Eve Wesson is a licensed clinical social worker dedicated to working with diverse populations to provide trauma-informed care and offer a healing space to be seen, heard and accepted. Eve received her BA in Psychology from Skidmore College and her Masters in Social Work from Smith College School for Social Work. Eve started at CU Boulder in 2015 completing a two-year post masters fellowship at Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS) providing individual therapy, group therapy, crisis intervention, and behavioral health services. While at CAPS, Eve cemented her love with working with college and graduate students. Eve went on to work as a Victims Advocate Counselor with the Office of Victim Assistance until recently transitioning back to CAPS to join as an Embedded Therapist with the School of Education.
Eve believes therapy is fundamentally about discovering a deeper sense of personal meaning, greater self-understanding, self-empowerment, and self-acceptance. It is a priority for Eve to create a space where all emotions are welcome, valid, and explored. Through her work at OVA and beyond, she is committed to bringing awareness, education and healing to the impacts of trauma, oppression and sexual violence and fighting for social justice and equity. Psychodynamic, Relational, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, mindfulness and Motivational Interviewing are therapy models Eve utilizes for both individual and group work.
Prior to working at CU Boulder, Eve worked at the Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Institute at McLean Hospital, a residential treatment facility where she provided direct clinical care and coached individuals through their activities of daily living. During her graduate work, Eve worked with veterans with chronic mental illness in an outpatient treatment center at a Veteran Affairs Hospital and with at risk adolescents leading psycho-ed processing groups and offering individual therapy for middle and high school students.
