Hello, I’m Jennifer Fay.
Let’s be honest; life can be overwhelming considering all that is demanded by work, school, family, relationships, and often ourselves! I think the privilege of working alongside my clients is both significant and humbling. It is my hope that as I join them in their journey toward discovering peace and contentment, I can offer support by helping them learn skills that work and empowering them to take action toward change.
Some common concerns that I can help to address include the following:
My qualifications include a License in Professional Counseling and a Master of Science from Millersville University in Clinical Psychology. I received my Bachelor’s degree from Millersville University in Psychology and Fine Arts. I also have specialized training in Trauma-focused therapies (including TEAM CBT and Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).
When I’m not working, I am likely traveling or exploring nature with my family, cooking or tracking down some delicious food, or cozied by the fire watching a movie. I find happiness in the slow, simple moments!
I wholeheartedly believe we all deserve moments of joy and a sense of peace and to acknowledge the power we have to get the things we want! Let’s get to work!

Whether you are suffering from panic attacks, obsessive – compulsive disorder, or generalized anxiety we have therapists who use evidenced-based treatments, such as cognitive-bahavioral therapy, to help you.
Many individuals feel like they are at war with their bodies. Whether it’s feeling shame, guilt, or giving ourselves critical comments about our bodies, we can be our own worst enemy. Our therapists can help you feel at peace with your body and learn to be kind to yourself.
Depression and anxiety are extremely common, but often under-diagnosed by medical providers during pregnancy and postpartum. Our providers have specialized training to help women with anxiety and depression in this specific period in their lives.
Depression, one of the most common mental health disorders, is very treatable. Our therapists are specially trained to help individuals with depression get back to feeling like themselves again.
Move Forward Counseling is an inclusive practice where we want the LGBTQIA+ community to feel welcome and supported. Whether you are unsure how to embrace your identity, are having relationship issues, or need extra support from a non-judgmental person, we have therapists who can help.
Life transitions encompass many things, including starting or ending a romantic relationship, changes with work or school or making any big life change, such as a move. Often we underestimate how these changes will affect us emotionally until we find ourselves struggling with the ups and downs of the life transition.
While we don’t provide couples counseling at Move Forward, many individuals seek counseling to discuss how they can have healthier relationships. Our therapists can help you learn new ways of communicating, setting boundaries, and other ways to have more positive relationships with others.
Trauma symptoms and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can be debilitating for many who experience it. Recovery from trauma is possible and we have therapists who can help.
Moving into adulthood brings its own set of challenges. You may feel pressure to have a “career” or find your life partner. You may be unsure of making these big life decisions and may feel lost because you no longer have school or other adults in your life telling you what you should choose.
The period of adolescence can be exciting, but also challenging for many teens. Difficulties with friends, school, anxiety, depression, cutting, and substance abuse are all common issues for this group. Due to a lack of life experience, teens may not know how to manage these problems which is why therapy can be especially helpful.
