Who We Are
Essence Realized is a small mental health agency that works with children, teens, adults and families to provide and support: psycho-social skill development, parent coaching & advocacy, psycho-education, and the accessing and utilization of community resources and natural supports.
As a mental health specialist, Jenn is educated and trained in various evidence-based therapeutic modalities. As an agency, we place an emphasis on continued education and professional growth. We strive to remain up-to-date and informed, to be able to provide the most effective service.
At Essence Realized, we operate on the belief that each and every individual we work with has the power to grow and thrive in life and possesses the tools necessary to achieve this growth. We do not seek to impose our own values, ideas or solutions, but work collaboratively with our clients on identifying and developing their own tools, skills, and solutions as they work toward their goals.
We also work in close collaboration with the family/ support systems of the individual in order to promote true, sustainable growth and positive change.
Jenn works within our client's natural environment to provide "in-the-moment" coaching to improve social skills, conflict management, mend relationships, improve emotional regulation, mood management, problem solving, independent living skills, frustration tolerance...and the list goes on. While we employ various therapeutic modalities based on the individual needs of our clients, we rely heavily on positive-based, non-punitive interventions that emphasize strengths and builds on the individual's areas of success.
