ABOUT ME

Jennifer Madrigal Counseling

 "Blessed be ... the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we may be able to comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God." 2 Corinthians 1: 3,4.  

Because I have been comforted by God, I now am able to comfort those who struggle. I was raised in Bolivar, Missouri, a small town that I call the "buckle of the Bible Belt." Although wonderful in many ways, the Bible Belt can unknowingly create an atmosphere of congratulating the "perfect," while shaming those who don't meet the standard. I struggled with this roller coaster of highs and lows for years until truly learning an identity outside of my successes and failures. I do praise God for my failures, my stumbles, and my dark days because now I am able to comfort others with the comfort I have received.

Therapy that Works

I have worked in elementary schools doing school social work and community mental health clinics working primarily with children and families.  I have lived in Omaha since 2010 where I have worked with children, teenagers and individuals in a private practice setting. I specialized in working with children and teenagers, and have earned more than 80 hours in play therapy training and am currently working towards earning my certification as a registered play therapist. 

Let’s face it. It’s difficult to find Christian counselors for kids and teenagers in today’s age. Fortunately, I have over 10 years of experience working with children, teenagers and families.  

Years of Experience

In addition to "life training," I attended Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, Missouri where I graduated Suma Cum Laude with my B.S. in Psychology and Sociology with an emphasis in counseling. I attended Dominican University in Forest Park, Illinois for graduate school where my training was focused on clinical child and family counseling and school social work. In 2006 I received my Master's degree in Social work from Dominican University. It was here that I learned about the meaning of CARITAS when I received the top university honor, "The Caritas and Veritas Award" for living out love and truth in my daily life.
