Hi, and welcome to BetterHelp! My name is Jenica Rea (like "ray") and I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Alabama. I have been a therapist for 10 years and have practiced in states across the U.S. I enjoy working with all ages but have the most experience working with adolescents and adults, primarily in the areas of depression, anxiety, stress management, anger management, traumatic disorders, bipolar disorders, self-esteem/confidence, LGBTQ+ issues, and marriage and family issues. My most common modalities of therapy are Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Rational-Emotional Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness & Acceptance Therapy, in addition to Existential Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Positive Psychology, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
I also hold a strong belief that humans are incredible, infinitely valuable, thus have the ability to self-heal. I also believe that sometimes we just need someone to show us how. This is where I come in! I am here to show you and teach you new skills and techniques, guide you in applying them in the real world, then allow you to practice them and blossom into a better you!
I hope you allow me to guide you on this journey!

I don't believe that there are any good words to describe her nor her way of handling everything that you put in front of her. I mean it's like....she takes care to extract everything and then hands you a figurative mirror after each session....to look at someone who is still not the you that you know. But I am very hopeful that she will be able to meet the real me.
She doesn't pretend to have all the answers . Nevertheless, this doesn't mean that she can't help you get things figured out. Understanding is everything to me;and she is a wonderful at asking....and perfect at listening.
She is the perfect diary.

She is absolutely the best! The absolute most important thing is that she truly cares, and it shows. She is the perfect match for me. She is so pleasant and so genuinely concerned and caring about my well-being. She makes me feel understood for the first time in my life. I truly can't say enough good things about her.

First session was very comfortable. Covered a lot of territory and helped shaped future sessions.
