Jenifer Pittman

17 years of experience

Hello! I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the state of Missouri and Illinois. I have experience working with children, adolescents and adults from diverse backgrounds and in a variety of settings. Life comes with many challenges and we often find ourselves overwhelmed by what has come our way. Together we can identify concerns and find ways to move through life challenges. Through exploring and learning ways to manage emotions, I feel there are opportunities for growth. I believe it is important to identify individual strengths and will guide you towards positive self worth. Whether you are looking for short-term or long-term counseling, I will work with you to achieve a greater self-fulfillment.

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

Clients can expect to feel heard and understood after our sessions. I want to provide a safe, non-judgmental place where clients can express concerns and challenges. I want clients to feel hopeful, encouraged and empowered to make changes in their life.

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

I have over 17 years of experience working with people from diverse backgrounds. I I believe in blending therapeutic approaches and tailoring them to fit each individual’s needs. I have worked with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting issues, boundary work, conflict resolution, life changes, grief, improving coping mechanisms and addiction.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I believe in blending therapeutic approaches and tailoring them to fit each individual's needs. It is important to me that clients feel heard and understood. I create a safe, collaborative environment where clients can explore issues and concerns without fear of judgement. I frequently utilize cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused and mindfulness techniques. My experience includes working with individuals and families through significant life transitions, relationship issues, coping with loss, general emotional distress, anxiety, and addiction. I want to help clients reach their goals by focusing on strengths, identifying thoughts and behaviors that are interfering with their happiness and developing coping skills to improve their quality of life.
