    About Jen Spencer



    Struggles are a part of life and when trauma occurs most of us feel like we have to survive life alone. We develop ways to protect ourselves and this usually interferes with healthy relationships and self worth. We live in fear of what each day will hold instead of embracing the opportunities for growth and peace in the chaos. I’ve been in the depths of the sea wondering when the storm will pass and waiting for the moment someone would see and acknowledge me. I realized I had to start loving myself and embracing who I am. I am no longer a “peacemaker” and I have embraced the warrior within. Let me help you on the journey to finding your authentic self, the person who can find calm in the crisis, who can set healthy boundaries, and has peace in the moment, knowing the storm will pass and the battle will be won.

    Education and Experience

    I graduated from the University of Nebraska at Omaha with a Master of Science in Community Counseling in 2011 and started practicing counseling in 2009 during my practicum with individuals preparing to leave prison and reenter civilian life and those struggling with substance use and trauma. My experience includes over 14 years of counseling individuals suffering from trauma, mental health diagnosis, and substance use. I have specialized in trauma, specifically attachment and complex trauma, personality disorders, anxiety and fear based conditions, and relationship trauma. I have experience working with both edges of the sword, those who tend to be hurt by others and those who cope by hurting others. 

    I work primarily with adults over the age of 19 years. I will also work with children 4 years old and older struggling with anxiety, overcoming trauma, self-harm or suicidal ideations or other self-sabotaging or self-destructive behaviors, or those dealing with unhealthy relationship dynamics. 

    I am an EMDRIA Approved Consultant, Certified EMDR Therapist, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, and a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist.

    I am a member of the Nebraska Counseling Association and EMDRIA, the EMDR International Association.
