17 years of experience as a mental health therapist

As of June 2024, I am reducing my availability on Betterhelp. Hello and welcome to Betterhelp! My name is Jennifer. I have both Master’s and Education Specialist degrees in Counseling, with a specialization in Couples and Family. I also received my Bachelor's of Science in Nursing from Duke and am a practicing Registered Nurse. I’ve worked as a licensed therapist in North Carolina for over 17 years. I work frequently with difficult relationship dynamics whether in families or among romantic partners. I do quite a bit of work in trauma recovery, anxiety and stress reduction, resiliency building, and identity development. Mine is a holistic, positive, supportive approach that promotes self-awareness and the interruption of unhelpful patterns of thoughts and behaviors that lead to being "stuck". I teach mindfulness, yogic interventions and encourage gratitude and curiosity in my clients! I'm a good fit for those who are struggling to understand themselves or their relationships as well as those who continue to meet obstacles in creating the kind of lives and relationships they'd like. Presenting concerns may include PTSD/trauma symptoms, anxiety, depression, intense anger, difficulty coping or transitioning, challenges with relationships, and poor body image (with or without eating concerns). In my spare time I enjoy hiking, beekeeping and chasing my two sons! I hope we are a good fit and look forward to connecting with you.

Negotiating the challenges of everyday life is not easy. It's especially more difficult if you are struggling with other issues like anxiety, depression, significant life changes, sexual identity, relationship struggles, trauma or addiction. A life out a balance is not a self-fulfilled life! Giving yourself permission to acknowledge what is not working and wanting to talk to someone is a courageous step. Therapy should be an opportunity for you to share your struggles in a judgment free compassionate environment. My style is to provide a space where vulnerability and authenticity are welcome. I also know that to make change, it takes encouragement and sometimes a little push. If you are ready to start your journey to being happier and more fulfilled in your life, I would like to be your guide. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) practicing in Utah and have been in the field of social work for 29 years. I have two undergraduate degrees from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, UT, and a Master's in Social Work Degree from Smith College in Northampton, MA. In addition to doing clinical work, I teach at the college level. As a result of living all over the United States, I have worked with many diverse populations and welcome the opportunity to continue to do so. I currently specialize in working with individuals and couples on relationship issues and sexual wellness. I assist clients with sexual issues and concerns, including, but not limited to: intimacy issues; infidelity; communication; sexual pleasure; sexual function and dysfunction; sexual variation; sexuality/gender identity; and sexual functioning over the life span. The approach I use for supporting a client is tailored to each individual's unique needs, and is often eclectic, meaning a combination of several therapies. My early training was based in the psychodynamic approach of Object Relations. As my focus changed to include couples in my practice, I now utilize a variety of treatment modalities, with the emphasis being on Attachment Based Therapy, Relational Life Therapy, and Emotionally Focused Therapy. I have come to deeply appreciate that no matter who the person, circumstance or diagnosis, it is empathy, compassion and equanimity that are the greatest gifts I carry into therapeutic relationships.

20 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hello. I have been a mental health counselor for 20 years; currently residing in Utah. prior to that was NY and FL. I work with an array of concerns, including, but not limited to marriage and family, childhood trauma, attachment disorder, ADHD, disordered eating, anxiety/mood disorders, anger management, substance use, grief and loss, and some psychotic disorders/behaviors. I have also worked with individuals and families involved with divorce/blended/separation issues; including reunification and parental alienation. As a Christian, I believe in meeting people where they are, with respect, dignity, humility and compassion. My therapeutic approach includes EMDR, existentialism, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and solution-focused. Our therapeutic relationship is that of a dance; sometimes you will lead, sometimes I will lead. Our dance will be slow and steady at times and yet other times unsteady and off beat. Please understand that sometimes, the dynamic of the dance will seem uncomfortable and you will doubt whether or not you can continue; rest assured, that is where I begin to lead you. I will teach you the dance, in other words, how to cope with whatever it is you are struggling with. Then one day you will lead, by mastering the skill set needed to overcome whatever difficulties lie ahead in your given situation. It is a process that requires patience, trust and kindness on your part - being kind to yourself, but also, gradually allowing yourself to trust and be patient with the process. It takes great courage to reach out for help from a stranger! And you are very brave and courageous by taking the next best steps in this journey; this dance! I consider it a privilege to work alongside you. Blessings, Jessica

I have practiced for over 30 years and am a licensed clinical social worker with certifications that reflect extensive background in addictions and other mental health issues. I have also worked for most of my career with a focus on families and couples. My approach is relational. There are as many approaches to therapy as there are therapists - if we align to work together my role is to empower you to reach your goals, to help you identify the assets and barriers to doing so, and perhaps teach some healthy coping and communication strategies as well. I consider the journey to self awareness and understanding a sacred journey, and one that is vital for desired change. Time is a precious commodity, and I will challenge you to maximize yours to achieve desired results. Additionally, it is a process that I myself continue to do, so be assured that there is nothing that I will ask you to do that I have not done myself. While I do not claim to be a religiously based therapist, please know that there is a spiritual foundation in my approach and I will meet you whereever you are in your spirituality, whatever that means to you. I consider it a great honor to know the deepest parts of those that I walk and work with, and will help you lift up and strengthen the best parts of you.

Therapy is a process of growth and self-awareness. I have the skills and professional experience to help you get back on track. My main focus and expertise is centered on women's issues, such as grief and loss, miscarriages/infant loss, IVF failures, infertility, depression, anxiety, and trauma. In my many years of experience, I have worked with people of many ages and in various situations. Everyone is unique and I believe in giving an individualized experience that will best fit the client. I believe that all people have strengths and given the appropriate level of support, can overcome and work through almost anything. I will help you work towards and find contentment. I am empathetic and believe that everyone has worth and value.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in South Salt Lake?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a South Salt Lake therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance.

South Salt Lake therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a South Salt Lake counselor?

Before seeing your South Salt Lake therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in South Salt Lake.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A South Salt Lake licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a South Salt Lake counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in South Salt Lake, Utah can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
