About Me

Empowering Others to Live Happier, More Productive Lives. I am Jennifer Evans, LPC, LMHC. I am a board-certified therapist in multiple states and over 15 years of counseling experience. I am passionate about effecting change and helping work with people to achieve insight to gain maximum potential and reach their most desired visions and goals. I know personally and professionally how difficult it is to get here, and I am proud of your first step and commitment to change. I know I can be valued support as we work together to reach success, insight, and overcome emotional and psychosocial stressors.
A little more about me, I was born and raised in Florida, did my undergraduate at Florida State University, and moved to Virginia to Eastern Virginia Medical School, where I studied clinical counseling and received my Master’s in Art Therapy. As a military spouse, we relocated many times. I redeveloped my career each duty station, which gave me a myriad of experiences with various populations and personal insight on how difficult it can be to start over or have to find your place with so many unknowns surrounding you. My passion for treatment is trauma and life experiences that lead us to feel fearful, unsafe, and saddened; sometimes with no explanation as to why we feel the way we do.
I work with my client’s in a person-centered format with cognitive-behavioral underpinnings and psychoeducation to not only work through and build a better understanding of ourselves but the experiences and beliefs that built us and ways to endure and build resiliency to better manager those feelings so they are not as overwhelming in the future. Many times, these thoughts can affect the decisions we make and our current behaviors. We will work through these to build better responses and approaches to behavior that have lasting impacts on success in the future and our relationships.

Written by C.H. on Oct 14, 2020 after counseling with Jennifer for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

I feel so grateful for Jennifer. When my husband and I started counseling with her, our marriage was in rough shape. She's been patient and kind while helping us to recover our relationship. She brings an abundant amount of knowledge to the table. I'm so grateful for her heart and her persistence. Thanks, Jennifer! We appreciate you and thank God for you.
