Grace Skattebo, MA, LPCC

Therapist

I am a counselor who serves families and individuals of all ages and backgrounds. I believe healing is best encouraged in a supportive and genuine relationship. I work very hard with each person to develop this connection and love watching my clients grow and thrive as a result.

At Grit Therapy, I work with individual adults experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, loss, relationship issues, and work/life balance issues. I also work with children and teens ages 8+ and their families. I engage my younger clients both in individual work, and family work as I feel strongly that children and teens thrive in healthy family settings. Additionally, I offer family therapy for families of all ages.

My approach to therapy is person-centered and based on the needs of the individual or family I am working with. I incorporate a combination of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), trauma-informed cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), interpersonal therapy, mindfulness, and somatic therapy in my practice.   

 

I was born and raised in rural Iowa where mental health services were severely limited. My passion to work in this field is in part driven by these roots. In my free time, I love spending time with my pug, Jimmy, soaking up the Colorado sunshine, and playing video games.

I work with all ages to explore issues related to anxiety, depression, relationship/marriage conflicts, family issues, trauma, substance use, gender identity, non-traditional families, LGBTQIA+, persistent mental health disorders, and more.  

At Grit Therapy I see individual children and adults as well as couples. As a therapist, I foster an atmosphere that is safe, culturally competent, empathic, challenging, and open. My therapeutic style is eclectic. I utilize a variety of approaches including client-centered, cognitive-behavioral, family/crisis interventions, harm reduction, behavior modification, mindfulness, exposure therapy, and more 

have worked in a variety of settings as a social worker/therapist including outpatient mental health, crisis intervention, behavioral health assessment, medical social work, and skilled nursing facilities. In addition to working at Grit, I’m currently an elementary school counselor in the Summit School District.  

 

I was born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in a small-town west of the city. My family and I decided to make a monumental change by moving to Colorado in July, 2021. I enjoy hiking, camping, exploring new areas, learning, and re-connecting with nature.

Emily Wheeler, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

I am a marriage and family therapist who helps teens, adults, couples, and families get more out of their lives and relationships. I believe that deep healing can happen in supportive relationships which is why I focus on a strong, trusting connection with my clients. My goal is to create a space where you can listen to your  own inner wisdom and make decisions from a place of clarity and confidence.

I work individually with teens ( ages 13+) and adults as well as with couples and families as a whole. My style is curious and non-judgmental. I am not afraid of challenging my clients to try on new perspectives and to ask difficult questions. Additionally, I love to help my clients recognize and build upon their strengths

 

My orientation to therapy is influenced by Gestalt, AEDP, attachment theory and somatic therapy. I try to bring a multicultural and systemic lens to all that I do.

In addition to working at Grit, I work as a school counselor at a small high school in Leadville, CO. I am passionate about providing individuals with unique educational opportunities that encourage authenticity and connection. I live in Leadville and in my free time I enjoy exploring the mountains by foot, ski, and bike and appreciating the natural wonders of Colorado and beyond.

Jane Ambro, LCSW

Therapist

I am a licensed clinical social worker with twenty years of experience with a wide range of clientele. At Grit Therapy, I help adults gain the skills to work through depression, anxiety, grief, relationship issues, anger and chronic illness. I believe that life is short, and you deserve to live it doing what you love with a smile on your face. However, I also know that our fears, sadness, and pain can easily keep us from living our best life. Through an open, honest therapeutic relationship, I can help you overcome the barriers to joy and connection. 

 

 I have worked with people ages 0 - 100 in the fields of Adult Psychotherapy, Chronic Illness, Pediatric Oncology, Hospice, Hospital Social Work, Case Management, and Child Protection. This experience allows me to develop tailored therapy goals with my clients. My approach is deeply rooted in dignity and respect. I help my clients identify and develop their strengths, so they can feel empowered to make lasting, healthy changes. 

 

I was born and raised in Upstate, New York. After attending college in Indiana I continued to travel West and settled in Colorado where I have lived ever since. I have a love for the outdoors and when I am not working or spending time with my family, you can find me running, camping, snowboarding, and looking for the next festival. I look forward to continuing to explore this beautiful state.

Jane Hahn, LCSW

Therapist/Owner

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and the owner of Grit Therapy. I treat women experiencing depression, anxiety, perinatal mood disorders, PTSD, religious trauma, and low self esteem. I named my practice Grit Therapy because I believe that it takes true grit to get help and grow. 

 

Grit: courage and resolve; strength of character.

 

I realize 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. 

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. 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 live in Denver with my husband and two cats. In my spare time, I like to camp and hike, spend time with my friends and family, and play rock n roll.

I am the practice manager at Grit Therapy. I help clients get connected to their therapist and schedule their sessions. I enjoy working with people in the community as a musician and creative arts facilitator, and I am excited to also be working with the Summit County community for Grit Therapy.

I studied music at Metro State College and have spent most of my career playing music and engaging the community in the arts. When I'm not working, I enjoy motorcycles, camping, volleyball, and the endless search for the best tacos in town.
