Pathwise Counseling Staff


Melissa Fountain Jennings, MA, MCJ, LPC, LAC, MAC, ACS, CMIT

I have worked in the mental health field for 26 years for a non-profit mental health agency prior to starting private practice in 2017 under the name of Pathwise Counseling & Skills Center.  I have extensive experience working with adolescents and families.  My experience includes addressing such issues as depression, anxiety, trauma, substance use, conduct and oppositional behaviors, school performance, family and peer relationships, self-harming behaviors, suicidality and self-esteem.  My experience also includes working with adults addressing relationships, substance use, parenting, depression, anxiety and communication skills.  

My approach with all clients is within a framework lens of being Client-Centered, Strength-Based, Culturally Sensitive and Trauma-Informed.  Therapeutic approaches are evidenced-based and include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Reality-Choice Therapy, and Family Systems Therapy.  Experiental interventions such as Art, Play and Relaxation techniques are also used.

I have also served the community in the role of Clinical Supervisor for new counselor professionals since 2005 and am credentialed nationally as an Approved Clinical Supervisor.  Supervision services are currently available for those who have a Master Degree confirmed and are pursuing a Licensed Professional Counselor credential, as well as for those candidates pursuing CAC or Licensed Addictions Counselor credentials within the state of Colorado.    Pathwise Counseling accepts counseling student interns on a limited basis.  

I graduated from the University of Colorado, Denver in 2003 with a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology & Counselor Education and have maintained licensure in Colorado as a Licensed Professional Counselor since 2005 and as a Licensed Addictions Counselor since 2017.  I am nationally recognized as a Master Addiction Counselor since 2018 and an Approved Clinical Supervisor since 2019 as well.  I also earned a Master of Criminal Justice degree in 1998 from the University of Colorado, Denver and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology in 1991 from the University of Colorado, Boulder.  I am a Certified Motivational Interviewing Therapist and a Certified Addiction Professional.  I am a member of the Colorado Counseling Association, American Counseling Association, NAADAC The Association for Addiction Professionals and Colorado Association of Addiction Professionals.

In my personal time, I enjoy traveling around Colorado's vast beauty, fishing, gardening, art, spending time with my beloved husband, family & friends and cozying up with my four cats & a good book.
