Ernesto Zepeda, MA

I am a Clinical Doctoral Trainee here at Denver Mental Health Collective and a Doctoral Student at the University of Denver’s Graduate School of Professional Psychology. I have had an extraordinary opportunity working with clients at the University of Denver’s Trauma and Disaster Recovery Clinic as well as other clinical sites across Denver.

I have worked primarily with adolescents but have had experience working with adults from young to middle-aged in the realm of trauma, coping, anxiety, depression. Trauma is work that is important to me and I realize that dealing with it can make someone feel disconnected, alone, and overwhelmed. My goal is to help individuals change that in ways that are meaningful, empowering, and fulfilling.

I consider myself integrative with a great appreciation for Cognitive Behavioral and Psychodynamic approaches. I strongly believe in client-centered work and know that the first step to a successful therapeutic experience comes from an alliance characterized by unconditional positive regard, engagement, and much more.
