About Jaleessa Kennedy

Hello there! My name is Jaleessa, feel free to call me Jay. Kuddos for taking the step to gain more information on our services here at Elite DNA. My role with the company as an associate therapist is to help guide my clients to increase personal awareness and develop skills to help regulate emotions in times of distress. Pulling from mostly Dialectal Behavior Therapy and Gestalt therapy, mindfulness, improving functioning in personal relationships, and encouragement to live in the present moment lay the groundwork for therapeutic experience. I incorporate various techniques from Play Therapy as well while working with my younger clients. I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental space for all my clients to feel comfortable and welcomed. YOU are the expert of your own life, and our work together will be driven by your personal needs and comfort level at all times.
