About Me

Hi, and welcome to BetterHelp! My name is Jenica Rea (like "ray") and I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Alabama. I have been a therapist for about 9 years and have practiced in states across the U.S. I enjoy working with all ages but have the most experience working with adolescents and adults, primarily in the areas of depression, anxiety, stress management, anger management, traumatic disorders, bipolar disorders, self-esteem/confidence, LGBTQ+ issues, and marriage and family issues. My most common modalities of therapy are Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Rational-Emotional Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness & Acceptance Therapy, in addition to Existential Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Positive Psychology, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

My work in the Christian counseling space has mostly been surrounding any and all mental health issues but adding in how God can help with these issues. I have also worked a lot with the "why's" of being a Christian: Why do certain things happen in the world? Why am I anxious or depressed? What really is God's will for me? Of course, the list goes on! I feel this is such an important part of counseling, and I am thrilled when someone wants to add this into therapy. This is something sadly most of the world has left behind, and I don't want to pass anyone by who wants to include God in their healing!

I also hold a strong belief that humans are incredible, infinitely valuable, thus have the ability to self-heal. I also believe that sometimes we just need someone to show us how. This is where I come in! I am here to show you and teach you new skills and techniques, guide you in applying them in the real world, then allow you to practice them and blossom into a better you!

I hope you allow me to guide you on this journey!

Jenica has been so wonderful to work with! I feel at ease when speaking with her. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking a therapist.
