Jennie Karnish

Jennie Karnish

Complex Family Systems Program Manager

Jennie is authentic, direct, and compassionate. She isn’t afraid to call people out on their sh!% and has a kind heart. Jennie is down to earth with a good since of humor. Empowering others to believe in their self-worth is one of Jennie’s biggest passions. She’s real and transparent, what you see is what you get. Jennie loves working with littles, adolescents, and adults. The awkward middle school age to young adulthood is her jam. 

Jennie tackles complex cases head on. She is Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Certified and is a Certified Juvenile Sexual Offending Counselor. She received her BA in Criminal Justice and MS in Clinical Counseling. In 2020, Jennie came to Minnesota from rural Iowa where she provided community mental health services since 2013. She has a wealth of experience working with court ordered/involved cases. 

Outside of work, Jennie is a mom of three littles, so she doesn’t really know what hobbies are… but she does enjoy cooking/baking, listening to True Crime, spending time with family, and thrifting.
