Don Bissett, LPC
Integrated Medical and Wellness Center
Licensed Professional Counselor (Colorado: LPC-2321)

Overview
My theraputic method is to first listen carefully to gain an understanding of why my patients are now seeking help. In partnership with my patients I can often identify and help them to identify the "rules" that are running their lives. Many of my patients have been told to "just get over it" and feel miserable because they can't. It is a great relief for many patients to have someone who will listen without judgment. I will create an environment in which each patient can grow, learn and change.

At it's best therapy is a process of self-discovery that results in the development of insight into why we do what we do. My belief is that patients are the ones who know themselves the best. That is why I work with the patient to develop goals for therapy, how often to attend and when to terminate.

Whether you choose me or someone else for therapy you've already taken an important step toward getting better. To determine if I'm the right therapist for you, you're welcome to call me for a free 20 minute consultation over the phone or in person.

Brief Background Information: I have over 25 years of experience in providing counseling for individuals, couples and families.
