Jennifer brings a collaborative approach to therapy in a non-judgmental environment where clients are empowered to be their whole selves and move toward healing and growth. She believes the reason people begin counseling can point toward a deeper story that we can explore and work through together. She values the role of art in helping therapy skills generalize into a person's life outside of the therapy session. She uses person centered therapy to process and 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, teens and adults with: anxiety, anger, grief, trauma, low self-esteem, and who are questioning their own identity. Jennifer specializes in ages from preteen to adults. Jennifer received her bachelor’s degree with a double major in Secondary Education and History from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She also earned her master's degree in Clinical and Mental Health Counseling from Wake Forest University. In her free time, Jenn enjoys spending time with her husband and family but also reading while drinking a good cup of coffee.
Jenn is under the supervision of Chelsea Harris, LPC, ATR-BC, CPCS.
