About Me

Hello! My name is Jennifer and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas and am also licensed through the state of Michigan. I earned a Master of Science in Counseling degree with a concentration in Mental Health. Over the past 7 years, I have counseled adults in the areas of anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and family issues. My experience also has consisted of counseling teens in a residential treatment facility who had sexually offended and working with children and adults who have been abused and/or neglected. I have experience providing individual, group, family and couples therapy in the areas of victimization, trauma, coping skills, forgiveness, self-esteem, conflict resolution, family reunification, and relapse prevention for sex offenders.

Everyone is different and therefore my therapeutic approach is eclectic. This approach incorporates a variety of therapeutic principles in order to meet the specific needs of each individual client. I specifically enjoy using Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and Client-Centered Therapy. I look forward to working with you to create a plan after accessing your needs and concerns. The ultimate goal of your counseling experience is to acquire the tools to promote positive change for personal growth and to positively cope with life events.

I consider myself to be warm, down-to-earth, and approachable. I love to look at the perspective of others in order to understand them and communicate with them more effectively. Congratulations on having the courage to seek counseling! I am glad to take this journey with you.

Jennifer has been a brilliant therapist for me. She has helped me in so many ways. I have been speaking to Jennifer for 8 months and I feel stronger and more confident thanks to her. She always listens and responds with positive ideas and asks questions that make me see things in a different way. We have had many laughs during our sessions and I’ll always be thankful for Jennifer’s support and guidance.

I’m happy that after returning to therapy I was able to work with Jennifer again. She makes it easy to open up and talk

Written by R.O. on Feb 28, 2022 after therapy with Jennifer for 7 months on issues concerning depression, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Jennifer, despite being in another continent always has a friendly approach to our sessions and is always focused on providing tools to help me in situations that I can use in the future, not just quick solutions that will only work in the present. After every session, I feel set-up for my week ahead and feel no pressure to achieve little wins but lovingly motivated instead. If I could sprinkle Jennifer’s wisdom in my own little world I think the people around me would be much happier!

Jennifer has been such a great help to me during my time with her, helping me with coping mechanisms and realizing why I think some of the things I do. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is struggling. Incredibly lovely person

Jennifer is an amazing therapist!!!!

Written by K.I. on Nov 01, 2021 after therapy with Jennifer for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

Jennifer is amazing! She’s been so supportive as I’ve gone through some major life transitions (moving in with my partner, meeting his parents for the first time, getting let go from a job, and the job hunt/interview process, just to name a few). I just accepted a new job offer today and am so thankful and thrilled to have Jennifer as my therapist as I begin this new chapter and journey. The first thing I did after accepting the offer was messaged Jennifer to address some feelings of imposter syndrome already seeping in. She is the third therapist I’ve ever worked with and I find her incredibly easy to open up, and I normally struggle with sharing things as I’m going through them. She’s a gem!

Jennifer is the best! I've been through therapy with other counselors and never felt comfortable enough to open up completely without fear of judgement. Jennifer is amazing at building a safe, open relationship that brings down the walls. I've been with her for more than 6 months now and I feel my life has greatly improved since the start. She is compassionate, empathetic and clearly passionate about the work she does. I feel so lucky to have been matched with her! Thank you, Jennifer!

Written by L.A. on Sep 18, 2021 after therapy with Jennifer for 2 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and grief

Jennifer is pleasant, respectful, empathetic and non-judgmental. After speaking with her I felt relieved and enlightened about a complex family situation. I highly recommend her.

Jen has changed my life, she helped me and is still helping me work through the grief of losing a parent. She has made my life so much better and I look forward to all our sessions

I think she's amazing, when I'm talking to her I forget sometimes that I'm talking to a license therapist and when talking to her its like I'm talking to a close friend who I've been friends with for years

Written by J.O. on Aug 31, 2021 after therapy with Jennifer for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Jennifer is such a lovely person with a warm soul. It was really easy opening up to her as she's so non-judgemental. She's really positive and attentive as well and highlights the parts in my narrative that are going quite well despite my issues, and brings moments of comfort to our sessions. Thanks for your patience and your time. x

Jennifer is a very caring and conscientious person with a natural talent and sensitivity to emphathise with and deeply understand others. If someone is a sensitive and affectionate person like me who needs care, honest emotional support and a lot of encouraging feedback to cope with the challenges of life, Jennifer is a great choice as a counsellor.

