What it’s like to work with Paul

People who work with Paul are struck by his genuine compassion and his warm, inviting presence. While he is a gentle and kind soul by nature, Paul’s clients also appreciate his strength and the depth of his knowledge and insight about relationships, life’s complexities, and the human condition. Paul’s clients feel understood on a deep level, and appreciate how he helps them get to the root and the “why” of their experience.

A Note From Paul

“I wholeheartedly believe that joy comes through doing the work to heal, transform, and achieve our unique potential. Without a doubt, good relationships empower this change and give us the freedom to be our authentic selves. I love to support this with both my employees and my clients.

“There’s nothing better than seeing people come into their own—to see them find compassionate clarity about who they are and the courage to move toward their aspirations. Each of us only has one precious life—and it’s never too late to pause and reconsider what is truly essential.

Even after more than 20 years as a therapist, I’m still moved by the power of relationships to help us all heal and grow. It’s also amazing to see so many couples transform their relationship into a haven of safety, true companionship, and solidarity.

“At this point in my career, my greatest fulfillment comes from nurturing and supporting the most amazing team of counselors. Without exception, they are caring to the core and committed to growth, excellence, and authenticity. I love the culture of strength, compassion, and mutual support that we’re continually creating together.”

— Paul Sigafus

Outside of Counseling

Outside of directing the counseling center and providing therapy, Paul loves spending time with his family and friends, reading voraciously (literary fiction, speculative fiction, and anthropology), and spending time in nature. Paul also loves to create beautiful things, and he spends an unreasonable amount of time watching woodworking videos on YouTube to prepare for his next furniture-building project. He’s been joyfully married for almost twenty years, and has two sons in their teens and tweens. Although Paul loves being a fourth generation Coloradan, he also enjoys traveling and learning about other cultures.


Paul Sigafus’ Training

Paul has degrees in both Marriage & Family Therapy and Marriage, Family, and Human Development and has been practicing as a therapist for over 20 years. In addition, he is a Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist & Supervisor and helps train other therapists who are learning this highly effective approach to therapy with couples and individuals.

In his work with individuals, Paul uses his training in AEDP counseling; an approach that focuses on helping people tap into their natural qualities of resilience, strength, compassion, and authenticity.

“Love takes off masks
that we fear we cannot live without
and know we cannot live within.”
James Arthur Baldwin
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.”
Emily Dickinson
