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 8 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. 

 

Stephanie Haviland

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.

Clinical Staff

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.”

Barbara C. Myers

Associate of Wholehearted Counseling
No one dimension of our lives is separate from the other;  mind, body, spirit – work, home and social are all interconnected.  They are all part of the WHOLE that represents us as an individual person.  As a psychotherapist or life coach, my commitment is to help others heal from the grief, pain, disappointments, and impacts of life with the depression and anxiety that often ensues and to help them create their own solid foundation and vision of wholeness.  We can and do recover from our own mistakes, our griefs, and the sometimes harsh actions of others toward us. It’s a worthy journey to heal the broken places and emerge whole.
