Hello! My name is Jenifer, and I am a licensed therapist in both Illinois and Iowa. I have a Masters of Science in Education in Counseling and a Bachelors degree in psychology from Western Illinois University. I also have a Certificate of Biblical Studies from the Vineyard Institute. I have worked as a Masters-level clinician in behavioral health since 2000, and have experience working in virtually every level of care--from residential, to inpatient, to outpatient Christian counseling, to community mental health. This has given me the opportunity to work with individuals at various levels in their mental health journey.
I offer Christian Counseling for those seeking a safe place to discuss their faith as it relates to their life struggles. I will see anyone at any place in their spiritual journey. If you are unsure of where you stand spiritually, that's OK. If you are confident of your beliefs, that's OK too! No matter where you are at spiritually, emotionally or mentally, I will meet you where you're at. The goal is not for us to compare theologies, but for you to have a safe place where God can be invited in to your healing process as it unfolds, in whatever way is comfortable for you. For example, I am open to including time for prayer or Scripture for those desiring that, but it is not required--YOU get to decide! It would be important to know that I am not a pastor and do not provide Biblical instruction, but rather provide counseling for those stuck in depression, anxiety, traumatic stress, or unhealthy coping patterns. Effective counseling is a collaborative experience; that means you and I will work together to identify opportunities for growth and healing, as well as the strengths you already have.
In terms of my counseling approach, I primarily practice Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, Art Therapy and Trauma-Centered therapy. I do give homework assignments from time to time so that you can continue your healing work outside session. My passion is helping people see what is possible so they can live life with more joy, peace, and wellness. I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Jenifer Regennitter. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Faithful Counseling might be different.
I came into counseling very hopeless and anxious. Jenifer listened to me, guided me, and helped me with all the goals that I wanted to achieve. Now I leave with hope and confidence. I am fully healed and don’t think it would have been possible without her guidance. Would 100% recommend Jenifer!
