Clinical Director & Founder of Trilogy
Chelli Pumphrey, MA, LPC
After 25+ years of experience as a mental health clinician, I realized that the traditional models of psychotherapy were useful, but that using an integrated approach where we focus on mind, body, and spirit, offered the most effective healing for my clients.
This is why I founded Trilogy Holistic Mental Health. I was tired of seeing people being prescribed medication after medication to ease symptoms, often without addressing the root cause. I don’t dispute the power and necessity of western medicine to help us. However, when used without a focus on healing the mind-body connection, it can prevent us from healing the root of our symptoms, which can be caused by trauma, our attachment styles, unhealthy or unfulfilling life circumstances, or imbalance in the body. If we can’t get to the root, we can’t truly heal.
I am also the Clinical Director of Strength in Motion Counseling in Boulder, Colorado. Both locations offer therapists and healers who live and work from a truly integrated, holistic perspective….people who have done their own work so that they can better serve you….people who are deeply compassionate and able to hold the space for you to heal.
On a more personal note… there are many experiences that have contributed to my career as a therapist and guide in your healing. Travel, yoga, meditation, Reiki, spiritual and personal growth are a few of my passions. I have always been a very intuitive person, and use this skill to tune in deeply to the emotions and needs of others. I love working with others who are spiritually curious, empaths, and fellow lightworkers. I have also spent several years working with spiritual teachers and inspirational coaches where I have learned so much about confronting our limiting beliefs and living a fulfilling, purpose-filled life.

Licensed Professional Counselor Certified Holistic Health Coach
Lesley Loftis, MA, LPC, CHHC
I believe we all possess the strength to overcome life’s challenges, but often we need extra guidance, support and new “tools” to get to a more fulfilling place. My goal in therapy and coaching is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space to help clients create new pathways for growth, self-compassion and a better understanding of their life experience.
I work with many therapeutic issues including anxiety, depression, emotional eating, grief, relationship / communication challenges, codependency, women in the prenatal/postnatal phase of life, parenting and trauma. I work with adults (18+) using techniques from IFS (Internal Family Systems), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral), EMDR, Transpersonal and mind-body/mindfulness therapies.
In the fast-paced world we live in, it can be easy to get caught up in overwhelm, stress, confusion or simply feeling stuck. My goal is to empower my clients by helping them move from a place of stuckness and uncertainty to creating space for clarity, freedom and joy. I work with clients by sloooowwwwing things down…slowing down thoughts, emotions, physical experiences and patterns of avoidance to notice what needs to be known, understood and resolved. I frequently employ creative techniques and guided visualization to help clients tap into deeper levels of awareness and insight.
As a health and wellness coach I assist clients in creating more clarity, energy, and vitality in their lives. I strongly believe in the mind-body connection and will work from both of these angles to help my clients find healing. I particularly enjoy working with clients around digestive issues, fatigue, headaches/migraines, weight loss, body image, hormone issues and skin irritations (acne, rashes, etc.). If we want to live our very best life it’s important to be intentional and focused about our choices, and I strive to provide the resources and accountability you need to help facilitate powerful change.

Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate
Emily Olsen, MA, LPCC
My work as a therapist is rooted in the principle that your own body contains an inner wisdom, not only to heal from the trauma and struggles of modern life, but to create your life in the way that you have always wanted. My goal is to help you tune in to your own inner wisdom, to walk beside you as a supportive guide as you navigate your healing path.
My approach to the therapeutic process is individualized, collaborative, and holistic. I am trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (2020), and as a trauma-informed yoga teacher (Yoga Alliance RYT, 2017). I use these tools in session to directly engage unresolved emotions or trauma in the body, allowing them to “move through,” or release, both psychologically and physiologically. I find that this work opens up space for my clients to begin to step beyond old emotional patterns that are no longer serving their needs.
As a therapist, I enjoy working with a wide range of client challenges. My specialty areas include working with trauma-related issues, navigating major life transitions, existential issues, coping with chronic illness, identity exploration, substance abuse & addictions, and integration of spiritual and/or psychedelic experiences. I am an LGBTQIA+ affirming practitioner, and account for the impact that discriminatory societal norms on the basis of race, gender, sexuality, and class have on each individual’s sense of self and overall mental health.
Personally, I have walked my own healing path in recovery from trauma and addiction. It is through my personal recovery that I was able to step into my true purpose, and ultimately my work as a therapist. In the midst of my recovery, I completed many yoga trainings, spent much time in sadhana at my chosen ashram, returned to school for my degree in counseling psychology, and began to facilitate ceremonial group healing spaces in an effort to share this work. My journey opened me to the possibilities of transformation through direct experience and connection. It is my sincere hope to share this possibility with you.

