Staff:

Robert L Feder, LCSW has over 30 years of experience working in the mental health field.  He is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with a Masters Degree from the University of Denver Graduate School of Social Work (1978).  In 1991 he completed a Certificate in Family Therapy from the University of Denver Graduate School of Social Work.

     Robert has been in private practice for 23 years specializing in individual, marital and family issues with an emphasis on mood disorders and crisis stabilization.  Robert had been active in building the first diversion program in the United States while working for Treatment Alternative to Street Crimes.  He was instrumental in the growth of the community corrections movement in the 1970’s and designed and directed halfway houses for state and federal parolees for Talbert House Inc. in Cincinnati, Ohio.

     Robert later went on to design and direct Synergy in 1978, a long term adolescent drug and alcohol treatment program for the University of Colorado Medical Center’s Addiction and Research Treatment Services.  All of the treatment programs he started, designed and directed are still in existence today. Robert is a member of the National Association of Social Workers.

 

     I enjoy working with older children, adolescents, and their families, helping them solve issues and teaching them how to create an environment for change. I also enjoy working with individuals, adults and seniors and their mood issues, as well as helping couples improve their marriages.  I’m optimistic and believe in my clients’ ability to solve problems.  Sometimes people get stuck along the way and need a new perspective that can facilitate change, or they might need to develop skills and the ability that will assist them to do something different.  In any case, I try to keep things interesting and fun, while being helpful.

 

     I like to tell people I’m in the “better business” {I just try to help things be better}.  I’m a friendly and provocative man, an active therapist who tries to assist people create “small steps toward solutions.”  I believe that by working together we can create change by which the client can learn to take control of her/his life and emotions. I want my clients to work towards not needing me. I Work For You

     I enjoy working with children, adolescents and their families.  I use play therapy when working with children.  As a CFI, I enjoy what I do because I believe I am helping the children and assisting their parents in becoming better parents, as well as helping them to learn how to co-parent after a divorce.  I provide parents with a perspective that will enrich their lives and their children’s lives. 

 

     When working with adults, I try to motivate them to bring about change in their lives and encourage them to reach for their goals.  I work with all my clients as part of a team; I can only help people bring about change in their lives if they want to change.  I work with clients in a warm, relaxing, and friendly atmosphere. When working with recovering substance abusers, I assist them in dealing with the emotions that led them to substance abuse and the emotions and problems which resulted from their substance abuse problem.  One main goal is helping them to stay sober by giving them the support and guidance they need.  I am there to help you through those difficult times in your life.
