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.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Jennifer Brigman. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
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!
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.
She is very knowledgeable
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.
A truly supportive insightful individual who helps me deal and understand and live with ny truma. She always has a kind word and a positive attitude to make me feel like I can handle all the mess that I have been through.
I real please to have her as my therapist
Haven’t felt this great in a long time.
She is awesome, quickly understood me, she was capable to get right away into things, and she didn't judge me which made me feel comfortable and helped me to open up.
Such a great and to the point therapist!
She helps me so much more than I ever thought it was possible. Wow. I’m recommending her to everyone already.
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 is wonderful. She is a supporting and understanding therapist who also pushes me to try to be the person I want to be. She is very thoughtful and insightful in her suggestions. I would recommend her to any of my friends and family looking for a therapist. I look forward to our talks all week!
Fantastic listener and finder of solutions. Jennifer found various ways to help me in different areas of my life. I felt her expertise was wide and always appropriate for what I needed.
Jennifer has listened, analyzed and understood perfectly my state of mind and troubles and has been giving me very helpful advice. She is a very kind and strong counselor.
Jennifer has calmly and positively helped me to approach situations differently by changing the direction of my thought processes. She has been very responsive and gives well considered and balances suggestions. She's taught me some brilliant techniques that I will use for years to come.
Jennifer has been a delight. She has helped me grow confident in my self; I always felt accepted and she was very reassuring that I'm on the right path. She shared perspective on my family situations that helped me understand and accept my past and I feel I've healed a lot in this time. I would 10/10 recommend her!
Jennifer has been a lovely and knowledgeable person to lean on.
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.
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.
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.
Jennifer was very helpful and gave me good techniques to get through hard stuff. Awesome with her analogies. Good person who thoroughly wants to help.
The best way to put Jennifer's practice would be a friend with the professional knowledge in the field.
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!
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.
