Hello!

I'm Lesley Fulton, a Clinical Mental Health Graduate Student Intern offering affordable counseling services to Her Time Therapy Clients under the supervision of Julie Noyes, MA LPC NCC and Adams State University professors.

I've chosen to become a counselor to help clients navigate the challenges of life while increasing self-awareness and living more in alignment with their values. I am an empathic partner ready to walk alongside you on your journey to healing.

My Approach to Therapy:

My goal as a counselor is to help others find healing and wholeness within themselves. In my work, I prioritize attention to somatic, embodiment practices that help clients feel safe in their bodies and emotions. 

Within a safe, nurturing space, I encourage each client to embark on a journey of self-discovery and learn tools to engage the body and calm the nervous system. Together, we will work as a team to confront your struggles and find a path to a happier and more authentic life.

 

As a clinical mental health graduate student intern, I am actively learning and practicing the latest interventions in various therapeutic modalities and working under close supervision of a fully licensed counselor. I'm able to offer each of my clients unconditional acceptance, empathy, and a listening ear that puts you and your goals at the center of our time together. 

My Ideal Client: 

I love working with people seeking to develop greater self-trust, overcome adversity, and create the beautiful life they desire. I am incredibly passionate about helping those whom systems of oppression have harmed, especially those who identify as women or LGBTQIA+. 

 

The clients I feel particularly well suited to help include those who are struggling with:

  • Trauma (ie. Religious, Domestic Violence/Intimate Partner Violence, and Childhood Abuse and Neglect)

  • LGBTQ+ Identity Issues

  • Relationship Issues (ie. Attachment, Codependence)

  • Chronic illness (ie. Endometriosis, Autoimmune)

  • Body Image Issues
     

The Concerns I Specialize in Treating:

Counseling for Trauma

Even though trauma can manifest for many reasons and the impact of trauma can influence different aspects of your life—you are not your trauma. Together, we will explore the effects of your past experiences and, with evidence-based approaches tailored to address your specific needs and goals, work towards restoring your sense of safety, empowerment, and resilience.

My Story: 

I’m an avid outdoor enthusiast and wilderness explorer with a particular affinity for alpine summits and wildflower identification—I’ve climbed all 58 Colorado Fourteeners and observed hundreds of wildflower species along the way. In addition to my love of nature, I’m dedicated to my own personal growth and evolution and fostering the same for others.

 

My passions also extend to social and environmental justice, collective liberation, and community building. I served as a board member of Full Circle Restorative Justice for 3 years, functioning as board secretary as well as a restorative justice facilitator, which depended on my passion for social justice and disrupting the punitive criminal justice system. I'm a therapist-in-training who personally identifies as queer and bisexual (she/her) and am excited to dedicate my clinical skills to supporting the LGBTQIA+ community.
