ABOUT ME

My name is Jenny Stilley and I look forward to helping you move forward and reach your therapeutic goals. Sometimes we can feel stuck as if our emotions control us. I look forward to helping you work through emotions to improve relationships and to live a more fulfilling enjoyable life. I approach my clients with warmth, authenticity, and understanding in a safe non-judgmental environment. I use evidence-based treatments to achieve immediate results and long-term recovery. 

 

I utilize a psychodynamic approach assisting clients in reaching their goals by gaining insight into past experiences that continue to affect today. I work with individuals to build healthy coping skills and to achieve freedom from these experiences. 

 

I have experience working with anxiety, depression, postpartum depression, trauma, crisis, personality disorders, mood disorders, suicidal ideation, intellectual disabilities, life-skills, chronic pain, LBTQIA+, and self-esteem. Making the decision to attend therapy can be difficult. Choose to call me for a free 15-minute phone or in-person consultation.

Individual counseling is a personal journey to receive support and experience growth during challenging times in life. Counseling can help one explore many personal topics in life like depression, anger, trauma, parenting, school, anxiety, LGBTQI+, substance abuse, interpersonal relationships, and career changes.  

Counseling is a process through which clients work with a trained clinical mental health counselor in a safe, caring, nonjudgmental, and confidential environment. Counseling allows individuals to explore past memories that impact current feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. The therapist will assist client in identifying desired goals of therapy, gaining insight about themselves, and overcoming obstacles.

As a parent it can be difficult to watch your child suffer through depression, anxiety, school difficulties, friendship problems, divorce, and custody issues. You feel helpless in knowing how to best support your child. Child counseling provides a warm, non-judgmental, and validating environment to assist your child in expressing feelings and thoughts around current struggles. I work to develop and encourage self-responsibility and self-worth, improve interpersonal relationship skills, and build healthy coping skills for emotional regulation. Counseling equips children to tap into their individual passions, experience joy, and relieve stress for parents. I use Play Therapy, Sand-tray Therapy, Art Therapy, BrainWise, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy or other therapeutic interventions best suited for your child.
