Jen Ratajczak, MA, LCMHCS, NCC She/Her/Hers

Jen has always had an interest in identity development and much of her professional focus has been adolescent/young adult issues, complex interpersonal trauma and assisting with developmental life transitions. She started her career working in child/adolescent inpatient mental health which has contributed to a deep appreciation for the complexity of the interplay between our life experiences, the things passed down to us transgenerationally and our unique genetic makeup. This work naturally led to ongoing experience with survivors of abuse and adverse childhood events. Though gender-related stress is the center of her practice, she also specializes in anxiety and other regulation problems that impact interpersonal functioning. Much of her training has been trauma-focused, minority stress oriented and accounts deeply for the mind-body connection. Jen views therapy as a partnership with clients in which the therapist is a tool clients can use to help to remove barriers and heal from past injury to access the deeper parts of their authentic self.  Sometimes, and often with youth, part of this work involves finding ways in which to effectively communicate with parents and loved ones to be best understood and supported. With a trusted guide, therapy can be a safe space in which to explore our stories, become grounded in ourselves and gain confidence and direction as we emerge into new chapters in our lives.
