Jennifer Eklund, LPC
Licensed Professional Counselor
I’m Jennifer and I am so grateful you’re visiting my profile. Counseling is BIG stuff and it takes courage to start the process. Finding the right therapist for you (or your child/teen) may arguably be the most important part of the counseling process.
There are many reasons someone may be seeking counseling whether it be for the first time, or deciding to restart therapy. You may not be feeling like your usual self lately; lacking motivation, having trouble making decisions, sleeping too much or having trouble falling asleep, or feeling “stuck” in life. You may find your thoughts racing or even notice physical changes such as headaches, weight gain/loss, or generally feeling “off.” Stress seems to be your norm these days and things just feel completely overwhelming. Parents of teens, are you feeling like things are out of control? Maybe your teen is participating in risky behaviors, isolating themselves, struggling academically, constantly fighting with you, and won’t open up about anything. You’re worried about the changes you see and feel it’s time to seek outside help.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Professional School Counselor in Texas, Florida, and Kansas. I see adolescents, teens, and adults aged 12 and up. Here is a little more about me and my therapeutic approach to wellness…
I believe my clients are fully capable of growth and success in the therapeutic process when they work with a therapist that fits their unique needs and work toward specific goals. Therapy provides a safe, non judgemental, restorative environment where lasting change can occur. It is a place to dig a little deeper and come out a whole lot stronger. My approach to therapy looks at the whole person; physical, mental, and social. There are so many factors that affect our mental state; relationships, friendships, diet, exercise, specific habits, past experiences, present stressors, and more! Examining our patterns of behaviors and thoughts can lead to tremendous growth in our overall well being.
