Gwen Dezelske (she/her/hers)- Therapist in CO

LGBTQIA+ Allied Provider

I earned my Bachelors of Applied Science in Psychology from the University of Minnesota-Duluth and my Masters in Social Work from the University of Minnesota. I began my social work career working with individuals diagnosed dementia and their families. I focused my work initially on geriatric social work and enjoyed providing professional and community education on dementia to my community.

I moved to Colorado in 2014 and continued to work primarily with the older adult population, including settings such as a nursing home, an adult day program/homecare/primary care setting, and dialysis clinics. I’ve been treating grief, stress, and adjusting to life with chronic illness for over a decade and now specialize in treating clients with anxiety, grief, and panic. I am specially trained in both anxiety treatment and telehealth.

My approach involves a mix of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness-based techniques.
