Jennifer L. Watson, MS, LPC-Intern

Jennifer’s personal experiences in counseling and life have led her to want to help those in need. Her eclectic style allows for a counseling approach to develop based on the client, instead of attempting to fit a client to a particular method. She continues to explore as many counseling disciplines she can to build a foundation in the profession, starting with the finalization her certification in Solution Focused Brief Therapy at the beginning of this year. She keeps up with the latest issues in mental health through her memberships with the American Counseling Association, Texas Counseling Association, and Texas Association for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Issues in Counseling. Her client base consists of all ages, but most of her experience has been working with adolescents and young adults. She believes in early intervention as a way to build a strong foundation for future life challenges at any age. Her philosophy stems from the idea that as human beings we are not broken, we are not machines, we may have just stepped off our path. She is a LGBTQQIA+ ally and a mother with a child who has special medical needs.
