Jennings (Jen) Napper enjoys working with children, adolescents, individuals, and couples. Through her counseling ministry, she wants to convey to others their worth and value, knowing that God works in their lives to help them change, grow, and cope during difficult times. In her counseling practice, the models and theories she uses are Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and family systems therapies. 

Jen has an integrative approach to counseling, considering factors from theology, psychology, and biology/neurology as important parts of her counseling practice. Jen eagerly desires to serve God and others through her counseling ministry by offering true hope and wholeness that comes through Jesus Christ. She believes that God desires for all people to know Him and to have an accurate picture of who God is — along with having an accurate picture of themselves.

Jen is an Associate Licensed Counselor. She is trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), helping individuals process trauma, and certified to administer PREPARE/ENRICH Assessments, a tool for pre-marital/marital counseling. She is also trained in Theraplay to help children and families with attachment issues.

She earned her Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Counseling from the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and received her Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Troy University, minoring in Health Promotion.

Jen is married to her husband, Joe, and they live in the Dothan, Alabama, area.
