About me

I am a Clinical Mental Health Counselor with over 10 years of experience. I have experience working with drug and alcohol addictions, law enforcement and first responder issues, traumatic experiences, depression, anxiety, personality disorders, serious mental illnesses, domestic violence, suicidal ideation, crisis counseling, compassion fatigue, and physical, sexual, emotional, and spiritual abuse.
I have a compassionate treatment approach. I actively listen to your life experience with a respectful and non-judgmental approach. I encourage positive affirmations, active self care, helpful thinking, healthy habits, healing traumatic and negative emotional experiences to create positive growth.
I will listen to your story, ask what you hope to gain from our experience, provide insight, and appropriately challenge unhelpful thinking styles and behaviors to create a path down the desired direction.
Taking the first step can be the hardest, but it is necessary to move.
I look forward to working with you.

I absolutely adore Jennifer. She is a very respectful and understand person who prioritizes my goals and needs during our sessions. She lets me know when I may be pushing myself too much or not enough and gently guides me where I need to go.

Jen is fantastic. Being in Utah i was worried about being judged for my lack of religious practice. Jen has been very supportive and i have never felt judged. She offers a very relaxed environment and can be informal while still being professional. She has helped me with mu communication, anger and loss. my only regret is not signing up and meeting her earlier!
