Jenny Parella, LMHC



Licensed Mental Health Counselor

I specialize in working with teens and adults. I frequently help with low mood, racing thoughts, persistent worries, or feeling unfilled and as though they “should” be happier or doing better. My expertise includes working with major life transitions or loss, managing perfectionism, unresolved pain, relationship/work stress, as well as weight and disease management. With over 20 years of experience working with teens and adults, I’ve found that success is achieved through a focus on improved emotional insight, self-confidence, communication skills and healthy relationships. I use evidenced based treatments to ensure we identify your unique strengths and motivations to achieve your desired outcomes.

Clients who seek my expertise typically feel stuck and are struggling to identify next steps for themselves. My clients are often bright and accomplished individuals motivated to seek change and value a supportive, non-judgmental approach. We can all benefit from someone helping us address the behaviors, thoughts, and habits that are getting in the way of our goals.

In addition to being a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I’m a Certified Health Coach through the American Council of Exercise (ACE) with a background as a Certified Personal Trainer. This allows me to work on health goals while supporting mental and behavioral health. I offer walk and talk therapy sessions on Legacy Trail, which offers the perfect blend of gentle activity while engaging in your typical therapy session.
