About Me

Hello, my name is Jennifer Wells, LCSW. I have worked as a Social Worker for 14 years. I have many years of experience working with children and adolescents. When I work with children and adolescents I use a whole family approach and will do both individual and family counseling. I feel the struggles the child is going through are both individual struggles but also a part of the family dynamic. I work with families to help them better understand how their approach and interactions affect not only themselves but the family. As a parent myself I understand the challenges to parenting as well as how the behavior of both the child and parent can impact the relationship.

Teens have their own challenges as they are trying to figure out who they are and how they fit into the family and the world. Teens have so many stressors and learning how to navigate life is a learned behavior that teens are just beginning. I work to help build the skills needed for this journey. Teens who have had traumatic experiences or who have been separated from their family of origin have unique struggles as well. One of the primary goals of teenagers is to learn who they are. They do this by reflecting on how they are similar and different to their family of origin. I look forward to helping you learn and explore.
