Dr. Anat Geva, Psychotherapist
Dr. Geva holds a doctorate in clinical psychology (PsyD) conferred by the University of Denver, a masters in clinical psychology (MA) conferred by the same institution, and a bachelors degree (BA) in Psychology and Communication from Tel-Aviv University in Israel. A member of the American Psychological Association since 2004, and a member of the Colorado Psychological Association since 2008, Dr. Geva values community and collaboration with other health care professionals as well as family law and divorce specialists. Dr. Geva joined “Fourth Saturday” in November of 2014. Along with family law attorneys and mediators, financial planners and other therapists, she educates women on the process of divorce, focusing on her specialty areas – the emotional and psychological facets of separation and divorce. She also facilitates groups and conducts workshops for The Blue Iris. Dr. Geva is a member of the Colorado Collaborative Divorce Professionals (CCDP) and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP). Dr. Geva is committed to finding ways that will be helpful to you on your journey from loss to growth. She is a big believer in “the large picture” – looking at what is most important and working on letting go of the rest. As we move closer to our goals, if we encounter particularly difficult stumbling blocks, we look into the past to understand why it is that they are struggling. This, in turn, informs how we come up with workable solutions. Dr. Geva enjoys public speaking and conducting workshops. Some of the topics that she has recently presented on are Mindfulness at Work and in Life, Renewal & Empowerment, mate selection (“Don’t Bite The Hook” workshop), Attitudes at Work and at Home, and Divorce Grief. Since her internship, Dr. Geva has been passionate about groups, and is able to put that energy into play in the realm of divorce as well as training the new generation of therapists. She currently facilitates a Women’s Divorce Support Group in partnership with The Blue Iris, and supervises doctoral students from the University of Denver’s Graduate School of Professional Psychology, both feeding her mind and soul. When not working, Dr. Geva enjoys spending most of her time with her family and friends. Aside from reading, cooking, hiking and watching movies, Dr. Geva enjoys roller skating, crafting with recycled material (upcycling) & NPR. Her favorite TV show is Game of Thrones, and she is currently reading The Untethered Soul (by Michael Singer) and The Texture Of Treatment, On The Matter of Psychoanalytic Technique (by Herbert Schlesinger). Dr. Geva is fluent in both English and Hebrew, and conducts therapy in both languages (although not at the same time).
