About Us

Athena McCullough


I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor. With a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, I specialize in diverse therapeutic approaches holding numerous certifications for family and child therapy. I also serve on the Board for the Denver Family Institute to support the training of future therapists in the Denver community and advocate for the oppressed and marginalized.

Outside of therapy, I’m a wife and mom navigating a busy family life with two middle schoolers. Life is full, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.


A space to be seen, heard, and supported.

I started the journey to become a therapist after personally experiencing the transformative impact of someone who truly saw, challenged, and assisted me in rediscovering myself during my own therapy. 

At McCullough Family Therapy, our vision is to create a world where everyone has a secure space where they feel genuinely cared for, listened to, and can receive authentic empathy and support in growth and healing.

In each session, our goal is to establish connections rooted in understanding, guided by a philosophy that emphasizes the significance of deeply comprehending the layers of a person and their situation before offering advice.

We recognize that the foundation for therapy starts with a safe space for you to explore your thoughts without fear of judgment. We hold space for you to show up as you are and we meet you there. We prioritize understanding to unveil patterns and facilitate habit changes, striving for tangible improvements in clients’ lives. Our team prides ourselves on providing the best support, ensuring each client benefits from diverse professional perspectives amongst our therapists. We firmly believe that safety, understanding, and collaboration are the foundation for genuine change.

As a team of well-trained practitioners with evolving certifications and years of real-world experience, we take pride in our personal growth, transitioning from individuals to a collaborative group of professionals dedicated to making a meaningful impact.

Together, we can open the door to real change.
