I Believe...

There is HOPE 
In Freedom 
In Spirituality 
With health comes HOPE 
Healing happens together 
In CHOICES and empowerment 
Everyone is recovering from some “thing” 
Together we can find a “plan” that can work for you 
In focusing on what is strong, not only what is wrong 
About Jennifer A. Manning

I am passionate about your situation! I want to help you pursue HOPE for your circumstance! Despite sadness, fear, confusion, or frustration, TOGETHER we will work with your strengths. I have been practicing in Thief River Falls and Northern Minnesota for 10 years and love my work. I offer individual, couples and family counseling for adults, children, and adolescents who would like assistance in understanding and improving issues of co-dependency, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, self-image, relationship issues, spiritual problems, life transitions, school and work adjustment, parenting concerns, anger issues, and problem gambling.

I also provide clinical supervision services for individuals who are required to have clinical supervision for clinical licensing in the state of Minnesota. I provide specific topic workshops and presentations with many different topics such as Burnout, Stress Management, Anxiety, Communication, Family Life, Problem Gambling, and many more!



My mission is to provide you with the highest quality service in order to help you achieve your goals in therapy and in life. I will work in a way that respects your dignity, emphasizes your strengths and potential, and challenges you to take your life to the next level. I believe that the most productive therapy environment is one of mutual trust, respect, and collaboration. I will base my treatment on proven models of human behavior and established methods.
