Jane Funke McGill, MA, LPC, NCC, CCTP
Preferred Name: Jane
I’m an Iowa farm girl who went into the Air Force after getting my undergraduate degree and my commission. Following my discharge from the Air Force, my husband and I settled in Colorado and this is where we’ve raised our family. I’ve gone through several career transitions in my life (which is why I love working with clients struggling with their own life transitions) and when I turned 50, I finally answered a long-time calling to study counseling…and that brings me to where I am today. My approach to counseling is very relationship oriented as you and I are in this together. After hearing your story and your needs and goals, you and I will develop your treatment plan because your buy-in is the key to your success. I am primarily a behavioral therapist, which means I look at how your thoughts and emotions impact your actions. So many of us are plagued with doubts, fears, poor self-image, and shame from myriad causes, including abuse and trauma, and these negative thoughts begin to control our lives, and especially our relationships with others. One of my greatest joys is when a client sheds the negatives and starts to realize that he or she is awesome in his or her own way. 🙂 I also employ techniques from several other therapies, including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing), mindfulness, reality therapy, and for my couples, relationship enhancement therapy, which focuses on developing important relationship and communication skills. As a graduate of Colorado Christian University and the Catholic Biblical School, I am well-trained at integrating faith into counseling. My Catholic faith is very important in my life and I work with both Catholic and Christian clients and couples, as well as with clients who are uncomfortable in bringing faith into a session, and that’s okay. Each of my clients are at different places in their faith journeys, and many struggle with faith. I’ve struggled with my faith and doubt in my life too. Therefore, you are accepted without judgment, and I will always meet you where you are at. My goal is to always make sure my counseling office is your safe place.
Education & Experience
I received my Masters in Counseling from Colorado Christian University. I have received further training in trauma and am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional Levels 1 & 2 (Complex trauma) and have taken additional training in Emotionally Focused Couple's Therapy as well in various EMDR trainings in attachment theory. A focus of my practice includes pornography addiction, especially as it relates to those with a history of sexual abuse. I have 9 years of professional counseling experience and in-depth experience working with the military, both active duty and veteran, community. I am a faith based counselor (Catholic Christian) and incorporate faith into my sessions as desired by my clients. I also am an affiliate faculty member at Colorado Christian University in their Masters in Counseling program.
