Hi, I'm Jenae! Ever feel like you're carrying the world on your shoulders, thinking you have to handle everything alone, only to feel suffocated by it all? It's a common struggle, believe me. But here's the scoop: counseling isn't about getting a to-do list or being labeled "weak" for reaching out. It's about finding a cozy spot to unpack what's on your mind and in your heart. It's a sanctuary where you can just be you, no judgments or expectations. So, if you're feeling overwhelmed, know this: seeking help is a brave move towards healing. You're not alone in this journey. I'm here to guide you towards understanding your thoughts, emotions, and actions better. With an authentic, easygoing, and even enjoyable approach, I create a safe, judgment-free zone where you can freely talk about your concerns. Together, we'll develop a roadmap towards a more fulfilling life that aligns with your values and desires. If you're feeling the weight of stress in any area of life – personal, relational, familial, professional – I assist you in understanding the impact emotionally, physically, & mentally. You'll discover how to leverage your brain's capabilities to navigate life more effectively. Let's turn current problems into growth opportunities!

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session, we'll get to know each other. I'll explain what I do, and you can share what's been on your mind lately, helping me get to know and understand you more. We might start discussing short-term goals and beneficial tools for current needs. Finally, we'll discuss how you feel about our connection and if it's a good fit – honesty is key for your healing journey!

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Active listening, empathy, teamwork and collaboration, open, affirmation, naming strengths not yet seen, encourage individuals to 'fail forward'.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I love this treatment method as it helps connect the lines between one's thought process and actions following. We learn and grow to become more aware of these patterns, especially when harmful and wanting to change. As we understand our feelings, thoughts, and past experiences, we are able to recognize them in the moment and begin to respond in a more desired manner.

Strength-Based

Recognizing and capitalizing on one’s strengths and supports is crucial, especially when in a difficult season. Often individuals don’t recognize strengths within themselves and it’s eye opening when verbalized from an outside perspective

Internal Family Systems (IFS)

Imagine your mind as a big family with different members. Each member represents a part of you, like the responsible one, the playful one, or the anxious one. Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy helps you understand and communicate with these parts better, so they can work together peacefully, like a happy family. It's like becoming the CEO of your own mind and making sure everyone's needs are heard and met.
