About Me

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.

Jenica is a fantastic counselor. She listens unbiasedly and thoroughly, and responds with validating your feelings and giving constructive feedback and commentary. She's exactly what you would want in a counselor, in my opinion. Being that she listens, does not judge and guides and validates without being judgmental or demanding. She let's you lead the discussions and make your own decisions with some guidance and commentary from her. I highly recommend Jenica and am so grateful for her.

I have had the opportunity of having Jenica as my counselor and it was indeed a great experience having her to guide me and listening to my issues for the last 2 months . I must say she is the best, I received great advice from her , the way she speaks to you makes you have hope of things being better. I have made many changes in my life due to her counseling and I must say I will definitely recommend her to anyone having marital issues. I have made a lot of progress and this will be my last month and I would like to thank her for listening and guiding me in the right direction. Thank you again

Ms. Rea....what can I say that will illustrate how she has helped me know that I am not crazy....how she listened to me without judgement....how she felt my pain....how she made me feel safe......I don't have the vocabulary to explain how much she helped me

Jenica is professional, perceptive, empathetic, and a really great therapist. She's direct but kind, which is what I needed. She's not one who just does small talk, she works to get to the root of issues and opened my eyes to a lot of things in my life that I was studiously ignoring. I highly recommend her.

I've only been talking with her for a couple of weeks but she actually listens to what you have to say and isn't judgemental about it. I would recommend her to anybody.

Although I’m just beginning to work with Jenica, I feel like I can trust her which extremely imperative for me. It’s still early , but it’s working so I’m sticking too it as long as my funds allow.

Work with me!
