Hello and welcome to Betterhelp! My name is Jennifer. I have both Master’s and Education Specialist degrees with a concentration in Couples and Family counseling. I also recently graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing and am a practicing RN in mental health. (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.

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!
Jennifer has always been extremely supportive while still telling me what I need to hear to grow into the person I want to be and to get over the emotional traumas and obstacles in my life. She is truly honest, understanding, caring, and she knows exactly how to put things into perspective. She always leaves the end of a session with a game plan to apply the things we talk about to the real world. So thank you Jennifer! And I would totally recommend her to anyone out there.
She helps me so much more than I ever thought it was possible. Wow. I’m recommending her to everyone already.
After years of running away from counselors, I finally found one who tailored my growth in reachable steps. Jennifer allows me to talk, and discover while supporting my growth journey. I’ve grown more in my counseling journey this past year than I have in the past 10. Jennifer lets me know it’s okay, and pushes me to reach goals I want for myself.
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.
