Hi, I’m Eileen Purdy! I’m a registered psychotherapist, author, and speaker in Boulder, Colorado. I’ve been counseling and teaching for over twenty-five years. I am trained in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) and have found variations of them to be extremely successful in helping people overcome anxiety. And I can personally vouch for them.In addition to those approaches, I am influenced by neuroscience, positive psychology, functional nutrition and the practice of self-compassion.
Throughout the years, I’ve worked with children, adolescents, adults, and families, This diversity of experience has led me to a deeper understanding of human behavior and a wide breadth of strategies to overcome anxiety, create mental wellness, improve relationships and develop personal confidence.
When I’m not obsessing over finding ways to help people live great lives and creating pathways for long-lasting change, you can find me running on the mountain trails around my house, trying new Indian recipes, playing in our newly fenced yard with my dog Vega, reading geeky neuroscience journal articles or planning the next overseas adventure with my partner.