Licensed Addiction Counselor
Kirsten Hartz, MA, LPC, LAC
I see myself as a companion and guide for highly-sensitive, empathic individuals seeking a path to recovery from life’s stressors, trauma, and substance abuse. I help my clients build healthier relationships, improve self-esteem, find freedom from anxiety and depression, and come home to their bodies. I believe in the healing power of embodiment to recover from the hurt you may have experienced. In my work, there is always space for vulnerable moments, profound realizations, uninhibited emotions, and very often, deep belly laughs.
As a fellow traveler along the path, I understand profound loss and trauma. I get that substance abuse and other mental health challenges can take over your life. My clients are smart, empathic, and often highly sensitive folks who are struggling. They’re the ones trying to do it all with barely any energy left to care for themselves. My goal is to help you find new, healthier ways of managing stress and mental health challenges. By using a holistic, client-centered, and tailored approach, I will work with you to treat the underlying causes for substance abuse, including trauma, anxiety, and depression.
As a Licensed Addiction Counselor steeped in Eastern philosophy, I blend practices from the East and West, expression and introspection, movement and stillness. My work is body-centered, which means that you and I will listen closely to your body’s cues for direction. In both my clinical practice and personal life, I align with the Eastern philosophy that our body is our greatest source of wisdom.
If you want to break free from substances, begin a healing journey, or simply improve your overall well being, I’d love to help you get there.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Nancy Newhook, LCSW
Welcome to Trilogy! I am honored to explore your healing journey with you. With around 40 years of experience, I offer compassion, wisdom, and skill as a therapist.
I received my Master’s Degree in 1979 at the University of Louisville in Kentucky, and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Colorado. I’ve had extensive training and experience as a therapist, especially in working with veterans.
I try always to come from the heart and a place of love, compassion, and non-judgment. I am both flexible and grounded in my approach in treating individuals. My style is straight forward and goal oriented, while offering a soft and compassionate role as you heal. I also use mindfulness and a holistic approach to your treatment.
With my clinical experience, I can treat a myriad of mental health issues. However, I specialize in treating trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and have experience delivering a variety of evidence-based treatment approaches with diverse populations. I am certified in Cognitive Processing Therapy and Prolonged Exposure Therapy, which are highly effective models to help decrease symptoms of trauma and PTSD. I also have trainings in mindfulness based interventions. I am also skilled at working with depression, anxiety, and emotional, physical, and sexual abuse, including Military Sexual Trauma.
As part of my own personal routine I practice yoga regularly, meditate, get out on my bicycle and enjoy the mountains. I also value spending time connecting with friends and family and playing with my grand dogs!
Having a balance in our lives will encourage us to have inner healing while helping us to love ourselves and those around us.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Rachel Neff, LCSW
I believe humans are beautifully complex beings with a mind, body, and spirit – to isolate healing to only one of these areas is to significantly limit potential growth. Therefore, as a therapist I seek to create a non-judgmental safe space where you can begin to tap into your inner wisdom by paying attention to your full experience in the present moment.
I use a variety of mindfulness, art-based, and experiential techniques to identify and explore patterns, narratives, and systems that have held you back from living a full, meaningful life.
My approach to therapy is a highly individualized and collaborative process – a supportive honest relationship between therapist and client. I invite curiosity and introspection to listen to the messages your body sends, while also providing a mirror to help you see yourself more clearly. Together, we will work on moving from a place of fear and feeling “stuck” to freedom, creativity, and playfulness.
My specialties include working with trauma, anxiety, depression, life transitions, and relationship dynamics and communication. I have extensive experience in working with adolescents, families, and adults. I am trained in EMDR, and integrate somatic-based skills from this training in all of my work.
I have worked in day-treatment, schools and community mental health which have provided me with experience in treating individuals from diverse communities, identities, and cultural backgrounds. I welcome and validate all identities, specifically the LGBTQ+ community, and I am committed to anti-racism work both in and out of my clinical practice.
In order to show up fully for others, I prioritize my own self-care by reading, practicing yoga and meditation, and dancing (preferably to live music)! I love exploring the Colorado mountains and Southwest desert, cooking new recipes with friends, traveling internationally, and visiting my family across the U.S.

Acupuncture + Herbal Medicine
Keiko Barringer, L.Ac., DIPL. OM
I was first introduced to the healing art of acupuncture when I was thirteen years old. I interned with an acupuncturist at the age of seventeen, which solidified my love for the medicine. After undergraduate school, I attended Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego; I received my Masters in Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2012 and have been in practice ever since. My years of involvement with Chinese medicine have strongly influenced my life and I strive to bring this ideology to all facets of my treatments.
Some of my specialties include mental and emotional issues such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, and chronic stress. I also have extensive experience with treating women’s health, male and female infertility, allergies, diabetes, adrenal fatigue, thyroid issues, acute and chronic pain, auto-immune diseases, and various other chronic illnesses. I use acupuncture, cupping, herbal medicine, nutrition, and other techniques to create holistic, individually-tailored treatments designed to bring the body back into its natural state of harmonious equilibrium – physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapist Reiki Master
Alexi started practicing yoga when she was just twelve years old, following along with videos of Rodney Yee in the living room with her mother. In 2012 she completed her first yoga teacher training, but after six years of teaching she found that there was a deeper layer of work calling to her. This eventually led to Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, where she completed her 600 hour certification in 2018.
Through this process, Alexi discovered how her own body was clinging to past traumas, and impacted every layer of her life. Now her passion is in helping people rediscover their strength and wisdom in the aftermath of grief and trauma. Having experienced both the empowerment and acceptance that comes from embodied processing, she decided to give all her energy to offering this transformation to others.
Outside of yoga and this practice, Alexi loves to hike, is always in the middle of a few books, and relishes a good cup of chai tea.
