I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Montana. I have been working with individuals and families for 10 years years on a wide variety of concerns ranging from depression, anxiety, stress management, grief and loss, care-giving stress, dealing with a major medical diagnosis and life transitions. I have given many presentations nationally on coping with cancer as a young adult, grief and loss and dealing with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias.
My counseling approach is dynamic and interactive. I approach areas of concerns with a strengths based approach in order to help clients identify their goals and find ways within themselves to deal with difficult emotions. I also believe that change is possible and we are all capable of change with the right set of support and tools. I use a variety of cognitive and dialectical behavioral interventions along with mindfulness skills to help round out your experiencing and build up coping skills and achieve your goals.
In my free time I like to camp and hike with my family in Montana and all over the Pacific Northwest. I also practice Yoga and enjoy baking and cooking with my two year old who fancies himself a chef these days! I look forward to speaking with you and determining how I can help you achieve your goals and cope with difficult emotions.
- Stress, Anxiety

I also have experience in LGBT, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Parenting issues, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder

Jenny made herself immediately available and communicated her frequency of contact. This reassured me of not being left to "hang" and gave me confidence to write as often as needed. The video conferencing took a bit to que-up, but once we got going, it has worked well. She accurately understands how trauma informs decisions and offers paths of change, always with an open hand. I feel confident that our collective work will result in positive changes in my life and that of my family. She supplements our communication with "side-work" and this has been helpful for me to process my work in an organized fashion.
She is very uplifting and has helped me so much already! She's understanding and caring...I'm very happy she's my counselor! Thank you so much
Jenny is great! No only does she help me with mental and emotional issues, I feel as I can also confide in her about other personal things that cause my mental and emotional issues! She is so helpful.
In the few weeks have have been working with Jenny, she has really understood the things I am going through and has helped me build and find ways to move forward! She has a very great way at doing her job! I would recommend her to anyone!!
She listens to what I have to say and tries to help me through things.
I have not been in therapy with her for a long time but this short period has been really great. She's quite mindful of the things you talk about and knows how to recognize patterns that may be detrimental to your well being. She's also very punctual and thoughtful - always responds to the messages you send, and every session ends with a summary of what was discussed. In short, very good!!! :)
