TPOW Therapists

It would be a privilege to be a guest in your journey of pursuing wellness

 

Jeanne-Marie Ritter, Ed.S

Jeanne-Marie is an experienced therapist with a master’s degree in counselor education. She is acutely aware of how a rapidly changing world can have a challenging impact on your life. You may be dealing with difficulties at home, school, or work, struggling with thoughts and beliefs that no longer serve you, feel caught off-guard by a life transition, or are trying to find a better sense of balance, Jeanne-Marie would love to support you. She will work with you to identify your strengths and values while coping with life’s demands amidst new or familiar feelings of sadness or anxiety. Her approach is person-centered, strengths-based, collaborative, and trauma-informed. She utilizes principles of mindfulness and intersectional feminist theory as a framework. Jeanne-Marie identifies with the LGBTQIA+ community as a cisgender queer woman, with advanced training serving this population. Jeanne-Marie enjoys working with individuals from diverse backgrounds, areas of origin, differing abilities, beliefs, and family types. She has immediate availability and her rate is $85. Jeanne-Marie is supervised by Elizabeth Hartshorn.

Jen Shelton, LPC

Dani is a masters-level student intern who is excited to apply her professional training by supporting folks ages 18 and up with individual therapy. Dani has particular interests in working with grief and loss, survivors of stroke/TBI, bereavement, trauma, anxiety, and depression. Together, Dani will support you with identifying a clear path forward in your life, smashing through the bricks and barriers in the journey to newfound strength. Dani works with folks to develop their strengths into powerful tools, and believes people can benefit from having support outside and in. Her goal is to provide a warm, safe, and positive atmosphere for clients as they journey through stressful times of transition. She is receiving regular supervision from Jen. Dani has several immediate openings and offers sliding scale rates of up to $70 per visit. 

Jen is a licensed professional counselor, the owner of The Pursuit of Wellness, and a trauma-certified therapist specializing in supporting folks with DID/OSDD and PTSD. Jen has master's degrees in counseling and psychology and has worked in a variety of mental health settings and clinical roles since 2011. Her approach is warm, engaging, and humorous when the timing is right!  In therapy, Jen uses a blend of principles and tools from evidence-based practices such as internal family systems (IFS), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), narrative therapy, attachment, and relational therapy, usually through the lens of trauma recovery. Jen has a 2-3 month waitlist for individual therapy. Currently, she is offering a creative writing group for people in the DID/OSDD community on Mondays at 11am or Tuesdays at 5pm.
