Get to Know Me
Hello. My name is Dr. Caroline Scheiber, and I’m a Licensed Clinical Psychologist (PhD) working with young adults and adults in Boulder County, Colorado. I am passionate about guiding individuals through the distress of depression, anxiety, disordered eating habits, loss and grief, the diagnosis of a serious medical condition such as cancer, and divorce and separation.
In therapy, my goal is to offer counseling services which guide you through life's challenges by enhancing self-awareness and introspection. In the process we seek to find a better understanding of your own needs, desires, and fears, as well as the underlying motivations behind your behaviors and habits. I believe that the more you know about yourself, the better you will become at adapting to life's changes. Self-awareness will help you gain mastery over your life, break old habits, and give you the ability to act more intentionally and authentically.
We will work together to understand the underlying psychological processes that are impacting your relationships, joy in life, and fulfillment. Many of the cognitive, spiritual, physical, and emotional problems we face in life are symptoms of unresolved emotional conflicts, sometimes stemming from our upbringing, that we will seek to explore in one-on-one therapy sessions.
We will explore both the parts of you which result in productive and positive contributions in your life, as well as those conflicted aspects that can greatly limit the quality of your interactions with others and your overall well-being. These conflicted aspects might be expressed by disrupted eating, feelings of loneliness and isolation, social awkwardness, frustration, excessive worrying or frantic control, and many more unpleasant behaviors that affect your potential for happiness and personal growth. As well, those parts can be highly limiting in relationships.
It can be a very difficult process to get to know yourself in a world which can make us feel so ashamed of who we are. I care about your well-being and seek to provide you with the tools you need in order to learn how to tackle even the most unbearable circumstances while remaining true to yourself. I combine a strong background in research with a breadth and depth of clinical experiences which I use to facilitate the discovery of your ability to be authentic, at home in your body, and self-aware.
With my specialization in psychological assessment, I bring exceptional attention to detail to my approach to testing. I provide individualized care to each of my assessment cases because my ultimate goal is to arrive at the truth. Each person is complex and unique which is why I never conduct assessments in a vacuum but instead apply a comprehensive approach to testing to honor your individuality and to fully and truly understand your history and capabilities. As an expert in psychometrics and measurement, I understand how psychological tests are developed as well as their strengths and weaknesses which helps me get to the bottom of your psychological or neurocognitive functioning. The goal is to allow you to achieve to your fullest potential and gain the success in life you deserve.
I earned a master’s degree in psychology from New York University in New York and complete my doctorate degree in clinical psychology at the California School of Professional Psychology in conjunction with Yale University. I moved to Denver for my residency at Denver Health Medical Center which was followed by a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford School of Medicine in Palo Alto, California. Throughout my training, I focused on issues pertaining to adults and young adults, and specialized in the treatment of anxiety, depression, disordered eating, cancer care, and other serious medical conditions. I worked as an oncology psychologist at the Colorado Blood Cancer Institute for two years prior to starting my private practice. I am now in full-time private practice and I also have an appointment at the University of Denver as an adjunct professor where I teach doctoral students in the psychology program.
