Jena has extensive experience in working with individuals and families who are affected by trauma. Her approach to therapy utilizes a holistic approach with an Internal Family Systems (IFS) perspective, incorporating mind, body, and soul care.
Over the last eight years Jena’s practice has expanded to integrate work with those experiencing infertility and recurrent grief and loss. She has a special interest in working with those impacted by such struggles and to support healing for couples and individuals during infertility challenges, pregnancy, and beyond. Jena also works with those looking for help in navigating relationship challenges and life/work transitions. Jena's final area of focus is related to sports psychology and helping athletes and coaches consider how their physical, mental, and emotional aspects are dependent on each other to achieve optimal performance.
Her goal in therapy is to create a relationship where she can help you learn more about yourself and the Self inside all of us that is calm, clear, curious, and connected. The goal is also to identify and get to know parts of you that exist in your life that make Self access difficult at times. Work together will center on identifying challenges and facilitating healing and wholeness that is Self-led and unique to you.
