MARSHA EVANSMA, LPC
I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) who has a medical (University of Colorado School of Medicine) and science (University of Colorado at Denver) background that led me into the psychology field. My Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology was earned in 2012 from the University of Denver. I have previously worked with at-risk youth and with diverse populations in private practice representative of all socioeconomic situations. Specific therapeutic strategies/modalities include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT); Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT); Solution Focused-Brief Therapy; and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR). I am very directive and no nonsense in my approach. My style still embodies caring and dedication to your success.
KRISTIN WALTZMS, LPC
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Master of Science in Vocational Rehabilitation Counseling from the Illinois Institute of Technology. My past professional focus has been underserved populations including individuals experiencing homelessness and poverty and those involved with the justice system. With a focus on strength-based practices, I offer individual, couples, and group therapy for relationship issues, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress and substance use disorders. My approach to counseling is to develop a collaborative relationship in which my clients feel safe, encouraged, and empowered to become the best version of themselves they can be. My role is to provide psychoeducation on evidenced-based practices and interventions that promote wellness and recovery while reducing uncomfortable symptoms. My modalities include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT).

I am a graduate of the Regis University Master’s of Counseling program and hold a post-graduate certificate in child and adolescent counseling. Before completing my Master’s degree, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Colorado at Denver. Throughout my career I have worked for both the Mental Health Center of Denver (in adult services) as well as The Third Way Center (a residential program for at risk youth). I believe a positive client-therapist relationship is essential for growth and healing and am passionate about supporting clients in developing awareness, knowledge and skills necessary to live healthy and fulfilling lives. My modalities include Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Existential Therapy. When working with children and families I rely more on Individual Play Therapy and Filial Play Therapy as a means of helping children and adolescents to explore their experiences while strengthening family bonds.

SHERRIE WILLIAMS-ROWEMA, LPC
Before pursuing a career in professional counseling, I worked as a case manager and advocate serving teenage mothers, under-employed young adults and families in crisis for 10 years. I also served as a counselor at The Baraka School, a Kenyan boarding school serving middle school boys from Baltimore City. As a licensed professional counselor, I worked with Traci Berry McGhee for 15 years in private practice in St. Louis, MO and at Imani Therapy, a wellness center for women and girls. There, I provided counseling, would speak at school engagements, and facilitate SistaKeeper Circles and groups, retreats and workshops. The mission was to encourage young women to find their purpose and encompassed Prevention, Intervention and Awareness, focused on the issues that impact women and their communities.
I have experience and provide individual and family treatment for issues including marriage relationships, self-esteem, identity issues, life-transitions, depression, anxiety, and parent-teen relationships. I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and other therapeutic techniques and strongly believes in the concept of ‘ubuntu’ – I am who I am because of who we are. I strive to provide a supportive and trusting environment for each person to make decisions, problem solve and move forward toward professional and personal goals.
