Sunrise Residential Treatment Center is very proud of the clinical work that they do with their students and families. Having a strong clinical team in place allows Sunrise to reach families in a way that results in real, lasting change. Jennifer Spangler, M.Ed., CMHC, and Clinical Director at Sunrise's Hurricane Campus is a crucial part of ensuring that the students' needs are met by supervising the clinical team and running an effective treatment team.
Jen grew up in Glenwood Springs, Colorado and moved to Utah to attend college. She graduated from Brigham Young University with a bachelor’s degree in Education, and furthered her education by gaining her master’s degree in educational psychology. Jen has worked as a therapist ever since focusing her career in private practice, hospital, and residential settings. "Jen is consistently optimistic and full of energy", says Craig Simpson, Sunrise Senior Clinical Director. "Her enthusiasm is contagious to those around her, and she is constantly laughing. She approaches problems with a willingness to jump in, get dirty, and figure things out. We are so lucky to have her leading our clinical team."
“I am grateful and humbled to be part of the Sunrise team", Jen says. "They are truly a family and I have come to adore every single person with whom I work! I knew the very first day of being on site that I needed to be here just as much as the sweet girls who call this place home. I love being witness to the personal and incredible enlightening path towards wellness upon which each of these young women and their family embarks. Nothing in this world means more to me than being part of a process that teaches others that they are stronger than they know and that they cannot be defined by the challenges they are leaving behind, still battling, or the ones that lie ahead.”
