Dr. Annie Stokesberry PSY D Therapy Group

Jenna Palumbo, LPC is a graduate of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology who specializes in child & adolescent psychotherapy. Ms. Jenna has mental health experience providing play therapy with physically/emotionally challenged children and their families. She has held a position in an adolescent hospitalization program targeting school anxiety and school refusal, as well as experience in private practice working with children as young as 5 years old, adolescents, young adults, and parents looking for strategies to better understand & manage their child’s distress.
Ms. Jenna has experience leading psycho-educational groups for children, teens, and parents, social skills groups for children, as well as acceptance groups for adolescents. She relies on parent involvement to better meet the child’s needs and provide relief for the entire family system. “When one link in the system is struggling, the rest of the family has to adapt. I find it beneficial to incorporate the entire family, especially the parents, into the therapeutic process to generate lasting change and successfully manage the shifts in dynamics as we work towards finding the ‘new normal’ together.”

Ms. Jenna has assisted working with children, adolescents, young adults, and families who are managing anxiety, OCD, depression, ADHD, gender issues, suicidal thoughts, opposition/defiance behaviors, self-harm, mood disorders, and autism spectrum disorder. She utilizes a person-centered approach while using evidence-based techniques to catapult the progress and create lasting change.

Ms. Jenna’s Philosophy

“Children, teens, and families face immense pressure between work, school, and extra curricular activities. When the stress piles on we tend to revert back to our worst patterns of behavior, which might lead to a decrease in family time, lack of healthy coping behaviors, emotional dysregulation, and a low tolerance for distress. My aim is to normalize the minds automatic and, often, unhealthy defense mechanisms to increase each client’s ability to successfully manage life’s stressors, navigate their own emotional reactions, and create a healthier balance in their life. ”
