My name is John Jurica (rhymes with eureka) and I have  expertise working individuals, especially men, trying to improve their relationships and their lives. Issues such as improving communication, managing anxiety, managing substance use, and finding meaning in life are my primary areas of focus. Having sought out extensive multicultural training in gender and LGBTQ+ issues, I have experience working with folks from all backgrounds.

I use a combination of Interpersonal Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and existential therapy.

With experience collaborating with university engineering departments and working in mental health tech, I understand the perspectives of people in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Helping people transform abstract concepts like thoughts or emotions into tangible and quantifiable information is particularly useful in developing the insight to communicate effectively.

I am a Licensed Psychologist practicing in Colorado (License PSY.0005453). I earned a PhD in Counseling Psychology from Colorado State University and have over eight years of experience providing clinical services, supervision, and program development. My experience spans multiple treatment settings, including university counseling centers, substance abuse treatment, and private practice.

When I'm not doing psychologist or health tech things, I love hockey and playing piano. Wandering the mountains is also something I spend a lot of time doing. In fact, all the photos on this website come from my time in the mountains.
