Graduate Counseling Intern
Supervised by Jill Baumgarner, LPC
Jaala (she/her) strives to provide hope, empathy, respect, and unconditional support without judgement. With an attachment lens, her therapeutic approach is strength-based and solution-focused. She enjoys integrating a variety of treatment modalities including cognitive-behavioral interventions, mindfulness, and person-centered therapy. Jaala is sex and body positive, and LGBTQ+ affirming. Most importantly, she meets her clients where they are in their journey towards personal and emotional growth.
Jaala’s compassion towards others is what drives her to collaborate with clients who are facing anxiety, trauma, depression, difficulty with transitions, relationships, self-harm, and self-esteem. She guides clients to discover any deeper issues that are influencing their daily lives and relationships. She believes that clients can maintain mental health wellness using their resources and finding healthy coping mechanisms to manage these obstacles.
Jaala is currently working toward her Master of Arts in Counseling at St. Edwards University, and plans to seek licensure as an LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) following the completion of her graduate degree in 2023. As a lifelong learner, she remains open to educating herself in new theories and methods for meeting her client’s needs and experiences.
Jaala is supervised by Jill Baumgarner, LPC.
Jaala's rate is $45 for a 50-minute session and $70 for an 80-minute session.
