The Jenny Journal
To receive updated blog post notification, please subscribe here.
Jenny has a running joke with her clients that they will put of their learned therapy tools and completed therapy homework assignments in their “Jenny Journal.” Given she specializes in treatment-resistant, spunky teens and young adults, most clients roll their eyes or even fake writing in a journal that will never exist. However, some of her (favorite) clients do actually possess said journal and in fact, find it helpful to use it for the purpose of recording session gems gleaned.
Here you will find a growing database of resources in a corner of our site coined the “Jenny Journal.” While the topics will be relevant to the trends we are seeing in the therapeutic community, in parenting, and in our ever-changing world, the posts sometimes might just be Jenny’s thoughts, because she “said so” (another common therapy tactic used by Jenny on the regular).
Have a question? You can request a topic be written about that is relevant to your current situation. Happy reading and remember, you can always record your reactions to the posts in your own “Jenny Journal.”
