About Me

I grew up in the Midwest and am an Iowa Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I recently have relocated to Arizona where it is nice and sunny most of the year. I love nature, I ride a motorcycle and live life to the fullest. I have great kids/grandchildren, and 2 dogs that I adore. I have extensive working knowledge and experience working with children, families, individuals and couples in a variety of scopes. I have a specialization in forensic populations which ties my criminal justice degrees to therapy track as well.

Are you feeling stressed, anxious, depressed or maybe stuck and having issues on where life leads you next, I can assist with that! I encourage the use of meditation apps, mindfulness techniques and grounding techniques to help individuals to become calm, centered and relaxed. I cater to a person centered approach (not a one size fits all mentality) I fully encourage meeting the client where they are in life, according to their current needs. I use CBT techniques to tie behaviors and thoughts to produce meaningful change for my clients- let's do in session and out of session activities and homework! Want to be in nature or want to focus on fitness, lets walk together during your session (environmental therapy is FUN). I have worked at great lengths with my clients to teach assertive communication skills, setting boundaries and how to build healthy and happy relationships. I can assist with job searches, and seeking resources in the community to ensure that my clients have needs met in their personal lives as well.
I look forward to working with you, please do not hesitate to reach out and schedule your appointment today!

Written by K.E. on Nov 19, 2020 after counseling with Jenny for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, grief, and anger management

Im really enjoying having Jenny as my counselor she's a no non sense tells you what exactly you need to work on and how you can without judgment. Would strongly recommend her to anyone that needs help!

I think Jenny is absolutely amazing. She reels me back in when needed and keeps me extremely grounded.

Jenny has definitely responded to my concerns and issues. I was aware I wouldn’t receive a one session fix, however, she also let me know that and has been taking the time to get to know me and respond, I feel, appropriately. I look forward to the next few months of working out my issues
