Wellness Coordinator/Administrative Coordinator
Jen Principato is a Wellness Coordinator/Administrative Coordinator at CAMP SoBe Well and works at our partner location Just Believe Detox in Port St. Lucie.
As the Wellness Coordinator/Administrative Coordinator, Jen is an integral part of the client intake and administrative process. She also teaches clients how to cope with triggers and impulses to use, as well as how to lower stress levels, improve symptoms, and how to live an overall more balanced lifestyle. Jen does this by guiding clients through a series of modalities, including breath awareness and breathing techniques, stretching, yoga, and other types of therapeutic exercises.
Additionally, Jen educates clients about CAMP SoBe Well’s services and teaches them how to draw on their senses in order to pull themselves into the present, aiding in their ability to better cope with stress, notice their options, and to live life one day at a time.
Prior to joining CAMP SoBe Well, Jen worked for a nonprofit that provides support services to survivors of sexual trauma. She also worked as a licensed massage therapist and yoga instructor. Jen earned an Associate of Science inBehavioral and Social Sciences and Human Services from Indian River State College.
“My passion is to continue to teach new families, as well as those in recovery, how to prevent and break cycles of generational dysfunction. I want to help others to see their own value. I want my clients to know that there is value in treating themselves well; not only through teaching them how to feel better by lessening symptoms like depression, PTSD/triggers, impulses to use, anxiety, high blood pressure, and insomnia, but also so they can pass these good practices to future generations,” Jen says.
In her spare time, Jen enjoys gardening, yoga, hiking, kayaking/canoeing, drumming, writing children’s books, and painting.
