Teen-Whisperer, Adult-Helper, Couple-Collaborator

jenny wang

Mom of four, wife to one, and counselor to many, Jenny is a natural with families. And, she has a knack for working with teens. The teen brain is actively changing and growing. While this active growth in the prefrontal cortex brings about the stereotypical moodiness and impulsivity, it is also a wonderful period of creativity and rapid learning. Jenny truly is the teen-whisperer. She thinks it’s a privilege to help adolescents navigate their overwhelming emotions in a healthier ways, knowing the benefits to them are long term.

As a second generation Asian American, one of Jenny’s passions is helping bridge the cultural and generational difficulties of immigrant parents and their bi-cultural children.  Because of her diverse background, she is able to understand the different struggles and apprehension to accept outside help that may be an obstacle to change. Jenny thinks that just by innately understanding that struggle, she can help this population take the step towards a healthier life.

What Past Clients Have Said

“I cannot thank you enough for all you have done to help my son get out of his own way (sort through his pain) and to stand taller in the midst of a storm. I’m so glad I pushed my husband to agree begrudgingly to send him to counseling. I always knew my little guy was still in there and he just needed a little push and someone to spend the time he so desperately needed. Thank you for being a part of our life and also investing in my son.”


“Jenny, I would like to thank you for getting our 15 year old son thru the toughest year last year.  As an update, in his new school, he has returned to his normal cheerful self and does not appear to be depressed any more.  He has adjusted very well, to the point we had one teacher tell us she didn’t even know he was new, as he just fit in from day one. He has many friends and actually gets up by himself in the morning, excited for school. He is getting straight A’s in all pre-AP courses. Thank you again for all you did for our family. If we ever need help, we will reach out to you again. Take care.”


“Hi!  I’m currently in my (college Freshman) psychology class and we are learning about the amydala and hippocampus today.  I got excited because I already know this since you taught me about them. I’m doing so well up here, I could never thank you enough for all you did to help me through my anxiety and stressful year last year.  I hope the rest of the year is good to you and everyone at ICC!”
