About Me

I grew up in the Midwest and am an Iowa Licensed Mental Health Counselor. 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 am solution focused, but also be prepared to be challenged and redirected to get you out of your comfort zones. 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! I am currently offering Tuesday 9 am to 6 PM MST (i.e. 11 AM to 8 PM CST) appointments, and occasionally Thursday appointments as needed.

Jenny is direct, honest and actually helpful. None of the fluff and nonsense. She's pushing me in great ways

Jenny is a rare gem. Someone else described her as "no-nonsense," but I think more than that, she is pragmatic, organized, evolved, and non-judgmental. She is so skilled at helping her clients create meaningful goals and coming up with creative activities to encourage her clients to continue to grow independently of their counseling. I would recommend Jenny to anyone who feels like they need a source of stability while the ground is shifting beneath their feet.

Jenny A. listens to my concerns and redirects them to where my concerns may be stemming from or helps me tackle it immediately. She can make small talk to keep it personal, but also direct attention to anything that may need to be focused on. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a general guideline on their mental health, and, also, anyone who really needed someone to help guide themselves.

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.

Work with me!
