff
I received my Master’s Degree from the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs, specializing in LGBT+ issues, transgender transitions, gender identity counseling, and light sensitivity. I am pursuing a Ph.D. in Counseling Supervision. I am also the owner and founder of Light Soul Transformation, offering counseling and Irlen Diagnostic services for the past ten years.
I help people GET AND KEEP the change they want in life. As a lesbian military veteran, I offer compassionate, non-judgmental assistance to people who desire to grow and live a complete balanced life. I will help identify the root causes of problems and assist with resolution. Equipping people with life skills and tools helps people achieve internal balance, success, and self-discovery. Feeling supported as a whole and unique person is essential for those confronted with the double stigma of mental health issues and marginalized statuses like gender, intersex, LGBT+, and identity issues. I can assist with counseling and letters for treating Gender Dysphoria and related matters.
Irlen Diagnostician: I live with Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome, the official name for Irlen Syndrome. I conduct Light Sensitive Screenings/Diagnostics for Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome, including evaluations, reports, and diagnostic services related to light-sensitivity issues. If you want to know more, please go to Irlen.com.
