Jenna Lander

(LCSW)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Oregon with a Masters in Social Work from the University of Denver. I hold my LCSW license in Oregon, Colorado and Missouri. I have over 4 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting issues, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I have also helped many individuals who have experienced trauma or abuse.

My counseling style is calm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, individuality and compassion . My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic/holistic, solution-focused and Motivational Interviewing therapies. I also practice Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

This process can be an empowering experience giving you the insight to accept, change, grow and accomplish whatever you identify as your goals. I believe the therapeutic relationship can be a rewarding and remarkable experience. I take great care in the work I do to understand you and your needs. I would be honored to be invited to witness and walk with you on your journey during this chapter in your life story. Whatever your goal or motivation, therapy can be a rewarding adventure of acceptance and discovery. I believe that we all have our own answers; however, they are sometimes covered by life's challenges and stress. My role is to help you uncover the answers that make sense for you.

Every one of us can experience satisfaction and fulfillment in life. I am passionate about the field of psychology and therapy and am committed to being a consistent support to you as you navigate life’s challenges. I have a flexible schedule including days, evenings and weekends. I look forward to getting to know you!

Jenna is a sensitive, empathetic and skilled counsellor. She is a very good listener, and understands my emotions and issues well. I have been in individual and couples counseling with Jenna, and have received clarifying and supportive guidance in my difficult times. She is encouraging and has a kind ear and I'd gladly recommend her as a counsellor.

I have had two counselors on BetterHelp, Jenna being the best out of both. She responds in a decent amount of time, listens to what I'm saying and offers sound advice. She doesnt just repeat back everything I say, she actually tries to get to know someone. She has definitely helped my anxiety level and finding ways to manage my stress. I'm honestly thankful that she became my counselor on here.

Written by B.R. on Apr 14, 2018 after counseling with Jenna for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, grief, and self esteem

I really appreciate Jenna. She has been there for me through the worst time in my life. She gently guides me through each week with a new strategy to work on improving myself. She listens to me rant for a while hour if that's how I feel about that day. I don't know where I would be without her help, expertise and companionship. She is amazing.

She's very understanding. I have only had one live session so far but unlike other therapists I've encountered, she allows me to control the conversation and talk about what I need to talk about. Looking forward to working with her more.

Jenna Lander has been a big help to me. I only talked to her briefly for a few weeks back and forth, her very direct and unbiased counseling helped me pinpoint what was going on very quickly and helped me become comfortable with what I was feeling and thinking.
