About Jenene:

Extensive clinical and supervisory experience in community and university settings informs my approach to my administrative role as the Clinic Director of The Family Therapy Center of Virginia Tech, as well as my approach to research and teaching.  My current research focus is relationship education for low income and ethnic minority individuals and couples.  This aligns with my clinical interests of serving individuals, couples, and families presenting with adverse childhood experiences, substance use disorders, grief/loss, and related issues that occur during life transitions.  I am an American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) Clinical Fellow and Approved Supervisor, a Virginia Board of Counseling Approved Supervisor, and a Qualified Supervisor in Florida for registered interns seeking licensure for marriage and family therapy or mental health counseling.  I maintain licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist in Florida and Virginia, and I am also trained to facilitate The Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program (PREP) relationship education curriculum.
