About me

Hello!

My name is Jaylea (She/Her). I am a Licensed Specialist Clinical Social Worker, Licensed Master's Addiction Counselor in the state of Kansas, and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Colorado. I have received training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Critical Incident Stress Debriefing, Competency to Stand Trial Evaluations, and Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT). I have experience in working with clients of all ages (ages 3+), backgrounds (rural, urban, LGBT+). I have worked with a wide range of concerns including but not limited to, depression, anxiety, career challenges, ADHD, emotional/physical trauma, and parenting problems. I have additionally worked with many people facing chronic and or terminal illness.

My therapy style is eclectic and empathetic. I believe everyone has a story to share and deserves a safe space to be able to share and process with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I don't believe in stigmatizing labels.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, EMDR, and Solution Focused Therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

Our first session is a consult to see if we are a good fit. Please understand that not all clients are a perfect fit with every therapist. We will discuss expectations and goals in this session and decide if we are a good therapeutic fit.

She’s great. I really like working with her. Has helped me heal a lot

Written on May 26, 2022 after therapy with Jaylea for 1 year and 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Jaylea is a compassionate therapist who provides a listening ear and a guiding hand during our sessions. She provides good feedback and I really connected to her because she made me welcome and not judged during our therapy session.

Written on Jan 31, 2022 after therapy with Jaylea for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, relationship issues, coping with life changes, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, career difficulties, grief, and coaching

I've been meeting with Jaylea for a few weeks now and I couldn't be more pleased. I had an experience with a previous person on here that left me in tears after our first session with how terribly it went and bad it made me feel. I had the exact opposite experience after my first session with Jaylea. That one session made a HUGE difference and we continue to make progress week after week. She really listens, doesn't judge, and offers actionable items to help me continue the work between sessions. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Jaylea is gentle but also encouraged me to challenge myself when I need it. She’s supportive, insightful and a great person to talk to. We’ve made great progress together.

Jaylea is an excellent therapist. She actively listens to my concerns and helps give me tools that I can apply in the times between therapy to get through stressful situations and times of high anxiety. She is attentive and remembers things I’ve mentioned in previous sessions, which is helpful when new situations arise. The attention to details in my life makes her a great therapist. I’m a Healthcare worker and her understanding of the stresses and difficult days, and helping me work through the last few months, has been invaluable.

Jaylea is an incredible counselor. She understands me when I’m rambling and upset, and helps me narrow down what is bothering me in a way that we can tackle things one at a time. She is helping me be a better functioning adult, person, friend, wife, nurse… all the things.
