North Star Counseling

Hi! I'm Jen. 

Deciding to begin counseling is a brave step. Deciding who to choose as a counselor can be overwhelming. So, let me tell you a little bit about who I am and what I do so you can gauge if we might be a good fit.

I have my own private practice with an office in Mentor, Ohio. I specialize in working with anxiety and general life transitions (loss, divorce, career, school). I treat clients age 13 through adulthood. My most common clients tends to be teenage to young adult women with anxieties and parents trying to cope with parenthood. I enjoy working with one-on-one family sessions to improve relationship quality. I have a background in the arts and use creativity and art in sessions if and when clients desire this additional intervention. I am licensed in both Ohio and Pennsylvania. 

I work from the framework that our childhood learning experiences impact our decisions and responses to the world around us. When those experiences are better understood, we can heal. When we begin to heal,  we start to live a life that aligns with who we really are, and not a reaction what we have been through. 

I offer my clients a warm, open space, free of judgment, in which they can explore their own life stories and find their own inner wisdom. 

I look forward to working with you.

With gratitude,
