    Dr. Jacqui Grantland (she/her) 

    Clinical Director/Owner

    Welcome to Inner Peace Therapeutic Services. I’m Dr. Grantland, the founder and owner of IPTS. I hold a Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision from Walden University and an M. Ed in Counselor Education from Texas Tech University. I have had the pleasure of working in the mental health field for over 20 years with a diverse clientele. My approach to therapy is grounded in empathy, acknowledging the uniqueness of each person’s journey. It is an honor to hear your story and walk this journey with you, witnessing your courage and resilience as we navigate the path toward healing together.

    Utilizing a range of therapeutic techniques including EMDR, CBT, CPT, Hypnotherapy, and TF-CBT, I tailor my approach to fit your specific needs. I have a passion for servicing the military community, being a U.S. Air Force Veteran, and a spouse of a career Air Force Veteran. Being in both roles has given me insight into the challenges faced by the military community. 

    I am also passionately dedicated to assisting individuals with eating disorders/disordered eating through the Healthy at Every Size (HAES) model. This framework is a fundamental aspect of my practice, emphasizing body acceptance, challenging societal and personal beliefs about health and weight, and focusing on well-being rather than weight loss. My commitment to the HAES model ensures a supportive and judgment-free environment, encouraging clients to develop a peaceful relationship with their bodies and food. 

    I am also committed to mentoring the next generation of counselors and therapists. I am an LCPC supervisor and provide supervision for graduate and post-graduate LGPCs. In addition, I am also an Adjunct Professor in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program at Walden University. I currently accept BCBS, Cigna, Aetna, United HealthCare, Optum, VA, Tricare, some EAP, and private pay.
