Ashley A. Jarvis, Psy.D., HSP

 

Licensed Clinical Psychologist │Director of Colorado Mental Wellness Collective

License #PSY0004770 (Colorado)

License #PSY004137 (Georgia)

I was raised in Atlanta, Georgia and have lived on both the east and west coasts of the U.S. before settling into life in Colorado. I enjoy traveling and exploring new places. I have worked in Mental Health Care for over a decade; initially discovering my love for psychology early in high school. I am passionate about helping others find ways to develop mental wellness.


Outside of providing therapy, I spend time with friends and family and enjoy hiking, skiing, practicing yoga, running, and relaxing at home with my pets.

Qualifications

Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.) from Nova Southeastern University

Master of Science in Clinical Psychology from Nova Southeastern University

Master of Arts in Experimental Psychology from California State University, Sacramento

Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with Cognate in Speech Language Pathology from University of South Carolina

I am credentialed with the National Register of Health Service Psychologists; this is a national distinction that credentials psychologists who meet strict requirements for education, clinical experience, and who demonstrate a high level of ethical conduct and integrity in the profession.

In addition to owning a therapy practice, I also work as a Certification Manager for Inpatient and Outpatient Services at All Health Network at the Acute Treatment Unit and Wellness Center and Crisis Stabilization Unit in Littleton.

My Training Experiences

I completed an APA-accredited internship at South Florida State Hospital and went on to complete postdoctoral training at Augusta University/East Central Regional Hospital. I have worked in a variety of settings, including Inpatient Psychiatric Hospitals, Acute Treatment and Crisis Stabilization Units, Long-Term Care and Rehabilitation Centers, Residential Treatment programs, University Counseling centers, and Intensive Outpatient Substance Abuse programs. Additionally, I have experience in Forensic Psychology; conducting NGRI risk assessments and Competency Evaluations and running various groups. I currently hold an active license as a clinical psychologist in both Colorado and Georgia.

After completing my undergraduate degree, I completed my master’s training to build a greater understanding of how to determine if treatment is evidenced-based (aka proof that it actually does something!) and conducting experimental studies to better understand the statistics underlying efficacy. After completing this degree and working in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis, I went on to complete a five-year program to obtain my doctoral degree. This included 4 years of clinical practice and supervision in different settings, including an American Psychological Association approved internship site, all of which accumulated to over 4,000 hours. Following graduation, another 2,000 hours of practice and supervision is needed before sitting for the National Exam to obtain licensure.
