Ryan O'Millian, M.A., L.P.C.C

2919 Valmont Rd.
Boulder, Colorado 80301

phone: 720-907-3313

I am committed to working with people who want to get to the root of their emotional distress and life suffering. In-depth psychotherapy helps us to grow our capacity to fully experience all of our feelings. Learning how to put our thoughts and feelings into words helps us get our emotional needs met. Exploring painful experiences is often a very difficult and lonely process. That is why talking with a well-trained psychotherapist can be helpful to facilitate our understanding of why we feel the way we do. Out of this fundamental understanding of ourselves arises authentic forgiveness and compassion.

When we can speak openly and honestly in an atmosphere of radical acceptance, we can discover the inner strength and flexibility needed for deep and lasting change. Please do not hesitate to call me to schedule a free consult to learn more.

phone: 720 363-5793

Throughout 12 years of practice, my goal has been to facilitate self-discovery, healing and growth for individuals, couples, families and larger groups by making them aware of emotional barriers that can prevent them from creating the life they desire.

My specialties include grief and loss due to death or divorce, as well as new parenting issues and post-partum depression.

Change is difficult, yet it can also lead to an incredible journey full of surprises. Often, my clients discover a wealth of information about themselves and their families along the way.

Therapy in the Moment
1518 Main Street

I am a registered psychotherapist specializing in somatic counseling. I work with clients from pre-teens to adults of all ages, individuals, couples and families. We use sensations, body awareness, and movement to work with what is coming up for you. My goal is to always have a curious perspective, helping let go of judgment for any humanly challenges, discomforts, and feelings. Issues can vary from physical symptoms that cause discomfort in daily life to anxiety, body image issues, wanting more happiness, self-growth, depression, social skills, self-esteem, shame, stress, spirituality, motivation, relationships and resistance. Please contact me for a free 30 minute initial meeting to discuss what you are looking for and if you have any questions for me.

Boulder, Colorado 80301

I am a graduate of Naropa University's Contemplative Psychotherapy program specializing in life transitions, addiction, and recovery in all forms.

I believe strongly that all people have the capability to be happy, healthy and feel purpose. Sometimes, however, we may lose sight of the things that have supported us in these pursuits.

I work therapeutically with individuals and couples to help each person reconnect with the areas of their lives that promote the wisdom inherent in each of us. Working in a client-centered, compassionate environment, I feel that it is possible reclaim our proper seats at life's table; more able to accommodate suffering, while also remaining open to life's infinite beauty.

To schedule an appointment, please feel free to email or to call 303-416-7217.

I work with individuals, couples and families, with special interest/expertise in supporting step-families. I'm also fascinated by the intersection between spiritual and emotional wellness. While I work with clients who don't identify as either "spiritual" or "religious," I'm also open to exploring those connections with clients when they find it useful.

Therapy tends to be short-term, focused on goals we agree upon together and revisit often.

A free 30-minute consultation can be arranged, to make sure there's a good fit. You can find "testimonials" on my website, describing a warm, engaging style combined with valuable skills. I offer a sliding fee scale as needed.

My office offers abundant, free and convenient parking with easy access from Longmont, Louisville and other areas of east Boulder County, in addition to Boulder

We must turn and face our demons, and live with them as best we can without destroying ourselves. Psychotherapy provides a space where you can talk freely about anything. My training, personal therapy, and supervision allow me to listen deeply and non-judgmentally. You may be doing most of the talking in this process, but I won't be a blank screen. We will engage together in active, dynamic dialogue. Through this process you will come to learn and understand things about yourself that were previously too painful to accept. This courageous self-knowledge will lead to a more fulfilling life overall.
