Jen Walker | Woodstock

LMSW

Jen works with adults, couples, teens, and pre-teens, providing counseling for those experiencing anxiety, depression, psychosis, or substance abuse. She also works with people who are struggling to cope with a difficult life experience such as a chronic health issue, recent loss, relationship or school problem, or other life transition. With over 12 years of counseling experience, Jen believes that radical change is possible through effective therapy. She has experience with a variety of treatment modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), mindfulness, motivational interviewing, harm reduction, psychodynamic, and solution-focused brief treatment. She keeps up-to-date with the latest evidence-based research and practices in the field and uses a strengths-based approach to therapy.

It can be hard to take the first step in deciding to pursue therapy, but Jen believes that feeling understood and supported by your therapist will allow you to develop the courage and skills to grow and change. She offers a free, brief phone consultation for all clients and has evening hours available, if needed.
