Below is a video that will provide you with a chance to hear more about the CARE program from your college CARE counselor.

Jeni Wade (pronouns: she/her) is a Clinical Social Worker in the Counselors in Academic Residence (CARE) Program, where she provides mental health services to students in the Cockrell School of Engineering (CSE). She works with individuals, facilitates group therapy and meets with CSE students needing crisis support. In addition to her clinical work, Jeni provides workshops and outreach to CSE students as well as consultation and training to CSE staff and faculty to promote student well-being. Jeni’s clinical interests include helping students navigate life transitions and relationship changes, family concerns, healing from loss and trauma, coping with anxiety and depression, and cultivating resilience. She is a culturally-responsive therapist who knows that students’ identities and their social context are central to understanding the stressors they face and their sources of strength. Jeni’s therapeutic approach is rooted in the use of mindfulness and emotion regulation to strengthen clients’ relationships with themselves and others.
