Jennifer Dechene, M. Ed., LAC
Master of Education in Counseling Mental Health
Intake & Assessment Coordinator
Licensed Associate Counselor
Jenn earned her Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from William Patterson University in 2021. She is currently working towards the credentials of her second career as a Licensed Professional Counselor. She spent almost a decade as an elementary and middle school music teacher in Northern Virginia. Having a connection with a person who actively listens and can empathize with your experience is an important piece of the therapeutic process. Throughout her transition from teacher to therapist, Jenn has found establishing this type of connection is something she is passionate about and is a skill that is crucial in both fields. She is passionate about working with children and teens in addition to adults. Therapy is great place to get support, challenge yourself in a supportive and nonjudgmental environment, and heal.
