My why is YOU.

The teen years can be very challenging, for teens and for their parents. I spent my younger years working with teens in outdoor settings and committed to improving the lives of teens and their families in collaborative and impactful ways. Twenty years ago, I became a therapist as a means to educate and advocate for this population. I truly enjoy being with my clients and their families and am passionate about mental health and social justice issues. My hope is that through my work, clients and their families gain self-knowledge and life is a less challenging.

My mission is to make the mental health experience accessible, approachable, and easy to understand by educating my clients and the community. I provide high quality therapeutic services and share real, tangible ways to improve your mental health to live a fulfilling life.


About Jenny Hoffman

Jenny enjoys living in the Saint Louis area with her husband, two children, and her two golden-doodles, Crosby and Cash. She loves to be outdoors and enjoys a great hiking trail as long as it isn’t raining.

She also loves a long day in a quiet art museum. She is a voracious reader and is a serial book-club participator. Jenny will read anything that is recommended, and her favorite books include “The Nightingale”, “Everything is Illuminated” and the Harry Potter series. Jenny is a hockey fan with ties to all of the Saint Louis sports teams. A favorite night out is a Blues game with friends and family and a hot pretzel and cheese. After a long day, she enjoys late night tv or a Netflix binge.

Jenny teaches at several universities, including Washington University and Maryville University, which allows her to stay up to date on current practices, policies, and issues to bring to her clients. Jenny engages in peer consultation, trainings, and educates herself on topics including: mental health, human rights, and anti-racism.

She began her post Masters career working with teen boys in a group home setting and has dedicated her career to working with young people since. Jenny opened her private practice in 2009 to meet the mental health needs of teens and their families. Her goal was to serve a community often overlooked and underserved.

Jenny Hoffman attended Northwestern University and received a BS in Social Policy and received her MA in Social Service Administration from The University of Chicago. This education provides a crucial foundation to Jenny’s understanding of the importance of advocacy and quality services for her clients.
