Michelle Paget, LCSW

Therapist

 

Michelle began her practice as a therapist working with children and parents. It was through this work and her own experiences in pregnancy and motherhood that Michelle felt inspired to support those who are on the journey of parenthood. 

Throughout her 14 years in practice, Michelle became increasingly interested in more integrative and somatic ways of improving wellbeing. She blends the use of yoga with a focus in mindfulness, Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and the brain-body centered technique of  brainspotting that works to heal emotional wounds and trauma from the inside out. Michelle aims to help her clients manage challenges, build greater awareness of thoughts and feelings and improve balance in their everyday lives.

Michelle loves to take an individualized approach to therapy based on the needs of her clients. She sees herself as a guide along a journey where her clients are experts in creating the lives they most want to live.

Michelle is originally from Kansas City but spent fourteen-years in New York City prior to moving to Denver in 2018. She loves spending time with her husband, two children and boston terrier playing outside at city parks and going out for tasty baked goods. She also enjoys exercising through Peloton, hiking around the world and feels most connected to herself through yoga and live music. Michelle is extremely grateful for the opportunity to work alongside other talented therapists at Soul Song Counseling.


Lauren Hugunin

NeuroFeedback Trainer

 

Lauren is currently a second-year graduate student in the Couples and Family Therapy (CFT) Program at the University of Colorado Denver working toward a career as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT).

Her long-term goal is to work as a perinatal therapist helping mothers navigate motherhood, and also use her family systems training to work with mothers and their partners to buffer the stress related to bringing a baby home. Lauren became interested in maternal mental health after her own positive experience of healing during the postpartum period. She seeks to be a therapeutic support for others in the way she was supported herself.

Lauren is originally from Denver, CO, which seems to be quite rare these days! In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her partner, son, and three dogs. She also enjoys practicing yoga and pilates, hiking, traveling, reading, live music, listening to true crime podcasts, and learning about counseling. Lauren is honored to have the opportunity to work as a NeuroFeedback Trainer with Soul Song Counseling and she is excited to see the benefits of NeuroFeedback in our clients.


Alaina Whitney

NeuroFeedback Trainer

Alaina is currently a graduate student pursuing her Master’s degree in Couples and Family Therapy at the University of Colorado Denver.

Alaina’s first career was in the arts before moving into the field of mental health. As an actor, she was innately curious about psychology and human behavior and spent much of her time trying to answer the age-old question, “why do people do the things they do?”

Through her own healing journey, Alaina realized her other interest lied in helping women and children survivors of domestic violence heal from their experiences. Since she loves kids, Alaina’s career goal is to become a trauma-informed therapist for children and their families.

Originally from Michigan, Alaina lived in Los Angeles for seven years prior to moving to Denver in 2019. In her free time, she sings with the Andrew’s Sisters tribute group, and travels to spend time with her long-distance partner. She loves being in nature, practicing yoga, dancing to funk music, and snuggling on the couch with her pooch. Alaina is excited to be a NeuroFeedback Trainer with Soul Song Counseling and have the opportunity to work with amazing clients!
