My Approach to Helping
Hello my name is Jenny and I have worked at Touchstone Counseling in Ozark for 12 years. I received my first Master's in Criminology from Missouri State University in 2009, and I just graduated with my second Master's in Counseling. I have certifications in mediation, Parenting Coordination, and the Prepare Enrich program . During my internship at Missouri State University, I worked with couples, individuals, teens and children.
A majority of my current practice consists of high achieving teens who are struggling with anxiety, sleep issues, or bullying, all while trying to figure out who they are and what they want to do with their life. I have worked with many couples on communication, healthy fighting skills, and grief due to the loss of a child or loved one. I am unable to take insurance at this time, so I work with clients who have high deductibles, no insurance, or some who would rather not bill their insurance company.
My style is to always try to meet you where you are at, and address and tackle issues together. You are your own best expert, and hold more knowledge about yourself than anyone else. Sometimes it just takes talking to another person to figure things out, or setting weekly goals to help bring about positive life changes. I have worked with quite a few clients and have found a connection and respect for all of them. It has been a privilege to see the impact counseling can have on someone in pain. Slowly mental health is becoming more of a talked about and addressed issue. Stop living each day in pain, fear, or sadness…you deserve to feel happiness with who you are today!
