I am an aspiring psychologist and am very interested in human closeness. The healing power of feeling support and kindness from another human being is unparalleled. I enjoy building communities of mutual support and finding new ways to experience and share with others.
I have had clients come to me for reasons ranging from being stressed out from Finals or needing a bit of a break from little ones to dealing with serious mental illness and/or recovering from trauma. Every reason is valid. I hope I can help provide a healing space in which you feel safe and comfortable, regardless of your reasons for being there. Open to all races, religions, genders, and sexual orientations.
My work asks nothing more than for you to be your truest self in a zone free of judgement or expectation. I have helped facilitate various therapies including animal therapies through which I have seen and experienced first hand what physical contact and affection can provide to someone in need. I feel incredibly lucky to have my own path intersect with those of so many wonderful people, and would love for you to be one of them. It would be lovely to get to know you and accompany you on your journey, even if only for a couple steps.
Some difficult areas in which I have first hand personal experience:
– Surviving sexual assault
– Recovering from emotional abuse
– Living with mental illness (specifically Major Depression, Generalized Anxiety, and PTSD)
– Losing a loved one/parent
Session information from Jenna
I like to play music (requests welcomed) and sometimes light a scented candle. We begin by establishing comfortable consensual communication agreements and let our personal preferences and comfort guide us from there. I encourage my clients to voice their wants and needs and to communicate their intentions as well as goals they may have for our session.
Before having a session we will have a phone conversation to establish rapport and affirm that we are a good fit for one another. For outcalls we will meet in a public place just prior to the session.
FYI: I have a short haired cat. I put her in a separate room during sessions, but if you are badly allergic, please consider requesting an outcall.

**24 HOUR CANCELATION POLICY**
If you have to cancel, please give me 24 hours notice. If you cancel within 24 hours or simply do not show up, I will still charge for the session.
Please respect my work and my time.
