Dr. Jenna Britt is a licensed professional counselor and mental health service provider in Jackson, Tennessee. She’s the owner and clinical director of ReEnvision Counseling, Inc. and is passionate about serving clients and working in community with other providers. She is very grateful for the team with whom she gets to practice. ReEnvision Counseling has 10 therapists on staff, and each one is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR). Dr. Britt specializes in treating trauma and particularly has a heart for professional helpers. She is known in the area for working with those in high stress jobs and treating a wide variety of mental health conditions. Dr. Britt has been in the field for 22 years, and her own personal story is what led her to open her own practice and to focus on approaching clients with a trauma-informed lens. She has been married for 23 years and has two children, a 16-year-old and 18-year-old.
Dr. Britt double majored in Psychology and Vocational Ministry at Freed-Hardeman University and received her Counseling Masters from the FHU graduate program while teaching Psychology and Theatre at Jackson Christian School. She worked as a clinical therapist for Agape Child and Family Services, Inc. for the next seven years while continuing post-graduate classes and completing her licensure requirements. At that point, her husband became ill with a rare, progressive disease of the central nervous system, and Dr. Britt stepped away from the clinical realm for a while. She went back to teaching, spent a great deal of time in the psychological literature while slowly chipping away at her PhD in Psychology, and focused on personal and family wellness. Dr. Britt’s dissertation was a 350-page experimental research design on the objectification of women in western society, which is another topic about which she feels strongly. She graduated from Capella University in 2016 and opened her own practice, and she quickly saw the need to bring more therapists on board. They have outgrown their physical location every year since that point and are excited to now have a building on Murray Guard, remodeled to include 8 offices, 2 waiting rooms, a play therapy and observation room, conference room, and yoga studio. The practice has also added a downtown location this past year with two more offices and a play therapy room. While all REC therapists are trained in trauma and are adept at treating the variety of struggles that bring people to therapy, certain ones specialize more in various ages or specific issues in which they have interest. Dr. Britt has most recently stretched her own professional growth by providing trainings on trauma and EMDR to various groups, including multiple weeks of in-services for the police and fire departments as well as half-day trainings to City of Jackson first responders on Critical Incident Desensitization protocols. She has also been working with medical providers in the area to help bring more awareness and updated information to these professionals about their mental health needs. One of Dr. Britt’s favorite aspects of being a therapist is the ever-expanding knowledge base in this field, and she places a high priority on keeping herself and her staff in the role of continual learners.
The team at ReEnvision Counseling gathers twice a week for interdisciplinary staffing, training in various techniques, and continual education. Dr. Britt is strongly committed to providing the highest quality care for clients and making the therapeutic experience an empowering one for all involved. This includes an emphasis on therapists being intentional about their own wellness, growth, and relationship quality as well as the obvious emphasis placed on providing research-based, integrative, compassionate care to clients. Dr. Britt feels honored to lead this team and is grateful for any chance to tell her story and to teach or train other providers about advances in the field of neurobiology and psychology and how to care for one’s own mental health. She is passionate about how whole-brain therapies like EMDR have changed the landscape of counseling and are able to offer life-changing results for clients of all types.
