Welcome! My name is Jennifer and I am a licensed professional counselor and certified rehabilitation counselor.
Eight years in the mental health field has exposed me to many wonderful people in a variety of settings. My professional experience began in residential group homes and then out-patient care. I have most experience working with people who have anxiety, depression, complex trauma, schizophrenia, and intellectual disabilities. For the past nine years, I have volunteered as a mentor for people who are incarcerated through a national Bible study outreach program.
Perhaps the most important lesson I have learned is that, each person already possesses gifts and talents to overcome even the bleakest circumstance. My passion is to help you uncover the emotional gifts that may have been buried under the corrosion of negativity. This lesson drives me to learn more about each person I am fortunate to meet. I strive to always provide a supportive environment as we work together. At times, I will ask difficult questions that are designed to spur your growth and development to the next level.
I know there is a great need for LGBTQ counselors. However, I do not have training in LGBTQ issues and can't provide treatment as it is outside my scope of practice.
This world is rapidly changing, and this can become overwhelming for many. I believe in planning for tomorrow but celebrating victories and examining defeats on a day by day basis. We can work through emotions, concerns, and often discover root causes to break the power they hold over you.
My role as therapist, is to guide and walk with you along your pathway. Using your values and your priorities as the roadmap to YOUR success. My primary approach is a client-centered approach with motivational interviewing techniques incorporated. I always tailor the treatment to your needs. These are your sessions; I will use my training and experience to help guide you along your journey. Each discussion will promote development of the terrific qualities you already possess in order to help you flourish! Any time you have questions in general or the about the process, please let me know.
