My name is Jenelle Hoyt, I am an award winning Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) with over 10+ years of experience in the helping profession. Thank you for beginning this journey with Better Help. As a therapist, I am proud that you've decided to take steps that you believe will enhance your life and allow yourself to heal. I would like to assure you the counseling process is here to foster your growth. I will listen to you as you share your struggles and your strengths and challenge you to identify whether your thoughts are positively serving you so that you can view life more positively. We will process strong emotions and certain aspects of experiences that you have not dealt with to obtain a greater awareness. My primary focus is to assist clients with developing strategies and tools to perhaps re-frame your story to cope with the past and create a bright future.
As a therapist, I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, self-esteem and career challenges, as well as emotional and physical trauma to cite a few. I specialize in helping individuals who are not only feeling the stressors of life but also unsure of how to cope with or change these stressors in a positive way. We will work together to create attainable goals that will be reviewed and assessed consistently to ensure that they align with the vision of who you are and want to continue to be.
I maintain a judgment-free space that is challenging, encouraging and enlightening. I believe in a process that is positive and retrospective. My approach integrates a multiplicity of practices such as Solution-Focused, Cognitive-Behavioral, Motivational Interviewing and Psychodynamic interventions. I personalize each treatment to meet your individual need.
Congratulations on taking time to empower yourself by employing therapy to make significant changes in your life. I look forward to working with you.

Jenelle is great.! I love how patient she is and her listening skills. I also thoroughly respect how she ask me to set my own goals after each session in preparation for the sessions to come. It enables me to take accountability for my own progress and that is ultimate goal.
