I have worked with children, adolescents, adults and families for 20 years in a variety of mental health and educational settings with a focus on increasing personal strengths and fostering healthy relationships. I specialize in the treatment of trauma and anxiety, along with depression, stress management, life transitions, relationship issues, parenting, interpersonal struggles and work and career issues.

In working with clients I use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), EMDR, Brainspotting, Hypnotherapy, client-centered and systems modalities, tailoring treatment to the specific needs of each individual. Therapy is a collaborative effort in which the client and therapist work jointly to identify barriers to growth, resolve past traumas, and focus on strategies to improve wellness. My approach to counseling is warm, collaborative, supportive, and direct. My belief is that every person has the ability to heal, change and grow. A strong therapeutic relationship encourages trust and allows the client and therapist to work equally in a team approach on difficult issues. As part of this process, I work to create tools and coping skills to fit the needs of each unique person using a variety of techniques.​

Jenna DeRosa - LPCC

  • Brainspotting Clinician
  • Master of Arts, Mental Health Counseling—Northwestern University
  • Bachelor of Arts, Psychology—University of Nebraska

Prior to my therapy work, I have worked with both adults and teenagers in transitional housing. I have over 6 years working with both adolescents and adults in a mental health setting. The individuals within this population struggle with; substance use, depression, anxiety, PTSD, sexual orientation, gender identity, body image, eating disorders and more.
While working with a variety of individuals amidst life transitions, depression and anxiety; I enjoy the ability to work collaboratively with clients to find a treatment that is best suited for them. I truly believe each client presented offers a unique experience and treatment should be tailored to fit their needs.

My goal is to provide a place for individuals to feel valued and heard. Acceptance is provided in order for individuals to feel safe vocalizing their struggles and emotions. I practice with sincere, direct and open communication in order to build the therapeutic alliance with each client. This foundation of therapy is what I strive to offer.

I chose this work in order to support each individual on their journey. I am moved by the connection that is formed with each individual in the therapeutic setting. I am privileged to witness and support each client as they begin to feel empowered and motivated while growth and change is occurring.

Alexa Ashworth - MFTC

  • Master of Arts in progress, Marriage and Family Therapy – Regis University
  • Bachelor of Arts, Community Psychology- University of Saint Cloud State

As a pre-licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I specialize in working with couples, families, parent-child relationships, and individuals.

I have always been passionately motivated to pursue a path where I am able to sit with other’s pain, providing the space one needs to find their own inner light. Since I was a little girl I have been constantly evolving into who I am today. The woods in my backyard growing up were a vast, entangled play area where my mind was able to run wildly. It started as a place to pretend and over the years became a sanctuary to meditate in and journal personal thoughts. I believe the place of peace I found in the woods is also that place of peace that can be found in the therapy room. This being said, my style of therapy is very experiential and I choose to work with clients as a whole person. It is my belief that every person can heal and grow through seeing the mind, body, and spirit as one.

I have an extensive and experienced background working as a Youth Treatment Counselor for adolescents and young children under the age of ten. Both populations I worked with were at risk for suicidal ideation, had self-injurious behaviors, struggled with major psychological needs, and endured the discomfort of deep emotional scars that have been imprinted on their lives from traumatic events. Alongside working with at risk youth and children, I have been a nanny with different family systems for eight years. Each family has shown me that when one another is being heard and emotions are validated, everyone has a larger sense of belonging.

I have also worked with individuals who have struggled with depression, loss, low self-esteem, high anxiety, or role confusion through volunteer and mission trips. In this recent year, I have started to gain experience working with couples and families as they have encountered challenging life transitions or unknowns of a new directional path.

By more fully loving ourselves and knowing who we are, we can then know how to have better relations with others. Especially those we love. Love for me is the main source of finding unity within oneself and union with another. We are all capable of this discovery.

Kate Pauley - MA Intern

  • Master of Arts in progress, Marriage and Family Therapy – Regis University
  • Bachelor of Arts- Economics – Leigh University Pennsylvania

Hi, I am so glad that you’re here. I want you to know that you have the power within you to transform your life and it would be my absolute joy to help you to harness that power. My wish for you is that you create the change in your life that you desire.

No matter where you are on your journey, I want to walk beside you to help you to determine the best path forward. I utilize both evidenced-based and mindfulness-based mental health treatment to facilitate change. I work holistically, always seeing the whole person to understand needs for healing and growth. I believe that through the mind, humans have the ability to control how to interpret our interactions, through the body we determine how we experience the world, and through the spirit we get to determine what it all means.

My background and clinical training is in Marriage and Family Therapy. I specialize in working with individuals and couples as they seek to develop fulfilling connections within their relationships and also have significant experience working with children and teens.

I hope to provide a secure space for you to explore your emotions, relationships, and experiences in a way that will promote healing and growth.
