Tara Behr, LPC

Colorado Springs CO
I take a holistic and relational approach to therapy. I believe that our deepest wounds happen in relationships and are, thus, healed in caring relationships. I host a podcast on relationships, love, dreamwork, and trauma. My background is in ecopsychology, Jungian psychology, developmental trauma, EMDR, somatic tracking, and psychedelic integration.
I work with men, women and couples who are experiencing anxiety, depression, and trauma. I've always cared about the immense suffering I've seen in the world and had an inner intuition that it didn't have to be this way. My entire life has been dedicated to the discovery of what supports human flourishing and what prevents it. I graduated from Denver Seminary's Counseling Program in 2017 and have been in private practice for the last three years. I've supported numerous individuals and couples heal from childhood developmental trauma, suicidality, PTSD, eating disorders, addictions, anxiety, depression and painful and traumatizing psychedelic experiences. I have studied Christian mysticism through The Action and Contemplation School, psychedelic-assisted therapy through apprenticeship with my mentor Bruce Sanguin, and ecopsychology through The Animus Valley Institute. I have a background in personal training, wilderness guiding, and vocal performance. In my free time, I am a singer and songwriter. I write poetry and essays on radical feminism, interpersonal phenomenology, animism, Christian mysticism and psychedelic-assisted therapy. Being human at this time can be immensely painful but underneath this pain is our childhood innocence, wonder, joy and gratitude. It is your birthright to be connected to freedom, compassion, self-love, and people who respect, honor and mirror you in your goodness. Therapy is one of the most important journeys you can embark on in your life, it will lead you from a life of fear to a life of love. I look forward to walking alongside you as you recover your authentic self.
