Welcome to AK Counseling Services!
Counseling for Adults, Couples, Kids and Teens
Are you feeling held back in your social life, relationships or personal development? Dealing with the stressors of modern life can be overwhelming and prevent you from living the life you want! Whether at home, work or school; the challenges we can’t seem to overcome eventually leave us feeling exhausted and hopeless. We backslide or remain stagnant. In therapy, couples and individuals gain new perspectives and learn more effective ways of correcting the interactions and patterns that lead to us to frustration, hurt, and misunderstandings. Through changing and improving the outlook and perspective about the world around you, many sources of negative feelings are resolved and things start to change for the better. But, the right counselor can help energize and empower you to overcome your obstacles.

Alice helped us save our marriage. She listened to us and provided valuable feedback. With each session, things got a better and better. Thank you so much for helping our family! We highly recommend Alice if you're looking for a marriage counselor in Highlands Ranch!Janet C.
I'm so thankful I found Alice! She has helped me make outstanding progress in therapy. Much more than I've ever made with past therapists over the years. She's very easy to talk to, kind, non judgmental, supportive and genuinely cares. The EMDR part of her therapy was new to me. It's fascinating how well it works and I'm still in awe at how much it's helped me. I feel this has been a huge part of how I've been able to make great progress in my therapy. I have seen changes in myself (both with how I respond to situations & with how I view myself) within a few months that I've been struggling with & trying to change for many years. I'm amazed by her & the knowledge she possesses. I highly recommend Alice!!Shawna J.
Alice is a highly professional counselor. She is great with teens and adolescents. A great therapist if you're looking near Highlands Ranch!Eric T.
When I first came here, like all people who come to these therapy sessions, there is a lot of resistance and reluctance. I came voluntarily to work myself to develop a better relationship with myself so I can have a better relationship with my girlfriend. It has turned out to be the best thing I've done. I now realize there are a lot of issues within myself that I really need to work on so I can have a better relationship with people in general and most importantly so I can love myself. Worth the drive all the way to Highlands Ranch.Julian A.
Alice has changed our lives and saved our marriage. I cannot be more grateful to her for her compassion and guidance. Her insight on all aspects of our marriage is very much appreciated. I could not recommend her enough. Thank you!!Chris K.
Alice is a great counselor. She helped me understand lots about myself and guided me through some really tough times. I highly recommend her services and will return if I need to.Aram P.
Alice Keshmeshian's intuitiveness, intelligence, and excellent listening and communication skills are just a few of the traits that make her an effective counselor. In the time that I met with Alice, she challenged my thought patterns and ways of being in the world that were no longer working for me, and she supported me as I stretched outside my comfort zone. Without exception, at the end of every session, I left feeling heard, understood and empowered to make choices that were more in line with my true self. Alice's goal is to basically work herself out of job, not to keep someone in a dependent state. I highly recommend her counseling services. The skills you will learn from her will last a lifetime!Monica K.
Alice is a knowledgeable and trusted counselor that provided guidance and insight to myself and my children during difficult life transitions.Beth N.
My daughter and I began seeing Alice when her dad left our marriage and we subsequently endured several deaths in our family. She had just turned 13 and thought she felt her world was falling apart, she was unable to express it and was unable to accept the empathy and the deep love I felt for her. I was feeling helpless and hopeless when a counselor from her school suggested I call Alice. Making this step was one of the most important things I have ever done.. Alice's warmth and kindness and her ability to communicate on every age level, made my daughter feel as though there truly was someone who got it...and her. She explained to her unequivocally, that, unless she considered her condition life threatening, that their conversations were completely confidential. After a few months of sessions, she and I both felt equipped to try it on our own. Because of the faith I I have in Alice, I always feel completely confident when I recommend her to a friend.Jessie P.
Alice Keshmeshian is incredible psychotherapist. It's amazing how quickly she can get to the root of the issue and see the problems for what they are. Then she guides the conversation in such a loving way so that everyone understands what they need to do. Highly recommended!Ava L.
