About me

As a therapist with 20 years experience I am versed in multiple modalities of working with people. I have dual licensure in the areas of mental health and substance use. I also have specialized training to work with gambling disorders. I believe in the medical model of disease and work with clients to reduce stigma attached to these diagnosis. Believing the the medical model is only part of my practice though. Healing is holistic and there are many parts to getting well. I am a trained EMDR therapist and enjoy using this modality. EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, it is a different way of working with people than traditional talk therapy. I am trained in several different protocols for EMDR including trauma as well as addiction. I like people and I want to help end suffering in people's lives. It would be a honored to walk with you on this journey.

Written on Feb 15, 2024 after therapy with Jennifer for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, and anger management

Jennifer is an excellent, understanding therapist. She talks to me about my online life, which includes many people I've met in computer games, and she works very hard on understanding the situation I'm in as I tell her about it. I spend a lot of time on my own, and she helps practice social skills, which I appreciate. Thumbs up for Jen!
