GET TO KNOW ME
Robbie Watterson MA, LPCC
Hi, I am Robbie, a holistic wilderness therapist here to guide you on your therapeutic journey. Finding my path and rhythm in life took a lot longer than I expected and I never imagined being a therapist. As a kid, I loved animals and wanted to be a veterinarian. All I knew is that I wanted to care for the world and give back in a way that nature cared for me. Lucky for me, I get to bring value to my clients which in turn makes the world a more beautiful place to live in. Exploring the trails of Colorado and Utah with my family, camping, climbing, cooking, dancing, hot springs, jumping in lakes, and game nights are some of my favorite hobbies. I strongly value self and family care that consists of laughter, play, and romantic dates.
Each step you take towards becoming your best self is something to honor. Life can be extremely challenging but if we have assistance and meaningful practices along the way, the journey seems more inviting and more alive. Let's face it, we are constantly changing just like nature changes from season to season. If we become more aware of our changes and give them space for expression, I feel we transition in a way that feels fluid and organic.
Individuals and couples who work with me are seeking a deeper, more meaningful connection with themselves and their partners. I use a blend of Somatic (body-based), Wilderness (nature-based), Internal Family Systems (parts work), and Person-Centered therapies. For couples, I use a blend of The Gottman Method, Terry Real’s Relational Life Therapy, and Attachment-based Counseling. I have found that successful relationships start within yourself and once you begin to find love and acceptance for all parts of yourself, it makes it easier and more enjoyable to be in a relationship with another human being.
Working with a therapist takes a lot of courage, I imagine things have been stressful and challenging for you. Maybe it's a big life transition, anxiety that prevents you from living your life, a pending breakup/divorce, or your career is no longer serving you. Having guidance and support can go such a long way in helping you to get to your destination of what you want most in life. By working with me at Elevated, you will begin building a deeper connection with yourself and the life all around you. I am here to support you and believe you have all that you need within. May this journey together help you remember your truth and bring you the nourishment to keep growing.
