Spotlight Article: Ann E. Carlisle, Ph.D.
Rep: Ann E. Carlisle, Psychologist
A seasoned counselor and psychotherapist, I have been in private
practice in Colorado Springs since 1990, following 14 years of prior
work as a psychologist in Houston, Texas and as an intern in San
Francisco, California. What I offer my clients, along with compassion
and wisdom gained from my years of training and experience, is a
safe, private, non-judgmental setting in which they may explore
whatever life issues are of concern to them. Whether desire for
more satisfying relationships, need for a sense of purpose in life,
issues around depression, anxiety, stress, grief and loss, these
(and many others) are all appropriate reasons to consult with a
psychologist such as myself. In addition to my work as a therapist,
I also assist business partners and non-profit boards to develop
skills to work together more effectively. On occasions I plan and
facilitate overnight retreats for private groups. I also enjoy making
personal growth and mental health related talks to various organizations
in the Pikes Peak region.
What may be unique about my practice is the depth of life experience
I bring into my work. A late bloomer, I found my true calling in
my mid-thirties. Prior to that, I spent two years in the Peace Corps
in the Philippines, after which I worked in several different secretarial
and administrative roles within the corporate world. My life has
also been a search for inner peace and truth, exploring different
paths and finding spiritual truth in many forms. As a result of
these experiences, I look for and find the sacredness of spirit
in each individual, regardless of his or her outward appearance
My most-requested service is couples relationship counseling. As
a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist since 1990, I am devoted
to helping couples develop the relationship tools needed to create
a more loving, effective relationship. I have been facilitating
women's personal/professional growth groups for the past twenty
years. In individual therapy, depending on the needs of the client,
I offer inner-directed processes such as Jungian dream work, journaling,
guided imagery, Gestalt, and various approaches to meditation and
relaxation. I often utilize the recently developed "energy
therapy" tools, such as Eye Movement Desensitization (EMDR),
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and various grounding skills to
empower clients to manage life's distressful experiences with greater
Who can benefit most?
(and individuals) desiring more satisfying relationships
struggling with changes and losses in their lives
- Anyone suffering
from depression, anxiety, anger, low self esteem
- People needing
support in negotiating significant life changes or losses
- Women and
men seeking more fulfillment in their lives
ready to transform negative habits into positives
Because psychotherapy can be threatening to the uninitiated, I
am happy to take the time to tell inquiring callers how the therapy
world works, including confidentiality, financial arrangements,
and various methodologies. Persons wishing to find the right therapist
for someone they know or for themselves are welcome to call me directly
for assistance at 719 593-9880. (There are also several telephone
referral services listed in the Yellow Pages.) Many therapists,
including myself, will agree to a complimentary introductory visit
for prospective clients who ask. If I am not the right person, I
will say so and suggest other therapists who may be a better match
for their needs. It is a good idea to interview more than one therapist
to ensure the best match. Additionally, I am always supportive of
businesses and services that I trust by telling my clients about
them whenever appropriate. Please be aware, however, that confidentiality
and ethical concerns prohibit me from giving out any information
about my clients.

The Portland Chapter put on an AWESOME Spring conference May 20-22.
We were welcomed by what Linda Williamson and I determined were
the friendliest people we've run into in quite a while.
The Academy of Leadership-Module 3 "The Power of Relationships"
was one of the best presentations either of us has experienced.
The highlight for me was at the end where the speaker had us write
down our "dream". Linda's dream is to relocate by the
ocean and have enough free time to do the things she loves (tennis,
walking, yoga, belly-dancing (!)); mine is to own a wine-sipping-bistro-cafe-type
thing; Reps then volunteered to describe their dream and anyone
with connections or knowledge about how to help pursue that dream
told "the dreamer" what she could and would do
to help. Linda responded to one rep whose dream it is to have his
own English Pub, with her knowledge about and connection with the
Golden Bee, and committed to help him when the time is right. It
was really quite powerful!!
Think of the relationships you've gained through Colorado Springs
EWI. I'm truly convinced we have the connections here to help each
of us achieve our individual dreams.
Linda and I want to thank you for the opportunity to represent
Colorado Springs EWI at the Conference. It was a pleasure and an

Last Month's Meeting
The May, 2004 meeting took place at the Colorado Springs Center
for Creative Leadership. Following a wonderful buffet and social
hour, the program was presented by Roberta Kraus, Ph.D. As a member
of the Center's faculty, Roberta has spent the past several years
developing and implementing customized leadership and management
programs for superintendents, principals and school leadership teams
at various institutions in the educational sector; she is a member
of the Leadership Development Program which focuses on the creative
leader's role in developing their potential and the potential of
others. From this vein, Dr. Kraus' program to our chapter was titled
"Optimizing Peformance for High-Achieving Women". The
current challenge women leaders face today has shifted FROM fitting
into a men's world and more on the lifestyle choices we confront.
The approach to this is:
l. Acting Authentically - desire to have a healthy alignment between
inner values & beliefs and other behaviors: know yourself; assess
your behaviors and values; take action; believe in yourself.
2. Making Connections - our need to be close to others (family,
friend, coworkers, community): use these others to validate
experiences; develop a mentoring relationship; network; reconnect
with our past. (Definitely EWI women)
3. Living Agentically - our fundamental desire to have control over
our lives: set goals and adapt them as necessary; pay attention
to feedback; remain open to possibilities; use relationships wisely.---
4. Achieving Wholeness - desire to unite different life roles into
an integrated whole: view it as a dynamic process; set boundaries;
incorporate time for reflection and spirituality; view yourself
holistically; restructure your thoughts.
5. Gaining Self-Clarity - know who you are and how you fit into
the world: ask for informal feedback; monitor your progress on your
goals; pay attention to the environment; make self-learning a priority.
There was great interaction at this meeting as we partnered off
and discussed these topics. Following the presentation we had a
tour of the city. Thanks so very much to Roberta Kraus and her staff
for such a cordial, social, and educational evening.
