Jenny Adamson, Therapist and Mental Performance Mastery Certified Coach
If you have clarity or are unsure about reaching for guidance and support, I encourage you to continue on this path in adding counseling or coaching to your journey. I am saying this from a personal and professional standpoint. Prior to becoming a counselor, I was a client and therapy was a critical part of my recovery and healing. I recommend that you review the profiles of several providers, it is important to have a fit and connection with your counselor and/or coach.
My background is diverse, with a specialty in counseling and education and more recently additional experience in the business world. I began my professional path in education (special education) and from there moved into counseling. I have over 20 years of experience in counseling and several years of experience in education as a special education teacher.
About 10 years ago, I ventured out into the business world and gained experience in real estate and finance/insurance. The reason for sharing this business piece of my background is: I learned another level of adversity as making a career change and learning “new worlds” was more difficult than I imagined (I am also a mom of two amazing boys, who were younger during this time). This experience in business has given me an additional perspective in working with my clients in the business world and also in resiliency.
When Covid hit, as many others experienced, a lot of life changes began taking place. Due to the fast-paced changes taking place (and I also missed providing counseling), I joined the world of virtual counseling. I have been continuing to grow in my counselor role, including adding experience as a virtual counselor and additional training and experience in mindset coaching.
In addition to a Professional Clinical Counselor, I am also a Mental Performance Mastery Certified Coach through Brian Cain’s Mental Performance Mastery Course, a Certified Personal Trainer through ISSA, and have my Online Coaching Certification through ISSA.
As a counselor and coach, I do my best to meet my clients where they are and gain an understanding of their life including areas of concern and strengths. I believe counseling and coaching is about understanding the many different aspects of a person and developing a plan of healing, growth, and steps to reach their goals. My approach often combines perspectives from cognitive behavioral strategies, holistic/mindful strategies, and spirituality - from a systems perspective. I have also included learning from resources that are specific to working with athletes -- including a podcasts, videos, and books such as: Heads-Up Baseball, Life with Breath, The Mindful Athlete, Energy Bus, Training Camp, The Carpenter, and The Mind Gym.
Everyone is unique and the strategies, approach, and goals are client-driven. I work primarily with teenagers (high school age and older) and adults in individual counseling and coaching.
The following are some of my main areas of experience: increasing coping strategies related to anxiety, stress, and depression, ADHD strategies to help increase focus, increasing grounding and mindfulness habits, increasing connection and spirituality, resiliency strategies, boundary work, and mindset strategies including to help increase a growth mindset. The main email that I will be using is firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a HIPAA compliant email (and is the reason that you are asked to create a password). Regarding my license and certification, if you live in Ohio, I am able to provide counseling or coaching. But, if you live outside of Ohio, I am only able to provide coaching. This is an area that we can discuss further during our initial appointment.
One of my favorite quotes: Ego says, "Once everything falls into place, I'll feel peace." Spirit says, "Find your peace, and then everything will fall into place." - Marianne Williamson
I look forward to working with you.
