About Your Therapist

Veronica Tunis, MA, LPC, NCC


Training and Clinical Experience

​While Veronica’s private practice in Lakewood, Rooted in Recovery Counseling and Coaching LLC, has only been providing mental health counseling services to the Denver Metro community for the past couple of years she has been contributing her counseling skills in the mental health field since 2008. Prior to earning a M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at the University of Colorado Denver, she studied psychology and computer science at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas. Veronica spent her undergraduate studies independently studying and researching the cognitive and behavioral components of eating disorders and gender differences related to body image dissatisfaction. She also volunteered her time with campus ministry helping homeless and marginalized individuals get the support and resources they needed to fulfill their basic needs. During her graduate studies Veronica began gaining first hand experience of the need for both quality and ethically sound mental health services while providing therapeutic services at various community mental health agencies in the larger Denver Metro area. She nurtured her passion for counseling while helping children, teens and young adults, and families navigate the challenges of living with severe mental illness and learning healthy coping skills to better manage their emotions, thoughts, and interpersonal relationships.  Her clinical experience in working with individuals struggling with addiction, substance abuse, eating disorders, clinical depression and anxiety, and co-occurring disorders at various levels of care including Residential Treatment, Intensive Out Patient, Partial Hospitalization, Home-based community services, and Court Mandated Treatment have provided Veronica with a greater understanding of the need for treatment approaches that are person-centered, flexible, creative, strength based, and personally meaningful and relevant.  

Veronica continually challenges herself to grow both in her personal and professional life. She believes that her training as a clinician is never ending and she takes advantage of opportunities to learn new methods of counseling and hone her therapeutic skills in order to continually provide her clients with the best care possible and meet them where they are at.  

A few words from Veronica...

Choosing a therapist can feel like an overwhelming process. A simple google search based on zip code or specialty will present you with an abundance of choices. I believe making an informed decision about your counselor and what you need therapeutically is key to having a meaningful experience. Just like a good pair of shoes can get you, comfortably, where you need to go, a therapist that is a good match and fit for you and your needs is key to helping you on your journey. If after browsing my website and getting a sense of me as a clinician you would like to schedule a consultation to see if we would be a good fit call 303-800-3259 or email for a free 30 minute consultation.
