Meet the Providers

Dr. Josh Sanders, Clinic Director

As a strengths-based clinician, I look to help individuals, families, and couples identify and build upon strengths they already possess.  Rather than staying problem focused, I hope to help clients focus on solutions to their identified problems ultimately resulting in a decline in symptoms experienced and an overall greater satisfaction with relationships and life in general.

I first became licensed as both an LPC and LMFT in Louisiana in 2014. At this point, I started working primarily with children and some adults. In 2017, I received my licenses in Colorado. I enjoy working with clients of all ages, but feel like I tend to connect well with female clients presented with depression or anxiety.  As an MFT, I also love working with families. My past work experiences include inpatient substance abuse treatment, outpatient geriatric IOP, inpatient adolescent facilities, private practice, and community-based mental health rehabilitation services.

As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, I have a great respect and enjoyment for working with others in my community. I believe that my own experiences and empathy assist me in being a helpful therapist for members of this population.

My goal is to restore patients to their optimal psychological wellbeing by building a strong provider-patient relationship. Through shared decision-making processes, I aim to provide optimal patient-centered care.

Samantha Hudgins, PA - C

My priority as a provider is to ensure that each patient receives superior health care. Our goal, together, is to see you thrive. It’s important that we build a plan together that you understand and with which you are comfortable.

Mariela Shoupp, Regional Clinic Administrator

Healthcare management is truly my passion. I have managed medical centers specializing in everything from alternative pain management to family medicine. My undergraduate education is in Healthcare Administration, and I am currently a graduate student at Johns Hopkins studying Medical Management.
