Let us help you find your Stride!

Meg Bozzay

Founder

Meg has enjoyed an exciting career in the mental health and care management fields.  She has always been fascinated by the potential and resiliency of individuals and has dedicated herself to exploring these with clients.  Her clients describe her as attentive, kind, curious, and always chipper.

Her career began with directing a non-profit crisis hotline while attending the University of Virginia.  After which she transitioned to serve youth with behavioral concerns. It was during this time that she developed a passion for serving individuals with traumatic brain injury as well as serving clients with severe mental health concerns such as bipolar disorder and psychosis.  

Meg decided to return to school and attended the University of Washington for Clinical Social Work.  Following this, she joined Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, WA working with individuals seeking neurology and rehab services as well as serving in Emergency Departments providing crisis care and evaluation of clients experiencing severe mental health episodes and psychosis.  

After several years of observing the frequency with which clients returned to the emergency department, the struggle with long-term recovery, and the confusion with navigating available resources, Meg decided to transition to private care management to bridge the missing gap in services.

In her free time Meg can be found loving on any and all animals.  She and her husband love to rock climb, ski, and travel. They love a good laugh and enjoy spreading the joy of Colorado to family, friends, and clients!

Ashley, LCSW

Clinical Director

Ashley has a diverse background in the world of business, psychology, and social work. Her personal hero is social worker, Brené Brown, and lives by her quote: “Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.” She aims to partner with clients by guiding them in finding strength in vulnerability and empowering them to be the author of their own life story.

She started her career in the child welfare system working with adolescents living in the foster care system. Through providing individual therapy and case management, she was inspired by the resiliency of the human spirit. From there, she worked at University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in an individual therapy setting for adults and adolescents. During her time here, she began researching factors that lead to recidivism rates of psychiatric hospitalizations. This research inspired her to work in a setting where she could focus on crisis stabilization that promoted emotional resiliency and empowerment.

Ashley then transitioned to Denver Springs Hospital. She became the primary Adult Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) therapist. She worked to develop a 40 hour curriculum, utilizing evidence based approaches, to promote stabilization following inpatient hospitalization for both mental health and substance use reasons. This program expanded to include military and first responders, which led to incorporating trauma focused work. She grew a passion for crisis work and program development. She was promoted to Clinical Outpatient Program Manager and oversaw the expansion of outpatient services for adult and adolescent PHP/IOP programming. Her wealth of experience with mental health programming combined with her kind and creative nature provides an amazing support to her clients. Ashley loves working with clients to identify their goals and partner with them throughout their journey.

As a Colorado native, Ashley loves anything and everything outdoors. She is hoping to adopt a dog soon to join her, as she is always looking for the next adventure!

Kirra, LPC

Clinical Care Manager

Kirra brings a unique combination of experience with sports psychology and social work background. Being born and raised in the south, she attended the University of Mississippi for her undergraduate degree. Afterward, she moved to Denver in 2015 for graduate school and never looked back. She attended the University of Denver for her Master’s degree in Sport and Performance Psychology. During her graduate school career, Kirra worked not only with sports teams but also athletes and coaches on an individual level. Throughout this experience, she enjoyed working with the adolescent and young adult population from a systematic and solutions-focused perspective the most.

Following graduation, Kirra was drawn to the social work field and began her career as a mental health counselor in an acute residential treatment facility, for adolescents. She progressed upward to become a therapist and found that she loved working with this particular age group and their parents. During her time as a therapist, she focused on trauma-informed care, led therapeutic groups, and facilitated both individual and family therapy sessions. It was during this time she also helped to build an internal program that focused on healing clients with traumatic brain injuries and other cognitive impairments. In this very high level of care, she learned the importance of meeting a client where they are. To Kirra, there is nothing better than when the lightbulb “goes on” and the client realizes they have the power to work through something. She uses her equal parts of empathy and humor to help clients get down to the root of the issue before walking alongside them to a resolution.

When she is not working, you can find her enjoying the sunshine, skiing, hiking, walking her dog Maggie, instructing yoga classes, reading, or rewatching Harry Potter for the thousandth time.
