About Amanda Turecek, LMFT, LAC, EMDR CIT

Executive Director & Founder

Are you feeling overwhelmed and anxious? Stuck in a spiral that feels never-ending, making it hard to breathe, focus, or sleep? Anxiety can feel like a constant weight on your shoulders, robbing you of joy and peace, and making it difficult to enjoy the things you love. Trauma can leave you feeling frozen in time, reliving painful memories, and struggling to move forward no matter how hard you try. At RAFT Counseling, we understand the profound impact these struggles can have on your life. If you’re facing these hurdles, we’re here to provide compassionate support and empowering therapy services. 

About Services

When you step into RAFT Counseling, you will find a safe, inclusive space where your voice is heard and your experiences are valued. Our caring and compassionate therapists are here to guide you through your journey with empathy and expertise. My journey began from a deep-rooted desire to support others in their healing and personal development. Embracing a strengths-based approach, I value authenticity and transparency, helping clients build a strong foundation for growth. I like to combine practical strategies with processing of past events, maximizing client progress toward goals in EMDR therapy intensives. I focus on the following areas:

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Trauma Processing
  • Anxiety
  • EMDR for Sports Performance and Performance Enhancement
Expertise and Community Involvement

In addition to my role at RAFT Counseling, I have served in various leadership positions in the mental health field. I serve on the board of directors for Teaching Humane Existence (THE). , a nonprofit organization providing community-based sex offense-specific treatment, promoting accountability, and supporting community safety. And from 2018-2023, I worked with the Specialized Alternatives for Families and Youth (SAFY) mobile crisis team, offering extensive crisis support experience across multiple counties in the Denver area. In emergencies, the SAFY mobile crisis team can be reached through the Colorado Crisis Line.

At RAFT Counseling, we are also proud to provide an amazing space for therapists to grow and thrive. Through our internship program and  training opportunities, we create a supportive environment for students and pre-licensed therapists to develop professionally. We offer clinical supervision as well as EMDR Consultation for therapists who are pursuing EMDR Certification. At RAFT Counseling, we believe in fostering a collaborative and learning-oriented atmosphere, allowing therapists to gain hands-on experience and refine their skills under the guidance of experienced supervisors. If you are a pre-licensed therapist seeking an enriching and educational environment to enhance your clinical practice, we invite you to explore our internship program and training opportunities at RAFT Counseling. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of individuals, couples, and families.

I specialize exclusively in EMDR therapy Intensive for adults and teenagers and am accepting new clients for EMDR Intensives.
