Super understanding and caring. You can tell Jena genuinely cares about you.

Written on May 06, 2023 after therapy with Jena for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, bipolar disorder, and coping with life changes

Jena is a very good therapist and I would like to continue services with her but I will not be able to if payment options aren’t more flexible.
I don’t like how the app immediately deactivated after my 3 sessions through EAP. I couldn’t communicate with anyone. Hope to figure something out.

I have only had one session with Jena, but based on that session, I feel she is a very capable and intuitive therapist.

Jena is understanding and so supportive. I feel like I’m just two sessions with her I’ve learned so much.
