Jenn completed her undergraduate work at the University of Georgia in Risk Management and Insurance.

It was during this journey that Jenn was called to Richmont Graduate University, where she earned her degree as a Clinical Mental Health Counselor.

As a counselor, Jenn is passionate about  working with individuals through the daily struggles of their life: whether it’s their marriage, relationship issues, or personal problems. She highly values the power of the therapeutic relationship and has an authentic ability to meet clients exactly where they are. She believes individuals can best grow when they are greeted with an environment of genuineness, acceptance, and empathy. Jenn is committed to providing a safe and comfortable atmosphere, where clients of all ages can explore the challenges they are facing. She uses a combination of techniques, drawing from attachment theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, strength-based and client-centered techniques to meet her clients where they are and wlak with them through the process of creating positive change. Jenn identifies as a Christian counselor, giving her the ability to integrate faith-based values into therapy with her clients as they desire.

She obtained valuable experience working at an Atlanta-based health center, where Jenn provided counseling to individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, mood disorders, relationship issues, PTSD, physical health problems, and life transitions. In addition, she has gained a wealth of knowledge and experience through counseling individuals in a homeless shelter, providing support and skills-based counseling to equip and stabilize clients coming from difficult life circumstances.

Jenn has been married for 8 years and has three children. In her spare time, she loves running, photography, and spending time with her family and church community.
