Announcement icon Per MN law, telehealth therapy/counseling must be covered by insurance if remote/video services are covered for medical appointments.
Jen Atherton currently has a waitlist for new clients.
As a therapist, my goal is to allow you to be who you are right now, using a lot of empathy (and well-meaning humor) as well as structure and direction, when necessary. My approach is one of curiosity about you and your ideal self and future. I am typically pretty direct in my approach, which people tend to really appreciate and enjoy! Working together, we will identify and collaborate on goals and how to move you towards them. I would be honored to meet you and to assist you on your health and wellness journey.

My specialty is "whole-person wellness." I view each individual across several domains of health, including physical, social, environmental, and emotional/psychological. I strive to understand who you are from your perspective and work with you as a partner in reaching your goals. I also frequently collaborate with providers in the medical community.
I especially enjoy working with clients who are looking to improve their lifestyle habits in order to feel better. My areas of special interest include: coping with chronic illness or health concerns; those struggling with alcohol or substance use; preparing for surgery; finding meaning in our experiences; & empowering you to be vulnerable and to grow.
