JENTRY’S PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE
Jentry’s trauma-informed training initially occurred in 2014 as part of her introduction into working with Community Works client victims of sexual assault. She completed her Bachelor of Science with internship at Dunn House, a local and confidential residential facility for victims of domestic abuse including sexual, physical, and emotional violence. Jentry currently tailors her trauma-informed counseling approach to the Cycle of Abuse when these concerns are presented by clients. Training through Community Works has also provided her with clinical skills in suicide prevention and crisis intervention.
Through her work with victims of direct and indirect abuse as well as various forms of trauma, she aspires to guide individuals in living safe, meaningful, powerful, and independent lives as defined by each unique individual. Jentry is a member of the American Counseling Association (ACA) and American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA).
