Jennifer has been a God's send. I've been struggling with my marriage and infidelity issues which led to other challenges. Jennifer is helping me break down barriers and exploring more of what's going on. I feel like she hears me challenges me and gives me tools to help me be able to get through anything. I thank her and biggest think her encouragement lets me know I AM NOT ALONE!

I have seen Jennifer just a couple of times so far, but she has helped me understand a lot about why I do things certain ways, or respond in certain ways. She has helped me think through so much in such a short time already. I’ve seen a few other counselors in the past, but Jennifer has already helped me more than the previous counselors had. I definitely recommend her for anyone!

I have used many counseling services in the past including BetterHelp and had been dissatisfied. However since working with Jennifer I have felt re-newed and refocused. Her person centered approach and allowing me to be who I am has helped my recovery. This may sound cliché but I am really not sure how well I would be if it were not for Jennifer and BetterHelp allowing me to easily change counselors hassle free to get her. I'm forever grateful and thankful for her and this service.

Jennifer by far has really helped me change my life around. When I started therapy I was very unmotivated and honestly I’d even say depressed at times. After 5 months of working together, she’s helped me turn all of that around. She helped me really see the better in myself. I have nothing but gratitude for all of her help. I’m so incredibly happy and much less anxious and it’s all thanks to her guidance!
