Hello! I’m Jennifer Madere with Intuitus Group Independent Professionals, and I’m glad you have decided to learn more about how I may be helpful to you or someone close to you. I offer individual counseling for children ages 9 and up, adolescents, and adults.
Whether you have “hit a wall” in life and need help moving onward, want to be free of past disturbing life experiences, or are seeking to have a healthier lifestyle or relationship in the future, counseling can help in your journey. Areas in which I am most experienced include:
EMDR therapy is an effective, evidence-based method for helping our brain digest or move past obstacles interfering with our functioning, relationships, or future goals. For example, if you experienced a stressful or disturbing event in the past, addressing that issue with EMDR will help your brain to digest the memory and associated material. Once the past material is digested/desensitized, clients find it much easier to stay fully in the present, and report they are free from feelings or beliefs about themselves previously associated with the past event(s). For more information, visit this page.
In addition to the areas listed above, I have specialized training to utilize EMDR therapy to treat migraine headaches, complex trauma, attachment trauma, and dissociative disorders.

I offer private counseling to clients on a weekly, bi-weekly, or intensive basis. In general, therapy is most effective and goals are met most quickly when we meet regularly. Appointments are scheduled Monday-Thursday.
Intensive therapy (four 60 or 90 minute sessions spaced throughout one day) is often helpful to address recent traumatic events, resolve an identified block in therapy, and when schedule logistics do not allow for weekly appointments. An intake session is necessary to determine suitability for intensive therapy. Because I am licensed to practice psychotherapy in the state of Texas, all ongoing clients must be residents of Texas. Clients who are residents of other states may travel to my office for in-person intensive sessions.
Payment is due for each session at the time services are rendered; I accept cash, check, and credit cards. My fees are $150 for the first session (55-60 minutes), and subsequent sessions are $120 for 40-45 minutes, $150 for 55-60 minutes, and $225 for 90 minutes.
I do not accept or bill insurance. If you wish to submit receipts to insurance for reimbursement according to your benefits, I will provide the appropriate documentation to allow you to do so.
Prospective clients may register in my secure portal to schedule a phone call to discuss your needs in therapy. This portal will also allow you to send secure messages to me directly – please do not send extensive personal information via email.
*Please note: Only my portal provides a secure method of communication. If you chose to send me an email, by clicking the email link provided on this page or to leave me a voice mail, you acknowledge and accept that I cannot guarantee the confidentiality of any information you provide.
I enjoy being part of my fellow professionals’ journeys and the cooperative learning process which takes place in consultation and supervision.
