After noticing a distinct lack of and need for mindfulness based therapies in Colorado, Dr. Parker Wilson founded the Awakened Mind Institute (AMI) in Denver, CO in 2006.Who We Are
All of our therapists share a love for the transformative process of therapy. In the past, all of AMI's therapists have also been "on the couch" as patients themselves, in their own therapeutic processes. They feel that this experience has given them tremendous insight into how therapy can be more effectively delivered to their clients.
Even in the 21st century, many of us still suffer in silence - afraid to reach out to qualified experts - and so slowly our lives and families worsen with inaction and the passage of time.
Imagine how much happier your life would be today if you had been treated by a highly skilled and compassionate addiction counselor a year ago. Please contact us for more information.

The fundamental techniques for developing mindfulness, while rooted in the teachings of Buddhism, are actually more scientific than religious in nature. Buddhist psychology asks one to deeply analyze one's own existential experience. In other words, unlike traditional religious belief systems, Buddhism is not a faith or dogma based system; nor do its practitioners seek special consideration from a higher power, nor do they seek to convert others to their way of thinking. It is, therefore, more akin to a deep philosophy and empirical understanding.
Primarily AMI offers cognitive psychotherapy; in particular Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), which is considered the modern standard of care for many types of depression, anxiety, stress, grief, addiction, and anger management issues.
