Jasmyne Kettwick, MAMFT, LMFT, RPT-S, CSST
My name is Jasmyne, I am the Executive Director of Relate Family Therapy & Counseling, located in Centennial, CO. I began this practice out of the desire to help individuals, as well as the whole family heal in the same space with clinicians that are focused on the trauma from a systemic perspective. It is my goal to help people of any age build deeper and more meaningful connections with others while increasing self-awareness and self-acceptance through evidence-based therapy practices.
As a native Iowan, I am a Midwestern girl at heart. After living in many different parts of the country with my family, including Chicago, New York City, San Diego, and San Francisco, I fell in love with Colorado and decided to settle down here. My husband and I now live in the Denver area with three kids and one dog.
In addition to my work as a therapist, I also have a professional background in the performing arts. Growing up, I studied vocal performance and have acted on stages throughout the United States in various theater productions throughout my life!
“I truly enjoy helping families heal their relationships and form even stronger bonds. Watching a family that has been disconnected and disengaged come around and laugh together is a great moment for everyone.”
I began my educational endeavor at the University of Denver, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. Afterwards, I completed a Master of Arts degree in Marital and Family Therapy from Alliant International University, in San Diego, CA. I have continued my education since graduating by becoming a Registered Play Therapist, Youth Mental Health First Aid Provider, and Certified Systemic Sandplay Therapist.
Prior to establishing Relate Family Therapy & Counseling, I worked at Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego, California, where I utilized a biopsychosocial approach to providing the most complete model of care for the patients in the Outpatient Psychiatry unit. It was there that I began to recognize the value of working with the whole family to make the biggest impact on a child because I saw how complex trauma and needs were often worked through with families by addressing attachment concerns, or even issues with rules and roles in the family.
I love to empower children by playing on their level and providing them new ways to name how they feel and what they need. Together through play, creative expression, and exploration we can find ways to help them shift behaviors, work through pain, and create positive lasting change. These deep, meaningful connections extend through the whole family as I provide guidance and support to the other members of the child’s system, as well.
In addition to my work with children, I have extensive experience providing therapeutic support for families experiencing divorce or parenting struggles, and guiding individuals through their recovery from trauma, as well as assisting couples with communication skills and improving intimacy. I use a biopsychosocial lens to approach Structural Family Therapy and help you find unique ways to create change in your life.
“If you feel overwhelmed and don’t know where to start, I can meet you where you are and help you sort it all out. If you’re looking for a fresh perspective, I am happy to help!”
