About Me

My name is Jennifer Maddox and I enjoy being a licensed professional counselor. I earned my Master of Arts degree as a Professional Counselor from Liberty University in 2016. I also hold a Master of Arts degree in Human Services with a specialization in health and wellness. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, alcoholism, family and relationship conflicts, grief, anger management, bipolar disorders, adjustment disorders, adolescents, children, trauma, and stress.

Counseling provides an avenue to navigate through life’s challenges in a healthy and productive manner. As a counselor I strive for my clients to gain self-awareness and self-acceptance, for we are ultimately responsible for our own well-being. However, with adolescents they are not able to make the best choices regarding their well-being.
I believe that guidance and family are very important in the lives of teens at such stages in life. I try to uplift the teen while providing a safe environment for them to decompress. The goals, progress, and personality will determine which techniques I use when interacting with adolescents. I incorporate an eclectic approach, often favoring cognitive-behavioral, and humanistic therapies.

Jennifer has made a big difference in the life of our teenage daughter! We immediately saw a change in our daughter’s attitude when we put into practice Jennifer’s recommendations with regards to the way we as parents interact with our daughter. Thank you Jennifer!

Even though I just recently started therapy with Jennifer, I think she is a great listener and she is exceedingly helpful she is giving me a lot of things to think about and is helping me work through a lot. I am confident that Jennifer can and will help me and I look forward to this journey she has accompanied me on with my mental health.

I’ve only had one live session but that along with the messages that Jennifer has sent me have been so refreshing. She always gets back to me in a timely fashion and she’s very relatable which helped create a trusting environment.

I've been using teen counseling for about two weeks now & it has been the best decision I've made. I started off by participating in groupinars while waiting to be matched with my counselor. The groupinars were uplifting & very informative.

When I received the notification that I was matched with Jennifer, I was excited & nervous at the same time because I knew the type of counselor I wanted & wasn't sure if we'd be a good match. Let me tell you...…Jennifer is literally all I've prayed for in a counselor. She's understanding, kind, caring, and relatable. I am excited for this journey.

I’ve only had one session so far but I can tell Jennifer will be amazing to work with. She’s already been so supportive and listens to me. Highly recommend.

I have talked to a few different professionals in a few different settings over the last 15 or so years on and off and she is the first one I feel like has helped me the most. I often unload on her with word vomit and she’s able to go through and pick out what the real issues are and work with me on those. I’ve been working with her for a couple weeks now and I feel like my life is getting back on track with the few things she’s helping me through. I really appreciate everything she does!

Jennifer is a God-send. She is professional, understanding, relatable, grounded and seems to always know what to say and how to say it. I feel safe, seen and understood without judgement. She knows how to keep you focused on what matters in life. Jennifer has been an extreme blessing to my life, especially during such a dark and tumultuous time for the world, for America, my community and my family.

Jennifer is very supportive and understanding. She's able to take your feedback and challenge you to think more about what you're experiencing and how those experiences are impacting your emotional and mental well-being. She has helped me to expand upon my perspective. She is very empathetic and fair. She also has encouraged me to revisit my spirituality as a necessary facet of who I am. I would recommend Jennifer to anyone who is matched with her, based on their criteria and needs. She is a lovely woman and a comforting therapist.
