Hi. I'm Jason Ledlie, LPC
A bit about my background
My study of psychology began as an undergraduate student at Texas A&M University. Though my original draw to the study of psychology came from the desire to do clinical work, I nurtured a fascination with cognitive psychology during my sophomore year. This compelled me to apply for an undergraduate research assistantship, which I was awarded, and that I enjoyed for the whole of of my junior and senior years. In turn, this exposed me to involvement in research exploring memory, bilateralization of the the brain's language centers, and a focused examination of the importance discourse plays in how we arrive at conceptual understandings for novel noun-noun combinations. What the? I know, right?
The summer following graduation, from a recognition of the need for pause, I worked at the Bar Lazy J Guest Ranch in Parshall, Colorado. This predated the reliable technological connectivity so readily available today, and it was a needed retreat. In the solitude of that season, I found myself coming full-circle and back to my interest in clinical work. I returned home following the conclusion of the summer, and I began applying to masters programs with a clinical focus.
I undertook my graduate studies within the Professional Counseling Program at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. In the time following completion of my Master of Arts in Professional Counseling, I've dedicated my focus to the practice of understanding and treating complex developmental trauma and disordered attachment. It will be a life-long pursuit.
To that end, I've undertaking training in Trust-based Relational Intervention (TBRI), TheraPlay, Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB), sandtray, and therapy incorporating equines. And, I continue to study in these areas.
I am currently credentialed as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in both Colorado and Texas.
