About Me

Welcome! My name is Traynette Jenkins-Reese, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Missouri. I have over 20 years of experience working in the mental health field. I have worked in a variety of settings including residential treatment facilities, outpatient, in-home, and EAP counseling. I've had experience working with a broad range of clinical issues. My clientele have included people from various ethnic backgrounds, ages and socio-economic statues. I have the most experience working with family/relationship conflicts, trauma/abuse, depression, anxiety and intellectual/developmental disabilities, but have helped with a variety of other issues presented.

I use a person-centered approach in treatment. This means I begin where you are and tailor the treatment approach to your individual needs. I primarily use evidence based techniques including cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused counseling.

I would describe my style as warm, non-judgmental and supportive. I'm here to assist you in tackling the issues that you've been struggling to overcome. Collaboration is very important in the client/therapist relationship - together we can work on establishing steps to help you overcome your current issues. I look forward to working with you and providing the best support needed!

I only had one session with Traynette due to unforeseen circumstances. During this session I found her to be very sympathetic and helpful. She provided me with tools to better myself and insight into my relationship that I hadn’t seen before. In a different situation, I most definitely would have continued my therapy with her. She is easy to talk to, knowledgeable and friendly.

She’s amazing and a great listener. I love talking to her because it’s a judgment free zone and she makes me feel comfortable. She gives great advice but most importantly, she’s that awesome person that’s rooting for you that you definitely want on your team.
