Jennifer Place, MA, LPC, NCC
Licensed Professional Counselor
My treatment approach is largely cognitive-behavioral in nature, but as an eclectic clinician, I draw from numerous interventions (e.g. ACT, MBSR, narrative, imago, Enneagram). I view my role as a therapist as helping clients to better understand how they get in their own way and unearth their genuine true self. In addition to self-discovery, I am passionate about assisting clients to develop skills that will allow them to have more fulfilling and healthy relationships with others. In my practice, it is essential to collaborate with the client to ensure that my approach is tailored to their needs and preferences.
While I am qualified to address a variety of challenges, I am most interested in treating anxiety, relational issues, eating disorders (binge eating disorder included) and co-dependence. For me, it isn’t about treating a diagnosis, but seeing how unhealthy patterns and masks are limiting authenticity and a meaningful existence.
I began in Private Practice 2010 but relocated to Treeside Psychological Clinic, PC (March 2018). While this is a Christian clinic, I have background seeing clients of all religious beliefs and ethnic/socioeconomic backgrounds providing faith-based treatment only as requested. It is crucial to me that my clients feel safe to be their most uncensored selves.
As a counselor that also has a relationship with Jesus, I believe my role is to guide my clients to explore the role of spirituality in their healing should they choose to do so. My role isn’t as a spiritual mentor, but to help you experience meaningful connection with your creator should you desire to develop your spiritual identity.
