Jessie Jensen, M.S. holds a Masters Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and, pending application review by the Georgia Composite Board of Professional Counselors, she will become an Associate Professional Counselor (APC) this summer in 2022.

Jessie also enjoys providing community outreach and talking to various groups and entities on a large scale, through presentations, social media, and events.
Jessie holds a Master’s degree (MS) in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Georgia State University. At the University of North Georgia, she received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a double minor in Honors Research and Innovation and Business Administration. While attaining her master’s degree, Jessie completed her internship and practicum experience at Kennesaw State University’s Counseling and Psychological Services. Jessie recognizes that coming to therapy for the first time can be scary and aims to create an accepting and empowering environment through the counselor-client relationship. Her approach to therapy is focused on acknowledging that negative thoughts, experiences, and emotions are a part of the human experience and works with her clients to find ways to respond in a productive manner. Jessie is being supervised by Jen Powell, LPC, CPCS.
Jessie was born and raised in metro Atlanta. In her spare time, Jessie enjoys playing and listening to music, crocheting animals and blankets, participating in craft fairs, reading, and going to concerts. She plays both piano and violin and is classically trained in both, though now after years of music competitions mostly plays for fun. Jessie has two goldendoodles and loves dogs and will stop to say hi to any dog whenever possible.
