About Jenna Wonish-Mottin
A Licensed Therapist Here to Guide and Empower You Through Online Counseling
My clients describe me as calm, caring, heartwarming and supportive. I am also empathetic and practical. I aim to be insightful, reassuring, and non-judgmental. Clients have reported feeling like I can provide them with guidance, get them thinking, be flexible, and that they feel comfortable opening up and sharing their world with me (even if it is not always in words). I may be a good fit for a child or adult that is a Highly Sensitive Person as I am understanding, have training in this area, and identify has an HSP myself.
My style of therapy is integrative. My counseling approach is client-centered, humanistic, systemic, creative, and tailored to each adult, teen or child's individual counseling needs. I use what works best for each person, letting individuals choose personal situations they want to explore first as we take things in steps to manage depression, stress, or anxiety and improve their overall wellness.
I am a clinical social worker licensed in Missouri (LCSW#2018027453) and Texas (LCSW#67300). I received my Bachelors degree in Psychology from the University of Evansville in Indiana. I then decided to go back home to Missouri to continue my education and get my MSW from Washington University in St. Louis' highly acclaimed Brown School of Social Work. During this time I took many classes and worked in the field, exploring various areas of social work and therapy. After graduation I worked in rural parts of the St. Louis area and the Hannibal, MO area, providing mental health services to adults, teens, children, and their families in office, in home, in schools, and through telehealth. During this time I was able to obtain training to become a Registered Play Therapist.
I moved to the beautiful Woodlands area of Houston, Texas with my husband and two dogs, which allowed me to get more involved in online counseling and create my own counseling practice, Calm Centered Counseling. It also allowed me to spend time in the warm weather enjoying some of my hobbies such as bike riding, hiking, nature photography, relaxing at the beach, gardening, and music.
Therapy sessions with me will be different for each client and specific to the individual. The frequency and duration will vary. Contact me now to discuss you or your child's counseling needs and schedule a telehealth therapy session.
