My Approach to Helping
Hello, I'm Jena. I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) with over 14 years of experience working as a therapist, and clinical case manager. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, transition of life issues, PTSD, grief/loss, TBI, and moral injury. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. My clients range from adolescents, adults, active-duty military, and first responders.
My counseling style is direct, honest, and interactive. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and motivational interviewing techniques. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
Finding the right fit with a therapist is the most important step in beginning your journey to healing and I strongly believe building rapport and trust is vital in our working relationship. It takes courage to start this process and you're on your way to taking the first steps towards a change. If you are ready, I’m here to help give you the tools to begin your journey on a new path.
I look forward to working with you!
