Family Counselor
Blair Thurston, MA, LPCC, NCC

Originally from Georgia, Blair received her Bachelor’s degree in both Psychology and Spanish from the University of Colorado Boulder and her Master’s degree in Counseling with an emphasis in couple and family therapy from the University of Colorado Denver. She completed her internship at Animal Assisted Therapy Programs of Colorado working with kids, adolescents, and families while supplementing her hours by observing and participating in Family Week at CeDAR and volunteering at the Betty Ford Children’s Program. Additionally, Blair completed an intensive externship training in emotionally focused therapy for couples. Blair is passionate about treating addiction systemically and including the entire family in the patient’s recovery process. She believes that health in one person has a positive ripple effect on the entire family system and teaches family members how to break codependent patterns in order to develop healthy, interdependent relationships. Blair infuses her work with a sense of levity, curiosity, hope, and opportunity as individuals battle the feelings of despair, powerlessness, and hopelessness that so often accompany families impacted by addiction. In her free time, you can find Blair running or riding her bike outside, Latin dancing (salsa/bachata/zouk), sleeping in, spending time in nature, and dreaming of her next trip to a Spanish-speaking country.
