“Empathy has no script. There is no right way or wrong way to do it. It's simply listening, holding space, withholding judgment, emotionally connecting, and communicating that incredibly healing message of 'you are not alone.' “- Brené Brown
Hi, I’m Jen. I am honored to be joining the team at Healthy Synergy, LLC and I look forward to this amazing opportunity. I recently graduated from Northern Arizona University with my Masters in Education and will be working towards licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor. I am currently under the direct supervision of Dr. Sophia Murphy, DBH, LPC. With my Bachelors in Elementary Education, I have worked closely with children and families for most of my career. During my practicum and internship as a counseling student, I gained additional experiences with adolescents and adults. When I am not working as a therapist or school counselor, I enjoy being out in nature, cooking, reading, and spending time with my family. Also, a huge part of my life and my major form of self-care is physical fitness. I love plyometrics, strength training, HIIT, and creating circuits to meet my fitness goals.
I believe that everyone has good qualities and when a person feels valued and appreciated, they have the power within themselves to build up their inner strength, heal, and make positive changes. Sometimes we need a little guidance and support on this journey; I will be here for you. With a psychodynamic approach to therapy, we can better understand the root cause of current behaviors. By exploring your past experiences, emotions, and behaviors you can gain a new perspective and move closer to the life you want and deserve.
I’m an LGBTQ-allied provider and value inclusion and diversity. Through an egalitarian relationship, empathic understanding, and unconditional positive regard, I will help you move towards your personal goals and improve your overall health and wellness. Every person has a story. I am here to listen to yours and better understand your subjective world and experiences. I believe therapy is best approached holistically, looking at the whole person, as there is a strong relationship between physical, mental, and social health. This is your life, your story, and your dreams and goals. I am here to help empower you to reach your personal best in all aspects of your life.
