"I believe in a holistic approach to therapy so I integrate traditional talk therapy with experiential therapies that aid in better nervous system regulation, healing, and overall relief of symptoms. Experiential, brain-based healing & somatic therapies can help accelerate change and often reduce time in counseling. I specialize in biologically based healing, which assists in resolving trauma symptoms that are frozen or stuck in the body. I have training in EMDR (eye movement desensitization & reprocessing) and am a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP). I interweave these therapies and attachment-based support and repair into all my work with clients, which allows for a rich, gentle, connection-based healing approach. I have been in private practice for over 20 years, and prior to that time I worked in a variety of mental health settings. I see clients via telehealth. ***Please note when scheduling: Please DO NOT schedule yourself until you've talked with me first :) I am working from 2 different calendars, so its very important to email or call/text me 331-223-4170 to set up the Initial Intake -to avoid delays and double booking, as I may already be scheduled with someone from my other practice ... thanks for understanding and being willing to be flexible!

My ideal client is anyone that is seeking change and looking to create more balance in their life. My goal is to create a normalcy in the process of finding support during times when we need clarity. Whether or not there is an identified focus, I will walk individuals through gaining awareness and increasing skills to enhance life functioning through a client centered and empowerment focus. I work with adults in a diverse range of issues. My experience includes working with individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship issues, low self esteem, difficult life transitions, trauma (including working with women in a domestic violence shelter). I work with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and incorporate education and mindfulness approaches in conjunction to support each other. Educating individuals in areas of relationship abuse, post separation abuse and how to prepare for the legal system in high conflict is a passion of mine. My professional experiences include a large social service agency and the Alzheimer's Association, in addition to working in group practice providing psychotherapy. I also have a working knowledge to include a holistic background by receiving specialty training from the Chicago College of Healing Arts. I am a graduate of a High Conflict Divorce Coach Certification Program. It is an eight-week, intensive course that focuses on the difficult dynamics of high-conflict divorce and child custody battles. The program focuses on the intricacies of post separation abuse and coaches are trained that it only takes one toxic, abusive or personality disordered individual to create a high-conflict situation. I am also a Certified Coercive Control Clinician. I am a dog lover and you will often find my rescue dogs accompanying me in our sessions.

Hi, I am Jenn, and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Certified Telemental Health Provider, and the owner of Epijennetics Counseling and Consulting in Libertyville, Illinois. Epijennetics Counseling is located just outside of downtown Libertyville off of Milwaukee Avenue in Forum Square. You can read more about my work and practice at www.epijennetics.com. As a therapist, I hold the belief that we cannot fully understand mental health without first understanding the impact of our stories, our relationships, and our beliefs about ourselves, others, and the world. I am passionate about helping clients increase their self-awareness of these things so that they are more in touch with their feelings, needs, and desires, and are more equipped with the knowledge and tools to create the life that they want. By utilizing assessments such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator to better understand personality and the Young Schema Assessment to explore harmful thoughts and beliefs that came from previous experiences and messages received during childhood years, I help clients discover hidden obstacles that keep them from having the life they dream of. I have found that when we put in the work to make sense of ourselves and our stories, we not only heal and grow ourselves but also develop more compassion and increased understanding of others. Often this growth and healing process lessens mental health symptoms such as anxiety and depression and improves overall quality of life, as well as relationship quality. If you are interested in doing some exploring, I would love to hear from you! (Please make an in-office appointment if you are booking Couple or Family therapy sessions.)

The desire to be a parent runs deep through your soul, and is unlike any other feeling. As a compassionate and empathetic therapist, I understand the complex emotional and psychological impact that infertility and miscarriage can have. For women or men starting their journey to conception or who are having difficulty conceiving, I can: • Support you in maintaining hope, peace and positivity while navigating uncertainty and help you build resiliency as you work through obstacles. • Help you to recognize and access your deeper intuition, so you are better equipped to honor your body, spirit and mind with the highest intention throughout your journey. • Work with you on increasing clarity and purpose around your fertility journey, checking in with your emotional, psychological and spiritual alignment as you move forward on your unique path. • Utilize a holistic approach to address integrative lifestyle strategies that may be beneficial to your fertility path, including nutrition, meditation and sleep quality. • Assist you in addressing relationship difficulties that can arise out of the stress of fertility challenges, and help you develop strategies to increase intimacy with your partner and foster healthy communication. For women and men considering or undergoing assisted reproductive treatments: • Modern medical technologies can sometimes cause us to feel disconnected from the natural processes of conception and pregnancy. We can work together to source your inner compass to establish personal guidelines and boundaries around assisted reproduction treatments so that you can approach these decisions and situations from a place of empowerment and sovereignty. • I can help you learn effective coping strategies for stress, depression and anxiety that may arise from diagnosis and treatment. • We can work together on developing a toolbox for knowing how to respond to inquiries and comments from family and friends and navigating workplace considerations. • In between treatments, we can focus on building resiliency while preparing emotionally and psychologically for your next round of treatment. For women and men who have experienced reproductive loss: • The devastating and seemingly invisible pain of losing a pregnancy is unique in that it involves not only the loss of your baby, but also involves the loss of the future - and there is no accepted way to mark that loss. Sometimes it seems that friends and family members expect the person to move on quickly. Partners often grieve differently - and for men, the trauma of miscarriage is often overlooked. Also, some women may suffer guilt or shame associated with the loss that doesn't tend to occur with other types of grieving. • There is no universal template for grief. Together, we will address your unique needs as you work through your grieving process.
