So far I have enjoyed speaking with Jennifer. She is very accommodating of my difficult schedule and makes sure I feel that I am supported or have support if I need to access it. I am new to this type of counselling and so I am not 100% sure it is feeling effective for me yet. I look forward to continued work with Jennifer to see if this service is right for me.

Jennifer has been wonderful and very thoughtful in her responses and her encouragement and support is worth every penny. She helps to put things into perspective and reads every statement with ease. I recommend her whole heartedly. I took to her instantaneously and she’s helped me in such a short period of time, including the trial period. Highly recommend her advice and support.

Jenny has an incredible talent for reading between the lines. She asks thoughtful and meaningful questions and shares her insights to help you on your journey. I feel like writing to her is like writing to an old friend - I feel safe, there's no judgement and I truly feel she is an advocate. Thank you, Jenny, it's meant a lot to me!

Jenn is friendly and above all, an independent voice of support and kindness in the chaos of modern family life and relative pressures Jenn helps me to sort 'the woods from the trees'.

Written by O.C. on Aug 01, 2017 after counseling with Jennifer for 2 weeks family

Jennifer has been a wonderful ongoing support through a particularly difficult family relationship. Knowing she's there in times of need has given me much more confidence in my thoughts and actions that I otherwise didn't have.

Written by J.U. on Jun 27, 2017 after counseling with Jennifer for 1 month stress, anxiety, relationship, family, and anger

Jennifer was a great help for me. She is very timely, understanding, and detailed in her responses. This was my first time reaching out for help in any manner, and I had the most positive experience I could have ever imagined. I really felt that Jennifer cared about my well being and wanted to see me improve. It was great to be able to open up to an objective third party about my concerns and would recommend Jennifer to anyone.

Jenn is incredibly supportive and caring. She always writes back quickly and despite time differences and impromptu scheduling, finds time to chat face to face often. This has been a hard journey for me and I am so grateful that she has been there to encourage and help me along the way.

Very patient and encouraging!

Written by B.R on Mar 26, 2017 after counseling with Jennifer for 3 weeks depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

She's very dedicated. When I get busy and lose track of time, she puts forth the effort to stay up to date with me and initiate conversation. She's also a very compassionate individual who really does want to see you get better, not just line her pockets (an experience I had with my first therapist).

Written by L.R on Mar 23, 2017 after counseling with Jennifer for 1 month depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, intimacy-related, eating, and sleeping

I was not sure what I was looking for when I signed up for counseling. I was in an a dark place and I needed someone to help me emerge from there. Jenn helped me confront and deal with some things that I wouldn`t have without being prompted. She has been compassionate, caring and dedicated. Its not easy, nor a quick fix but she listens and responds in kind. She is compassionate and always checks in on me. Thank you.
