People House is committed to creating a better world through the growth and development of each individual. People House is a non-profit, non-sectarian personal and spiritual growth center which has a successful 35 year history of responding to the community's needs for personal education, healing and growth through a variety of healing arts.
Our purpose is to enrich people's lives through educational programs and personal and spiritual growth. The populations we serve are people in crisis, life transition, or other stress, and those who are motivated to grow psychologically, mentally and spiritually. We focus on those able to take responsibility for themselves and their actions in order to change their lives for the better. Our perspective is holistic, starting with the premise that the development and integration of mind, body, and spirit is necessary to become healthy, fulfilled, and productive. We believe in an all-inclusive unity inherent in every being.
We offer affordable, holistic counseling to those who might otherwise be unable to experience the transformative power and support of professional counseling. The counseling interns who staff our programs are master's degree level students or graduates acquiring experience for professional licensure with the State of Colorado. They are carefully selected based on life experience and personal development to ensure the highest quality for our clients. Our supervisory staff, Paul Zweig MD and Lori Ohlson MA, LPC together have over 50 years of experience for guiding interns in a rich atmosphere of learning and support.
Lori Ohlson is Director of the Program and you may contact her with questions, 303-525-3038.

Counseling Interns at People House
I seek to understand others by listening to their stories in a way that provides them with a sense of self-acceptance, value and universality. Deep listening allows one to live authentically, find their true self and follow their inner wisdom. I believe each of us has all we need to find our way in life and my mission is to create space that frees us to hear ourselves speak. I have studied spirituality and care at Iliff School of Theology and I am completing my MA Counseling Psychology degree at the University of Denver.

Emotional distress, negative thought patterns, addictive behaviors, and other conditions that cause you suffering determine what you believe about who you are. However, as a Transpersonal Psychotherapist, I believe those conditions cover up – rather than define – who you truly are. My style of psychotherapy encourages a balanced integration of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of wellbeing. My knowledge and experience as a Hakomi student, YogaTeacher, Addiction Counselor, Body-Mind Integration Specialist, and M.A.Transpersonal Counseling Psychology candidate at Naropa University helps us create optimal conditions to safely, mindfully and deeply explore your innate capacity for self-healing and radical transformation.

With increased awareness, change becomes possible, even inevitable. My goal is to provide a safe and empathic environment that will encourage and support you as you explore interpersonal conflicts, traumatic and important events, and relationships with others. I join with my clients to help understand and process these realities. Our time together will be a collaborative and supportive process focusing on personal awareness and the possibility of new choices.

We all contain the inner wisdom to heal ourselves and move towards being an authentic, positive and loving person. Sometimes we need assistance in revealing our truth. The courage to be vulnerable – by moving toward our pain and confusion as well as our joy – utterly transforms and frees us. I am honored to enter into the sacred space of therapy together with my clients. I use an integrative and strength based approach combining empathy, mindfulness and radical acceptance as well as therapeutic tools like imagery, meditation and body awareness. I have a passionate social justice orientation and am experienced in a wide breadth of issues.

I believe humans, as exceptional beings, deserve a life of well-being. However, we are challenged by many life stressors. Authentic psychotherapy provides the chance for both the client and the therapist to grow together. Our growth facilitates endurance; unfolding our well-being from within.We are wounded, yet we have the inner capacity to heal. Healing is a process that needs empathic support; modeling a healthy environment. My passion as an intern in counseling is to offer this support and this environment. I am enthused to travel this journey of healing and growth with my clients.

There are no "coincidences" in life. If you are reading this now, healing is your heart prayer. My therapeutic goal is to help you identify the beliefs which limit you from experiencing the fullness of your life. We will take a journey together to discover what is working in your life and what isn't. We will also explore any limiting beliefs you may be holding. You will learn that the stories we sometimes believe don't always serve our higher purpose. A little bit of willingness is all that is needed as you begin walking the path toward living your truth.

"Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen" – Brene Brown. When we acknowledge our true feelings, including the painful ones, we begin to cultivate the feelings of self-acceptance and worthiness that are necessary to live authentic and "wholehearted" lives. I offer a safe and supportive therapeutic environment for you to engage in this process – exploring your thoughts and feelings, deepening self-awareness, and developing strategies for reaching your goals. I take a holistic approach to wellness, incorporating EMDR and mindfulness into our sessions when appropriate. I am completing my MA in Counseling at Regis University.
