JENNA MOUNTAIN, MA, LPC, CST
COUNSELING DIRECTOR

Jenna believes that the healing process is a collaborative process between the client and the counselor. She has a heart for walking with people from a place of hurting to a place of healing. Healing is God’s work, and she is honored to be a part of the journey. Her goal is to create a safe environment for clients to engage the vulnerable and creative counseling process. Clients’ individuality, beliefs, and unique story will be respected and honored throughout the entire process.

Jenna believes in a holistic approach when working with both individuals and couples. Building awareness and authenticity are key pieces to healing, developing full personhood, and cultivating intimate relationships. She works with both individuals and couples seeking to heal from a variety of issues. She has found the EMDR approach to be comprehensive, efficient, and effective in working with a variety of issues and creative applications. EMDR is her primary form of therapy when working with individuals. As a certified sex therapist, she is passionate about working from a team approach when needed and has a network of multi-disciplinary professionals that she works with on a regular basis. Jenna’s counseling interests include sexual dysfunction, challenges with sexual pain and penetration, affair recovery, emotional regulation, boundaries, life transitions, trauma and abuse, negative life or relationship patterns, and healing from adverse life experiences.
