About Dr. Janelle Thompson

Why work with me?  I love what I do! I genuinely want to help people decrease their pain and suffering and find purpose in their lives. When you work with me, I’ll strive to provide you with a safe and nonjudgmental place to explore anything and everything that is on your mind. Whether you’re temporarily stressed due to your health, family/home life, work or school dynamic, or you have been coping with a mental health issue for years, I am here for you. My philosophy is that you are the expert on yourself, and our mutual goal is to make you as effective as possible in dealing with the challenges that come your way.

I specialize in empirically-supported treatments (aka – treatments that we know work, thanks to loads of research support). Specifically, I practice Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), treatments for trauma – Prolonged Exposure (PE) and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and interventions to facilitate changes in certain behaviors (such as tobacco and alcohol use, eating habits, sleep patterns, medication adherence, etc.) to help promote your overall health.

At some point or another, we have all been in pain and we have all benefited from another person’s assistance. So, what are you waiting for? Don’t suffer for longer than you already have. Call me. I’ll make the time.

Outside of the Office

Before moving to Colorado, I lived in Pittsburgh, Lexington, KY, Philadelphia, New Orleans, and Phoenix. In my free time, you can find me hiking around Colorado with my Labrador Retrievers, husband, and cat (who hasn’t quite gotten the hang of hiking yet), attempting to learn Spanish, or watching stand-up comedy.
