How I Work:

Focusing on the individual and their unique capability toward healing is the guiding approach I take in therapy. I work with great curiosity to explore the distractions and negative cycles that may be keeping you stuck. The struggle for clarity is a difficult one to navigate in isolation; together we can look at patterns and behaviors that no longer service you and gently work toward a new, more expansive pathway. The therapeutic process is one of finding balance between the emotional and rational, the mind, body and spirit then bringing that forward into our lives. Bringing meaning and integration to mind, body and spirit is the philosophy I hold in the practice of therapy.

Individual Holistic Psychotherapy:

It seems to me that in order for real change and healing to occur, the mind, body, spirit and brain must all be incorporated into the therapeutic process. Each of our stories is unique and there is no “one-size-fits-all” treatment.         

            Together we can work on:

  • Identifying triggers that put you into a survival state (fight/flight/freeze/collapse), which can contribute to self-defeating patterns.
  • Exploring your relationship to your family of origin.
  • Learning your attachment style and revitalizing your relationships.
  • Developing compassion for all parts of yourself.
  • Creating resources to help calm your nervous system.
  • Loosening the grip of chronic self-judgment.
  • Healing addictive and reactive patterns.
  • Building mindfulness techniques to help you feel more grounded and present. 

Family Work:

Families can benefit from therapy when they experience any stressful  event that may strain family relationships, such as financial hardship, divorce,  or the death of a loved one. In addition, it can be effective in  treating mental health concerns that impact the family as a whole, such  as depression, substance abuse, chronic illness, and food issues, or everyday concerns, like communication problems, interpersonal conflict, or behavioral problems in children and adolescents.

I work with families in an Emotionally-Focused framework, based on the work of Sue Johnson. This approach works from an attachment-based lens to help understand problematic cycles that trigger and maintain issues in the family. It then works to build interactions that that establish safer connection and a calmer, more regulated atmosphere among individuals and in the family system.

            Together we can work on:

  • Building skills for more emotional regulation and a better sense of feeling grounded.
  • Dismantling reactive negative cycles by establishing a more secure base of attachment.
  • Studying the blocks that arise in connection and support.
  • Creating an alliance through effective communication, emotional safety and bonding.

 

Trauma Informed Therapy/ Sensorimotor Psychotherapy:

Dr. Gabor Mate defines trauma as, “a psychic wound that hardens you psychologically that then interferes with your ability to grow and develop. It pains you and then you act out of the pain. It induces fear and then you are acting out of that fear. Trauma is not what happens to you, it’s what happens inside of you as a result of what happened to you.”

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP) is a complete therapeutic modality  for trauma and attachment issues. SP welcomes the body as an integral  source of information which can guide resourcing and the accessing and  processing of challenging, traumatic, and developmental experience. SP  is a holistic approach that includes somatic, emotional, and cognitive  processing and integration.

SP enables clients to discover and change habitual physical and  psychological patterns that impede optimal functioning and well-being.  SP is helpful in working with dysregulated activation and other effects  of trauma, as well as the limiting belief systems of developmental  issues.

 SP helps clients cultivate their strengths, while providing enough  challenge to stimulate growth, long lasting change, and well-being.

            Together we can work on:

  • Validating your past hurts and traumas
  • Working though internalized feelings of shame and confusion
  • Identifying and understanding the everyday triggers that put you into a state of fight/flight/freeze/collapse.
  • Healing addictive and reactive patterns
  • Understanding how to process and release traumatic memories and emotions held in the body
  • Creating resources to calm the nervous system and help deal with trauma-related symptoms
  • Alleviating the suffering from emotions like fear, shame and anger

About Me:

Since graduating from Pacifica Graduate Institute in 2015, I have been cultivating my therapeutic practices in and out of agencies. I have worked in a transitional program for young adults, AIM House, going on 6 years. The program is structured to help guide young people on garnering enough ego strength to forge a path of independence, while also staying connected and building community. I also worked with their families in assisting with the individuation process through parent coaching and extensive family systems work through an attachment-focused lens. I have been in private practice for going on 7 years. My practice encompasses work with individuals, couples and families and has included a variety of age ranges. In meeting with such an array of unique individuals and tailoring to what they need along the way, I have deepened greatly into various aspects of psychology.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor working in Boulder, Colorado. I have over 7 years of experience in the mental health field. These experiences include: providing neurofeedback for individuals with addiction, PTSD, and ADD/ADHD at a substance abuse rehabilitation center, mentoring young adults in a day treatment program, working with adults in a home-based recovery program, teaching emotional regulation skills groups for teens and adults, and seeing individuals in private practice. 

I have a warm, gentle and intuitive approach. My work is founded on the belief that each human being has the inherent qualities that fully serve them in healing trauma, emotional dysregulation, and conflict. My work is also informed by modern neuroscience research, which shows that psychological change happens in relationship through present moment connection and awareness. I believe that therapy offers a unique opportunity to experience this type of connection in a way that provides lasting change. I start by building a safe, welcoming and trusting relationship with my clients. I utilize my training in a variety of modalities including: mindfulness, attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology, EMDR and DBT to tailor an approach to meet each client’s unique needs. I am passionate about helping adolescents, young adults and adults develop new awareness, skills, and confidence to lead a life worth living. 

