Hey, I'm Jennifer Lawrence... not the actress, just the social worker!
I'm a licensed social worker and I've been working as a therapist for just over 10 years. My background includes a range of topics including trauma and grief work, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, and general life "stuff" that comes up where we could all use a little extra support at times. I have experience with individual, couples, family, and group counseling with kids, teens, and adults. I'm culturally aware and have experience working with LGBTQ individuals and families.
In terms of treatment, I pull from a variety of modalities and theories, mostly cognitive behavioral (figuring out how we think of things and then how to think about it in a more helpful way), mindfulness practice (relaxation), and "general" talk therapy to help us figure out what's going on, why you're feeling like you need support, and how we can get you back on track. My approach is collaborative and flexible to move at whatever pace you're comfortable with, while also challenging you to grow and evolve during the process. I want to be more than a "friendly listener" because I believe that your resources, most importantly your time, are important and I want to respect that to best do my job for you. I tend to be solution focused and might recommend reading a book or checking out an app in between sessions to help with that forward momentum. I can bring humor into the therapeutic relationship if that's something that fits with your personality.
Your story is unique and I look forward to hearing and being a part of it!

I love talking with Jennifer! I feel like she really understands me, and thats crucial for me. She is so easy to talk to and most of the time its like I'm talking to one of my friends!
Jennifer is a very caring person, listens when you need her to, responds very quickly and efficiently. Very respectful and holds a conversation very well as she asks most the questions which personally is best for me.
