Jennifer Christian, M.A., LPC
Hi, I’m Jennifer Christian. Welcome! And, thank you for visiting. I am a professional counselor, blogger, and speaker. I have two teenagers and share life’s journey with my husband of almost 25 years.
I provide professional counseling services for individuals and couples. I believe in providing a compassionate space to explore and heal. I have had the honor of speaking on resilience and healing practices at a number of women’s retreats, college lecture series, and couple’s workshops over the past 15 years.
My Counseling Perspective
When you face disappointments, challenges, or loss it is disorienting. When relationships are in turmoil, it feels overwhelming. You may find yourself struggling emotionally, physically, and spiritually. You may even feel stuck and not know where to start.
Choosing to take intentional steps toward healing is a courageous journey. Sometimes it means walking through the pain toward healing. It can also mean letting go of unrealized dreams, adapting to a new normal, and creating possibilities that renew hope for the future.
If you have never experienced counseling before you may be asking how all this comes together or what I can do for you. I provide support, compassion, and encouragement as you seek to heal spiritually, emotionally, and in your relationships. I care deeply about understanding your experience, and providing a place where you do not have to journey alone. I share resources and knowledge so that you can choose what will work best for you. You are the expert on you.
My approaches include Compassion Focused, EMDR, Emotion Focused, Motivational Interviewing, Neurocounseling, Cognitive Behavioral, Solutional Focused, Shame Resilience, and Existentialism.
As a blogger, I hope to be transparent and authentic as I share a common journey toward healing with so many of you. As a fellow human being, I struggle when I go through transitions or experience loss. I practice gratitude and compassion with myself whenever I falter and am continuing to learn that I do not have to do life perfectly. Because of our shared journey, it is important to offer resources for self-care, healthy relationships, and tools for resilience.
Education: I hold a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Abilene Christian University and a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from University of Texas at Tyler with a specialization in Marriage and Family. I have also completed EMDR Approved Basic Training, Emotion Focused Couple’s Therapy Externship, and Advanced Emotion Focused Couples Therapy Core Training.
Memberships: I am a member of the American Counseling Association, Texas Counseling Association, EMDRIA, and International Centre for Excellence in Emotion Focused Therapy.
Experience: In 2012, I cofounded the non-profit counseling agency, Fuller Life Family Therapy, with Dr. Amy Fuller and am a current board member. I also provided counseling services at Fuller Life from 2012-2015. In 2011, I provided counseling services with the non-profit counseling center, Shield Bearer in Cypress, Texas. I also provided crisis stabilization for sexual assault and domestic violence at Katy Christian Ministries from 2012-2014.
Personal: I enjoy chocolate, walking, yoga, reading, hanging out with my kids, time with my church family, friends, and sharing life’s journey with my husband.
