THERAPY SERVICES:

Counseling for Depression, Anxiety, and Disordered Eating: Do you or a loved one feel depressed and anxious for no apparent reason? Is it difficult to get out of bed in the mornings and get excited about things you used to love doing? Do you feel all alone and as though nobody understands your struggles? Or do you feel awkward in social situations and tend to overthink things and assume the worst? If any or all of these apply to you, you may be struggling with depression and anxiety.

As a Stanford trained clinical psychologist, I offer psychotherapy to adolescents and adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, and disordered eating habits. I will help you explore your inner world and create awareness by providing compassionate guidance. Through my ability to read between the lines, I can see you and help you better understand yourself. My approach to therapy is both insight-oriented and skill-based. As a researcher and clinician, I am able to apply the most up-to-date evidence-based treatments to help you find a way back to a fulfilling and satisfying life. We will work through subconscious barriers and challenges that may interfere with your joy in life, growth, and path to healing.

Counseling for Coping with Cancer and Other Serious Medical Conditions: I specialize in working with individuals and their family members who suffer from serious medical conditions such as cancer. Let’s work together through the emotional struggles associated with the diagnosis of a physical illness. Emotional difficulties can appear at any stage in the treatment process and sometimes only surface once all treatments are completed. I will help you better cope with anxiety and worries associated with your condition and help you make sense of your disease productively to find your way back to a fulfilling life. I have extensive experience working with oncology patients and their family members. I also offer caregiver support. Furthermore, I help adolescents cope with the physical illness of a parent and I work with loss and grief following the passing of a loved one.

Counseling for Managing Divorce, Separation and Custody Proceedings: I have expert knowledge in divorce, separation and custody proceedings. I offer both psychological and neuropsychological forensic assessments as well as therapy services for adolescents and adults who are impacted by divorce or separation. No matter the reasons, going through a separation or divorce can be overwhelming for everyone involved. It can feel like your and your children’s entire worlds have been turned upside down which makes it difficult to function throughout the day. Many research studies have shown that people who undergo divorce face a variety of physiological and psychological difficulties including grief, anger, frustration, anxiety, disappointment, and more.

Divorce is associated with financial hardship, and an increase in depression as people experience loss of partner, hopes and dreams, and lifestyle. But there are things you can do to get through this difficult adjustment and I am here to help. Sharing feelings with a counselor or therapist can help you get through this period. Isolation can raise your stress levels, reduce your concentration, and get in the way of your work, relationships and overall health. Contact me for an initial consultation session and let me help you get back on your feet. I am also here to support your children through this period of adjustment.

Dignity Therapy: Dignity therapy is a short therapy program which involves the creation of a memoir based on your life’s legacy. We will put into words the meaning and purposes of your life. Your story will be made into a bound book which can be shared with loved ones. Dignity Therapy is designed for patients who are facing a life-threatening illness, seniors who would like to reflect over their lives and help them with challenges that may accompany the process of aging, and anybody else who enjoys giving thought to their life’s legacy, discuss values and lessons learned, and those who would like to leave a message for loved ones in a narrative document.

PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT SERVICES:

I provide a variety of assessment services, including psychological and mental health evaluations for custody, divorce, and separation proceedings, adoption evaluations, and neurocognitive assessments.

With 19 publications, I am an expert in psychometric methodology and theory. I conduct high-quality psychological evaluations for adults and adolescents to help inform treatment or for legal purposes, such as custody proceedings. I also provide expert court testimonies as needed.

I pride myself in my ability to conduct thorough and astute psychological assessments, where I systematically examine the information gathered from an assessment and weave it into a comprehensive and complete picture of the individual’s competencies, struggles, and capabilities. Recommendations are based on all the assessment results and on interviews conducted with the individual being evaluated, peers, family, attorneys and others who may be able to shed light on the individual as a complex, unique being. This person-centered, thorough and caring approach to testing, coupled with my expertise in psychometric and measurement, helps me understand the individual in an objective and accurate manner with focus on individual strengths. The results of the tests will help inform and develop a treatment plan to facilitate success in your life.

Charlie Wright, LSP

Charlie is a Colorado Department of Education credentialed school psychologist who has maintained both a private practice and employment in the public school system for more than twenty years.

He is a past president of the Colorado Society of School Psychologists, has co-authored two professional journal articles on the Content of Undergraduate Transpersonal Psychology Courses and Reasons for not Reporting Peak Experiences. In addition, he was employed by the Institute of Behavioral Genetics to assess cognition for a long term study that focused on learning disabilities.

