Something’s happened and you feel stuck. You don’t have the same confidence, vitality, or sense of purpose you used to. You might even be questioning your very identity. Maybe it was a recent traumatic experience, loss, or big life change. Or maybe it was something that happened years or even decades ago that you think is contributing to your current challenges. Maybe you just don’t know why you’re feeling that way. Whatever the cause, you haven’t given up hope. How do I know? Because you’re here visiting my site. You haven’t given up on living the life you want; the life you deserve. 

Traumas, losses, and big changes, no matter when they happened and no matter what they may seem like to others, can leave us feeling powerless, afraid, and overwhelmed. These feelings don’t mean that you’re weak or broken. You can reclaim your personal power. You can turn post-traumatic distress into post-traumatic success. And you don’t have to walk that journey alone. I’m here to walk with you. 

Hi, I’m Dave Wyner. I’m a counselor and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, and A Path Forward is my counseling practice in Louisville, Colorado. I offer office-based and equine-assisted counseling for adults of all ages. Based on my training and on the twists and turns of my own life path, I can help when you’re struggling with:

  • learning to thrive after a traumatic experience 

  • grieving a significant loss (a beloved human or pet, a relationship, vitality, or health to name just a few)

  • living as fully as possible with a chronic or acute medical condition

  • adapting to big career or life changes 

  • facing the challenges and demands of parenting a traumatized child (biological, foster, or adopted)

Please look around my site and feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a 30-minute no-cost phone meeting to see if I’m a good fit for your needs.
