I’m Jeri Yingling, a Licensed Professional Counselor, Registered Play Therapist and Certified AutPlay Therapist based in beautiful Woodland Park, Colorado.
Children experiencing trauma, anxiety, depression and other challenges communicate with us through their behaviors. I specialize in helping parents and children understand the meaning and purpose behind those behaviors. I help children build the resiliency they need to overcome past challenges and thrive at home, in school and in their communities.
I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology from Allegheny University and Master's degrees in Human Development and Family Studies (Kansas State University) and Mental Health Counseling (Capella University). I have spent the last 26 years serving military families in several capacities including a Military & Family Life Counselor, a parent educator for the Military Child Education Coalition and caretaker and director of child development centers at various installations around the world.
