Jenny Parella, LMHC
Licensed Mental Health Counselor
I specialize in working with children, teens, and adults. My areas of focus include depression, anxiety, stress, grief, self-esteem, life transitions, anger management, caregiving, managing perfectionism, gifted, weight/disease management, and overall health and wellness. With over 20 years of experience working with kids and teens, I’ve found that getting them to do well at home or school is achieved through a focus on improved self-esteem, social skills, and emotional insight.
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 allows for the perfect blend of gentle activity while engaging in your typical therapy session.
Clients who seek my expertise typically struggle with managing stress or health issues. They are motivated to seek change and value a supportive, non-judgmental approach but also want someone to address the behaviors, thoughts, beliefs, and habits that are getting in the way of their goals. We can work together to identify your strengths, motivations, and uniqueness helping the mind and body to work together.
