Jacqueline Owens, Student Intern

Throughout my life I have seen people experience significant hardships and work to cope with those hardships. Thankfully, dealing with the struggles that we all have is not something we have to do alone. I aim to create an environment where you can truly be yourself without judgement. In our time together, I hope to work alongside you and provide you with the tools you need to see real change and growth. 

In the counseling room you can expect to receive empathy and experience safety. I think it’s important that we all have a space where we can safely share our thoughts and feelings and be heard. I bring a holistic perspective to counseling. Many of our problems are complex and require us to take into consideration all aspects of who we are, some problems even stem from traumatic experiences. I desire to walk alongside you as you tackle your problems and make sense of your experiences. My goal is for your hope to be restored through the work of the Lord and the healing process of counseling.
