The Catalyst Center is so proud of Dr. Lies van Bekkum and her work with new and expecting parents in the Denver metro area and her individual clients. As our Perinatal Coordinator, Lies is passionate about helping people transition into all the new roles that becoming a parent entails in whatever form that may take. She loves running her weekly virtual Tuesday Therapy Group for New and Expecting Moms. This group provides therapist-led peer support to parents, whether their 1st or 10th baby, helping them with the unique challenges of parenthood. Lies’ group members look forward to this as a space to bring their concerns and worries and know they will receive support and guidance. In addition to facilitating group, Lies works with individuals and couples around parenthood. Outside of her perinatal work, Lies is also a trauma-sensitive therapist trained in EMDR and excels in helping clients struggling with depression, anxiety, and complex identities.

We are lucky to have Lies among a great team of multidisciplinary providers at the Catalyst Center, providing exceptional mental health services utilizing cutting-edge, evidence-based treatments. We take a collaborative, client-centered approach to healing. We offer various evidence-based services, all aimed at trauma healing and recovery. We are dedicated to treating each client respectfully and compassionately. Our office is located in Cherry Creek, but we provide telehealth as well and can provide services for greater Colorado.
