About Jessica Reynolds, LCSW

My name is Jessica Reynolds, I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW). I earned a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Denver in 2013. I have over ten years of experience in the human services field, initially practicing social work with children and families involved with the Department of Human Services in Colorado. I have gained a wealth of experience working with adults and children who have struggled with depression, PTSD, and anxiety.

My role as a therapist is to guide you into learning how to consciously identify patterns or blocks that will sometimes hinder us during our journey. It is time to focus on yourself and sometimes that can take a lot of work. As a wounded healer who is a survivor of domestic violence and childhood trauma, I understand how difficult it is to find the right therapist and to be vulnerable to a complete stranger. In the therapy process there is no single prescription that will heal all invisible wounds. The therapeutic process is tailored to your specific individual needs. I am trained in various types of approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy, which is a fancy term that refers to modifying dysfunctional emotions, behaviors, and thoughts. I am also trained in acceptance commitment therapy which is a type of therapy to help us lessen the load of our symptoms so we can live our best lives.

My passion involves breaking down the stigma of mental health specifically in communities of color. I currently serve as an Adjunct professor with Our Lady of the Lake University. Teaching allows me to stay fresh. As a social worker, I stay connected with updated community resources within the community.
Thank you for reading. I look forward to working with you.
