About me

Hello there!

I am a licensed professional counselor and registered art therapist with experience with children, adolescents, young adults, and their families. I have provided counseling and art therapy services to various community non-profit organizations and schools in the DFW area. I have worked with clients with a wide array of concerns including stress and anxiety, depression, family conflict, relationship issues, trauma, and anger management.

When I'm not providing counseling services through Better Help or at the school I work for, I love to draw/paint/write, watch movies, spend time with my family, and read a really good book. I really enjoy nature and being outside - I sometimes have delusions that I can keep plants alive, so I dabble in gardening too.

My counseling style is relaxed and collaborative. I see my clients as the "driver" and myself as the "navigator" during the counseling process. I work with my clients to identify goals for treatment and action plans to help them reach their goals in a kind and compassionate manner. My approach blends strengths-based, cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and art therapy methods. I customize how I approach my clients so that I best meet their needs. I also often give clients "homework" to extend what we have discussed/discovered in our sessions. This could be in the form of practicing a particular skill, a journal prompt, or an art activity.

Reaching out for help with life's struggles takes a lot of courage. If you are ready to begin this journey, I am here to support, encourage, and guide you.

I look forward to working with you!

I could not have asked for better a Counselor. She is kind, intuitive, easy to talk to, and realistically optimistic. Her insight and knowledge is invaluable.

Jenni is a great counselor. She has really helped me change my life. Discussing my worries with my loved ones can be a challenge for me, but talking with Jenni feels like talking with my own conscience. She never tells you what’s “right” or “wrong,” rather, she helps you look inside yourself to figure out what you need. She has helped me using art projects and metaphorical discussion that really relates to me and helps me open up. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to find the courage to overcome their struggles.

Jennifer has been fantastic! In other counseling experiences the therapist's responses have felt rote or obvious. I have frequently left other therapists feeling like I could have asked myself the same questions. Jennifer always has an insight that I never would have thought of. In a matter of days I felt like I had made some progress down a healthier road, even if the road is a pretty long one.
