I am currently accepting applications from a limited number of LPC-Interns that demonstrate a strong ability to adhere to ethical behavior and are motivated, introspective an eager to learn. Choosing the right supervisor for your LPC internship is critical to your professional development. I am invested in helping you become an ethical and competent therapist. Development is one of the main goals of supervision. The process of supervision involves deepening your therapeutic skills, knowledge of process, theory, ethical standards and application to a variety of clients. Supervision helps by giving you with feedback with case reviews as you grow into your role as a professional counselor.

I am approved by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors to provide supervision to LPC-Interns who are working towards the required practicum hours. Supervision will be based on the guidelines established by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors. I have been licensed as an LPC for 8 years in several different states (I was a military spouse for the last 10 years). I first became licensed in 2004. I took a 5 year break to raise my children. I have been licensed consecutively for the past 5 years. Three years of licensure completed before needing to become a stay-at-home mom. I have worked in a variety of setting from in-patient hospitals, community mental health centers with seriously mentally ill, residential care facilities for children and private practice.

I keep my rates competitive with other supervisors in my area.

Pain affects multiple areas of life, including psychological health, physical health, spirituality, and interpersonal relationships. Jalea believes that because these areas are affected by turmoil they should be addressed and targeted in counseling.

It takes courage to address problem areas and examine painful feelings. Attending counseling does not mean you are weak, but rather that you are strong enough to be vulnerable and move forward. Jalea is passionate about counseling and will respect your vulnerability by creating a safe place for you to work through the problems that can no longer be ignored.

Jalea is currently not accepting new clients for individual counseling at Mending Clinic.
