Stacey Bramley Carleton, MA, LPC, TIYT
Hi, I'm Stacey Bramley Carleton, a Psychotherapist and Trauma Informed Yoga Therapist in Denver, CO. I received my Master's in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology from Naropa University and I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Colorado. Transpersonal Counseling Psychology focuses on a holistic view of health and wellness, techniques of mindfulness and awareness, and honors the unique path and journey of each individual. I am a Certified Trauma Informed Yoga Therapist (TIYT) through Sundara Yoga Therapy. Trauma Informed Yoga Therapy uses movement, breath, neurophysiology, and Eastern teachings to support the re-wiring of neural pathways in the brain to help resolve traumatic memories and activate the parasympathetic nervous system, our "rest and digest" system.
I'm trained as an advocate to increase awareness of perinatal mood and anxiety symptoms and the importance of seeking professional and social support, and trained as a therapist dedicated to supporting women, men, and families navigate and heal from symptoms resulting from pregnancy through the first year after giving birth.
As a therapist, trained in trauma-informed approaches and attachment re-patterning experiences, I provide a nurturing and safe framework to support the development of the therapeutic relationship. With a secure foundation, the exploration and practice of practical skills occurs to help individuals regulate in session and outside of session. The therapeutic process unfolds, shifts, and grows over time. The therapeutic relationship serves as an opportunity for a corrective experience.

Also, I held the position of a crisis therapist at the Crisis Stabilization Unit and Crisis Walk-In Center in Westminster, CO through Community Reach Center. Throughout the years, I worked with individuals struggling with addictions, severe and persistent mental illness, developmental trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, relationships, and self identity.
Currently, I'm the Owner and Therapist at Mindful Awakening Counseling & Wellness, a Certified Trauma Informed Yoga Therapist, trained provider for perinatal and postpartum therapy and support for women, and Therapist at Caring Heart Counseling group practice.
When I'm not wearing my therapist hat, I enjoy spending time with my husband, being a momma to our son, and playing with our two dogs; listening to live music; cooking; visiting parks and open spaces; practicing yoga and moving my body; connecting with family and friends; traveling; and enjoying the outdoors.
