Hi there. I know how challenging it can be to handle the stresses and difficulties life throws at you. I want you to know I am here to support you and walk this path alongside you. I am a licensed clinical psychologist in Illinois with 8 years of experience working as a therapist. I specialize in working with neurodiverse individuals, such as those with autism, ADHD, and behavioral challenges, as well as LGBTQAI+ individuals. I have also worked with clients with a wide range of other concerns including anxiety, family relationship difficulties, and parenting challenges.
My therapy style is very warm, understanding, and collaborative. I believe that you are the expert on yourself, and I am an expert in psychology, so when we work together, we can figure out what will work best for you to help you live a life that is happy and fulfilling. My approach combines cognitive behavioral therapy and acceptance commitment therapy with elements of mindfulness and meditation within the family and community contexts.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you! -Dr. Jenna
