I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Colorado. You can view my current licensure status here and search for me by name or license number LCSW 844. I work in Denver as a psychotherapist, coach and workshop facilitator and graduated from Arizona State University with a Master’s Degree in Social Work in 2000.
With over 30 years of experience serving as a therapist to children, adolescents and adults, I work from an integrative perspective and rely on a broad range of techniques including psychodynamic, transpersonal, somatic experiencing and family systems interventions. I often integrate traditional therapeutic approaches with coaching techniques depending on your unique needs and goals. As a serious student of shamanism for more than 18 years, I combine these contemporary methods with ancient indigenous wisdom to support a connection to your heart, your inner wisdom, and your personal power.
I have a unique ability to support your natural healing process and bring compassion, mindfulness and humor into my work.
My skills and expertise create the container of our collaborative relationship; you bring self-knowledge, the ability to learn from your life experiences, and a vision of what you want your life to be.
Genie has helped me change my thought patterns, working to release fears and build self compassion. I have been able to navigate my way through tricky family waters, stopping walking down one-sided relationship paths and get on track with a career that accentuates my natural abilities. It isn’t easy and sometimes it is scary, but working on me with someone who is compassionate and clear has been the best journey I have embarked on.
Compassionate, intelligent, warm, insightful: Genie Hobbs is all these things. Through our therapy sessions, Genie has gently guided me through some crises, including major life transitions, as well as helped me to ground and grow in times of less personal upheaval. I was and continue to be exceedingly grateful for her professionalism and wisdom.
I can honestly say my life has taken a 180-degree turn for the better since I began working with Genie. She has aided me in achieving self-growth, confidence in my life and the decisions I make, and has helped me break unhealthy patterns I wasn’t even aware of. I would recommend Genie to anyone, no matter your age or where you are in your life, it is a decision you will never regret.
I was referred to Genie through a good friend over two years ago. During this time, I was going through significant life changes. Since then, I schedule regular time to share life moments and, through our exchange, decide on the best path forward.
Genie provides a safe space to be honest and true to my feelings. In her very thoughtful and gentle way, she challenges me to uncover what is really getting at me in the moment. She is an engaged listener and provides a wonderful and unique perspective drawing from her fascinating background. This provides needed context to my challenges and helps put things in perspective.
At the end of each time together, I feel “lighter” and leave with clear thoughts on how to grow and appreciate my life. I have referred my friends to Genie and will continue to do so!
