Eric Eichler, LCSW
I am a licensed psychotherapist with 10 years of experience helping people suffering from conditions like depression, anxiety, loss/grief and PTSD/trauma so that they can live happier, more balanced lives. I received a Master’s in Social Work from Smith College School for Social Work in 2012, and graduated from the UC San Diego/ VA San Diego Interprofessional Fellowship in Psychosocial Rehabilitation in 2013. As a faculty member for the fellowship program and a field instructor for several schools of social work from 2015-18, I provided training in assessment and psychotherapy for psychosis-spectrum disorders and PTSD. In addition to my private practice, I am in formation as a Lacanian analyst at the Clinical College of Colorado, and I provide mental health services at VA Eastern Colorado Healthcare System. Before becoming a therapist, I worked as a wilderness guide, both domestically and internationally. I have been a Buddhist meditation practitioner since 2000, and have received instruction in the Vipassana, Zen, and Vajrayana traditions. I am certified as a Meditation Instructor by Naropa University. I am curious by nature, and I’d love to help you explore your particular individuality and its connection with your life history and desires. Through our work together, you’ll gain new insight and appreciation for who you are as you grow in expressing previously unspoken parts of yourself. I’ll ask a lot of questions in our conversations, but also hold space for you to discover your own thoughts and speak them. It can be difficult to begin a journey of self-discovery. But with the right support, the work finds its rhythm, and improvements can come surprisingly quickly. Please contact me for a free telephone consultation, and we can discuss where we might start our work together.
