Licensed Social Worker
Hi! I’m Jasany Jenkins, a Licensed Social Worker (LSW) at Horizons Counseling Services. I received a Master of Science in Social Administration and I am licensed by the Ohio Counselor, Social Worker and Marriage & Family Therapist Board (lic. # S.1700679). I’ve pursued my passion of assisting children and young adults manage and preserve their mental health in outpatient, school, community, and group settings.
In my practice, I strive to help children externalize their problems and develop emotional intelligence in fun and creative ways. Mindfulness and trauma-informed care are the foundations of my practice, as I believe these principles are essential building blocks in the development of empathic, resilient, and compassionate human beings. As an eclectic therapist, I select the appropriate framework and intervention that best suits your child. I often pull from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and/or Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) and integrate these principles into traditional talk, narrative, and play therapies. However, before any interventions take place, your child and I will work to develop a therapeutic alliance, setting the groundwork of treatment.
I believe in working within the family system and as a result, I engage parents in their child’s treatment, as appropriate. I primarily work with children age 5 and older and young adults ages 18-22. Most of my experience has been in areas of anxiety, adjustment disorders, ADHD, emotional intelligence and regulation, conflict resolution, and social skill development.
