I have been an individual and family therapist in Missouri for twelve years. In my practice, I have served those coping with anxiety, stress, depression, substance abuse, parenting challenges, and a plethora of other issues. I have extensive experience working with victims of childhood abuse and trauma.
I bring a strength based perspective to all situations. I believe that everyone has strengths they can draw upon to work through life's challenges and hardships. My therapeutic approach is a mixture of cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and integrative therapies. Everyone is unique and therapy sessions must be individualized as well.
Reaching out for help is admirable and no easy task. I'm glad you have taken that first step and I look forward to talking with you.

Jennifer has been completely amazing. I have been so helped by her. She is very wise but also very sweet. She has stood by me in every situation and I feel thoroughly supported.
Jennifer has helped me massively. She listens amazingly and really helps you understand the problems your having without blaming you for them. She’s excellent as what she does and a brilliant therapist.
Jennifer is a great counselor.
Jennifer is outstanding. She provides great resources, and also is able to read into the problem and helping you understand what could be going on. She has helped me develop confidence and self worth, I’m feeling more solidified in my future decision thanks to her!
Jennifer really listens to what I'm saying and always finds a way to comfort me and help me solve my problems.
I once told Jennifer she was a genius. Of course, being a modest and kind person, she denied this, but it is absolutely true. The way she is able to listen, understand, empathise with and support someone thousands of miles and several time zones away is truly amazing. I am a work in progress and Jennifer is a huge help.
Absolutely phenomenal. Caring, empathetic, very easy to talk to. Definitely recommend!
Jennifer is amazing. She really listens and cares about my problems. I've been to counsellors in the past who didn't really understand my root problems, but she actively helps and offers solutions that I can apply right away. She has helped me a lot with my healing and I highly recommend booking a session with her.
Jennifer is an empathetic, warm and present counsellor. I am very happy with the therapeutic alliance and collaboration we have with each other and believe in her capabilities to guide me through my concerns.
Thank you Jennifer! I appreciate the clarity you have helped me achieve.
Jennifer is so helpful and supportive. She’s been very accommodating of my schedule, even from a distant time zone, and is always responsive. It’s been great working with her to find commitments and strategies that work for me, especially during this very transitional time.
Jennifer is a very empathetic person!
I love Jen!! She has really helped me on my journey and continues to be invaluable.
Jennifer has been more than a counselor from day one! She’s a friend that I know I can call on day or night! She’s always there and ready to listen and is always armed with a variety of ways to handle each crisis. She is always calm and kind and supportive! I don’t know where I would be had I not met her when I did.
Jennifer is very kind and actively listens to the troubles that one is experiencing.
Jennifer is a great listener, I feel she takes time to reflect on my messages and in our chats. She replies with insightful comments and good questions. I enjoyed her assistant in helping me walk through a difficult situation.
Jennifer has been a wonderful support for me this year. She has been a kind and supportive counsellor and very accommodating to me when I need to change session times. She has really helped me with giving new perspective on old problems. I would recommend her to everyone. Thank you so much Jennifer for your support!
Jennifer has been the most amazing therapist! She is so clear and direct which has enabled me to make the right choices and decisions for myself. She has provided me a lot of good worksheets and tips on ways to overcome my situation and has been very friendly and kind through out my time with her.
She has also been very good at unpacking what I am communicating with her and gives really good and clear advice and showed strong understanding of what I was communicating, even while I was at really low points in myself. I would definitely recommend. I would use her again if I needed to in a heartbeat.
Jennifer's extremely nice and funny, and listens to my problems then suggests a different way of looking at it which is often very eye opening. This is my first time going for therapy so I was nervous at first, but i'm definitely not disappointed.
Jennifer is a great counselor, but, more importantly, she is a really good person. I trust that she is in my corner, and fighting for my success.
Jennifer is a very kind and happy person! She always knows how to make me see my situation in a more reasonable way! She gives practical advice on how to meet my individual goals. She’s lovely to chat with and takes the time to get to know you and your concerns! :)

Jen has been an amazing counseling experience. She is genuinely caring and I have found her very easy to open up to and feel comfortable with. Gives great feedback and responds quickly.
I really appreciate the insight that Jennifer gives during our sessions, as well as sharing the tools/worksheets that help me to work at my own speed. Jennifer is a good listener and I look forward to our weekly sessions.
When I signed up for BetterHelp and first 'met' Jennifer, I was in a very bad state. She has shown me numerous ways to regain my confidence and to become a much happier more mentally balanced person.
Jennifer has made me feel very comfortable, both in sending messages and talking on video. She's helping me work on strategies I can transfer into my life to deal with previous trauma and anxiety. Highly recommended :-)
Jennifer was so easy to open up to. She is caring, understanding and funny. She made it easy to feel comfortable to talk to her. I look forward to continuing with her and am confident that she will be able to help me be more confident in myself and assertive with others. She is a good person to work with!
