Don Maestas


About Me

Our faith can be the rock that keeps us grounded no matter how many challenges we experience. It reminds us that we are not alone. That we are loved and that we will find our way. That being said, there are moments when it helps to speak with someone. To share what is in our heart. To find understanding and support.

I am a licensed professional counselor in Colorado with over 10 years professional experience helping people. I have successfully worked with Clients to address: Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Grief and Loss, Divorce, Parenting Challenges, Physical and Emotional Trauma, Family Conflict and Communication, Substance Use, etc. I also have a lot of experience working with individuals, couples, and families.

My counseling style is supportive and goal oriented. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. Depending on my clients’ needs, I draw from diverse counseling techniques that can include: Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI), as well as psychodynamic therapy techniques. Every client is unique, so all counseling is individualized to meet their individual strengths and challenges.

At times, we all can find ourselves feeling isolated...alone...without understanding. It can be hard to reach out to someone and seek the support you need. There is hope, though. The support is there for you when you are ready.

I look forward to working with you!

Don is great. He listens well and can get through to the core of what is going on. And oftentimes he will send relevant information, articles or videos that touch more on the subject. Working with Don has helped me with a lot of situations and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a good therapist.

Don is my first counseling experience where I feel he is listening and present every session. He keeps me on track with my goals and thoughtfully responds and draws me back into my purpose when I am fearful and want to regress. I know that with his help I will make life long changes and growth.

Don is very encouraging. He listens actively, and weekly sends me articles, or things to listen to, that encourage further development of the topics were working on. He remembers what we've talked about before, and has good insight. For me, the added benefit is Don's including faith and God; he is comfortable and helpful spiritually, and that helps me.

New to this platform but Don has been great even during my free trial period! I'm looking forward to all that I learn about myself as well as how to improve my every day life and getting to feeling better both physically emotionally spiritually and just overall a better me despite all that I feel and live with daily. I'm excited for this journey and the site has so many options that fit my hectic non 9-5 work schedule. So for that I'm grateful! Don has so far been very open to odd hours and I know he does this not for just a paycheck! He cares for all he deals with. Anyway I feel I found a great thing here with I recommend it for sure!

Don consistently handles our conversations and my questions and with wisdom and patience. I have appreciated his approach to counseling.

Written by B.R. on Apr 09, 2019 after counseling with Don for 2 weeks

I feel that Don listens to what I am saying and he is very quick to respond. It has been very helpful having him respond to things quickly and also I feel he has had so much experience that he can relate to all the things that I bring to the table. He’s also provided me with outside sources and that has been helpful as well. I am very happy with this interaction thus far.

Don takes the time to listen to me as an individual and really cares about solving the problem with simple concepts. Since our lessons, I've grown more confident speaking to my girlfriend, and I've come to control my anxiety more and more. He's a good listener and is open and honest to give you the up front answer. Thanks again for your help during this time.
