About Me

Personal Profile

Hi, I’m Jenna-Wade, a counselor located in Austin, Texas.  I am an LPC Associate and National Certified Counselor supervised by the founder of ETT®, Dr. Steven Vazquez, LPC - S, LMFT. After working 12 years as a certified sign language interpreter for the Deaf and hard-of-hearing community, I am grateful I was granted the opportunity to return to graduate school and earn a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am a certified ETT® trauma practitioner. Additionally, I have completed ETT® training (levels 1-5) for presenting problems such as ADHD, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, autoimmune disorders, panic disorder, sleep disorders, attachment wounds, and identity issues. I am committed to serving client needs by facilitating a warm, non-judgmental environment that offers skills, supports, and services for healing past wounds, resolving present distress, and embracing a meaningful, joyful life. I believe that connection, education, and transforming emotional states are essential components for lasting transformation. In addition to my role as a therapist, I am a Mom of 5 boys: 2 biological sons, 2 step-sons, and 1 Goldendoodle boy. Thank you for reading a little bit about my story; I would be honored to learn about yours.

Experience

I utilize a psychotherapy integrated approach to counseling with a focus on attachment and trauma-informed care. The primary modality I specialize in is Emotional Transformation Therapy (ETT®). ETT® is a brief, attachment-based, interpersonal approach that can promote rapid outcomes. I am an ETT® certified complex trauma therapist trained in ETT® levels 1-5.

 

I completed a one-year internship at Driftwood Recovery Center (DRC), which provides attachment-based, holistic treatment for individuals, couples, and families. DRC offers individual, family, and group therapy at multiple levels of care. This facility specializes in treatment for individuals with chronic pain, addiction/substance misuse, and co-occurring mental health disorders. I utilized evidence-based theories such as Mentalization-Based therapy (MBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Narrative Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, and Equine Assisted Therapy.

 

I am committed to your treatment being successful; therefore, I continue to engage in training opportunities to continually add to my therapist toolbox.