Educational Background: I received a Bachelors of Arts in Transpersonal Psychology from Naropa University in 2008. In 2016, I completed a Masters of Arts in Contemplative Psychotherapy at Naropa University. I have advanced training in EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), and Authentic Relating communication. 

Specialty Treatment Areas: Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, Self-harm, Mood Disorders, School Issues, Grief and Loss, OCD, Panic Disorder, Sexual Abuse/Assault, Social Isolation, Spiritual Emergency, Stress Management, Transitional Issues, Mentoring

My Practice:

Individuals

Teens: Navigating the teen years is a complex and difficult road. Oftentimes, this period is characterized by challenging moods and behaviors. Some teens experience more extreme forms of dysregulation that include: impulsive behavior, self-harm, panic and phobias, OCD, and suicidal ideation/attempts. While it is commonly known that the majority of brain development occurs in early childhood, studies show that the most advanced parts of the brain don’t complete their development until adolescence is over. The teenager’s brain is undergoing massive amounts of change, growth, and re-organization of patterns that will influence the rest of their lives. I offer individual psychotherapy for teenagers, which provides a safe space to experience support as they navigate their worlds. Having an external space where your teen can express their emotions and thoughts outside of friends and parents can be a crucial part of their growth, safety, and development. 

Trauma: I specialize in working with individuals who have experienced trauma using EMDR therapy. EMDR is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. The net effect is that clients conclude EMDR therapy feeling empowered by the very experiences that once debased them. Clients find that their wounds have not just closed, they have transformed. 

Transition: We often seek therapy when we’re ready for change and part of our life has become unbalanced. A feeling of discontent, depression, or anxiety may have lasted a lifetime, or may have been initiated by a transitional change, such as loss of a relationship or career, or a yearning to grow beyond where we have been stuck. Working through transition involves many different emotions such as grief, anger, denial, confusion. The crux of what I do is help you integrate the various parts that make up your whole being; your emotional, mental, physical and spiritual selves. I use a variety of methods to help facilitate this process, validated by latest neuroscience research. By beginning to integrate the various aspects of your being, you will begin to trust your natural capacity to thrive.

How I Work: Have you ever had the experience of talking with a helping professional but feeling like nothing is really happening? Have you found yourself in the same painful and infuriating loops over and over again in your relationships and work, patterns that threaten to erode self-confidence and the feeling that life can improve?

What advances in neuroscience demonstrate empirically is that we need immediate and visceral experiences of connection in the here-and-now to alter our brains and nervous system. This understanding is at the cornerstone of my stylistic approach. Working with me, you will find a therapist with over ten years of experience dedicated to listening deeply & non-judgmentally as well as challenging unconscious patterns that limit your growth and access to new experiences. You will leave sessions feeling more emotionally validated, psychologically organized, and ready to take actionable steps to move your life forward.

Specialty Treatment Areas:  Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to work with a highly diverse group of people across a number of stages of life. These challenges have included:

  • Perfectionism
  • Eating Disorders
  • Substance Abuse & Addiction
  • Trauma/ Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Anxiety/ Panic Attacks
  • Depression
  • Sex & Love Addiction/Codependency
  • ADD/ ADHD
  • Self-Harm
  • Suicidal Ideation
  • Rage Attacks
  • Impulse Control
  • Adolescent Challenges
  • Transitioning Young Adult Challenges
  • Executive Functioning Issues
  • Parenting Conflicts
  • Emotional Regulation Issues
  • Family Discord

Individuals Psychotherapy: One-to-one counseling can serve as an incredibly powerful launching pad for personal growth and life change. With an extensive training background that includes both behavioral interventions and psychodynamic approaches, I will partner with you to determine the individualized approach that will most deeply and comprehensively address the changes you are wanting for your life and well-being.

Family Work: How frequently do we find that the people we are closet to are often the hardest to reach or get us at our worst? Taking a deeply systemic and attachment oriented approach, I work with the family as a whole to understand the underlying blocks to emotional communication as well as to empower each member to express and ask for what they need. For over ten years, I have made a focal point of my practice helping families find ways to say the unsayable and work through issues surrounding trauma, substance abuse, divorce, and secrecy.

Groups: Do you ever find yourself gravitating to the same roles in your relationships with friends and colleagues? Do you long for genuine feedback about how others experience you and to identify ways you can be more effective in relationship? Group psychotherapy is singular in its ability to powerfully address and repair deep, unconscious patterns of relating. Using a here-and-now approach, I work as a group leader to create a culture where thoughts and feelings can be put into words and shared in a constructive way leading to interpersonal growth. It is understandably that many people find group psychotherapy intimidating. I will be happy to meet with you to determine if this could be a helpful next step in your personal evolution. Once within a group, you will be invited to take risks, experiment with new ways of being and communicating, and to anchor these changes in the lived experience of relating in the here-and-now.

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.
