Marie-Anne Aebi, MA LPCC

Clinical Therapist and Case Manager
We all are on a live long journey and experience our own unique adventure. On this journey we are faced with challenges and oppetunities for growth. Along the way we need people to walk alongside us and provide us with support.

I was born and raised in Switzerland and had opportunities to experience different cultures through my travels and living abroad at different times. My experiences and journey have formed me and made me how I am today. I received my Master’s degree in Professional Counseling at Liberty University in Lynchburg VA. I have a passion for working with children, adolescents, families, couples, and adults on their healing journey of therapy. I have partnered with people with needs including trauma and abuse, anxiety, depression, Reactive Attachment Disorder, substance abuse, Theraplay, Play Therapy and grief and loss. I have lived and worked cross-culturally and therefore have a special place in my heart for cross-cultural work as well. I am deeply invested in helping people find greater health and hope in their lives. I am grateful to be invited to journey alongside you toward greater wellness.

Here in Colorado I received my Master’s degree from Regis University in counseling, specifically as a marriage and family therapist. My work as a therapist includes working with families, couples, individuals and children, who often benefit in counseling through the use of play therapy. Having a healthy family and marriage takes intentionality, but it’s a worthy endeavor. I would be honored to be part of your journey.

Amme Koehler, BSW

Foster Care Home Supervisor
ammeMy goal is to increase the well-being of all community members through listening, showing support and genuine empathy towards others, and advocating for the improvement of life for individuals, families, and social injustices within our community. I firmly believe that people who experience challenges in life deserve to be shown compassion and kindness because they are human and deserve a chance to succeed. It is important to support others who may need to learn the skills to support to help themselves when dealing with the challenges of life.

After spending my whole life as part of a military family, I have come to realize the incredible struggle families can experience and would like to share the skills of resilience with others. I am a graduate of Salisbury University, class of 2017 with a Bachelor’s in Social Work (BSW). Currently, I work with foster and adoptive homes as the Foster Care Program Manager to manage licensed homes and help families navigate the SAFE Home Study, license, foster and adoption process. It is my pleasure to assist families as they work through the fostering and adoption process as their first line of support on this incredible journey.
