About Jenna

Jenna DeCou, MFTJenna DeCou is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who specializes in working with teens and parents.

Let’s help you reach your goals…

As a kid, I was always getting in trouble for talking too much in class and being overly friendly to those around me, but luckily, those same qualities have led me to have an incredibly fulfilling career as a mental health professional. I am a therapist, clinical supervisor, and fitness instructor who enjoys spending my time building relationships and connections with others. This path has always given me a sense of fulfillment that I’ve been unable to find in any other way.

As a therapist, I am dedicated to joining you on your journey to creating your best life—mind, body, and soul—a life that feels empowering, exciting, and aligned with all that you value. Together, we can uncover and build-up your strengths in a way that allows you to move through challenges and difficulties with skill and confidence.

I have had a wide variety of experience in my career, working to create positive outcomes for individuals, families, and groups across many settings. Some areas in which I specialize include anxiety, depression, relational struggles, body image and eating disorder challenges, suicidality, identity formation, mindfulness and self-care, and much more. As someone who has actively engaged in, and is always working on, my own self-discovery, and ways in which to live my life to the fullest, I truly believe we hold the answers to our own happiness.

It is my mission as a therapist to provide a supportive, safe, and empowering environment in which to help you uncover your own fortitude, resilience, and zest for life.
