About me

At any point in time, each of us are facing our own unique life's circumstances and their impact on us can be a lot to bear sometimes.

I understand and value the courage it takes to reach out for help navigating those circumstances. In some cases, those circumstances have to do with our past and some have to do with something more recent. My primary goal is to provide a judgment-free place to grow through and past what is getting in the way of living a fulfilling life.

I've been working as a private practice counselor for over 9 years working with adolescents, adults, couples, and families in Idaho. I've helped treat individuals with anxiety, depression, PTSD, Bipolar disorder, family conflicts, co-parenting issues, blended family issues, self-esteem, and life transitions.

Whether you need assistance developing specific attainable goals for the short or long term, or working through historical, current, or situational challenges as your counselor I feel honored to have the chance to walk alongside another's journey.

Jennifer helped me immensely in a short amount of time. She helped me be brave regarding my actions in a relationship--in ways that I knew down inside but had yet to vocalize and act upon. She is a great listener, and able to quickly hear things that I don't even know I'm saying. She hears what's BEHIND the things I say. She has also given me more confidence in my own skills, abilities and life course. She's been great.

Jennifer has been great. I love how she asks questions that help me see things in a different way. She listens and is great at finding words that describe what I’m getting at. I’m excited to see what’s next and look forward in continuing!

I've never tried therapy before. I had no idea how good it feels to talk to someone about what I'm feeling and getting a genuine response. I've only been communicating with Jennifer for 3 days but that is enough to be optimistic that things are going to get better.

Jen has been so helpful to me. She is incredibly wise but also very relatable. Talking to her feels like having an older sister or relative who has a very sophisticated understanding of the human mind. I have been so amazed by her ability to really listen and pull out insights from what I share, and have appreciated her open and non judgmental style. 11/10 would recommend.
