Maryjane Reilly, RP, LPCC

Hello, I’m MARYJANE

Registered Psychotherapist and LPCC

I am passionate about the change that can happen through the therapeutic process and feel deep joy over getting to walk alongside someone in their process of healing. I believe in empowering those I work with to rewrite their own narrative through creating a safe space for non-judgmental, honest and hopeful conversation that ultimately reflects back to them their inherent value and worth.

I am a Chicago native and a lover of all things art and creativity. I grew up with a large Italian/Irish family (that all lived on the same street!) and have a passion for family, quality time and, of course, good pasta. I moved out to Denver for my Master’s and fell in love with the city and stayed since. I have a sweet dog that fills a significant amount of my time, but I also love to paint, spend a day in the mountains, or go to a concert or show.

I enjoy working with children of all ages, allowing them to have their own space and time to be seen and heard in a different, intentional way can bring another level of support that can be a great help when dealing with trauma or even processing everyday challenges. Through play, art and talk therapy, I believe I can be of service to helping them find their way using the best modality to fit their personality and story. I also am passionate about working through relational challenges in both individual and coupled clients to understand themselves and their partner and realize impact and importance of relationships in every facet of life.
I enjoy working with tweens and teens. As kids move into the teen years, having an outside source of support in therapy can help them understand their perspective better. With the work, I can help to give the tweens and teens a place to share what they are feeling and want for the future with their parents.

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art and Psychology from Judson University which allowed me to explore both my passion for creativity and art. While in school studying art, I realized what I loved about it was the artist, or the personhood expressed; the reason for why and how the artist chose to express in this way lead me to pursue my degree in psychology and eventually to get my Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Denver Seminary in Littleton. I am deeply interested in the ‘why’ of a person’s story and believe everyone is capable of writing a new narrative for themselves even through trauma and struggle. I am trained in Experiential Play Therapy and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as Attachment-Based Parent-Child Interaction Therapy.

I have worked in the foster care system as a caseworker, which educated me in a new way to the system at work with cases with a variety of generational trauma. I then worked as a therapist with Joy House, working with women and children who were victims of domestic violence, abuse and addiction. At Joy House I used Play Therapy and Narrative Therapy to help my clients process and grow out of their cycles of abuse and addiction. I have worked as a Child Protection Therapist at Savio House, where I focused on creating safety and stability for children and families through Narrative Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, TF-CBT, and Family Systems Therapy.
As a therapist, I am empathetic, creative and hold hope for each of my clients. I challenge when needed and walk alongside my clients as best I can, to remind them they are not alone in the process or journey to healing and change, advocating for them and sitting with them with whatever challenges they bring in.
Adults often overlook their own needs until they are in crisis. I hope to have clients that know they can come to me for non-judgmental support and maybe even a laugh or two. Working through previous trauma or dealing with something that is currently going on can be empowering. Helping someone that hasn’t felt that support in the past can provide such a positive impact on the person’s life.
