Michael D. Misgen, MA

Licensed Professional Counselor

Let me help you create the life that you dream of by emailing me at mike@relationalhealing.org or calling me at 303.974.0653.

Practice Philosophy:

I work to acknowledge and strengthen the places that are already healthy in your lives, then "laser in” on the places where you are unhappy, stuck and struggling.  We then craft specific goals that make sense to you, and give you the tools to build the relationships of your dreams. I listen as if I were your best friend and help as if I were your best teacher.


The skills I teach are designed to help grow yourself up and also grow strong in your relationships, including:

  • knowing and understanding yourself
  • taking good care of yourself
  • cherishing ALL of yourself
  • healthy boundaries to protect yourself and others
  • full respect living, towards yourself and everyone else
  • listening and speaking relationally
  • digging out of ANY hole you’re in and STAYING OUT


Education and Training:

I received my Master’s Degree in Contempletive Psychotherapy from The Naropa University in 1988. In addition to my academic training, I have also completed an intensive training program in Relational Empowerment Therapy with Terrence Real, LCSW, of the Relational Life Institute. Further training includes the three year “Master Class” with Hedy Schleifer, MA, in the study of “Encounter-centered Couples Therapy."


Professional Experience:

Since graduation, I have subsequently worked in community mental health with adults, children and families with the Mental Health Center of Denver and the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless. In 2004, I joined Denver's Samaritan Counseling Center, which subsequently became Centus Counseling, Consulting and Education, working with individuals and particularly couples. I joined the Relationship Resource Center as an affiliate in 2005, furthering my work with individuals and couples. In 2014 I left RRC to co-found the Denver Center for Relational Healing with my wife and partner, Judith Spendelow.
