At Grit Therapy, we help women move through the times of their life that feel overwhelming, scary, and painful
so they can live their most
full, vibrant, and joyful lives
Find your grit
Find your joy
Welcome! I'm Jane Thatcher, LCSW. I created Grit Therapy because I believe that every woman has an inherent ability to heal, nurture, and birth new life, even in her darkest moments. I work with women experiencing:
Work/life balance and stress
Loss of meaning or purpose
After working with girls, women, and families in a variety of settings, I began to realize that so many of our inherent qualities as women personify the true meaning of Grit: courage and resolve; strength of character.
However, I also realized that women are often cut off from their inherent creativity, power, and well-being by the demands of their home and work life, and by the messages they receive from the world.
I am passionate about connecting with women wherever they are on their journey and helping them move through the dark moments of their life to reclaim their power and joy. I truly believe that you have all the grit that you need to build your best life.
As a therapist and social worker, I have worked in a range of settings including residential treatment facilities, public schools, community centers, and private practice. I hold a Bachelor's of Social Work from the University of Utah, a Master's of Social Work from Loyola University Chicago, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Colorado. As a music and creative writing educator, I have had the chance to teach creative humans ages infant on up, both privately and in the community.
I pull from the fields of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Existential Therapy, Feminist Therapy, and Positive Psychology to create an experience that is collaborative, client centered, and grounded in well-researched, best practices.
In my spare time, I like to play rock n' roll, write poetry and music, read, garden, and spend time with my family and friends. I live in an old farmhouse in Denver with my husband and two cats.
