Lindsey Dunbar

Graduate Student Intern

Jon headshot.jpg
Lindsey is a graduate student who will complete her master's degree in clinical mental health counseling from University of Phoenix in November 2022. She earned her bachelor’s degree in exercise science from Colorado State University – Pueblo in 2014 and her first master’s degree in public health sciences and worksite wellness from University of Florida in 2016. Shortly after, in early 2017, she began working as a health educator for the Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment (PDPHE) on a grant encompassed around mental health and suicide prevention. Through this work and personal experiences, Lindsey discovered her calling to become a counselor and went back for another master’s degree. During her time on this program at PDPHE, she was able to become a certified Adult and Youth Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) instructor, as well as a suicide prevention Question Persuade Refer (QPR) Gatekeeper instructor. Lindsey also did numerous presentations within both Pueblo school districts to teach adolescents/teens about the importance of talking openly about mental health and how to seek help. She was also one of the original founders of the Suicide Prevention Coalition of Pueblo County, as this topic is very important to her, and she wanted to see this work continue even after her program’s funding ended. Outside of work with PDPHE, Lindsey was a mentor through Miscarriage Matters, Inc., helping women from across the country process, cope, and grieve their pregnancy and/or infant losses. Having gone through five consecutive miscarriages herself, Lindsey became very passionate about this topic, and much of what she went through (combined with her professional experiences in public health) is what led her down the path to counseling. She works from a person-centered/humanistic and strengths-based approach, while combining aspects of cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, and mindfulness practice. She believes there is power in storytelling and first-hand accounts from clients, which is crucial in helping develop a course of individualized treatment that truly resonates with each client. Lindsey is genuine, empathetic, and observant and wants to help clients in a collaborative manner by offering guidance, combined with preferences from the client on how they best heal and manage on their own. Lindsey is passionate about helping those who struggle, specifically, with depression, anxiety, trauma/PTSD, grief/loss, and relationships. She loves to work with and help people of all ages, backgrounds, and with varied experiences. In her spare time, Lindsey loves to be out in nature and especially thrives on hiking, biking, yoga, and running. She also enjoys playing the piano and finds much joy in traveling – from new to old favorite places.

Venice Gallegos, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Jon headshot.jpg
Venice comes to us with 30 years experience working with adults, couples, teenagers and children with expertise in helping people of all sexual orientations through all manner of pain whether affecting concentration, anxiety, difficulty managing daily life, feeling angry and unheard when what you really are is heart-broken or scared, about a few things. Or, feeling lost and unseen, friends or not, we can sometimes feel alone, secretly afraid there’s something wrong with us and don’t know what to do with that. Venice is a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist with years of experience listening and helping people find and do their work on their terms. She works with individuals of all ages, and also provides couples and family therapy. She likes to say that the client leads and she collaborates, grateful to be the working partner for this part of the journey. Further, she offers mind-body practices closely aligned with gratitude work, believing that this work can help quiet the static our repetitive thoughts create, better enabling our clients to do the work they came for. She also has 20 years experience as a sandtray therapist, using this work in a number of different ways, sometimes helping a child or family communicate or seek further services, for example, and sometimes letting sandtray be of more use in other ways, whether a soothing tool or a way to work in silence when needed for adults too. Venice has developed a way to work with couples that goes deep and changes lives. Her people have told her so. She loves this work because very often the parties involved actually learn how to really negotiate through uncomfortable feelings, making all the difference along the way for all involved.
Venice received her Masters in Community Counseling from Adams State and her Bachelors from USC-Colorado. Starting her career at Parkview, working on the mental health floors and Emergency Department, she was schooled in a systems approach to client care that she maintains to this day, identifying that one’s sense of self is formed through the experiences you enjoy or endure and what you say they mean as each of us grow up. Experience has taught her that when the alliance between client/s and therapist is enabled to be built and mutually trusted, the work can often feel lighter, even powerful, definitely different than what the client first feared therapy might be. She looks forward to meeting you.
