Jennifer Alumbaugh, MS LMFT

Like any finely tuned machine, we ourselves—comprised of mind, body, soul, and spirit—require regular tune-ups. I call it, soul maintenance. Sometimes repairs are needed; sometimes we just need regular check ups to keep everything running smoothly; other times we have to replace the parts that aren’t working; and sometimes most things are going well but we’d really like to amp up that one system or spiff up a particular feature. This is how I like to imagine the coaching process.

 

How is your soul maintenance?

 

 

I am an experienced coach, consultant, speaker, and therapeutic mentor with a Master of Science in Marital & Family Therapy. I specialized in working with adult and adolescents who are moving through and exploring grief, resiliency, depression, identity, recovery, spirituality and beliefs to cultivating a thriving life.

 

I have extensive experience with adolescents in Los Angeles County and in South and Central Texas—in foster care, in the juvenile justice system, and in school settings as a foster parent, therapist/therapeutic mentor, counselor, and coach.In addition to coaching, I am  therapeutic mentor for the Girl Scouts of Central Texas Beyond Bars program—serving a population of girls all of whom have mothers who are in or have been in prison.

 

I love supporting women and individuals who are exploring questions of identity, purpose, values, beliefs, and direction. With compassionate care, concrete coaching, and empowering encouragement I will walk with you through the difficult questions, challenging circumstances, and uncertain seasons. Drawing from Cognitive Behavioral and Solution Focused therapy models I collaborate with you to set goals, establish a course, and make movements toward thriving.

 

I believe you are the expert of your own mind, body, soul, and spirit; my role is to empower you to embrace your expertise and guide your life toward the goals and dreams you foster.

 

 

In addition to counseling and coaching, I immensely enjoy teaching through Professional Development Trainings and Consultation for agencies, organizations, and conferences. In 2015, I was invited as a speaker to provide trainings for Communities in Schools – Heart of Texas in Waco, TX; G. W. Carver Middle School in Waco, TX; Partners in Prevention Conference in Houston, TX; Strengthening Youth and Families Conference in San Marcos, TX. In 2016 I worked with the staff and professionals at Advocacy Center of Waco and Communities in Schools – South Central Texas in New Braunfels, TX with additional trainings forthcoming. My teaching style integrates dynamic didactic elements, a penchant for humor, and engaging exercises to convey information, collaborate solutions, and inspire growth.

 

I am currently completing my MFT licensing process. I received my BA in Theology from Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI and earned my Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from Fuller School of Psychology in Pasadena, CA.

 

I look forward to meeting you and embarking on a journey of healing, growth, insight, and understanding together!
