Jennifer Colón

(MA, LPC, ATR)

About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor and registered art therapist with experience with children, adolescents, young adults, and their families. I have provided counseling and art therapy services to various community non-profit organizations and schools in the DFW area. I have worked with clients with a wide array of concerns including stress and anxiety, depression, family conflict, relationship issues, trauma, and anger management.

When I'm not providing counseling services through Better Help or at the school I work for, I love to draw/paint/write, watch movies, spend time with my family, and read a really good book. I really enjoy nature and being outside - I sometimes have delusions that I can keep plants alive, so I dabble in gardening too.

My counseling style is relaxed and collaborative. I see my clients as the "driver" and myself as the "navigator" during the counseling process. I work with my clients to identify goals for treatment and action plans to help them reach their goals in a kind and compassionate manner. My approach blends strengths-based, cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and art therapy methods. I customize how I approach my clients so that I best meet their needs. I also often give clients "homework" to extend what we have discussed/discovered in our sessions. This could be in the form of practicing a particular skill, a journal prompt, or an art activity.

Reaching out for help with life's struggles takes a lot of courage. If you are ready to begin this journey, I am here to support, encourage, and guide you.

I look forward to working with you!

Reviews

Written by N.I. on Feb 15, 2019 after counseling with Jennifer for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, grief, and self esteem

Jennifer provided me with the tools I needed to attain a healthy mindset in what I would consider the worst period of my life. It was easy to connect to her and her counsel was very effective. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is in need of help.
