I remember what it was like to be a teenager and I remember how difficult some parts of that were. I know asking for help and seeking counseling can be scary. I'm so glad you have taken this first step. The BetterHelp platform takes away some of that fear by allowing you the safety of your phone/tablet/computer screen. It’s a wonderful first step, especially if this is maybe your first time seeking counseling. I am here for you; not your parents or your teachers or you friends. Whatever you decide you want or need from counseling is what we will talk about. This is a wonderful place that gets to be all about you and nobody else.
I have experience working with drug/alcohol issues, depression, anxiety, stress, self-esteem, co-dependency, major mental health (although, BetterHelp may not always be the best platform for that), trauma, grief, and autism.
I am an independent licensed mental health practitioner (LIMHP) in Nebraska. I am a national certified counselor (NCC), which requires me to hold a high standard of ethics in my field. I also have a certificate in play therapy, which through my studies and experience has taught me about child development and attachment which can be helpful in many scenarios. It has also taught me how to have joy in my own life, play, and not take myself too seriously.
My counseling style is non-judgmental, affirming, and warm. I’ve worked with many different kinds of people and all different ages. I am a good listener and I am a problem-solver by nature.
I can’t wait to get started in helping you find joy and balance in your life. Everyone struggles from time to time and I am so happy you have come here for help. You are so brave.

Jen is so caring and encouraging. Her compassion helps to make me feel safe and more hopeful, and her skills in therapy help me to work on myself more effectively. I’m so grateful for her.
Working with Jen was absolutely vital to my mental health maintenance this year. As a grad student and husband I had a lot on my plate, and being able to vent to her at the touch of a button was so helpful when I didn't have a traditional support system available. If you're in a tight spot and need someone to listen to you judgement free, Jen is the best.
Jen has been my rock, daily helping me through all my emotional gunk. I don’t know if I would still be here without her help.
Jen is amazing! She was great listened to everything I asked and helped me in many ways!
Jen is great always being able to talk about whatever is happening in life and always response to messages in a timely manner. Also is nice to be able to have so many options to have a one on one session.
Jen is very understanding and helpful! I appreciate her feedback and expertise!
