My Approach to Helping
When your relationships breakdown the pain can feel unbearable.
Your relationships are central to your life and your wholeness. It seems like it won?t be that hard when you find someone who you love and who loves you?it feels like it will just all work out?after you finish school or when the kids get a little older or you get the big promotion.
But then you might find yourself in some very stuck places despite your best efforts. You might have repetitive conversations with your significant other ? one of you might pull away and shut down or maybe criticize and be angry. During these times, you might feel
You might feel like there is no way that things can change and get better. You might have no idea where to begin in creating change in your relationship and your very honest efforts to make positive change might have just felt like a huge failure. You might have thought about couples counseling before but don?t know if it would even help. If you are in this place, it might seem impossible to even want to try something else.
But there is hope and relationship help is available.
Your relationships are one of the biggest investments that you will make in your entire life. The fulfillment that you feel from your relationships with your partner, children, family, friends, and with yourself are the important things that life is made of. Almost none of us, however, have learned how to have loving and resilient relationships. Somehow, we believe that these kinds of relationships will just happen with virtually no effort on our part.
In no other aspect of our life, however, is this true.
If you want to be a dentist, you go about taking the steps to achieve the necessary schooling and credentialing in order to be a dentist. If you want to retire when you are 55 years old, you map out a plan as to how much to save and where to invest in order to achieve your goal. But when it comes to relationships?most of us believe that it is just the luck of the draw!
You can feel
You can be deeply engaged in fulfilling, dynamic and resilient relationships. You can feel safe in your relationships to bring up how you feel, what you are experiencing, and what you want. You can change and transform which means your relationships will also change and transform in to something that you want to have. Couples counseling can be a first step to achieving this change.
My job is to help provide you tools to move you from where you are now to where you want to be!
Research from the leading relationship experts, including Dr. John Gottman & Dr. Julie Schwartz Gottman, and Dr. Harville Hendrix, tell us that the answer is not about not having conflict ? the answer is how to have conflict well and how to communicate our experiences and feelings to our partners and how to listen to ourselves and to those with whom we are in relationship.
In my years of experience, I rarely meet anyone who was taught how to do this. There in lies our trouble.
Hi, my name is Jenny Glick and I help individuals and couples feel more joy, acceptance, empowerment and vitality in their lives. My specialty is guiding people to identify what they want in their lives, in their relationships, and in themselves so that we can make it happen. I am a premier Denver couples counselor offering services tailored to your needs.
My areas of specialty include:
Individual Transformational Work
Spiritually Grounded Therapeutic Perspectives
Here are some things that set me apart as a therapist:
*Many people are worried about a therapist aligning with their partner and ganging up against them. It is my job to hold a space for healing, transformation, and compassion for you and your partner. Period.
*I believe that therapy can be fun and that we can laugh in our time together. I often hear from clients that they didn't expect to have fun in therapy -- they didn't expect that we could laugh and have a sense of lightness around some issues that feel so heavy and challenging. Sometimes laughter and lightness can go a long way in our letting go and transformational process.
*I show up 110% and invite you to do the same. Individuals and couples can languish in therapy for years. Sometimes, it is necessary to spend a lot of time processing in this way. However, for many people, concentrated, laser-focused therapy is the jumpstart that they need to get to where they want to be in their lives and their relationships. I offer VIP sessions for these individuals and couples to maximize their success and transformation.
