My name is Jennifer Lawrence and I am a licensed professional counselor. I grew up in rural Virginia with a large “village.” From a very young age, I was known to be a helper by my family and friends. I have worked with youth, adults, and families through providing academic, career, and mental health counseling. I am passionate about helping people of all ages, from diverse backgrounds through offering encouragement and support as they pursue their goals. I have served in a variety of settings, including educational institutions and a residential treatment facility. I operate from a person-centered approach with a mixture of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Trauma Focused counseling techniques. You are the expert about you. My focus is to assist you with deciding the path that you would like to follow, acknowledging the reasons that you are motivated to follow that path, identifying and learning the steps to follow that path, and supporting you as you continue on your life’s journey.
I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology, a Master of Education in Higher Education Administration, and a Master of Science in Rehabilitation Counseling. I also hold a Certification in Rehabilitation Counseling (CRC) that focuses on working with individuals with chronic illnesses and disabilities. In my free time, I enjoy kettlebell workouts, traveling and spending time with family and friends.
I am elated and honored to be able to work in a virtual therapeutic setting that provides services that positively impact the lives of others. I look forward to working with you.

Meeting with Jennifer has been one of the greatest experiences I had in my life. She makes me feel comfortable with sharing things I wouldn’t normally and gives great advice. She’s opened me up to a different perspective which not only helped my marriage but it helped me a great deal personally. I now feel more confident in myself and my life’s path.
I absolutely love Jennifer. I thought I would need a therapist with the same cultural background as me in order to better explain my story, and even though Jennifer and I come from different backgrounds, she completely understands me and is willing to take a minute to ask me questions in the event she doesn't understand me. I tend to be pretty scattered brain and she keeps me centered. I lost all confidence prior to my sessions with her and with each session, I'm gaining some of it back. I highly recommend her!
Jennifer is amazing!
Jennifer made me feel like my issues were an important part of her life. We didn’t drown in self analysis or cliche back and forth. We had deep honest conversations about the topics at hand. I never considered therapy in my entire life and honestly thought I was above it. Jennifer was extremely insightful in her discussions and very open about her own experiences. She helped tremendously with learning to cope and navigate day to day struggles of helping a loved one that suffers from mental illness. Jennifer’s conversations will stay with me for life.
jennifer is truly amazing for my first therapist she is definitely now my confidant i can trust her & her advice she is very helpful & personable friendly & wise id definitely recommend her to anyone in need
Jennifer Lawrence is hands down the best counselor I have ever had. She makes me feel comfortable sharing, is understanding of my unique family dynamics and background, and goes above and beyond to forward me resources that are helpful. I know she cares and that puts me at ease. She is helping me work through work stresses and negative environments at work. And also helps me with my family. I've never had such a positive experience all around before. Thank you Jennifer!
Very pleasant and easy to talk to.

My sessions with Jennifer Lawrence have truly been refreshing and healing. To actually be listened to and heard without judgement is such a blessing. Jennifer is gifted and I’m deeply grateful for expertise, compassion and insightful wisdom.
Jennifer is very easy to talk to! Our first session felt like talking to a friend, and as we have worked more together she has offered insight into my life and relationship, and is always there to listen and understand my feelings. I always feel better after speaking with her!
She's great! I'd love to recommend her for some other people.
She is caring and she checks on me throughout the week. She is amazing.
