Mechanicsville, Virginia 23111

Jennifer earned a Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Walden University and is continuing her studies there, pursuing a Ph.D. in Health Psychology. Her aim is to contribute to behavioral research. She studied abroad to extend her cultural knowledge and understanding. Jennifer completed her internship in professional counseling at New Life Journey, Inc. under Donna Grile, LPC, where she acquired knowledge and experience in substance abuse and addiction. She now works at Grapevine Counseling and Therapy and is supervised by Connie Jenks, LPC.

Jennifer specializes in depression, excessive worry and anxiety, panic disorder, life balance issues, stress, codependency and anger management. She leads specialized groups that center on managing weight, living with chronic illness and improving self-esteem.

Jennifer has a great deal of experience as a professional in the healthcare business coupled with her own experience in maintaining a career and balancing family life with self-care. The challenges of raising her own children while she continued her career inspired her to change her career in order to work with individuals who dealt with struggles like she did. She is focused on helping other people to enhance their careers and find harmony in their personal lives and, ultimately, enjoying contentment in themselves.

Jennifer believes that a person should be supported as a whole—meaning the relationships between the mind, body and spirit.

In treatment, Jennifer uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution-Focused approaches to help in resolving issues and healing, as well as in finding contentment.

Mechanicsville Counseling – Mental Health Services, Therapy, VA

Many of us remember roaming about the neighborhood all day in the summer, without a care in the world. No cell phones, no worries, just fun outside. Things have changed. Few parents let their parents roam free, and certainly not without a means of communication. Whether it actually is or not, the world feels more dangerous. It seems like our children are in danger nearly all day long. We are never without something about which to worry. When fears about this world get overwhelming, reaching out to a Thriveworks Mechanicsville Counseling provider who can help relieve some of these fears. We cannot change the reality of the world, but we can help you figure out how to navigate it. We can help you learn coping mechanisms and strategies that you can use in any situation.

If you are seeking counseling, the reason may be very serious and traumatic, or it may be simply seeking counseling or therapy in Mechanicsville, VA. Whatever you are facing, we have a Thriveworks Mechanicsville Counseling therapists can meet this need. Our lives are full of problems and issues on a daily basis. Trouble in our relationships, with our children, or in our extended family, is very common. We are all flawed individuals, and our issues multiply when we are together. When you connect with a Thriveworks Mechanicsville Counseling, we can help diagnose the various pieces of the puzzle of your relationship.

People of all ages can benefit from speaking with a coach or counselor, from the very young to the very mature. It may not be an easy decision, but it is a very important and meaningful decision.

Reasons to pursue counseling in Mechanicsville may include:

  • Anxiety issues
  • Sexual issues
  • Couples counseling
  • Career coaching
  • Eating disorders
  • Depression
  • Obsessive-compulsive tendencies
  • Grief counseling
  • Problems with a child
  • Stress management
  • Divorce recovery
  • Anger management
  • Addiction issues
  • Life coaching
  • Life transitions such as divorce or loss of a job

Perhaps you are not seeking help for yourself, but rather for a family member. If you are looking for a child therapist, Thriveworks Mechanicsville Counseling can meet that need. Children are often unable to speak up for themselves, and are unaware that counseling is even an option. If a child has suffered a trauma, it can be very difficult to get him or her to open up and express their feelings. Thriveworks Mechanicsville Counseling counselors in Mechanicsville are able to meet a child right where they are at, and gently work through their feelings and emotions. We can partner with a family, and help each person feel their worth and identify their areas of need and attention.

Your life is full of responsibilities. You spend so much time caring for others, but how much time do you give to yourself? Perhaps you have simply put your dreams on hold for too long. You have spent decades addressing your family’s needs, and ignoring your own. Thriveworks Mechanicsville Counseling has counselors and therapists that understand, but we want you to know that you can be more; your life can be more. Life is not a dress rehearsal. If you do not take charge of your life now, when? If you do not give attention to your dreams, who will?

We know that seeking counseling is an important decision, and one you may have been considering for quite some time. For this reason, we want to be ready when you are ready to make a change in your life. We pride ourselves on not operating with a waiting list. In most cases, we can pair you with a Thriveworks Mechanicsville Counseling provider within 24 hours. You have waited so long to live the life you really want. Why wait a moment longer?
