I'm Sasha Raskin, a Licensed Professional Counselor, and I can help you create a sustainable positive change, so that your relationship can become better than it ever was. I provide couples therapy , couples intensives, and family therapy in Boulder, Colorado or via video online counseling, drawing from over ten years of clinical experience. I'm so passionate about the incredible changes that counseling can create, that besides my work with clients, during the last few years I've also been training the next generation of psychotherapists as an Adjunct Faculty at Naropa University.
My combination of training at the Doctoral program in Marriage and Family Therapy at Argosy University (coursework), PhD in progress in Counseling Education and Supervision at Lindsey Wilson College, Contemplative Counseling Master's program at Naropa University, Marriage and Family training at the Denver Family Institute, Gottman Couples Therapy training, Emotional Focused Couples Therapy training, Coaching programs at Adler Institute and with Tony Robbins, and more, allow me to help you feel good again about the people in your life!
And most importantly, together we will work on creating actual positive changes, beyond just a temporary relief from talking about it!
I specialize in the following areas:
Do you feel that your relationship is going downhill?
Are you stuck in the same arguments that never end?
Do you miss the good old days of the beginning of your relationship?
You will learn new ways of soothing each other and responding to each other’s needs. You will practice proven ways of communication that are respectful and clear. You will learn how to move through disagreements, really listen to what the other is saying, and know that you have been heard. We will pinpoint destructive narratives, and build positive narratives of relationship. Feeling understood and cared for is a vital part of our work together.
I get it. You’re stuck. You’re really worried about your relationship and thinking about couples therapy, but afraid that months of couples therapy once a week might be too slow for you. You’re also busy and navigating scheduling every week is difficult.
One great solution is a weekend couples intensive retreat, where we do together deep work for 10 hours, over the course of 3 days. This is an accelerated program that will take you on a journey of self and mutual discovery, in order to truly understand the core of the problems in your relationship. We will work on resolving the relationship problems in real time in couples therapy during the weekend.
Have you been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD? Are you undiagnosed, but suspect you might have ADD/ADHD?
Is your life in a holding pattern because of your trouble with focus, time management, and task completion?
Confusion, shame, loneliness and enormous frustration can develop from feeling like you can’t do what’s expected of you - or accomplish what you want so badly to accomplish - while others seem to be hitting milestones, promotions, and wracking up degrees. Every person with ADD/ADHD is unique, and has unique gifts because of their ADD/ADHD. Don’t suffer from it anymore- thrive with it! I’d love to show you how.
Do you feel like your family life is a constant struggle?
Are you stressed and worried about one or more of your family members?
Working together in family therapy, we get underneath the surface behaviors. We find points of common interest to shift family members into a place of curiosity. From here we can go deeper into the problems as they manifest in your family, and explore the difficult issues that form the barriers preventing trust and understanding. We learn how to communicate effectively as a family unit, to state and meet each other’s needs, create healthy boundaries, promote trust and go beyond the fears creating the barriers that create disconnection among family members
Do you need an environment where your difficulties will be honored and accepted, and at the same time, you will be creating real changes?
You will find more emotional stability, learn new tools to bring into relationships, and increase your ability to thrive through the ups and downs of life.
Many clients learn to love themselves in a new way and experience this through increased self esteem, self acceptance, and improved relationships with others.
Live your life with less reactivity, experience more peace, and engage with the world with more confidence, happiness and balance.
Our work will help you live your life according to your true values and priorities which can help break through difficult thought patterns and confusion.
This is how we work together: We explore the past with a direct focus on how we can make changes in the present. Together we learn how your mind, emotions, feelings, and body work together, allowing us to practice new ways of being in the world. I utilize research-based methods and practices including mindfulness-based techniques, cognitive-behavioral modalities, psycho-education, and strengths-based therapy that allow you to engage new belief structures, thought patterns, and behaviors.
