Jenny Stulck Leads ‘Seasons’ Programming at SUWS
Jenny Stulck, MS, LCMHC, NCC, returns to lead Seasons’ co-ed programing following a three-month sabbatical. While on leave, Jenny was able to hike around some of the most beautiful, preserved mountains in the world in the Peruvian Andes.
“I am extremely grateful to SUWS and my employers for granting me a three month leave in order to replenish my soul,” said Jenny. “I value the families I work with and the team at SUWS. It is important to me that I show up with energy and passion for what I do. These last few years have been a doozy for many of us, and I believe it was important for me to take a break from my work, model what self-care can look like and step outside of my routine for a time so I could return fully-present to work with the SUWS community.”
Jenny has been working with the Seasons program (students ages 10 – 13) since 2018. She enjoys the versatile nature of working with boys and girls at this age of development and weaves play, ceremony, song, and hard skills into the therapeutic process.
Jenny uses a relational approach with her students. Her goal is to meet students and families where they are at when they arrive in treatment at SUWS. Jenny is currently finding inspiration in the Neuro-Affective Relation Model (NARM) while also incorporating a variety of modalities into her therapeutic approach, including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and choice theory. She continues to focus on developing her skills and approaches around working with the neuro-diverse population.