As a psycho-educational diagnostician, Charlie’s goal is to effectively integrate intellectual abilities, academic skills, and personality characteristics, in developing an effective treatment plan to address the client’s area(s) of concern. In addition, executive functioning abilities, as well as attention/inattention skills, are also evaluated. The assessment process enables the client to gain a comprehensive understanding of how these factors impact their educational performance, employment expectations, interpersonal relationships and their intrapersonal self perceptions or self esteem.

Clients can schedule a free telephone consultation to review their individual concerns and help to determine if psychometric assessment is warranted. If so, an initial intake meeting with a structured interview will be scheduled to help determine what specific tests are indicated, depending on the specific questions that the client wants answered. As noted above Charlie is trained to assess intelligence, attentional impairments, achievement, and to provide personality/emotional profiles.

Central to my psychotherapy practice is my passion for serving children, teens, families, and women. While my services include traditional methods such as Cognitive Behavioral techniques and psychoanalysis, I believe the most effective modality for change is often through interacting with animals and nature.

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy: Horses offer unconditional support in working through relationship patterns and emotional difficulties. You, your child, or your family, will be guided to improve coping mechanisms, develop healthy attachments, and to live an empowered life.

Animal assisted therapy: Working with either my animals or your own family pets has proven to be instrumental in helping those who suffer from depression or anxiety or who have experienced a loss due to divorce, illness, or trauma.

Teen therapy and Mentoring: Throughout my 15 year career working with teens, I have received training in treating sexual trauma, adoption and attachment, as well as effectively serving persons on the Autism spectrum. I discovered that the best way to create permanent change for your child is with out-of-the-box, or more specifically, out-of-the-office methods. Because adolescents often have difficulty in a traditional office setting, they feel more open to therapy when in their community environment. I am available to pick your child up from school, to meet in a park, or in your home. Some examples of mentoring activities are hiking, rock climbing, horseback riding, or simply going for coffee. Whether I am helping them job hunt or accompanying them to a meeting with their school counselor, I will be working intensively to help your teen resolve their difficulties. Finally, I believe that parent education and involvement are integral components for an effective treatment plan.

For more information about how I can help you, your child, or your adolescent, please visit my website www.jennykey.com or feel free to email or contact me directly.

Specialty Treatment Areas: Transitional and adjustment issues, drug and alcohol abuse, mood disorders, anxiety, depression, school issues, grief and loss issues, oppositional defiance, trauma, family issues, parent coaching, early motherhood

I have been working with children, adolescents, and young adults since 2000 in a number of non-profit and private organizations. Early on, I helped organize the teen advisory board for pregnancy prevention and adolescent self esteem programs in Portland, Oregon. Since returning to Boulder, I worked as a residential counselor at Attention Homes, completed my graduate internship working with children, adolescents, and families at the Mental Health Center of Boulder County, worked as a primary case worker AIM House, a private residential transitional program for young women, and taught emotional and general health classes at Watershed School and Catalyst High School.  I now draw from each of these unique experiences when working with my clients in private practice.

My work with teenagers and young adults includes drug and alcohol abuse and addiction, social anxiety and shyness, general anxiety and panic attacks, depression, grief and loss issues, trauma, school issues, and complex family issues. While all of these can be horrific for the individual and families involved, the underlying resiliency present in each of these young people and families is the foundation that we build from in the healing process. The core value and the innate goodness of each person can be nurtured and strengthened to work through the most difficult of situations.

Why I enjoy working with adolescents and young adults (including college students):

Adolescence and young adulthood are such amazing, magical, wondrous, and tumultuous times of life. There is such ripe ground for exploration and discovery, yet many young people get stuck in the mud along the journey. It has been a great joy and education for me to work with teenagers and young adults in a variety of settings, and it was these experiences that set me off on my own journey into psychology. Through these experiences, I have become keenly aware of the power of HOPE for change that is present and crucial when working with young people. When coupled with deep listening, a lot of humor, and witnessing the unique person experiencing their world for the first time, the process of therapy can be a profoundly rewarding experience for both client and therapist.

Working with parents:

I offer support for parents who are navigating difficult terrain with their adolescents and young adults, including divorce, transition from middle school to high school, and transition from high school to college and adulthood. While these times can be very difficult for the children, who may also need therapeutic support, it is imperative that parents acknowledge their own difficulties, patterns, and feelings present in the conflict. When parents are able to work through their own issues, it provides a healthy model for their children to do the same. Parents’ ability to take care of themselves through conflicts is emphasized.

Taking care of yourself starts when you kids are babies!
