My dark times would've stretched on much longer had I been without your patient ear and your objective advice, Jenny. It's been so wonderful to have you part of my life. I can't thank you enough.

Written by K.A. on May 20, 2018 after counseling with Jennifer for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship, and grief

Many thanks to Jennifer for helping me to work through multiple crisis issues at once because that’s what life had laid out in front of me. Her emails were timely and focused on me finding my voice and finding my peace. The last 6 months of my life have been hell however this past month with Jennifer’s assistance has seen the packing up of some serious grief and abandonment concerns. I have appreciated her genuine care, concern and sound counsel.

She's a wonderful therapist. She actually listens to what your problems are, rather than give cliché advice like other therapist I've dealt with. She rocks!

I think she's amazing. She's helped me a lot, especially brought my spirits up from a place I never want to be again in. I started taking care of myself more. I'm still recovering, it's a work in progress, but it has definitely helped.

Jen has been hugely supportive in my journey. She is non judgemental and through a natural style exchange we are beginning to peel things back. She calms me and helps me feel I am not alone. Thanks Jen! For others out there, I would highly recommend Jen in this capacity.

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.

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 on issues concerning 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.
