Kush Desai, LCSW

Philosophy of Care

“A connection is the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.” - Brene Brown

Kush approaches his position as a counselor and his relationship with his clients with the utmost respect and honor. He understands that it’s not easy to reach out when you are in the midst of pain, and it can be even harder to open up. That is why Kush is passionate about creating a safe space where opening up, healing, and growing is invited.

It is okay if you have trepidation or doubts surrounding the counseling process, and it doesn’t matter if you want to start slow. Kush meets his clients where they are at and helps them get to where they want to be. Kush believes it’s an honor to support patients in their journey and follows a companionship approach to his work

When he’s not in the counseling room, Kush enjoys going on hikes, watching movies, and spending time with his family.

Kush has experience working with clients anywhere from children to the elderly, from grief work to homelessness. His wide range of experience makes him an expert at understanding where people are coming from even if he hasn’t lived it himself. He always strives to connect with the whole person. You are much more than just a problem to be solved, and you deserve a counselor who sees all of you.

Kush received his Master of Social Work in 2019 from the University of Denver, with a concentration in Aging Services and Policy. During his Master program, Kush worked in the Bereavement Services department at Suncrest Hospice. Most recently, Kush provided grief support in his role as a Hospice Social Worker at Pikes Peak Hospice and Palliative Care.

In addition to his work as a grief and bereavement counselor, he has experience working with children in child welfare, survivors of domestic violence, older adults in nursing communities, and individuals experiencing homelessness.

In his counseling practice, he frequently employs CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy- addressing thoughts and emotions), ACT, (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy- working with mindfulness and acceptance strategies) and SFBT (Solution-Focused Brief Therapy- goal directed and collaborative).
