Get to know Jody

Jody Unsen is our Mandt Training Specialist and brings decades of experience in the human services field. She was an employee of Four Oaks for 30 years, and exceled in many programs and positions there.

Mental Health Matters

Jody is well aware of the importance of acknowledging mental health, both in and outside of the workplace. In her personal life, she has learned to navigate relationships involving mental illness in a healthy and positive way. Nobody chooses to struggle with mental health, and Jody knows that the more people who can approach others with empathy and compassion, the better our communities will be.

Another important piece of mental health is having the appropriate tools to succeed. Jody seeks to provide a safe and engaging learning environment for others, whether it is through Mandt training or other areas.

Love and Respect

It is important to Jody to maintain love and respect for others. This includes her family, personal network, colleagues, and students. Love and respect is foundational in mental health and human services, and without it we all suffer.

Outside of work, Jody enjoys traveling, playing and watching sports, and spending time with her family.

Get direction for your life!

Most of our poor decisions and behaviors that we wish we could re-do are driven by our feelings. In most cases we are probably reacting from an emotion and not even really thinking!

ODD is one of the most common behavioral disorders among kids. Unfortunately, people exhibiting these behaviors are sometimes mislabeled as "naughty" or "bad," which can be damaging.

Regulate your emotions and then engage in co-regulation with your teen from a place of curiosity and compassion.
