Jenna Matthews

(MA, LPC)

About Me

Hi, and welcome to BetterHelp! My name is Jenna Matthews. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) holding Master's degrees in Community Counseling and Child & Adolescent Psychology. I am a person-centered, strengths-based therapist. That means that I like to let you take the lead. We’ll start where you are, and together, create an action plan for moving forward. We will also focus on your many strengths and identify how we can apply them to your current situation to achieve your best outcome. I’m excited to get to know you better!

One of the major advantages of BetterHelp is that you have improved access to a counselor to work through day-to-day emotions, problem-solve challenges, and celebrate victories. I pride myself on being very available to my clients, so you should feel free to message me any time. I check my messages at least twice daily, seven days per week, and I'm available evenings and weekends, too.

I believe, as Pema Chödrön wrote, that "life is a good teacher and a good friend." Still, we all experience times in our lives where we may need some extra support. Wherever you are, it is important to know that you are never alone on your journey. I am honored to join with my clients as they navigate their paths, and I hope that you will let me walk with you, too.

I look forward to working with you!

Jenna is incredible, she's so intelligent and supportive. She has a great understanding of trauma and techniques to deal with situations. She always makes the time for me and is very client focused, I seriously cannot recommend her enough. ❤️

Jenna always respects my feelings and has positive and honest feedback. Jenna also responds to my messages within just a couple of hours, if even that long. I appreciate having her to talk to.
