My name is Justin Ryan. I’m a licensed professional counselor and have been in practice for the past seven years. After receiving my Master’s of Arts degree in Counseling from Colorado Christian University, I then went onto to receive post graduate training in marriage and family therapy at the Denver Family Institute.
In my office, I believe in creating a safe and nurturing environment to promote healing and self-discovery, where relationships can begin to grow and develop a deeper meaning and connection. Where families can begin to heal and where trauma can start to be processed. My philosophy is that healing is possible, change can happen, and that we all can find inner peace. I believe in strengthening attachments, changing dysfunctional patterns, and building resiliency and self-awareness. I have received clinical and educational training in EMDR therapy and incorporate self-soothing skills in my practice. My greatest privilege is working with individuals who think nobody cares about them, couples in crisis, and families who feel judged and unsupported.
By far, the single most important and satisfying part of my life is being the dad to my two boys. I love my sons unconditionally, but I also know first hand how hard and emotional parenting can be. Sometimes what we need is just to be able to talk with someone who gets it and who can relate to the struggles of being a parent. As a therapist my focus is helping parent(s) connection with their child, increasing your internal awareness, and implementing coping skills to better manage stress and conflict. You’ll also learn about my rules of being a parent including the importance of reconnecting with your child.
