Dr. Karen Midyet has over 35 years experience as a psychologist in the field of behavioral change. She received her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from University of Denver in 1983 and her MA in career counseling from Columbia University in 1975.
Her initial work was at the Institute for Motivational Development where she served as Chief Psychologist focusing on helping underachieving students and adults become successful at work and school. Additionally, she served as Director of hospital services where she provided intense treatment for adolescents and young adults struggling with ADHD, depression and anxiety. This experience provided her foundation into how emotions and early family experiences affect performance. She has since served as President of the Motivational Enhancement Center and developed Colorado EPIC (Effective Psychologists in Change). Dr. Midyet has expanded her work to include executive, career, and life coaching where she helps individuals achieve goals by identifying barriers to peak performance.
As an action oriented psychologist, she utilizes a broad range of innovative cutting edge techniques that often include energy psychology and EMDR to help people address their emotional blocks to success. Dr. Midyet's holistic approach provides rapid and powerful change for people seeking to maximize performance and enhance the quality of their life. In 2007 she partnered with Denise Shull, of TraderPsyches, to apply her skills and expertise to teach traders how to manage their emotions, and more importantly, how to address and rapidly resolve the underlying emotional triggers that prevent knowledgeable traders from following their trading plan.
Colorado Senior Counseling was developed to provide assessment, coaching and psychotherapy to older adults who suffer from emotional and medical problems, or who are trying to figure out how they want to spend the rest of their lives.
