About me

Hi, it's so nice to meet you. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 18 years of experience working as a psychotherapist, continuing education provider, professor and children's media consultant. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, agoraphobia, postpartum anxiety/OCD, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and ADHD. I have also helped many people who just need extra support during a change-of-life moment.

My counseling style is positive and results-driven. I believe in building on a foundation of trust and respect while adding tools to your emotional tool-box. I like to think of my approach as "spiraling up". I will work with you as an individual and not in a one-size-fits-all modality. I often use a combination of cognitive-behavioral interventions, positive psychology, mindfulness and listening in a supportive, non-judgemental manner.

A good fit with a good therapist can be life changing. It can help you live your life in the best version of yourself. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support you and look forward to our work ahead!

Great listener

Jenae is a very down-to-earth counselor who is a great listener and offers great advice. She helps to connect the dots of why you think the way that you do and has helped me realize I am stifling my feelings! I am thankful for my sessions with her and would definitely recommend her to anyone needing some help.

Jenae is amazing and helps me deal with some intensely difficult issues --- I'm in my fourth month and have gotten to the point where I was comfortable sharing the most difficult things I am trying to deal with -- I have tried therapy before and not been able to get nearly as comfortable as I needed to get in order to start dealing with the actual issues I need to.

She's great. Does an amazing job of making you not feel judged or weird or bad etc... which was my fear going into therapy

I have only been speaking with Jenae for a a short while, but she has really helped me in coping with what I am currently struggling with and understanding my fears, anxiety and frustrations. She makes me very relieved that I signed up for better help and am happy to me matched with her!

Janae has been really great with my agoraphobia. I love how she has a plan and multiple strategies for me. It’s very proactive and I have definitely found some relief since talking to her.
