Dr. Jenn Self

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Hello, I am Dr. Jenn Self and I am thrilled to be joining the McNulty Counseling and Wellness practice. As a recent transplant to Saint Petersburg from St. Louis, Missouri, I am looking forward to your suggestions on the best places to eat and fun activities to try!
My educational background includes a doctoral degree in couple and family therapy from Saint Louis University and a master’s degree in counseling from the University of Missouri-St. Louis. Most recently, I completed a masters degree in nursing and am training to become a psychiatric nurse practitioner in order to provide more holistic services to my clients including both counseling and medication (where indicated).
I have been providing mental health counseling and couple therapy for more than 15 years and am a former director and assistant director of two collegiate mental health centers. Additionally, I have served as an adjunct instructor and supervisor for counselors in training.
Primarily, I see adult clients (college age and up) for individual and couple therapy. My areas of passion and specialization include:
  • Couple Therapy. I have a sex positive perspective and welcome all types of couples, including married, partnered, LGBT, and polyamorous.
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • LGBT (including documentation for gender affirming treatments)
  • Empowerment and Assertiveness
  • Existential concerns (e.g., finding meaning and purpose, coping with loss)
  • Career Development
  • Emotional Support Animal (ESA) assessment and documentation
  • Telemental Health
My approach to therapy involves integration of psychological neuroscience research findings and evidence-based techniques within a humanistic framework. I incorporate elements of CBT, DBT, Narrative Therapy, mindfulness, and positive psychology. For couple work, I pull heavily from systems theory, attachment theory, and emotionally-focused therapy.
Above all, I find that co-creating a trusting and caring therapeutic relationship with clients is the foundation of successful therapy. I am more directive in my approach and will actively work with you to discover ideas and strategies for bettering your life. I strive to be approachable, genuine, and caring with my clients and enjoy use of humor in our work together.
