About me

I am licensed in Iowa with 3 years of professional work experience as a Mental Health therapist. Prior to my work as a therapist, I have experience working with behavioral issues, hospice, autism and inpatient psychiatric clients. I have been trained in EMDR, DBT, TR-CBT, Polyvagal Theory, Parts Work, Somatic Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, coping with grief and loss, & motivation, self esteem, and confidence.
The therapeutic relationship is very important to me as I believe that the space between us is where we can explore all the things that need to be explored. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!

Jenna makes me feel very comfortable to talk to her about things that are bothering me. She has been great at listening and helping me with my emotions and feelings, and giving me new coping skills that help me with the struggles that I am having. I feel very confident in her knowledge. Sometimes it’s hard to think about where I was when I first started meeting with her and where I am now. It’s like the difference between night and day. I owe this change to her positive and supportive interactions.

Jenna does a great job of patiently listening to your issues, and helping you gain the tools to solve your own problems through providing thought-provoking insights that push you to confront your thoughts/feelings.

Jenna has been very insightful. She has been able to pull some things out of me that I did not realize. The best part about our first few sessions is she has given me permission to not feel guilty. To put it all aside and just focus on me. I have not been able to do that in years. I look forward to my weekly sessions with her. The time for myself and to visit with her gives me hope which is what I am needing right now.

Talking with Jenna is easy. I appreciate that she listens and responds compared to previous therapy sessions I've had where i felt like i just talked and got zero feedback from my therapist. She checks in here and there too besides just the appointment calls

Jenna has been so helpful at a time when I really needed someone to listen to me . She does an amazing job of walking that line between therepy and really making you feel like your talking to a friend. Her advice and suggestions have made a huge difference in how I was handling some issues, and everyone in my family is much happier.
