Hi, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Missouri. I have worked in the mental health field since 2003. My belief is that I act as a guide to enable my clients to bring about the change and healing they wish to see in their lives. I have experience with those managing chronic illness including chronic pain and other chronic illnesses, depression, anxiety, and those with history of trauma as well those struggling with grief. I believe that you are the expert on your life and I am a helping hand to help you live a happier, more fulfilled life.
My therapy is warm and without stigma or judgment. My goal is to always meet my clients where they are and developing treatment goals that reflect their priorities.
My therapy is very eclectic including a combination of person centered, cognitive behavioral therapy, and solution focused therapy.
I am not accepting children/adolescents as clients at this time.
Your best life is waiting for you! I look forward to working with you.

Jennifer listens very well and provides not just advice but compassion for any situation that I am going through. I appreciate our time together and feel heard during every session. I feel that I have learned coping skills to apply in future situations of anxiety and stress.

She's wonderful, straight to the point and is always understanding. Whether I'm venting or seeing advice she is very good at navigating the conversation. She makes the appointments feel safe and productive. Would highly recommend her.

Jennifer has been great to work with! I had never tried therapy before, and I'm so glad that I was paired with Jennifer. I felt heard, she helped me work through several issues, was able to recommend several actionable items to help me every day, and how to keep becoming the person I want to be. I highly recommend her.

I've been in and out of therapy for years and have I always had a hard time connecting with a therapist I've had until it came to Jennifer. And just a few weeks that I spent with her I have made an amazing step forward in my journey of healing and I tribute that to her. Thank you Jennifer and believe me I'm trying to get back to you.
