    Speaker: Jen Rowland, Leadership Training and Consulting

    Jen Rowland is a Licensed Professional Counselor, National Certified Counselor, Certified Life Coach and Certified Behavioral Consultant. She has been in practice since 2003.  In 2009, Jen opened her own successful private practice.  During the last 18 years, she has taught numerous classes in relieving anxiety, depression, improving relationships, successfully parenting, and faith-based studies. She has also supervised and mentored many other counselors to help them obtain their licensure and open their own private practices.

    Before entering counseling, Jen taught elementary school in the Clark County School District in Las Vegas, Nevada. This is where she realized that before one can really thrive as a student in school or in life, he/she needs to be able to manage what life throws at them.  Thus, her career shifted to counseling; to offer people tools and support to thrive in the most challenging of life situations.

    Jen is passionate about helping people find freedom from being fenced in from life’s pressures, the feelings of being defeated, negative thinking patterns, poor habits, broken relationships, work stressors, and a Covid pandemic.

    During this last two years, Jen has been in the trenches helping many navigate the challenges that pandemic had placed on them personally and professionally. Now she is using her extensive training and experience to empower businesses and their teams to overcome the residual impacts of the pandemic.

    Jen’s recovery strategy focuses on building a self and other’s-awareness, effective communication strategies, stress management tools, and resilience training. These foundational principles strengthen business owners, HR directors and managers to rebuild their teams.  Ultimately, Jen works with forward thinking companies who are willing to invest in the resiliency of their teams, and therefore see the dividends of increasing their bottom line.
