Eric Eichler, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Denver CO
My approach is guided by the belief that therapeutic presence is essential for positive change in therapy, and that change is possible. I have specialized training in psychoanalytic therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, health coaching, and mindfulness. I help my clients uncover the root causes of current problems in order to live lives of purpose and happiness, moment to moment.
Thank you for your interest in my work. I am a licensed psychotherapist with 9 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. My office is located on Capitol Hill at 1155 Sherman St., #311, Denver, CO 80203. 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 work as a full-time psychotherapist at the Rocky Mountain Regional VA Medical Center and I teach group therapy at Metropolitan State University of Denver’s Department of Social Work. 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.
