With 20 years in a helping profession, 12 of which performing clinical/therapeutic services I have had opportunities to work with many unique populations and many amazing clients, all with different strengths and challenges. Some of my strongest work has been with folks struggling with depression, anxiety, bipolar and psychotic disorders. My experience as a Vocational Counselor gave me specialized skills to work with those dealing with employment issues and I am passionate about helping others as they struggle with the stress of work, family and other responsibilities.
My therapeutic approach is fairly laid back aimed at creating a comfortable situation for individuals to open up. Despite a laid back approach I am still very goal focused and client centered. We will work together to figure out solutions and steps to take so you can live your best life. I am looking forward to working with you and helping on your journey.

Hello my experience with Jennifer was amazing to say the least! I loved how patient she was in listening to me and formulating goals that worked with my mindset and current stance. I believe anyone struggling and wishing to get out something burdening you that she is your best and trusted choice. I felt safe sharing my life with her :)

She’s just the best. She listens and takes in what your saying and helps you work towards your goals whatever they are. I really can not recommend her enough. I’ve been through many therapists, but she’s by far the most caring and in tune to what you’re saying that I’ve experienced. Will never switch again :)

It took me a long time to find a therapist that was available but also clicked for me. But once I connected with Jennifer I knew I found the right support for me.
