Primary Therapist for Seasons (students ages 10-14)

When Jenny Stulck was 15, she wrote in her journal that she hoped to one day “work in the woods with at-risk teens.” Jenny grew up hiking the trails around New England with her parents. She found the wilderness to be a sanctuary where she and her parents could slow down, listen and learn from each other in ways that were easier than when they were in the “indoor world.”

In 2005, Jenny began working as a field guide for a wilderness therapy program. She spent many years working in the woods with teens and traveling the world in her time off. Since 2013, she holds a Master’s of Science in Mental Health Clinical Counseling and is a Licensed Professional Counselor. Jenny has worked a variety of community and private mental health counseling positions over the years including working with an intensive in-home team, a sexual abuse crisis center, mobile crisis management, and in wilderness therapy. Jenny is thrilled to be a part of SUWS and the team of skilled therapists here. She has shared the pleasure of having worked in the woods for years with many of her co-workers over the past decade. When she is not running therapy groups in the woods with adolescents, Jenny enjoys spending time with friends and family.
