In addition to private practice Jenn has experience working with diverse populations in a community mental health agency.

Jenn believes in building a strong therapeutic alliance and relationship built on trust with her clients. After building a relationship it is her goal to develop mutually assigned upon goals. She uses cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), client-centered approaches, as well as using an eclectic approach to tailor therapy to an individual’s unique needs and challenges.

Jenn is currently under supervision to become a registered play therapist, her supervisor is Dr. Greta Zuck in Raleigh, NC. She has attended extensive training in the area of trauma focused-cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), and provides this for children and adolescents who have been exposed to traumatic events. In family counseling she enjoys improving positive communication between family members and members accomplishing small fun tasks within the therapeutic setting. She believes families need to have small successes together to face the bigger obstacles in life with greater confidence. Christian Counseling is available upon request of the client.
