Jennifer Martin Rieck is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and the owner of Epijennetics Counseling & Consulting in Libertyville, Illinois. In addition to practicing Schema Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, she also has a passion for bringing the principles of Mental Health and Psychology to every day situations, relationships, and stories through writing. Having personal experience with divorce and remarriage, having a blended family, and being a step-mother, adoptive mother, and biological mother, Jenn understands the complicated nature of relationships and the obstacles and challenges that sometimes make relational and emotional health a struggle.
With the philosophy that personal growth is most likely to occur in those who can sustain a posture of humility, introspection, and curiosity, she hopes to inspire others towards this posture. Using inspiration from her own life experiences, and pulling information from her education in Mental Health, she hopes to inspire and educate others in a way that empowers them to experience grace, growth, and connection, whether that be through Epijennetics, the website, or through working together in counseling.
