Welcome Back Jenn!
Staff Spotlight: Jennifer Edwards MA, LPCC (#2700), R-DMT- Clinical Director
Your role at Alsana at Monarch Cove:
I am the Clinical director at Monarch Cove. It is my role to support and guide our Monarch Cove team in deepening the therapeutic work of each of our clients.
I am returning to Monarch Cove inspired and rejuvenated. I have missed the team collaborative approach that truly is unique to Alsana. I really thrive when surrounded by the talented and dedicated staff that are inevitably attracted to Alsana, and I have found the team at Monarch Cove to be no exception!
The thing you love most about working with people affected by eating disorders:

Spending time with people and animals that I love, being with nature, traveling, dancing, witnessing others in their joy
Your favorite quote:
Oh gosh… I am not much of a quote person.
“Wherever you go, there you are.”

My fiancé, sunshine, pizza, my friends, the ability to move my body, laughter.
Last song you listened to:
I typically listen to podcasts, not music, so the last podcast I listened to was “Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me.” And they mentioned the Monterey Bay Aquarium!!
