Jenna Verenka, Masters of Nursing

Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

About

Hello, I am a Nurse Practitioner currently practicing in acute psychiatry and I have also practiced in the Primary Care Setting, and helped patients who are new to experiencing anxiety and depression, sort out if its a medical issue or a psychiatric one. I work across the life span, and with a variety of mental health challenges, and my main approach is through a blend of Acceptance and Committment therapy, CBT and positive regard for each person, that you are resourceful and whole....and sometimes require knowledgeable evidence based care.

My Core Values and Desires

Growth & Innovation, Courage and Boldness, Vitality and being At Ease,

I deeply value being able to model to my clients  Psychological flexibilty, deep focus and clear mindedness

I am committed to excellence, determined, dynamic

I love to talk about Possibilies and I am usually quite curious.

A Bit About My Approach to 1:1 Therapy

I am interested in inviting you to take a look at a new perspective, are you interested in doing that? Ok Good! So we will take time to practice a short mindfulness exercise together, and from here I want to know...Who and Whats important to you? I want to know what you to to avoid what is important to you..then I want you to start to NOTICE. I work with people to build their ability to have a new perspective, or a "SHIFT."  I also use exercises to help you move towards your goals, and into committed action. I help clarify ..Whats possible? and What you want to feel? We work towards your most important values and clarify them. This can be accomplied via skype.

If you are an auditory learner or prefer to listen, I will be lauching a podcast monthly starting Aug 2016.. called Core Leadership:  

The first session will be on the topic of A Flexible and Intelligent Approach to Management of Depression...Stay tuned!