Written by N.I. on Aug 19, 2021 after therapy with Jennifer for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and adhd

Jennifer is so kind and understanding. She never judges you for anything you say or talk about. I have always found it difficult to talk about my personal life but with Jennifer it felt so easy to be open about how I felt. We discussed a range of things and she always managed to make me laugh about things too. Love her!!

Written by R.Y. on Jul 15, 2021 after therapy with Jennifer for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and trauma and abuse

Jennifer is incredible. She's a great listener, super thoughtful and in tune with how I'm feeling from session to session. She's given me great links to different resources and helps me navigate through them. Anyone would be lucky to have Jennifer as their counsellor.

Written by H.A. on Jul 14, 2021 after therapy with Jennifer for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and anger management

I've really enjoyed my sessions with Jennifer and highly recommend her. She helped me develop tools to manage my stress and anxiety that I will continue to use even after our sessions have finished. Her approach is very informal and friendly, and maybe even more useful than the feedback she gave me, her attitude helped me to take things less seriously and lighten the pressure I put on myself.

Jennifer gave me incredible guidance, support and advice during a very difficult time, even though we live on opposite sides of the world! I would encourage anyone in need of help to seek Jennifer out.

Jennifer is amazing, as someone else said, she's like an older sister that just listens and doesn't judge. The biggest compliment I can give is that she definitely seems like someone you'd want as a friend. She has helped a lot.

Very attentive and an amazing listener. Jennifer was supportive and understanding and was able to make me think about some situations in a different light. As my first experience with counselling, I don’t think I could’ve gotten a better person!

Written by E.D. on Mar 17, 2021 after therapy with Jennifer for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, intimacy-related issues, anger management, and coping with life changes

Jennifer was of great help in a time of need. Like a lighthouse beckoning a struggling ship to safety before it wrecks itself against the rocks. She has an attentive ear and helped me deal during a massive break up amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. She's a best friend just waiting to be discovered. Would 100% recommend.

Written by H.A. on Mar 02, 2021 after therapy with Jennifer for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, self esteem, coping with life changes, and adhd

Jennifer is a really amazing counsellor, she is great at listening and applying helpful advice or information that you can relate to. I had tried therapy before and had really struggled with opening up but Jennifer is incredibly easy to talk to and she is very kind. I find the worksheets and tasks she asks me to do really do make a difference as they make me think about things that I haven’t thought about before or approach them from a different perspective. I’m really thankful for all of the help that she’s provided me and I would absolutely recommend Jennifer.

Written by L.I. on Feb 03, 2021 after therapy with Jennifer for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and career difficulties

Written by S.H. on Jan 18, 2021 after therapy with Jennifer for 1 month on issues concerning depression, family conflicts, and self esteem

This has been my first time ever getting therapy. I was very hesitant as I wasn’t sure on what to expect. Jennifer has been amazing from day 1, it hasn’t ever felt like i’m talking to a therapist but a friend. She is soo compassionate and empathetic. I would highly recommend her.

Jennifer is an amazing support system for me. She is attentive, and extremely present with me.

Jennifer and I are just getting started but I feel like I’m talking to an old friend, so far so good . I enjoy our time so far . She really makes me feel comfortable because I’m not one to talk to strangers.

Written by S.C. on Nov 28, 2020 after therapy with Jennifer for 2 days on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, coping with life

I have seen many, many counsellors, psychologists and psychiatrist.

I have just started with Jennifer and she is FAR and AWAY the BEST I have ever encountered. I am so massively impressed with the little we’ve done.

I had another counsellor initially but was disappointed and considering leaving Better Help but with Jennifer, I will be happy to keep paying as long as it takes even if it’s decades.

I’ve even tried famous therapists before but Jennifer is the real deal. I can’t give her enough praise or acknowledgment.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this Counsellor. You will not be disappointed!!

Thank you Jennifer, thank you so much. I look forward to working with you further!

Work with me!
