Clinical Mental Health
My name is Jessie Laurenzi and I am Clinical Mental Health Counselor intern through Whole Hearted Wellness, LLC. I am supervised by Dr. Cindy Anderton, Ph.D., LPC, and AAMFT Approved Supervisor, Shannon Doherty, LMFT. I am currently finishing my Masters of Science degree, in Counseling through the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, with an emphasis on working with couples, families, and clients with trauma. Additionally, I have received training in EMDR, a specialized, trauma treatment modality. I believe in the importance of offering mental health services that meets people where they are at in a wholistic manner.
I believe that everyone is deserving of receiving supportive and non-judgmental mental health services. I teat clients as humans that are capable of learning, growth, and resiliency regardless of life experiences. I value working collaboratively with clients and professional alike, so that, together, we can offer the kindness, dignity, and respect of equitable and inclusive care.
We are all human. Your experiences are valid.
