Hello! I’m Jennifer
Taking the leap in beginning therapy can be a difficult and intimidating step and finding the right provider can be daunting; but I believe therapy is one of the greatest forms of self-care particularly in times when we lose clarity in our life and need assistance. Change is inevitable and can be scary but we can progress and grow most when we feel consistently safe and supported. As your therapist I will walk alongside you as my client to meet you where you are at mentally and emotionally. I will create a safe space to listen, to validate and to support you so together we find what is needed for the next chapter in your, your child’s, or your family’s life. I am eager to help you and yours navigate the dilemmas you may be facing.
I have worked closely with adolescents as a high school psychology teacher for over a decade which has given me a passion for working with this population. I have also received training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), as well as completing additional training in trauma informed practices, play therapy, and course work in addictions counseling. I work from a systemic perspective which seeks to help me understand my client through the lens of their connections and interactions with others. When working with my clients I pull from multiple therapeutic theories and techniques to meet clients’ needs to support them in a safe, non-judgmental setting.
You are not alone
You, your child, or your family may be dealing with frequent stress, sadness, anxieties, feelings of defeat, or lack of communication; or your child or teen may be struggling with school, defiance, or mood swings and you may be struggling to help your child, or yourself, cope. Whatever the situation I am here to help. Trying to deal with these societal and life pressures can be difficult and emotionally, mentally, and physically exhausting, especially for kids and teens. It is important to remember that it is okay to ask for help and support for yourself, child, or family. You are not alone in this.
