Meet Our Counselors

Sarah Scheid (formerly Sutherland), LPC

Psychotherapist
Owner, Peaks Counseling

Hello and welcome! I’m Sarah Scheid and I am a licensed professional counselor specializing in individual child, adolescent, and adult therapy. I am the owner of Peaks Counseling and I hold over 10 years experience in the field of psychology. I currently serve as the main practitioner at Peaks Counseling and I work with a broad range of clients.  My training includes receiving my Bachelor of Arts degree in Human Development from Metropolitan State University of Denver in 2009 and my Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Heath Counseling in 2011.  My areas of expertise include grief, anger management, depression, anxiety, social/relational problems, play therapy, Autism Spectrum disorders, sensory processing disorders, trauma, and other various mood disorders. I also provides life coaching for adults in areas such as career, personal growth, relational/social growth, and general health/well-being.

I am a humanistic and person-centered therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and eclectic techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I will work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing. I am currently accepting patients Monday-Thursday and accept private pay or Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance member clients.

When I’m not providing counseling services, I’m either traveling, spending time outdoors (skiing, hiking, paddle boarding, you name it), playing/watching sports, snuggling and playing with my pets, and spending time with my husband and 1 year old little girl. I absolutely love Colorado and all the adventures that come with our beautiful state.  I graduated from Cherry Creek High School in 2004 and I am very familiar with the Greenwood Village/ Centennial areas.  I have a huge passion for climbing mountains and even spent summer of 2015 reaching my goal of climbing to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa! I believe with passion and motivation that anything can be accomplished. I hope that through my therapeutic work I can encourage others to achieve their goals and conquer their own personal “peaks!”

Alexis Williams, LPCC, CRC

Psychotherapist

Hello! I’m Alexis Williams and I am a Licensed Professional Provisional Counselor (LPCC) and a Certified Clinical Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC). I hold a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Digital Sports Production and Sociology from Ball State University, as well as my Masters of Science degree in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling from Mercer University. I have extensive experience working with children, adolescents, and their families in a variety of in-patient and out-patient settings.

I specialize in children, teens, and young adults who experience anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, disordered eating, struggles with transitions, sports performance, anger management, friendship/social struggles, and career difficulties. I also specialize in working with children, teens, and adults who have physical disabilities. I believe in using art in the therapeutic space as a way for self-expression, to communicate and process difficult emotions and life circumstances.
In addition to supporting children and teens, I strive to foster communication among the entire family. I provide support and skills to parents to aid in the healthy functioning of their family and truly value helping parents improve their relationship with their child or teen.

I strive to create a nurturing space where my clients feel comfortable being their authentic selves. I do this through CBT-focused and mindfulness-based techniques to support individuals to better achieve their goals and encourage individuals to recognize how their own thinking affects their mood, relationships with others, and behaviors.

Outside of the office I can be found coaching CrossFit and spending time doing anything outside with my rescue dog Jack and my fiance. I have a huge passion for any and all things that have to do with sports, especially football. I have been lucky enough to work numerous Super Bowls and National Championships.
