Your treatment has a beginning, middle & end. I am trained and certified in many of the latest breakthrough treatments including EMDR and Brainspotting. I use these modalities because I have found them to be the most effective. The field of psychotherapy has come a long way since it began. We now know that it doesn't have to take as long as previously believed for permanent healing and change to take place. The term "neuroplasticity" refers to the brain's ability to change and rewire itself at any age or stage of life. Too often, clients participate in years of talk therapy and medication management without results.

At times, we struggle through life’s challenges, perhaps feeling stuck or unsure of the path forward. Maybe you’re going through a stressful transition, burdened by emotional pain, or just have an inkling that life isn’t going “right.” Psychotherapy can help you navigate life’s difficulties and cope more effectively. My focus is to understand your concerns, help you consider underlying causes, work on making better choices and increase your sense of control over unwanted behaviors and thoughts. Regardless of the intensity, severity, and frequency of your concerns, nothing is too small or too big to benefit from psychotherapy.

Sometimes the world can feel impossibly heavy, and it is exhausting to cope with underlying challenges like chronic stressors, depression, anxiety, or trauma. Having a space to fully vent your worries and frustrations without fear or guilt is so important for mental health, but often so difficult to find. I approach my clients with warmth and without judgment. I work to cultivate a collaborative connection with clients, while empowering them to make sustainable, long-term changes, beyond our time together.

My therapeutic style is warm, authentic, and interactive. I create a comfortable and non-judgmental working environment for my clients, using empathy, honesty, and a sense of humor. I approach each individual treatment collaboratively - establishing treatment goals that are tailored specifically to the individual client's needs. My clients gain understanding and insight that help alleviate symptoms and create positive life changes. Because the way we think affects the way we feel, I help my clients learn how to identify and challenge negative thinking. These practical skills enable them to maintain the level of progress they make during therapy.

You feel stuck in a cycle of trying, but never feeling good enough? This can be especially true if you've experienced trauma, leaving you with emotional wounds that make it hard to trust yourself and others. You are often worried and trying to balance school or work. Your heart is racing, and you are unable to relax; everyday situations are overwhelming. Sometimes you feel alone, even surrounded by your tribe. You might wonder if they truly understand what you're going through. Perhaps you've tried everything to change, but nothing seems to work. This constant effort can be exhausting, leaving you feeling frustrated and hopeless.

www.mindymjensen.com Most People explore therapy when they are aware they want more out of life. Therapy is a process of examining wants and behaviors, and establishing a course to achieve those goals more effectively. I work with people in individual and group psychotherapy. I also work with couples with a co-therapist, allowing each client to feel like they have an advocate in the room. This helps the couple identify, negotiate and achieve their goals whether individually or collectively.
