Dr. Jen Bachtold Practice Description
Looking for a new therapist can be quite daunting and time consuming, can't it? I understand how important and crucial it is to find a suitable match. I pride myself on creating a safe, supportive, and open environment for my patients. I work with those struggling with depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, anger, emotional disturbances, change of life transitions, chronic pain, relationship concerns, work burnout, personality disorders, intra/interpersonal issues, and general stressors. I utilize evidenced-based therapy including an inclusive and integrated humanistic model that tailors therapy specific to your needs. I believe that building a rapport is the most important aspect of the therapeutic connection between therapist and patient. I will meet you where you are at. If you are unsure of therapy, we will explore it together and I will assist you on your therapeutic journey! I am here to help you cope with whatever you are experiencing no matter how big or small! I have worked with an array of patients from adolescents to elderly to those in the foster care system, corrections and justice system, detox, residential and outpatient centers, private practice settings, and in-home care. I currently work with adults, those suffering from addiction, depression, anxiety, grief, chronic pain, emotional disturbances, change of life transitions, relationship problems, intra and interpersonal issues, trauma, anger, first responders, law enforcement, and every day stressors! I have experience delivering evidenced-based therapy including providing individual short-term and long-term psychotherapy, diagnosis, and treatment planning. Whether you are new to the therapy process or if you are in search of a new therapist, I am here to help guide you on this path! Providers in my office are allies of Racial-Justiced and LGBTQIA+.
