I have a strong suit in supporting individuals who are a part of the LGBTQIA + community and individuals suffering from Bi-Polar, PTSD, Borderline Personality Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, and other similar diagnoses.
I believe that we are all trying our best to navigate this complex life. Are you the type of person who feels like life is too chaotic? Maybe you feel exhausted every day and fear for your safety? Maybe you are struggling with feelings of loneliness? Maybe you feel disconnected from your body and do not know where the day went? I have helped people learn how to navigate life by providing insight, DBT skills, and assistance in helping people feel more connected to themselves, others, and life.

As an LGBTQIA + person of color, you may feel distressed living in a hostile world to people who look and love as you do.
Coming into therapy can be daunting; however, with your motivation and with a well-suited therapeutic partnership, healing is possible. People pursue therapy for different reasons. Often due to feeling overwhelmed, helpless, depressed or stressed. Others attend during life transitions or when looking for new ways to communicate their needs in their relationships. Whether your goal is to focus on challenges that you are currently facing or issues from the past, our work will focus on whatever is most central for you. I aim always to provide a safe and comfortable environment for you to bring any of your concerns.

As your therapist, I will strive to create a safe and supportive environment in which we can explore the parts of your life that are causing difficulty and identify strategies to provide relief and help you thrive.

Moonbow Mental Health was started to help queer folks heal from systemic trauma by targeting harmful thought patterns that interfere with building self-compassion, developing assertive communication skills, and providing support that focuses on gentleness, care, and respect for each unique perspective.
As humans, we are adaptable and intelligent. We change to better fit our circumstances and survive. What can impede this change is a lack of hope. We don’t believe we can change. Painful experiences can imprint on the brain and alter our perspective of our strength and ability. Yet our largest impediment to change is often being unseen and not validated for who we are. Jenna’s work focuses on creating room for clients to live authentically and teaching them to take up space in their own lives without apologizing.

My therapeutic approach reflects integrative training in Client-Centered, LGBTQ + related, Grief and Loss, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Brief-Therapy, Mindfulness, Gestalt Techniques, and Psychodynamic.
I am often asked why I chose to be a therapist, and the main reason is I understand what it feels like to go through something difficult, new, or challenging alone. Therapy is my passion, and serving as a guide/supportive presence to help clients reach their goals is my sole purpose in treatment. I believe that every client is an expert regarding their life experiences. Therefore, therapy is a collaborative effort, so I am always open to feedback from clients to provide the best service for each individual.

It can be profoundly painful to embody an identity that our culture strives to suppress, whether you’re queer , trans , have a larger body, or otherwise do not fit societal expectations. Too often we are pressured to conform ourselves to narrow and ultimately unattainable standards of who we should be and how we should live. Maybe you feel inadequate, ashamed, alone, or even guilty about the attraction you feel, the body you live in, or questioning your beliefs. You’re looking for a space to unburden yourself, to safely explore beyond what you've been told is acceptable, where you don’t have to make yourself small.

I am a quirky, queer , Colombian-American, from a small town in the South.
Feeling seen, heard, and understood can be some of the most empowering feelings we experience in life. On the other hand, feeling lost, misunderstood, disconnected, and overwhelmed can be extremely isolating. Whether this is due to trauma, life transitions, identity, relationships, dysfunctional family dynamics, anxious thoughts, etc. I know how hard it is to feel alone. Therapy can be the perfect tool to living authentically when you have the courage to explore your inner world with another person and want to know yourself more fully.

I welcome all folks including those from diverse backgrounds – LGBTQ +, all ethnic and racial identities, all gender identities, all religious beliefs or non beliefs, ages 18+, and all levels of ability.
We all have learned to walk through this world with a certain degree of guardedness and protection. Through a safe and gradual process, I assist people in letting down the walls that we formed to protect us. I have found that when our masks start to come off, we can form more authentic and real connections with others. You can safely begin to open, become vulnerable, and get in touch with what you desire. Together, we discover how you can live in a more authentic way in your life. Freedom and happiness are attainable in this world!

One specialty I have is working with those experiencing life as a trans ; queer ; gender non conforming; and/or one who is not sure where they currently are now.
Many of us face times in life when we don't understand what is happening in our lives and why we feel and think the things we do. This is an absolutely normal experience. I am trained to help discover, learn, and guide folks through a path of self discovery and transformation. I take on issues of past traumas; current conflicts at home and work; those living with the experiences of addiction and/or mental health disorders. My philosophy is help teach folks to find more connection and less division within themselves and learn to be present to what they really, really want out of life. Licensed to serve clients in NC, SC, & NY.

What type of Greensboro mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Greensboro?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