I highly recommend Alice for individual therapy and couples counseling. Alice has been my therapist for several months, helping me reach amazing breakthroughs with my anxiety, anger, and depression. With the help of Alice, I have made major improvements in my relationship with my significant other and I was also promoted in my career. She is excellent at Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. Without a doubt, Alice is the best counselor in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. I have never met a more intelligent, caring and genuine therapist.Naomi Z.
It is not easy to go to see a counselor for ‘sex issues’, yet Alice always made my husband and I feel comfortable. She has a way of explain things that is validating, and also takes the mystery out of any sexual situation. She worked hard to be respectful and we benefited from her expertise.Hailey P.
I could not be happier with the results of these counseling sessions. My husband and I have started a new chapter of our lives filled with love and understanding. If you really care about your relationship, this is definitely a service you need to consider when experiencing issues in your relationship. Highly recommended!Eva P.
Alice is amazing. She is kind, flexible, understanding and professional. It can be difficult to make the decision to get help from a counselor, but from our very first call, Alice made it easy. She is very sensible, soothing and willing to work with you, schedule, and time. During the sessions, she won't sit there and say "uh-huh, yes, sure" -- she actually gives you concrete feedback and helps you understand what you need to and fast. I saw Alice during a particularly stressful time in my life, and in just six sessions, she gave me the tools I needed to get from where I was to a healthier, happier point. In other words, instead of catching the fish for me (or letting me go on and on about my desire to catch it), she taught me how to fish so I wouldn't have to depend on her or anyone else past those six sessions. She's welcomed me to go back whenever I need to, and it's nice to have that too. I've seen a number of counselors in the past who haven't worked out or where it felt like you are talking forever with no results, but Alice is very good at what she does, not intimidating at all and truly a rare find. Highly recommended with no hesitation! She'll help you get where you need to be -- just try her for one session and see for yourself.Sadie O.
Where do I begin with my experience with Alice? I have never participated in any form of counseling before, however I had just gone thru a heart-wrenching breakup in an emotionally abuse relationship and I knew that I couldn't do it on my own. I e-mailed Alice on a Sunday (she was referred by someone else) and she promptly responded within an hour of my inquiry. I spoke with her the next day and was put on the schedule within 48 hours to see Alice. It was all so efficient, simple and stress free. Alice's insights, empathy and advice were 100% priceless. I felt 50 times better after just the first visit. She helped soothe my anxiety and gave me productive ways to cope with what I was dealing with. She helped me in ways that no friend or family member ever could. Without Alice, I know I would still be struggling to this day to move forward. I would recommend ANY of my friends or acquaintances to see her if they're going thru a trying time OR just need someone objective to talk to. Thank you, Alice for truly changing my life!Penelope I.
From the first visit, Alice makes you feel right at home. She doesn’t just listen and nod her head like other counselors --she offers helpful feedback and asks questions that really make you explore your behaviors. I also really enjoy the exercises/"homework" she suggests. Recently, I had to speak at a work conference and usually get very anxious about public speaking, but after discussing my worries with Alice and going through some helpful visualization exercises, I got up to the podium and had zero nervousness. Would definitely recommend her!Mason B.
Alice helped me in more ways than I could have ever expected. I thought it would have taken years of work to try to get to where we've arrived but after only about three months, I feel a world of a difference has been made already and the course of my life has been solidified to unfold the way it's supposed to. I'd recommend her to anyone who's in need of a counselor in Highlands Ranch or anywhere for that matter.Jamie C.
My partner and I sought out for a marriage counselor and found Alice. We've seen her for about about 6 months. In that time she provided both my partner and I with the equal time, attention and understanding that was need to restart our relationship. Along the way she encouraged the two of us to dig deeper into our own world and cultural views and understand the fallacies that we had, and that were hurting our relationship. Thank you Alice for helping us trust the process and acknowledge our role in bettering our relationship.Mark P.
Great help, after learning about Alice's counseling services I'm very impressed with her work.Marissa L.
