Sarah Myers selected as new executive director of Colorado Lawyer Assistance Program

Monday, May 7, 2018

DENVER – The Colorado Supreme Court announced today it has approved the selection of Sarah Myers as the new executive director of the Colorado Lawyer Assistance Program (COLAP), effective July 1, 2018.

Myers will replace Barbara Ezyk, who started the program in January 2012 and is retiring from the position, effective June 30, 2018.

COLAP is a wellness-based, confidential program for Colorado judges, lawyers and law students. The program is able to assist in any issues affecting a judge, lawyer or law student’s ability to be an effective member of the Colorado legal community.

“We are so grateful to have such an outstanding professional to take Barbara’s place,” said David W. Stark, chair of the Supreme Court’s Attorney Regulation Advisory Committee. “While Sarah will have big shoes to fill, we are confident that the best Lawyer Assistance Program in the country will be in good hands and will rise to even greater heights in its service to lawyers, judges, law students, and the community.”

Myers was hired as COLAP’s clinical case manager in March 2013 and later that year was appointed as clinical director.

Myers received her undergraduate degree from the University of Richmond in Virginia, her master’s degree from Naropa University in Boulder, and her J.D. from the University of Denver. She is licensed in Colorado as an attorney, a marriage and family therapist, and an addiction counselor.

Myers also is licensed post-graduate level secondary teacher, certified trauma and abuse psychotherapist and LGBTQ therapist. She is a member of the National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being, and was a lead author of the 2017 report “The Path to Lawyer Well-Being: Practical Recommendations for Positive Change.”

“I am honored to serve as COLAP’s next Executive Director,” Myers said. “Our program has experienced tremendous growth due to the support we have received from the legal community. I look forward to building on this strong foundation and continuing to provide the most up-to-date and comprehensive assistance to our legal community.”
