Licensed Clinical Social Worker | MSW, LCSW
I am a Christian with a private practice here in Colorado Springs that I launched in the Spring of 2014. I provide care for individual, couples, and family mental health therapy to adolescents (15 and older) and adults. To know a little more about me, please feel free to look at my website: www.jeffplankeellcsw.com or www.plankeelcounseling.com. Briefly, though, my areas of specialty include mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and couples therapy. I have specific expertise in PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) treatment (especially combat trauma) using the two gold standard treatment approaches: Prolonged Exposure (PE) and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT). I also use Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). For marriage therapy, I use Integrated Behavioral Couples Therapy (IBCT) among other approaches. Otherwise, I am a cognitive behavioral therapist pulling from many different approaches specific to each client and presenting issue.
I also recently added an independent contractor to my practice. Jordan De Jong, LPC. If you prefer a female clinician, please consider scheduling with Jordan directly at our website: www.plankeelcounseling.com
I have a long history of practice working in foster care, teenage residential settings, substance abuse settings, community mental health care, and with our nation’s veterans. Locally, I was a therapist at the VA for 4 years and I was a therapist, clinical supervisor, and program manager with AspenPointe – Colorado Springs’ community mental health center. I attended Wheaton College for psychology undergraduate and the University of Maryland for my Masters in Social Work. I have my LCSW established in CO, and I really love what I do – especially when able to integrate the gospel.
