Jen Watts, M.Ed., ALC, NCC


Born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, Jen holds a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Birmingham-Southern College and a Master of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Montevallo. She is a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and is currently under supervision as an Associate Licensed Counselor (ALC) in the state of Alabama. She is drawn to the humanistic and person-centered therapeutic approaches and strives to support her clients as they become creative and self-actualized individuals while in the safety of a therapeutic relationship. She believes it is a sacred experience to listen with an open mind and an empathetic heart as clients embody vulnerability and courage while pursuing their fullest potential. When words may seem inadequate or too difficult to be spoken, she provides clients with creative interventions such as breathwork, relaxation and grounding techniques, expressive arts therapy, and play therapy modalities like sand tray therapy. She works collaboratively with her clients to provide personalized, evidence-based therapies while supporting them in their quest to become congruent and autonomous agents of their own lives. Jen desires to support a diverse constellation of individuals discover their true selves as they embark on their recovery journey.
