Empowering Others to Live Happier, More Productive Lives. I am Jennifer Evans, LPC, LMHC. I am a board-certified therapist in multiple states and over 15 years of counseling experience. I am passionate about effecting change and helping work with people to achieve insight to gain maximum potential and reach their most desired visions and goals. I know personally and professionally how difficult it is to get here and I am proud of your first step and commitment to change. I know I can be valued support as we work together to reach success, insight, and overcome emotional and psychosocial stressors.
A little more about me, I was born and raised in Florida, did my undergraduate at Florida State University, and moved to Virginia to Eastern Virginia Medical School, where I studied clinical counseling and received my Master’s in Art Therapy. As a military spouse, we relocated many times. I redeveloped my career each duty station, which gave me a myriad of experiences with various populations and personal insight on how difficult it can be to start over or have to find your place and career with so many unknowns surrounding you. My passion for treatment is trauma and life experiences that lead us to feel fearful, unsafe, and saddened; sometimes with no explanation as to why we feel the way we do.
I work with my client’s in a person-centered format with cognitive-behavioral underpinnings and psychoeducation to not only work through and build a better understanding of ourselves but the experiences and beliefs that built us and ways to endure and build resiliency to better manager those feelings so they are not as overwhelming in the future. Many times these thoughts can affect the decisions we make and our current behaviors. We will work through these to build better responses and approaches to behavior that have lasting impacts on success in the future.

The best therapist I’ve ever had! Almost has a 6th sense, knows exactly what to say and when to just listen.
Jennifer has been wonderful and really helped during a difficult period in my life. She listens and has good feedback and resources to make things not feel as monumental as they once did.
Very detailed and relatable. She gives you the blueprint to successful relationships
Dr. Evans has been working with my teenager on her anxiety. I believe it has helped her and I am glad I chose Dr. Evans.
One thing I immediately noticed with Jennifer is her use of “we” when addressing goals and obstacles. It really made me feel I have someone really supportive and I really think she is a genuine caring therapist that really wants you to be the healthiest version of you!
Jennifer has been such a tremendous help to me so far and I’ve only been seeing her for a few weeks now. She really listens and you can tell that she genuinely cares about your wellbeing and getting you to a bette headspace.
very supportive and excellent at offering varied methods of coping
