Jan enjoys working with children (3-12), who are dealing with behavioral challenges and frustrations, often due to an inability to properly communicate their confusion, fear, and anger.
As life poses challenges, transitions, trauma, and maybe even abuse, children have great difficulty finding effective ways of coping and relieving the resultant feelings, thus negative social behavior occurs as they seek help. She is trained and experienced in helping kids identify positive ways to communicate and release their feelings to find resolution and resilience.
Play therapy enables her to communicate, when words are inadequate. Her integrative approach naturally encourages an intuitive and attentive relationship of trust. Venting and identification of feelings occurs, and healthful ways of communicating and dealing with challenges are learned. A focus on strengthening parental and family bonding reflects her team building approach to resiliency.
Jan received her Master’s in Counseling degree at Colorado Christian University, a CACREP approved program, in Colorado Springs, has over six years of formal Play Therapy experience, and many years of counseling experience in faith based settings. Currently she is pursuing the Registered Play Therapist certification.
Jan is self-pay only and accepts all major credit cards, checks, H.S.A. cards, Flex-spending cards, & cash. She does not accept Insurance or Medicaid.
