Dr. Anne Perry, Psy.D. (she/her/hers)

I have a very collaborative and interpersonal style and consider the work of therapy as a journey to walk alongside you. I believe the purpose of therapy is to enhance your internal wisdom so you can operate in a more full and authentic fashion, and to help focus on making satisfying and meaningful choices. I work from an attachment-based lens informed by internal family systems and AEDP, and I also use EMDR to address trauma. 

I have been trained in mindfulness based empirically supported interventions as well, an interweave this into treatment to enhance personal coping tools.  I specialize in PTSD, Anxiety, Relationship Issues, Perinatal or Postpartum Issues, Adjustment to Parenthood, Pregnancy Loss, Grief, Depression, Bipolar Disorder and Infertility Issues.

The healing process of therapy can result in an increase in self-esteem, an improved outlook, a greater sense of control or calmness, decreased pain and better self understanding. 

I received my Bachelors Degree in Psychology and Sociology from Vanderbilt University, my Masters Degree in General Psychology from Boston University and my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Pacific University in Oregon.  I completed my predoctoral internship at the Loma Linda University Behavioral Medicine Center and my postdoc at the Kaiser Permanente Chronic Pain Management Program in San Francisco. I see individuals 18+.

Donalee Brown has recently moved back to Colorado from the east coast. She is a Professor Emerita from the department of Psychology and Counseling at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, New Jersey where she was the director of the CACREP accredited Clinical Mental Health Counseling Masters Program.

Dr. Brown was very active within the University community serving her department, college and the university.

Dr. Brown was honored to be part of the faculty for the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program and particularly enjoyed helping students navigate their first clinical experiences through practicum and internship.

Dr. Brown’s clinical work has predominantly been in the area of trauma treatment and forensic psychology, but also includes extensive work with chemical addiction and adults and children in crisis. Her most recent clinical focus was with adult survivors of incest and for a church community integrating an inclusion of spirituality.

On a personal note, a return to Colorado is a lifelong dream and Dr. Brown is thrilled to be here and to combine the skills she has honed in the academic arena with clinical work. It is a privilege to be working with Focus Upward, LLC and to be part of a growing practice meeting the mental health needs of a wide community.

Katharine Thompson, LCSW (she/her/hers)

I focus my work on recognizing the strengths you inherently possess and meeting you where you are throughout the therapeutic process.  I use a warm, upbeat and accepting approach to put my clients at ease while we learn to sit with and move through whatever may have brought you into the therapy room. It is my goal to work together with you to create a life that has value and meaning. I recognize the importance of creating a familiar, comfortable relationship when establishing a therapeutic relationship, which is why I always prioritize building a connection and trust first.

I provide individual therapy rooted in mindfulness and a client centered approach. I recognize your inner expertise and we will work towards your goals at a pace that feels comfortable to you. I have an eclectic approach, pulling from numerous modalities including Internal Family Systems, Mindfulness, ACT and EMDR based on the needs of my clients at the moment. 

I have worked with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma and substance abuse. I am passionate about working with LGBGTQ-IA individuals, women, and young adults (18+). I received my Bachelors degree in Social Work from Salisbury University and my Masters in Social Work from University of Maryland Baltimore. However, I consider myself a lifelong learner and will often incorporate what I am learning into our sessions if it is applicable. 

If you are interested in working together please feel free to contact me for a complimentary 15 minute consultation.
