About Jen Hanchey

I’ve loved writing and stories all my life, but my favorite stories have the plot line of life change. I am passionate about helping individuals and couples understand their story, own their story, and choose a better ending. I enjoy working with anxiety, depression, eating disorders, premarital couples, marital strife, infertility and women’s health, trauma, and parenting—particularly fostering, adoption, and resettling children from hard places. Working with clients who want to grow in self-awareness and self-efficacy gives me great joy.


I earned my master’s degree in marriage and family therapy from Richmont Graduate University and specialized in trauma-informed care. My work with clients is underpinned by my Christian faith; I see every client not as a diagnosis but as imago Dei, made in the image of God.


My approach to working with clients is heavily influenced by attachment theory and Emotionally Focused Therapy, a method which emphasizes the human need for connection and secure, loving relationships. I believe we are pre-wired for attachment and the misdirected drive for security in relationship is often at the root of our brokenness.
