In Jaurene’s words:

Welcome, I’m a licensed Aurora therapist / certified addictions counselor providing individual/ family/ couples/ child / substance abuse therapy and relapse prevention. For 25 years I’ve had the pleasure of helping people from various diverse backgrounds. My style is solution focused, strength based. Specialized in mood disorders (depression/anxiety), relationship issues(couples/divorce/families & children) and dual diagnosis (addictions/mental health).

I have EMDR training, see people suffering from PTSD, and love helping children, couples, adults, and families.

I am here to cater to your needs. My style is eclectic by nature and I have been trained in various theories. I use the one most appropriate for each individual I am treating. I lean towards the Choice Theory, Reality Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy because these tend to help clients quickly find what they want and wish to accomplish.

At my Aurora therapy office, I help my clients look at how realistic and attainable their desires and needs are; then we take the steps needed together to explore “wants verses needs.” My role is to assist in the elimination of unproductive behavior by revisiting and targeting what has not worked and what does work. The goal is to promote positive, productive CHANGE.

As needed I use the Client Centered approach (listening and being supportive), as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (retraining thoughts, emotions, and behaviors) and Dialectic Behavior Therapy (teaching a way of noticing but not responding to irrational thinking). By any means ethically necessary, I aim to help those who need to be set free from past baggage. For those who suffer from PTSD, I have EMDR and ART training. My services are designed with YOU in MIND. I Specialize in PEOPLE and work well with all races and ethnicities.
