Dr. Jennifer Fast

(PsyD)

About Me

I believe psychotherapy should be a transformational experience. We often get stuck in patterns of relating and being that, at one time, were adaptive and protective, but no longer help us to be our best selves. Psychotherapy helps to understand those patterns, develop strategies to disrupt them, and create new ways of being and relating that get us closer to our personal and professional goals. I strive to create an environment that is warm, nonjudgmental, collaborative, culturally sensitive, and challenging enough to explore and make necessary changes in areas of your life that we identify together as being important to address. I am an integrative therapist and draw from humanistic, cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, and interpersonal modalities to help clients achieve symptom relief and lasting change.

Reviews

Written by K.A. on Oct 26, 2018 after counseling with Jennifer for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, and career difficulties

Dr. Fast identified my anxiety as my core issue that other counselors missed. It has been life-changing.
