Provides Individual and Group Therapy to Men Who’ve Committed Sexual Offenses

2012, Master of Arts, Marriage & Family Therapy, Argosy University, Twin Cities

Jennifer Rhein is a senior clinician for the State of Minnesota’s Department of Human Services. She works in the Minnesota Sex Offender Program in St. Peter, providing individual and group therapy to men who have committed sexual offenses. Jennifer also teaches psychoeducation classes and works with a multidisciplinary team to coordinate treatment. “Because of the work I do, I have also been appointed to special tasks within my job. This includes a committee that is developing an electronic communication log. I also spend time as a trainer for current and fellow employees,” she says.

Jennifer earned an undergraduate degree in Psychology at the College of St. Benedict/St. John's University in 2009 and began pursuing a Master of Arts in School Psychology at Argosy University, Dallas. But after one semester, she realized that her true passion was Marriage & Family Therapy. She transferred to Argosy University, Twin Cities to earn a degree in that field. She completed a Master of Arts in Marriage & Family Therapy in 2012. Today, she’s passed both the national and state exams to become a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.

The path to her career wasn’t always easy and Jennifer recommends that current students understand that while things may get difficult, perseverance pays off. “I had to balance school and work at the same time. I overcame this by keeping my nose to the grindstone, practicing self-care, and surrounding myself with people who would support me.”
