Lesley Goth, PsyD.
I received my BA in Psychology from Skidmore College in NY in 1990. During college, I worked closely with eating disorder and substance abuse patients at Silver Hill Psychiatric Hospital in Connecticut.
I received my MA and PsyD in Clinical Psychology at the California School of Professional Psychology (Alliant University) in 1994. After graduate school, I completed my post doctorate hours in a variety of clinical settings including private practice, nursing home, HMO mental health clinic and a school for seriously emotionally disturbed adolescents.
My heart has a special place for those who are battling eating disorders. The desire to be thin, to look a certain way, or the use of food as a coping mechanism, are merely symptoms of much deeper emotional issues. Through group, individual and family counseling, this battle can be won and does not have to plague you for the rest of your life.
Soon after graduate school, I married and took time to raise my family. I also had the opportunity to do biblical counseling through my churches in Chino Hills, CA and Raleigh, NC. I naturally found myself integrating a family systems and psychodynamic model with Christ-centered counseling.
After moving to Colorado in 2004, I returned to my passion for counseling and successfully completed the Colorado state licensing exam (CO State License Number 2910). I am currently certified as an EMDR therapist and have completed the level I training for Gottman’s theory of Couples Counseling. In addition to my passion for those struggling with an eating disorder, I also am dedicated to helping people heal from all types of trauma and find true intimacy and friendship in their relationships. Now in private practice in Westminster, I love working with adolescents and adults with all types of emotional issues. I currently live in Broomfield with my two children.
