Jen serves as the Clinical Director at Rooted Therapy and on the Executive Board of the Charlotte Transgender Healthcare Group.
Many of the people that we work with come for help uncovering and empowering their authentic selves. We often don't realize how deeply we are shaped over time by our social experiences and it can be overwhelming to sort through alone. Along the way, we often address anxiety, depression, gender, relationships, and interpersonal trauma experiences. The space we create together is aimed to foster internal communication between the different 'parts' of yourself in order to heal, grow, thrive, and find peace and confidence. We can explore together in the private safe space we build together or can invite loved ones to join at times.

I have worked and enjoy working with a wide variety of clients from various backgrounds, but I have a passion for serving the transgender and queer community, as well as trauma survivors and couples.
Thank you for taking the first step in mental health self-care; so tell me, how are you? No really, how are you? If the answer is not great, maybe it’s time to send me a quick message to open up an honest dialogue about starting a therapeutic alliance. I'm Scarlett; I am the owner and therapist at Grounded Guidance Counseling, PLLC, where I provide outpatient therapy services to individuals and couples. I strive to meet my clients exactly where they are emotionally in a professional but relatable manner, as I desire to break down barriers that could make therapy feel intimidating for anyone involved.

Adolescence can be a rocky time for many people, but I believe therapy can be of great help. I work with teenagers and young adults, struggling primarily with mood, identity, and impulse control difficulties. My goals are to help young people build their strengths and relationships in order to find happiness and success as emerging adults. Some of the things I treat are: depression, self-harm, anxiety, family conflict, gender dysphoria , transition to young adulthood stress, and disordered eating habits. Generally I practice cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectal-behavior therapy (DBT) within a caring, humanistic approach.

As a cisgender, straight ally, I am affirming of lesbian, gay, transgender , bisexual and the broader spectrum of queer people who sometimes struggle to find knowledgeable, respectful healthcare providers.
The co-creative process of finding solutions to intimacy problems requires a focused exploration of dynamics inherent in all human interactions, revealing the tension between giving and receiving that can be transformed from a barrier into a bridge. Particularly challenging to some relationships is the process of healing from trauma, chronic illness and aging that impedes intimacy, and my insightful approach at Carolina Sexual Wellness Center is effective when sex play has become more like work. We can renegotiate needs and boundaries, for partners who are willing and able to rebuild a stronger connection after infidelity.

I have found that one of the most difficult steps in therapy is scheduling and attending the first appointment. My aim is to reward that courage by collaboratively working with clients towards reaching their goals. My method is an individualized approach and is couched within a cognitive-behavioral and interpersonal framework. I was trained as a generalist in clinical health psychology working with a wide array of issues ranging from stress management and life transitions to more severe concerns such as trauma. I specialize in working with LGBTQ+ adults. I use the Informed Consent Model for gender-affirming surgery letters.

Asking for help is hard and can be very scary, the fear of judgement, the fear of weakness, the fear of "going crazy". Yet I believe reaching out for help is one of the bravest things anyone can do. I have a passion for working with individuals with trauma. I also have a passion for working with children. It is never too late to start feeling better about being yourself, whether the work starts in childhood or later in life. I want to help people find peace in themselves whether through change or through acceptance.

My style is to really embrace who a person is, where they are in life, and where they want to be. I have a very collaborative and open style. I want to get to know you and all that makes you who you are. I work with individuals, with relationships, and with families.
