Guili Zavaschi is a Licensed Professional Counselor originally from Brazil. He completed his undergraduate studies in Clinical Psychology in South America and earned his Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology in the United States where he has been living since 2008. Upon graduating, Guili worked as a bi-lingual Functional Family therapist serving high conflict families in a community mental health center Boulder County for four years before opening his private
practice in 2015.
He is passionate about supporting and guiding clients in resolving the roots of the issues that hold them back from more vital and wholesome lives. Guili firmly believes that a good psychotherapeutic process should facilitate shifts in awareness creating temporarily modified states of consciousness. This perspective was informed and developed by his two and a half years of work in the Peruvian amazon jungle. In Peru, he worked as a psychotherapist in a rehabilitation center for addictions that combined modern medicine and psychotherapy with ancient shamanic practices. Through this experience he closely accompanied clients in navigating expanded states of consciousness and witnessed and experienced profound and positive changes in their lives.
In order to achieve similar results with his work in the United States, he has had the extraordinary opportunity of collaborating with the Integrative Psychiatry Center and their team. He brings his experience of nearly 20 years actively working as a psychotherapist as well as his training in Gestalt therapy, Mindfulness, Functional Family Therapy and Wilderness therapy to contribute to his clients’ journeys of transformation. Guili is currently in progress with a
certification training in both Somatic Experiencing and MDMA assisted psychotherapy. Guili provides psychotherapy in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
