Here’s a little bit about myself. I am a licensed mental health counselor in Washington state, and have been practicing for nearly 4 years. I have worked in a wide array of settings, ranging from private practice to community mental health agencies. Many of the individuals I've worked with struggle with issues of depression, anxiety, relationship issues, anger management career challenges, trauma and abuse. I would describe my counseling style as both relaxed and collaborative. In my counseling services, I believe extending respect and compassion are paramount to success, as all of us are journeying through our own unique life’s path. My approach has its basis in postmodernism (solution focused and narrative practices) with integrated perspectives from systemic theories, and ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy). These approaches are utilized in ways that are based on your unique needs and desires that come from our conversations. Many times, life can present us with challenges that seem overwhelming by taking us down a path that is not of our choosing nor of our preference. So, if you’re struggling with navigating life’s difficulties and would like some support, then I am here to help.

Hi there! My name is Jenny and I have been a licensed marriage and family therapist in Washington State for 9 years. I received my degree at Seattle Pacific University in 2012. I am also certified in Medical Family Therapy from Seattle Pacific University. I have worked with clients of all ages around a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, family of origin issues, career/school concerns, parenting, self-esteem, grief and loss, chronic health issues, transitional periods, trauma, PTSD, autism, ADHD and pregnancy and postpartum. I am a systemic therapist which means I like to explore all of the systems a person is involved with. This helps create the most dynamic picture of what is fulfilling a person as well as what could be creating stress or dysfunction. My goal is to assist clients in identifying and expressing feelings and changing unsatisfying roles, patterns and attitudes. I also work from a solution focused view which means I believe it is most beneficial to focus on solutions rather than problems. I place great emphasis on empowering and supporting clients in their journey to achieve their goals. I will commit to being open, respectful, curious and accountable to you and what we work on in the therapy process. Therapy can be a difficult and painful process however it can also be very satisfying and rewarding. We will create goals together in which we will strive to achieve. I look forward to working with you!

Life can sometimes be difficult and surprising. There are ebbs and flows. The seasons of our life hold challenges, new issues arise, and we are sometimes confused. Perhaps what we seek is a new question. That question might lead to new answers and strategies for navigating through the present challenge. I’m a counselor with over 20 years of experience and specialized trainings. I’ve become familiar with the variety and depth of our human circumstances and encounters. I hold a conviction and personal view that every person’s trials and perceptions are their truth and that they present an opportunity for growth. What is true for you, your reality, is our starting point toward achieving goals. Counseling is a tool that helps us get current with our life. In the partnering of counselor and client, I utilize a holistic focus that validates your experience, finds the wisdom that makes the most sense in your challenge, and gives you a place to be seen and accepted without a need to be other than your true self. With my ease of listening with empathy and intuition, and my ability to guide through the background noise and chaos of life events, your life story and the innate wisdom it holds will unfold so you can develop strategies that are in your highest and best interests.

A little bit about me: I am a licensed therapist living in the mountains of Utah. Along with being a therapist, I'm a Guide and Educator. In the winter months I teach Avalanche Education and also work as a Mountain Guide taking people in what we call the "Backcountry". I love spending time in the outdoors and I have utilized this setting for many years as part of my therapy work. My private practice is called "Walk & Talk"; and my website is: walkandtalkhelp.weebly.com. I have worked with adolescents, families, and adult individuals of all ages and ethnicities for over over 10 years. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, family issues, addictions, grief, self worth, and ADHD. My therapy style is compassionate, empathetic and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and acceptance; and I believe that the only thing we can really change in life is our attitude and how we deal with the issues that are confronting us. It is my belief that many humans struggle with issues of self esteem in one way or the other, and yet we are all worthy of living a healthy and content life. My therapeutic approach combines many different modalities, with the key being that you the client are capable of leading your own healing path. I believe it is you the client that dictates the kind of approach needed for moving forward in your own healing process. This healing path will not have you out there on your own, and some of therapeutic processes I incorporate into my sessions utilize cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and acceptance and commitment therapy . We will work together, and our dialog will help in determining the specific treatment plan to meet your personal needs. Everyone deserves to wake up each day and look forward to what that days has to offer, and find a new sense of enjoyment within themselves and those around you. If you have a desire to bring more joy and contentment into your life, I welcome you to invite me into your journey. I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Beaux Arts Village therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Beaux Arts Village due to a higher cost of living.

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

You can also try a Beaux Arts Village therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a 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. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

A psychologist in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

A Beaux Arts Village therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Beaux Arts Village counselor?

Before seeing your 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. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist 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. A Beaux Arts Village 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 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.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy 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 professional 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 Beaux Arts Village, Washington 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.

Beaux Arts Village has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. 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?

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.
