Jennifer Vannell

Jennifer Vannell, MS, LPCC

My path toward becoming a therapist was long and winding. “What do you want to be when you grow up?” I knew I wanted to listen to people and help them, but I had no idea what that meant at a young age.  I began working with survivors of human trafficking and this opened the door to holding others’ pain and devastation.

therapy style

Take a large pillow. Now stuff that pillow into a tissue box. How can we do this without damaging the box itself? It’s an impossible task, but that’s what a lot of us have tried to do. The tissue box is us, our bodies. The pillow is all the “stuff” we learned we had to carry in life. The box struggles to hold all we’ve tucked away. Therapy is the process of exploring that stuff and clearing space for the things we truly want in our lives. We will begin this process where you are. We will go forward as you are ready. We will do this together, opening doors and allowing our work to unfold. With a calm presence, it is my place to support you while you seek relief and a deeper understanding of yourself.

So, where would you like to begin?
