Jenny earned her Master’s of Arts in Counseling from Boise State University and is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor working with all ages. Jenny also works as a school counselor with elementary students and has also taught middle school aged kids for 25 years which is one reason she finds working with youth invigorating and fun. Jenny also enjoys working with adults in helping them gain a better quality of life and interpersonal wellbeing.
Using a variety of techniques, Jenny finds herself being drawn to reality/choice therapy as she believes when we are given unfortunate circumstances in our lives, we have choices. Jenny feels with support and guidance, we can choose to view those circumstances as opportunities toward growth. Is everybody able to change and grow? Jenny believes so!
Jenny specializes in counseling and play therapy for individuals with concerns related to:
- Depression and sadness
- Anxiety and stress
- Relationship concerns
- Self esteem
- Personal growth
Outside of counseling and teaching, you would find Jenny spending time with people she loves and doing a variety of activities. Jenny has a strong drive and passion for being active and loves down-hill skiing most of all. Jenny’s view on life is a lot like learning to ski. You have to start on the bunny hill and develop the necessary skills to attempt the harder runs and overcome obstacles. Risks and choices are definitely involved on this journey, and sometimes you just have to fall down to become better and be able to hit those black diamond runs.
