"The name 'Trail Ridge Counseling' comes from a time when I was making a major life decision. I could not come to a clear decision on which option I would choose, so late that night I headed up to a cloudy Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park in search of an answer. I was walking a path near a parking area and could not see where I was going due to the dense fog. My eyes were drawn to the barely visible path immediately before me, but I kept walking. In the darkness of that night, the answer to my question became clear. God was not going to show me exactly where I was heading, rather He would reveal to me only the next few steps on my journey." -Brian
Brian Boehm, MA, LPC, LAC
“One time I was driving and saw a big rock in the middle of the road. I swerved, and upon passing the rock, realized it was a very slow, but huge snapping turtle. I immediately pulled over the car, jumped out, held up traffic, picked up the enormous turtle and walked him over to a place a safety. The entire time, the turtle was trying to bite and claw me, not knowing I was there to help get him back to much needed water. I see many parallels between that experience and helping people through counseling. God has gifted me with the ability to see what changes need to be made in order to have a safer, more peaceful environment. I enjoy helping people discover what changes need to be made and work hard to help them make those changes in their lives.”
