Hi, I’m Jenn Aardsma. I believe deeply in the power of relationships for growth and healing. If we have the privilege of working together, I will listen attentively to understand your experiences. When applicable, I will seek to help you recognize and develop your strengths and skills to respond effectively to life’s many difficulties and opportunities.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Master’s in Human Services and Master’s of Counseling degrees. I work with individuals, families, couples, teens, and children to help with anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder, anger, grief, coping skills, mood disorders, personality disorders, impulse control, relationship challenges, marriage difficulties, and concerns regarding sexuality. I customize my approach to each clients’ unique needs. I sometimes include techniques such as mindfulness, client-centered therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, psycho-dynamic therapies, and self-psychology in our work together.
Prior to my current practice at Two Roads, my experience as a counselor includes work in a community mental health setting, a local hospital, and a private group practice. I’ve facilitated hundreds of growth groups focused on a wide range of emotional and relationship issues. I’ve seen firsthand how helpful groups can be, and I love being part of that process.
I am currently completing a certification in sex therapy. Sex and sexuality are such important and vulnerable parts of the human experience, and I enjoy bringing openness, compassion and informed expertise to this sometimes-lonely subject.
