Our Founding

After working in schools for decades, Jen saw that today’s teens are facing challenges unlike what other generations have had to face. She founded Teen Talk Counseling in 2022 to help teens manage the overwhelming social and academic pressures of the times.

Teen Talk Counseling is a place where teens can learn ways to honor their feelings, find hope and process what they are experiencing.
