About Me

Hello! I'm Jenny, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). Since graduating from IU School of Social work in 2011, my focus has mostly been on those with intellectual disabilities and mental health issues. I have worked with several individuals on the Autism spectrum, as well as individuals with Down's Syndrome, ADHD, Bi-polar disorder, GAD, among others. I have worked as a behavior therapist for the past 8 years and am looking to continue to help others through additional platforms.

I believe it is important to focus on the individual and determine what works best for each person. I tend to focus more on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) as well as utilizing a strength based approach. Overall, I would say I utilize an individualized eclectic approach.

Reaching out for help is an incredible sign of strength and I applaud you for making that first step. If you would like me to assist you on that path, feel free to contact me.

At first I was really anxious about the counseling but Jenny made it really easy for me to feel comfortable. As time passes, it feels amazing to talk to Jenny because I know that she understands me very well and every time I do it is really helpful.

Jenny is kind, compassionate, patient, and really helps me determine whether my thoughts are based on my own projections onto others or true examinations of the facts in front of me. I feel the positive impacts of our sessions every week.

Knowing that I have an appointment coming up with Jenny gives me peace of mind. She really listens to me and helps me organize my thoughts. I feel cared for and understood. I’m very glad that I decided to give Better Help a try!
