Jen Hargrove, LPC, MAC, SAP

Hargrove Counseling LLC
Trauma/EMDR Certified - Psychological, Academic and SAP Evaluations

I am a LPC who specializes in evaluating and working with individuals who experience trauma, sensory processing issues, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder and PTSD. I am a licensed EMDR provider, Substance Abuse Professional and Master Addiction Counselor.

I bring over 22 years of experience in working with individuals and families struggling with a variety of mental health issues to the clinical setting. I have found that many of my client's presenting symptoms are actually skills their autonomic nervous system put into action to keep them connected and safe. We call this our "Answer" because it was the answer to keeping us safe and connected throughout life. But now life is different, and those skills are getting in the way of their health, connection and life satisfaction.

I have worked with 100's of people helping them find balance in their mind, body and spirit. My methods are different than traditional talk, homework therapy. I work with you to develop an individualized plan that incorporates, non invasive, bottom up research based therapies to desensitize your autonomic response and process unprocessed trauma. It takes motivation on the part of the client, trust in your body that it can heal itself, knowing I am there to support you every step of the way. This therapy is not for everyone and not right for everyone. You must be willing to make an investment in your mental health and take action to achieve balance. My promise, it will be worth the investment!

In addition to counseling, I teach at OTC as an adjunct professor, am a member of the Personal Transformation Institute's Assistant program, Vice President of the board at Infinity Academy and hybrid homeschool my son and daughter. I am a happy mother of a 28 year old son, who has blessed me with a gorgeous grand baby and a 18 year old daughter enjoying her college years.

My Commitment to You

I am passionate about the belief that everyone can feel safe, connected, balanced and achieve what they desire. I ALSO respect that what makes us complicated, also makes us unique and my therapy style might not be for you.

This is why my team and I do a thorough evaluation to allow you to express your needs and together determine what therapy style is right for you and which of our therapists will be the right "fit."

If your needs can't be met by my team, then I will do what it takes to connect you with someone that can help.
