Getting to know Jenny
Jenny is one of our most experienced and gifted therapist. Her sweet spot is in helping teens and their parents grow through the struggle of depression and anxiety and to rebuild their connection that can often deteriorate during those difficult times. While parents will often seek out counseling to help with destructive and detrimental behaviors, Jenny is adept at looking at the root cause of the symptoms. Jenny’s compassionate and laid back style instantly connects with teens (yes, even those who initially don’t want to go to counseling), and as a mom of four, she understands (daily) the guilt and fear that parents experience in wanting the best for their kids. She will work alongside you to help your child understand and work through their obstacles and, as is always her goal, fully appreciate the amazing person that they are.
She is also a regular speaker for both youth and parent groups at local churches. In particular, she finds it a joy to help immigrant Chinese parents bridge the generational and cultural gap that they and their Asian-American children can find themselves in.
Outside of the counseling office, Jenny has her hands full with her five favorite people in all the world: her four kids and husband of 17 years. They enjoy biking and hiking around Lake Lewisville, serving at Chase Oaks Church, and cheering each other on in all their various activities.
style & Approach
Jenny’s approach to counseling is to:
1) help you understand your core, foundational thoughts about yourself and how you relate to the world around you. That is, the beliefs, assumptions, perceptions, opinions, and/or interpretations about a) your value (am I worthy of love?) and b) your “belongingness” (where am I truly known and accepted?). It is these foundational and subconscious thoughts, when distorted by self or others, that can lead to being and feeling stuck in an unhealthy behavior or difficult emotion.
2) Help you reframe those distorted thoughts into a healthier, empowered and compassionate inner voice. A neuropsychology nerd, she also enjoys incorporating brain science and practical techniques to help facilitate understanding and connection.
A key component to the link between 1 and 2 is to journey back to the origin and progression of those subconscious thoughts and beliefs with a trusted guide. From your first meeting with Jenny, you will sense her genuine care for you as she helps navigate you, back to the onset of broken beliefs and continuing forward toward your personal counseling goals. And through this process, she will help you realize your courage and strength.
Jenny has extensive experience counseling in the following areas: family therapy, teen therapy, marriage and couples counseling, premarital counseling, sexual assault trauma, crisis intervention, human trafficking trauma, domestic violence trauma, grief counseling, dissociative disorders, OCD, adoption and foster care work, healing for children and spouses of NPDs and BPDs.
