“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk to blossom.” -Anais Nin

Welcome to Atacama Counseling! Founded by Rachael Uris, LPC, we are Boulder-based psychotherapy and coaching practice  that helps individuals and couples to live with greater mindfulness, creativity, connection, and empowerment, both in their relationships and in their lives. By healing the wounds and patterns blocking them, our clients find they are able to deepen their relationship to both their partners and themselves. The potential for thriving intimacy is within all of us. Yet, too frequently we lose sight of (or have trouble finding in the first place) this part of our being.


We offer services for a wide array of issues, and specialize in relationships, sexuality, and women’s issues, including pregnancy, abortion, miscarriage, and sexual trauma. We hope this site helps to answer questions you may have about us, the services we offer, and therapy in general. You are welcome to  contact us for additional information, or to set up an initial appointment.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Some Frequently Asked Questions:

Do you accept insurance?

Yes, you can use your insurance to pay for sex therapy and other counseling services; our therapy services are directly covered by Cigna and United insurance networks. If your insurance is with another carrier, you can be reimbursed for therapy services if your plan allows you to see an “out of network” provider. If you would like assistance in finding out if our services are covered under your plan, we are happy to help guide you!


 Do you have evening hours?

Yes, we currently hold evening hours during the week that are available for those unable to attend therapy during the day.


  Do you provide therapy and coaching for other issues not pertaining to relationships and pregnancy?

We have extensive training and experience in helping individuals, couples, and families with a wide array of issues. For an overview of these topics, see our  individual therapy page and our coaching for mindfulness, creativity, and empowerment page.


I don’t live in Boulder. Can I receive services over the phone or via Skype?

You can receive coaching services over the phone or Skype from anywhere in the world. If you live in the state of Colorado, you can have most of your therapy sessions remotely via phone or secure video chat.


How do I pay for sessions?

You can pay with cash, check, or credit card for sessions. You have the options of paying as you go or setting up automatic monthly payments.


Are your services confidential?

Yes, in general, all services are confidential. There are always exceptions mandated by law to confidentiality. Please contact us if you would like more information on these mandates.


What is the difference between therapy and coaching?

Please visit this blog post to see a basic outline of these differences. If you still have questions or are unsure of which is the best fit for you, we can discuss your situation over the phone or in a 50-minute consultation.
