Jenrow, Atefeh




In the course of my career, I have worked with people including children, adults, and families facing various acute, emerging and/or ongoing mental health challenges. I particularly enjoy working with college students both as newly independent adults and members of the university family facing their own unique trials. I believe in creating a safe and collaborating environment with students on the changes they feel ready to make, focusing on their goals. I have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology form Wayne State University and a Master of Arts in Counseling, specializing in Mental Health Counseling from Oakland University. I have worked with a variety of mental health concerns and have a particular interest in anxiety disorders and trauma. I have also worked as a member of a clinical research team studying schizophrenia. 

I help students using a holistic approach considering physical, psychological, emotional approaches, while working to create a non-judgmental environment. Students can explore their emotional needs by focusing on wellness and strengths, while identifying ongoing challenges that they can continue to address.  I feel privileged to be a member of the student's support team by being allowed to assist as they navigate potential career options, mental health concerns and life stages.
