Jenn uses art in therapy sessions to: help reduce anxiety, work through emotions that are unspoken, learn and practice new skills, and to create tangible reminders of therapy skills. She values the role of art in helping therapy skills generalize into a person's life outside of the therapy session. She uses CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and person-centered therapy to process and can help manage depression, self-esteem and anxiety. She aims to create a safe place for clients to share their stories with her and encourages them to express themselves authentically, while challenging them to practice difficult behavior changes. Jenn has experience working with children and teens with: anxiety, anger, oppositional behaviors, grief, trauma, low self-esteem, and who are questioning their own identity.
She teaches clients to advocate for themselves (when needed) and find their true confident voice. She is skilled in communicating with parents of her clients and teaching them how to support their children so that the entire family relationships are improved. Jenn is under the supervision of Chelsea Harris, LPC, ATR-BC, CPCS.
