JENNIFER L. FAVELL, M.A., PH.D., LPC, Trauma and Grief Therapist

Holistic trauma treatment. My expertise is in supporting families and friends who have lost loved ones in violent ways–suicide, crash, natural disaster, homicide, overdose, or medical complications. I see sexual assault victims and abuse survivors, people who want to heal. I teach mindfulness practices. I am trained in and use EMDR.

Young-senior adults. I see people who are deeply grieving. I see professionals whose careers are at risk or in need of a tune-up; people going through divorce or the painful breakup of a relationship; parents who need guidance with younger generations; people in other major life transitions; and individuals who seek better understanding, communication, and the tools to grow their relationships and reestablish trust and intimacy.

Let’s look at who you are today, where you might want to go, what holds you back and what might help. Let’s restore and develop self-esteem based on understanding who you are. We’ll start with today and then look deeper at what has happened in the past and how it affects your future. We will focus on what is and is not working and will build on your strengths with compassion and respect for your unique journey. We will build active listening skills, stress management skills, and skills for reconnecting with parts of yourself that are carrying heavy burdens. We will find authentic balance and self-respect, step-by-step building resiliency so you can nurture deep intimacy with those you choose to be in your life.

With 30 years of experience in the mental health field, I’ve taught and counseled preschool teachers, parents, gang-affiliated teens, medical school students, public prosecutors, criminal defense attorneys, victims assistance staff members, mental health therapists, judges and many, many clients.  I continue to learn from all. That’s what grounds my passion for this work.
