About Me

Hello and welcome to Betterhelp! My name is Jennifer. I have both Master’s and Education Specialist degrees in Counseling, with a specialization in Couples and Family. I also recently graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing and am a practicing Registered Nurse. (I have an addiction to learning, apparently.) I’ve worked as a licensed therapist in North Carolina for 13 years. I work frequently with difficult relationship dynamics whether in families or among romantic partners. I do quite a bit of work in trauma recovery, anxiety and stress reduction, resiliency building, and identity development. Mine is a holistic, positive, supportive approach that promotes self-awareness and the interruption of unhelpful patterns of thoughts and behaviors that lead to being "stuck". I teach mindfulness, yogic interventions and encourage gratitude and curiosity in my clients!

I'm a good fit for those who are struggling to understand themselves or their relationships as well as those who continue to meet obstacles in creating the kind of lives and relationships they'd like. Presenting concerns may include PTSD/trauma symptoms, anxiety, depression, intense anger, difficulty coping or transitioning, challenges with relationships, and poor body image (with or without eating concerns).

In my spare time I enjoy hiking, beekeeping and chasing my two sons! I hope we are a good fit and look forward to connecting with you.

Jennifer has helped me a lot as support to get me through some difficult self discoveries and help me organize my thoughts. When I'm struggling she has useful tips and tools to help me get back on track. She's been a huge help to me. I'm a person who comes and goes from therapy as needed, but each time I return it's to Jennifer.

Jennifer and I have worked together for quite some time now and the transformation I’ve had as an individual is so refreshing. She has offered a variety of different helpful avenues and been a cheerleader and guider thru some turbulent times. In the past I would go to therapy then drop off when it got tough...Jennifer saw me thru this and helped me over this obstacle. I’m forever thankful.

Therapy with Jennifer feels like talking to an old friend. I look forward to it all week. She holds the space for me to explore my own thoughts and feelings, and notices patterns that I would never have figured out on my own. She is always supportive, kind, and wise. Jennifer is just one of those people who was born to be a therapist.

Jennifer is kind and empathetic. I always feel heard and she helps relay what I have said to her in a new way so that I can see it in a different perspective.

Jennifer is wonderful and has helped me in so many ways in the short amount of time that we've been working together. She's very patient,
relatable, and knowledgeable. I've never felt judged at any point in time. I'm grateful to have come across an awesome therapist like her.

Best therapist I’ve ever been to. Literally changed my whole life since I’ve started seeing her - only for the better! I talk to my friends about her all the time and think she’s amazing :)

Jennifer was enormously helpful to me during a really challenging time in my life. She provides useful and realistic advice, and is really attentive to broader patterns of behavior. Highly recommend!

Written by W.I. on Jan 20, 2021 after therapy with Jennifer for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Jennifer is awesome! I came to counseling with some hope of finding myself a way out of getting "un-stuck" in my life because of a personal trauma. It will take time and practice but Jennifer guided me and showed me a few practice of being in present which helps a lot. I feel like I am in much better position now compares to when I started this because of her. Definitely would recommend to talk with her to see whether she can help.

When I look back to the day I started my first session with Jennifer, I can see I came long way. That was impossible without her.
My stress, depression are significantly lower. And it is noticeable according to my family. I also lost almost 25lbs which was amazing.
I wrote some of her advices in sticky notes and look at them everyday.

In my short time with Jennifer, I already feel a huge amount of comfortability with her and have total confidence in her. She gave me tools right away that helped immensely. I have already recommended BetterHelp to several other people because I have had such a positive experience with Jennifer and I look forward to continuing therapy with her.

Jennifer Brigman has been an excellent counsellor for me. She helped immediately when I was in a crisis situation and since then I have opened up about all kinds of issues with her. I have a complex mental health situation and she has been very understanding and supportive. She is always there when I need her input and she has given me great strategies to deal with my mental health problems. Highly recommended!

Jennifer was of great help to me. She understood where I was coming from, worked great with helping me see perspectives and was sensitive, understanding and knowledgeable about a condition I have which complicated things. She has helped me change the way I think, process and go about many scenarios and was irreplaceable in my overall development. I would seek her consul and advice without hesitation. Thank you so much Jennifer.

Written by T.R. on Sep 30, 2018 after therapy with Jennifer for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

Well I was really sceptic about the viability of counselling and I was really scared of going into someone’s chamber and talking face to face. Even over video call or something. But how well she handled the entire ordeal kinda really made me realise how useful therapy is. She is a really kind lady and truly listens to all your problems, sometimes even beyond the intended time. She is really amazing.

Written by J.E. on Aug 21, 2018 after therapy with Jennifer for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety

Jennifer is a great listener, offers good insight, and responds with thoughts and ideas specific to your situation. She’s also personable and easy to talk to. I look forward to continuing to work with her.

The best way to put Jennifer's practice would be a friend with the professional knowledge in the field.

Written by A.Y. on Jul 11, 2018 after therapy with Jennifer for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, and eating

Jennifer is amazing. After I write a long bombarded message full of chaos and being all over the place, Jennifer, with a few simple words and sentences diffuses chaotic situations to peace, clarity and serenity. Within a few lines, my perspective of the situation has been completely transformed. She always knows how to take the pressure off and make everything ok again. She is so adaptable to anything you say to her from giving amazing techniques, reading material, or simply validating your feelings or helping to understand yours and others feelings. And most of all she makes counseling fun! I’ve never been able to say that before!

Written by A.N. on Jul 10, 2018 after therapy with Jennifer for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, eating, sleeping, self esteem, and anger

From the past few days of our conversations, chatting with her makes me feel at ease. It really is precious to me that someone actively listens and tries to understand to what I have to say and to how I really feel. No one really does except her. My deepest regards.

Work with me!
