What’s not to love about Jenika? She has such a kind and warm presence, you can tell why she is in this career. She is the type of therapist that will bring a very relaxed, chill vibe. She’s very present and interested, which is nice to have when you need someone to look at your life with you.


I believe my clients know themselves best and my part is to illuminate strengths, point out barriers, and help navigate challenges that are bound to arise in this human experience to bring you closer to your favorite version of yourself.


Jenika works with both Adults and Teens, helping them find the answers to their own questions, and going along the journey of change with her clients.


Jenika is not loud, or brash, or intense. Her energy is more like soothing waters. She will help carry you where you need to go, as long as you are also paddling along.


So, hop in the boat!

Jenika practices a blend of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Acceptance
and Commitment Therapy.
