Jennifer Fuller James, LCSW – Clinical Social Worker/Therapist
I have worked in the mental health and education fields since 1992. I have retired from the education field to focus all my energy on a clinical private practice. I am passionate about helping people of all ages work through life’s challenges in order to thrive.
I am a private practice therapist serving clients in and around Woodland Park, Colorado and throughout Colorado via Teletherapy. As your therapist, it is my priority to create a safe and welcoming atmosphere that promotes growth and positive change, for you. I look forward to working with you to address your challenges and realize your goals. Therapy is a process that can move you toward being the healthiest and happiest version of yourself and living the life you desire.
In my practice I see teens and adults in my office in Woodland Park and through Teletherapy. I utilize an eclectic approach based on the needs and desired outcomes of my clients.
Please contact me to assist you or your teen on the path to happiness and well being.
I use a variety of approaches to address my clients unique needs. Many successful treatment plans will utilize a foundation of behavioral, biofeedback/neurofeedback, cognitive/cognitive-behavioral, emotionally focused therapy, family systems, interpersonal, person-centered, play therapy, relational psychotherapy, solution-focused brief therapy therapy then quickly move toward a tailored treatment plan and approach that includes tools to help sustain the growth experienced in regular therapy.
Additionally, there is a growing body of research that supports the practice of self-compassion and mindfulness in psychotherapy. Neuroscience research reveals individuals that practice these techniques are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to heal painful memories from the past. It is my honor and mission to help my clients move past what’s blocking them from reaching their full potential individually and in their relationships.
