"Jenna enjoys working with young children specializing in early childhood mental health therapy. Jenna takes a wraparound approach to assessing mental health symptoms and considers the many factors affecting young children including developmental issues, family relationships, and school environments. Young children may experience “big” feelings that they struggle to express in an appropriate way. Instead they may display these feelings through behaviors such as verbal or physical aggression, defiance, attention seeking behavior, anxious/withdrawn behavior, excessive crying/tantrums, hyperactivity, difficulty with separation, etc. With the use of psychoeducation, skill building in feelings expression, cognitive behavioral therapy, play therapy techniques, expressive art therapy, family therapy and behavior management strategies, Jenna has seen many children improve their overall mood and improve their behaviors at home and school. Jenna highly values parental involvement throughout treatment and individualizes treatment approaches to meet the child and family’s needs. "

I've been teaching in the K-12 public system for 18 years, which gives me a unique perspective when addressing a child's emotional/behavioral concerns. While I counsel children individually, the therapeutic process is a family affair.
