About Suzanne Holmes' Counseling and Psychotherapy experience


Suzanne Holmes is a Licensed Professional Counselor in Boulder, Colorado. She provides counseling services to individual adults and couples who wish to initiate growth and change through self-reflection and conscious choice. She has been a psychotherapist since 1981.

Suzanne’s professional background illustrates her philosophy and belief that the human experience is a lifelong process of personal growth and corresponding professional realignment. She began as a career and life transitions counselor, working with attorneys who were dissatisfied with their life circumstances. As she nurtured a passion for art and film, she became trained in art therapy and began working with a broader group of individuals interested in life changes.

During her doctoral studies, Suzanne shifted her therapeutic emphasis to helping clients address personal concerns and engage in the search for meaning in life. She specializes in working with emotional trauma, and offering EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) in addition to traditional therapy services. Suzanne has received training from Robert McKee, regarded as the world’s premier screenwriting teacher, and now also consults with screenwriters and others in the film community.


Suzanne has been a therapist in academic settings, the federal government, community agencies, and private practice. Currently, in addition to her full-time private practice, she is an adjunct faculty member in the Master’s level counseling programs of two local universities and a clinical supervisor to other counselors.

Suzanne received her B.A in Psychology from Brandeis University, her M.S. in Counseling from Syracuse University, and her Ed. D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Virginia.

An enthusiastic world traveler, Suzanne enjoys photographing the places she explores, and includes some of her work here.
