Janae McClure, Graduate Student Intern Supervised by Leslie Bley, LPC-S
Janae is not currently taking new clients.
I have always been fascinated by the ability of people to overcome or triumph during hardship and challenge. The neuroplasticity of our brains and the way it allows us to create and modify neural connections, replacing unhealthy thoughts or behaviors with new healthy patterns, is very interesting to me. I hold so much hope for my clients and the incredible changes that can be made within them when given a safe space to share and work through hard things. I view counseling as a joint effort between client and counselor to navigate these challenges and to find ways to bring healing, hope, and healthy connections with those in their lives.
After graduating from Texas A & M University with a degree in psychology in 1998, I spent time working with foster children suffering with emotional disturbances and various psychological traumas. Having endured my own childhood trauma, I developed a heart for helping other people struggling to overcome traumatic experiences and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I am open to working with various mental health challenges and life transitions; including military personnel, spiritual abuse survivors, cult survivors, clergy, spouses of clergy, victims of sexual assault, and victims of other traumatic experiences. My approach is a mix of person-centered and cognitive behavior therapy, with an emphasis on attachment theory and Internal Family Systems. I am currently a graduate student at Colorado Christian University working towards a Master of Arts in clinical mental health counseling.
