About this week's special guest: Jenny Stevens

Jenny Stevens, LCPC (Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor) spent 20 years working with adolescents and families as a school counselor. In 2021, Jenny launched Create Change Consultants to provide counseling for individuals navigating major life events, such as divorce, or those looking to create change within their lives.

Jenny knows firsthand the challenges of major life changes. From attending nine schools in the span of twelve years, losing her father at the age of nineteen, learning as an adult how to cope with her mother’s fading mental health, and going through her own divorce, Jenny has tremendous insight into dramatic change and how to cope.

As a therapist, Jenny brings a warm, inviting and unique style to interactions with her clients. She cares deeply about helping and supporting her clients to make the changes they have always wanted, but didn't possess the motivation and inspiration needed to do so. In addition to her private practice, Jenny works with Vesta Divorce to provide support through complementary events, education and trainings to those navigating the divorce process, including children.
