Holistic Therapeutic Services, PLLC would like to welcome you to our family and thank you for allowing us to be part of your family on your journey to healing. We offer both in home counseling (in the greater grand rapids area) and online tele-medicine (video) counseling. We also have a life coaching chat service if you are not in need of counseling at this time but would like encouragement in making a healthier lifestyle for yourself. Holistic Therapeutic Services, PLLC, recognizes the value of our four legged family members and encourages the human animal bond for therapy. We have created an Emotional Support Animal certification program, to certify that you need your pet to support you in therapy. This certification can be used for access to the Fair Housing Act and Airline travel.
Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to get to know more about me. My name is Jennifer, I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in the State of Michigan. I earned a master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling and have been practicing in the mental health field for over ten years. I have worked in a variety of settings; schools, prisons, home-based, outpatient, crisis response, addiction centers and private practice. I have the most experience working with complex trauma/abuse issues, PTSD, anxiety, depression, conflict resolution, family conflict, and substance abuse. I also have experience working with multicultural, physically disabled, youth, elderly, and LGBTQ populations.
I use a person-centered, holistic, multicultural, and eclectic approach in treatment, providing you with the best care tailored to your needs. I use evidence-based techniques including cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, seeking safety, “classical” counseling and solution-focused counseling. I would describe myself as direct, but I am always empathetic, non-judgmental and supportive. I can push you past your comfort zone to resolve the goals you have set for yourself in therapy to assist you in creating a new healthy lifestyle!
Working together we can accomplish your goals. Thank you again, I look forward to meeting you and beginning your journey of self-awareness and healing.
Jennifer Barajas, MS, LPC
