Today we’d like to introduce you to Jennifer Teubl.
Jennifer, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Similar to the reflections my clients and I make in therapy, for me, it all started at home. Growing up, I was not only the peacekeeper in the family when needed, but I also loved spending time connecting with my siblings and parents. Throughout school, I was given opportunities to be a peer mediator which started the work of helping others problem solve during their tough and personal challenges. Because of the strong support that I have always received during my life, and having the ability to have important and needed conversations, I developed a passion for helping others work through their most personal matters.
I earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology and a Master’s of Science in Applied Psychology with a focus on Clinical Counseling. Post graduation, I’ve had the privilege of working in a variety of settings with many populations, beginning with an agency, providing therapy for adolescents in Foster Care. Simultaneously, I was expanding my focus in various departments of the agency to also work with a local Drug Court, leading groups for drug offenders working towards rehabilitating their lives and maintaining recovery from drugs and alcohol.
The experience of leading an addiction group led me to work full-time as an Outpatient Chemical Dependency therapist at a psychiatric hospital.
My time at the hospital ended when a colleague approached me about joining a group practice, almost four years ago. I was thrilled to have a new opportunity to do therapy with individuals, families, and couples. Since then, I’ve opened up my solo practice in Atlanta where I have the honor to assist clients to be their best selves, discover their strengths, and walk through healing pain from the past. I can say that I truly enjoy what I do and the people I meet.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Professionally, the bump in the road was the transition from the face-pace of a hospital to the much slower and deeper work of individual therapy in private practice. I struggled to slow down and wanted to race through the client’s goals and check off boxes to show that they were making progress and that I was being an effective therapist. Through my own reflection, I have come to know that everyone heals at their own pace, and the journey itself can be the biggest reward. It allowed me to be more present and really become aware of what was important – making connections.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Jennifer Teubl Counseling – what should we know?
The therapeutic services I provide include Individual and Couples counseling. I strive to provide a safe, comfortable space for people to share, understand, and grow. The areas I specialize in are anxiety, depression, traumatic stress, and CEN for adults (Childhood Emotional Neglect). CEN is a factor from childhood that is a parent’s failure to respond enough to a child’s emotional needs. Many client’s seeking therapy for CEN feel like they don’t belong, have trouble in their relationships, and it determines how they treat themselves. I am proud to be able to help clients to see their potential, develop methods of practicing self-compassion, and validate their experiences. I strive to provide support for clients while also gently challenging when needed.
Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
Along the way, I’ve had so much support from my family. I am so grateful for them as they have encouraged me every step of the way. My colleagues, over the years, have always been a wonderful sounding board, personally and professionally. We really do support one another through the good times and the bad. The client’s I’ve had the pleasure to work with are inspirations to me because they show up with courage to improve themselves each and every session.
